Funny Story!!!

Okay so funny funny story...well it actually isn't funny. Now it is just a pain. So on Saturday I was riding in a big truck with my dad and we were hauling dirt into the backyard of our house and I had just gotten back from cleaning the church that morning. So...I was still in my good clothes cause I knew I would just be vacuuming the church and I had to look good for the boys that were going to be there obviously. Well we got back and I got in the truck with my dad. After a bit I realized that I was getting dusty and that I should run in and change my clothes and put the ones I was wearing in the wash before I forgot. Well I didn't realize that I still had my cellular device in my back pocket still and put my clothes in the wash. As I was getting ready to head back out to the truck I thought to myself and I said "Self, you need to grab your phone before you go outside." Just as I thought that I heard a clunking noise coming from the washer. That is when it clicked so I ran over and tried to open it as fast as I could but the washer was on lock. Finally it drained and I got my phone out. Well long story short it didn't turn on so I had to go get a new one. But I lost all of my numbers in my Jessica and Necia I NEED YOUR NUMBERS!!!!! It was also real funny cause while I was at the cell phone store a little old lady came in and walked up to a man and she said "I have never been helped by a man so rolly before." It was hilarious! That made my day. So yeah...that is my story. I hope all is well with all of you! LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!

Too long...

So I was thinking and realized that I was the one that was so adamant that we all write on this blog A LOT...and yet here I am and I haven't written for a really long time so since I have nothing to do these days, I thought I'd drop a note :) So my sister visited all last week with my niece and it was so much fun! My niece is so fun and she's talking so much (she's 2) so it's hilarious to hear what words she picks up on and listen to how she pronounces them. Kids are the best, they definitely put life into perspective sometimes. I wish I had a really exciting story or something fun to tell you girls but...nothing comes to mind! I'm really ready to be back at school and be busy again! I know that will change once I start, but I decided I do a lot better when I'm busy rather than not having much to do. I am reading the book My Sister's Keeper that the movie was based off of. So far, it's really good but I heard the ending is nothing like the movie so I'm excited to find out what happens. How are you girls?? I know I talked to you last night but not for very long so fill me in on all the fun stuff! I miss you all!!

So seeing as how no one has written on our blog for a while and I am bored I figured I would do so, not that I have much to say but still. I will tell you a little about what I have done this last week. Nothing. That is about it. No I am kidding, I have applied to more jobs and still nothing. I have also been working a ton on my applications for the interior design program at both BYU-I and LDSBC. A ton of my family wants me to go to LDSBC just because it is closer to them which I would be okay with. I love Utah so that would be fine although I would miss Rexburg a ton! I still haven't heard from Cole at all and it has gotten easier not talking to him at all. Sometimes it still stinks and if something happens I think without thinking oh I should tell cole that or something lame and then I realize how stupid I am. I have been talking a lot to a friend of mine named Sean. He is a sweetheart but we are just friends. He is a good guy so don't get any ideas! ha ha ha! I have also been watching a lot of baseball with my brother and I really enjoy it! Those guys are awesome when they don't take steriods! ha ha! Necia and Jessica you would be so proud of me because I have been playing a ton of tennis! Crazy I know but I can see why you like it so much! I am not very good but its still fun and I am getting the hang of it! :) My theories on life have grown as well...such as...eternity is a very very very long time and we are here for like a milli of that so why are we sad or worried about boys and who likes us and who doesn't. Its all about being me and being happy and I will be fine! Life is great so why not enjoy it! :) Well I love you girls! Remember who you are and Jesus loves you! THE CHURCH IS TRUE!!!! Don't talk to strangers!!!

All i have to say is that you two, as in Amanda and Tiffany, BEST be coming to live with us in the fall!!! I have a bit of information that might help you guys make up your it is: They repainted our front door! See I knew that would make you want to come live here!!!! It actually kind of creeped me out because I came out of my room today, i was all alone, and i went into the kitchen....and our front door was wide open! I thought we were being robbed or something! but no worries i am ok and all of my stuff is still here! haha
Love you,

Rough news.... have some bad news possibly. Seeing as how I haven't gotten a job yet and still trying to get into the interior design program I might have to live at home for the fall semester. It is still up in the air but I have to make a decision by Monday so I can tell Anne to sell my contract or not to sell my contract. Now this totally sucks and my life is kind of in a whirlwind right now but you got to do what you got to do right? But my parents said that you guys can come live with us too! So that would be fun! Sarah knows how much fun it is at my house...tell em Sarah! So much fun! Words cannot discribe the fun you would have here! Just know I love you girls! Remember who you are, Jesus loves you, stand a little taller today! May the spirit be with you...your sister in the gospel, Amanda Jo Barrus

I miss you girls!

I just read both your posts and was so excited but then got really sad because I think we need to all be back together and all our problems would be solved! ha oh man, I wish, but I really do miss you girls and Amanda, I wish I was there! This whole thing makes me so sad and I just wish that there was something I could do, because I agree that this whole thing is too weird to not have something wrong. I just hope that you find out something soon, because waiting this long is not what you should have to go through! And..your spill about boys and how scary it is, I whole-heartedly agree! I was thinking about that the other day and about dating, and how guys have the biggest effect on us and how easy it is for them to be somebody they aren't while dating and then their real person comes out after marriage...I know that that's why it's so important to pray about it and everything, but it still scares me really bad! I just always hope that I'm not blinded by how flattering a guy can be while dating, and that I see those red flags beforehand, you know?
Sarah, I'm sorry about work!! I'm having the hardest time finding a job, and have just about given up on's the sad part, I'm 19 and I don't have any work experience...every break I've had from school that I could have had a job, I went straight to Utah and helped my sisters with their kids and I can't believe I never thought to get a job! Now, my resume is so lame and I don't have anything to show for watching kids all summer for my sisters and nobody will even take me seriously really because of it..I don't know what else to do because there are like no places to work here either! It's a joke! Sorry...that was my little rant for the day, but man I just feel so lame. It's not like I don't know how to work and work hard, but with no experience to show for it, employers don't really take the time to see that I guess.
I so wish we were all back in the same place, it sounds like we could all use it!! I love you girls and miss you!! Keep posting blogs, I love hearing about everything!!

Boy...oh boy!

So I have been pondering things know life and such. Sarah left me so I have lots of time at night to just think because she isn't there to tell me bedtime stories. I sure do miss that. But something still doesn't feel right about Cole. I still haven't heard from him in days which is really weird. People say well maybe he is just ignoring you and doesn't want to talk to you anymore which very well could be what is going on. But something in my gut is telling me that that isn't what is going on. Something just doesn't feel right. I don't know maybe that is just what I want to think. Anyways...I have thought lots about the impact guys have on girls. Guys could say anything to a girl and get them to do anything. Girls are so gullible and fall for it. I think that guys know it too. Some use that to their advantage and I have realized that girls need to be careful. We live in a crazy world and it is so hard to find a decent guy out there. Its scary to think about what could happen. So that is part of what is going on in my life. Another item of business is I think I have to go get my foot x-rayed today. It has been bothering me for a while and either way I think I need it checked to make sure nothing is wrong. I do have tendonitis in both of my feet but this is a constant pain. Its weird. Oh the joy my life has become. I think it is because I don't see you girls every day! I need you! I miss you all very much!!! I hope all is well and I love you girls!!! -Amanda
