Eyes Wide Shut

Since I have to wait for the whites to dry and I need to stick the jeans in to dry I decided to blog. Mario, Jaylen and Eenan are playing the games on the Chicken Little DVD so I’m bored. I guess I’ll summarize from where I left off on my previous blog.

We spruced up on Algebraic equations on Thursday, which I caught on to real quick. Everything’s been pretty easy so far; I just need to be taught once and I actually get it, thank God. We finished all our assignments early so Mrs. C-R. let us out at 11:30 instead of 12.

John and I went straight to the United Blood Services bus. (I was already thinking I was um, expecting, so John and I went to Wal-Mart that morning and picked up a preggers test to check and be sure. I wasn’t, so I was free to donate. I was kind of excited and nervous–in a way, I was relieved that I wasn’t since I’m barely getting out of school and want to look for a job and all. But, when it’s meant to happen, it will.)

My iron was good this time so they let me donate. It was John’s first time so they had to ask him the million questions they ask and then hooked him up. I didn’t even bruise this time, which is a big surprise. John didn’t bruise either, but he was delirious at one point. He even scared a girl we’d just met that day. Let’s just say he was singing along to “I Will Survive”.

We did ratios and proportions on Friday, which were easy as hell. We finished everything by 11a.m. so we had time to surf the net and talk. Some of us pitched in for pizza and then Mrs. C-R. sent us (Mayra, Lucy, John and I) to Domino’s to pick up the 5 pizzas. We made it there just fine, it was getting back that was tricky. I hate driving over there–there’s so many bridges and junk, and then there was this psycho old lady who almost ran me off the road and almost crashed into a trailer. She caused me to get into the left lane which was a “Left Only” lane and so I had to go all the way around to catch the expressway. Grr.

It was a great lunch. Mayra took her very awesome Cheesecake, Lucy took chips and dip (ooh I could go for some right now), I took cookies and then we had delicious pizza. We all talked about school and politics, a certain person and other stuff.

Mario, Jaylen and I picked Eenan up from school, then Mom from visiting Gramma and then went to JCPenny. We needed to get gifts for Jorgie and Justin, shirts for the boys for Jaylen’s birthday and Mario actually wanted to look for a few things. He found some Dockers dress pants he liked, a new belt and booties. He’s going to look so spiffy :).

The boys and I cleaned the bedroom up in the morning (after much yelling and threatening–the room’d been filthy for days) then I gave the boys showers and showered myself so we could leave. I needed to return two shirts I’d gotten at Ross: a pink one that made me look pregnant and a black/tan striped one. That one was way too long. I know that’s the style now, but it was just ridiculous. In their place I got:

That last one is the one I’ll be wearing tomorrow. It sort of matches the color of Mario’s shirt.

We went to Jorgie and Justin’s party after I shopped a little. It was at a park so I was dreading the heat, but it was such a nice, pleasant day. There was actually a breeze and shade. The boys had a blast, except for when this older boy started bullying the little one’s around. Other than that, it was a great party–Jorge and Maggie did a great job. The burger I had was deelish.

And well, that’s all that’s happened. Oh yeah, and Spike, one of Mario’s rats, died. And the other two started to eat him, which is an instinct rodents have. It was still horrible to see, though. Egh.

The clothes should be done now. I shall leave you with a picture of our newly-tinted truck:

I’m happy for you since the math is going better! It always makes me feel better when I know what’s going on in class. And props to you for donating blood! I don’t like needles…

I love the skull shirt because it has pretty flowers and butterflies šŸ˜€ and your car looks quite spiffy! All pretty and shiny. Good luck folding clothes! I know that’s my least favorite part šŸ˜›

Ohmigosh! John is AWESOME! Was he really crooning “I Will Survive”? That officially the greatest thing I’ve heard all week. Adorable pictures! šŸ™‚ I love, love, love the tops!

I’m happy to hear math is going well. It still gives me migraines, though. šŸ˜€

It’s so hard to keep updated these days…:) But it’s always so nice to read one of your new blogs and so I felt inspired to update today, too. šŸ˜€ With pictures. We rock. šŸ™‚ Take care, sweetie!

I’ve never liked Mathematics, I was always an English kinda gal because it came naturally. Sad thing is, I’m getting D’s and stuff, and my teacher expects me to get a B in the finals in a month. It’s so not fun, I keep forgetting how to deal with Pythagoras and Trigonometry. Blah, even thinking about it is terrifying.

Anywho, I’d love to donate blood and to do it on a regular basis. But I’d be scared, and I’m not sure what age you have to be to donate. Otherwise I’d apply for a card straight away.

That grey t-shirt with the three bears on is too cute! I’d probably wear it on my lazy days.

<3 to your car. It looks so shiny and new! I'd feel like a princess if I drove that. :D Love, Kal.
(P.S, I’ve had you bookmarked for about a year and a half. I check every day to see if you’ve blogged or not, this is one of the few times I’ve commented. :P)

Hey, I am glad that you are understaning Mathematics. I had such a difficult time with it, so when my students ask me for help my simple reply is, “That is why I am an English teacher. I do not understand math.” I have never been able to donate blood because of my weight, but I think that I would feel exactly the same way John does. Ha-ha! It must be nice to donate since it is for such a worthy cause. Your truck looks awesome! Take care!
