Staples

As beautiful as they might seem, staplers are very dangerous.  Friday was great, don’t get me wrong!  But after a day (Saturday) of riding my bike in the rain all over “tar-nation” (to get milk) and getting soaked, Sunday seemed like a fantastic fresh start.  Little did I know that later that afternoon I’d be hostage to a whole lot of pain.  So, when my Mom decided to throw a rummage sale, me and Sam were sent all over the neighborhood to put up signs.  While on the corner of Howell and Oklahoma near a gas station with lots of traffic, Samantha dropped a sign and flew into the road.  She was sent chasing it and in the process she dropped the stapler we were using.  Guess where that stapler went?  Right under my foot!  When I stepped down I was shocked to see that a staple was in my foot!  “Owwwwwwwww!”  It took forever to pull it out and it hurt!  Lesson learned.  Don’t trust staplers or sisters.

Swimming

I went swimming yesterday and better yet, I didn’t get sunburn. It was after school and therefore we didn’t have to put any on. It was refreshing and wonderful. I practiced diving,some laps, and had some “noodle wars”… I love swimming if you haven’t already noticed. I felt bad for Samantha the whole time because she had got sunburn at track and could barely swim. Anyways, it was nice to visit with my grandparents and get some time to relax. Believe it or not, I’m in a wonderful mood! I hope it doesn’t get spoiled by some catastrophe… Now I’m going to conclude this post before any “jinxing” happens!

Look, mermaids!


Sparklers

You know those great fireworks that you can hold in your hand?  They look like wands and they’re called sparklers…  I love them!  We had like a ton left from last year so we used them last night on Samantha’s birthday and we had a blast.  What is your favorite type of firework?

Yesterday

Yesterday was so much fun! I confirmed my Mom’s addiction of flowers, went to a greenhouse,  and played outside all day.   Could it have been a better day?  She bought enough flowers to cover our whole car yesterday! Boy, this weather is great! Later today I promise to post some pictures I took yesterday. It’s my sister’s birthday today (the one you sang to in lunch) and she’s having some friends over, so that will be fun… “Ta ta for now, everyone!”  I’ll tell you how the party went tomorrow!  “Tomorrow, tomorrow, there’s always tomorrow…  If only a day away!”  (That’s a very old, but catchy and unforgettable tune.)

My Conscience…

Yesterday (pardon my french) was a screwed up day! Ask Ashley? Though, I had no shortage of laughter ever during my classes I was constantly being “slow.” In Ms. Mattson’s a girl that Ms. Jeness said was from the “far east” (meaning her classroom) came in and I immediately thought she was really from Africa, the Middle East, or Southwestern Asia. So, when I was talking to Ashley about it during lunch and planning to complement her on her fluent English I was humiliated. Gash!!! I’m crazy. As if that wasn’t enough, on the way home as I was walking across the playground I truthfully thought that what was really my sister was my dog sitting in the car? What is wrong with me? Salami sandwiches don’t have high amounts of sugar and intelligent strainers in them, do they?

(There is no picture crazy and funny enough to describe my feelings of yesterday’s episode right now, I apologize.)
