Today was a long one!! I started out by not even waking up until 9:45. I'm not quite sure how that happened but I guess I was super tired. I got a shower and got ready and was pleasantly surprised to see that the jeans I just bought were too big. Oh the small victories in life. After that, Patty took me to Casa with her to pick up some girls for Mishelle's birthday party. I wanted to go see the girls at P.E. but Patty said the passerella was locked. I was uber excited when Julisa walked over! I got to see her for a while and talk to her. I got to see all of the other girls too. We then left for Chuck E. Cheese. I'd never been in a van with 15 girls on the way to a birthday party that were so quiet. We got to the mall and they were amazed when they saw the escalator. They were so cute getting on and off of it. We went to Chuck E. Cheese and they had popcorn, pizza, soda, ice cream and Dora the Explorer cake. They had fun signing Feliz Cumpleanos and dancing with Chuck E. After that, they each got tokens and went to play games. I watched them all having fun and just played around. Patty and I played the basketball game and she schooled me. She's awesome. After I while I noticed the girls were taking handfuls of tickets to Patty. I realized that they had won a bunch of games! By the end of the day, they had given Patty over 2,000 tickets!! It was NUTS.
We left Chuck E. Cheese and it took us a while to get back to Casa because of the bad traffic in the city. We got them back and they said that they had fun. Patty and I checked the gringo houses for food so that we can go shopping for tomorrow. A bunch of gringos are coming in tomorrow. But while I was in the blue gringo house, I met two women and two girls about my age. They saw my owl and the mom said, "Like Chi O!" and I said "I AM a Chi O!! That's why I have it!" Turns out that the two girls go to different schools but all three of us are Chi Omegas!
How weird is that?! I was excited to meet sisters from different parts of the country in a completely different country. So odd but so cool.
Patty, Mishelle, Michael and I then headed back to the house. We stopped and picked up dinner. Michael started eating his fries in the car and by the time we got back, he was out like a light. He woke right back up when we got back.
The boys had waited around for me to get back to go the movies but I didn't make it back in time. Tim called them to see where they were so that he could take me but none of them answered. So Tim and I got to talking about music. I had no idea that he used to sing a bunch. It was nice to have someone to talk about it with. I don't often get the chance to speak intelligently with someone about music outside of school and church. Most people are too stuck in their genres and they are unwilling to explore.
Well enough about that. I got to Skype with Taylor and he showed me his armpit hair. It was truly lovely. Now I'm ready for bed and I'm getting up really early to go shopping with Patty in the morning.
I hope you all are doing well.. I'm having a blast. I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Tim said after I get done shopping with Patty, I should be able to hang out with the boys. That should be lots of fun.
As for now, I'm pooped so Aslan and I are going to take a nap. Hope you all have a nice day tomorrow!!
