me? you godda be kiddin.

well well well..im pretty much doing this blog for anna.....let her get another good ole laugh. laughing is good. so, for the past four years i have had a number of callings. i started out in young womens and loved every single second of it! movie nights, pedicures, gossip, and ice cream. man i miss all that teen anxt! after arden was born i was moved into nurshry for about two years. nurshry was....how do i say this? um...hillarious?! yeah it was. fights and blocks and snack time. lets not forget that my kid went through a "fun" biting stage during the last half of my calling. here is me when parents picked up the kids; "he/she got bit...by that little bald one over there, whose kid is that anyway?" not mine!! so now, thats done with. we moved and now we have a great new ward. so far i have been "callingless" for a few months, until last week when i had a bomb droped on me. so they sit me down and i know its calling !and im thinking nurshry i know its nurshry!! in my head im seeing poopie pants and goldfish crackers, bite wounds....stuff like that. NOPE NOT EVEN COSE!!!! here we go.....i am the new ward corister! you know the lady who leads the hymns in sacrament meeting?what are they thinking? the building is going to go up in flames! ivins ward is doomed! the woman with this calling is supposed to be the mother eart tipe. shes supposed to sing like an angel and wear eccentric fairy dresses. shes supposed to be gracefull and angelic. i am none of these. i am weird and short,im clumsy, not to mention i laugh like homer simpson. insted of saying no like wanted too,i accepted my calling and had a good ole laugh. my husband was shocked. hes going to be so embarrased every sunday.anna said i need beads to wear in my fingers? what the?! now i think i need an entire new wardrobe. i refuse to not look hot up there singing onward christian soldiers. the way i see it is....if i cant sing and i dont know the arm movements i can at least look cute right? yeah more like big retard. im going to look like a midget up there. im going to die! im going to start dancing and maby do the solja boy. if i can remember how that lady did it on ellen once. in jr high i was in choir and i freeking sucked. im like the kid who locks her knees and passes out on the bleachers. i sing in my car and its bad....reel bad.its funny, and its not. im just going to have to look on the bright side! i get to pick the hymns and put the numbers up. i'll convince beau that all my clothes are ugly and that i need to look "appropriate" for the job. goodbye emily hello mother earth.

haha. it's funny how we get called to some callings and are so surprised by them, huh.

i was ward chorister for a while. your arm gets tired (really tired), but it's not so bad. i found that most people didn't even look at me, except for the one time i kinda screwed up. not to make you nervous or anyhing. anyway, i think it's awesome that you get to do that calling!

You are freakin hilarious. I wish we had a chorister like you. All we have is one that is about a hundred years old and sings way off tune and really loud. Not to mention the dresses! Your ward will love it!

Anna said...

hahahahaha! love it! Im coming to watch! ;)
You will do just fine, really you will! :)
ps- Beads to wear around your wrist so that when you pick up your arms and they are swaying in the air there is a nice jingle sound. Its all the rage with the ol ladies who lead the music in my old home ward. ;)
LOVE U!

I think you are perfect for that calling! I really want to come watch. If you ever decide to break out the solja boy dance....PLEASE LET ME KNOW! It'd be worth the trip down. You're Hilarious!

Courtney and Andrew said...

I would love to get together with you! Seriously if you are ever in Poky let me know we would love to get together and play! Have fun with the songs and if there is anyway your hubbie can get pics I would pay money to see them. Is that illegal?

I really honestly cannot stop laughing. That was the greatest. I started out thinking Holy Crud Emily is going to be like the Relief Society president or somethin, but ward chorister....That my dear Emily is so much WORSE. Man, when do you start, because I want to come. Your description of the Mother Earth lady is classic, and I agree with Anna definitely need some beads and maybe a floral dress with a cardigan!! You will be looking hot. I don't have a clue how to lead music, so I always just write random things in cursive (just make sure you don't write swear words incase someone can read it). I love it! You will do awesome. I am banished to nursery, so maybe next this will be my calling.
