As Promised!

Yesterday was a very fun, easy-going, and interesting day. It was the second time, my mom has ever had a day off when I’ve had to go to work. The last time, it was December and my parents were going to Jasper to some more Christmas shopping for us. So it wasn’t such a big deal with they were in the same town as me and that also meant, my day was going to be shorter than it usually is. Since I normally stay after the girls leave to go home with my mom when she gets off work that evening. This time I got to go home at 5pm and I finally got to watch all my shows on regular times. Instead, of my dad getting me ready to go to work, my mom got to do everything, which almost sent me over the edge, because there was a lot of things she did different from my dad and we kind of have this routine. Even when I was at school and I had a sub for that day, I had to teach them everything that my normal aide does and what I do in each class. Sometimes, it was almost routine like. I got very used to it, but since I haven’t done it in a while, it was like she was changing certain parts and I wasn’t having it. I’m going to have to get used to it though, because she’s going to be doing it more often. They’re both very different, and sometimes it drives me crazy.

The night before, I prayed to have a good day because I was in need of one. My mom washed my hair and while she was texting and I was trying to remember what time it was before she got me up, and trying to add everything she had to do before my driver got there. Thursday’s are my early days and so my mind was really racing because when my dad gets me ready, he doesn’t usually text in the middle of everything and be on his phone longer than two minutes. It felt like she was on her phone longer than 20 minutes. She blow dried my hair and fed me. She was going to get me dressed first before she fed me, and we ended up arguing about that for five minutes about the reason to wait. My dad feeds me first so just in case, anything gets on the bed and my shirt gets whatever was there. I was going to wear my white sweater, and if she had given me anything other than white, would have been a disaster. Imagine that fight. Anyways, I ate and afterwards, she dressed me in my white sweater with black skulls and crossbones. My dad doesn’t think any of my skulls stuff is very professional, so my mom understands and everybody at work didn’t see or say anything about it. So it was okay. I also wore my jean like leggings. I only had to wear a clip in my hair because my bangs wouldn’t stay away from my face. At least it wasn’t the headband.

You can tell God heard my prayer because not only did I get one of my favorite drivers, but it was also beautiful outside. My mom said it was the warmest day of the year so far. I didn’t even need my jacket on when I went outside, that’s how nice it was! My mom still put socks on me, but I think that was just routine. So when I got inside the van and we were on our way, I had to do things a little differently. Instead of my mom being at work, I couldn’t exactly text her that I was on my way in different spots, so I had to get my co-workers number the night before and thankfully I remembered to do that too, because I almost forget about it. So I ended up texting her. Once I finally got there, I was happy that I was there, even though I had a blast on the way there because my driver and I have pretty good conversations. Anyways, we got inside and I finally got to see my other co-worker, who looked like she had gotten a haircut, which she did. We both had new hairstyles. I hadn’t been at work since the week before I got my hair done. Even though, I told majority of people what I was getting and they saw the pictures on my mom’s Facebook. A few hadn’t seen it, especially the residents. So I had my skull sweater, red hair, and new polish on my fingers and toes. One of the residents liked the yellow nails, it was so cute!

We did four different things yesterday. We did our usual play UNO, go on a van ride, and scents. Yesterday, we also read to the residents upstairs. Well, I didn’t. I think I’d get too insecure about how bad I’m saying the words and take too long to be reading out loud. That’s why I read to myself. The girls told me I was going to (possibly) win one of the two games we played, because they know how much I think I’m going to lose at UNO and they were trying to give me some extra faith. Just because I was having a good day, doesn’t mean God’s going to let me win one game of UNO. Not in this lifetime. I almost did though, so that’s okay. For our car ride, we went to Ferdinand, we got to see the Monastery. They’ve done a tour before and we’ve driven by it before. It is huge and interesting. Everytime the girls talk about the interior, makes me a little jealous. Hopefully sometime I’ll actually get to see the inside of it. After we got back from the van ride, we sat in the room for a bit and talked our heads off like women normally do. Which reminds me that sometime this weekend, I have to make CDs for one of the girls. She needs some Halestorm and Five Finger Death Punch and I promise I didn’t force her to listen to them, I was lucky she was a fan of both before we got  to this point. We also got on each other’s good side when we both started singing “Freak Like Me” in the room. Thankfully we were whispering the words, because we were going a little crazy.

My mom came and got me. I had to go upstairs to find her, but that was okay. When my mom and I finally did leave, it was really weird to see the sun still out and it wasn’t cold as crap. My mom to do something before actually left town and I got to see a part of Jasper, I’ve never seen. The part where the mansions are and man, are these houses beautiful! My mom showed me one of the houses worked on, its red bricked with some green. It’s the ultimate Christmas house I will say that, but it was pretty. All the houses were gorgeous, but most were like two stories and as much as some people like those kinds of hoses, I’ll be the first to admit, they’re definitely not my favorite. I’ve lived in a one story house and I hate stairs and in-house elevators. Imagine getting stuck in that elevator. On our way home, my mom and I talked about, well mostly my day and we listened to the radio. We got home just after 6pm and it was weird for me, because I actually had time to wait for The Vampire Diaries and I actually got to watch the episode in the same day! I’m not going to be able to do that next week, but it was nice to enjoy it last night. By the end of the night, my mom had gotten food from Subway and got me some movies too. She got me (finally) The Words and Here Comes The Boom. Which is what I’m planning on watching after the post is published.

Happy Friday!

So I’ve got to say, for the start of my three-day weekend. It has been a good day all around. I had a few things I could do without, but I also had a few good things  too. I started off my day at 7am, (yeah, considering I got more sleep than I’ve had in the last two days, I get up at the butt crack of dawn) and my mom was up with Emily, so she took me to the bathroom and usually she just puts my blanket on me and tells me to go back to  bed. This time around, when she took my cup to get me a fresh pop she brought a paper plate along with her. I thought it was chocolate at first, but it ended up being bagels and cream cheese. She must have gotten it on Wednesday or something, because I sure as hell didn’t know we had it. My view of having chocolate for breakfast went away on good terms, because bagels with cream cheese is just as yummy!

I stayed up a little after Emily left for school. My mom went back to sleep and I stayed up and went online. Checked Anette Olzon’s blog, Twitter, and Facebook. Before 10am, I found myself lying down on my bed and in the fetal position, slowly drifting to sleep. I slept for three hours. I woke up kind of ticked off at myself for going back to sleep, since I didn’t think I was that tired, but I guess I was. A little after I got up, my mom feed me lunch. She had gotten me Cheddar Bacon Ranch from Subway. Usually when I first wake up I’m not in the mood to eat anything. Apparently, my mom is the same way too. So she waited a bit before giving me my sub. In the meantime, I was trying to get through last night’s episode The Vampire Diaries. The CW website always messes up on me, so I honestly hate watching anything from that site. When I miss Law & Order: SVU and I watch it online, I never have that many problems with it, “knocks on wood” I know not every website is perfect, but come on! It’s Vampire Diaries here! So I’ve decided to wait until the season is over and buy the season on DVD in the fall. Yup, it sounds worse than it did in my head.

I like shopping and I’ve been looking for coats, because I’ve been using my old handy class jacket for this cold weather. Two things, if it was my decision, this jacket would be tucked away in my closet. My dad doesn’t understand that anybody who has graduated, wears them anymore. Unless they’re dating somebody still in high school, they might wear them, but since I don’t date younger guys, this sucker needs to go. Second thing is, there is no hood to it. My mom also can’t grip me very well while I’m in this jacket either. I mainly use my sweater when I go places. I don’t care if it’s snowing outside, if I’m coming home with mom from work and I have the class jacket on, there’s sometimes were I know she doesn’t have a good grip on me and she also knows, I’m kind of sacred of being dropped (blame it on my fear of heights!) and landing on a very, very cold concrete, it’s not going to be pretty. So I need a good jacket and I can’t find any of the kind I want. I’m actually tempted to ask my parents if I could get a leather jacket. I already know the answer to that though. Hell no! My mom did say I could get a Five Finger Death Punch hoodie. Winning!

I’m unsure to talk about this or not, because everytime I go to talk about something that’s coming up, plans change on me. I’m going to go for it, because I’m excited about it! I have some leftover money from Christmas and I have no idea what to do with it, so I had a good thought this afternoon. Since my mom has been driving me crazy about getting my hair cut. I do have enough money to get my hair dyed too. So I am paying for my hair appointment and I’ve never done that before. As much as I’d like to get my hair purple, I don’t think my hairdresser would like having purple dye on her fingers. I don’t even think they have purple dye that doesn’t last for 12 days. I want something that’s going to last until my brunette roots takeover again. So I’m opting out on the purple for now and I want red again. Not that auburn crap I had a few years ago. It wasn’t enough for me. You could only see the red in good sunlight and at that time, there wasn’t a lot of it to show off my new hair color. So I want it as red as Jen Ledger of the band, Skillet. I love her red hair! I want the same tint and everything. My mom likes the color, but she thinks the paleness of my skin won’t look good with it. My heart is set on having this color. If I can’t get purple, than this is as crazy I’m going to get.

I’m going to leave you with some music I’ve been going crazy for this week.

Both songs for awesome to go crazy on head banging! Now I’m going to lie down and get ready for my shows. Have a good night! (:

What’s In Your Wallet?

Yes, when I read my challenge for today I was hearing Alec Baldwin’s voice but you can’t tell me you didn’t hear it when you read it either. Truth be told, I don’t have a wallet. I don’t even have a purse. It’s kind of pointless to have either of these when somebody has to carried it for you. Yes, I use to want to carry my own stuff, but my shoulders are weird and it is probably unsafe to let me have ahold of something that has money in it with my feet. So this challenge is a little awkward for me to talk about.

Instead of me telling what is in my wallet I’m going to tell you something else. I have had wallets before. For the longest time I did have one. When I was in middle school, I bought my first wallet and if I remember right I got it at either Hot Topic or Spencer’s. It was a Playboy logo wallet. It was pink and white. It was cute and very innocent despite what my dad thought of it. Mom let me get it and we all knew after we left the store that dad would freak. When we got home, it freaked out, but not as bad since it was just a wallet. About a year ago, I lost it. Around the same time I found a new wallet and it was a The Vampire Diaries wallet. It was awesome, but I couldn’t get it.

The last time I had a purse was back in high school. When I was a sophomore and got caught with my phone. I pretty much wanted to leave not only my phone but my purse at home. For the rest of the year after that I did actually keep my purse at home. I couldn’t trust myself so it was a waste it even bring it since everybody thought I’d get out my phone, but never did after that year. Once as Junior year started up, I did bring back my purse and phone but left it alone like a good girl. As a sophomore I had a silver purse. My last two years in high school I had a small purple purse. It was cute and purple. Since then I have not had either one. I feel fine about it too.
