Hey all, thought I'd drop in. Seems like everyone is doing well, with the usual day to day and sometimes family BS!!! WE're good here too. I've been working a little more lately since it's flu shot season and I've been doing clinics, but this year I only have 5 which is not too bad compared with last year's 12!! Anyway there's no way we could swing it this year with limited child care options. Last year my grandma was well enough that we could have her watch evan anytime, now she's not watching him at all, her health is just too poor right now. So we've rearranged and had to bite the bullet and put him in daycare just on mondays which isn't too bad. But it took him almost 7 weeks (mondays) not to cry all day there. Last week and this week he was actually happy there and had a good time. So that's good. Other family BS news is with my poor sister. She's 16 a junior in high school and lives in Arizona with my mom and her dad. They don't let that kid do anything normal, and it's a shame cause she's a damn good kid. Now I'm not talking about them not letting her stay out till midnight, have sex, do drugs etc, no I;m talking they won't let her donate blood at her school's blood drive (her health occupations club is putting it on) and they won't let her participate in a nursing internship program another high school is offering next year. No donating blood because my mom can't be sure they're acually certified nurses taking it and no internship because "she's not driving all over town, and you can't prove it's required for college" my mom is seriously mental. I've looked into her "behaviors' and I think she's got boderline personality disorder, which basically means one minute your nice and the next minute you're an irrational bitch, and very controlling. I won't get into a lot of specifics, but she can get fucking crazy with the bitchyness, and I'm not talking a little PMSy this is real irrational shit, and the more you try to reason with her the more crazy she gets. She has no idea how hard my sister is trying to be competitive for college, she wants to move back here and go to UW so bad, and neither my mom or her dad went to college, they have NO idea the competition just to get in. They think she just fills out a form and goes off to school. I went to live with my dad when I was 13 so my mom had absolutely no par t in my college education, and even if she did, I started college almost 15 years ago, it's so much tougher to get innow She has no idea the edge this internship would give my sister, and to boot, there's a classmate already doing it that would be driving so my sister woudn't even have to drive!!! Ok I'm done ranting about her, but my sister's right, the more bullshit they put her through, the less she's going to want them to be a part of her adult life. They've already told her they're not giving her any money for school, so she's probably just going to break ties, move back here and say fuck off!
Anywhoo, Evan's going to be a vamp this year for halloween, here's a picture of him not too happy with the bat on his shirt!!! Hopefully on friday we can convince him to wear it!! Hope everyone is well! Miss everyone!!
