Happy Halloween

It's Halloween! =]
we are going to Nana's for a birthday dinner for her. She turned 83 on Wednesday. I feel kind of bad though because none of the other grand kids get birthday parties but since my birthday is 2 days before Nana's, its kind of like a party for me too.
I haven't read my second chapter for my class but I think I will be okay. I am going to take 2 tests at Aunt Jill's if we get back before trick or treating starts. They will be pretty easy I think. I may take my second book for my final test just in case.
I am finally wearing makeup today... the only part that didn't come out well was the mascara. it's kind of clumpy but I fixed it. Nana likes it when I wear makeup so i did. =]
I am waiting for my batteries for my camera to charge. if they don't I will have to take some cheap ones. I will also take my charger so they can finish charging at Nana's
My camera has been acting strange. I may need a better one. So I may get a better one, a cannon most liekly. Or maybe another flip... So many choices. It's just the batteries work and all but sometimes I have to take them out and put them back in to turn it on...

Gonna be a bit busy

Today I am still cleaning the house. I swept the dining room and kitchen today. I don't know what I am going to do the rest of the day. I may just go upstairs and read for a bit or something. I have 1 more chapter to read for class.
Sorry for this update being so small.

I'm back

These past weeks have been kind of hectic. I got all of my homework done by Wednesday this week which was nice. I am uploading a few videos to youtube right now but I have more cleaning to do. I am focusing on my room today. I have decided to do a project a day. That doesn't mean just crafts though, yesterday, I guess you could say I had tiny projects. I prepped some projects while I organized things. Pretty much all of my stuff is now in my room.
Yesterday I:
Cleared my craft stuff from the table
Did 3 loads of laundry
took everything of mine out of the living room
took everything from the computer room
took care of recyclables
sorted my craft drawers
finished off 2 hats

today i am focusing on the rest of my room and vacuuming.

Home early

We came home early this morning. I think it was about 1 a.m. Dad felt kind of weird staying over. Levi, dad, and I are all that way kinda. It rained down there so the move was kind of crappy. The house is really nice.
I guess the weekend before we came, the boys painted the living room and got paint on the hardwood floor.
Cass and I went to Meijer and got beer and soda and chips.When she paid for the food I had to stand by the door because they have a policy I guess about buying beer when you are with someone who is below drinking age.
We got pizza for lunch. It was good warm but not cold. Dad decided to leave at 7:30 their time and I didn't fight it. I got to go on a nice walk with my brother before we left. I miss him lots!
I didn't get out of the car when we stopped for gas so I wasn't too comfy on the way back. We went to McDonald's and got drinks and burger king to get food. I got a chicken sandwich but didn't eat it all. I had to throw it out. I should have gotten a whopper. Oh well...
So we stumbled in at 1 a.m. and I went right up to bed. once my head hit that pillow I was out.
Woke up at about 9:30 this morning. I was irritated by some weird noise in my room last night. I think it was a bug or something... ehhh.
I have already taken a short walk this morning. I dropped off the treats for the boys and taked to Heidi for a bit. They are all grown up. -sigh- I am so tired though still. Heidi did make me a cup of coffee which was very nice. We figured out I have known them for 9 years... how nuts is that!?
I have to take my tests today. My birthday is tomorrow and I don't want to take any then. =] I may hang out with Aunt Jill tomorrow. I just need to get out of my house tomorrow. I don't want to waste my birthday!

I love downtime

Not like I should really have any... I am just taking a few seconds to write something here quickly. I have been super busy with school, crafts, reading, writing, and planning the trip to see Levi and Cass this weekend. It's only going to be about 24 hours but its all good. I am so excited!
When dad comes home tonight, I will have to help dad put the coffee table and chair in the van. I will most likely put my big bag in the car and save toiletries for the morning. Cass called last night and asked what kind of cake i wanted. I'm not really picky but she wanted specifics. So as far as i know, I am getting a funfetti cake with vanilla frosting. I was wondering why she called though, I just feel like my brother should know what kind of cake i like.
School is making me go nuts. I am just wishing that I had more chapters to read so i didn't have to be in front of the computer all of the time. The teacher isn't very helpful but I have talked to a few of my classmates which is nice.
It is freezing in Michigan but we are trying not to use the heat much. especially since the heat just rises to the second floor. Most of the time when I am home alone, I don't go up there. my hands do get cold easily so here I sit in my warm hoodie and pj pants.
I am in pjs because im not gonna go anywhere tonight. I have to get everything on my list done and maybe a few extra things.
yay for trip this weekend!

Haul from Michael's & Joanns

Here is my haul video from last weekends shopping spree at Michaels and Jo Annns

Oh boy...

So I told myself I am finally going to start my homework for my computer class. I am almost finished but there is a problem.... it asks for us to comeplete a memo but there is no memo template that will download to my computer. I think I know a way to get one but I am so confused!
The discussion topics finally worked yesterday but I only posted once so I have to post 3 times within the next few days. I have some more videos to upload.
I am so glad that I have rechargeable batteries because I went through both sets making videos within the last 24 hours.
I need to make breakfast or something.
Oh... I started writing a book, just a silly love story, but still. I am writing this bad boy by hand.
and I got Autumns coasters covered. I still need to find a way to attach and hang them but I can do that later.
Nana and I are going to go to a scrap-booking crop. Nana has no idea what she is getting herself into. I mean, I haven't ever been to one but I have seen... and she may get a little overwhelmed. I hope not too overwhelmed. Its nice though. it only costs 5 dollars without food and drinks. It is right in my Aunts trailer park too so she said she would bring us food. I don't think Nana will be able to last 12 hours but I may go until 9 or so. It starts at 10 a.m. and goes to 10 p.m. The nice thing about it being close to my Aunts house is that it takes about 30 seconds to get to where it is by car.
Mom was supposed to bring me a blanket to tie for Dominic for Christmas but she forgot it at Nana's
I am going to upload some videos to my youtube channel today. That is where all of the videos I post come from besides the short ones. I can upload those directly to the blog.

I'm trying

My computer class makes sense now. I am taking a break from homework because I don't understand some of it. I wish I could e-mail my teacher but the school website is down. I would love to post to DT's when I have questions but since its not working I can't. I got in contact through facebook with one of my classmates and we have been able to ask each other questions.
I would try to use moms computer but it doesn't have the software on it. Oy... it is almost noon and I have been up since 6:30. I haven't done anything but homework today
Here is a project that i am working on. I am doing the second set, the set for autumn, today and then i will have to find a punch to go through the coasters so i can hang them.

Yesterday, I got the news that an old classmate of mine died. it is kind of hard for me to even think about. she was found dead. that is all i can really say. she didn't do it herself most likely.

The assignments in italics are finished but not yet typed. I have been cleaning my room and making piles of stuff. A lot of my old stuff is going to be donated to a place not far from here. All of the profits from that store bring funds to local festivals and such. For christmas for the little kids, I am basically going to be giving them hand-me-down type of gifts. I am making sure they are in good shape. I will make a video later showing what I mean. There are just some things I don't want to store that I think the kids can use.
I need to start wearing my glasses but I can't seem to wear them when I read or use the computer. it was never that way before.

Sorrry I haven't written

I have been studying like crazy all week. When I wasn't studying, I was getting sick. Weather in Michigan is horribly cold this weekend so I may just finish my homework, tests, and paper. Then I am going to get started on constructing a mini album usuing paper towel and toilet paper rolls.
