Once the week was over, I was bale to leave school and head home. The drive was not bad. A lot of the construction that was going on was done so that was nice.
It was a little hard when I got home. It was not like the other times where everyone is happy and we all pile into the car and head up to my grandparents house that live 15 minutes away. Everyone was still sad and when we did go over to my grandparents house, my uncle was not there to give me a big hug, happy to see me home and ask what all is going on at school. My family is struggling a bit with trying to "get back to normal". I will be honest, it will probably take a long time for that to happen.
However my family still tried to have some fun with me being home for the break. The first night we rented a movie. It was a horror/thriller movie and I do not like those at all. I still watched it but I am still not going to go out and watch a ton. Maybe once a year would be okay for me.
The next day was a little shopping with my parents and just a lot of looking at different things. It was also dinner at my grandparents house. We had roast beef and it was delicious. Dinner at my grandparents house is always fun.
Sunday was really cool. We had our normal Sunday routine and then when it hit 4 o'clock, we went to a soft opening to a new restaurant that is really close to my house. Now how did my family get invited to a soft opening to a new restaurant you may ask. Well we know the owner. The owner is one of my brother's best friends. We've gone to many of this guys restaurants.The new one is called Fast Eddie's. Their site is not up quite up yet, but you can find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Fast-Eddies. They serve great food and the staff is wonderful. You ever in the area, I recommend you go there.
On Monday me, my mom and my grandparents decided to go to Amish country. It is so nice there. It kind of reminds me of school with all being open fields and smelling the barn animals every where. We went to this place called Heini's Cheese Chalet. They have really good cheese and fudge. They have a lot of other things too.

We went to a few bakeries and shops that had a lot of cute things. We went to this one store called Tis the Season and it is all Christmas in there. It may be too early for it but I have always wanted to go and so we went. So much Christmas in one place. I loved it!! After that we wanted lunch and went to the Der Dutchman. Such good food there. They also have this honey peanut butter spread for their roles that is so delicious. Me and my mom could just have that and nothing else and be every happy. This was the view we had from our table.
The weekend went by real quick but I had a good break from school. I will be happy to go back to see friends and all but not looking forward to the homework and tests.
