davidarchie we decided to go with Chinese food in Wisconsin. But here’s why: Kari couldn’t go to China and Taiwan so we’re doing it in honor of her. 😀

TIMEOUT FOR WOMEN

DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta gained worldwide recognition as a musician when he was just 16. In 2008 more than 30 million television viewers fell in love with his angelic voice and made him runner-up in Season 7 of the popular US competition “American Idol.” David credits his parents with shaping his musical style which he began to cultivate when he was very young. He won the children’s division of the Utah Talent Competition when he was just ten, and the Junior Vocal Champion award on Star Search 2 when he was 12. Since his time on American Idol, David has been a guest performer with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, topped billboard charts and released six studio albums including, “David Archuleta– Glad Christmas Tidings”, and “Begin”.

In 2012, David put his singing career on hiatus so he could serve as a full-time missionary in Santiago, Chile and described his experience of the mission as “a dream come true.” David returned from Chile in March 2014 and has since traveled to the Middle East to perform for U.S. troops, recorded the song “Glorious” for the recently released “Meet The Mormons” movie, and been busy writing songs for a new album that will be released in 2016.

    I see Donna is at the front of the line. Looks like she brought enough stuff to last a few days. Wonder how long she has been there? hahaha Good for her.

    I’m thinking we will be getting us some presents.

    Fun to watch David explain his reasons for seeing Kari got the Chinese food she missed out on. One thing about these short blogs of his, he doesn’t wander very far off subject. But always a little side trip through his thoughts

    23 now Abrra you had it right.

    Sigh yeah that’s true. I’m just frustrated that’s all. I mean, that’s why comment wise I chose to disappear for a while because I didn’t wanna upset people getting to see him again or finally have their chance and I was still waiting. Plus, Dayzee saying a few times about her ticket folder or whatever becoming paper thin just REALLY upset me and I didn’t want to get in a screaming match. I just wish I could find my gratitude again because ever since he’s been doing shows again, it’s been falling apart instead of making me happy like I should be. Guess focusing on school and everything else then was a distraction because the bitterness, hurt, anger and more were still there when all was set and done. If I saw him already I don’t think it wouldn’t even be so bad. But, since I haven’t…it’s difficult.

    Don’t worry guys I’ll be gone so you don’t have to tip toe around my feelings. I can handle it.

    Kristin, please consider this …. David does not control where he performs. I truly believe he would perform in every city, in every state in order to share his message of love, gratitude, and hope with everyone. Remember, he has a booking agency. It has to do with the logistics of booking venues, other things going on in his life that we are not aware of, and not stretching him so thin he gives out. Please don’t give up! Granted, I have seen him since his return (I live in Utah), but he will get there for you. He really will. I’m hoping for you, and Abrra, that it isn’t too far down the road. Hang in there! ♥

    Kristen, don’t ever give up on seeing David. November is still pretty well open and I keep hoping maybe he will fill up one of those dates in KC where I live. Also, the booking agency can only book where the places that want David to perform or has open dates that go along when he can be there, so maybe there is still a chance there will be more dates filled up. If I hadn’t seen David yet, I could feel your pain because that is the way I kind of felt when I couldn’t go to Tuachan again this year. Kind of down in the dumps, even tho I just seen him 3 times in March! 🙂 Every night would be fine with me! 🙂 LOL But like Abbra said, you have age on your side. God willing and the creek don’t rise, you will get to see David and his music career and his family flourish in the years to come. 🙂

    I don’t feel upset with you at all. 🙂 I seen it on FB yesterday and kept checking here and it wasn’t posted so I wanted everyone to know. The only thing I get upset about is when I try and post something and it doesn’t work because I’m not computer savvy! And I’m not trying to take over being a moderator or be “first” with any “goodie”. Just trying to help. 🙂

    Tawna, Jans, I really appreciated your kind, encouraging words. Before I say more, I just wanna say Jans, Happy Birthday and there is nothing wrong with trying to be positive. Also, Abrra thank you for sharing that pic. I was only eight when 9/11 happened so I don’t remember much but the fear and confusion was there. Also Jans, trying to post something and doesn’t work upsets me too haha you’d think I’d be tech savvy but I’m old fashioned when it comes to social media and stuff. I still don’t understand Twitter at times lol.

    I’m not gonna lie guys, I was gonna wait until tomorrow to reply but after seeing what you two said, I wanted to make an exception. I couldn’t sleep at all last night and frankly, it was the worst night I’ve had in a while. I even took my cross necklace off and threw it on my bed. I feel hopeless, I really do. You know, praying a lot, hoping, trying to be optimistic when it seemed beyond impossible, but I just feel it had finally weighed me down.

    But, you two are right. Honestly. I also saw last night (not sure if you guys did) that some fans were tweeting Kari asking about those dates, wondering if it was final, would there be more etc. I guess we’ll see what she says on that too. The last thing I would ever want is for David to stretch himself so much he wears himself out, as you mentioned Tawna. I just wish the east coast would get some chances just as much as other places have been. But yes you both were right regarding the booking agency. Jans, I’m glad you finally saw David so don’t feel bad about mentioning that, made me smile actually. Also Tawna, I really appreciated your encouragement because even though you live in Utah and have seen him, unlike some, you didn’t rub it in my face. You were very respectful, caring and considerate and I sincerely appreciated that. That’s been part of the problem too at times but I won’t get into that.

    I’ll be OK guys. I just have to take it a day at a time and I did feel fine this morning, just a contemplative mood and bummed I missed church because of losing sleep. Just have to find my patience and gratitude again I guess. Now to go do that puzzle Abrra posted, haven’t done those in a while. I used to do puzzles a lot as a kid was obsessed with them haha. The website JigZone also has fun puzzles to do.

    I’ll end this with a post from Beth Stern today involving kittens hehe. I feel like the latest foster kitten named Everett in terms of mood etc haha he’s been hissing and spitting poor Beth little tough guy. Then you see a short video of said kitten cuddling with a new friend and your heart melts at the toughness disappearing: kinda like David did with mine, or actually did hehe https://www.instagram.com/p/BKOiLn8gGFu/?taken-by=bethostern&hl=en Again I thank God for cat videos and posts about foster kittens, they help me cope when I have a bad day :).

    Kirsten, I’m glad you are feeling better. There are many on the East Coast that feel like you do – wanting David to perform there again. David’s music solo career is his business, and he needs to watch his bottom line. I’ve seen artists tweet fans that want them to perform in an area that they need a sponsor and to be booked in the area. It’s not that David doesn’t want to go to the East Coast, it is that he hasn’t had a booking that has worked out so far. Hopefully with the new music he can tour more places. I’m glad he will finally be getting to California and Indiana. He still hasn’t come to Iowa where I live. I’m just thankful for the magic of you-tube, but I know live would be even better.

    Good morning all!!!

    I wanted to say that you’re all welcomed to share, bring any info or videos you find out there, we greatly appreciate it all participation. We all have real life happening concurrently, sometimes I loose balance so every little helps, so thank you. I hope the powers that be are able to expand out more though I realize that things need to fall into place in order for it to happen. I don’t see any of these dates on Windish or David OS, so still wondering if this is just a preliminary list of dates and places.

    In the meantime here are some more goodies!

    Dear Kristin
    Thank you so much for just being who you are. That may sound trite, but it is sincerely meant. There can be huge moments of life where we each feel like the “odd man out”. Seems to come with the package. But you are showing up, you are learning, reaching out, daring, and yes, even hurting. I hope you won’t mind if I share a little metaphor.
    I don’t wear jewelry. Or very seldom. Just can’t do it. It distracts me too much, complete sensory overload. I simply have no experience of appreciation for it. For myself, that is. I love seeing it on others, and I love how they enjoy it and the many variations people come up with. I enjoy their enjoyment!
    We each have our own DA experience and history and reasons for being here from time to time. Your reasons are enough. The thing that pulls you to DA comes from within you and you recognize it in him. Trust yourself. You have what it takes. And your light will make a difference.
    (Besides, if you give up on life I will come and haunt you. ^_^)

    Kittens!!!!

    …………………..
    On another note: hubby is recovering well. My life is crazy. DA is DA: a miracle on two feet. Hope to get the time to listen to all the vids.

    “Potent” is the word. Five minutes or five hours. Time stops. Heart is the only thing that stays constantly, completely in thrall and alive, saying – “I’m talking to you here. Are you listening?”

    Bluesky, oh don’t worry about haunting haha not gonna happen. I am very touched by what you said and the metaphor was fine, don;t worry about it. It’s not just David that has been a pain, it’s been trying to find a job and wanting to be happy. You know? I don’t wanna settle. I wanna have and deserve better.

    I loved when you said this: “We each have our own DA experience and history and reasons for being here from time to time. Your reasons are enough. The thing that pulls you to DA comes from within you and you recognize it in him. Trust yourself. You have what it takes. And your light will make a difference.” I think that’s what I’m trying to do right now is be reminded of that. Why I’m still here when I could have left. Why I care so much, even though that’s just my nature altogether. When I saw a fan tweet the program last night, I basically blew a gasket. That was THE LAST THING I wanted to see. But, I feel a lot calmer today because I got out of the house and got to see my great aunt (it’s been a while) and…I realized something I really missed since finishing school.

    My mom, great aunt and I were at Walmart and there was this older woman behind us who had a lot of stuff and a smaller cart (kind of like the ones you see at Kohl’s). Anyway, as we were waiting, I gave Mom the little rod that separates our items from the person behind us…and I saw she was having a hard time, and quite a bit to take out of that small cart. So, without a second thought I asked if she needed help and she was talking about having so much stuff and laughing it off. But, put my sunglasses in my purse and I said let me give you a hand and started taking stuff out of the cart…and she was smiling, so impressed and surprised at me. She thanked me and I said it was no trouble and we talked about how nice the weather was since the hot temperatures were finally gone and she talked about her granddaughter hehe and she thanked me and even said God Bless You and I said it back. After we finished, she thanked me a second time and I said you are so welcome and smiled :). Then as we were leaving I wished her a good day and she said you too sweetheart. Wasn’t a big deal cos we didn’t have that much and it was so much in that small cart. I admit behind her was a family and they had quite a bit too and I found myself thinking ugh I want to help them too lol. Guess I have the same nature as David does. You wanna help everybody.

    I don’t know why it stayed with me…but, during my final two years of college, I started volunteering at a soup kitchen through the church I was attending. It was serving the homeless and helping prepare some of the food, serving and cleaning up after. It kept me humble…but my senior year got crazy and I had to give it up. Plus, sleep troubles were getting pretty bad.

    I don’t know what it is, but, when I write, or think about David or heck talk with friends including you guys…it makes me happy, but…it doesn’t feel the same. Like limited, you know what I mean? I feel joy absolutely. But, when helping other people, I feel so different. I think that’s what I’ve been missing. Looking for those opportunities to help other people instead of focusing on myself so much and what I don’t have. Also fresh air doesn’t hurt either.

    I asked God for perspective last night, and looks like I got it. I remember in the last thread when Abrra was talking about feeling shameful when David went to Louisiana. Not gonna lie, I felt a tiny pinch of jealousy. If I were in his position I would have gone down there in a heartbeat. He’s very fortunate.

    David just cares so much for others more than himself that’s what I’ve always admired about him. I never got over the recent pics of him at Shanghai Baby’s Home with those kids and baby Snow. You could just see from those pics alone the immense joy on his face being around those kids. If anything, I should be thankful he’s such an amazing role model for me and has been that light in a dark place. I don’t know where I’d be today, at 23, without him.

    …I just wish I could know that I somehow made a difference in his life, like he did for mine.

    Kirsten, I’m glad you have discovered what really is important in life – helping others. I will also give you some career advice. Many college graduates have to take a job outside of their field – especially a liberal arts major. Don’t sit at home waiting for that “perfect” job. Go out there and get a job. Many times that entry job leads to something better. It did in my case and my husband’s. My husband didn’t have a job in his college major field until he was in his fifties. I never did, but used my teaching degree teaching in Sunday School. I worked as a Purchasing Agent for a Big Ten University. I don’t think anyone I worked with went to school with that in mind.

    GrammyJ… so very true regarding the job situations. I have a neighbor who has 2 master degrees and 2 Phd degrees and she cannot get a job in either field of her education doing what she wants to do – teach college. So, in the job she has, which is in her field of study but not ‘high up’, she does nothing but complain and carry on about how she is ‘educated’ and should deserve better. She forgets that she is close to 60 and that has a huge bearing on hiring. She doesn’t forgets to think about the fact that she has a job and an income. That she isn’t sitting in the un-employment offices or standing in line at the Food & Care Coalition. Life is not a bed of roses, but boy we’d better be ready to stop and smell those roses when they show up, regardless of what color they are.

    Tawna and Grammyj, that advice you just gave me has been what my familyand the career center at my alma mater assured me of. I mean, yes I did major in English, but you know what? It’s what I love and hey, as long as I can write on the side and get work out there, get better with blogging and so on, I’ll be OK. I think that’s what keeps me going is having that. It’s just been frustrating when you apply for things when you do find something you might have an interest in doing and it doesn’t get a chance to thrive because they either find someone else or you never hear back. Plus, I am keeping my options open and looking at graduate school down the road. I also plan on attending a career fair later this month so I am doing what I can. That’s all I can do is keep looking and just go for what works and pray. I always forget other people are in the same boat as me (really easy to when I get frustrated). Plus, when my final semester of college was nearing, I talked with a career center lady who assured me even with my major, I could do ANYTHING. Technical writing, environmental lawyer etc cos good writers are needed quite a bit these days. Heck I even contacted where I did work study my senior year since the former director of religious and spiritual life departed for a new job at another college and a woman I became good friends with is the interim director right now. Plus, I LOVED working there. I heard back from her today and sent out another email so gonna wait to see what options will come about from that. Plus, I have another job I’m gonna apply for as a backup. Believe me Grammyj, I am NOT one to sit at home waiting. I have been applying, I have been retweaking my resume, I have been checking places like Publisher’s Weekly and Poets and Writers cos I get daily emails from them and they always have job openings listed. I have a LinkedIn account, I’m taking advantage of the resources at my alma mater cos you can have them up to five years. I have done interviews, you name it. Hope that wasn’t harsh I know you mean well but I don’t wait. I go looking and work my butt off. I don’t even care if it’s entry level, I just want to do SOMETHING.

    Tawna, regarding your neighbor, agreed with everything you said. Also interesting with the neighbor wanting to teach college. That’s something I DON’T want to do, or teach in general. Yet I plan to apply for a job that involves being a writing specialist for this education company. Looked interesting which is why I plan to apply.

    Also Grammyj, it’s Kristin haha but that’s OK I’ve gotten Kristen, Kirsten and even Christian!! Also an older woman at my church keeps calling me Kristine -__- I just got tired of correcting people.

    Well guys, guess those dates we found the other day have been confirmed. If you got the numerous tweets from David not too long ago, TA-DA. Trying hard not to run my mouth off because I…I don’t know how to really feel except annoyed, mad and upset. But…I guess it’s just more defeat at this point. I did say in response to one of the tweets his booking agency needs to work on getting to the east coast. I’m also bummed, too, that Indy COULD HAVE worked out cos I have a friend from college who’s from Ohio and would have loved to see him. The problem is Nov 28th is after Thanksgiving Break so she will need to be back on campus and (I just texted her) I would feel horrible going home with her for break just for that when she should be spending time with her family. That’s just the way my mind works.

    That really would have been perfect (tries not to cry). Anyway, sniff I got a story I’m submitting for an anthology to wrap up cos the deadline’s today.

    Thanks Kristin for the links! Hoping for dates to be added for all. These all say venues to be announced, I thought that was interesting. And there will be VIP, yay!

    You’re welcome dja and I hope so. Defeat is a terrible feeling, like a punch in the gut over and over again. I found that strange that better mean something. Oh great it gets worse with the VIP mention. UGH!!!!!

    There are some happy David fans in California, Las Vegas and Indianapolis as David is going to these places besides the usual Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. That’s progress. I’m hoping that means that he will eventually expand to the East Coast. I know you aren’t the only disappointed fan, Kristin. I know it is probably a business decision as David, I believe, wants to tour everywhere.

    Grammy, I couldn’t have said it better. I’ve traveled to Utah and Arizona to see him, financially tough but I cut corners where ever I could to make it possible. And for birthdays, mothers days, christmas, grandmothers day, I ask for David concert funds :)))) The family knows.

    Now this is super cool and obviously a bit strange for David.

    Instagram message: @davidarchie I’m just sitting at my gate in LAX waiting for my flight to take off and then think “…Why can I hear myself? Is someone messing with me?” It’s funny when everyone you’re around is listening to you and they don’t know it’s you. Probably don’t even notice nor care to be honest but It’s still kinda funny. I wish I could do that in real life–just sing in the airport all I want out loud and know one knows or cares. 🎤 #lax #airport #crush #minivlogger

    Arghhhhh!!!

    Looks like no Christmas Concert for me either this year.
    I was really looking forward to it. I’m on the East Coast too, Kristin and thought for sure David would be back this way by Christmas. Hopefully when he tours for his next album he will book some dates on the East Coast.

    Jans, Happy Belated Birthday! ❤
    Bluesky, Glad your husband is recovering well. ❤

    Yeah I think so Grammyj. I feel a little better now. That post of him at LAX made me finally crack a smile. Must have saw my tweets too. I just hope he saw the shared sentiments also. I told him how the East Coast wants to see him too and I didn’t know what else to say cos I didn’t wanna lash out at him. I did say I was thrilled but that I’d be more thrilled if others would get a chance too. Thata just who I am with anything. I also admitted things are the way they are but I feel pretty defeated. Wished him congrats and just pray to God SOMETHING comes out of nowhere and that the east coast doesn’t get shut out. Next year then? That’s all I said to him.

    And Grammyj I did see other people sharing similar sentiments. I’m just glad the tweet was posted when I was starting to finally calm down. Last thing I ever want to do is hurt David. Plus, I have felt awful at times for giving him such a hard time cos in letters to him I mentioned that too.

    Sigh this would be a great time for God to prove me wrong, and David too.

    On another note, my short story has been submitted. Crossing fingers on that!!

    Thank you Bluesky, Bebereader, Kristin and anyone else that I might have missed for the birthday wishes! I had a great day, as I try and have a great day every day! 🙂 But birthday’s are always more special. The big celebrations come every 5 yrs now that I am old! lol 🙂

    I just knew that something had been announced when I seen how many comments were posted! 🙂 So happy to see that the rumors are true and I will try my best to go to the one in Vegas. Hope they tell us where the concert will be real soon. Dayzee are you going to the one in Vegas? Maybe we can get together again. ♥ If not, I will make other plans. Also, with Nov. pretty emty yet, he may be adding more midwest and eastward! 🙂 Fingers crossed for some closer ones!

    Dja, same here with the money thing! That’s what I asked for my birthday, 🙂

    Bluesky, glad that hubby is doing much better. ♥ I can’t wear the big dangly kind of jewelry. It overwhelms me. But I do like it, just not the big stuff. 🙂

    So cute of David in the airport. 🙂

    Kristen sorry to hear that you have had the punch in the gut defeat over David’s concert dates. Just keep being patient, as David says. I know that sounds hard since it has been so long for him to get started again. But patience is virtue they always say. And at your age, I hope this will be the only thing in your life that makes you defeated because the older you get sometimes life sends a lot of those punch in the gut defeats. Really hard things that you can not do anything about…just going on the best you can. I am not trying to preach at all but try to prepare you for real life as it is. Just an old grandma that has been through a lot in my life. I say this in love, not to be critical. You are are a sweet, young girl and l wish you the best! Good luck on your short story you submitted. ♥

    Jans, first off let me say I hope I get the pleasure to meet you in person one day because you are nothing but an absolute sweetheart!! You weren’t being critical or preachy at all!! I really appreciated your words of wisdom. Believe me, I have had my share of punch in the gut defeats and I too have been through a lot. Plus, with this I have been able to bounce back, but this is honestly the worst that it’s been. Why I don’t know probably because of the wait and how much I want this dream to happen. I also wanted to make it a thank you gift for friends because of how they’ve been so supportive all these years and so understanding of how much he means to me. Also, I don’t mind older folks giving me advice I always seem to get along, and identify with, them more than people my own age. It’s a maturity thing, really. That’s kinda why college was rough because it was mostly people my age…and I didn’t seem to fit well when there were immature jokes and stuff. thus rolling my eyes haha. But, it was also wonderful because I found people and classmates just like me. They are now some of my closest friends and I miss them terribly!!

    I just pray after this blow I can bounce back somehow because it’s much difficult this time around.

    Also, I wanted to share something that made me choke up not too long ago. I was talking with Patty-Ann on Twitter about how I was feeling…and Nathan Pacheco replied to one of my responses to David today. I was so surprised. Wanna share what he said to me:

    you never know! Hopefully it will be added!

    I wanted to start crying when I read that not just because of the encouragement. But that he took the time to reach out like that, that was so sweet of him. I thanked him for the encouragement and I needed that today and he replied again with a smiley face hehe. I’m also now seeing he had responded to a few other fans too and and encouraged another one not to give up either. So glad David introduced us to this awesome guy!!

    I do, though, honestly wish David would reach out like that once in a while. Would mean a lot to some fans, but we understand he’s busy and stuff. Just wouldn’t hurt now and again. Anyway, felt like sharing that!

    Oh my gosh! Nathan is SUCH a sweetheart. Can’t tell you how happy I am that that particular dream of mine came true. And….that you ALL get to enjoy it with me.

    I have plans to go to Provo. But o honestly can’t remember when the tickets go on sale. Dayzee, if you are going to Layton and will forgive me for my goof-ups from last time, I would be happy to go with you. I am hoping I will be in town for these.

    Kristin, I know it is a big budget item, but if you ever want/can come out this way, there is always room.

    DA is a quiet fellow. Maybe hanging around NP will be good for him.

    Can I just say that it cracks me up that they have to make NP half his normal size in order for him and DA to be the same height. (I know, I know, DA is billed as the star and NP is in the background. Still funny!)

    Oh Bluesky you’re such a sweetheart thank you!! Maybe not this time around but once I find a job and get some money coming in it might be easier. But I REALLY appreciate and feel very touched by the thought. Maybe Grammyj might be able to go with you? Or Bebe? If that happened this year that would make me happier than anything. Yes Nathan is a sweetheart!! I agree on your other points haha and yes David is a quiet fellow. Really? Didn’t notice that!!

    Dang! I have been so involved with family, etc. that I totally missed NPs concert this weekend. Two sold out shows Friday and Saturday! Right here!

    Maybe I can just go and sit by the door and listen from outside?! Ha, ha! As if!

    By the way, Abrra, there is a full sized pic of DA and NP on NPs FB page. If you want more of the full effect. Just say in’. ^_^

    Jan, I certainly intend to go to Vegas. Big surprise! It would be great if we could work that out. I will reserve the available rooms at my son’s home and hope you can find affordable airfare.

    Bluesky, Layton will be great. I see there are 2 nights.

    Painted my fence over the weekend. That fence looked really big when I had a paintbrush in my hand. Took me a four day weekend to get it done. It’s amazing how easy these tasks are when you have David singing in your ear. The fifth day I went out to see if I could find any spots missing paint, just to keep the music going. Starting in now sewing Halloween costumes for my grandkids and their kids. More great time to spend with David.

    Oh Kristin, thanks for the kind words. Hope to meet you some day too! And Nathan responding to you is awesome! David used to be more outgoing and I think he will eventually get back to that. He sent my granddaughter a birthday card once by my request at a VIP. He really is awesome and yes I noticed….. 🙂 hehe

    Thanks Dayzee, that will be awesome. Your son is going to start charging me rent… 🙂 lol I will wait a few weeks to see if any more concerts are added closer to me before I start looking for cheap seats! Well, that depends on when the tickets go on sale. Don’t want to miss out altogether. And VIP… WOW!!!!!

    That voice sure is talented to help us get all kind of things done! 🙂

    Bluesky…sit by the door and listen… 🙂 lol

    I listen to these “old” songs and am so happy to. He has made the old ones new. You’d think they were completely new the way he changes things up and embellishes. They are more beautiful than ever. We would be so surprised and content if he made a new recording of them. Comparing them to the first versions would be a delight.
