NINETEEN DAYS UNTIL!!!

First, two thank-yous:
Thanks to Cori for following!!! You rock!
Thanks for the Legolas Fan Award and the Eowyn's Courage Award, Eldarwen!! I love them. (You can see them on my sidebar just past the Visitors Since... and the Find it Fast thing.)

Also, I made a Christmas Blog Button :D It's on the side right there. Yeah, there. Feel free to put it on your blog :D Lols ;P

We are down to the teens! Only nineteen more days until Christmas!

What better way to celebrate the teens with a quick announcement?

I FINALLY CALLED THE NON-PUBLIC EDUCATION PEOPLE ABOUT GETTING MY PERMIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After waiting since MARCH for my parents to do it for me, Mrs. Martha (Matt and Katie's mom, my second mom) told me I should do it myself. Yesterday when we were at their house all day, she asked me when I got up in the morning. I told her (sheepishly) about ten, and she told me she'd call me at ten thirty and remind me to call them myself!

So this morning, my dad comes into my room while I'm still asleep and says, "Telephone," holding out the phone. I blink at him, my hair in a ponytail that WAS neat last night and a voice resembling a frog say, "Oh. It's Mrs. Martha..." I take the phone.

Me: *croak* "Hello?"
Mrs. Martha: "Hey, I told you I'd call!"
Me: *smiling groggily* "Yep." *getting out of bed* "I'm making a note to call right now..."
Mrs. Martha: "I have a meeting at 10 so I had to call earlier. Sorry."
Me: *freeze...look at clock...it's 9:30 WHEW* "Oh, it's fine. Thanks for calling!!"

So, I did :D And I should be receiving a certificate of eligibility within a couple of days! Yay!

FYI:
Favorite Christmas song ever: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. This is an awesome version by MercyMe.
