Buenos dias, amigos! I have no idea what Cinco de Mayo celebrates, but you all know me--I'm up for a party whenever I have the excuse! I have to go to work this afternoon, which is sort of a bummer--I'd rather go in the morning and have my afternoon and evening off. But at least this way I got to sleep in this morning. I've been very tired lately. Yesterday, I rode 4-wheelers with Brandy and took off down part of the National Road and along the edges of some fields and then in some open yard space at my grandma's farmhouse--it was pretty cool. I also had to pick up some laundry at the laundromat so I went in to town to see Grandma. She gave me some tomato plants and a couple of peppers. I planted them when I got home. I also talked to Kris a couple times on the computer. Then I went to Brandy's grandma's house to play some pool--yeah, I lost both times--but she fixed us some pizza, chips, pop, and raspberry pie. I love raspberry--probably my favorite fruit. I don't know how long I'll have to work this afternoon. I kind of hope not long though, because I'm really enjoying being on break and I want to make the most of it. Although, I guess to totally make the most of it, I'll need to make some money. And if I do take that trip to Mississippi, I'll need money and I'll also need to take several days off work. So I guess I better get some work in early.
I just got out of the shower. For some reason it seems like we run out of hot water when I'm in the shower. I don't know why. It sucks though. I need to start in on columns soon--my first summer DEN column is due on Mother's Day... which reminds me, I need to get my mommer a Mother's Day gift.
I'm probably going to be busy. Kris' sister and brother-in-law are having a housewarming in Danville on the 21st and I need to go to that, plus he thinks he's going to drag me up to karaoke there sometime. We'll see. Tomorrow I'm supposed to be going to Tuscola with Sarah, Brandy, maybe Rachel, perhaps Betty, and pretty much anybody else who cares to go. After that, I have to go to my cousin Daniel's EIU graduation party. Today I just need to focus on getting through work though.
