Women want men of action.

Well, today was my first day at Grannette's house, and it was so much fun! She let me sleep in, then while she took care of some things at the office I watched "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" and ate some almonds.

Around three I went over to Kim's house and she cut my hair. (It's really short, but I like it!) Then Grandma and I went to Logan and got dinner and some groceries, and we have been watching Lifetime since about 7:30.

I love her. :)

I think we're going into Ogden to go shopping on Saturday, which should be a good deal of fun. I head home Sunday, so I've gotta go try to pick up some CDs or an audiovox for the drive.

In other news, Crystal and I are for sure going to Portland! I'm way excited!

Herp derp.

Let me begin this post by saying: holy crap, I'm tired.

This break has been nice, but I'm pretty ready for it to be over. Sometimes I think dealing with people you're related to is more difficult than dealing with people who grade you.

Today, Zoe, Mom, Kristina, Grannette, and Marcus (my four-year-old cousin) and I all went to lunch. It was super fun -- Marcus is such a doll, and I love the fact that he's willing to talk to anybody about anything. After lunch, Marcus and Grandma came with Zoe, Mom and me to run some errands, one of which was stopping by Barnes and Noble so Mom could get a journal. I ended up getting a book of illustrations of seashells which is mostly written in French.

(Minor tangent: Looking at that book today, I realized that I like to collect collections. Collections of images, collections of books [like, books in a series], collections of colors. Most people stick to a specific category, like stamps or autographs or coins. Apparently, my need to gather transcends category.)

When I got home, I was dead tired, having only slept about four hours. The minute I sat down, I passed out. However, sleep only lasted a few minutes. All of a sudden, I was jerked awake by this sort of panic. The only way I can describe it is: like a cat jumps onto your stomach unexpectedly. I fell asleep again, but it happened a second time, so I calmed myself with seashell pictures. Mom was really worried this panic was stemming from that book I'm reading, House of Leaves, because it's kind of creepy and also because many of the characters in the book start to develop either night terrors or an inability to sleep. I don't think that's what it is, but I would like to know what's going on.

Earlier in the day Marcus had invited me over to play Mario Kart, so at 8 PM I headed over to Bryan and Kristina's. We raced for an entire hour -- it was a blast! I'm not used to having kids want to hang out with me. I'm not exactly the most childlike (see: "fun") Davenport. But Marcus and I now have a standing appointment for Wednesday nights, where we will race or play tennis or go to the park. I can't wait for that to get started.

Right now I am at work. At the beginning of my shift I was informed that we had no running water (thanks, City of St. George! your winter planning is incredible!). Furthermore, I have been called by about a bajillion Jehovah's Witnesses looking to book rooms for their Once-in-a-Blue-Moon conference situation. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't each have a MILLION questions about the hotel. ("What is served in your continental breakfast? What is the thread count in the sheets? Who manufactured the carpet in the lobby?")

Tomorrow I leave for Newton with Grannette, and I don't come home until Sunday, and I am SO EXCITED TO GET A REAL VACATION! One where I am not sick and don't have to work and can just relax before school gets started.

In other news: Alec has convinced me to start a blog for my doodle-artwork-stuff. I don't know when it will be operational, but you can count on a link once it is.

Daft Punk is playing at my house.

2010 was a pretty crappy year -- containing, as it did, two family deaths, 7 months of a parasitic relationship, three solid months of illness, a complete loss-of-self, weight gain, mediocre grades, self-doubt, and jealousy.

2011, however, is the year of Hannah.

I feel like I've finally got my bearings again. I'm gonna kick butt and take names. I'm going to take crazy good care of myself (because I deserve it!) and get A's in all of my classes and prepare for my mission and exercise and quit eating wheat products and sing and write and maybe even go on a date.

And Alex and I are going to dominate at KCA!

Anyway, I think that's all the enthusiasm this post needs, so I will continue by saying "I miss Spencer like CRAZY." It's really freaky to go from being one half of a duo to just being myself. It makes me hope I never have to get divorced.

Also, I think Crystal and I will be heading to Portland at the end of the month. Huzzah!
