I was only hella busy all day Friday. I spent the day watching my darlings, Anthony and Athena. From 8 until 4:30, they were all mine. We spent the morning inside, then went outside for about an hour and a half. Then we came inside for lunch, went to McDonald’s for ice cream, and then we went to the park behind the library. Afterwards we came back to the house for quiet, woke up, had snack, then I sent them off home. I had such a fun time with them. Athena was adorable and sweet as usual, and Anthony, being deprived of the love and attention he needs, really enjoyed being spoiled and having some times with me.
Some of the things Anthony said:
“Elizabeth, you look so beautiful in that dress!”
“Elizabeth, can I give you a high five for looking to beautiful?”
“Now I have two friends: You and Fletcher.”
“Elizabeth, I really like spending time with you.”
“We should plan another day like this. Okay? Can we?”
Mini conversation we had:
Father bought me a map of China so I was pointing out to everyone where I would be when I moved there. I showed Anthony the map and pointed out to him where I would be living. “Look Anthony, this is where I’m going to live in China one day.”
“You’re going to live in China? I’m never gonna live in China.”
“You’re gonna live there?”
“I wanna live there with you. Can I go to China with you? I really want to go with you and live with you.”
My thought: ALL THE YES. COME LIVE WITH ME.
Yeah. I think my heart only broke into a million pieces yesterday. I love those kids so much.
Today, Amber and I went to two graduation parties in our Clunker van named D-La (DLA is what’s on her licence plate.) We only turned around like 20 million times, only to find we were going the right way all along. I’ve had so much food today I’m stuffed (really just a lot of Gluten) and I have some Asian food here to be cooked, and I want to eat it so bad, but I don’t want to cook it unless I know I’m going to eat it all.
My weekend has been full of adventures, and it’s not even over yet. Tonight I’m going to church by myself. Little Sister is only staying for worship since she’s leading it in middle school. And the rest of my family will be driving home from the NASCAR race. Which is also another reason I’m going tonight, because I will be joining them at the race tomorrow. We leave at five in the morning. *Camera stare like on The Office*
UPDATE ON WRITING: there is none. It’s okay, you can go ahead and shoot me. I’ve been watching a lot of Supernatural, and as you can see, my weekend has been busy. Although, I could watch less Supernatural and write more. Am I? No. Yeah, so I think shooting me is perfectly reasonable.
Please help! *Insert desperate cry face* What do you do to motivate yourself to get off Netflix and write that sentence that really is refusing to move past the fingertips or that role play game in your head? I feel like I know all the tricks. I’m just lazy. Which is another thing. I haven’t been to the gym too much, because I need to exchange these new shoes for the ASICS ones that I want to get. I did go running twice though.
Okay, confession, I really don’t know how to end these things well. I feel like I’m awkward, and how does one have good transition sentences between paragraphs on a blog? How does one do a conclusion?
Good bye! (Is that it?)
Well, that’s the update on my life. (Gosh, I sound boring. Whatever.)
Fighting! 加油！Good luck!
