Holy Freaking CRAP!!!

I haven't posted in soooooooooooooooo long... it's not even funny.

Now.... what to say?

This summer isn't nearly as good as last one, on account of all the homework I've been doing. There's all the algebra, of course, plus Aerobics three times a week and swimming. I'm supposed to be swimming 1/2 an hour FIVE freaking days a week- like that's gonna happen.

Despite this, I've actually had a social life (well, ok, not really, but I have friends, and I talk with them (frequently, even!) so that's a social life, right?) so I've had, like, no time. And the time I do have I've spent devouring these books:

They're pretty good, actually. The typical fantasy stuff that I just can't get enough of, you know, but good (actually I've only read the 1st one, but I've got the other two and I'll start the 2nd tomorrow. :) :)

I'm also hoping to get into audiobooks this summer. Keeps you free to use your hands, ya know? Except.... what do you do with your hands? I could clean my room or something lame like that, but I'm 13, you might as well ask me to fly to Mars instead of clean my room.

Maybe I'll go back to Knifty Knitting. That's fun. But I don't really have enough yarn.... hmm.


HEY GUESS WHAT!!!! I got a new bedspread. Up until Saturday night, I had the pink and white Princess thing I got when I was 4. Except, I'm THIRTEEN, so I couldn't use that, so I grabbed this hospital green quilt out of the linen closet and slept under that all winter. Now it's summer, so I don't really need a bedspread of comforter or quilt of any kind, but the fact remains that I still had the pink and white Princess thing I got when I was, like, FOUR!!! So I nagged and nagged and nagged Mom about it, and eventually she took me to get this:
Shut up, it's cute and I like it. :)

BTW, who's read the Maze Runner by James Dashner?

Summer stuff.

So it's been exactly a year since I started this blog. I think that's kinda cool. I should probably do a giveaway or something, but I have better things to spend my money on, ya know? Besides, I don't have anything to give away.

It's summer again (HUZZAH!) but I still have to do my math homework, so that really SUCKS!!! but it's still good not to go to school. Jessica had this big bonfire/swim party and she invited, like, EVERYBODY, and we burned all our home work. I couldn't think of a good excuse to 'accidentally' bring my math book and 'accidentally' drop it in the fire, so I still have it. The food was good (I've decided I like turkey hot dogs) and the music was good (She was this big speaker and karaoke system) and I swam for about 3 1/2 hours, so it was a lot of fun!

Counting the swim party, I've swam about 5 times in the past week. I'm gonna have the worst swimmers ear by the end of the summer... but it's so worth it. I love swimming. Las Vegas is excellent for swimming in the summer, but it's SOOOO hot! And of course, Jessica and Kira and Loren (have I told you about Loren? She's awesome) are already all tan and everything... I swear, I'm not gonna be the whitest one at this year's young women's swim parties, even if it kills me. Of course, I have no chance of beating Kira or Loren, but Jessica I can beat (no offence to her).

The problem is, I can't tan. I can burn, no problem, but then I just go white again. Sheesh.

So Alison Wonderland and her daughter Goldilocks are here this week! That's really fun. We've been doing lots of reading and TV watching and perler-beading and all that fun stuff.... :)

And so now I'm totally out of thing to write, but Mom is standing there just waiting for me to finish so she can drag me off to do more math (Sheesh! Can't a girl catch a break?) so what else can I say?

We had a marathon clean of the counter-tops in the butler's pantry today. UGH! But it's really nice to be able to see the counters not pile 6 inches deep in papers and pens and scriptures and crap. And it was satisfying to get it all done. And now mom's gone, and I'm gonna go swim.
BYE BYE!!

This random metal couch the had over by the Navy Pier.... It was hard!

See? I really am a human being! (And I love those happy face earrings!)


One of the alpaca had a mohawk. SRSLY, it looked so funny!

A wildabeast scratching his butt. He looke like he's getting ready to charge an innocent bystander or something, but really he was just scratching his butt.

Me and my bestest Chicago buddy :)

That's all for now! See ya.....
