The party went pretty well. There was pizza, cake, and a pi˝ata, among other things. I think this was Will’s first party where he had friends there. At least, it was the first that we had been invited to.
Nana saw Gretchen. She had her reaction that my family figured on, but she said she wouldn’t press the issue. It’s not that she doesn’t like animals/pets. She does like them. It’s just she doesn’t like when we get them, especially when we don’t have much money.
I thought of something today. I need distractions, like books, to keep my mind busy when I’m not at home, or even when I am at home, so that I won’t be as prone to thoughts of hurting myself. I just received lots of books from Kimberly, and that will help. But I was worried about what happens when I run out of books, so I thought about asking for y’all to donate to my paypal account so I can go buy some books. If you donate $2, I will run 1 468×60 banner, 1 100×35 button, and 1 88×31 button for 3 months for your site. If you donate $5, I will run 2 468×60 banners, 2 88×31 buttons, and 2 100×35 buttons for 6 months for your site. That’s a lot less than I charge to run that many ads. (Just buying 6 months of advertising for 1 468×60 would cost $8.) If you send $10 or more, I’ll advertise 3 of each size button/banner for the rest of the life of either this domain or of your site. If you don’t have buttons/banners, I can probably make them for you. (Oh, and Kimberly, since you sent so many books, I’ll do the $10 or more for you. Just let me know if you have the buttons/banners, or if I need to make them for you.) Just make the donation and then fill out the advertising form letting me know that you donated and which banners/buttons to use. čÖé
Now, I’ll probably get a lot of flack for that idea, or lose the respect of some people, but I thought I might as well see if anyone would participate.

Oh, and those of you who have blogs should really go join BlogXchng. It’s a little like Provance, for those of you who are familiar with that, only instead of giving you random sites every day, it gives you sites in categories you specify on either weekends, weekdays, or every day. It’s just a very cool service.
