Our young friend in Galveston, Texas, stops by for an update on what's been going on in her life.

February 16, 2009 (President's Day), Galveston, TX, 10:56 a.m., C.S.T.~

Dear Journal~

Howdy!  It's me, Teeka Daniels!  I hope this finds y'all well!  I am doing a lot better than I was since last fall, when (Y)Ike threatened to destroy my life! 

We are back in our house; we haven't had any more trouble, thank the Lord; however, I miss my granny Dubin.  She was disabled; yet she refused to leave when Hurricane (Y)Ike came callin'.  She died in that storm; it was a very hard tiime for all of us.  Still is.

Christmas would have been nicer had she been there. 

Now it's February, just past Valentine's Day.  On Friday, our school had a party; got tons of Valentine's Day cards from friends, and pigged out on cookies, punch, cupcakes.  Yum!!  :)  It was fun!!

Then on Saturday, Valentine's Day, my brothers, sisters, and I gave mom and dad the day off.  We did all the chores, let them sleep in.  Then we made them breakfast, gave them cards and flowers.  They loved it; they said we were very good kids!

We must have been 'cause when we got our allowance yesterday, we got five extra dollars!  We got $10 instead of the customary five!  So now we all have a bit of extra cash!  That's cool!  :)

I am busy at school, trying to get my homework assignments done, turned in on time.  Sometimes it's hard, especially when my little brothers (G-Man and Tyler) and my sisters (Emrika and Hydeiah) keep buggin' me!!  I get so annoyed I want to slug them a good one!!

Daddy and mama are still working, but for how long, that remains up in the air.  The economy is very bad, and I worry what may happen if their place of work lays them off or shuts down.  I just wonder if that happens, how they're going to get the extra money to pay the bills; but for now, things are okay, at least for us.

Many other people aren't that lucky.  I just hope we get a stimulus check; that would really come in handy, especially if money was tight!!

I don't know if I like our new president or not.  He seems like a nice guy, but some of the things he believes in or has done has me wondering about him.  I guess I need to give him a chance; a lot of my friends think President Obama will be good for America.  We shall wait and see!

Today we aren't at school.  Holiday.  President's Day.  I didn't get up today until nine thirty; it felt soooo good to sleep in!  I didn't want to get out of my nice, warm bed!!  It was nice!!  I don't know what I'll to today; maybe I can talk mama into letting me go to the mall with one of my friends from school.  My money is talkin'; I'd love to get a new book or CD!  Been a while since I last did that!

The weather here is pretty mild, temps in the seventies.  Pretty typical, maybe a little above average.  I'm just glad hurricane season is overwith:  after (Y)Ike, I don't know if I could put up with another hurricane or the heartache it (he) caused us!  Once was more than enough; I'm more than ready to move to Alaska, where the only storms are magnetic (i.e., the northern lights)!!

Well, my brother Tyler is calling me (I call him Ty-Ty for short), so I'll run along now.  Until later, this is Teeka Daniels signing off; I'll write in here again soon!  I promise!  Take care, and may God bless you!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your Galveston, TX., friend, Teeka Da'Sha'e Daniels.  :D

Glad that Teeka and her family are doing well, but sorry about her Grandmother, I know that has to hurt, I have mixed feelings about President Obama myself, but I am believing the best for our country

The perfect write for President's Day - great penning as always!!

Backing President everybody does, but I hope people don't sit down and expect the man do the country's recovery all by himself!
Now, when you get instead of the customary five dollars allowance, pretend that was it, five, and set the five for a rainy day, when you really really need them. That is to be smarter than everybody else!

Glad things are going well for Teeka and her family, what with the economy: hopefully, her parents won't lose their jobs. Think her and her brothers and sisters did good, letting their parents sleep in and giving them breakfast in bed. :) Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
