For today…(Tuesday, november 27, 2008) It's Thanksgiving, and I'm home this year with my family-Mom's cooking a much anticipated Thanksgiving Dinner, and the rest of us are doing an assortment of different things. I'm being lazy and making this entry.

Outside my window…It's warming up after yet another cold night and the sun is shining.

I am thinking…that dinner needs to hurry and get done so I can have some squash casserole and EGGNOG!

From the learning room…we left off in American History learning about JFK and LBJ

I am thankful family, and being able to be with them this year on Thanksgiving

From the kitchen…Momma is making traditional TG dinner: Turkey, Squash Casserole, Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Taters and Gravy, etc.

I am wearing…despite the coolness of the day, shorts and a t-shirt..I'll be rethinking that decision as the day plays out

I am creating…the only thing I'm creating is this entry for my blog...maybe momma will let me help with something in the kitchen

I am going…slowly insane?

I am reading...BREAKING DAWN! Finally, the last installment of the "Twilight Series"

I am hoping…that dinner will taste as good as I remember :)

I am hearing…paramore on my myspace playlist and the vacuum running in the back of the house somewhere

Around the house…not a whole lot is going on. Dad is fixing a broken piece of our couch(finally), my sis - SuburbanGypsy - is back vacuuming, my nephew - Lil Man - is off somewhere, probably looking to help mommy vaccum, Mickey Jade is prolly underfoot and Daniel is helping Dad, while Mom is cooking.

One of my favorite things…curling up under a pile of thick blankets and slipping into blissful sleep

A few plans for the rest of the week...finish up this Thanksgiving day, Friday is unknown and Saturday, hopefully I'll be going to see TWILIGHT the movie with my niece Jamie. We'll just have to see how that pans out. Saturday is blank, Sunday is Church to see Josh who got home from his 2 year mission and Cameron of course who is leaving for his in January :)

November 18, 2008

For today…(Tuesday, november 18, 2008) my motivation level is pretty much at zero

Outside my window…the sun is setting, and the temperature is dropping

I am thinking…that my life is gonna go on, with or without him.

From the learning room…my momma told me that bats don't drink blood, they lap it up

I am thankful family, the people who(even when they don't want to) put up with my many different moods and crappy attitude.

From the kitchen…my mom is making pancakes, sausage and eggs for dinner! Yummeh

I am wearing…shorts and a hoodie, despite the dropping temperatures

I am creating…admittedly, I'm not creating much of anything today.

I am going…to school tomorrow

I am reading...Eclipse...again

I am hoping…that things will get better-at least on an emotional/mental level.

I am hearing…paramore on my myspace playlist

Around the house…the floors need sweeping cause I'm a lazy lump and forgot to do it last night

One of my favorite things…walking on the shore of the lake in companionable silence, watching the waves lapping gently over the sand.

A few plans for the rest of the week...same as the last entry, study my behind off so I can get at least an A or B on any upcoming tests and keep my mind straight about things I can't help

November 17, 2008

For today…(monday, november 17, 2008) I'm trying to maintain a positive attitude about things I can't change.

Outside my window…the sun is setting, casting hues of orange across the skyline

I am thinking…that maybe it's time to reconstruct the wall, maybe put a few more bricks in place

From the learning room…apparently girls in my American History take offense to the traditional domestic role played by women.

I am thankful teachers and the effort they put into helping their students live up to their potential

From the kitchen…I rarely do anything in the kitchen that doesn't turn out as a disaster, but my mamma is definitely cooking some delightful chicken and dumplings for dinner!

I am wearing…holey jeans, flipflops, and an oversized dress shirt that is generally used for sleeping. I was just overly lazy and didn't have the motivation to dress up for school

I am creating…hopefully two 2 pages essays for extra credit in my American History class.

I am going…nowhere but to bed

I am reading....Twilight...again

I am hoping…that my thoughts stay clear and I can focus on something other than the fact that I can already feel his absence so keenly

I am hearing…kids show on the TV, Daniel and Mamma talking, Mickey Jade doing her usual

Around the house…eh, there's birds in the living room

One of my favorite things…walking on the shore of the lake in companionable silence, watching the waves lapping gently over the sand.

A few plans for the rest of the week...keep my mind off of that idiot, study my butt off for upcoming tests and stay as busy as humanly possible.
