Going... Going... And Going again...

This has been an extremely eventful day. How so? Well, woke up at 7:00, had a half-an-hour to shower, eat breakfast, ect and then headed out to Minneapolis to Orchestra Hall to view an orchestra play theme songs from popular movies such as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings :D :D :D, and Fantasia (ugh). It was... fun. I guess... Well, no, not really. I mean, the Star Wars and LOTR was awesome- aside from the fact that during the LOTR performance this really, really high-pitched, sixth grade boy got up and sang like a girl. *laughs* I barely suppressed laughter. I'm not even kidding. The only reason I didn't burst out laughing then and there was because my cousin Ryan cast me this threatening glance that clearly communicated: Don't you dare. So yeah, I held it in there. But then there was this other song. One that went on, and on, and on, and on... And it was so boring and dumb that I couldn't help myself so I laughed quietly into my fist. *grins* Thankfully, the production only lasted about two hours so I was saved. :D
After Orchestra Hall, my family navigated the way back to our car and headed out to a friend's house to eat lunch, and then, immediately after, headed out to a community center as an activity for one of my homeschool coops ROCK. It was a lot of fun playing basketball and other cool stuff, but when I swam, I found that swimming with contacts in is pretty irritating. I mean, every time water gets into your eyes they move all over and sting, so yeah.
And now, during this short respite I have at home, I'm about to get going. Again. But I'm really excited. :D I'm going to one of my best friend's (Hunter) birthday party/sleepover. *grins* I can't wait. :D
Also, I'm glad I got to read at least a little today while I was on the road. Anyone heard of the Ranger's Apprentice series? I'm rereading them and I have to say, they're completely incredible. That is not an understatement. I know I say this about A LOT of books, but this is genuine. Really. Whoever hasn't read them MUST check them out.
And with that, I will close this post.
