morning sunshine :-)

Hello out there… anyone readin’ yet? Heh, didn’t think so. Oh well, ‘sall good. So yesterday was sort of a lame Saturday I guess, but I had fun all the same. I just sort of hung out and did some chores and spent way too much time on this thing. Then, just as I was trying to figure out waht I was going to do with my evening, Jenn note the two n’s because she is just that cool) texted me to see if I wanted to go to the mall. My options were either that or going to the Cracker Barrel with my aunt who had my two little cousins with her for the night (not her kids- she doesn’t have kids… things always get confusing when I discuss my family, because there’s a lot of them and we’re all really close).

I was actually a little bit torn, because I adore Matt and Alyssa (and I don’t even like most kids very much) and feel bad that I don’t get to spend more time with them, but I also want to spend more time with Jenn, because she’s going trough a lot of shit right now and doesn’t have a lot of friends around here to confide in. Anyway, I opted to go with Jenn. We went to Meriden Square. She bought some jeans and I bought one of those autofresh things from Bath and Body Works for my car, Stella. It’s the Fresh Linen scent and it’s wonderful.

We got back sort of early. It was only a little after 7 and I was back home sitting around. Mom and Dad came home from a wake they had to go to and mom took me out to dinner. We went to Panera. I love Panera. I had the Turkey Bravo sandwhich witha diet coke and she had some sort of lemon poppy dessert thingy with a chai, because she already had dinner. Anyway, Panera was excellent as always and I had some bonding time with my mommy.

Then I ended up visiting my aunt and my cousins anyway. It was fun. They were snackinga dn watching a movie. My mom needed Alyssa to try on a coat she had gotten her for Easter and my mom had to pick up some Avon stuff that their mom had left with my Aunt. Also, Aunt Annie picked up some gloves for me that she knew I wanted that she found at Nordstrom’s.

Today is more mother-daughter bonding at the mall, some lunch, and then the usually Sunday night dinner with the family. Good times, good times.

Empowerment.

I am getting so ridiculously excited about this whole book club idea. I think this will be very good for me. It will probably even help me to feel that my life is not so lacking. I need a sort of social activity that can give me some feeling of purpose. I already have so many ideas for it. I really hope it all comes to fruition– so many of my bright ideas don’t. The three of us all seem to be really into the idea though, and I’ve always felt that if one wants something badly enough and isn’t afraid to work for it, it will happen. I think Jenn and Laura are both of similar mindsets, so this could really work very well for us…
