This past weekend was pretty great. Not for any particular reason but because I got everything I wanted to do accomplished and still had enough time for fun and relaxation. I made jewelry, listened to an entire audiobook (it was only a little over 4 hours long, The Giver, but it was still impressive in my opinion), finished The Storyteller audiobook (one of my favorite books now), did laundry, hung out with the kiddo, took the dog for a walk both Saturday and Sunday, visited a great friend I haven't seen in too long, worked out on Saturday, cleaned my car inside and out, and other little things (like dishes). Though I was exhausted, I felt really content last night. There are so many times that I feel like I've wasted days away, and this was not one of those times.
There was something specific I wanted to write a blog about but I currently have no recollection of what that was. I just remember thinking "I should write a post about that". I'm sure it'll come to me eventually.
So on to the journal entry...
Diary, I was pretty mad last night ********(more info about that crush I wrote about in the last entry)
I chickened out yesterday night and just fell asleep! I guess it's just easier said than done!
I wrote a letter to Mad About You last night, to keep me busy. I sure hope they write back. I collect autographs. So far I have Tim Allen (Best), Jim Carrey, Cathy Ireland & The Cast of Home Improvement (other best).
I have my door open right now, because my brother isn't home, neither are my parents.
I'm supposed to do something with Rose today but shes not home!
Lately I've been thinking of ideas for inventions: A calculator, time, atlas, TV watch! I wish it was already invented, I would have one!!!
I left a message on Rose's machine so she should (hopefully) call back.
I actually enjoy painting my nails, so I'm going to go and do them now!
I guess my iPhone would have made my 1996 self pretty darn happy. I've always loved technology....but I'm glad I wrote about the tree house in this journal because I've also always loved nature and being outdoors.
I did end up getting that Mad About You cast of autographs. I think all of them are still in a folder somewhere in my current house (my husband being in the Air Force, I've moved quite a few times since then, so it's saying something that I still have that random childhood collection).
Obviously, I had an issue with being honest to myself about things like wanted to paint my nails. I didn't want random future people (all of you who might be reading this today, I guess), thinking that my 13-year-old self was so girly and vain.
My last thought on this one...what I wouldn't give to have time to write a letter to a TV Show requesting an autograph just to pass my time.....jeesh....I was telling my husband earlier that I wish someone would invent a way for human adults to live (with no health side effects) with only about 4 hours of sleep a day. I'd LOVE to have a few extra hours of awake and alert time a day (and not have to take caffeine pills to accomplish this, or feel like death the next day).
