Chapter 3

Jill usually gets home around 11:00 at night because she starts work around 3:00. She has a good job but I really do wish she was home more. I only get to spend the morning and half hour with her on weekdays because I get out of school at 2:30. On the weekends, she does a lot of housework and has to coach a volleyball team, that means I play with Sadie most of the time. She cooperates well when she doesn't get something her way. Edd does the usual. 

Monday. The worst day of the week... for kids. I go to middle school at East Park Village High School. It is a nice school but it has some of the worst people. Bridget picks on me. Claire knows everything about me since she stole my diary in the 5th grade. 9th grade is pretty rough even though it is already February... Well, almost February. 

My alarm starts to ring loudly and I get up out of my warm cozy bed to go to a thing called, 'school.' "Great, my alarm is late!" I said to myself. It said 6:10am. I had it set for 5:30. I take a shower in the morning and I actually eat breakfast. I look at the blade to my left. I pick it up and look at my wrist. 'Do I really wanna hurt myself...?' I think. I put it down. In the trash. I walk downstairs and look to see Jill is downstairs reading the paper. I smell a warm smell of coffee. Yummy. "Hey sleepy head!" Jill said excitedly. "The snowfall made me cold last night.." I said sleepily. "Well, you don't have to worry about that." Jill said. "What are you talking about?" I say with a grin. "Cause, Milly. You don't have school today or tomorrow!" Jill said. "Really!!" I say jumping. "Yes! Don't you see the snow! They said you might have off all this week!" Jill jumped up and down. "AHHH!!!" I screamed. No school is going to be much easier this week.

Jill got excited for small things. Even this. She is only 31. I would get to spend time with Jill this week now because she is off too. I go to the couch and lay down. I turn the TV on and all over the news, there is snow. EVERYWHERE. Jill comes and puts a blanket over me. I lie there and think of what luck went on through the town last night. Good luck I'll say. The best of Luck.
