So this past week has had its up and downs. I stayed home all day Monday through Wednesday, enjoying the last few days with my brother before he started kindergarten. Then Thursday, I went with him to be the surrogate mother, my mom had work (she's a school teacher) and it was so sad! I was not expecting to cry and was doing fine while they talked to all the parents in the classrooms. Then it came time to tell him goodbye. I was holding it together, even though my heart was breaking, until he said, "Bye Ashley. Go away, so I can learn." I barely made it out of the school before I was sobbing. I missed him all day, missed the TV blaring Cartoon network in the background, the toys scattered all across the floor. But then he came home and told me what a wonderful day he had, and then I was okay.
Friday, I had a quiet day at home, and that evening my entire family went out to eat to celebrate the first week of school. Of course, only four of them had gone back to school, while three of us (my older stepsister, me, and my younger stepsister) don't start classes until the 23rd. Then we went home and had a nice bonfire, while I was eaten alive by mosquitos.
On Saturday, I had gotten up early to go cheer on my little cousin in his first 5K. He is only six, and loves to run! He ran the 5K in 31 minutes, but would have been faster if he hadn't been scared of crossing the road. They had blocked it off, with firetrucks and police officers. A cop was telling him it was okay to cross and he said he couldn't because his mom wasn't there! After he crossed the finish line, he drank half a bottle of gatorade and went to play on the playground, while the teenagers were dying and out of breath. After the awards (where he placed second in his age category 9 and under) he asked if he could run it again!
We didn't do much the rest of the day, just went back home and hung out. Then yesterday, my mom, stepdad, and I drove to Berea (where my stepsister goes to college) and helped her move in. It was crazy! We got there and ate lunch (which was delicious but we regretted it later), but it took almost an hour to get our food! Then again we were in prime after church lunch traffic. Then we all drove over to her dorm, and she wasn't sure if she was supposed to even be there. Finally we got it all sorted out, she was supposed to be there, and started bringing in her stuff Looking at how much she brought, it made me look like an over-packer when I go back to school! But then again she was in a small single room, and forgot several things at her house. Because her school is only about an hour or so from mine, we are taking some of her forgotten stuff down to her when I move in next Sunday.
Speaking of which, I better go. I have several things to do today to prepare for the move-in next week. I hope you all have a fabulous week!

This past week was crazy! On the 1st, Falon (my roommate) moved into our dorm. I drove down and helped her, and came to find out that we didn't not get the room we were supposed to. My roommate is an RA and in the hall we were assigned to the RA's are supposed to have the bigger room in our suite. We instead got one of the smallest rooms (due to technical difficulties last semester), so We had to come up with some new ideas to fix the room. I wasn't able to get a picture of the room before hand, but once we get it fixed and decorated I post a picture of it.
The rest of the week flew by with little incident. Then Saturday rolled around. My sister and I were supposed to go see Pentatonix at the Ohio State Fair. Our mom drove us, so she could drive us home after (my family doesn't like me to drive late at night and I'm not old enough to check into a hotel). We first stopped by Ikea, so I could find this desk storage I wanted. It was my first time being in Ikea, along with my sister's and my mom's, and we loved it! It was a little crowded, but the prices were good and it was so neat seeing everything! I also picked up a light-up mirror, and my mom picked up a couple things she wanted. So we head to the self-service area where you pick up the boxes with the big pieces of furniture, to find out they were out of my desk storage I wanted.
After Ikea, we went to go eat at Cheesecake Factory. It was fantastic, but we spent more money than I thought three people could at a place like that. After that we went to the fair to find our seats for the concerts. The opening act , Us the Duo, was late to the stage by thirty minutes, and after their spectacular performance, PTX was late to the stage by 45 minutes. Other than the long wait, me and my sister had a great time!
That was my crazy week, and if you have any suggestions or ideas of what you would like to see please leave them in the comments below.

Also don't forget to share this blog on any social medias, and if you want to keep up with my daily life, you can find my social media links on either the home page or the about page. Have a fantastic day!
I will try to post a blog every week, if not every other day. It depends on what happens during the week/day, but I will post every week. It just that some weeks may seem boring, which is where I will blog about the week and then will provide an anecdote from my childhood. That's besides the point, I hope you enjoy reading!
