I ended up going to bloomington on saturday to michael's graduation. long story...friday sam and i went out to eat after work at bennigans, then we were going to see "the family stone" and go shopping afterward for the "adopt a child" kids. in the parking lot at the movies sandra calls begging sam to take her to the graduation after she had abruptly cancelled on him the day before. sam refused of course, and then she went to plan b, which was for me to convince sam that he should go. anyway, it took a while but he finally agreed saying that he would go, but only if i went with, because he didn't want to ride all the way down with sandra alone...(sarah cancelled too)...well in order to make it to the graduation ceremony on time meant that we would have leave sandra's house a 4am...so sam and i had to skip the movie and went straight to walmart to finish the shopping, then stop by my house so i could change, and we finally got to sam's house at about 1:30a. i took a shower at their house as soon as i got there, so i managed to fall asleep around 2am, and sam woke me up at 3:45a...so you could imagine how exausted we all were. the trip down there in the car was incredibly uncomfortable considering sam and sandra had a HUGE fight right when we got in, so at the first rest stop, i went to the bathroom and when i got back sandra was in the backseat instead of the front seat. the rest of the way with me in the front seat was a little better, sam and i sang all kinds of songs, and i kept trying to include sandra in nonesence chatter, but she obviously wasn't feeling it. we finally arrive and meet michael at his old dorm and followed him to the assembly hall (basketball court). there were sooo many people (and this is the winter ceremony, i wouldn't want to see the summer ceremony!) me, sam, sandra, and julie sat on the 2nd level way hight above the middle of the graduation stage. the ceremony was beautiful and short, thank God! afterward we all went out to eat at the malibu grill (GREAT restraunt in downtown bloomington) a coulple of michael's friends joined us and we stayed there for a couple of hours and headed back home. we all were so exausted and irritated, sam was absolutely unlikable most the trip, and i was snoring the whole way home in the car. sam dropped off sandra at her house and went to take me home, when we finally made it to my house, poor sam was so tired he knew he'd fall asleep if he tried driving home alone...so he spent the night at my house. i fell asleep at 8pm and didn't get up for church till 8:15am. after church me sam, sarah, and marty went out to eat lunch at bennigan's. after that me, marty, and sarah spent the afternoon shopping at the mall for cruise necessities. when we were done we went to the movies to see "the family stone" (really cute movie, made me cry).
they dropped me off at 9pm. and i called bill (blind date, mom's friend), and we had such a great convo. he was really sweet, funny, and easy to talk to. he asked all kinds of questions about me and really knew how to keep the converstion flowing. anyways he wants to meet up, but didn't want me to feel like i had to rush it (by making it tuesday) so i think i'll wait a little longer for the acutal date. i'm not sure, but i knew that when it came down to it on tuesday i was really wishing my mom never set us up. anyways, he did call me monday morning, the morning after we talked, and left a message just recapping, and saying sorry he had to get off the phone for work and that he had a great time talking to me..blah, blah, blah....he's really nice and i'm excited to make a new friend, but anything more than that i'm just not interested in. i'm such a hypocrit! lol...whatever happens, happens...as long as it's the will of God!!
okay sick of typing..
