Time for another journal entry and this might be a long one cause it's been awhile since I made my last post on here. I didn't do much on Christmas Eve. I stopped by my Mom's place for a small Christmas get together. I help set up my little brother's Google PC. He needed a Google Plus account for it because the PC mainly runs Google Chrome and it uses apps for Google Chrome. I did find a parental control extension for it. That way He doesn't go on to any sites that he is not suppose to be on. Google Plus is one of the sites that is blocked by it. He can still go to sites that he plays his games on. I gave my Mom and Sister some scratch off tickets for Christmas. I also got my nephew a little toy rattle that he can play with, but he had to wait awhile to play with it because at the time he haven't been born yet. Mom got me some items that I can use in the kitchen at my apartment. The next day I went with
and visited some of her relatives for he Holiday. My brother William a little bit after we got there. He got a kids compound bow for Christmas. We went to the back yard and shot a few targets with the bow. We ended up breaking a few arrows. Then again they're the cheap ones that come with the bow. Later We went to
's Mother's and Grandmother's place for a little while and then we went back to the apartment. A few days later I stopped by my Dad's after work. I picked up the Christmas gifts that my other relatives got me. My dad got me a crock pot for Christmas. Now I'll be able to cook chili and other slow cook foods. I might try to come up with and interesting chili recipe for a chili cook off in Washington sometime this year. Later that day I stopped by Wal-Mart to see if I can get the front 2 tires replaced on my car. Unfortunately they only had one tire that is compatible with my car. They were able to look up and see that the Fenton Wal-Mart had enough tires. So they set up a appointment so that I can get the tires replace after work in the morning.
Now here is the Biggest event that happened recently. Earlier in this entry I said that I got my nephew a rattle and that he had to wait until he was born to use it. Well on December 31st New Years Eve, My sister Alexis gave birth to a baby boy 7 lbs. 3 oz. His name is Nolan Cash. On New Years Eve I've became an Uncle. I was a little bit in the afternoon when I got the news. Normally I'd be asleep since I was working 3rd shift. I had too much caffeine and I was unable to fall asleep. Later that day I went over to 's and had a little New Years Eve party. It got a little crazy once it got closer to Midnight. One of 's relatives had a little to much to drink and tried to twerk. After Midnight we went to 's Grandmother's place and pretty much went straight to bed. I fell asleep pretty quickly cause of lack of sleep.
A few days ago we had the big snow storm in Missouri. The roads were so bad that I ended up staying at a Hotel that was close to work. Monday morning the roads looked drivable.
I had a little difficult time trying to get away from the side of the street I was parked on. The snow plows pushed a nice pile of snow next to my car. Once I got on to the interstate highway I notice that the roads were still very bad. I got about halfway home on the interstate when I came to a hill that goes into a turn was completely covered in snow. I tried to take it really slow. about a quarter of the way down the hill my back end begin to slide and I ended up doing a 180 spin. Luckily no one hit me and I was able to turn around and had no more problems on the way home. I woke up one Tuesday and discovered that my water wasn't working. I called my landlord and he said that the Water Meter was frozen and it was being worked on. Later that day the water was working again. The next day the water wasn't working. I get a call from my landlord and he said that a water pipe was busted and it should be fixed by noon tomorrow. Later I went to Wal-Mart and stocked up on Water in case it took longer to fix. The water is now working again
