Getting off of work early makes me sooo happy!

Wouldn’t it be nice if every kiss was never ending?

I’m sitting here typing with Lizzy on my lap, she’s so very cute, but not housebroken. 🙁 And that doesn’t mean she peed in my lap.

Okay, last Friday I went shopping for Vanessa and Courtney’s birthday presents, then I hung out with Mike.

Saturday was my aunt’s 50th wedding anniversary party. It was weird, all these relatives that I knew I was somehow related to, but I had no idea who they were. I should at least know their names, but I didn’t. The last time I saw any of them was when I was 10, and they acted like we had just spent Easter together or something. After that, I picked my niece, Amber, up. She’s 15 and going to be a sophomore in high school. I feel like… I dunno. I felt like I should spend some time together with her, but now that she’s here, I wonder if it isn’t too late to try to influence her. I mean, she lives in a completely different world from me, and I am concerned that she’s going to follow the wrong path. Last semester at school she failed 2 classes, and I don’t want her to go the same way her mom went. After I picked her up, we went to Courtney’s birthday party. It got off to kind of a slow start, but it was great to see everyone again. I could tell Amber was really bored though, so we went to Mike’s house and watched a movie with his family, and she seemed to perk up a lot and have fun.

Sunday we went to church, then to Mike’s house to party! He threw an end of the summer party, and a lot of people showed up! I was having some issues that day, though. 😛

I have to get ready to go to the beach. 🙂

mood: good!
book: Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. I’m thinking of ditching it though, for a book Tyler reccomended to me, Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.
song: “Silver Shining” by Laruku.
