Hi! Today is the last day I'm going to be eighteen! I'll only be a teenager for one more year... it's sort of freaky! I received a gift in the mail and I promised my mom I would not open it until my birthday tomorrow! I'm a master at guessing gifts so I tried not to even look at the pretty box when I hid it from myself in the closet.
Classes are great this week! I did a good job on my test in Health and Fitness and I'm really enjoying my Art Appreciation and History classes. Oh, this was embarrassing! On Monday, I missed my math class because I didn't wake up to my alarm clock! I have issues when it comes to getting up early. I may need to put the alarm clock on my desk across the room so I'm forced to get up in the morning!
Yesterday, I finally got to go shopping at Walmart! Thank the Lord because I was out of Shampoo and the drain in our shower needed some Liquid Plummer... like PRONTO!! On our way back to Judson, Gussie managed to miss hitting a raccoon but she totally drilled a frog hopping across the road! It was sad but very funny!
There was a humongous thunder storm last night complete with high winds and lighting! It is slightly unnerving how fast the weather changes over here in Alabama. Oh! On Sunday, Gussie and I finally got a pet!! We had wanted one for a long time and after careful consideration we decided to get a turtle! "Sheldon" is adorable and I think he likes his new home:) Talk to you later!
