I made it through the visitation and funeral, as well as the rest of Thanksgiving Break. I just felt weird most of the time. I'm so glad my family was there. Being with them made everything seem ok. Especially Tori. We got close through this situation, I think. Granny is by herself now. My sister, Tori, and Skylar are going to move into the house next door to her so they can take care of her and everything. My Grandaddy hasn't written a will, so now everything with that is all messed up because so-and-so wants this, but whatsherface also wants it too. I don't want anything of his. Just little things that meant something to me, but not a car or anything. It's not that big of a deal. :/
We celebrated Thanksgiving at our house this year because it would've been weird to have it at Granny and Grandaddy's house. It was a lot of fun. I love Davis and Allison so very much. I'm pretty sure we're going to have Christmas here too.
I also got involved with a jerk. Glad that's over with.
I've been SO tired. So so so tired. And it's because I've had to stay up until 2 or 3 every morning trying to get my homework done. All I think about these days is sleeping. I've been doing homework-type things since break has started, but now that Christmas is here... forget it. I don't care if I've finished it or not. I'm not doing anything else.
We just read Heart of Darkness in English. It was ridiculous. We were all like "..." through the whole thing. Ms. Wright really is an awful teacher. We have to read part of The Awakening over break. I actually read it. No help from Spark Notes. And I enjoyed it. I think she purposefully chose a girly book this time around. We needed it.
So, this is how break has gone so far...
Saturday: Christmas piano recital (bleh), new cell phone (LG... still feeling iffy about it; I miss my razr), shopping, and my mom getting sick so we had to come home early
Sunday: skipped church because mom had been up all night throwing up, Church Christmas party (we played dirty Santa and I got the exact penguin salt and pepper shakers that I saw at Target that I wanted), visited Sarah at her new job at Smoothie King
Monday: mom got sick again and had to miss work
Tuesday: I tossed and turned that night and woke up feeling weird... I thought it was my turn to start throwing up. I got out of bed and thought I would put up my hair just in case I did start all of that mess. When I finally got my hair up, I was really dizzy and I stumbled back a little bit and landed on my bed--my heart was racing, I couldn't breathe, and I broke out in a cold sweat. I thought I was having a heart attack or something. So, I ate some crackers and drank some sprite and that was about it for the whole day. I just laid on the couch and felt like crap the whole day. I also took a two hour nap and then I went to bed pretty early that night too. I don't know what was wrong with me.
Christmas Eve was good. I woke up and watched Miracle on 34th Street. Then I got dressed and watched the Duggar marathon on TLC. I love that family. :) Tori, Marcy, and Skylar came over at 6:00 and we had dinner and opened presents and then we celebrated Skylar's birthday (Christmas baby... bleh.) And now I'm here.
Some of my favorite things that I got are Run-DMC shirt and Beastie Boys shirt (matching with Sarah!), Wedding Dash (very fun game!), a beautiful picture made by Katie, Victoria Secret's perfume (from Mrs. Davis, my 3rd grade teacher), Johnny Cash CD, Michael Phelps book, a pop-up book about how to find flower faeries (it's so pretty!!), and a limited edition picture of A Hard Day's Night with actual film from the movie in it. So cool!
I mentioned Mrs. Davis a bit ago. I like being at the elementary school again. I love those kids. I've made a special little friend named Hellen. She's a sweet little Asian girl. I was walking in the hall with her the other day and she was like "Where are you going?" And I said "I have to go back to school." And I made a sad face. And she said "Nooooo." And I said "I know. Believe me. I'd rather be here with you than down there." And she said "When you go to college next year, can you still come to see us here?" And I said "I'll see what I can do." I would just love that. To be able to chill with kids for awhile. I also got to see a lot of my kindergarteners the last week because I was helping Mrs. Davis decorate in the cafeteria. Love them. :)
Well, I should've gone to bed like... hours ago. I was going to wash my hair and all that, but that didn't happen.
Thank you to those for showing concern in my time of need. I really appreciate it. I hope you're all doing well this holiday season. I read what you guys are saying, I just never get to comment all the time. Have a very merry Christmas! :)
