I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel the sky tumblin' down

I have gotten no emails all day. Very odd. Very not happy.

In other news, it's been a loooooong night.

Candace and I went to Kenosha for dinner (yay Fazoli's). Then stopped at a couple Targets to try and find animal crackers.

No such luck and we arrived at school at 8:45 to help with strike. 5 hours later...and I'm home. Most people left at midnight, but I stayed with Eric and Bridgette to carve the foam on the set.

I was dead tired at 6 when I went to go pick up Candace. And I'm still (and perhaps more) tired now.

Gail is going to bed now. Gail has to do 4 hours of physical labor planting trees tomorrow. Gail also needs to write and English paper and a One-Acts Theatre write-up. Gail is not happy about all this.

In our family portrait, we look pretty happy. We look pretty normal. Let's go back to that

Heh. So amazingly true...


I slept pretty well. Considering the near-20 hours I was up yesterday and how beyond exhausted I was at the end. Still, I woke up a half hour ago...and my alarm was set to go off at 11. Grrr...

At noon I have to go to school to plant trees by our "river" (the West fork of the North branch of the Chicago River) that runs through the back fields of the school...for AP Environmental Science. I'm not looking forward to four hours of planting trees...but we are required 6 hours of service PER QUARTER and first quarter ends at the end of October. I'm going to have to find another project thing to do before then. But dammit, I'm so fucking busy all the time.

Just had a bowl of the Honey Nut Cheerios I bought yesterday. :-D I picked them up before rehearsal...and while there, bought donuts for the cast. I'm so nice sometimes. ;-)

I'm feeling a bit better about somethings than I was before. I mean, I guess we are all busy people sometimes, and even if I'm home for 6 hours, alone and bored out of my mind...that doesn't mean that everyone else is just lounging around somewhere. I'm contemplating writing an email, but I think that's overkill and I'm still just sort of waiting.

Parents come home sometime today. Really not looking forward to it. I love when they are gone, and dislike it when they are here. They should be gone more often.

I need to write my English paper today. Most definitely.

They move so smooth but have no answers.


Planting trees for 4 hours sucked. A lot. But I basically stopped working after two, and we got let go a half-hour early.

So I'm home and showered, which is good because I was uber smelly.

Now, I'm really tired. But I have my English essay to write.

Oh. And the parents are home. Which automatically makes my mood plummet. And Cici is here with her kids. Which isn't bad...I mean, they aren't being loud or anything. But going from being alone in the house to having 5 other people is just. GRRRR!!! So basically, I call this my own personal hell. They should all go away.

I think I'll nap for a bit, before writing my essay. Rob was trying to make me go to Caitlin's for a party. I had almost decided that I would, and getting out of here would be nice. But I'm tired. And I don't know. If I leave, I won't want to come back.

One, two, three-four-five, everybody in car so come on let's ride

Taking a small break.

After my last post at 4, I promptly napped...for two hours. I was awoken at 6 for dinner (Chinese!! YUM!!!), and dessert (a small ice cream cake for my nephew...who's birthday was October 1st, but his party isn't until the 26th. This was the first time we saw him since he turned 9).

Then, at 6:40, I began work on the dreaded English essay. It's actually going really well. It's currently 1-page, single spaced and is about half done. It only needs to be 2-3 pages, double spaced, so I'm golden.

So yes. I've taken a small time-out from writing that to a) go to the bathroom, b) get some Cheerios, c) update and d) read my friend's page. With any luck, I'll be completely done and edited in the next hour!

Hello lamp post, whatcha knowin'? I've come to watch your flowers growin'

I've finished my English paper. Yay.

And I'm considering going to bed. Despite getting 7 and a half hours last night, and a 2 hour nap today...I'm pretty tired.

I guess I did do a lot of physical labor today. And the night before last, I only got about 5 hours of sleep...and the proceeded to stay up for 20 hours.

If I go to bed now though, I know I'll be up at 6am tomorrow.

But! I could theoretically get 10 hours of sleep!! Yum!

Plus, the computer screen is really bothering my eyes, so I have to find an alternative the a flashing box of doom.


Yeah, I don't know what I'd do that wouldn't involve a computer or television. ;-)

So I'm off. Perhaps I'll be back later. Perhaps not.
