My Day

Well, today I woke up (I don't know what time) and got started on my school. I started my new curriculum today, so my work load wasn't that much, but I can definitely see that it's going to be quite a bit more than my last curriculum. Here are the books I am now reading in my new curriculum and what I read today in them:
  • Why Pray? pg. 26 (day one which is 5 pages)
  • Bible Study Sampler pg. 7, 9
  • Peace Child chap.1 (which is 10 big pages)
  • A history of US pg. 9-18 (chapters 1,2 and 3)
  • A Treasury of Poetry for Young People pg. 10-13 (it was just the introduction)
  • Exploring Creation with Physical Science (oh boy!) pg. 1-4 of Module 1

I know, my work load isn't as much as some people's, but if you're a girl who doesn't like to be told what to read and when to read it, it's quite a bit of work. :/

After finishing school I had to get ready to go to "work". I clean a lady's house every other Monday. I vacuum four bedrooms, living room, den, kitchen, entry, and one of the bathrooms. Then I clean all the bathroom sinks and tubs/showers with Comet. It takes about 1 hour and I get paid 30 dollars.

When I finished my job, Mom, Esara, Caldirwen and I went to that thrift store I mentioned in my last post. We L-O-V-E that place!!! I got 2 adorable skirts and an adorable jean jacket (I'll show you some pictures in a later post). Then I went shopping for a few things for my 200th Post Giveaway which will be coming in... 2 more posts. EEK! *covers mouth and giggles* I'm so excited!

After going to the thrift store we came home and I put away my clothing. Then I typed a letter to one of my pen pals. After printing out and sealing up the letter I got right to work on my chore (vacuuming the living room, school room and hallway).

After doing my chore I took pictures of the giveaway gifts. *giggles* And I'm NOT going to tell any of you what they are until my 200th post, so don't even try prying it out of me. LOL jk =D!

Then, by that time Narthea was home from work. Narthea and I were going to make dinner. We planned to make meatloaf earlier that morning, but we didn't thaw out enough meat, so I suggested spaghetti. Narthea did the noodles and I browned the turkey meat (we didn't have any hamburger meat). After that I set the table (plates, forks, napkins... and lots of 'em... and then hot pads for the hot pans). When the meat was done browning I added the spaghetti sauce and let it warm up. Then the noodles were done and Narthea drained the water. We added the noodles and meat together in a bowl and stuck a spoon in it. Then I made the garlic toast (yum!). After dinner was completely ready everyone say down and enjoyed the delicious meal (after blessing the food, of course).

Now I'm on the computer. :) Well, I hope you enjoyed reading about my normal, boring day. G'night online friends!

I'm so happy to know you're excited about tomorrow! :)

Yes, I did find some great things at the thrift store! I just love those places! I usually talk mom into taking me after I've earned some money (working, babysitting, etc.) and then I come out of there with tons of bags full of stuff! Mostly skirts and items for my hope chest, but today I was on a different mission. ;)
