One Lazy Dog
Yes, I have a VERY lazy dog. She alternates between the couch, her dog bed, her kennel, below my computer desk or Mom's, under various cabinets and tables, and lying on the plain old floor. How can dogs sleep SO much?
Today I did schoolwork all day and got quite a lot done. I also finished the second Diary of a Teenage Girl book which is good because now I can focus on getting Uncle Tom's Cabin done for my history class. The book discussion is next week and I'm only on chapter 9 of 30+ chapters! Yikes!!
Today I leaned a valued lesson in self control. My best friend called me the exciting news that they're were Breyer horses (a type of play horse models) at the thrift store! Naturally I wanted to head right over to check them out but Mom reminded me that my passion isn't horses, it's dolls. Although I still wanted to go and just look at them, as a family we decided it would be too great a temptation for me; I would no doubt want to buy them. So, we stayed home and instead Dad and I played our new Star Trek board game. This time, instead of being the Federation, I am playing the Klingons. Our game isn't quite finished yet, I will let you know tomorrow night who came out victorious.
P.S. Five days until my braces are off! =D Just in time for Halloween to...
