This was a lot more than I expected. My mom said professionals would weed the front and back yards for $150 or so. She offered me the money if I wanted to do it. Now, I’m gonna need the money to pay bills and what not. Plus, when I get my apartment, I’m probably going to need to borrow money until financial aid comes in.
My mom called me on the 24th while I was at William’s party to talk to me about it. Monday I went out with gem, and Monday night I went to my mom’s house. Tuesday I started working. I usually get up at 6am, work until 10:30 or 11, shower, eat, nap, start working at 5:30 or 6pm again, work until 8 or 8:30, shower, eat dinner, sleep. I know it sounds like I sleep early, but sleep also means get in bed and call gem.
Tuesday Christine came over during my break (it gets so hot during that time), and we went to the mall. It was fun. Wednesday she came over again during my break and brought me Taco Bell. We watched some Chapelle’s Show too. Thursday I worked in the morning but not in the evening. Instead, I went home. Friday I went out with gem (see previous post), which was obviously great. My mom picked me up Saturday so I worked that evening. While I was attempting to make this job end, I hit the sprinkler system. Now water shoots out everywhere! Joy! Well, only when the sprinklers are on.
Monday I worked most of the day and napped in the middle. I really wanted to get everything over with and decided to cancel on Disneyland. Tuesday I continued working. My mom wanted me to go out to dinner with her and some friends so I didn’t have to work in the evening. As it turns out, her friends had to pull out so we didn’t go. Wednesday was my last day there. I worked in the morning until noon, finishing the areas I had started but not actually even finishing the front yard. She did pay me $100 for what I had done though, not to mention the benefits.
And by benefits, I mean the other money she did spend on me. At one I had an appointment to get my hair cut. I have my pony tail in a plastic bag. Kind of weird. I’m still not used to my new reflection. Regardless of hair, I still look like me though. Too bad, lol. Afterwards we went to the mall where she bought me a couple pairs of jeans, new shoes, and a headset for my cell phone.
On the way home that night we stopped at my aunt’s house to pick up James. It was nice seeing her and her kids again. Everything seems go for Vegas. I’m going to go with my aunt on the 30th and come back around the 5th or so. And that’s that.
