Later, Mary Anne was over and she liked the poster that I showed her.

"That's really neat," said Mary Anne.

"I know," I agreed.

"You picked out the good choices," said Mary Anne.

"Thanks," I said.

"I have to leave now, it's almost time for me to go baby-sit for Jenny," said Mary Anne.

"Okay, see you tomorrow at school," I said.

"Bye," said Mary Anne as she leaves the house.

The next day, at school, Mary Anne was telling baby-sitting for Jenny was fun. She's the only who can handle Jenny. I'm used to do it, too. None of the others want to, but if they're free while Mary Anne and I aren't, they would have no choice.

I can't wait to start my weekend with my father next weekend. This is going to be fun. Otherwise decisions can be hard to make and I know I made the right one for the first step.

A week later, on Friday, it was a big day to visit my dad for the whole weekend. It was a fun one. Dad, Zoey, and I went off to Hartford after school and Mary Anne had permission to be with me.

"This is going to be a great weekend," said Mary Anne.

"I know," I agreed.

We stayed at a hotel. Mary Anne and I shared a room (we get to have our own). That was neat. Dad and Zoey has the other room. After we got settled in, we went through downtown. We had a great weekend. We went to see a movie, Dad and Zoey surprised me and Mary Anne by taking us to a play, and so on. On Sunday, we didn't leave until noon.

I stayed with my dad. I decided to stay there each weekend: from Friday after school into Monday morning so Charlie can get me after the meeting. I discussed that with my mom on the phone and she agreed with the idea to make it easier for me. Mary Anne didn't blame me for that either. I know I'm going to have with Dad and stepmom each weekend.

The End
