Good Afternoon

1:23 p.m. I've been waking up at 1 p.m. the past few days. Going to sleep between 4-5 a.m. It was interesting. Around 2 a.m. people were worrying because Mom hadn't been home and nobody could reach her or Grandpa on the phone. Her plane got off at 10 p.m. and she had to be at work by 6 a.m.

After I jumped in, calling numerous times, Mom called back just before 3 a.m. Joe told her how worried he was etc. and we knew then she was coming home. According to the Skype calls I made to April about it, she got home a half hour later. She slept, obviously until only 6 a.m. and then left for a full day at work.

By the time I went to bed at like 4 a.m. I learned Aaliyah, turning 7 in a few days, wet the bed. I had to get the blanket off after moving/waking her, clean and change her clothes, put a new blanket on, then attempt to sleep. Grandpa came in and tried to run off with the urine stained blanket, but instead I gave him my Marilyn Monroe one. It was a whole debacle before bed. Don't judge me or my family.

And so I slept, dreamt, woke up at 1 p.m. Had a shower, started laundry, cleaned the living room a tiny bit, and typed through Lili's rambunctiousness. Up until the internet died a minute ago, I was also talking to April about her need for storage. I love her but the woman is hard to keep satisfied.


She wanted shelves, needed shelves, begged for shelves. Got them, then went to being unhappier than BEFORE for storage such as jars and tubberware. There's nothing wrong with needing these things, she just has a constant history of not keeping satisfied. For a poor person like the rest of us, and I love her, she's pretty high maintenance. Oi...ah well. We all have our faults. I can't judge. It's 1:34 p.m. and I'm waiting for the internet to return.

1:42 p.m. It's back and everything is up. Does anyone realize this house is filled with kids in their 20's, two kids, a dog and only one guy older than us...and he's asleep? Ha ha.

3:43 p.m. Grandpa was Hospitalized. He tried to break up three of his pit bulls after two were fighting over the one in heat. Mom said he's not 20 anymore. Mom came back from the Hospital, did a lot of shopping while she was out of town and indeed visitied the Amish country.

I hope to be going with her to pick up my 14 year old cousin, Zack, later. Maybe take more photos and get some groceries done with 195 bucks in food stamps. Not all of it, of course, just like 20-30 dollars. Oh, what if I could get that giant bag of candy I spoke of. OOOOHHH. :O

I just need to get out. I've been editing the second chapter of the Dream Doctor and adding in a whole new scene, so that's fabulous. I've been waiting on the internet to work again just to write all this.

Earlier we were all in Mom's room. Mom, me, Joe, Jen, Harmony, the dog, and Shane (who I've seen more of than any member of the Mathis family, yet he was the last one I got to see after so many years) Mathis' and Smith are old family friends.:) We grew up together.

7:42 p.m. I'm at Mom's. We just got back from Wal-Mart---Mom just called me and asked if I had seen 'Magic Mike' and I was thinking it was some basketball movie so I said no. She said, 'well it's on in like 12 minutes...the one with Channing Tatum.' Then I knew. I immediately responded, scrunching my face, 'No.' When I closed the door I just shuddered at the thought of male strippers. call me crazy but it's not for me.

Anyway, at Wal-Mart, I got that 5 lb. bag of name brand candy I was dreaming about for weeks. IT was like 5 bucks then but now was 20...still. And I got hot chocolate with extra marshmallows, hot pockets, lunchables, and I think that's it.

Going even further back to after we left, we went to the gas station where I got a buffalo chicken burrito and ginger ale. I hadn't eaten anything but a slice of ham that afternoon so it was heavenly.

Then we went to Mom's friend's house, Johnny. It was a new BIG two story house with nice floors and an in ground pool. Clean neighborhood. We got a tour, sat and chatted, I was mostly left out of the conversation but still....then had pizza. The dogs outside chewed on a piece of carpet.We also picked up Zackary.

From there we went to Amscot, where Mom picked up some money I think. Then to Wal-Mart where Mom met up to talk with DJ and Zack looked at BB guns. I spent most of the time looking around on my own but I caught up with them after I checked out.

When we got home, stuff was unloaded. I helped Mom with her laundry and took mine out. Then came back and wrote some lines of the Dream Doctor while waiting for the internet to load. I was daydreaming about the new scene I wanted to add to chapter two. I'm really enjoying it.

Thank God for this day. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Hallelujah! God is Able! It's 7:52 p.m. in the evening, guys. Big day even for waking up so late.
8:02 p.m. Downloaded my Instagram Stuff. Need those pics!!! Zack said I take alot of photos...it's true.  I love capturing a moment in time...a little too much.

9:15 p.m. Played Neopets. Joe is cooking something for dinner...not sure what but his food always tastes good!

Oh! I forgot to mention I'm going home tomorrow morning. Mom and I agreed we should drop me off early in the morning, let her pick up her suitcase that's been there forever, and then she can pack at home before catching her Sunday flight.God Willing, Bless, and Thanks on High forever in Jesus Name! :)

1:15 a.m. Four hours later. I had fettucini for dinner, by Joe. Twas nom!. I watched Pirates of the Caribeean with the kids, then had a long running Marathon of Barbie's Dream House on Netflix up until some minutes ago. I also had a pack of lunchables. Mine and Mom's clothes are done, Aaliyah wanted me to sleep with her...can't say I don't want to try but there's a lot of stuff do before we have to leave in...whatever hours it is. I just know it has to be early.

I have to fold and inspect my clothes, inspect my stuff, and make sure EVERYTHING is together because typically, Mom seems to take only about 15 minutes and we're out the door. That time isn't enough to do everything I need to do. So end the updates. Good night, God Bless, Jesus Saves. Hope I can come home to a better working internet connection. It's been fun. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
