so, my last update took us up to Monday evening in my crazy little world, but so much has happened since then. I’ve been so busy being everywhere but home that I haven’t had much of a chance to blog. but, we’ll start with Tuesday and see how this ends.
well, I was actually supposed to go out shopping with Kristen on Tuesday because we were going to get bachelorette party supplies. but, because that didn’t quite work out, I made other plans. Tara and I picked up Emily and we went out to the mall in Boardman and spent the afternoon hanging out and having fun. so, compared to the rest of my week, Tuesday was a pretty quiet day
on Wednesday, I took an adventure to Akron to help Ben with a project he’s been working on for a while now. there is a small park in Kenmore called Chestnut Ridge Park, and he’s been working on plans to restore it. we spent the whole day working on plans and finding volunteers, donations, and funding for this project. it was quite a successful afternoon of adventures in the big city (or so it seems to a country girl like me). Matt also got in on the project and we enjoyed spending some time with him as well. the whole day was absolutely wonderful, ending with movies and just hanging out :)
Thursday was pretty quiet and mostly based around catching up on sleep and getting ready for my grandma’s brother and his wife to arrive from California for their class reunion.
Friday brought more running around and work, which was boring other than the mishap where I caught my wrist between a falling box of burgers and the shelving unit in the freezer and bruised it up pretty badly. the interesting part of Friday was that my grandparents called and said that they’d bought some really old sheet music from a yard sale. they invited Ben and I to look though it, which we ended up doing after we both got off of work. it was quite a fun time just hanging out at McDonalds and talking for a few hours.
on Saturday I headed out to pick up Kim, which was a good time. the two of us adventured around Akron and spent time just hanging out (and doing a bit of creeping on our respective boyfriends :P). When Matt got off of work, we all went to the mall to hang out, and then ended up going out with Ben and his friends for the evening. the best part is that Ben and I officially started dating XD
today, we went to Matt’s church and then went out to see Chestnut Ridge again and have a hiking adventure at the Gorge Metropark.
after our busy morning, I dropped Kim off at home and headed over to my other friend Matt’s to pick up my new Xbox, which I’m sooooo excited to have! we went to see Steph for a while and just spent some time hanging around Alliance.
overall, the week was quite a crazy, fun-filled, adventure of epic proportions and I don’t think I could be any happier than I am right now :)
