my youngest, rayny, turns 8 years old tomorrow. we decided to celebrate this weekend. we had decided to not do a big party due to finances, but instead we focused on some kewl presents and he had his friend, rowan, spend the weekend. we loaded up rae's van with the kids yesterday to take them to see the latest harry potter film only to find it sold out. so tickets for this morning's show were bought. since we have already done the cake and icecream, i am thinking of getting cupcakes to take to his school when i get out of class tomorrow.

rae and willow also spent the night last night. apparantly, rae and mark thinks the little girl has me on radar. i had fallen asleep on the couch and willow started fussing. her mommy told her to get a little louder and that i would get up. they said i jumped up less than 2 minutes later. they were amused. *smirks*

i busted 4 kids inside of rae's van yesterday. they ranged between the ages of 6-8, with the 8 year old already having a huge chip on his shoulder. i really don't think they were trying to steal as much as being bored and looking for something to do. they were going through and openning up whatever cars they could get into and rummaging. there is a fine line in my neighborhood and sometimes it lacks definition. the last thing i wanted to do was call the police. at the same time, the worst thing would be for me to let them run off without any consequence. so i grabbed the closest bike to me as they start to run off only to find out that one of the others was his 'big' 8 year old brother who proceeds to try to run me over. perfect opportunity to grab his bike. "get off me old woman!" i made him so mad that he jumped off of his bike and went to find something to hit me with. so i have this little kids' bike and am taking it towards my apartment so that i have some leverage to find out where they live. it worked and i ended up talking to the auntie since their mother wasn't home.

i don't know. i wish that situation was handled 'better', but i don't know how i could have/should have handled it better. something with a positive impact. *sighs*

i'm really looking forward to moving this summer.
