I'm so happy right now. Why, you ask? Well, there are several reasons...
1. I ATE A SANDWICH TODAY.
This is not so incredible in and of itself, but when considering the fact I had my wisdom teeth taken out on Monday, the simple consumption of bread and turkey is a marvelous, marvelous thing.
It wasn't easy, and it took me around twenty minutes, tearing it up, but still.
VICTORY IS MINE!!
You have no idea how sick of sweet mushy stuff a girl can get in three days. Most of my conversations with my mom went like this:
Me: "Mom, I'm hungry."I was craving real food so bad, but there wasn't anything I could do.
Mom: "Well, what do you want? We have ice cream, applesauce, and pudding."
Me: "Nooooooooooooo" *cry*
Until now. Bwahahaha.
I apologize for not writing sooner, but pain meds make you feel kind of floaty and sleepy, so I wasn't all here enough to post. I trust any of you who have had your wisdom teeth cut out sympathize.
And those of you who don't, well... your time will come. *Cue creepy music*
2. It's a Friday afternoon, and I'm still in my pajamas.
This is not so awe-inspiring either, except that it means my homeschool co-op was canceled today because of hazardous road conditions. You hear that?
Canceled~ *Hallelujah chorus*
I wasn't feeling up to going because of my teeth and all, but my mother insisted like the education-conscious woman she is. I don't hold it against her, but when it started to snow last night I could have sung besides the fact I couldn't open my mouth more than a half of an inch or move my jaw without pain. I fell into bed late last night and slept until 10 something this morning. Usually I hate sleeping in, but today it was pure bliss.
I feel much better today than I have since my surgery.
This is a good, good thing.
3. I read a book today.
You're probably wondering why I'm getting so excited over stupid things like this. But the truth is I'm busy. I would say incredibly busy, but when I think about what all my friends do, that comment dies in my throat.
Anyway. I'm relatively busy. Pretty much 100% of my time is spent doing school or freaking out about it. That's not a generous comment at all: ask my family. It's school, school, school. Always.
But not today! Since co-op was canceled, I got to stay home. And since I already completed my homework yesterday, I had nothing to do.
Which means I got to read a book today.
It's had to have been months since I got to sit down and just read a good novel. My parents know that if I have a book, I'll read it instead of doing school. So, in spite of my begrudging, they insist: No books on school days. And on non-school days, I'm too busy going places or doing school or freaking out about it or wasting time to read books.
So today, I read a book.
378 glorious pages.
*sigh of delight*
I forgot how much I love reading. I wish I had 48 hour days, like my friend Jacque, because I miss reading books.
It was refreshing.
Well, I need to go and get dressed (finally). We're celebrating my littlest brother's second birthday today, and we get to go to Chuck E Cheese. Where a kid can be a kid... what about a 16-year-old girl? Can she be a kid too? I wonder if they'll let me in the playplace, if I ask really nicely? Hmm....
Off to go and bug some employees,
