July 2009


MichiganFriday, my mom, my sister and I drove to Indiana. It took about an hour or two. It wasn’t bad at all, most people complain about car rides but it really helps when you have ear phones playing music to you and a pillow to tempt you to fall a sleep. (Which I did) The ride over was really beautiful at the beginning, but then I fell asleep and then rain pattering on the roof woke me up. We stopped at a taco bell. Yum! It was great tacos are just, wow, their great. We left and oh, yes!! I forgot we drove up with my mom’s high school friend and her husband and son. They’re all really nice and funny. So we followed them to Indiana. We reached Indiana and stopped at the Fort Wayne’s Children Zoo, where my mom’s other high school friend works. It was great, we saw Sea Lions, Monkey’s, Owl’s…..but what was really amazing was that every exhibit was right up to the animals so we saw I Bengal tiger probably…uh, two feet away. It was amazing, the tiger’s name was…oh, gosh. Uh, for some reason I have a strong instinctive feeling that his name was Teddy. So anyway, we also went on this sky lift, or you know one of those ski lifts over the zoo. And let me just tell you it was extremely freeing, because I didn’t have any shoes on so the wind was whipping through my toes.  And as the ride ended we had a few seconds to get off the seat and out of the way. So I was just sort of freaking out, and I got really anxious, ha, so I got on the ground and started walking very fast in front of it, then my sister started laughing so I got out of the way, oh. We left the zoo, and drove to this Animal Hospital, where my mom’s friend works, it was a great experience! She had a rat named Jack that she was taking care of and I actually got to hold the rat, then she had two birds, they were great really beautiful, then their was an owl it had huge orange eyes, and we got to see the owl eat. So it flew down,   wings span must have been 5 or 6 feet long. It was incredible! She had another bird that was a very bright red her name was Carrol then we met three snakes. This is just going on and on isn’t it? Well still I have a bit more. We left there and went to an Italian restaurant called Caruso it was delicious. We headed back to my mom’s friends house, and it was right on the Lake which was really nice. Okay, I’m getting kind of over the part in Indiana so I want to tell you about our drive to Michigan because it was really fantastic. We drove to Michigan. BLAH BLAH BLAH, the ride was a howling good time. BLAH BLAH. AH!! Michigan, we drove up this gravel drive way and in front of us was this stunning red house with stone walls, and ugh! It was amazing! Next doors to that were two little cottages the second one was the one we stayed in. Pictures are deeply in order. Really you need to see them. It was small and simple. I loved it! We hung out around the camp fire, we made smores too!  The first crackers we used tasted like card board, I suppose that’s one way to taste your first smore. But then we got new ones and they were much better. After that night the next morning my sister and I went fishing on the dock. And oh…..I didn’t catch anything, though honestly I did almost catch a bird, I was reeling by bait in and their was seaweed or “lake weed” stuck to by bait, a bird flew down and knocked the “lake weed” off. Then I did catch a stick, but what a bummer it was considering as I was reeling it in I thought it was a fish. So then after that we got on the boat and rode over to a sand bar, a really shallow beach and played there all day. Oh, and all on our way there we jumped in the water which was a stunning turquoise. Then on our way back we went to a restaurant called the Dockside and celebrated my mom’s high school friend’s boyfriend’s uncle’s 60th birthday. Mouth full. Then we went back to the cottage but on our way back we stopped by this creek called Cold Creek. Wonder why? I jumped in the water and it was like shoving your foot bare into two feet of snow, then spilling burning water on it, you have that intense wave of coldness that is SO unbearable! SO then I wrapped my feet in a towl, we were sort of have a competetion to see who get the furthest and I did. Ha. I made it about 30 feet away from the boat. But I couldn’t stand it. So we boated back home and I prety much just fell asleep right away. The next morning we went tubing!!!! I love tubing it’s like nothing else! We went crazy, I went with Orion a few times then I went by myself and it was so much fun. I was holding on and my feet touched the water so they were flopping all over the place. It hurt. Truthfully. Then my feet got stuck under the water so I was slipping back, but I would not. Let go, of course not! But as I was being pulled back my fingers kept unhooking from the handles and I was nervous that I was going to fall in because I was trying so hard not to fall in. So when the boat stopped I sat there my arms all limp and I sort of rolled over into the water. Then on our way back to the cottage we heard some Loons which are rare to see so we went to look for them but we didn’t find them instead we saw a Bald Eagle! It was incredible like nothing you’d ever seen. It was huge and beautiful! I had such a great time in Michigan, after the tubing we left and ahhh…..I just had a great time.

Sometimes I get nervous if I’m healthy or not, and I know I am but I’m just a worry-wort. Unfortunately there’s not a lot I can do about that. Though I try not to worry so much about that stuff I really can’t help it. Usually it’s just a stomach ache or a head ache or anything else that makes me completely paranoid. And when I do feel that way, it effects the way I sleep, because I’m up all night trying to convince myself that everything is absoulutely alright. But then I always staet feeling better when I watch a show that makes me feel cozy, but also I feel like someone who decides how anyones life will go like god will watch over you, and especialy if you try to help someone or the Earth or just stay confident that everything is fine then I can’t help but believe that that is true, and you’ll be okay. So though I get really nervous about my health, and people’s health I always remember that it could just be in my mind and just the fact that I get really nervous. Ugh. It’s a curse, I’m sure of it. There’s worse things in the world but being nervous is probably top ten. Yeah. Well if you read that, thanks for reading all that! Earth-Erde

Guys, whoa! I lost a tooth, one down two left! Though there was more blood then I expected. 😦  Oh well. But now I feel like there is this big gaping hole in my mouth, well there kind of is.

rain drops

Today I went to a soccer camp, and it was raining. I didn’t mind it at all. Though the rain was icy, not the calm drops you usually have any day. So it did make everything a little worse. But we did a bunch of exercises like one was where we had to run around the outside of this big square, and there were three people in your team. So you stood in a straight line and when our coach said “go” then you start running and dribbling the ball around the square, then all your team does that, you all have to do it untill you went around 10 times. And luckily we won each time. But during that, the rain was begining to get harder and harder and I mean, I have glasses so unless you have some sort of ingenius invention called the wind-sheild-wipers on your glasses then you were kind of blind. All I could see were drops of rain. Then finally the rain just got really bad so we all ran under a shelter and we left earlier than usual. That was my day!

HarryPotterHalfBloodPrinceBookSO just a few weeks ago I went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and the next day I saw it again! And I have to say it had to be the best movie I’ve seen in a while. No surprise it was the best out of all the other movies in the series. Even as movies go. Half Blood Prince was the best book in the series too. (For me) Ugh!!! I really want to see it again. It’s been too long since I’ve seen it and I really…eh. I don’t know! It’s just I don’t quite feel complete without it! David Yates was the director and….wow, he did AMAZING! I’m not exaggerating when I say I think the movie changed the way I look at things. HA. So David Yates directed Order of the Phoenix and of course Half Blood Prince, but he is also directing the Deathly Hallows, which is being divided into TWO movies. Great for him for making that decision! I really love that movie, and I really have to see it again, it’s just a craving in the pit of my stomach now. He did leave some parts out but you have to do that in order to make a movie so I understand that, and he did a good job with what he had to leave out and what he had to keep. He even added a scene! He just slipped it in and I tit was really intriguing!( i don’t know if that’s the word I meant to say.) I do wish he had included this one chapter but it was great without it too. I really need to see it again!!!

sold-sign

My house is for sale, and we are really hoping someone will buy it. So we decided that everyday we are going to say something strong and powerful so our house will sell. We really want to start our new life soon, and some of us are starting to get anxious. So everyday when I wake up, eh….let’s think…….I think I’ll say “Today is the day!” Then I’ll include something about thank you, and I’ll go around my house and thank it for letting us live in it. I think that’ll work. In fact I’m EXTREMELY confident! Whoo!!! Go team!!

It’s July21, and it’s the morning. Quite frankly, I’m pretty tired. But I have a soccer camp that I have to go to this morning at 9:00. It’s fun so it is worth it! But like every morning I feel tense, my eyes feel kind of heavy and I keep yawning. BUT NO MATTER!!!!! It’s 8:27 so I should probably start getting ready to go. sun
