A Daily Occurance

Amanda and I were reading our scriptures. I was sitting on my computer rolling chair and leaning on my bed reading. Well, I found a scripture I liked and wanted to get a scripture marker to mark it. I had to put my church bag behind my laundry basket. So, I rolled over to the basket. I have hard wood floor in my bedroom. My laundry basket is in between my dresser and the wall. I had a TV tray in front of my Laundry basket. Not even worrying about getting up to reach behind my laundry basket, I sat right on the edge the chair. Now, reminding you that I was on a rolling chair, on hard wood floor, and reaching for something, what do you think is going to happen? Well, I think what your thinking is right, and that is exactly what happened to me. As I was reaching, the chair just rolled right out from under me and fell on its side. I had one arm on top of the laundry basket in some weird and VERY uncomfortable position. My other arm was wrapped around the back of the chair. The chair could not go anywhere due to my bed. I was not wearing socks so my feet would not slide. I was in a squatting position, my feet under the TV table, back against my dresser, my butt not touching the ground, and unable to move.
Amanda was laying on her bed and immediately looked at me and was laughing at me so hard she could not get up off her bed.
Then I say, "HELP me Amanda, I'm STUCK!!!!"
That really got her rolling. Then I started laughing really hard. Since she wasn't helping me, I tried to figure out a way to get out myself. So I tried to slide my feet down so I could sit, but my feet only slid a little bit, I was in an even more uncomfortable position, and the handles on my dresser started pressing into my back. I told Amanda that she needed to help me. As soon as she walked around my bed and saw the whole position, it looked like she was about to either pee her pants or pass out she was laughing so hard. At the time, I was just chuckling to myself thinking how ridiculous I must look. Finally, Amanda moved the chair and I just fell to the floor and started laughing.

Caitlin, Please Stop!

Amanda was lying on her bed doing her homework. I come in and start doing my tap dance on the hard wood floor with my tennis shoes on.
Amanda says, "Caitlin, please stop."
Then i sit down in my computer chair to start cleaning off my desk, and not thinking at all, I start tapping my feet again.
"Caitlin, please stop," Amanda says a little more sternly.
Then Thinking if I take off my shoes I won't make that much noise, I take my shoes off and make more noise.
"Caitlin, please stop," Amanda says sternly.
"Sorry, I was trying to take off my shoes," I said.
Amanda and I had an idea taht we should put our mormon adds around the top of the wall in our as a border. I started doing that. While I was doing that, I started singing. Again, not even thinking about it.
"Caitlin, Please Stop!" Amanda said again.
"Sorry," I said.
I had to move the step stool to a different part of the room, I made some more noise. I kept asking Amanda if it looked good, and I could tell she was getting (playfully) frustrated with me. Then again, I start singing. Again, not even thinking about it.
"Caitlin, Please STOP!" Amanda said.
"I'm sorry. What homework are you doing anyways?" I asked.
"Anatomy," Amanda said.
"Is it hard?" I asked.
"Yes, that is why I dont have any music on or anything."
"Well then I guess I'm not helping any," I said totally innocent and in a fuuny accent.

As I'm Trying to print this out so I can read it to everyone, the stupid printer would not work. I'm standing in from of the computer, yelling at the printer because it would not take the paper. After about 5 minutes of this, I finally pull out my flash drive to save it so I could go and print it out on the computer in teh living room. As soon as I stopped yelling at the printer, Amanda started busting out laughing. Of course I joined her.
And she said, "And you still won't be QUIET!!!!!!"

In December, my school has their Sadies. My best friend, Avery and I decided we wanted to ask these two guys that we both liked to hang out with. We were trying to figure out everything we wanted to do and most of all how to ask the guys. I looked online to get some ideas when i ran across this idea. I called Avery and told her how we should ask the guys. She thought it was a great idea. The next day we went into the Dean's office and asked him if he could help us ask these two guys to Sadies. He said that he couldn't do that but if we talked to the campus officer and he would do it then we could. We went to go talk to the officer and he said he would do it. The next day, Avery and I were called out of our 2nd period class to go to the office. We met up there then went to the officer's office. We hid in his bathroom and had the door cracked open. When we heard that Jon, the guy I was asking to Sadies, came in, Avery and I started shaking and getting really nervous. The Officer started asking him questions about his classes and grades and what he was doing the night before. Then we heard Chase come in and the officer started asking him the same questions. Then the officer said, "Okay, well I guess that since you guys arent answer my questions I'm going to have to ask you to stand up, turn around, and put your hands behind your back." Then the officer came in the bathroom and waved at us to come out. The officer said, "I have one more question to ask you guys, you may turn around." When they turned around, Avery and I asked the guys to Sadies. The guys started laughing and said 'yes'. (of course)

Football playoffs

My high school band got the chance to travel with the varsity football players to go to Playoffs. My two best friends, Avery, Cassy, and I we were sooo excited. We always wanted to travel with the football players. We got to go Virgin Valley, a two hour drive in a bus. On the way back to Boulder, our bus driver was nice enough to stop for 30 minutes and let us get something to eat. I forgot my converse in the band room and didnt feel like wearing my marching shoes so i decided to just go in my socks. I didnt know that Jack-in-the-box was all the way across the parking lot until we started walking there. Cassy is in l0ve with the bib's of the band uniform, she is always wearing it folded at the waist. She offered to give me a piggy back ride to jack-in-the-box. When I got on her back we fell behind everyone else. She was running through the parking lot trying to catch up with the rest of our group, with me on her back, hollering, "My pants are falling!!!" When we caught up with everyone, we all stopped in the middle of the road and she put me down and said, "Look at my pants!!" We all looked and her pants were around her ankles. She quickly pulled her pants up, then she gave me another piggy back ride and ran into Jack-in-the-box. Some other kids from the band were in there waiting to get their food. When it was my turn to order Jon, a guy in the drum line with me, said, "Can you not read Caitlin?" I looked at him and he pointed to a sign above me on the wall. I looked at the sign and it said, "No shirt, No shoes, No service." Then everyone started to chuckle and started to tease me about it. Luckly the people working didnt notice. :)

Marching Band

Every time I have to perform in the Marching Band, I'm usually not nervous until about 2 hours before we go onto the field when the teacher and staff go crazy because they are so nervous the cant do anything and everything is going wrong. But then when it's finally time to line up, hearing our school announced, everyone cheering for us, marching onto the track, hearing my family say,"GO BUGGY!!!" That all gives me the chills. I would have to say that is my favorite part. But then when the Drum Major starts counting you off to start playing, i get all these worries swarming in my head saying, i don't know my music, i cant remember where I'm supposed to march first, oh my gosh, i cant do this what am i doing!!! All I do is take a deep breath, look at my mom in the audience, say to myself that i know my music, and i know where I'm supposed to march first. Then when i start to play and march, I relax and have fun.

Whos next to make dad mad

The first time someone made dad mad in the car was in the summer of 2007. We went on a 3 week trip to Yellowstone. One day all 5 of us piled into the pt cruiser. My two older sisters and i were all crazy hyper and loud. My dad and step mom, Cindy, kept telling us to be quiet, but that was the last thing we wanted to be so of course, we were quiet for a couple min, but then something would make us loud again. Finally, not even 15 min away from our camp site, my dad got so frustrated, he slammed on the brakes, turned around in his seat and yelled at the top of his lungs, "SHUT UP!!!!" Then, our lovely sister Brittney, said, "whoa" Amanda and i were trying so hard not to laugh, but then we made eye contact and we just started laughing so hard we couldn't stop. That made our dad even more mad.
The second time that we made our dad mad in the car was when we were going out to dinner. We were all in the truck, Amanda, Brittney, and I were all in the back. Brittney had gotten a metal 7-11 straw a few days ago and she still had it with her. She was teasing Amanda about it, so Amanda grabbed the straw but accidentally let go of it and i flew and hit the window. Since the straw was metal it made a really loud noise that scared the crap out of my dad. He ducked into the steering wheel and screamed "WHAT WAS THAT?!?!?" Amanda, Brittney, and I could hardly answer him without us cracking up.

See son, thats why you dont sit on poles

In band in 8th grade, we went on a 3 day trip to Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, and California Adventures. Avery, Karlee, and I were in a group. It was a really hot day so we wanted to get wet so we went on Splash Mountain in Disneyland. We were in the tunnel part of the line. Karlee and Avery were sitting on the railing. There was rock walling behind them, but there was space between the railing and the wall. Karlee leaned back and she said, "Oh Avery you need to lean up against the wall, it's nice and cool." So Avery went to go lean up against the wall but the it was farther away then she thought, so when she began to lean back she missed the wall and fell back and was hanging upside down, hanging on for dear life onto the railing. And was all we heard was Avery say, "Hey you guys, I could use a little help here." She looked like an Opossum with its head tucked in hanging on a railing. Me and Karlee were laughing so hard we could hardly help her up. When we finally got her up, the guy behind us said to his son, "See son, that's why you don't sit on poles."
