13 year old houseperson

I really don't know how you mothers do it. Cleaning, Laundry, Cooking, etc. Today since we are doing major work on the house, I was put in charge of keeping the house in as much order as it could be. My mom and older brother were painting the outside of the house, and my dad was tiling the bathroom and doing some plumbing. We had days worth of laundry backed up, so can you guess how was in charge of that? Me. Not only that, but the dryer isn't drying well, so I had to hang some clothes outside to dry. See?

I also BBQ chicken for dinner. I thought the raw chicken was slimy and gross, but the finished outcome was extremely delicious. My mom even said that it was the best chicken she's ever had. And that's the dryer beeping. Time for another load of laundry. I'm tired and my feet hurt like crazy!!

Amazing Clouds In California

Yesterday, the humidity went away at around 5:00ish. So I decided to walk out in my backyard since it was starting to rain. I looked up, and this is what I saw:

Aren't those clouds spectacular? I was completely amazed. Oh, and yesterday, I had my first completely, totally headache free day!!!!

Very Humid Day in California

So far, I'm having a headache free day. I had another skating dream last night. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the cold ice. Especially today since is an extremely humid 76 degrees. Although I was born and raised in Southern California, its usually not this warm in late-April. My brother came home early today from collagen (yes, he is only 16), so it is very nice to have him around the house even if he is only painting the trim around the house. Tomorrow, I'm babysitting a little boy says he's 16, but I think he's only 4 or 5. LOL
My dad and brother came back from Utah monday night. And they fell in love with it there. We hope to put the house on the market in 2-4 weeks. Yes that soon, I don't think I'm ready to leave either. My mom is getting a little cranky cause of all the phone calls and plans we have to make. I'd better go and finish my school. Bye!

Gloomy day in Southern California

It has been a very gloomy day once again. My school today was very easy and comfy. I did my Biology yesterday so I could have today off. Yay! I just got my Biology test grades back!! I got a solid A. Ever since I got clunked on the head, my grades have been much better. For my Bio. tests, I do the test on the computer at, then my teacher grades it when she has the chance. The teachers are other home school moms from the classes that I go to every other Friday. The moms get to pick the classes they want to help out in for 2 periods and then they the third period off. So my mom helps out with Kindergarten in 1st and 3rd period and she gets 2nd period off which is right before lunch. Where do we do these classes? We do them at a large church with a bunch of classrooms so have enough room. Every year we have about couple hundred kids ranging from newborns all the way through high school. There are so many classes to choose from like: Biology, Chemistry, General and Physical Science, Knitting, Papercrafting, Art, Watercolors,Acrylics, History, California History, PE, Automotive basics, Cake decorating, Literature, and so much more. Have a good rest of your day!

                                     Yes, that is me. Don't I look so happy doing my Algebra? :)
                                   That is not rain clouds, its gloomy, depressing fog. (sigh)

On a walk

Not much went on today, except that I went on a walk with mom and little brother. It has been chilly and gloomy the whole day, very unusual for a mid-April day. But the mocking birds, doves, and crows didn't seem to mind.
Almost a headache free day! Yesterday, I had awful headaches. I was so frustrated. :(
My mom said on Saturday I will be able to help out with the little kids in Skating School!!! I'm really excited, although I will have to go on the ice before then to gain my balance. But I don't mind at all, the more and sooner I skate, the better.
Tonight is a cuddle night with my mom. We get to sit down on the couch and watch TV together. I'm very excited. Lately, we have been watching Melissa and Joey with Melissa something and Joey Lawrence. Well, its time to put on my PJs for cuddle night with mommy. Nighty Night.

A clean room

Since I figured out how to upload pictures, I'm obsessed with my camera and blogging(again).
Heres a couple pictures of my room with the new rug and curtains.

         Don't you wish every 13 year old girl or every female's room was as clean and pretty?
Thats everything for this morning. Have a wonderful day and I will enjoy the rest of my headache free day.

Day #2

Today is the second day of no headaches!!!!!!!  You have no idea how happy I am.  I found a tactic: Saying no to the headaches. Telling them that they have to go. And it works!! I knew it would work by telling yourself that you are healed. My brain just needed some encouragement!!!

Here are some crafts that I made at a homeschooling class I went to. (I finally figured out how to upload pictures! Horray) Enjoy these and I will enjoy the rest of my headache free day.

 These flowers are felt magnets. I absolutely adore them.

Headaches, Redecorating, and School Oh My!!

Unfortunately, It seems like my headaches are getting worse. Yesterday, my headaches were awful in the morning and OK in the evening. Today, I've had a small, yet annoying headache the whole day. I still have not had a headache free day:( All right, enough about my aches and pains.
I have almost finished redecorating my room. On Monday we went to Target, and I bought a big fur rug and white cotton curtains.(my cat destroyed my other ones) All that's left to do is to buy a new comforter. Any ideas?
Today is a bright and sunny 64 degrees. My plan is to get my school done at around 1:00. Which reminds me I have to go finish my Algebra. Bye!

Happy belated Easter to you all!!  The other day, my big brother turned 16.  I wish him the best and maybe one day he will want to get a car.(he takes the bus to colleage because he doesn't want a car)
I'm so proud of my brother and all you have accomplished. He graduated high school at age 14 and started colleage at 15, homeschooling really work.
This week, my aunt and uncle came down from Sacramento to visit. My uncle had never seen Malibu, so my mom took them to see the biggest attraction, the big blue ocean. My mom said that she has never seen it so blue and clean, even though she has lived here most of her life.(she was born in Hawaii where her dad was stationed, he was in the military.)
Yesterday, was my best headache day since the accident. My headache started at 4:00 PM and ended at around 5:00. Usually, they start at noon and end at around 8:00. But the headaches are on and off. Maybe today will be my first day without headaches.

Yesterday, I babysat a cute little boy named Gabe. He was the sweetest little boy I had ever watched. He hung out with me from about 8:30 - 4:00. He has Cerebral Palsy, so It was real blessing to his mother.
Today, my mom and I are going to make a chocolate cake. Shes finally going teach me how to make a cake that doesn't fall apart at the sides. Its going to be a 4 layer cake. We are going to make a wonderful cake, and everybody will go 'Ohhhh'. Well, I smell something yummy. Gotta go!

Busy Busy Bee

Today was quite a busy day. I babysat a little boy named JJ from 10:00-2:15. And then around 2:45 a good friend of mine came over and hung out with me.

Yesterday, my mom and older brother painted my door and baseboards. So unfortunately, I had to move everything out from the wall and into the middle of the room. My room was a mess!! Books were everywhere and my toys were heaped on to my bed making a 3' high mountain. Since my room, and my brothers room still smelled like paint, we had to camp out on the living floor. Because the bathroom is still being remolded theres debris. My mom is also allergic to dust so Saturday they had to drag their mattress out into the living room as well. So last night, It like was a big slumber party with 5 people sleeping in the living room, not including Lilly and the 2 cats.
Also yesterday evening, family came over to celebrate. Its birthday time! My cousin & brother are both turning 16. They are only 2 weeks excatly apart from each other! Because my mom was busy painting, it was my job to bake the birthday cake. It was my first time baking a cake and I had no one really to help me. I finshed baking the cake and lookin good. But then it was time to frost. The white frosting ended up looking like iceing, then there wasn't enough frosting, then the cake itself started falling apart, then the cakes where falling so it was slightly lopsided, then on top of that, cakes didn't cool long enough so the frosting was slipping off. I was so upset. I wanted to be the proud baker of a beautiful cake, not a lopsided donut!! When my mom saw the cake, she laughed, and said that we have all been there. So later that day, when it was time to bring out the cake- I'm sorry, the oversized donut, I was very embaressed and explained to everyone what had happened. Being the sweet family that they are, they told me it was okay and that they had done the same thing. In the end, the donut turned out to be delicous as well as the Chinese food that we ordered.
What are your cake horror stories?

Duty Calls

Yesterday my dad and my uncle worked all day in the 40 yr old master bathroom, tearing apart walls, rewiring electrical.  Also, my mom painted my brothers room a pale blue. Today, she is going to maybe paint my room, but shes for sure going to put molding around the window, paint the door, and baseboards. Who cooked and cleaned? My Aunt (All Things Yummy Blog) and I cooked, cleaned, and organized the kitchen. For dinner, she made bagels and Cream cheese, smoked Salmon, and Frittaa. Once all was said and done, we sat down in the living room and rested our feet to watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Fantastic movie!!
Today the work continues, and my job is to keep things clean and organize my brothers room. Ugh!!
Duty calls.
