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.

I GOT MY LICENSE!!!!

I passed my test this morning! Last night I stayed at Hannah’s with Tabitha. It was a ton of fun! We talked a lot, watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 and had Ice cream and hot chocolate. We even prayed together. We sang Hannah Montana songs and just were really hyper. I couldn’t pick up Tabitha today to take her somewhere because I’m not on the car insurance yet. Grr! But I got to drive by myself from dad’s office to home and from the car fixer to his office. And I picked up Meryl from church. I’m SO happy I passed!!! Now I just need a job and I can do whatever I want!

G’night!

Present day me: This was a lovely day! Great memory when I passed the driving test and was able to drive alone finally!

March 11, 2007

Today was the Sunday I was supposed to go to the nursery at church, but there were already people signed up for it. So I just went to Sunday School. Then we got home and ate lunch. Then me, Meryl and mom went to the humane society for 2 hours! We hung out with all the kitties and in the big cat room a lot of them were sick or one of them was breathing kind of weird. So, that was kind of sad. But after that we got home and Eddie, Meryl and I went for a BIKE RIDE!!! It felt awesome!!!

Present day me: This was my 8th grade year, and I was also working towards becoming confirmed with other kids my age at the time. So, the requirements for confirmation were many! One of them was volunteering within the church for a set number of hours. I had experience working in the nursery with my mom so I tried to do that as my hours when I could. Also, bike rides on a nice day at that age are so precious and nostalgic.
