Reaux Delahoussaye here. Hope this finds y'all well. We are doing good; thanks for asking!
I am enjoying this weekend. No school until Monday, which gives me a day and a half left to do whatever I want. What makes this weekend even more special is that I didn't have any homework!! :)
Today, we, more or less, stayed home; I did get to see Reagan Patterson though; she was allowed to have lunch at our house, and we played all afternoon. She just left about a half hour ago, to go back to her house. I already miss her. We played Crazy Eights and Spider Solitaire; she whupped my heinie, but good!
I was not amused! LOL
I'll get her back next time; y'all just wait and see!!
I am ready to kill my brothers. Raun and Ryan got into my underwear, threw it on the roof again, for all the neighbors to see. I about died!! Now I know the Pacchini family knows I wear pink or red underwear!! I was never so embarrassed in my life!!!!
They also tied their bedsheets together, let it hang loose from their open window sill, and climbed down, before early morning light. Both were as naked as jaybirds: they wanted to go skinnydipping in the creek near our house. Then the police shined their flashlights on them; caught 'em cold turkey! They brought them back home; both boys were wrapped in big, thick blue towels.
Now they're grounded until maman says otherwise; they have to learn how to behave!! If you ask me, I personally think they're spoiled brats; maman and papa let 'em get away with just about anything but stone-cold murder!!
Ryan and Raun are always doing stupid stuff like that. They think it's hilarious to get things stirred up. If they aren't more careful, they're going to get a bad reputation 'round here and end up in jail!
Why can't they be more like Reaundra or Richelle? They may be older than me, but they're quiet and very well behaved. They don't boss me around; they're wonderful big sisters! I just love 'em to pieces!!
The weather here is humid, with temps in the eighties, with the threat of rain in the air. We've had a lot of that lately; in fact, up until just yesterday, we were under flood watches/warnings; our creek nearly overflowed.
When it gets high like that, it can get dangerous; in fact, last year, a little boy, aged three, fell into the roaring waters, and drownded. By the time firefighters and rescue people found him, it was too late: little Jimmy Oliver was already dead. It was a very sad time; ever since, adults keep telling us kids to stay away from the waters whenever they are swollen from too much rainfall.
I sometimes see the Oliver family in town; they still act like they're in shock. They can't talk about Jimmy without crying. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose one of my family members like that; it would be too horrible to even think about!!
We had a scare with grandmere' Alida last week: she had a seizure. Turns out she was allergic to one of the medications the doctor put her on for her heart; she had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance and everything. It was scary, but once the doctors and nurses got the seizures stopped, they sent her home once they checked her over. Now they know not to give her that heart medication anymore; it was like poison to her!
She's okay now, thank goodness; now we watch her like a hawk, to make sure she doesn't get sick on us again!
Last night we went to our high school's football game. They got beat by North Little Rock bad, something like 37-2. It was an ugly game; I felt ashamed to be a member of Hope High School! Then, when we went to get into our van, we found out that someone had spraypainted the opposing team's colors all over our van and slashed our tires. We didn't get home until way past midnight. Papa and maman were not happy at all!
Why do kids have to act so stupid?? I'm ten, and I wouldn't even think of doing something that dumb!! I know better; besides, my parents would kill me dead if I did that!!
Well, I am going to go. We're having potluck for supper: mystery meat and noodles smothered with tomatoes. Yum! Sounds good! I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Reaux Michelle Delahoussaye saying adios for now! Love y'all!
