I rode my bike

everywhere today. It was pretty cool. I didn't have much of a choice,though, for 2 reasons.

1. gas prices are ridiculously high
2. We didn't have a car

I picked up one of my younger sisters from a birthday party on my bike. It only took one trip. When I went to pick up my other little sister from her friend's house, I got there and realized I had forgotten the house number. So, I had to go all the way back home to get it and then I went all the way back to the house my sister was playing at to pick her up. Later on I was working a concession stand and when I was done I walked home. I was glad because none of these places I went to were over 5 minutes away :). It was fun to be able to get places on my own, though. I'm not old enough to drive yet, so I felt powerful and in control :D.

My mom made Empanadas today. It was her first time, and they were delicious. We aren't Mexican and she didn't learn from someone who was Mexican, so who knows whether it was an American version of an Empanada or not. Either way, it was delicious and I had 1 too many. I was going to try one with Nutella(which I LOVE!!!) on it, but we didn't have any so I melted chocolate chips and spread it on top. It was yummy!
