Born This Way

I got Born this way on Amazon for .99 for the electronic copy. I thought my gift card would taske care of part of it but it wouldn't register. So, I got 4 quarters out for dad, who said i could use his MasterCard. :)
On a more sad note, we got a phone call that Grandma broke her leg this morning. she fell getting out of bed. I am unsure if dad is going to be coming home before going to see her but I want to go to see whats going on. she broke it in 2 places and may need surgery.
I only have a few days of class left before taking a communications class. I have to get the assignments and save them to my computer so that I don't forget. I am going to be super busy the next few days.
Saturday I have to babysit for a few hours.

Little worker bee

I have done a lot this morning but the biggest news: I GOT MY PERMIT!
Aunt Jill took me yesterday and I got it. I only missed 6 on the exam when I could have missed 10. On the small quiz on signs i only missed 1 which is good.
right now I am trying to relax a bit. I have a load of laundry in the washer and one that will go in right after. Also, Banana bread is in the oven and it smells SO good. While it has been baking I have started the laundry, gotten things set with my phone, typed this, checked facebook, and I will be studying soon.

A day of rememberance

Grandpa C.
Today is usually a sad day for me but I'm going to try to be in good spirits. Today marks 4 years since my grandfather passed away. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a Saturday and the weather wasn't too good but not horrible either. Montana and I wanted to get out of the hospital so we went to her dads for maybe a half an hour and I felt like I needed to call my dad. While the phone was ringing, he was taking his last breath. its kinda weird to think about that. Maybe I had some sort of ESP but I think maybe its because we had gotten so close and with family sometimes, you just have that "feeling".
That year was a bad year for death in general. Devin and Kade passed away on March 19 of that year and today is actually Kades 16th birthday. Devin was 16 when they passed away. It's just really had to stomach sometimes.
Happy birthday bud. <3

Still yardwork

I have been working with dad in the yard since yesterday. we haven't done anything yet today but I think we are going to burn leaves and stuff. Although, I wish I could have worked in the yard monday it was a bit cold and I was sick. I did some streching and things on Monday though so I have been keeping active.
Josh asked if I wanted to live with him for a while to get a job but nana doesn't think that it is a good idea. she has some points though
i would have to find a place to live after finding a job
find a job
all of that good stuff.
in that town, you can walk everywhere or ride the bus but it would still be a bit difficult.

Inconciderate Children

... annoy me. I was out working in the yard yesterday and recording for my video blog and the boys next door climbed onto their side of the fence and started saying things. it wasn't what they said that bugged me but it was the fact that they felt they could look over in our yard and just keep going on and on.
My point is, if it was mom or dad working in the yard, it wouldn't have happened. I understand that they are little but you would expect parents to teach their children some sort of consideration. If my brother and i would have done something like that, my parents would have flipped and made us go apologize.
Also, last night, I heard sirens and they kept getting closer and closer. I thought maybe it was a tornado siren but I didn't get up to check it out. Dad told me the cops went to the house behind ours for some reason. My thought is that the neighbors who were bugging me may have called because they had a fire burning their leaves and it was still smoldering a bit. I am unsure at this point.
On a good note, I did get most of the yard cleaned out yesterday. The high temperature for today is 71 so I am going to do homework while it is still chilly and then I may work out there some more. =] My face is a tad sunburned.
