I’ll Be Missing You…

My mom was supposed to come home yesterday after spending a week in Colorado Springs with my sisters. She was on her way back up when her tire blew, taking out some wires and her headlight with it. It was crazy and I’m thankful it didn’t do anything worse and that she’s safe.

But that means she’s going to be there for at least a few more days. We’re hoping her insurance will pay for a car like last time (man…that car was a babe). And hopefully we’ll be able to buy another one soon so that we won’t be car-less, again.

It isn’t that hard to get around in this small town without a car. It’s just that my work schedule isn’t working with the bus schedule. I keep having to go into town over an hour before work and staying an hour or two afterwards. Plus, without a car, we can’t go buy groceries in Montrose since the nearest Walmart is two hours away.

I’m just hoping things will work out. This seems to always happen when we’re moving. So much stress right now!

Sleep It Away

Finally! You have no idea how good it feels to be able to sleep the whole night (unless of course you also haven’t been doing it for two and a half years). I mean my goodness!

For two years, I’ve been up until 2/4 so I could convince myself I’d been sleeping the whole night. This summer, I promised myself I’d sleep the whole nightand sleep in late. And I’ve done it. In only a month! I’m amazing when I put myself up to something.

For this week my goal was to sleep the whole night through because last week I accomplished the sleeping late aspect. And it’s been a hassle. Usually, when my mom’s here, she’ll let the cats out or feed them or whatever, so they never bother me. But this whole week they woke me up early for food or water or they’d wake me up in the middle of the night to be let out (I don’t because the neighbors literally will come inside at night and yell at me).

But last night, apparently, I let them out for the perfect amount of time before bed and gave them enough food and water to last the night. I also realized one of the major problems was that I was sleeping with a full on comforter and not a sheet (like I usually use during the summer).

I felt so good to wake up, glance at my phone, and realize I slept from 10 to 12. Heavenly!

Saying Goodbye

It’s really hard for me to say goodbye. Not physically, but mentally. I just miss people and memories too much.

I never really want to leave The Springs and the people in it, but at the same time I know I have to and I’ll be back. But it’s hard only being able to see your sisters and cousins (who you’ve grown up with) once every two months or so. I know that time might get dragged out even longer when I move for college, but I can’t even think about that. We’ve always been so close. We used to do everything together and spend almost every summer day all together.

I hate growing up.

Today fucking sucks. Sorry that you had to hear my life isn’t full of gum drops and rainbows. Sometimes days just suck. Those are the days when you plan something because someone in my family always ruins it.

We planned to go to Walmart and gets some bathing suits then head over to my sister’s apartment to try out her swimming pool. And my other sister is being a dick for the last few days, telling me how much she wished I was gone or dead. So we get there and won’t shut up and keeps saying these mean things and so my day was ruined. Now I feel like shit. I don’t feel like eating. I don’t feel like going outside. I don’t feel like anything.

You may say I’m being too dramatic but I’ve been dealing with this my whole life and I’m sick and tired of pretending it’s fine. That I’m fine. I’m pissed and I don’t care if people think it’s wrong.

The end is finally in sight. I’ll be away at college next year! I won’t have to deal with her any more this summer. And then I’m gone. I’m so stoked.

Summer Time Fun




We started off summer with a bang! We headed out to a day in the park with the little girl I regularly babysit. It was more of a way to tire her out before nap time, but we had fun. We blew bubbles for her and watched her run all over the field to catch them.
