I can honestly tell you all that I hate the snow. I really thought I was going to die last night as I was driving home from work. I was on the highway heading from Springville into Mapleton. As I got up the hill I thought to myself, "The hard parts are over. I'll make it home now." How wrong I was. Right then the wind started blowing like crazy and my car was swaying. The car in front of me turned off, so I was now leading the line of cars. I was sure I was going to be at fault for leading all of us off a cliff (although there are no cliffs in Mapleton, I was sure I would find one.) I couldn't even see a foot in front of me. I was shaking so bad, all I could do was cry. I could only see the turn to Maple St because I saw the light of a very snow covered gas station. As I turned onto Maple, a very large truck came up behind me and tailed me the whole way home. I was so frusterated because I couldn't see anything and with the trucks lights behind me it minimized my sight even more. I won't lie, I almost hit a few garbage cans because I couldn't see how close I was to the curb. I have decided that Mapleton should get those bumber things like they have in California. It would help for those days that you cannot see. Just a thought. I also was having thoughts of vengence on the Mayor of Mapleton for not clearing the roads. I was not a very happy person. Just so everyone knows, if there is a report of someone egging the Mayors house, just know it was me. Or even better, hooking the hose up to there house and spraying it so everything freezes. Just a few I came up with yesterday on my very stressful drive home.

Apparently, I'm a little bad at math. I will be in Arizona for 6 days, not 4. Also on my non math skills, my boss left early yesterday, so I had to help balance out. I added an extra hundred dollars to the cash. I don't know how I did it, but I did. We were running around like our heads were cut off trying to find one hundred dollars in cash. I've a feeling, I will never live that down. In my defense, my last real math class was when I was a sophomore in high school. I just can't do basic math anymore. That's what calculators are for, right? I'm all about the easy way out.

Also since it is so close to Thanksgiving, and this is probably the only post I will do before Thanksgiving, I would like to make my list. Ready? Read it thouroughly.

I am thankful for my mom. She does so much for me that I don't even notice. She is easily the best mom ever. I do think that was really conversed about in Heaven. I'm sure there was fighting over me. Mostly I'm sure the fighting was because no one wanted me, but mom stepped in because she knew I would be "special."

I am thankful for my dad. He's possibly the funniest guy I've ever met. Sometimes it ticks me off that he can make me laugh when I really don't want to, but in the long run, it takes the anger away.

I am thankful for Christy. She pretty much does things for me that she really doesn't want to. She the best oldest sister I could ask for. Even if she thought I was going to be black.

I am thankful for Josh. He can joke around and make sure people know he's joking. Even if he does go too far, he always knows how to make it better. He is the best big brother I have.

I am thankful for Angela. She brings such an awesome spirit to our family. She also has such an awesome laugh. I love to hear her laugh.

I am thankful for K'Lynn. It's crazy that she already acts older than me. I didn't think that would happen for a while.

I am thankful for Kandace. She is so funny, and just so fun to be around. She's great. I love her craziness.

I am thankful for Joe. He's the best little brother ever. He is always willing to do anything for me. Even pay $100 for me when I missed my flight by 4 days. I love him so much.

I am thankful for Amanda. She is the perfect example of patience to me. She's already teaching me how to be a good mom. I can't even imagine how hard that would be.

I am thankful for Chase. I honestly love how fun he is. Also how he didn't even know me, but it took him like 1 second to come play with me.

I am thankful for Jimmy. I love his "redrum" voice when he gets frusterated. I love talking to him on the phone because I can't understand him and it makes me laugh really hard. I try really hard, I guess I just wasn't given the gift of interpreting tongues.

I am thankful for Melissa. She does stuff for me even if she doesn't really want to. She is also there if I ever need anyone to hang out with, or go to a movie with.

I am thankful for Jaime. I am glad she is so hospitable. I honestly miss living with her. I wish I could go back in time. I miss her a lot.

I am thankful for Spencer. He brings such a great feeling to our family. He is always his best self, and I love that.

I am thankful for Spencer Jr. He is so funny and so fun to play with. I will never get used to calling him spencer though.

I am thankful for Audrey. Everyone at work calls her my mini me because she looks like me and when I tell them stories about her, they think it's something I would do or say. She makes me laugh so hard. She is such a joy to me.

I am thankful for Isaac, even though he doesn't like me so much, I still love him. I love to tease him. Maybe that's why he doesn't like me so much.

I am thankful for Andrea. She is so easy to talk to. I miss living in Provo, because I can't just run to her apartment to talk to her. I love her lifetime of knowledge.

I am thankful for Sean. I don't know anyone better for Andrea. I love how he brings his light to our family.

I am thankful for Haden. I don't know that I've seen a happier baby in all my life.

That is the list of my most thankfuls. I thought everyone should know how much they mean to me. I love my family so very much.

High School

Lately I have had the feelings of being back in high school. One of my friends came home from his mission about 2 weeks ago, and my friend Holly has been texting me just to tell me she's with him as if this is supposed to bring me feelings of jealousy. Really all it does is bring out the snot in me. I guess, I am kind of feeling bad about some of the things I've sent to her in response. My latest one was, "Am I supposed to be feeling like I'm back in high school? Or am I not understanding your texts?" She has yet to respond and it's been a few days. I probably shouldn't have said that. But I did and it's overwith now. What do ya do?

On a happy note. I am going to Arizona to visit Jaime and Spencer and their children. I'm excited about it. It'll be fun. I'm going over Thanksgiving. Mostly because I am going to be there for four days but I only had to take two off work. It's pretty exciting for me.

My Weekend in St. George.

Sorry I haven't written for a while. I have been pretty preoccupied. Last Week I went to St George for one of my friends birthdays.

This is the crew outside of Iggys. Mostly I didn't have so much fun. I won't lie. I was pretty bored the whole time. It wasn't so much fun for me. But it was nice to have a break from the stresses that I do enjoy while at work.

Lately I have been working for another girl at work who recently quit. I have been doing two people's jobs. It drives me crazy. I've been working for Dr. Staheli and doing all of the filing for 5 other Dr.'s as well. It's not making me too pleasant while at work. Today I was talking to my boss because she's trying to hire someone, but Dr. Staheli is too picky. I'm going crazy. I think I've been yelled at more this week than I ever have in my life. Dr. Staheli is both an Internist and a Sleep Specialist, so his billing codes are very difficult for me to figure out. And he gets paid more for his sleep pt's so I get very confused on a regular basis and that tends to frusterates Dr. Staheli. I constantly feel stupid and I hate it. But, what do you do?

Sorry about that little tangent. This is me camping in St. George. We slept in the bed of a truck. I think this was the best part of the whole trip. I got to roast marshmallows and such. It was very fun. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

This one is the last day I was in St. George. We went to a park. It was pretty fun. Mostly I just wanted to be home at this point.

I will have some pictures up from Halloween in a few days. Sorry this was such a random post. I felt bad that I haven't been writing on my blog, but at the same time I'm so frusterated from work I kind of have a one track mind. So I am very sorry.

The caffeine addict

Hello. My name is Annalisa Keddington. I am a caffeine-a-holic. I have been caffeine free for 10 days!!!

That's right. 10 days. Personally I am very proud of myself. Today one of our drug reps came in and gave me a 1 liter of Mt. Dew. I couldn't say I didn't drink it anymore, so I waited until he left before I gave it to a girl at work. It was so hard for me to just leave a cold Mt. Dew on my desk and not drink it. I really struggled today, but I didn't drink it. I was very proud of myself. I haven't had soda for 9 days which is also very good for me. I just wanted everyone to know, that I am slowly becoming caffeine free!!!

When Boredom Strikes at Work

Lately I've been bringing a book to work because I personally get really slow near the end of the day. Tuesdays are especially bad because I do the on-call schedule for all of the dr.'s, so I try to finish faxes really fast so I can get to the on-call schedule. Every week, it seems, I forget how fast the on-call schedule is so I sit all day long doing nothing but running to and from the fax machine with just a little stack of one or two faxes. It's kind of a pain. Tuesdays are my worst days. Luckily for me, they have turned websense off if only for a few minutes, so I will have something to do. I thought it was pretty nice of them really.
If I forget to bring a book, I end up deep cleaning my desk. I take all of the files out and wipe them down, everything. It tends to make the day go a little bit faster.
Totally off topic, if dad has not already told you my funny story of the weekend... I was really sick on Saturday and I was puking my guts out and the toilet seat fell on my head. Dad and melissa thought it was pretty funny. I guess I do to, now that my head isn't pounding. I had a migraine and the seat hit me pretty hard.

My Birthday

So, you all probably know already, but I invited a lot of my friends to come to Tucanos on my birthday and I made the reservations for 15 and no one showed up. I ate at Tucanos by myself at my waitress felt bad for me so she bought my dinner. However, I have the coolest family ever and they took me out to eat at Applebees. It was pretty awesome I wont lie. They're better than any of my friends, easily!! I love my family so very much. I can't wait until we can all be together again!!! I loved it so much. It was great.

Utah drivers

I know I am one, but I have had the WORST experience of my life today with the stupid drivers between Mapleton and Provo. It took me 45 minutes to get to work today. I got on the freeway and it was a dead stop. So I had this great idea to get off at the next Springville exit. However, the car accident was in the middle of the two exits, so once everyone stopped gawking at the accident and started moving, I sped my way to the Provo Center Street exit. When you get off the exit it is two lanes for about 2-3 yards then it goes to one lane. However, no one would let me in this morning. I had to force my way into the lane. I was so irritated. Then once off the off-ramp and onto Center Street, I have to get into the far left lane heading West so I can turn North on 5th West. There was a nice gap so I could get in, and traffic was moving very smoothly, but the second I put on my blinker, the stupid Scion behind me felt the need to speed up and not let me in. I was so frusterated. Then I got stopped at every single red light there is on my way from the exit to my work. Once I got in the parking lot, about 15 minutes late for work, I thought I had a free ride to my parking spot, however, some moron girl was driving on the wrong side of the road and blocking my spot. I was so frusterated when I got into work, I couldn't keep from shaking. I had my Mt. Dew in hand as I walked in and my boss just gave me a look. Then said, "I know when you walk in with a Mt. Dew, I shouldn't even ask." I love that I have such an understanding boss. To make matters worse, the first patient I talked to yelled at me for turning the phones on late. She was lucky I had my Mt. Dew. That's all I've got to say.

OK so It's not all I have to say. On my way home, traffic was horrible on the freeway because it was 5:30pm (I got off late because people can't count). When I got off the freeway in Springville, I somehow got stuck behind some grandma talking on her cell phone and going 25 on that highway right off the freeway. Then she turned right to get onto the highway to go to Mapleton. I passed her as soon as I could, but she started going 60 the second she got onto the two lanes. I passed her anyway because I was so frusterated, then some stupid Toyota Tacoma cut me off and turned onto Maple st and went 25 on Maple St. I gave up. I am going to invest in a jetpack, so I can just fly to work.

I have decided that I really want to go see Wicked when it comes into SLC next year. I think it would be way fun. Plus, I pretty much love it. However, the only tickets available are $121-$313. Pretty much I really want to go. I think we should have a girls night out and go to Wicked. That would be way awesome, don't you all think? We could sit in orchestra seats for $313. You know you want to. It will be fun... Am I tempting anyone but myself?

I have decided I don't want to move. Too bad that the complex is all filled up eh? I have these two awesome roommates from England. They freaking rock. We have had so much fun this passed week doing American things, they have never done before. They were amazed that resteraunts give you free icecream on your birthday. They love S'mores, the dollar movie, and Walmart. That's right, I converted them to Walmart. They are hilarious. We also went to a beauty pageant up in Layton then to Crown Burger after. I don't want to leave now. I feel I have so much more to teach them. They have never heard of Chris Farley. But no, really, we have so much fun. I have someone to go on walks with me now. It's way fun.
So I am starting to move out tomorrow and I really don't want to pack. Hence, the blog. I'm putting it off as long as possible. I don't really want to clean. I don't want to pack. I would rather be watching a movie with the rest of the people in my apt. Well, I had better do everything so I can be ready to move most everything tomorrow. I love you all!!!! Until next time.

I'm sorry, so sorry

So since people are getting angry because I never write anything on my blog, I am writing something for you all now.
So, here's what's happened since you last heard from me...

I went boating and got extremely sunburned, but I have a new hobby. I am in love with wave running. I find it extremely fun. I may need to buy one when I'm extremely rich. That will be my goal. To have a wave runner.

Funny story... I was sitting here at my computer in my room and someone knocked on my window. Call me paranoid, but I walked outside to see if it was someone I knew. It was some guy in a ninja suit. FREAKY EH? About a month ago someone rang my doorbell pretty late at night, and I looked through the peep-hole and some guy in a gorilla suit was outside my door. Why do people try to scare me? I don't understand. I swear I'm not very fun to scare. I just don't understand it. I think that's all that's been going on. If I remember anything else, I'll be sure to tell you all...

One more thing! I just wanted to tell my family how much I love them and miss them all. I can't wait until we are all together again. I love you all so much!!! You are the greatest!!

My Week

This week has been a pretty chill one. I had this whole week off, which has been great, because thanks to the 4th of July weekend I have not worked since the 3rd of July. It has been wonderful!!

I have stayed at my parents house since the night of the third. It's been great. I mean, I love my roommate and everything, it's just been nice not having to make forced conversation.

On the Fourth, I went to the parade and after that I went to Stadium of Fire to watch the fireworks. I wont lie, I still think they're cool.

On the 6th, I met the two newest members of the fam. They are pretty awesome I wont lie. Although I still have kind of a hard time with the names though. I kind of felt bad about that. I played ball with Audrey, Brigham, and Chase. It was pretty awesome. Dude, that kid is CRAZY, but in a good way. It's all pretty crazy really.

I've been sleeping outside in the tent this week because I'm pretty sure it's the closest to real camping this summer. It's been fun. Kind of chilly. But, whatev.

Tomorrow night, however, I will be returning back to Provo and returning to the real world. I am not excited. I have thouroughly enjoyed my 6 working days off. It has been great. Alas, I will live. I mean I only work 16 days this month. I think I'll survive the month of July. This is why July is and always will be, my favorite month.

Until next time...
