Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house...

Yesterday my roomate and I received a small miracle. We were at our regular Tuesday meeting inside the community room (since it was cold and windy)and there was a Christmas tree sitting there which was taking up too much space. So they were discussing whether to put it outside or whatever and I said I'd take it. So low and behold no one else wanted it so my roomate have a $70 Christmas tree in the window in our living room. Then a neighbor came over and gave us a whole bunch of ornaments and lights that someone had left in his apartment. He even brought over a star that lights up for the top. It is funny how a small thing can bring so much excitement.

I went to work Saturday and my client sent me to the market to buy her some cleaning products. So when I came back I did a whole lot of cleaning. That morning I did her laundry. On Sunday we had quite an adventure at her church. She uses a wheelchair and we are driven by a paratransit van to and from places. Well the van home didn't find us and we were stranded at her church. She was very pissed off and told them that she wouldn't wait two more hours for another van to come for us. She told them that she would find another way home. The only thing was that she didn't have that impression after she hung up with them. She thought that they would be there at three. Anyway we waited then I finally called and they said she had cancelled the van. So I pushed her until we reached a place where she could eat. Then we caught two buses home. All total we took two hours getting back to her house. But as soon as we walked into her house it was five and it was time for me to go home.

Guess what I am so stoked. I actually was given a grant to go to UCLA extension this winter. I think my class starts in the beginning of January. It is a class in Screenwriting. Wow I really can't wait. I have to look up the class to see what time it meets.

I am going to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day with a friend who doesn't have any family to spend Christmas with. She displayed interest in going to the Holiday performance downtown at the theater center. It is on Christmas Eve. On the day of Christmas we will go eat somewhere.

I went to borders books and got a book with designs in it to help me make crafts and art. I also bought a book on earth angels by Doreen Virtue and a really cute pink journal which is spiral bound. I think it helps me to have a pretty journal to write in.

My next movie to watch is Mad Hot Ballroom. I will probably watch it today and make enchiladas.

Take it easy or not at all.
