11-18-18 (I meant to post this on Sunday, sorry friends!)
This morning I slept in until almost 11 am. It felt so nice to sleep in because I haven’t slept very well, like I stated in my previous posts. I do kind of feel bad though because I wasted my morning sleeping when I could have been spending time with my grandma. So the rest of the “morning” consisted of gathering christmas decorations and a tree to bring back to my apartment. I also packed up some more winter clothes and my laundry to bring with. I decided that I would leave my grandma’s house at about 2:30 pm because my grandpa had to fix one more thing on my car. In the meantime while I was waiting, I decided that I would do a fun project. One thing that I really wanted to give out for Christmas gifts this year is sugar scrubs. I want to do this because being a college student, I’m very low on money. So making a homemade sugar scrub for the girls and women in my family would be perfect! I found the idea on Pinterest! All you need is a cup of sugar, ½ cup of coconut oil, and 10-20 drops of any baking extract of your choice! You can even add food coloring to make it look prettier. Sugar scrubs exfoliate the skin, get rid of dead skin, and leave your skin super soft. I use a sugar scrub when washing my hands, and before I shave my legs. I can’t believe I haven’t made these scrubs sooner. So to use up my grandma’s coconut oil, I made four different kinds of sugar scrubs. I made a pink strawberry, a blue vanilla, a green peppermint, and a white coconut sugar scrub. When I was done, I loaded up all of my “crap” and departed for Rochester. As I was driving towards Spring Valley, I decided to take a scenic road home instead of taking highway 63 back home. As I continued further down the scenic road, that road conditions become worse and worse. At one point, a fire truck was parked in the middle of the road, having people turn around. So, I turned around and got on highway 63. Once I arrived to my apartment, my roommate Amanda and I unloaded all of the “crap” in my car. Eventually, I unpacked my things and cleaned my room again. Somehow whenever I pack and unpack, my room becomes a disaster. But, that is what happens when you have a tiny room. After I got my room cleaned, Amanda and I decided to set up our Christmas tree. We haven’t decorated it yet because Amanda didn’t think my decorations were good enough, so she is bringing her own decorations. We both felt kind of lazy tonight so we decided to eat chips, ice cream and watch a movie. At first, we had been watching the new Cinderella, but neither of us would pay attention. So we changed the movie to the Disney “Descendents” movie. I thought the movie was pretty good. After the movie, all of my roomates and I got ready for bed. So, nothing really interesting happened today.
