Well, another Christmas has come and gone. And a new year has started, as well! But who would even notice that, unless they happened to glance at the brightly colored, chalk-drawn 2010 in the middles of the cul-de-sac. Yes, the new year is exactly like the old one, or at least, so far at is. But no disappointment there. 2009 was no different from 2008, either. Or was it?
Well, Homer and Trapper, the cat and dog, certainly didn't change, or at least, not in any way I can tell. Homer's still afraid of everything, and Trapper is still an annoying (yes, she's very annoying, especially at night when her shriek-like meow wakes everybody up), if still a darling, cat. But hey, animals don't change the year. Not usually, anyway.
I got my ears pierced, but that was in January. Just the beginning. Anyway, it didn't make much difference. Life still went on normally, right?
Rebecca and Izzy, two of my sisters, were gone most of the summer. That made things a bit dreary. Who couldn't miss two of the most cheerful, fun souls in the house?
Well, it would take forever to tell every single thing that changed 2009 from 2008, and anyway, those years are long gone. I'll tell you a little more about the life I carry around on my back. Not that it's heavy, I'm not complaining! My life is waaaaaaaaaaay easier than most.
Yesterday, Saturday, I got home from my grandma and grandpa's house, at six thirty in the morning. I was because my cousin Cathy Rubano was there, and, as she lives in Florida and I don't often see her, I wanted to set a couple of memories up for me to recall someday when I'm an grandparent myself and want to tell my grandkids some interesting stories.
My madre (mom, for those who don't know Spanish, not that I do) took me out to Fort Worth at about noon on Thursday. Fort Worth is where my grandparents live. It took about an hour to get there. When we did get there, Cathy was waiting. She gave me a Christmas present, how sweet of her! A fifteen dollar gift card to Target and a month long Club Penguin membership.
Club Penguin, for those who don't know already, is a computer game created by Disney. A member can buy stuff.
We also watched Sky High, one of my favorite movies. Whoever has seen it... isn't it GREAT? Well, maybe not to you, but to me, it is amazingly funny.
On Friday we went to Target to spend money, my favorite way to waste time. Not really, but it's in the top twenty. I bought two stuffed animals.
Saturday... a day of work. That's what it was for me on the second day of January. I cleaned my room from top to bottom. My mom and I had just gone out to buy a hammock for all of my millions (actually only seventy went in the hammock) of stuffed animals because they took up too much room. SO, of course, I had to clean out the room and choose the stuffed animals which would go in the hammock. Not only that, but under my mattress was a MESS, and so I cleaned that out too. I must admit, it is nice to have a neat, bump-less bed to sleep in, and it was rewarding to see how neat I can make things if I want to.
Then, today, I had to clean MORE, because my room magically got messy overnight, and my mom thought Mary Margaret, my other sister, would like it. I also cleaned off my cluttered dresser. Now, it actually looks really nice. I am pleased with my work, even though it took me all day. Well, I played my my best friend, Rose Dougherty, from four till six thirty, but still...
Well, I don't want to bore you quite yet, and if I have, you don't HAVE to read my blog! So, have a good year, and talk soon!
