Friday

Night before my party! So excited! This past Christmas was kind of lame. Christmas Eve mom and dad had stuff to do so us three cleaned the house and did laundry. That night we went to church. LAME and BORING! Christmas day we opened presents from Santa and then came up to the lake. And I’ve been working on my friends’ Christmas presents since we got up here. I still have one more to do, but she’s not coming tomorrow so I’m going to do it later. Meryl and I went to the grocery store to get food for tomorrow. Yep, that was my day. And I have a cold, yay! Right before we got to Mexico. Grr!

Well, I’m going to read New Moon and sleep.

G’night!

Present day me: I wanted to include this entry because it was a memory of one of our Christmases. I bet my parents had to buy the gifts from Santa on Christmas eve, that’s why they were busy and we had to do chores. Sheesh.

At home

Just got done watching the bucket list with mom and Meryl. It was a good movie. So last night I had Rhonda, Hannah and Tabitha sleep over at the cabin. I’m pretty sure it was one of the best sleepovers we’ve had like ever! And it was a ton of fun! So, everyone got dropped off here between 3 & 4. We drove up, unpacked and went to get the mail. Rhonda had called Aaron’s house on the car ride up and he was at work. So, we knew he wasn’t home. But we walked down the street and took pictures. Pretty much all we did last night was go for walks and talk. We stayed up til 3am and slept in the loft. Aaron didn’t show up at all and I didn’t have any feelings like he should be there. I think it was almost better without him there. Because it was more so us four could hang out together. So, we also had a campfire.

So, this morning we woke up at 10 and Tabitha left at 11. So, us three walked down to the end of the driveway and we see legs from under one of Aaron’s cars. He looks at us and Rhonda waves and smiles really big. We walk down the hill, and he comes down on his atv. Just like the first time. We talked to him for like 20 minutes then had to leave. Yeah, it was one of the best sleepovers I’ve ever had!!

Present day me: This is a bittersweet entry to revisit as well as cathartic. I’m grateful for these good memories.

Sunday

Well let me write all about this past weekend.

Thursday night the ktown clan came up. Kind of late so they pretty much just got here, and we went to sleep. Then on Friday we all woke up around 8:30-9ish. Us girls played some volleyball, but there was still dew all over the grass, so it was kind of cold and wet. So, we decided to play apples to apples and listen to music. So, I plugged in my ipod speakers and let Gayle manage the music. We then went for a walk into town. Their mom gave Linda $30 because we had to get more than just candy for all the kids. On our walk there Bob had his big white car and almost ran us over, we didn’t know who he was, so we were kind of freaking out. They all started laughing as they passed.

So, we’re walking on the bridge and Gayle wants to get a picture of her and Linda. So, Linda pulls out her camera from the case and the $20 flys out. It went straight into the river, and I stepped on the ten. Gayle went crazy. She called her dad with my phone and told him. I guess he laughed. But anyway, I just got a packet of starbursts and everyone at them all. Gayle ate all of the strawberry banana ones. They were the best kind. So, once we got back we went on the pontoon. Went swimming and tanned a little bit. It was good. Then us four girls paddle boarded back. Then we just pretty much chilled for the rest of the day.

Saturday: summer solstice. We get up and use girls want to go out somewhere like see a movie, go bowling or do whatever. So, we managed to get the moms to take us out for ice cream. I get a chocolate chip cookie dough cone. Before getting ice cream the moms had to stop at the grocery store to pick up some liquor. As we were walking past all the checkouts all the baggers were looking at us. They happened to be all boys. 😊 after visiting town, we just came back and rode the atvs a bunch. And played some board games.

Best part!

So having it be summer solstice dad had a bonfire and Bob shot off fireworks. Earlier in the evening me and Gayle went for a walk down past Tori’s house. And we saw Aaron’s atv there. So, Gayle and me were talking about ways to spy on Tori and Aaron. It was really funny. Back to the bonfire. We had to get two chairs from down by the lake. Me, Meryl and Gayle went down there. Once we got back up, we saw Austin standing by the bonfire. Gayle told him he should go get Aaron and just as we were talking about that we hear Aaron’s atv coming back from Tori’s. But he showed up. And we decided to play sardines. I hid first but on my way to a hiding spot I tripped on a big fricken stump and landed on my chin. It hurt so bad. I ran behind a tree and decided to run across the yard to get away from them, but Eddie got me and I fell to the ground. Then we decided to go inside and we played apples to apples. 10 people total! It was fun! I got to just sit kind of diagonal from Aaron. I won stunning from him. 😊 haha. Then we just talked and the guys flicked bottle caps at each other. It as kind of cool. Austin, Jake and Eddie were on the side with the sliding doors and Aaron, and I were on the other side. Then we started talking again, I showed Aaron my temps. And we talked about driving a little bit. Then we wanted to play a game outside. But we only made it to the deck. And talked some more. Then came back inside, talked more. I asked Aaron what he did today, and he said he went to work, then a junkyard with his dad and he took a nap. He didn’t say anything about going over to Tori’s. But he did mention her. I said I should meet her. He said yeah, that’d be fun. Then they started talking about puppies. Aaron and Austin have a black lab and a husky, and they had puppies. Six weeks old, so at 12:30am we went over to their house and each of us got to hold a puppy. They were just opening their eyes. SO CUTE! So, then we came back here and went to bed. I got up and texted some people, “Guess who I hung out with last night!”

Present day me: This was one of the fun times I had with Gayle and Linda. We were a bit older, and we had more of the same interests. It was nice to have a smooth time with her. I remember hanging with Aaron after knowing he had a girlfriend, who lived just down the street. It was a little weird to me, but I figured we were neighbors, he could hang with Eddie if he wanted to as well. I don’t know what he was telling Tori…. It was probably easy for him to come and hang out at my house after being at Tori’s because she couldn’t see my house from hers. He could just pop over, and she thought he was going home.

Saturday

Well, a month ago today we were in Mexico!! Wow, time as flown by. But in a week, we’ll be in California! Yay!! This year has gone by fast so far. And there’s good things happening! Except on Thursday night when mom and dad got into a fight and mom said she wanted to just go down to see Sylvia. But instead, she just went out with Cathy. Soo yeah, I guess it’s all good now. And this whole past week we’ve been talking about putting Dil, our senior cat, down. Mom and dad both said we should put him down before we go to California. Because nobody is going to be here to watch or clean up his pee. Soooo, I hope this next week goes fast! I think dad has to take him in anyway. So, it’s hopefully not going to be that bad. So, I’ll just keep watching Charmed season 4 at the cabin.

Present day me: What a peak into my life as a 14-year-old. I remember our cat being so old and frail. I still miss him! This is interesting to read later in life.

March 4, 2007

Last night we went to the cabin, ate dinner and then came back home at 10 o’clock because the heat went out up there. This morning we didn’t go to church. I don’t think mom really wanted to. So, I just stayed home all day and cleaned, made oatmeal cookies and got a new AIM screen name. Yep. So, I’ve been online most of the night talking to people. Me and Delia had a pretty interesting convo. I guess that’s about it for today. We have a late basketball game tomorrow at our school. I’m not that nervous about it, there is only one more game left after that and basketball will be OVER!!! Yay!! But I had fun and I actually know how to play too. Can’t wait to show Gayle and Linda my mad bball skillz! Haha!

Oh yeah. I have decided NOT to let Gayle get to me anymore. And I will not “egg” her on. I will be the older person and not get her mad. I don’t care what she does. I don’t care what she gets. If she’s boasting or rubbing something in my face, I’ll just ignore her. Who cares?? It’s not like I HAVE TO be friends with her. But I guess let’s just see how the next couple of weeks go by. If by the time we go on this trip together, I’m not liking her, then I’m going to have Tabitha come with. Okay, that’s about it. Gnight<3

Present day me: I remember the rivalry between Gayle and I. She was only two years younger than me, but we were both the oldest in our respective families. I am grateful I only had to be around her for so long. As I grew up and got a job later during high school, we never spent time together. But when I was only 14 and had a life of random friends and she was one I could instant message with and start a little drama. I admit, at the time I enjoyed it, but I also knew that it was a game that shouldn’t be played. So, this part of my entry was pointing that out I think.
