Due to my....uh...outburst, Mom's decided that it is time for us to go home. She's been looking for an excuse to leave for weeks, but she was too nice to say anything to Aunty. My extended family is a stiff and snobbish and have been driving my parents insane. But I'm happy. The faster I get back to Konoha, the more I get to train. (and see Sasuke-kun!!)
Not to say I haven't been training here, but I haven't been able to train during the day at all due to getting stuck baby-sitting. Oba-san just seems to think I have this magical patience with children...bleh. I've been forced to do what little I've been able to do of my training at night, in the forest behind the household. Which means I'm extremely tired in the morning, which means I have even less patience with the seven Haruno cousins under the age of 5 that I have to babysit. Thank heavens we're leaving.
But anyways, coming home to Konoha soon. Must remember to buy a flower at Ino-pig's shop for Iruka-sensei's belated birthday present. Wonder how much trouble Team 7's gotten into without me...
I don't see why everyone sees these journals as troublesome. If Tsunade-sama has asked all of us to do it, it has to be important...or something like that. Anyways, I'll just do it. Life has been somewhat dull [understatement] around here. 'Here' being with my extended family. I used to be happy about this sort of thing, being with my family and not having any training, but ever since the Chunnin exams I've decided that I really have to start to work really hard. I'm not a prodigy or any kind of genius, but that doesn't mean I can't become a stonger kunoichi and protect the people I care about. I mean, not only have I just been watching Naruto and Sasuke's back for WAY TOO long, but Ino-pig almost beat me in the Chuunin exams! That is SO WRONG on so many levels!
Hear me now! INO-PIG ISN'T GOING TO BE A BETTER KUNOICHI THAN ME!!
...Oh dear. I do think I accidently said [screamed] that aloud. Family is giving me odd stares. Must go.
