Rush rush rush! I got up at 9am and flipped the TV on while I tried to wake up. The Sunday paper plopped hard out front and that’s what woke me up. What to do today. I started cleaning out my bedroom closet today. Sorting out clothes trying to figure out what I’m keeping and what was going to be sold at the garage sale or given away at Goodwill. Today is also my niece, Sade and my nephew, Jason’s birthday party. Sade’s actual bday was on Friday and Jasonâ€™s is next week. I’ll head over after class.
So I went out to get some breakfast and came home to read the paper. Then I got ready for class. I was assisting the Pro Baking class today. We’re making wedding cakes. When I got there I found many of my old classmates who were lingering around from the Pro II class. Kevin, Amy, Laura and Turie were there. We were just missing Marc and Melissa and we would have been complete. It was kewl to see Kevin again. Kevin is now married. Turie was actually assisting the class. She looked great. Class got out late so we were rushed to get things ready for Pro Baking. Garee showed up. He sure looked relaxed. You see…he just spent a week in Belize. Nice, huh!
Everyone showed up and Carol made an announcement to the class that I had gotten my job at Sur La Table. Everyone in class congratulated me. I’m going to miss the school. But Iâ€™ll soon have my own school to run. It was white cakes today – similar recipe for a wedding cake. So were making a White Almond Cake with a butter cream frosting. It was a long, hot, class. I got out of class at 7pm.
I then rushed out to Target to buy some birthday gift bags. After that I showed up at my sister Lynn’s house. A childhood friend, Henry was just leaving with his mom, my aunt Gloria. We talked for a bit and my mom and dad walked out. I told them I was moving to DC and Henry said he frequently goes to NY. I told him to come down and visit. With gifts in hand, I walked into the house. Shiva was firmly planted in front of a new Casio keyboard my dad bought for Jason. She was hooked to the “follow the light” learning feature of the keyboard. Toni-Lynn saw me and ran for me! Iâ€™m going to miss her very much when I move. Jason and Sade came running up too. Excitedly, Jason wanted to know what I got him. I then said…what size shoe do you wear? He said? “What?!? You got me shoes??” I then looked at his mom and said “I hope I got the right size, he wears a size 2 right??” My sister then smiled and agreed. Jason took the bag from me and started to rip the tissue paper. Out fell a Gameboy Advance and a carry bag. He was like “no way!!” and ran off to show his brother and cousins. I then tried the same trick with Sade. She looked sad. She then opened her bag to find a Gameboy Color and a Powerpuffs game. She was happy. I then headed out to see the rest of the guests. John and Charles were in the pool, while Ronnie, my sister Beth, and Leslie were in the back around the pit fire. My sister Lynn told me to get something to eat.
After a little bit, I got ready to leave. I needed to go to my mom’s house and look for my Mattel badge. I got to my mom’s house, found the badge and said good nite to my mom. I got home and found the room in the state I left it. The bed was filled with crap and there was no where to walk on the floor. I was so pissed that I left the room like this. I had no place to sleep. Ugh! I went online to look at my Roommate ads to find that no one has replied. I checked a few Sunday papers online for room for rent listings. Before I knew it, it was like 2am. I have to get to bed. I’ll talk with y’all tomorrow. NITE!
