I can't catch up, so will start again from here. I tried the other night, and still have pages and pages to read.
I am back, I hope Stan has been behaving, but I am prepared to give him a kick, as I think it's mostly unlikely. I exchanged a few emails with him in my time gone, so I know he's still as bad as he ever was.
Life kinda kicked me in the gut a bit while I was gone, I came off Lucas and apparently had a seizure, so they have taken my license, which is an issue, as I need to take the kids to the office. I talked to the program manager last week, she would rather help me with driving than lose me, but it's a task to get things set up.
And I broke my thumb. I took a one day respite to go to Brad's second cousin's wedding, I am closer friends with her than he is. The bathroom stall doors had a spring back action, and I'd been drinking, and got my hand in it. That night alcohol was a great pain killer, since then, it hurts. I know they won't do anything for it, other than splint it, and who has time to sit in an ER all day. It was bent and I heard it crunch, so I know it's broken, also the pain tells me that it's a break. So Brad put the splint on, and I almost vomited all over him, while at my inlaws. Not my best moment ever.
Kids were helpful last night, not so much tonight, they lost patience, so two of them went to bed at 7.30, while the other two helped me cook.
You know, I've been gone a month and I have to come back with some crappy drama. Sigh. I wish it were not this way.
We had a fantastic vacation, I met my best friend, who I met through this forum but had never met in real life. I talk to Sandy24U every day, and have for years, and she came to our free vaca rental. It was wonderful to be with her and her kiddos. And I loved every second of that. She's exactly the redneck I thought she would be, and I loved every minute of being with her on the beach in her cowboy boots.
At this moment, I am only posting here, because of you all. It's been a month, and I haven't mellowed that much, but I'd like to stay in contact with you all, and read how you are doing.
