This week has been so long.

The beginning of the week was pretty good. Exams, school...blah blah. Wednesday, I came home from school, and I was yelled to my mom to come inside. The kitchen and bathroom were flooded with water. A pipe in the toilet burst, and it had gone all in the kitchen and leaked through the floor to the basement. Then later that night, my younger brother burned his arm on the heater. Long night...

The next day, I had school. Too bad it wasn't a two hour delay! My class did different skits for Bible class because each class in the high school does a class chapel, and ours is coming up. So we made up a skit, and watched other groups. That was fun! On my way to lunch, Pastor Matt, wanted to talk to me, and told me that my cousin (who is my age) had passed away that morning. It came as a surprise! I went through the rest of my school day, crying, and going to classes, and then I went to the McL for the night.

The next day, I had a basketball game. It was pretty good. Our team has improved a lot since we last played this team. It was an enjoyable game. They told me to be more aggressive, and my older brother, well he usually fouled out every game, so I got some of his energy and had 3 fouls. Two of which I had in the first 4 minutes of the game! That was a really late night. I went to be around midnight!

Saturday I had yet another game. So I went to that, and we won. It was a close game, but so far, we haven't lost. Neither have the JVB or VG. The VB lost once. But all our teams are doing pretty well. I called my mom to tell her what time I would be home, and she told me she was taking my younger brother to the ER, because he had a 104 fever. So, I went to my friends house, and then took me to the hospital after a while. He was so brave! He got an IV in his arm and everything! I told him that our dad would be very proud of him. This past week has been hard on our family, and I know that dad would be proud of him. He is a big trooper. We got home from the hospital around 11:45 p.m., and he is doing better!

Well, he is ready for me to be done... so I had better get going....

Never Regret Something that Made you Smile

... When my friend left for her out of country year. I made her a notebook with pictures of us (there are about 5 of us who are close, we all go to the same school, church,...) sayings, verses, funny things, letters... and then some was left for her to do while she was down there. Well yesterday, I got to see the notebook, and how much she had done (I made her a new one for Christmas!) and that saying was in there NEVER REGRET SOMETHING THAT MADE YOU SMILE! ...and a bunch of other ones (=

Today, I said goodbye to her. it was sad, but at the same time, not. I got to spend about two weeks with her. It was an amazing time, but I am glad that she is able to go back.

Sunday, we dropped James off. It is different now, but it hasn't really set in yet. I have got to talk to him on the phone, and that has been really nice. I miss him, but I am glad that he is back there.

Well, I had better get going...I might have a snow day tomorrow!!
