Take out
Wednesday. 8.22.07 3:55 pm
Apparently someone cashed out up at mom's work and tipped them $50. So, evenly split between the two people working, my mom got $25. She texted us {my sister and I} asking if we wanted take out for dinner and if the answer was yes, we had to make our decision before she got home. And the answers food, edible food, etc were not acceptable.

So ... we're having take out for dinner. My sister and I discussed it and decided that, depending on how much money was available to spend {since ma hadn't told us our limit yet}, we'd either go with Ruby Tuesday {which I still haven't had} or KFC. When ma got home from work, I told her our decision, she told us the limit and we're going with KFC.

With 5 people living in this house, when it comes to take out or eating out, it takes a little bit of time for everyone to decide and agree on where to go and what to eat. There have been times {before I moved back in} where my mom ended up going to 3 different fast food places because no one could agree on what they wanted. My mom doesn't mind as long as its within a reasonable driving distance. Nothing too far out of the way.

Anywho, mom is off work tomorrow so the car will be available. I'm not sure yet what we're going to do. It'll be the last time we'll be able to do anything that involves staying out late because my mom has to work this weekend and my sister starts school on Monday. I mean, sure, I'll be able to go out and stay out till whenever I want once I get a working schedule and my own car, but who knows when that'll happen. And my sister will be able to go out and stay out later on weekends because she's got her boyfriend. But for the three of us {myself, mom and my sister} to go out, this is the last chance we'll have until the next break in school.

Uhm, I'm not sure if I mentioned this on here or not so if I did, I'm saying it again. I have mentioned that I was planning on going back to Tucson for about a week in the beginning of October so that I could go drinking with the people who wanted to take me drinking and also so that I could hang with some of my friends who were still underage. I'm not going to be making that trip until March. I won't have the money by the beginning of October and I also don't think it wise for me to be driving across the state alone with only having had my license for a mere 3 weeks. So now the plan is for me to take a week off in March and go out there during their Spring Break. This way I'll have had plenty of time to plan and save up money and also I won't have to worry about school interfering with spending time with anyone.

Ugh! I don't want to have to wait until August '08 for Breaking Dawn {book 4 of the Twilight series} to come out, but according to the web site, it won't be out any sooner. It also seems to be going with the pattern of one book out each year, with New Moon and Eclipse coming out in August '06 and August '07, respectively.

Anywho, this seems to be a longer entry than planned, but I guess I had a lot to say. I can't think of anything else worthwhile to write about right now so I shall end this entry here.

Here, Jon. Here is my "update."

Yesterday I actually got up before 10am. I took a shower and did some dishes. Then I got on the comp for a little bit while my sister did some cleaning.

After a little bit, I made some phone calls to the places that I applied at. Only one was somewhat promising and even then its not a definate. Other places flat out told me if they were interested in hiring me, they'd call me. It was quite rude. So I put stars by those places so I would know not to call them again.

Around 1ish, Tony came over to pick up Lori. I went out with them because I needed to go to Target to return a couple shirts I had bought. I bought them without the time to try them on, otherwise I wouldn't have bought them. I ended up going with them to PetCo afterwards because Tony needed a heat lamp for his new snake.

Before we went anywhere, though, we stopped by Tony's place so that he could get his snake. His sister sold her to him, including the tank, the mice, and some other stuff for only $200. The snake is a 2 yr old 4ft long ball python. She looks a little shabby right now because she's molting, but when she's done, she'll look beautiful. Her name is Cilohocla, which is actually alcoholic spelled backwards. I think its kinda funny.

The only person in Tony's family that knows about the snake {besides his sister} is his dad. No one else in the house knows about it. Unfortunately, while at Target, we ran into Tony's grandmother. Tony had Cilohocla around his neck. So what Lori and Tony did was tell her that the snake was mine so she wouldn't get suspicious. It apparently worked.

I got munchie food. Before we came home yesterday we stopped by mom's work so that we could say hi and get something to drink. I gave mom $20 so that she could get me more water and some munchie food. So I now have Hershey's Assorted Miniatures and Reese's and Kit-Kat miniatures. Tasty stuff.

Anywho, I haven't done anything today. I didn't get up as early, but I was still up before noon. The AGT 2 hour season finale is on tonight. They're going to be announcing who won the million dollars. There are two people that I want to win, the other two, not so much. One of the people in the top 4, in my opinion, shouldn't have even made it through to the top 10, but hey, I can't control who the rest of America votes for. I can only decide who I want to vote for.

Uhm, this hasn't been one of my most organized entires, but it'll have to do. I'm not going to rewrite it. And with that, I'm done. Till next time.

I'm feeling better today. My neck still hurts a little when I turn it too far, but I'm otherwise alright. Sleeping on a couch still doesn't help, but whatever. There's nothing I can do about it right now.

I think tomorrow I'm going to go down to the Smart & Final that just opened up and apply there. I'm sure they're hiring. Its like a small Costco. I wonder if they'll hire me. I hope they'll hire me.

I'm out of munchie type food again. And I don't have the money to just go out and buy more. Ugh.

Uhm ... I have absolutely no idea what else to say. I shall write again whenever.

Still sore
Saturday. 8.18.07 6:34 pm
It appears that I'm feeling the pain of the accident more today than I did yesterday. My sister is feeling fine, my mom is feeling fine. Me? Not so much.

My neck is really sore. I can't turn it either way past a certain point without it hurting. I'm sure I wouldn't hurt as bad if I wasn't sleeping on a frickin couch. The tendons on either side of my neck feel strained. Oh well. This is what I asked for. I said I'd rather it be myself hurt rather than my mom or sister.

Anywho, I talked to a friend last night that I realized I haven't talked to since December. For some reason it doesn't feel like its been that long. Oh well. We talked for a while last night. I told him about the accident because I was on the phone with him when it happened. We talked about how boring life has been. I managed to convince him to come out to Vegas for his birthday, but I have to take him out drinking. Should be fun. *note the sarcasm*

Ugh, I don't know what else to say so I'll write again whenever.

Car accident
Friday. 8.17.07 3:05 pm
Today started out really well. We were all up at a reasonably early time and were out of the house before 11. The plan for today was to get mom's check, deposit it into the bank, pay the bills, go to lunch and go school shopping for my sister. We got as far as paying 2 of the 4 bills.

As we were driving down the road, a woman was coming out of her complex and obviously didn't see us because she tried to pull across into our lane. Mom honked the horn at her and she moved back into her lane till we were passed. About 2 or 300 feet later there was a 4-way stop. We were stopped at the intersection and this same woman rams into us. Hard.

Even though we were stopped, she hit us so hard it pushed us 16 feet forward. Its a good thing we were completely stopped, otherwise it would have pushed us clear to the other side of the intersection. Its also a good thing it wasn't a major intersection and that we weren't all the way into the middle of it.

My mom is suffering from a pretty severe headache and at first, she would get dizzy whenever she stood. She seems to be doing better now, though. My sister was terribly shaken; so much so that the whole car was shaking with her. She was complaining of back pain. She seems fine now; she said all she had to do was crack her back. I seemed to have suffered the least, but I've still got a headache and my jaw is sore. The way my mind works, I've programed it over the last 10 or so years to block out any pain I might feel. If its not terribly serious, I don't acknowledge it.

We're all going to wait it out 24 hours to make sure nothing worsens. If it does, we'll be taking a trip down to UMC Quick Care {its better than the hospital} My sister and I are most concerned about mom, but she's more concerned about us than herself. I guess its a mother thing.

The car is still drivable, but the whole back right side is crunched in. Luckily the other person's insurance is going to be paying for all the damage. In the process, the brakes will be fixed as well as the bent axle. Who knows when we'll be able to get the car fixed though. In this town, it could take forever.

I still want to go out and finish off the day, but I can be patient enough to wait until we're sure mom can go out again. I just wonder when that'll be.

Today is the two year anniversary of my stepfather's death. Its not been too much of an emotional day, but I don't know how my mom has been coping when she's in her room by herself. I hope its not too bad for her.

I went to the DMV today and remembered all of the necessary documents {I forgot my birth cerfiticate last week} I took my written test and I'm scheduled to take my road test on Sept. 20th.

We stopped at the grocery store on our way home and I drove home from the store. Its the first time I've driven in about 3 years. I much prefer driving this car compared to the minivan that we had last time I was driving. However, the brakes on it are horrible. They stop the car, but they squeak and squeal. I'm going to have to borrow my mom's friend's car when I take the road test cuz my mom's car is not in good enough working condition to take the road test in. There are still a few things I need to work on, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to pass my road test. The only thing that I'll have trouble with is parallel parking.

When I took driver's ed in Florida, the instructor told us if we wanted to learn how to parallel park, we could, but we didn't have to learn. It wouldn't be a part of the road test. But here, parallel parking is much more common so it's a part of the road test. I've never even considered it so that might be an issue with me whilst taking the road test. Oh well.

Anywho, I don't really know what else to say right now, so I'll write again whenever.
