Okay so as most of you, know my birthday is today! Yay! Something I’ve found myself impatiently waiting for lately. I’ve been waiting for this day for a while. Then yesterday, i was thinking, and this thought popped into my head,”15! Wow, i can’t actually imagine myself as a fifteen year old, it’s just to hard! I mean like I’ve been waiting to turn 15, like it’s something grand! But I really am just a little bit scared to turn, such a big number! I mean think of it, fifteen, that is a whole decade and a half! And with such a big number comes with a lot more responsibilities and requirements! And then just think, where did all those years go, when I could do just about anything and people would think it was cute, and just laugh?!” So now y’all get to see what I think! =P But anyway, yes that is what I was thinking and to tell the total truth, yes I am just a little bit scared/nervous to make such a big step in life. But I mean there just is no avoiding it, so what’s the big deal, well I’m sure this will be another year full of the important life decisions, of a teenager, and the slightest slip up and I will not be allowed to forget it, not with all my sisters and and friends and everybody =) With all this said, I hope that this year is full of growth and maturity, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Oh and yes of course i hope this is a year full of happiness and joy, or of course Sunshine =P (Pun intended)
Okay, enough of the rambling =P
So last weekend we were at my Abuelita’s (Grandmother in Spanish) house, in Boca Raton. We live quite a ways from her, like a total of about 250 miles to the north, so we only get to see her at least once a month. And whenever we are down there around somebody’s birthday, we like to go to this special Mexican restaurant for whoever’s birthday it is. So last week, we went to Uncle Julio’s, with Abuelita, and I was just sitting a the table, with a week to go still, till my birthday, and I was just kinda contemplating what exactly what I want for my birthday, because I mean since last year when I got the Nikon D100 camera, for my birthday, I really have not wanted anything else in particular. But there is one thing I have wanted for a long time, and now I think i have a chance that I might be able to get it, this year. I wanted to ask to get my ears pierced this year, for my 15th birthday. So I announced there at the table, that this is what I want, for my birthday. My parents agreed to “think about it” or in reality I think they kinda needed a little bit of time to get used to the idea itself =) So that was fine with me, just a long as they let me know as soon as a decision was made. Well, knowing my parents, as some of y’all do, they love surprises, and it seem that they not only love to surprise us children, but I tend to think they like to surprise me, especially. Don’t ask me me why because I don’t know why, but I think it might be, more fun to surprise me, more than the rest of my siblings, because it’s just a little bit harder to surprise me.
I am a very observant person, and several times in the past I have figured out what the plans were without any information just a few observations and a little bit of intuition. So yea, when they want to surprise me, they have to work really hard, in order for it to really be a good surprise =)
So anyways, back to the subject at hand. So, it was not till this past Wednesday that i was informed of the decision. So here is what happened. When Papa got home from school that day, he mentioned having to go sometime and go do some “errands” around town, and that he would probably take me with him. I must add here that my sisters did not know anything about my my request at all, and did not know that I had any plans at all to get my ears pierced. So, then around dinner time, Papa and I finally left the house. I only thought we were going to Claire’s, at the Mall, to get my ears done, I did not know Papa had any other plans. When we got to Claire’s, I was just a little bit nervous, because I did know that there would be some kind of pain involved in the process, but I did not know that extent of the anticipated pain, because I have never gotten my ears pierced before. The lady (for lack of a better term, or title) there was very nice, and assured me that the pain was not very bad at all. Then she cleaned my ears and her hands and got all the stuff ready. Once everything was ready, she then marked my ears so that she would know exactly where to pierce. The first ear, was a little bit startling, and no, I did not jump. =P The second ear was not that bad, either, and that was pretty much it!
After Claire’s Papa announced that he was taking me to Olive Garden for dinner. Another one of my family’s b-day celebration/memorials, is the daughter( Noah still has not participated in this one yet) and Papa will go out for dinner for a Father-Daughter dinner. I think I started that one, but i’m sure someone will say other wise =P So, we went to Olive Garden. We had a very enjoyable dinner. Papa took a job there at Olive Garden a few months ago, and he just recently quit, so when we went in, of course we were greeted by the hostess and she recognized him immediately as did several other employees there. We were seated in the section that Papa had covered several times before, and our waiter was a young gentleman named Adrial, another one of Papa’s friends.After dinner we enjoyed a slice of the Black Tie Chocolate Mousse Cheese Cake, for desert. It was very yummy.
I had a lot of fun, and I want to thank my awesome Papa, (who informed just about all his friends there at the Olive Garden, of my upcoming 15th birthday) for the wonderful evening and for his letting me get my ears pierced =) Thank you, Papa. I love you.
Shabbat Shalom Y’all
