Friday- Well Friday was a good day all around, got paid (times 3). After I got off of work I went home to get prepared for my dad's retirement party/40th Anniversary of Community Service Banquet. It was held at the old Vashon High School at 6pm. It was an interesting evening because my father also was the Master of Ceremonies for the event as well. It was an event that gave recognition and awards to those within the Saint Louis Community for their hard work and efforts for giving back to others in the community.
It was filled with many people giving accolades of praise to my dad and even had video footage with his friends and collegues expressing their wishes for a great retirement as well as their fond memories of him. The food was pretty good overall and my dad being the character that he always is of course stole the show. In the end he was given some presents but the evening was not soley for him. His secretary, Carol who had been with my dad for a VERY long time also was retiring as well. My father has served the Saint Louis Community for over 43 YEARS!!!!
I would say it way past his time to relax as well as my mom. They are both counting down the days and for them it's not coming fast enough.
Saturday- I had work from 4:30pm to close and it wasn't a bad day at all. I also picked up a lil somethin for myself as "good job" gift for the school semester that just finished up. I bought Grand Theft Auto 4 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, both for xbox 360. I've started to play the Rainbow Six but will hold off on the Grand Theft for a lil while. So after I got off of work at 10:30pm that night I went straight to bed.
Sunday- Of course it's Mother's Day, so since my mom wanted Breakfast at Harrah's Casino, that's were we took her at 7:00 AM, oh but who am I to need my sleep especially since I had to work later on at 9:45 AM..... So anyways...my sister was suppose to join us but she never showed up.... deduction of 5 brownie points. So after we eat breakfast mom and dad go back home and I go to my second job to chillout until I have work. After getting off at 1:50 PM, I go to the Saint Louis Mills for a few hours and than proceed to leave there and make my way home.
On my way home while driving on HWY 270 towards Lindbergh, I feel my car acting funny and pull off of the highway. Sure enough my driver front left side tire is completely flat. So I call AAA and give them my location. They come through change the tire and I get home without a problem. Now also at this time Kai (one of my best friends and mother to my godchild) came into town with her familly. I haven't seen them since July '07 and missed them like crazy.
I missed her phonecall and was able to contact her later on that evening. We talked and I met her over James's (her husband) mother's home later on that night. I got there before they showed up by just 5 minutes. So when they did show up I gave Kai and James a hug but my beautiful god-daughter was out for the count. So we were in the house talking with James mother and just chit chattin away when Kai felt like go to "Club Shell" so we departed and went there where she got some "Spirits Juice" aka Wild Rose. All I can say on that is if you want to get drunk in a really cheap way......this is the way the go.
She and I had blast in the car once we rolled back up in front of her mom-in-law's house and popped the bottle. We called James out to get in the car with us so he could partake in the "fabulous" alcoholic beverage. After a few sips he was not feeling it. lolol so he said he was going back inside the house, Kai went along with him and I went back home.
Monday- Work day at full time gig rolls back around and I'm getting ready for work. I get in my car and proceed to drive my regular route when all of sudden I start to feel my car acting up again like it did on Sunday right before my tire went flat. So I immediately turn back around and make it back to the house. I change my clothes and call my principal to let him know that I won't be in for the day because of car issues. So I call our family's mechanic and I inform him of the situation. He tells me to bring the car up to the shop so they can check it out. So I comply and take the car up to Carson's Car Shop off of Natural Bridge and North Hanley and proceed to WALK back to the house.
So I'm at the house all day long bored out of my freakin mind waiting on a phonecall with a status on my car. So while I was killin time, I watched Transformers the movie 6 times.....played Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and got on Second Life. So I finally get a response back by 4:00 PM from the Car place and they tell me what needs to be fixed. I inform my mom who tells my dad and he clears them to fix the issue on the Tire but NOT the issue that I still have with my door not opening from the inside of my car on my side. So it will probably be a few more weeks until that gets fixed. Yet who's counting....it's only been broken since this past January;)
Tuesday- Well I'm at work but still without a car. One of my coworkers was nice enough to pick me up and will drop me off afterwards. Hopefully my car will be ready and I will have my freedom once again.
