Well, Christmas is finally here and the hustle and bustle of the holiday has started. Right now the stores are having all sorts of sale for the last few days till the big day. But this year the big question is, “Is there enough money?” I just want to remind you that even though it is nice to have gifts under the tree, that’s not what Christmas is about. Christmas is being able to come together as a family and have a great time. Share some laughs with the family, sing some Christmas carols, and just let the stress fade away. You don’t have to agree with me but I do want to wish everyone to have a happy and safe holiday.

The Teen Advisory Group is about to begin a “Million Penny Fundraiser”. We are recruiting officers for the fundraiser. Responsibilities include advertising our penhy drive and collecting donations, as well as attending our TAG meeting each month. Not only would your participation help the library, but volunteer hours look great on college and job applications. Also, teens who collect 10,000 pennies will get a certificate of accomplishment as well as a book donated to the library in their honor.
If you are interested in donating, we will be happy to accept your donations at the children’s desk. If you don’t have many pennies, don’t worry; we will convert donations of different denominations for you.
Thank you for your support of the library!
Friday November 20, 2009 I went and saw the movie New Moon. This action-packed sequel was a wonderful movie full of adrenaline pumping action scenes and tear jerking moments. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to scream. I give New Moon two thumbs ups. The actors and actresses did a wonderful job in this film. Anyone that has heard anything bad of this movie cannot judge it by what everyone else says. You don’t even have to take my word for it. The only way to tell if you will or do like this movie is to go and watch it.
Minutes before I went to go see New Moon a friend of mine called and said that a friend of a friend that went to see it said that it was a bad movie, and she asked me if I would call her afterward and let her know what I thought. I called her and told her what I thought about it and she said she was going to go see it.
Again you can’t decide whether or not you want to see a movie based on what one of your friends says about it. Those who are reading this that have not seen the movie please don’t take my word for. Go and watch it for yourself. I personally loved the movie and I’m planning on going to see it a second time. Go and see New Moon if you want to find out if it is good or not, because only you know what kind of movies you do and do not like.
On November 17, 2009 I had to go to Cleveland imaging to get an ultrasound done. I had been having pains in my stomach area and my doctor thought it was my gallbladder, so she sent me to have tests done. Well the ultrasound came back negative so they sent me to have another test done. This is where the story really begins.
When the doctor called me back he had the look on his face that I always get because I am fifteen and over six foot tall. I had to laugh when he said, “Well it is rare that i have to look my patients in the eyes let alone look up the them”. By this time he had read my chart and said, “You’re only fifteen! How tall are you?”. Since I always am asked this I just gave my usual answer, “I’m over six foot and my brothers and dad are six foot six”. This surprised him and throughout the rest of the test he kept bring up my height, but nothing else really happened.
But it turns out that nothing is wrong with my gallbladder and the pains stopped. So all in all I have no idea what was wrong with me but at least I had a few good laughs along the way.
