Hi world! (Again)
This is Hedwig. (Again)But for a change, I’m gonna (I know, I know, gonna’s not a word…) tell you ALL about my spring break. PROF. MCG MADE ME! On the first day of break- Geez, this was a while ago- it was Friday and I just hung out in my house, happy that it was break. OH! How about I write it like this!
Friday- Lazed around the house, occasionally getting up to go to the bathroom or something like that. Well, I actually went outside for an hour and played with my neighbors…
Saturday- I can honestly say that I don’t remember anything I did-OH! I had my friend came over on…Friday! (Sorry, forgot to mention that) We had a sleepover! She brought her laptop over and we stayed up until 3:00 am (So, we were up until Saturday) But that was a bad idea, because in the morning, at like 9:00, (am, of course) we had to take my brother to his soccer game, ugh! We were pretty tired. (That’s what 6 hours of sleep does to you) Then we went to the Antique Mall, cool place! We didn’t get anything, but liked it anyway. We then went on a walk down to a beautiful beach. I spotted two snakes, cool! We went geocaching (read this blog to hear all about that-GEOCACHING!) but, alas, we found but nothing. Finally, we headed home to eat snacks and play on the laptop, (YouTube, Paint, Webkinz...etc.) what a fun day!
Sunday-My friend went home that morning, because my grandparents came up! They’re my mom’s parents. My grandma taught me how to crochet and brought me some clothes that her friend’s granddaughter had grown out of. Then, we went to a small island! (Prof. McG.’s orders: I don’t tell you WHAT island…) We drove all around it! (Well, all of the places that we could, anyway.) We drove to the ferry terminal and there we played on a beach. The beach was right next to the ferry terminal, so we could walk down easily after we parked. The ferry ride was short, less than 20 minutes. We drove for a while on the island, looking for beaches that WEREN’T private. We finally found one that was the property of a small white church. Ya know what? I think you aren’t even reading this! So, I’m going to try out a trick from the book, Trial By Journal. I’m gonna BLAH BLAH BLAH in the middle of some random sentence. Back to the church beach. There was a long fleet of stairs that led us down to the beach. (Ugh, walking up was no fun!) There my mom and grandma found some seashells that smelled like, pinch your nose, poo! EWW! I found a rock there that I cracked into three pieces. I’ll try to post a picture of BLAH BLAH BLAH them. It was all sparkly on the inside. Sparkly and a light creamy orange, that would describe it. When we left, my hands smell like…the poo shell. BLECH! We passed some llamas on the way back, that was cool! We ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant, (Again, Prof. McG.’s orders: I don’t tell you WHAT restaurant…) except my brothers kept messing around. Sigh. That was a LLLOOONNNGGG, (Yet FUN!) day!
Monday- On Monday, I went to two parks! One was…oh yeah, not supposed to tell you. At that park we played with bubbles and a Frisbee there. We also sat and watched the waves crash against the rock, but most just played Frisbee. (And watched out for geese poo.) I saw an otter! Cool, huh? We had a small snack and then headed to the second park. (Which I’m SO sorry I can’t remember!) My mom stopped at a place where they BLAH BLAH BLAH sell bagels. She got one of each type. They were for tomorrow!
Tuesday- Tuesday was a stay-home day. (Mostly.) At the beginning of the day, I played on webkinz and messed around on the computer. Then I felt an urge to earn some money. I asked my mom for some ideas. She said I could put away all of the laundry for $10. But, I also had to sort and fold it. Even my BROTHERS! It was a dull process. I put on some music and tried to cheer up. My mom interrupted me in the middle of my process. She said she needed to run to the store to buy some things and asked if I wanted to come. Of course I did! We had fun and I persuaded her to get a placemat with all of the presidents on it! When I got back, I had to finished that load of laundry. I said I’d do another load of laundry for an extra two dollars. She said yes. So, I had earned some more money! That was Tuesday!
Wednesday-Wednesday was another LLLOOONNNGGG day. We went on a SIX MILE (and a half) HIKE! I know, amazing, right? We walked right up close to a lake. (Again, Prof. McG.’s orders: I don’t tell you WHAT lake…) It was beautiful! The hike absolutely KILLED my legs. But the scenery made it all worth it. There were baby butterflies fluttering around in the sunny spots. They were the first of many, I suppose. There were some cascades and even a waterfall! The waterfall was amazing! It sparkled in the sun. We stopped at 2 ½ miles and had lunch…the bagels! The thing that stinks is that It’s not like it was a loop, where it’s easy to loop all the way around, it just makes an abrupt stop 3 ¼ miles through. So we had turn back. We hiked ALL THE WAY BACK! At least it wasn’t serious hiking, like at an upwards angle the whole way. Nah, it was flat. At the end, we stopped at the 1 mile marker. There was a beach that headed off the trail. One bad thing is that my two dopey brothers got in a fight. My older brother actually pushed my younger brother into the lake…I could barely stand it on my feet! Luckily, it was only waist high, not REALLY deep. Well, my brother had a fit. THEN he tried to push my older brother into the lake. It backfired and he went in head-first. A not-so-good ending to a great day!
Thursday- Another hike around a lake. We hiked a round a small lake, 2.5 miles long, I think. But this time my mom let me ride my bike! It was pretty fun. My little brother was allowed to ride his bike, too. Only 0.5 miles in, my brother’s chain fell off. He had walk the bike around the rest of the lake! I felt pretty bad for him. We stopped at a couple of docks on the way around. My older brother threatened to push me in at one, but I knew that was just a dumb joke. My little brother tried to ride down a hill, not a good idea. He fell and skinned his leg. That night my grandparents came down to watch a new show with us…Harper’s Island. I was only allowed to watch 15 minutes of it. It was after all a murder mystery and someone died within the first 10 minutes! Anyway, my grandparents brought a big jar of jellybeans! Yum! That was the end of my Thursday.
Friday-LAZY DAY! We stayed home all day because my dad went to school. (He’s trying to get a better job.) I mostly lazed around eating jellybeans and playing on the computer. I occasionally got up to go to the bathroom and stuff, but mostly just lazed around. My friend asked me if I wanted to go to the mall with her, but my mom said no. Hmm…oh yeah! We (me and my brother) played outside for awhile with our neighbors. That was fun. And um…yeah. That’s about it.
Saturday- BLECH! First thing I do is go to my brother’s soccer game. It took FOREVER! At least I got my dad to get me hot chocolate! After his game, we went to Fred Meyers. There I cut 5 inches off my hair and you can barely tell! Well, when I was getting my haircut, guess who walked in! My friend! My friend who came over LAST Friday. She was surprised, too. Apparently her mom had bumped into my dad in the store and he told her I was getting my haircut. My friend didn’t hear that, so my mom sent her to the haircutting place, saying the thing she was supposed to be looking for was BLAH BLAH BLAH pretty obvious. We chatted for a while, and then it was time to go home. When we got home, my dad boiled some eggs. Woo, hoo! Easter Egg dying! That was fun! My mom bought some glitter that you dipped the eggs in. I made six. After that, we went and played with our neighbors on their trampoline.
Sunday-EASTER! When I got up it was 6:30. I woke up so early because I was excited to get to the candy. I got Robin Eggs, (colorful malt balls) a big chocolate Easter bunny, Peeps and a ton of Starburst jellybeans. Oh yeah, and the Turkey Eggs. SO +GROSS+! = SO GROSS! They’re basically giant marshmallow filled jellybeans. I had one and almost threw up. Well, I dressed up in a pink Easter dress. I normally HATE dresses, but this one was pretty. Since no one else was up yet, I ate some candy and went on the computer. After that I just hung out waiting for the Easter egg hung to begin! My neighbors, (Diagonal and next to us), came to our BLAH BLAH BLAH house at eleven and we waited while the adults hid the eggs. Finally, they were done. I ran up and down, looking for eggs. I found…15 total. 5 were filled and plastic. 4 were empty and plastic and 6 were hardboiled. There was one egg that I found a dollar in, PLUS a candy! That one was cool. Then our neighbors stayed at our house, playing hide-and-go-seek, video games, watching movies and going on the computer! I was sad when they left. It was finally time for bed. I admit, I snuck some candy into my room and ate it while reading my book. What a perfect end to Spring Break!
Well, did you like it? I know I said BLAH BLAH BLAH a lot, but that was to check if you were actually reading it. Then again, I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t want to read the WHOLE THING. I mean, total it’s 1,861 words! That’s A LOT! If you actually DID read the WHOLE THING, thanks! I worked hard on it, you know. I asked my parents to refresh my memory and whatnot. Okay, now I’m just trying to get 2,000 words. So far I have 1,831. Hey! Maybe I could tell you all about my kitten! Oh, never mind. I’m soooo desperate to get 2,000 words it’s scary! Oh, well. Maybe next time, bye!
