sad song.

So tonight logan surprised me tonight when i walked in the door. he quickly got me out the door again and surprised me with Cafe Rio.. so yummy and then we went to the dollar theater and saw MAN OF THE YEAR... WAY GOOD! so awesome!! way way way awesome.

on the way home we were listening to a country station and this song came on... i turned it up so i can hear it because i hadn't before... as the song went on i could tell where it was going... by the end of the song.. i was crying.. the silent cry where tears slid quietly down your cheeks and you have that lump in your throat.

Alissa Lies
By: Jason Michael Carroll

My little girl met a new friend just the other day
On the playground at school between the tires and the swing
And she came home with tear-filled eyes
When she said to me daddy, Alyssa lies

Well, I just brushed it off at first
cuz I didnt know how much my little girl had been hurt
Or the things that she had seen
I wasnt ready when I said you can tell me

She said Alyssa lies to the classroom
Alyssa lies everyday at school
Alyssa lies to the teachers
As she tries to cover every bruise

My little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep
As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet
God bless my mom and my dad
And my new friend Alyssa, oh, I know she needs you bad

Because Alyssa lies to the classroom
Alyssa lies everyday at school
Alyssa lies to the teachers
As she tries to cover every bruise

I had the worst night of sleep in years
As I tried to think of a way to calm her fears
I knew exactly what I had to do
But when we got to school on Monday, I heard the news

My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad
The lump in my throat grew bigger with every question that she asked
Until I felt the tears run down my face
And I told her that Alyssa wouldnt be at school today
Cuz she doesnt lie in the classroom

She doesnt lie anymore at school
Alyssa lies with Jesus
Because theres nothing anyone would do

Tears filled my eyes when my little girl asked me why Alyssa lies
Oh daddy, oh daddy tell me why Alyssa lies

{hello mr. random}

I absoutly love this picture!! i took it back sometime in 2004. i played with it a few times, but never scrapped it, but tonight i was totally inspired to scrap it. My sister gave me a Gift Certificate to 2peas for babysitting.. THANK YOU AMY! i totally used it all tonight.. but ALOT! love that alpha.. (French Laundry) and the papers and the tape measurer... totally into those right now.. love it (made by tia) anywho well not too much is going on here.

Logan and I are just going day by day living life.

Tonight i had my last session for my depression and lets just say i felt great. at first i was super nervous about seeing a therapyst but its totally a 180 from what i thought it would be like.. i totally felt like i would be judged.. he helped me not judged me. he became a friend. someone that listened and helped me. i have grown up so much lately and im so grateful for that. Logan and i have grown so much closer to eachother. i feel that the world is right again.. im back on my feet instead of floating around in space.

Working is fantastic. my classroom is beautifully clean and the kids are wonderful. i will miss C St. so much! it will be super hard to leave and say goodbye. They dont have a teacher to replace me yet... kinda nervous because the kids are anxious to know who will be watching them... dont blame them. :) im anxious too!

grown alot closer to friends here and it will be rough saying goodbye.. but its good to know i will visit again. its nice having friends :).

Love this time of year.. everything is warm and cozy. fresh snow on the ground, kids in boots, coats, hats, scarfs, and gloves. Snow ball fights, melting snowmen, warm cocoa each morning... mmmm... this is a good time of year. Going sledding Friday... cant wait.. will be so much fun!

We're hoping to hit the slopes on Christmas day... do a mid-day. go up about noon and then get home at night... eat yummy ham! *need to buy ham* :)

Tonight went shopping to make chocolate dipped pretzels... cant wait to eat those... and pass them out to people :)

well after all this randomness i think i will head off to dreamland. super tired tonight. see you all around! love you.

unto number 5!!!
