California is weird. Wait, let me rephrase that... My Aunt and Uncle are weird. They never had kids (my Aunt wasn't able to), and they're not used to having a kid in the house. For the past four days I've been waited on, hand and foot.
Every five minutes it's "Do you need anything? Are you hungry?" Finally, I talked to them today, and let them know I'm okay and such. Don't get me wrong, they're not bad people - at all. In fact, my uncle took all this week off from work for when I'm here. (My Aunt doesn't have to work.)
My room here is
big huge. It's on the third floor of their house, and it IS the third floor. It kind of looks like maybe an attic? That's finished off, with heating and cooling. I have my own bathroom up here, that's probably the size of my old room. I can not believe it. Tuesday, and Wednesday night I stayed in one of the guest rooms on the second floor (which is made up of a bathroom, two guest rooms, my Aunt's studio, my Uncle's office, and a den/entertainment type room.
Wednesday my aunt and uncle took me to every furnature/paint store/place imaginable in California, I think. They let me pick everything out, which was thrilling, because there was no price budget. I felt really spoiled. Which isn't really a bad thing, since my family didn't have that much money...hardly ever.
For my walls, they're painted a navy blue color, and my Aunt and sponged the ceiling with lighter blue, so it kind of looks like a night sky. This was a bitch to do, and took us about six hours. Thankfully, other people painted the walls. The same light blue is the trim. I have hardwood floors, and we bought this really nice white fluffy rug. My bed is amazing, and one of my favorite things. It's a tall, four-post bed, that has these navy sheer sheet like things that come down. I got a white down comforter to go with it.
Um, I got a bookcase and a huge corner desk. Not just like any corner desk, but something you'd see out in like a big office for some excutive. The real surprise was getting a new computer (which I'm currently typing to you on). So I feel all big and important sitting at my huge desk, typing on my new computer.
On the other side of the room, is my creamy white leather couch (with navy pillows) that faces my new tv (in this weird like entertainment center that matches the color of my desk/bookshelf). My Uncle picked this stuff out, I would have been perfectly happy without it.
One of my favorite things is my new stereo system, that even has...get this... TURNTABLES!!! I am in love. My aunt and uncle said that we can start re-building my cd collection anytime. Also the same for movies. I didn't want to tell them that I only owned one movie before (and it was a cheap Disney one at that).
I love my closet it's a big two doored mirror one. Let's just say, I could fit my bed in there. Not that I have enough clothes to fill it. I had to draw the line Wednesday when they wanted to take me out and buy me all new clothes, too. I don't think they like the hand me downs I got from the Miller's church when our house burned. So my Aunt whispered to me as we were in Pier One (yes, we were even in there) that she will take me out next week.
I am still in shock. I feel like I should wake up tomorrow, and none of this nice stuff will be here. I certainly didn't have a TENTH of any of this, and now here I am with it all. I spend a lot of time in my room now that it's all done. Which is what I think they were hoping for. My uncle usually works a lot, and my aunt spends a lot of time in her studio.
Get this, she doesn't even cook for us!!! A live in housekeeper does. Her name is hard to pronounce and I spent ten minutes trying to get it right. Finally, she said I can just call her Maria (it kind of sounds like that). She is really nice. I was afraid she was going to be mean. When I woke up this morning, she was in getting my dirty clothes. I told her she didn't have to do that, in fact I'd be bothered if she cleaned up after me. So we made a deal that she didn't have to clean up after me, as long as my aunt and uncle wouldn't find out (she would get in trouble). Just for this, she made my favorite tonight (meatloaf!).
So yeah, this is what's going on. On Monday I get to go tour my new school. I am very nervous. For one, it's a private school. Which means uniforms. Two, it's WAY bigger than my old school. I am going to be a bundle of nerves Sunday night, I just know it.
James and I made up on the car ride to St. Louis. He confided in me that, he's just really upset with me leaving. Which I can understand. We're hoping that he can come out here for Spring Break (which is coming up soon!) hopefully I can get my aunt and uncle to pay for that being as how I know James' family doesn't have that much money...
I'm sorry this is so long, because there are people actually reading it now! I just haven't wrote in a few days, so I had a few things to catch up on. Since I'm home on a Friday night (Although, in about thirty minutes my Uncle is going to take me to Blockbuster (What the hell?) to get a membership (that I'm going to have control of?) He says that he will give me an allowence every week just for movies?!?! I am in heaven, movies are one of my passion.
Anyway, since I'm in tonight I'm probably going to find some more interesting journals to add as friends before I watch my movies.
P.S) I have DSL AND a CD burner!!! Music here I come!
