Tahoe for the day

My mom and I decided to go to Tahoe for the day.
We were the only ones that worked on the house and we worked really head the past two weeks. We have not had a day off. So because the house is now done we decided to go to reward our selves by spending a day in Tahoe shopping.
When we got there we stopped at a couple stores then went to our favorite place to eat, Applebees. After eating we stopped at a place were they were selling some really beautiful nature pictures. I bought 3 pictures for $20. They are of Tahoe as the sun is setting. They all have a really pretty purple color in all of them. I love them and in the future I want to buy one of them again but bigger, because it is so beautiful.
After that we went to a movie. We saw Ghost of Girl Friends Past. I loved it, it was really cute and funny. Then we walked around a couple more shops.
This summer my family and I are spending 4 days in Tahoe during the 4th of July. We are really looking forward to it because we have not gone on vacation in over 3 years. It should be fun because we will get to see some amazing fireworks and get to hangout as a family which we never get to do. The only thing I am worried about is that I am taking a class this summer and I hope I can skip one or two days so that I can be with my family.
My mom and I had a great time and I cannot wait tell this summer for our family vacation.

The House is done

Saturday my family had an Open House/Graduation Party for my sister that graduated from college. That house had to be completed from the remodel asap. So for the past two weeks my mom and I have been painting, moving around furniture, painting, planting flowers,painting, oh and did I say painting.
By the time Saturday came we were so tired. The house was not completely done but we hid it very well. The house looked so good. All our heard work paid off. Everyone loved it and could not believe how good it looked.
The only things that are left to be done are hanging pictures on the walls, and stuff like that.
The only thing that was bad was that my sister lives in Redding so she had no idea how much work we had to get done before her party. She was so ungrateful. She treated me like crap the whole day in front of all our family and friends. It was so rude and embarrassing. Next time she wants to have a party at the house I am not helping.
But the party was a success. I think 40 people came. And our out of town family came which was great because they never come and visit.
It feels good to have the house put back together again.

Horrible News

On Saturday I got some really bad news. I have two friends that are sister. I have known for 10 years. We know each other’s family very well. We use to spend almost every day together. And we do not hangout as much now but we still keep in touch and help each other when they need it.
Their parents are divorced; their mother lives in town here and there dad lives in San Diego. I have met their dad twice and the first time I net him he creped me out, and I did not know why.
A couple years ago their dad was accused of groping four women. He went to jail for a year.
So recently there has been a man in the San Diego and San Francisco area that has been attacking women. The man would sit on the side of the highway and pretend something was wrong with his car and he would try to get women driving alone to pull over to help him. Or he would flash his lights at women alone in their cars to try and get them to put over by telling them there was something wrong with their car. When the women were getting back into their cars he would attack them.
My friend’s dad has been accused because they found DNA evidence that he did this to the women. Many other women that had this happen to them managed to get away. In many police line ups and photographs he was positively identified.
I was so shocked and still am. One of the sisters has said that all the news and newspapers are not telling the truth about everything. This is hard to believe because every news report and newspaper has said the same things.
I wish they did not have to go through all of this again, and this time it is even worse. I wish I could do something to help my friends and make this all go away but I cannot. And I cannot even begin to imagine the pain they are going through.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Weekend in Redding

So my sister Alysha graduated from college on over the weekend. So my brother, his girlfriend, dad, mom, grandma, grandpa, and I went up to Redding for her graduation ceremony.
We left Friday morning. My brother and his girlfriend went in my parent’s car and my mom dad and I drive in my car with the three dogs.
My car is much smaller than my parent’s car and it has no air conditioner so it was a long 3 and ½ hour drive. My parents did not want my brother to drive my car because he drives all the cars really heard so we did’t want him to brake my fragile car when theirs is much stronger than mine.
All week my family and I were worried that I would not get to watch the graduation in person. There was a chance of rain and if it did rain I would not get to see her because she only had 6 tickets for the ceremony and I would not get one because she would give it to her old bible study teacher and one of her friends. I was not happy when she told me this. Luckily on Saturday there was not a cloud in the sky. It was so nice out only about 75 degrees.
On Friday and Saturday night we went to the Sundial Bridge. It is the only thing in Redding worth seeing. It is all lit up at night and you can walk all around it under it and there are really nice trains next to it. My family and I took some really cute pics there and the dogs loved it. I thing the dogs had more fun than we did.
The whole weekend was fun because it was a little vacation. My family and I have not been on a vacation in three years.

Kicked Out

This week I was kicked out of my house. No, I did not get in trouble or anything like that.
It was because of the remodel. Our wood floors were being stained. So I could not go in my room or the bathroom. My brother and I had to stay at our friend house while my parents slept in the moder home with the three dogs.
I stayed at my friend Adreanna’s house. It was fun because there were two other girls staying with her too. It was really fun because we all went to Jr high and high school together. It was great to be able to catch up.
I thought I was only going to have to be there for two nights and it turned out that I had to stay there Monday to Friday. When I got home on Friday I still could not walk on the floor so I had to go through the back year and clime over the wood pile and then climb into my bedroom window to get clothes. That night I had to sleep in the moder home with the dogs because my parents went out of town.
And to make things even more annoying, late on Friday night while I was climbing over the wood pile to get the dogs I had to hold on to the water heater to I would not fall. As I was taking my hand off of the water heat something sharp but my hand open. When I got back to the moder home and looked at my hand in the light it was cut really deep and bleeding.
The remodel is a hassle and causes a lot of problems but hopefully all of this will be worth it in the end.

So I almost got a tattoo the other day. This is a big step for me, because well I hate needles and I cannot make a big commitment like this. But now I am so excited to get one.
My brother got a tattoo and he paid for two hours and his only took an hour so we thought she would let me get one too. It would have been free for me. But she had to stay open after losing so I could not get mine
I had one pretty much picked out before I got there and then I was looking threw a book and found an even better one. It is a really pretty cross made of vines and with leaves on the line and in the middle the cross I want to put a lily flower. It may sound girly but I am a girl and it is so cute.
It is going to cost me 80 dollars so I think I am going to wait a little while. I just do not think I can pay that much right now on something so small. But I really like it and no one will expect me to get it so I am not telling most of my friends so I can surprise them.

So I have not had anything interesting happen at all this week, so I am just going to give you an update on some things.
My cat Aslan is still missing. The signs I put up around the neighborhood are still up. But no one has called. My friends mom recently had a family cat die and so she I trying to keep my spirits up. It’s not helping much. With every passing day it becomes more and more of a reality that she is never going to come home. And that means something very bad has happened to her.
Now on a lighter note, the remodel is going well. The kitchen only needs the new sink put in, then it will be fully done and functional. We have not had a stove or sink for about 2 weeks so its been oatmeal at toast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We are all sick of it. The new floors counters and back splash look amazing. The kitchen looks so much bigger than before. I love it.
Next we start on the wood floors. That is going to be an even more difficult process. I think we will have to move out for a couple days. The wood is going down the hall to the bed rooms so the only place we will be able to walk is in the kitchen and the dining room.
The end result will be amazing so I am not going to put pics up until it is all done. It will look so good. So stay tuned.
