I am tired, once again. I fell asleep talking to Brandy on the phone last night and then I decided to rest for a "few minutes" before going to bed... and I woke up at 5:00 this morning, fully dressed and with my light on. Oops. I got up, turned off the light, turned on the nightlight, changed into my night clothes and went to the bathroom and was still able to fall right back to sleep. I got up sometime after 8:00.
I went to church this morning. My pastor's wife had to be taken to the hospital in Chicago, and I don't know how she's doing--kinda worries me. A young guy and his wife and baby came to preach. I liked them. I know the girl's dad--he married a lady from our church after he and his first wife had been divorced for a while.
After church, I came home and started doing some work. Dad went to work. Mom and I cleaned around here some. I pulled some weeds out of the garden and Mom trimmed some trees. I also cleaned my room some and she tackled the kitchen and bath areas. I took a break, applied some Banana Boat tanning oil to my legs and sunbathed a while, while I was reading Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! by Fannie Flagg. I actually got a start on my leg tanning. Maybe my legs will catch up with my arms this summer ;)
I called Brandy tonight and got mad at her, mainly because I'm tired, but also because I miss Kris and she's not very tolerant of my relationship with him. I feel bad for losing my temper, but I just feel like I never get to do what I want to do. I'm on a short fuse lately anyway because of multiple stresses--worrying about Dad because he has been having heart problems, worrying about grad school crap (GRE, applications, financial aid, etc.) not understanding why I can't have a boyfriend and friends too.
But anyway, I guess I shouldn't waste time worrying about it.
My room is looking slightly better. I think I'll call work tomorrow and see if I need to go in in the morning. If not, then I'll see about a haircut. I need to be planning my week. It's so good to be on break. Peace out, friends...
