It has been a week since Mexico. It’s been an okay week. We got home at 1 in the morning on Sunday. I just unpacked and got ready for school the next day. Monday, I got to school, handed out the rest of my Christmas presents to everyone. It was really good to be back at school and it turned out the things I had gotten from my teachers had put me ahead of the class. I had to drive myself to school on Tuesday and Wednesday because dad was in Hong Kong. Those two days were freezing, not good days to have to walk from mom’s work to school.
Turned out on Thursday and Friday it was too cold for school. We had two days off which was good, but bad because we’re really close to finals now. So, on Thursday I helped mom and Eddie put away the Christmas decorations and then Hannah picked me up to go to her house. We went snowmobiling, it was really cold out, but we bundled up really well. We came in after about an hour and a half. We played wii and talked. We had heard that we probably won’t have school on Friday. So, Hannah asked if I could stay over, I thought it would be fun. So, I called mom to ask her and to bring me my stuff. She agreed. We stayed up til 1 talking to people on facebook and talking to each other.
I set an alarm for 5am. We prayed before we fell asleep to not have school in the morning. We fell asleep and right at 5 Kayla texted me saying we had no school! I told Hannah and we slept in until 9am 😊 we had breakfast, I played wii and they took me home.
Then me, Eddie and dad came to the cabin last night. Dad and I stayed up until 3am talking about mom’s side of the family and friends of mine and a few other things. Oh, and we haven’t seen one of the cats since Sunday night. So, dad made some fliers that we’ll have to put up.
So, I guess that’s it for now. I could write more, but it’s not that important. So, I’ll be done.

Present day me: Wow, to be 16 again, living in a freezing climate where school is cancelled and I can just hang out with my friends.

Today was the last day of school before Christmas break! Pretty normal day. Got lots of cookies and candy from people and some pretty awesome presents! 😊
Andrea had a Christmas party also. It was a lot of fun! I took pictures and a video. I drove Tabitha to and from there. We had fun singing on the way back. We ate mini wieners there, watched Elf and just hung out. Devin and I shared a piece of Patrick’s birthday cake. Hehe. And yeah. I think a bunch of people can come to my party on Saturday which I am so excited for!! And I am so tired now so ttyl!

Present day me: I remember this was a fun time. Everyone was dressed up in their nice dresses and suits. Great way to celebrate Christmas with friends.

Sick yesterday only went to school three days this week!
So, after school today I had a girls night out with Hannah! I drove to her house, picked her up and we ate dinner at Coldstone! Then got drinks at Panera. We visited the mall for a bit and then went to the school for the improv show. It was so funny! Then I drove her and I back home. We uploaded pictures and she left. I had an awesome night! She’s my first friend that I’ve driven with! Whoo!! Yeah, so I had a lot of fun tonight. We jammed out to the radio.
I’m going to go to bed. I have band practice tomorrow. Yawn. Oh! And St. nick comes tonight!
I LOVE DRIVING!

Present day me: This was a fun time with Hannah. We went to the mall and bought more candy to get hyper on. Oh, those were the times….before responsibilities and you could just have a great night eating candy with your friends and singing loud to the radio.

I got my temps today!!!! So now I can drive!! 😊😊 I don’t feel that excited just happy. It will be really weird to drive around. Hopefully dad will have someone come look at our pontoon boat tomorrow and so then I can drive a little up there.
Oh! And Tabitha found out “Michael’s” real name. He has a myspace, but I’m pretty sure he has a girlfriend. I can’t be lucky enough to like a guy and have them be single. Anywho, yeah, I hope I’ll be able to drive a little bit tomorrow. G’night for now.

Present day me: The end of my pre-driving days. Bittersweet.
