Today was busy.

Handed in my first assignment in fiction writing class.  Then Mom and Dad arrived to pick me and my sister up for the three-day weekend.

So we ran around doing a bunch of errands – including, I registered to vote, yay for me!  Also we paid this month’s rent and that kind of thing.

We went home and packed, real quick, and then on our way out of town we had lunch at a really nice Mexican food restaurant with beautiful murals and a mini-fountain in its center.

Took us a couple of hours to get to Mom and Dad’s place, where we’ll be relaxing for the weekend – Mom’s even nice enough to keep us from doing any chores.

We got blizzards from Dairy Queen as a late-night dessert treat.
