Fresh Fish and Seafood for Dinner Please, All of that.

So I'm back home, still not unpacked. I can't find my straightener anywhere, along with half of my life. I took a picture of my crazy room and was going to show you but, of course, I can't find my connector thing for my camera to the computer. So I will show you some other pictures maybe.

Anyways, my job for the summer is staying with my grandfather because my grandmother died in March and he gets really bored being alone, and he also doesn't know how to do the laundry and stuff like that. Sooo... I stay entertained all day long. I go up to his house which is next door at 9am and do dishes and he goes to his office from 10-1 and I shower, chill, do homework and chores and then when he gets back we go on walks or do errands.

This is granddaddy and me. I absolutely adore him.

He is HILARIOUS. He answers the phone, "Doo Drop Inn, How may I help you?" or something like that and he confuses the heck out of people.

Yesterday I tried to call his cell phone but he didn't answer, so then I called the office and talked to him, and he explained to me that he was pretty sure his cell phone didn't have to be on for it to ring. But, I tried to assure him that he should leave it on in order to get calls. I still don't think he understands.

Tonight we went to J Alexanders for my parents' anniversary and the waitress asked what Granddaddy wanted and he said "Fresh Fish and Seafood," which was like the title, like "Appetizers," "Salads," etc. Then I tried to ask which of the fresh fish or seafood he wanted, and he said, "I want a little bit of everything." I didn't know what to do. It was really awkward, and the waitress was so confused. I finally just got him to order shrimp. Then laughed about it later. But, I'm telling you, some of these situations are just plain awkward.

My sister's friend's mom was over at our house today and he walked up and grabbed her and started dancing with her. He had no idea who she was, I guess he just felt the urge to dance. Luckily, she laughed. And we all laughed.

He really keeps me entertained. And he keeps me busy. When he can't remember something, he flat out tells people that he has the early signs of Alzheimer's and it makes people feel awkward.

I really need to get unpacked and get my life in order. I am supposed to get done at g-daddy's at 5 but he doesn't like to be alone so like last night I stayed till 8; therefore, I get nothing done at home. Not that it's hard, I really do have fun.

Since I have no pictures of my room or dinner tonight, I'm going to show you a few of the things that I'm excited about this summer.

This is my adorable little cousin Bryan who lives next door and helps my dad with his garden. I am pumped about chillin' with him this summer. And about the garden too-I'm ready for some fresh vegetables.

The church we go to in the summer. It's just a summertime church, and I love it. It's realllly old, the windows are open the entire service, and there is a bell in the front that the little kids ring at the end of the service.

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I'm going to stay on top of this this summer, but I just got swamped with things to do for a couple of days. Hopefully everything will slow down soon because I don't want the summer to fly by me. I need it to last for a little while before school work begins again.
