I honestly wanted to make a post yesterday, but things got jammed up and I didn't have time. So sorry...again.
So I have a lot to say, and no idea how to begin saying. Let me see....oh yeah! My family has finally got our beautiful Christmas tree set up in the living room. Now normally, we always have no problem setting it up and decorating. But this year, oh goodness, this year it was different. See, my dad bought this HUGE tree, and my sibs and I had to haul it inside. But that thing was so heavy! I felt like collapsing only after ten minutes of holding it, and that's not new to me, since I'm not a heavy lifter. Anyways, after like an HOUR OR SO we finally got it set up but had to wait til' the next day to decorate. And if that wasn't enough, a couple of days after decorating...the tree collapsed twice! I was half tempted to yell "Timber" but no one else would have been laughing. To make a long story short, yes, it is stable now.
I can't believe it is almost Christmas! I am so so so so so excited! I'm pysched! I'm ecstatic! Can I go on about how thrilled I am?
I'll be serious. Me parents have already done Christmas shopping, and are being very very secretive. Now I know what they are getting my brother, but since the dear boy is on Blogger, and will be reading this blog later, I'll be a good little girl and not spill the beans. Still have no idea what they are getting me. I'm all ears, trying to figure it out. But I'm frankly scared, because sometimes people end up getting me things I don't bother with later. At the same time, I'm still expecting something great.
Hey, did I mention my family went to the town Christmas parade today? Obviously not. So anyways, we had a quick breakfast of donuts and then waited in our cold van til' it was a few minutes away from the parade starting. When it did.....ugh I'm surpised I didn't lose my hearing. YES ALL THOSE LOUD FIRETRUCKS! I plugged my ears until they were gone but only uncovered them when candy was being thrown.
The parade was completely awesome, except I'm still not convinced of who clowns really are. One tried to make me hug him, but I shook my head as to say I wasn't sold on it. Wouldn't he ought to know, if I were hiding, I was scared of clowns. I embarrass myself alot. I'm thirteen and I'm still scared of clowns. What is it about them that I don't like? I feel sorry for that clown though, he looked kind of disappointed.
Anywho, I'll tell you my favorite part of the parade. The marching band! They were playing this year! Last year they didn't, because it was too wet and cold. But alas, they did it this time since z weather was nice. I also liked all the floats and old cars that drove by. Just your typical small town parade, not much to brag about.
Ok, I think I'm done here. See you all on Monday guys!
