It was the beginning of my Thanksgiving break. I thought it was going to be a great break. I didn’t have school for three days. I can finally just relax and not have to worry about studying. My best friend and I have literally planned this week for a month. Tomorrow was the first day of my supposedly awesome thanksgiving break. So I woke up to my sister blasting her music. This already made me in a bad mood. When I don’t get enough sleep I’m in a crabby mood all day. After I ate breakfast and did all of my morning things I went to my friends house. We decided to work on our science project that was due in a week, we were making a model of a cell. As I was adding the finishing touches to the project the paint spilled all over me. I had to run to my house and change quickly because I really wanted to go to the store. Once I changed I asked my mom if she could take us to the store and a usual she said she was too busy. Great!!! Now what was I supposed to wear at Thanksgiving dinner.
I went to to bed last night and had a horrible dream. I woke up in a cold sweat. It was 7:30 am. The rest of my family was still asleep so I decided to make myself an early breakfast and watch tv. As I was pouring my cereal into my bowl I realized I forgot the milk. I poured the milk without thinking and I didn’t realize that it expired. Chunky, smelly milk covered my favorite cereal. Tomorrow was Thanksgiving so I went to the store with my friend which didn’t end so well. I was in the store and I saw the perfect outfit. I went inside the store to see if they had my size and as usual they didn’t. I was devastated. I went to one of my favorite stores and I found something there, which I was grateful for. Afterwards, we decided to get some lunch. Once we got to the cafe the wait was an hour long and I was starving. When we were finally seated we ordered right away. As the waiter brought our he tripped and dropped all of it. This made us have to wait even longer and I was still super hungry. When my food finally arrived I ate so fast it caused my stomach to hurt. I ran to the restroom and puked.
After yesterday’s horrible experience I thought that today was going to be just as horrible. I was wrong Thanksgiving actually went by pretty smoothly. I woke up and got my breakfast, but this time there wasn’t any rotten milk. The whole day I was just watching movies until it was time for dinner. I changed into my new outfit and went downstairs to go greet my family and start to eat. I had an awesome time during dinner. I ate delicious food, hung out with my family, and even went back for seconds later on. This was a really great Thanksgiving and I realized on this day, as I’m eating with my family, I did have so much to be thankful for.
