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.
