I used to look SO forward to Christmas, cuz everyone would go to someone's house, and Shannon, Mandy and me would all sleep in one room...well we would pretend to sleep, so that the parents would put our stockings out, and then we'd open them right away, to give us a little fix before the big morning!! And I could never wait until summer came, cuz I knew that meant that we would be going up to the lake, and everyone would be up there, and we'd go tubing, and sit around the fire and play The Alphabet Game, and everyone would get drunk. And I would think of how great it was going to be when I turned 18, and could drink with them. THAT never happened.
And now, I have no real aunt, I'm scared of my uncle, no cousins. They can all die for all I care. My Grandma is nuts!! and my Grandpa is dying. I have SO much to be thankful for. Ohhhh yes.
Oh, and now mom is getting mad, cuz I'm typing too much. Wahoo.
