Nicole has moved out. Tacia has moved in! It's great having a roommate that works at Pier 1 and knows what's coming in and what's going on sale and has a discount. Amanda joined us for the weekend! I make good lasagna according to Amanda and good homemade frosting though Josh thinks it's too rich "in some places" (whatever that's supposed to mean)! I am pretty much running the tkd camp at the Gym Nest because I know Ashton is going to bail on me some day. I am back at work and will probably be here kinda late since I was at the Nest all morning. I should do some work now that I am here.

I was dissapointed to learn that my car is not compatible with the newly available E85 fuel. It's better for the environment and significantly cheaper. Most of the vehicles that are compatible are trucks. Those of you with Ford Rangers may want to check it out, but it may not be all that beneficial because there aren't any suppliers around here; most of them are in western Iowa.

I have read the first chapter of the new HP book. I read it last night right after I finished the 5th book. I was going to run last night after helping Shauna celebrate her new job, but I was sooo tired and had such a nice headache that I decided sitting in bed drinking water and reading was a better choice.

My bus comes soon, so I better get ready to go play with other peoples blood!

I have the new HP book but have yet to do more than open the box it came in, pull it out and see how many pages it has. I actually still need to finish re-reading the 5th book. I was too tired this weekend to even think about reading.

In the middle of May I had a few money problems and a friend practically forced me to borrow the $120 I needed from her. I haven't had enough money to pay this person back until now because I finally got my first paycheck for working full-time today. I have always been intending to pay her back as soon as I had the money to do so, but now she is upset with me. I don't think it is solely because of the money. I actually think it has very little to do with it. Recently she accused me of being controlling and judgmental towards her. I don't see myself as either controlling or judgmental, but rather the exact opposite of both andthe people she was telling this to agree with me. She has other things stressing her out right now and I believe that has a lot to do with what she is upset with me about and she is just using me as a way to vent her frustrations about these other things. I am sure there is some basis to what she is saying, but I think she has exaggerated it.

I would really like to pay her back and intend to as of tomorrow, but I don't want it to seem like an apology for things I don't believe I need to apologize for or that I am paying her back now because I am feeling guilty and want to get back on her 'good side'. Along with a check I have filled a gift bag with abot $20 worth of items I thought she could use and enjoy as a kind of interest payment as well as a'thank you' for her generosity.

Am I wrong to not want to give this all to her now because I don't want her to think I feel guilty?
