I thought I was going to run out of gas on my way home the other night. The worst part was that I was stuck in the middle of this crazy traffic jam on the freeway. For some reason, running out of gas is seriously one of my worst nightmares. I start feeling like I'm going to have an anxiety attack if I don't get gas in my car very soon after the light goes on.

My little brother is 22 today. And the strange thing is, that we actually talked on the phone for about 20 minutes today. He isn't much of a talker (at least not with me) so I was so surprised that he didn't just try to get off the phone as quickly as possible. I wish I could have gone to Hawaii to make him a special birthday cake. But alas, it is just not possible to be around for every special occasion when you live so far away. Who knows, maybe one of these days he'll decide to live closer to me and I'll be able to go see him for the weekend on his birthdays.

I've noticed that when it comes to cars, Las Vegas has everything from the extremely expensive exotic cars to the most hideous clunkers you could imagine. I recently came across this beauty:
I'm not sure who this car belongs to, but I'm thinking they are sports fans. I could be wrong, though.

When I get an idea in my head of something I want to do, I feel like I can't stop thinking about it until I go do it. Last night, I had the thought, "No bake cookies sound good right now." 20 minutes later I was still thinking about it. Another 30 minutes go by and I thought, "I wonder if I have all the ingredients to make no bakes." After 10 minutes of searching through unpacked boxes in my garage, I was sad to come to the realization that I didn't have peanut butter (an essential ingredient in no bakes). So sad.

Does anyone else wake up at the exact same time everyday to go to the bathroom. I do. For a while I was waking up exactly an hour before my alarm clock, which was ok because I would always just go right back to sleep. But these last few days, I've been waking up about 15 minutes before my alarm clock rings and it is so annoying because those 15 minutes make a big difference.

So we were sitting in sacrament meeting today, minding our own business, listening to the musical number, when all of the sudden, out of nowhere, we hear this huge shatter. We looked back and saw glass and goldfish all over the cultural hall floor! I felt so bad for the mom who looked absolutely mortified that her child had dropped the container on the floor creating such a racket. Note to self: only use plastic containers when taking snacks to church for the kids.
