RA Story of the Week...

This week has been so much better than last week. I didn't even get in any car accidents! My headaches have been a lot better, and thanks to some magical oils from Young Living Farms and a husband who gives me massages, my neck isn't hurting nearly as much. School started, and I think I'm really going to enjoy my classes. I've been to all but one, and I'll find out how that one is tonight from 8:00-10:30. I know it's kind of a late class, but it's okay.

I want to tell you a story. Did I mention that my husband and I are RAs in a dorm here at Snow? Well, we are. Not just any dorm, we're in the ALL GIRLS building. That means a couple of things....first, that there are about 50 girls who flirt with my husband on a daily basis, and second, that about every other night we are on duty and get to leave our apartment door wide open for people to enter as they wish. :) Last night when we opened the door several girls came in and wanted to play a game. So we played, but right around kick out time these girls decided that it would be really cool to lick their hands and try to rub it on Russell. Disgusting, I know! So he ended up running out of our apartment and going upstairs to the other RA's room where he would be safe.

The girls were just waiting outside the door, saying that he'd have to come out eventually. They even held his duck and my toothpaste hostage claiming that they were going to put toothpaste on the duck. I hung out in the apartment and did my own thing because it was obvious that I couldn’t help him out. I was just in the kitchen minding my own business, and all of a sudden a girl came in and tried to steal my keys! I fought her off, and when she left, Russell called me from the other RA’s phone. We didn’t make any real plans, but I told him I was going to crack the back door in case he saw a chance to get away. We hung up, and before I knew what was happening I was being kidnapped!!! Apparently the girls thought that maybe Russell loves me more than he loves his duck and that he would come out if he knew that they had me.

I agreed to go with the girls, and I suggested that maybe the kidnapping would seem more convincing if they put a blanket over my head. They thought that was a great idea, and they also thought that meant that I was on their team! So I didn’t fight them as they lead me upstairs, but as soon as we got there I started fighting, the girl yelled to the other girls that she needed help and that I was going to get away. They all came to help her get me, while in the meantime Russell escaped! I met him downstairs and we were both able to get into our apartment safely. :) The girls were pretty bummed and it was funny!

Anyway, enough of that! Today Jake and I went and set up a table in Manti, and this weekend we are going to be giving some awesome things out at the Sanpete County Fair! Wish us luck!

It's Been A LONG Week!

This week hasn’t been all that great for me, I’m not going to lie. I arrived in Logan safe and sound on Monday, but on my way home on Tuesday I wasn’t so lucky. I was just driving along, minding my own business when traffic slowed way down. I slowed down too, thinking, “Great! This is going to take forever!” All of a sudden I heard a noise and felt my head slam against my seat. To make a long story short, I ended up having a concussion, visiting the emergency room, having my mom drive me to Nephi where I spent the night, and I’ve had a pounding headache and super sore neck for the past three days. I’m sad to say that the ShaNeil-Mobile is probably no more. :( I’m really sad about that… So anyway, I know I was supposed to have this week’s post up earlier, but it’s quite honestly been the least of my worries! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! :)
