Yesterday my mom left me a note to say she would be home very late. That evening I was sitting at home on the porch trying to stay cool since the a/c is broken. I hear this party going on down the block with a lot of whooping and yelling. You know, a real drunken kind of bash. I thought I'd just go over there and crash, but I was about to step into the yard where a lot of people were dancing when I heard my mom's voice. She was one of them - the drunks, that is.
I backed out of there and went home, but I started worrying, you know? I couldn't sleep because she was over there drinking and sometimes she gets herself into trouble. I think it was about 3 in the morning when she came in, but what a mess she was. She'd already gotten sick at least once, I knew by the smell when she grabbed me around the neck and asked me to get her to bed. It took quite a while to get her cleaned up - twice of course, because she puked again 10 minutes after she got in. I guess I'm just glad she came home this time.
My summer isn't working out so well.

I really want to get out of here this summer. I tried to get a job so I could make some spending money, but my mom didn't get home to take me to the interview I had set up, so I don't know. I'll have to try again. If I don't have a job to go to, I'll just be stuck here at home alone all day. Watching television all day is really boring. It wasn't so bad when my sister was here, but she's been gone for more than a year. She couldn't wait to leave. I don't know if it really matters.
A couple of my girlfriends promised to pick me up sometimes. A couple of them have cars. They say we can all go to the lake and score some beer. Maddie promised to teach me to drive, but she said that before and she was a little tipsy at the time.
Still, at least I don't have to go to classes and listen to teachers for a while.
