The Bunny Story and the Owl Story

"Once upon a time, there were three bunnies that lived in a burrow with their mommy and daddy. The burrow was made out of straw to keep the bunnies warm and fluff to keep the bunnies comfy when they went to sleep. Above the burrow was a big tree with a nest in it where three owls lived with their mommy and daddy. Their nest was made out of twigs and feathers to keep it soft and warm when the baby owls went to sleep. One day, the baby bunnies and the baby owls decided to go pick flowers. So the three baby bunnies ran out of the burrow, across the meadow, and into the flower field. Meanwhile, the baby owls flew out of the nest, across the meadow, and into their flower field. There were big flowers and small flowers, tall flowers and short flowers, red flowers and blue flowers, pink, purple, green, yellow, and there were even polka dotted flowers...."

This is my daughters favorite bedtime story that her mommy made up. She came down with her mom for a visit for two weeks and I get to tell it to her every night and sometimes when she takes a nap. Even though she's young, she remembers me and everything about me. She knows colors, names, body parts, animals, and numbers. She's really smart and courteous. If you offer something that she doesn't want, she lets out a petite "No, thank you!"

Cutest kid ever.

It's official. We went to Wal-Mart today for our weekly shopping and decided that we should buy a fish. After looking around at all the tanks, we went with a Betta fish and we named him Charlie after setting up his tank. Since we can't afford a cat right now, I think this is an awesome addition to our place. He takes up no room on the bookshelf, and he's nice to look at. I think after we earn some money, we'll get a bigger tank. We bought plastic skull to put at the bottom, but the tank is really small. It came with an air pump and a light, though, so score 1 for Wal-Mart. After getting a small bag of gravel and some fish food, total cost of a new pet = $23. Not bad.


As for the rest of the week, I haven't done much. I'm trying to get more hours at work so I can get more money, and I'm trying to finish up my school shopping. I nearly have all of my books and my first day starts on the 24th. I'm excited but hesitant because I was never a huge fan of school to begin with. I'm really looking forward to the social aspect of school. I'm not exactly the guy most people would walk up to for idle chit chat, but being around people my age might give me some incentive to make friends since I have none... yeah.

Anyways, sorry for taking forever to post guys. I haven't been online for a while and I have some catching up to do with all of your blogs. Looking forwards to comments!
