Yesterday was a blast. That’s really the best word to describe it. It was amazingly fun, because, well, Wonderland is always fun. It’s a freakin’ amusement park, for goodness sakes. The entire day was really just awesome – even after our feet were long tired and the heat was causing hallucinations of giant fluffy chipmunks. Well, okay, that didn’t happen, but it could have.

The first thing to say about the day is how amazingly hot it was. I mean, if we had brought some eggs, we could have cracked them open, cooked them on the pavement, and had some nice fried eggs. I went through three bottles of water and a large pop during the day, and when we got back, I was still thirsty enough to drink from my church’s water fountain. It really was just horribly hot. At first I was disappointed that we weren’t going to stay until the park closed, but by the time we had to leave, I was ready to. That’s not to say I didn’t have fun, but it was just so hot and humid that I was ready to pass out in the shade just to get a nice nap.

Anyways, in the morning, we all met at the church. I had told my parents the night before that Jordan, Melissa, and Angie needed a ride there, and they didn’t like that very much, but they still did it. We picked them all up and then drove to the church. There…Continue Reading

Weed-Eaters, Roller Coasters, and Purple Penguins

“It’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood.” That’s the opening line of the theme song from my absolute favourite show – Mr. Roger’s Neighbourhood.

I was up this morning early once again so I could get out the weed-eater and trim the grass. That’s the last time I get up early for a while, that’s for sure. It’s not too bad, though, since I get to put headphones on and listen to music while I do it.

After doing both front and back lawns, I was pooped. I had a nice shower, and since then I’ve done approximately zero minutes of work. Well, I guess I did walk some – for lunch, I couldn’t find anything good in the fridge, so I walked over to Mario’s Pizza and got some pizza. But that’s about it. I guess I’m going to have to be up early tomorrow as well, though, since it’s Kristy’s birthday party. We’re going to her dad’s boat down somewhere around Long Point and hanging out there for the day. I’m not really looking forward to the whole water thing, since as I’ve mentioned numerous times before, I have an allergic reaction whenever I touch water – or something like that, anyways. I can’t swim, and I don’t want to learn, because I don’t like it…Continue Reading
