Listening to: Newsies - Seize The Day
August 16, 2009 Sunday
Lagoon with my Resa and her Caleb and their New Zealander friend Zeb who made fun of Americans the whole time he was here!
The place was PACKED... for a Sunday I thought...
I gave them coupons saving $12 a ticket. Yay for Mindys cheap ways of life! Then a lady randomly GAVE us a ticket. Just handed us $43 dollars worth of a piece of paper for no apparent reason. Just had an extra. Ironically she handed it to me, the season passport holder... Resa said it was the benefits of talking loudly... But as far as the price they paid to get in I think they were extremely lucky and got their moneys worth of entertainment.
We waited in line for 30-45 minutes at every ride. But we trucked through it and did the White Coaster, The Mouse, The Spider, The Bat, Log Flume er whatever, Colossus, Jet Star (crotch crusher/whip lasher), some flying sail boat type thing Resa wanted to do, the Train, Blast Off, Oooh blast off was hilarious. Resa's terrified face was soo funny, I love her I do, I'm sorry, but I was laughing so hard! That girl is seriously scared of that ride.
We got Dip N' Dots! Yummy mix!
They got hungry around 9:30pm, good timing, we left Lagoon, they drove me home (after some coaxing), I gave them hand hugs and they went to find food.

But as of today my stressful life continues.
I went up Ensign Peak on Saturday. My legs were not used to that steep climb....kinda hurt. I was shaking driving home. Then I spent Sunday standing in line at Lagoon so I was kinda in pain. So I took a nice hot relaxing bath this morning. I feel very vibrant now.
Grandma is still prancing around me lightly, being extra careful with her words cuz I sinned on Sunday.
Came to work and spent most of the time there fixing the calendaring mistakes I made in July and texting Ryan. He -never- texts me. Apparently his network is down so he's bored. Makes sense now. And I'm still debating on giving Natalie my car for the weekend while I'm camping. Streessss.
And then me Mum called and pretended to talk/care about other things in life but apparently just wanted my money. I just made a payment on my credit card, as in money goes out of the account as of midnight tonight. It is spent! It's a good thing she called before she took any of that money. So all I had left was 113 in savings. She wanted 100. I have $13 left in my savings. Sniffles. That woman doesn't miss a beat when it comes taking my money. (Cept when it comes to keeping track of checks and budgeting everything -before- spending)As soon as I said it was okay to take it, the button was clicked and my account drained. I'm not even sure she waited til I said okay... or waited til the convo was over...
I have complained about this many a time. I have stressed over her stealing my money plenty of times. I should really kick her off my accounts. I really should. Originally it was to save my butt when I got in trouble. But now it's all being spent saving hers. BUT she does return the money she takes...in some way...some time...
Am I just too nice of a person? Just because I don't make mistakes like that...doesn't mean she should get punished for not being as good as me? Should she suffer her own consequences? Do I run to save myself? Aaahh what do I do!?
Eeee! And Kirri and Aubree are coming down to Lagoon tonight to play! So I get to go play with them after work! Am I getting tired of Lagoon yet?
