Mom worked again today, so she took off pretty early, as did Dad as he was going to a men's Bible study at Harvest Fellowship. Tevia got on the bus, and so it was just Jana and Me at home. I worked a little on my computer, and then practiced piano and watched YouTube videos for awhile, until Dad and Tevia got home. Dad decided he wanted each of us to do some cleaning, so I cleaned the piano room, moving the piano to the other side of the room. It makes it seem a little bigger. Then I played some more piano. Really, I played probably like an hour and a half of piano today. Anyway, I went down to the basement where I worked on some things, including a poster that I put up in Frazee Family Foods near the cash register, that basically said, "yo plz donate to my fundraiser." I mean obviously it was a lot more sophisticated than that, but that's a quick summary. I rode in with Grandpa and Tevia and got the OK from Heath, and then Kim helped me find a spot for them, and also told me that when I come in tomorrow for work, I should bring a little bucket to put next to the register for cash donations. I also added a really cool/annoying popup to my website last night and it's super awesome. After Grandpa brought me home, there wasn't anyone there, so I played some more piano, and then went and got the scooter ready for the season, putting the battery in there and all. I got it running, and then I drove it to Grandpa and Nana's. I also realized that I should have worn a scarf. I came home and made eggs and hashbrowns for dinner, but since Mom was so late we didn't go to Maundy Thursday service with Grandpa and Nana, and so I started working on a new song (You'll Be Back) since I already mastered the last one I was working on (How Far I'll Go). Mom got home and I had to practice music for Friday and then we all went to bed after I played some more piano. Again.
June 10, 2019 Boring Monday I didn't really feel like getting up as early this morning, so ended up staying in bed until around 7:15. It was really quite nice to stay in bed, even if I wasn't really sleeping at all. After I got up, I had some water to make sure I was hydrated, and then went outside and finished up some of the painting from Friday on the building across the parking lot, just doing some trim. I got done with that around 8:30, so then I just spent some quality time working on projects that I haven't had time to do lately (gotta love the fact that all my computers sync with my phone so I can work anywhere) and then went and cleaned the apartment. Dad came back from working slightly after I finished cleaning, and so we had lunch together, and then Mom came over from the hospital as well and stayed and talked until around 1. Once they both left, I did some more cleaning, boiled some eggs, cleaned the apartment kitchen again, worked on more stuff on my phone, pra…
June 01, 2019Leaving the Country We got up around 7:30 this morning and got ready to go before catching a shuttle to the airport around 8. When we got to the airport, we first had to go find our bag that they had lost the night before, then go check-in, and then check our bag, all before going through the busy security in Miami. There was a drug dog there, and I got told almost 5 times not to pet it, even though I wasn't even planning on petting it. We got through TSA, and then we went and found our gate. We sat there for only a few minutes before boarding started, and then it was a very easy flight to Roatan Honduras. We landed there and then got off the plane and went through customs. After we got all checked out, they let us officially enter the country where we got tickets for our next flight, and went through security again. After we got through security, we sat in the airport for awhile, where we had lunch (I had nachos) and then boarded a smaller 18 passenger plane for the m…
June 09, 2019 Spanish Church This morning I slept in more than I have any other day. Mom was the only one at the apartment when I woke up (Jana and Tevia have their own studio apartment) as Dad took a 3am - 8 shift in the hospital nursing. Mom has been on call the last two nights which has been rough for her, but she's fine I think. I got up and had a bite to eat, and then we all walked over to the on-campus church for the 8:30 service. It was all in Spanish, so even though we knew some of the songs, everything else was pretty confusing, as while I can pick up little bits, it's not enough to really understand the overall idea. It got over quite early, around 10:30, so we came back to the apartment and hung around. I played guitar for awhile, lost to Josh in a game of Scrabble, and then worked on my journal for awhile, and everyone else went down to the beach in the meantime. The days get to be quite long when you're not doing anything, so we had a family meeting during the…
