Today’s Drama

Well, today was pretty eventful. I got my blood test results back and I have a vitamin D deficiency. That’s not surprising, given how little I go outside. Apparently I also have to watch my cholesterol and take in a little more potassium. WEIRD, since I hardly eat any meat (and rarely red meat) and I eat a lot of bananas and melons. But, the important part here is that I don’t have any hormonal deficiencies so… there’s no medical reason for why I’m the way I am. Uh-oh.

A few minutes after I made it back home, my sister arrived to pick up my brother. We went out for a little while so she could teach me to drive. We went out to a pretty big and empty parking lot and I basically drove in circles and parked. I did pretty good when it came to parking. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to driving, though. I’m not skilled at multi-tasking so driving is actually pretty stressful for me! I’m sure when I pick up the skills, it’ll be much easier for me, though. I’m actually pretty thrilled and excited about the prospect of getting my own car and being able to go wherever I want whenever I want.

When we got back from the driving test, my sister and I checked out a few more houses out here but nothing really caught my eye. And then I heard the telltale cry of a young kitten. I’d know that sound anywhere since we’ve fostered two litters of kittens here in the past. Sure as hell, there was a small kitten about 5-6 weeks old and she was all alone near the corner of our front yard. Two men in a white work truck jumped into their truck and drove off, which led us to believe the jerks left the kitten there in our yard on purpose!

She was an adorable kitten, though!

Luckily, Jason is pretty good friends with a man out here who works with dogs. Recently, he’s expanded to kittens and since he already had a litter of kittens, he took her. I’m sure the little kitten will be much happier with other kittens. She seemed pretty lonely without her family, poor thing. I’m just glad we found somebody to take her because it’s not that easy to get people to take kittens–even as cute as they are.

I know I haven’t been writing much about, well, writing lately but that’s because I’ve hit a pretty big bump in my life. That’s why I’m learning to drive and I’m signing up for college classes for the summer. Hopefully these things will jumpstart my creativity as well!
