Grief in my Home

For a few weeks, our dog Perky has been very very sick. And this evening after supper, things got bad. She started choking and gagging for breath. I knew what was coming so I ran outside to keep from witnessing it. I was crying of course, but when I walked around the house and saw my dad bringing the wheelbarrow around...I let it all out. She died. At 5:31.

For all those years of love, laughter, and trouble, I loved you doggie. Thank you for all those years. You will always be a puppy. You will always be smiling, barking, and howling at us.

R.I.P. Perky.

Post....what number am I on?

Jump For Joy
Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts. I've just been busy, lazy and all that.

The days are getting colder. Alas! I am spending each morning curled up in my covers, refusing to budge! I feel comfy, cozy, and all snuggled. But then something has to come along and drag me out. Such as my mom, dad, a sibling, a pet(yes you heard me correctly) or school. My sis(15) is always up earlier than me because she has more schoolwork than me, and I pity her since she is in the middle of Biology right now. Luckily she wriggled her way out of the dissecting part, she is going to instead watch a video or something. I plan to do that once I'm in 10th grade(which is like, years from now!), see I used to be interested in the Medical profession but the sight of blood and another person's...erm....ugh...well you know. It sickens me. And no way am I going to start by cutting up a dead frog. Sick

Well back to business ok? Ok. So did I mention I have progressed in guitar? Yes indeed! I am getting better at strumming chords aaand writing notes in by myself. Last week at lessons I played "Silent Night" on my teacher's guitar really good. He had my mom come and listen, and then told her I was ready for a new guitar. See I've had my old one don't know! I've outgrown it! I used to be comfortable playing it but I agree with my teacher. Tis' time for a new one.

During the past duration of these days, our oven also decided to fizz out on us. See two weeks ago we were trying to cook pizza in the oven and everytime the the timer went off, the pizzas were still cold. So after several attempts we gave up and had to use the microwave. Since then my family has had to get creative with meal plans. We have had spaghetti but something was missing. No garlic bread! It just wasn't the same. And I am not seriously fond of crockpot meals, which my mom has been fixing for supper lately. So I'm praying our oven gets fixed and soon! I am suffering from a garlic bread, oven-baked pizza, chicken nugget, chicken patty, and chocolate cake withdrawl. This girl loves that stuff!

Let's see I've talked alot haven't I? I'm trying to figure out what to say about school. When I saw what was for Math this week, I freaked out. But it turned out to be easy so again I made a fool of fine. Just talking about clouds and the atmosphere, which is sometimes, honestly, too hard to focus on when you've got something else on mind. And I know my clouds! Nimbus, stratus, cirrus, I missing any? History is finishing up on the Revolutionary War which I also am smart of, thanks to a certain kids show named Liberty's Kids. Bible is talking about apologists and all that stuff.

I believe I have an obsession with a series of games called Sims 3. Upon the whereabouts of seeing these games continually in Super Wal-Mart, I have began to grow curious of what they were like. It turns out the other ones are expansion pacts like the newest one, Pets. I have continually told my mom I want one of those games. Another thing to add to my Christmas list.

And did I mention my Christmas list is growing? Yes quite so! But I shan't tell you it yet, that post, my dear, is saved for another day.

Let's see...I think I've covered everything. Oh wait, there is one more thing! A song! I cannot leave you without a song! And today's selection is "Part of your World" from The Little Mermaid!

Stay true!

What Disney Movies Taught Me

That you can fall in love with someone regardless of how they look

To be true to your heart.

That love can happen between any two people.

That those we have lost will always be with us.

That even our wildest dreams can come true.

That we must learn to accept differences and love each other for them

That some of the most beautiful people we will ever know, are beautiful for who they are and not what they look like.

That we are all meant for something great.

That you may find the one you are meant for in the strangest places.

Have a great day!

Posting....without a title

I fear my mind is running dry on titles. That is the best(or should I say, worst) I could come up with.

I've been gone almost all day, well it's the afternoon, so I've been gone all morning. Why? I had a doctor's appointment. I do not like doctor appointments. Well actually it was for me and my little sis. I got a clear bill of health. And one thing I don't like about doctor appointments...the finger prick. Blood. My own innocent blood. Oh the humanity! Nevermind. Anyways, some tuffs of the cotton was sticking out from up and down the band-aid, which I couldn't resist this oppurtunity to make a joke. I wiggled that finger in front of my mom and sister and said "Hello I'm the Professor". And my mom asked me what I was doing. I just pointed out to her how the cotton looked like tuffs of wild white hair from between the band-aid, like a professor.

Onto majorness...I also had to get a shot while there. Spare this poor girl a shot people! I already got a flu one. Sheesh. Anyways, I wasn't even looking before they did it. The room I got in was painted all Lion King, which made me feel comfortable, so I just looked at the wall while my arm waited. And it stung! My mouth just gaped open. I didn't scream or anything. I just got shocked. I think I can survive shots now.

Of course I got to do some reading in the waiting room, did I fail to mention that? See I'm on a week-from-tomorrow deadline to get "The Blue Enchantress" finished, because it's due then. I'm already in the middle of the seventeenth chapter so only...*counts on fingers* maybe a few left. For the second book in the Charles Towne Belle series, I truely am enjoying this one. And when I read a book, I never fail to find a similarity between me and the main character. It happens every time. And I like doing that. After I'm finished with this book, I 'll start "The Raven Saint", the last book in the series. Then when I'm done with that I'll change the pace of historical-fiction to fantasy/medieval, aka Kingdom Series.  Then back to historical-fiction, because M.L. Tyndall(the author of the book I'm currently reading) has released yet another book to yet another series I have yet to read.

We stopped at a McDonalds on the way home, which, was by the way, crowded! I got a McDouble and fries, and a tasty Hi-C to drink. I love Hi-C. Did I also mention I got a large cup? Yeppers.

No more talking. I've talked ya'alls ears off.
