At 8 am, my alarm went off, and I knew I had to get up. I had to go check on our neighbor’s cat, Sydney. Erica decided to come with, and my mom told Erica to eat a cinnamon roll on the way. So, Erica and I walked to Ann’s house to go feed Sydney and, as we walked, Erica was stuffing her face with a cinnamon roll. We got to Ann’s youe and I struggled with the key to the house; we ended up going in the back door because , for some resin, I COULD NOT unlock the front door. When we were inside, I put Sydney’s food on a plate and tried to get her to eat it, and that was a struggle on its own. Sydney wanted to go outside, so I let her out. That was a mistake.

I was planning on going to church at 9, but Sydney did not want to go back inside. Erica left, and I decided to stay with Sydney for a bit to see if she would go back inside. I tried everything I could think of to get her back inside, but she just wanted to sunbathe. I tried to get her to eat some more, but she didn’t want to eat her wet food; she just wanted to eat the dry food that was outside. She also really liked walking on my toes. Eventually, I left her to go to church to say hi to Mae and Bri and to find my family. Of course, when I was leaving, Sydney didn’t want me to go. She stood by my feet, as shown in the featured picture. She was sending very mixed messages.

I walked to church and helped my parents and the kids they were watching clean up the room they were playing in. I had a brief moment of confusion when Mae said I was her aunt because I was her mom’s sister; I realized she’s been calling Erica “mommy” on and off, so that makes a lot of sense. Erica came to say hi to Mae and Bri, and we took them to get donuts. It’s always bittersweet taking them to get donuts because it’s cute that they’re so excited for donuts, but it’s also sad because they both like maple bars and I like maple bars, so I don’t usually eat one because there are only usually two. Anyway, we took them to their dad and took another kid to his mom before going back to check on Sydney.

Sydney still didn’t want to go inside (she even scratched Erica a little), so I texted Ann and told her I was going to leave Sydney outside for an hour. During that hour, my family and I went to this restaurant called King Noodles, or as we called it by accident once, King Noods. My dad, Erica, and I all got pho, while my mom got two appetizers: calamari and fried tofu. We hadn’t been there in a while, so it was nice to go there again. We ended up taking home calamari because, classic, my mom didn’t finish her food. After eating, we went to the grocery store because my mom needed to buy food to cook for her godmother. Also, Erica wanted bagels because she had to throw out the moldy bagels.

I went back to check on Sydney when we got back, and she was FINALLY ready to go back inside. I played with her a little bit before she got bored and wanted to go outside Sydney Wants to Go Outagain. She scratched at the door for a bit, and then sat there looking wistfully at the backyard. It reminded me of that meme where the dog is looking out the window and the caption is “when will my husband return from war.” I did feel bad for not letting her out, but she had been outside all morning. I went back home after refilling Sydney’s water bowl; it was a nice walk home because the it was sunny, but not hot.

When I got home, I started working on my homework, my mom was cooking, my dad was working, and Erica was doing homework. Soon after, my mom left to go bring food to her godmother and to check up on her. Erica had a violin lesson later in the day, so she practiced violin, and I was left to do homework that I’m still behind on. My productivity was not very high, so I didn’t get much work done. That’s a problem because I’m pretty busy this week and the homework’s due on Wednesday. We’ll see how it goes.

My mom came home a little bit before we had to leave to bring Erica to violin. I went with them because I felt bad that my mom would have to sit and wait for Erica for an image-1-9.jpghour with nothing to do. After dropping off Erica, my mom and I went to Starbucks. I got an iced white chocolate mocha and my mom got a black tea lemonade. I really do feel like we have a Starbucks problem, but I haven’t been that many times since I’ve been home, so I think I’m getting better. My mom, on the other hand, just generally drinks too much caffeine. We sat at Starbucks and talked for the hour that Erica was in violin, mostly because it was too warm to just sit and wait in the car. We bought Erica a s’mores frappuccino before heading back to her violin teacher’s house because she would have been really mad if we didn’t. Erica came back into the car with a single peony that her teacher gave her, so that was a little weird. We drove home, and I was super tired, but not tired enough to take a nap in the car apparently. I just could not fall asleep in the car.

My mom dropped my sister and I off at Ann’s house because I had to check on Sydney one more time. But, I guess Ann forgot to text me that she was home, so Erica and I just said hi to her and Sydney before walking back home. On our way home, Erica and I read Instagram posts in annoying voices and also judged people because we’re judge people. Once we got home, I notice that my mom put the peony in a pretty big vase for just one flower. I pointed it out to Erica and she died a little. After that, I went back to doing work. In less that an hour, we had dinner. We had chicken with mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, and white broccoli (cauliflower). We actually ate it all and didn’t have leftovers; I was so proud. Usually we end up with 600 tons of leftovers that eventually go bad in the fridge. It’s been a perpetual problem since I was a small child.

After dinner, I watched Sunday night game shows that they have in the summer. I was really excited because I love Family Feud, and, on Sunday, they show CELEBRITY Family Feud, so it’s usually even funnier. Steve Harvey also has a new show called Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, and it’s like a more fun version of Shark Tank. It was actually really interesting watching the inventors give their pitches to an audience. In the show, the audience decides which company/invention is funded, so the presentations are a lot funnier. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect when I started watching the show; I just think Steve Harvey is really entertaining.
