I hate this weather. It is humid and semi-hot and I can't seem to cool down. Even my uncle from Georgia thought it was humid. He and my cousins are here because my cousin Jake is attending the basketball camp here this week. My Uncle and cousin Alysa are staying in Pella this week and are going to visit Eldora tomorrow. My uncle will probably be here again on Wednesday or Thursday so I may do something with him again. I haven't seen him forever so it was fun to get to talk to him. He is a conservative republican so I had to hold myself back a few times when he started going off on a few things. He and I went out to eat at Old Chicago and he insisted on buying me a Samuel Adams, his fave beer, with our meal. He is a pilot for Delta and he was telling me that when he and the other pilots go out for beers when they are on layovers they tell people they are heavy machinery operators so they won't freak out about pilots drinking.

We are getting new carpet in my new apartment!!! But Adam just told me the air conditioner in there is leaking. I am so glad I have him and Rey around to tell me those things. They also told me about the carpet situation down there. I am going to miss not living with Rey. At least she will only be upstairs. I am also getting a new bed. My dad just bought me a cheap bedroom set that includes a headboard, dresser and nightstand and I think he is going to help me buy a mattress and boxspring. I almost got a free bed from my grandpa, but I would have had to buy a new mattress and boxspring for it, so I decided to just get new stuff all together. I don't have a dresser right now, so I am very excited about having one. It is all dark wood, and I prefer lighter wood, but I can't pass up cheap stuff that my dad is helping me buy. My mom also offered me her mattress and two coffee tables and a dresser and a hutch and matching coffee table. All I need are kitchen chairs. I will have to go home some weekend to go through all that stuff and decided what I want. I am not bringing any of it here until I move in the new apartment though. I can't wait to get a new big bed!!! I almost fell off my little bed this morning when I woke up. I need a bigger bed for my own safety.

i'm SO PROUD of you for holding yourself back with your uncle. i fight with my dad all the time about politics. i guess it's also a little different with my dad or an uncle you haven't seen for a while...

HOUSEWORKS has lots of chairs w/o tables

I think my safety is an excellent reason to buy a new bed, and the fact that I want one helps too.

I just got a new desk from someone at work too!!! I have also needed a bigger desk for a long time. Now I just have to figure out how to get it to my apartment.

You have a boyfriend with a truck and mad moving skillz.

Trust me, he is going to be put to work. I have helped him move a couple times, and probably will help again, so it's time for him to hep me.

I actually could use a truck right now to help me get that desk from my friend. I have to move it tomorrow, but I think I will be able to use Seth's truck for that. If not, can someone else with a truck help me??

I was planning on working in the apartment tomorrow night, but I think I could swing a half hour or so.

So much for me volunteering someone else.

I think I have the moving of the desk worked out now!! Thanks!
