Long Day...

I woke up at 5 am. Sat at the computer and drank my coffee, then I walked outside and got the newspaper, read the comics - woke up my Mom and then she took me to swim team. We swam from 6:30 - 9, and then did weights for half a hour. After practice Mom picked me up and I came home and ate. I then got ready for my ortho appointment at 11:40, which was both positive and negative. I have TMJ – it’s a jaw thing, I’m not going to explain it, but basically my jaw does a lot of popping and sometimes it’s very painful. I had a lot of x-rays done, and I’m schedule to go back for a consultation soon. I’m excited to get it fixed, but it’s probably going to be very expensive – so I guess we’ll just see what happens. Anyway I was there getting my x-rays done till 2:30, my Mom picked me up – then I picked my swim team and work stuff up – and she dropped me off at Rivi. Technically I was supposed to work from 3 – 8, but today was a very rainy, overcast day – so they didn’t need me at 3. I went to swim team, 3 – 4:30 and then Terry said I could work from 5 – 8. Not a very long shift, but at least I got some hours. From 7 – 8 I sat on the island, there were basically these two guys swimming laps for-ev-er! Anyway that was one of the longest hours in my life. Mom picked me up, I ate here at home and now I’m updating.

I love being busy, though I really think my busyness would be a lot easier for my mom if I could drive – I should make an appeal to the president, probably more likely the governor that home-schooled children should be allowed to get their licenses when they turn 15, but of course the parents would have the choice to allow their children to, or not to….. Another dream unfulfilled. *sigh* oh well.

I think I’ve started rambling, which for me that probably is a bad thing. So I'll be done - I luv and miss all of you!

*sigh* nobody's commenting... where are you people? I comment on all your blogs, but what about returning the favor? You could at least say "hi". Luv you all -

Hi Ellie. I love you!!
I like that quote. There's one by C.S. Lewis that I really like and that has nothing to do with the one you posted is: "Safe? Who said anything about safe? Ofcourse he isn't safe. but he's good!"

:D Love you!!

I hope your TMJ can be fixed without giving you too much pain! I'm glad you have a chance to be busy. I've had pretty much nothing to do today. I was sooo tired from Covie that I didn't go to corn detasseling. My siblings still aren't back from I guess it's my own fault. Oh well, I'll just be a poor gal this summer.

Yeah, we do need to get together. I need to tell you about you!

Eleanor!!! I'm sorry I feel like I hardly ever read people's blogs any more... like I barely have enough time to write on my own! Plus my dad's computer is really slow.
well we'll have to get together soon!!
