8. .

  I walked into the kitchen and everyone was gathered at the table. I took my seat across from Josie and started to eat the mashed potatoes. Mom banged her fork on her plate, getting everyones attention.

  "Girls, as you know spring break is coming up in a weak." Mom continued. "And your Dad and I were hoping to go on a cruise for our anniversary. Sooo, you girls will be staying with Grandma Morrison."

  Well ya, I mean who else would we stay with considering mom was the only child and both of her parents died, and Dad was also the only child and his dad left them after he was born.

So all we had left was Grandma Morrison. Which, i'm not complaining, but I am a little bumbed because I was hoping to ride Blade all week.

"Ummm Mom. Who will take care of Blade? Because Grandma lives a whole half an hour away."

  "Well sweety, I actually have already talked to our neighbor. He has experience with horses so he will take good care of him."

 "No! Not creepy Steve Blunther! Ya, i mean he does have experience with horses but that's because he runs a slaughter house!"

  "I'm sure he'll do a fine job. All he has to do is put grain in a bowl and put him in the pasture anyway. Besides, we wouldn't put Blade in the hands of an irresponsible person. He's like family."

  "Ok. I'm just a little sad that i won't get to ride Blade at all during spring break. But, (i included not wanting to hurt dad's feeling's) a visit with Grandma Morrison's always fun!"

  "There you go sweet pea, that's the spirit, always look at the bright side!"

  After dinner I went to my room and automatically fell asleep, bumbed about how we'll be spending our spring break.
