It's been good today. I woke up before 9:00 this morning, and belive me that's a record because I'm always getting up later than that. Anyways, I did get up early and had a bagel for breakfast, also watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV at the moment as well. But I think it's a crime they call it a parade anymore, since all they are doing is showing what's on Broadway, talking too much, and giving musical performances while the floats and balloons are going by. I did manage to catch a glimpse of some of the balloons though! I saw a Sonic the Hedgehog one, and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. Floats? Nope, didn't catch any because I went had to go practice my guitar(you'd think my parents would give me a day off).
So I when I finished that, I got on my laptop and went on Youtube for awhile. Then my mom wanted me to help out with the Thanksgiving meal, so reluctantly I went and buttered the rolls before they were put in the oven. That's all I did. I'm a nice daughter. I like helping my mother.
After a few more minutes, my stomach was rumbling and I was praying the meal was finished. Lone behold, when I was right in the middle of watching a video, my dad called me out of the room saying it was time to eat. So my family gathered at the table, said our thanks and feasted! While I was digging through the cut-up turkey trying to find a nice piece, I pulled out a wishbone! No not the dog(hehe). The bone that is in a turkey and is a Thanksgiving tradition, that whenever someone gets hold of the wishbone, they can make a wish. Even though it is silly, I still want to make a wish before the day is out.
Anyhoot, the dinner was quite delicious. I had a piece of turkey and three rolls. Normally I'd add some cranberry sauce to that but I discovered last year I lost my taste for it. My stomach was already protesting, as I hadn't had turkey in awhile. So I just scraped the crumbs and stray pieces of turkey into the trash can and stuck my plate and fork into the dishwasher. While we were eating, my dog, Penny, was barking outside. She was mad because we didn't give her any turkey, lol. My little sis went out and gave her a few pieces. Penny is now a happy dog.
You know, up to now I never really realized how much I have to be thankful for. I've got a roof over my head, a crazy family, equally crazy but lovable friends, a playful dog, plenty of food, and I have GOD to thank for this. The LORD has really blessed me and I'm glad this very day was put aside to thank him for all our blessings.
Ok so as I was looking at my comments the other day, one of you were wanting to see my wishlist. So I decided "Hey why not? I don't have anything else to say". I'll start out with the movie category:
Those are the only movies on my list as that I personally want. And don't think me wrong, but here are the reasons I want them: For Soul Surfer, this movie really inspired me. And I've only seen it one time so it would be nice to have it myself. And as for Beauty and the Beast, well...must I tell you? It's a classic and I love it!
(Mom, you can pick any of the three to get me, teehee)
(I love to listen to music, nuff' said!)
(Please don't say anything mean, I've never owned an American Girl doll before and I've always wanted one!)
(I could really use a pair)
This is probably the only book I really really want. It was awesome!
So so, to begin my happy post, we got our Christmas photos done last week. And this time, my parents were in them. It's been years since they were last in a photo and now they were freaking out of how old they were. So just to be a nice daughter, I'll skip the pics of my parents to relieve them. I might still put the ones of me and my sibs, we are more interesting to look at, lol. They are already available to view online but we haven't got the printed ones out that we usually put in Christmas cards, so yeah, we'll have those in...I don't know. A couple of weeks? One week?
School is............................nevermind. I can't find a word. Math, my mom explains the lessons to me and I do them. Easy for pre-Algebra actually. Started a new Science pace, which I believe is more weather and wind current stuff. Language Arts...I am so glad this is my last year in Spelling. Next year, I think I'll be doing the Lord of the Rings study guide my sister got at the homeschool conference a few months back. Yes people, a whole stand of LOTR! Books and study guide alike! And--get this! The people running the stand had a rug poster thingy that had three autographs signed by THREE OF THE CAST MEMBERS. I cannot believe I was actually looking at it. That's one thing to see signatures. But when will I ever meet them?
Ok enough of my squealing. Back on the subject of school. History is still talking about things I already know. I just finished learning(again) on the Revolutionary War and feel like I have the order of events memorized. And my mom said I wasted time watching TV. Anyways, yeah. That's all I have to say about that. And Bible? Bible is teaching me about Christian philosphers and prophets of such. Early Christianity things.
Ok...I think I've pretty much said everything I want. I was going to include my Christmas list in this post but you don't want to stay here forever do you?
To those who have been annoyed at my post lack, I am truely sorry. But as my title said, I have my reasons. You'll know when I tell you what has been going on with my silly life.
Last week my little sis caught a cold and recovered on Friday, then I started to get a stuffy and runny nose that evening, the same symptons of what my sis had. So I said to myself, "It's just allergies you'll get over it.". Oh but I was wrong. The next morning on Saturday I woke up and felt so disgusting all over! My nose was superly-stuffed and my throat felt like a cat was hanging onto it with it's claws out. I stayed in bed for half the morning, got out later, watched an old episode of Doctor Who on our instant streaming Netflix thing, and munched on french fries which my mother(the dear sweet lady she is) bought me.
So with things going good, I expected to be better on Sunday. Right? Wrong! I felt just as icky so I had to stay home from church with only that pyscho cat Max to keep me company. I wasn't that feeble you know, I was able to get up and make myself some toast to eat. I watched a movie and tried to get some sleep, but that failed, and I can't say I didn't try. I tried once that morning after I woke up and twice that afternoon. And I tend to be a wee bit spoiled when I am sickly. Yeah I sent my momzy on a wild goose chase for a chocolate milk shake. She is such a sweet lady, did I mention that?
And now my friends, I am happy to say I feel splendid now. Except for my nose, I am fine. But now my older sister is suffering from my inflicted cold. Sorry! I didn't really mean to. But I don't want to stay sick forever. We're getting Christmas photos done this week!
Yes we are getting them this week did I mention that as well?
**gets blank looks**
That's what I thought. See, we always go to the chiropractor the second Friday of the month, so this is a golden oppurtunity. Why is such a big deal of getting photos done in the studio? Well for the past two years my family wasn't able to afford it, so we had to do the photos at home. But now we are ok, so we can afford to get it done now and I am excited! I already picked the dress I'm going to wear, it matches my earrings perfectly. My mom always sends pictures to friends and relatives, so I'm gonna play a little trick on them. I'm going to style my hair to where my ears will be showing and see if anybody can guess if they are clip-ons and pierced(just between you and me, I'll tell you! They're clip-ons, tee hee).
Now I won't bore you with school. That subject is not on my agenda, except I will tell you I am anxious for Thanksgiving break to hurry up and get here.
So...........I think that's it. I'm going to like, go work on my stories or something now.
