Snow Day!

Yay! This has to be one of my favourite days of school – a snow day. I woke up and had breakfast, then went and had a shower. Once I got out and was heading back to my room, I heard the phone ring and I just shook my head. After all, the phone has been ringing constantly the past few days. Then I thought, “Wait, who would call at like 7:15 in the morning? Hey, maybe it’s Mr. G calling to cancel school!” I definitely liked that thought, and I liked it even better when I found out I was right.

On the one hand, this makes things much better. Bethany and Jordan were supposed to come home with me on the bus after school, which would have been hard since we were supposed to have Gym today and we would be over at Bethel. I wouldn’t want to take the bus from there since the North Park kids crowd the bus and everything. But if we went back to the school, we’d have to wait for the next bus since the 3:05 bus would have already gone by. At any rate, having a snow day definitely clears up that problem.

On the other hand, having a snow day doesn’t really make everything better. This is the day for visitation at the funeral home. I’m not sure if I’ll have to go to both now that I’m home here. I don’t really want to go to both since visitation tends to be on the boring side, where everyone just sits around and talks to each other. So having a snow day doesn’t really help if I can’t enjoy it. There’s no enjoyment in going to a funeral home on a day off school. It’s not my idea of excitement. Anyways, whatever. I have to do what I have to do.

My Uncle Bob will likely be showing up sometime today as he flies in from Victoria. Someone’s driving up to the Hamilton airport to get him, I’m just not sure who. Then he’s coming here and taking over my room. I think I have everything I need out of my room and down in the basement here now, but I still have to do something about a clock. I don’t have an extra alarm clock, and I need one with an alarm on it for school and stuff. My dad said he would give me a wind-up clock that he has, but I don’t like that one. It’s analog and I’m not even sure how you would go about setting the alarm. Actually, I’m not sure if it has one. But anyways. We’ll see how things go. Everything’s sort of up in the air right now undecided, and we’ll see where everything lands. All I can say is I can’t wait for Saturday, because that means that this whole funeral thing is behind me and I can keep going on with my life. It’ll help a lot.
