5 weeks is a long time. Luckily I had my Mom :)

Maybe, the reason I've been in such a bad mood this past - wow, it's been a week - is because I'm buckling down.
Vacation. is. over.
It was sooo much fun! All of it was, well just amazing. I felt like the character in a Jane Austen novel, traveling to foreign countries (England, and Italy!!), to her country, and exploring the wonders of the unknown. Through farms and farie-land, cathedrals and castles, markets and marquees. and my Mom was there, right there with me. :) I hope that I get to go back someday - seeing Pisa (I know!!!!!), and Florence (I know!!!), and all over England with Aunt Jenn and the kids, and sometimes Uncle Nat, was really fun. :) My favorite part of vacation was visiting the family, and our friends from Texas.
Pictures will be posted. How soon? Probably in a few weeks. Most likely just on facebook.
I had so many moments there, where I just thought "This is me, in (fill in the blank)." Sometimes it was London, at Charles Dickens home, or Stonehenge, or Bath, Westminster Abbey, or in the countryside, or Chatsworth house (PEMBERLY!), or in Florence, or by the leaning tower of Pisa, or walking down the streets of Florence back to my buddies apartment, on my own, just hangin' out. Then were moments that I won't forget too from the Bottrells, like the looks Lucy'd get when she needed to go to the bathroom - oh man. :D When she'd get glassy-eyed, we knew it was time to go into panic mode :D Oh, goodness.
I've got to go now, I'll write again soon.

I'm SMILING, see?

Life is good.
Last night my Dad and I went to the PESH - Marcus game! PESH got licked, but it was a good game! Kept me guessing 'til the end. I enjoyed watching a lady in sitting in front of my Dad and me almost as much as the game - her son played on the team, and when ever he made a good play, she would get up and do a little dance - so cute. :)
Later, I put on a few of my Ray Charles records, and tidied my room. It felt so good.
Life is good. That's what I've got to say.

Hey there Dear Reader,

Why is it, that every time I sit down to write a blog post, I start out with "yep, Imma slacker"? Not keeping this thing (this lovely thing that I absolutely love, as almost no one reads it, and I can express myself freely, without fear of being reproached) updated is totally okay. I just wish I hadn't let it go quite this far.
Anyway, no use whimpering over spilt molasses. LIFE IS GOOD! And I feel fine. Most of the time.
I haven't sat down and expressed myself like this, in... well, probably since the last time I wrote in here. I've lost my journal. It isn't good to let things simmer for too long, I've found.
The care-free mind-set of summer's past, and now school, and responsibility has set in. It's good to have moderation. I forgot all about... well, all troubles while Mom and I were on vacation. I've heard that said before - "I forgot all my troubles" - and I always thought it was corny. I totally understand now. We were so occupied with having a great time, that we didn't have room for unpleasant things. Not that responsibility is unpleasant, but the memory of neglected responsibility is.
Golly, I'm just feelin' really cruddy right now!
Things always look better in the morning, and besides, I am really blessed. I shouldn't complain. I'm too blessed for that. I'll say good-night now, and look towards tomorrow for a fresh start.
It's just one of those days.
p.s. AHHH! I did it again!! This whole complaining thing! Gosh, what a downer. I'll write something positive really soon.
