Thanksgiving weekend summary

so this weekend was fun!! lots of good food!! i had my best friend's family come over thanksgiving. we have been doing this forever. anyway this year her brother, wife and kid come too. it was very entertaining. she would run around in circles saying nonsense stuff but it was so cute. but it was fun. this weekend we put up the christmas decorations. my mom got my dad 3 reindeer for their anniversary. so now they are outside with all the lights. i know that doesn't sound like a great anniversary present but every year my dad wants to get some reindeer to put in our yard. but every year we don't get them because either they are too expensive when we look or they are sold out or something. so my mom found them on sale and she had a 20% off coupon so they ended up being a great deal. on friday we went to the Taste of Texas for their anniversary. very yummy. i have posted this wish list thing that i found on someone's site. try it.

Wish list

Step One:
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two:
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

so here is my wish list (maybe a little stupid)
1. Movies (pretty much any kind. i would really like any of the simpson seasons dvds except for #1 because i already have that and any of the mash season dvds except for #1&3 because i have those too)

2. cds ( i don't know what kind but i am pretty much open to any kind)
3. a trip to England or Disney World
4. a car (i would like to get a blue bug)
5. an orlando bloom poster or orlando bloom himself! (yeah that is never going to happen!)
6. gift certificate to barnes&nobles
7. gift certificate to best buy
8. GameCube games
9. anything to do with harry potter
10. harsher punishments for parole violaters......and World peace
or just christmas cards!! i am sure i could come up with other things but oh well.

why try to come up with an interesting title....i just went on and on and on

so i was able to get up at 4am this morning to go to practice. and i got there at about 4:20am. i was the first one there!! i was pretty surprised. anyway only one other person showed up and none of us had a key to get into the pool area so practice was cancelled. i will have to try again on wednesday. so anyway i love driving in the real early morning. no one is on the road. so i went home and had breakfast with my mom and i helped get ainsley up for her practice. and i made sure my mom got off to work because she was tired and didn't feel too well this morning. and then about 6:45am i went back to bed. i slept for a little while and then started doing laundry and started dinner. we had spagetti. and i like to let it cook in a crockpot all day long with meatballs or sausages in it. that is pretty much all i did today and read. oh and my mom sent me more pictures of murphy that she got from andrew. he has gotten so big. and he is still a puppy. i will try to post some pictures later.

class schedule and swimming

so i signed up for my classes next year. after i signed up i noticed that i had NO FRIDAY CLASSES!! isn't that awesome??? i didn't mean to do that but i did!! i am taking: English, college algebra, U.S. history and some computer class that i forgot the name of.
this saturday i tried out a swimming group that swims everyday except for sunday in the morning. Mon.-Fri. is from 4:30-5:30 am and saturday is from 6:00-7:00 am!!! so early!! i was so tired after the first practice on saturday. i guess from the combination of getting up early and from swimming. i was so sore afterwards too. i am sure it will get better. anyway i can come home and crash. so tomorrow will be my second practice. well i need to get to bed if i am going to be able to get up in time for practice!!!

stuff

so the week is almost over. ainsley gets to go to court tomorrow for her stupid ticket. some policeman gave her a ticket for not wearing her seatbelt on private property!! yes klein high school is private property. that is why they have their own policeman. and the guy that gave her a ticket was a sheriff not with klein police. so i get to take care of some kitties again this weekend. i like taking care of pets. i want to go see polar express sometime soon. i think it just came out. i also want to see the incredibles. but i would like to see polar express first. might go with my mom soon because she wants to see it too. we have the book. we got it when it first came out because we were little back then. ainsley has a swim meet tomorrow. i might go help i might not. depends on how i feel. i will probably at least go watch. i will probably go and bring a book to read. ainsley is moving to klein aquatics. i think it is a good move. brian (coach) is cool. i can't wait for the holidays. lots of people come over and lots of food and presents and fun. i am still trying to figure out which classes to take next semester.

a summary of the weekend

so this weekend wasn't too bad. i didn't get much sleep but it was ok. most of the time i watched tv or movies that i had rented or i would chat with people on AIM. i got to take care of 3 cute little kitties this weekend too. and i get to take care of them this next weekend too!! yeah!! and they pay very well too!! i got $30 for saturday and sunday!! isn't that awesome?? did i tell you guys that i got a new dvd player for my tv? yeah my first one was a cheapy one that i got for $30. i spent a little more than that on the new one. anyway it is the same maker as my tv and my tv works pretty well. i need to return my movies tonight. i will probably do that after dinner which i am making!! i love to cook!! yummy....spagetti!!
i can start registering for classes on-line today. but i really haven't figured out what i am going to take. i know i am going to take a math class. probably college algebra. i will probably take english and a history. maybe a science class. not sure what else. i would like to take 15 hours. but i guess i should figure out which classes i want to take and then see what kind of a schedule i can make.

November 05, 2004

i saw a shark tale today. it was cute. i stayed up until like 3am this morning and then i got up at like 9am. i am a little tired but not too tired. ITS THE WEEKEND!! nothing to special happening this weekend. i am going to get together with annie on sunday!! i haven't seen her in forever. but that is all i have planned after today. i get to take ben to the vet in an hour. not much to say.

ramblings

my parents are leaving today to visit andrew. so i get to be home alone. i am happy, sad, and scared. i am always scared of burglars and stuff like that. like what would i do if someone broke into my house while i was there? other than calling 911? let them find me? hide? or what if they find me before i can do anything and they kill me? yeah i am a scared-cat. the cool thing is that i can do whatever i want. but i am sad that i am not going with them. i am trying to find a friend to come stay over one night but no success yet.
yesterday we went up to cy-fair college and i applied and everything. i talked to a counselor. so i am all ready to register on november 9th. i am ready to go back to school. that is sad. oh well at least it is true.
i am glad bush won again. it will be interesting to see what he does in the next four years. anyway kerry gets to go back to his rich wife and continue on being a trial lawyer. my mom said that is what he did before he was a senator. at least i think it was a trial lawyer.....well some kind of lawyer. and his wife is rich because she was married to a i think it was a hienz and he died so she got all his money.

Elections

well today is election day. i voted for bush. i think so far bush is winning. i hope he does win!!
anyway today i went and got a new dvd player. i even tried it out to check if it works and it does so far
on sunday i went to barnes and nobles and got some new books. i have been reading this series called Daughters of the moon. i got 6 of them this summer and read them. and then i got 4 more of them on sunday and i have been reading them. i am on #10. there are 12 total so far. so when i get some more money i am going to go get them. i am also getting into another series called the A-list. i got the first 2 this summer and another one just came out so i got that on sunday too. i just can't wait until the next harry potter comes out. if you want to get me a gift, get me a gift card to barnes and nobles or just buy me a book!! i love to read if you can't tell. well i am going to go watch the news some more to see how the polls are going

November 01, 2004

i am already to vote tomorrow. i even found my voter's registration card. i wasn't sure where it was for a while because of when i moved back home i wasn't sure if i had put it in my desk or what. but i found them. i know i am going to vote for bush and ted poe i am not sure about the others but i guess i will figure it out!!!
