Oh, Brother!

   When I think of my brothers I think of...
   ...Stinky clothes with holes
   ...Wild activities in the living room
   ...Smart Aleck remarks
   ...Loud conversations early in the morning (When I'm trying to sleep!)
   ...Oily gun parts spread across the kitchen table
   ...Cheesy jokes (That make me laugh)
   ...Hunting season (All the fun that comes with it!)
   ...Long games of Risk
   ...Piles of leaves (With the leaf blower, not a rake)
   ...Someone to heroically kill spiders
   ...Advice on what kind of vehicle I should buy
   ...Impulsive hugs (After which they try to strangle me)
   ...Late night chats
   ...Someone to try my story ideas on (They always give an honest opinion)
   ...Someone to move heavy things (When you're just a little girl like me you need help!)
   ...Nicknames (They like to call me "Little Sister". Even though I am the oldest)
   ...Someone to build a fire when I'm cold
   ...Someone to hang out with
   ...Someone to fix a stool when it's wobbly
   ...Someone to put the chain back on my ten speed
   ...Someone to make a big mess of the kitchen (And delicious food!)
   ...Someone to try my patience
   But Ultimately...
   ...Someone I couldn't live without!

Personal Update

   I know, I know, I've been neglecting this blog lately. My deepest apologies! I'll try to catch you up on my life real quick.

   I was offered a job several months ago and have been enjoying the freedom of money! :P It's a clerical job. I didn't know that it was called that until last week when I dug in the employee files :D. But anyway, I mostly handle the lower jobs no one else wants to do; Stuffing envelopes, filing invoices, adding up royalties ect. I also keep the bathroom clean, the floor swept, and the desks dust free. Well, mostly dust free anyway. Except when the days get long I really enjoy it! The people there are fun. We can really get to goofing off sometimes. But the work does get done. :)
   I have also been taking Drivers Ed. with my brother and a friend. I really like my drive instructor, and although the classes can often be boring I do learn from them. My drive instructor told me he thinks I'll pass the drive test with no problem. I hope he's right!
   Mom is getting really close to her due date. I can't wait to hold my new little sister! Praying she arrives safely!
   I've already been planning Christmas presents. I made a list of what I want to give each person. Then I had to write one of what I can afford to give them. :P I wanted to make a lot of the presents, but I don't know if I have time!
   I am now teaching the Kindergarten Sunday school class at church. I really enjoy it! The kids are eager to please and quick to learn. I think they are such sweet hearts!
   My dad and one of my brothers have gotten bucks this year. So excited for them! We ate the heart and liver of the most recent one and they were actually quite good! Much to my surprise.
   Well, that wasn't very long, but all I have time for now. Hope you all have a blessed day!~Kimberly Elizabeth
