My Weekend

About a week ago I went to my wonderful daddy and asked him if we could try to find some old buildings. “Not like, the old kept up ones in Old Katy. Like, old abandoned buildings that are run down and have character.” I was happily surprised when he understood exactly what I meant. For anyone who doesn’t know, understanding me can be a very difficult thing, I have a jumbled thought pattern and my speech is even more so. My father is a very patient man when it comes to me. I am very easily distracted, on top of having trouble putting my thoughts into words I stop every few seconds to marvel over little things. You know, like the way the light hits the ring of water on the counter left by a cup. Anyway, moving on. He came back to me only a few days later telling me that he had already found a little place! I was very excited when he said he would like to take me on Saturday. My health hasn’t been the best the past couple of weeks and I haven’t been much of anywhere, I mostly do housework when I’m up to it and lots of reading and writing, but more research for writing than actual writing. It’s sort of how that goes I guess. Back on track, I was doing my best to feel up to going, and thankfully I did. He and I had a fun time exploring this tiny little abandoned house and the little woody yard. Afterward he took me to a park to get a few pictures, we didn’t stick around there very long though due to the lack of shading and my tendency to burn very quickly. After that we stopped by the local high school and I practiced some driving. And I learned how to parallel park. In under ten minutes! I think it’s needless to say I was pretty stinkin’ excited and proud of myself.
I also go to do some shopping with my lovely mama last night, we had a last hurrah at Pei Wei because, today I believe, we are starting the THM (Trim Healthy Mama) diet. I’m actually looking forward to this, aside from the no sugar aspect part of it. That will take a bit of adjustment. I also made, and hope to ship, a package for a friend today! I had loads of fun wrapping and packing goodies into a box. We have this little old post office in downtown Katy, it’s not ancient, but It’s not new either. Something about that place makes me happy. Maybe it’s the smell. I’m very excited to ship off the package, but the wait for it to reach it’s destination will probably be unbearable.
Speaking of packages, I’m expecting one! I won a giveaway about a month ago, a copy of “Cinder” and “Scarlet” autographed by Marissa Meyer herself! I’m pretty excited to get those in and will post pictures as soon as they do.
I apologize if I’ve gotten ramble-y in this, I haven’t had any sleep you see, and it’s 7:27AM. I’m quite exhausted mental, emotionally, and physically but I can’t sleep. That’s mostly why I’m here. I need to get this written and what better time? My way to make it through the day will be tea… I don’t know if that’s allowed on the diet. Oh dear. Alright. Lots of music. Happy cheery music. Yeah, that’ll work. I can totally do the no caffeine or sugar thing. I know I can. I should move onto pictures before this sinks in completely. You don’t want to be around for that. Trust me, you think you do, you think, “Oh it can’t be that bad! You’re just being dramatic, you can totally handle not having those.” I can’t. I’m not a strong person. I go into any and every diet like I do the newest Doctor. My heels dug firmly into the ground, my arms crosses and my head shaking while saying. “No. I don’t like this. I miss the old one.” It’s not a pretty sight. I should name things that make me happy. It’ll help. Let me think. Kittens, old books, GOOD books, rain, sunbeams, rainbows, old things, exploring, picture taking, when my hair dries in pretty curls and not messy ones, comfy clothes, converse sneakers with fancy dresses, kindred spirits, random “thinking of you” notes/texts, little kids (especially the ones that like me as much as I like them.), Irish accents (Love em’ over a British one any day. (Sorry Brits.)), Mickey and Minnie mouse, and notebooks!
What makes YOU happy?
