~found out today that my dad is going into the hospital Friday for an angio-something-or-other on his kidney to remove the blockage there that is causing his blood pressure to go wacko. he will have a stint put in there. if it doesn't work or cannot be done, he'll have a bypass surgery (kidney area, not the heart). he's worried. I can tell. my (step) sister is driving to his place tonight to stay w/him & take him to the hospital in the morning. he may not make it to E's birthday party on Sunday. :(
~i have 3 regular girls i'm counseling at the high school now. i was supposed to have 8 kids, but alas the "permission slips" never returned. hopefully i'll pick up 1-2 more students over the semester. it's been an enlightening experience already. i knew i had an awesome childhood...but this just re-confirms it...these girls have ISSUES!! Girl 1 has a mom w/breast cancer, takes on the adult roles in her house and puts others before herself (like her loser boyfriend), Girl 2 took back her cheating boyfriend who is leaving for the military shortly...oh yeah and her mom is well, out there. Girl 3 mentioned that she may be pregnant by complete loser boyfriend...oh yeah and she took a test 2 months ago which was positive, then took another which was negative, then went to a doctor where blood was (supposedly) drawn and they told her they couldn't tell if she was pregnant...if you aren't confused now, you're doing good, because I was thoroughly confused after talking to her today.
~thankful for a 1/2 day at the HS tomorrow.
~going on a search for purple, green & orange M&Ms....you know, to match the Scooby Doo color scheme for E's party on Sunday!
~oh and I entered a football pool for the "big game"...ended up with some pretty good numbers so i'm keeping my fingers crossed.
