I know I've been absent from here for a long time and I'm truly sorry.  I hope to catch up on fics because I know that they are a lot of work and it's a gift that they are shared with us.

As most of you know, my husband died.  His official date of death is July 2, 2012.  He was in Hawaii so the kids, my parents, and I flew over for a memorial and the start of getting the affairs in order.  We had a funeral and burial here as well.  I'm elbow deep in paperwork, but am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  

Prior to the death, my youngest son was a victim of a violent crime.  We were in the middle of dealing with that when my husband disappeared.  The guys who did it have a court date on 9/24.  On one hand I want them to plead out so my son doesn't have to testify, but on the other hand, I want them to go to prison for a very long time.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get my life back to some sort of normalcy soon.  I appreciate all the love and support I've received so far.

So, oldest son is graduating from high school on Sunday.  I've been busy preparing for the family to arrive as well as putting his graduation party together.  Luckily for me I'm friends with local musicians, including said son, so the entertainment for the party is set.    If I haven't been around much to read fics and such, that's why.  After this weekend everything should calm down again.  However, he'll be leaving for college soon so I might be a wreck.  Or, I'll realize that the school is only an hour and a half away and be all strong about it.

I lost my dog to cancer yesterday.  One second she was fine, and then her stomach burst causing her to die instantly.  We were trying various treatments on her, but they didn't work.  The good news is that she wasn't suffering through any of it.  She'll be missed.

So, I go to the doc for the first time in 12ish years (ankle issues don't count) and I'm told, "Wow 42 and not on meds, that's amazing."  Really?  That's amazing?  What, we are all supposed to get medicated up?  My blood pressure was a bit high, but my co-workers think I should give it a few days and relax before I go in and get it taken again.  I told the doc right away that I'm going to do natural remedies to bring it down.  If that doesn't work, we'll see.  I'm under a bit of stress at the moment, but that will be fixing itself in a few days and I think that'll do it.

Now, my ankle is right now killing me.  I'm swilling a beer and it's getting better.  I remember back in the broken ankle days when I was on these pain meds.  None of them worked as good as beer.  I finally gave those up and just went for the sure thing.

Part of my BP issues is stress, soooooo instead of meds I'm thinking beer.  I mean, it calms me down right?  It kind of reminds me of a little song.

In Heaven there's no beer
That's why we drink it here
'Cause when we get up there
Down here they'll drink our beer.

Well, my oldest went to a program today at school and found out that he has..........ready......less than 1% chance at financial aide for college based on his dad's income.  YUP.  He and my other three are smart, driven kids but they don't get to go to college because we can't pull that amount of money out of our asses to pay tuition and we get no help.  What I don't get is why can't we get the loans?  Obviously we could pay them back.  It's bad enough that I might lose my job over the health care bill.  Now I can't even put my kids in college even though we've been saving since they were born?  FUCK IT ALL!!  I don't remember ever being this pissed off.  I've always supported our government but at this point I'm sooooo done.  If you are rich....cool, you can afford it.   If you are poor, cool, they'll help.  BUT if you are middle class Obama and CO. says bend over because we need milk for the poor.  WELL FUCK OFF!!  Sorry to my liberal friends who get to see their kids succeed, but I'm pretty PISSED right now and can't control myself like I usually do.

Is it just me or does there seem to be a lack of people using logic in the world today?  For example, let's say I see a cloud and I say, "Wow, look at that cool cloud, it looks like it's about to storm."  Somebody will reply, "Why do you hate rain?  I bet you hate trees too?  Just move to the city then."

It seems more and more, people are making outrageous leaps like that.  Now, when I was a kid I had to take Geometry in school that was supposed to teach logic using those long proofs.  Is that even a requirement anymore?

Today was awesome!  I woke up and listened to the Mudcats win while watching the Mariners win.  

After the baseball games, the kids and I went to play miniature golf.  We had a good time and it was warm outside.  We then went to my favorite dive for dinner where I was given a flower.

We got home and played uno go fast or something such as that.  It's Uno, but with an electronic thingy making you think fast.  We then pulled out pictionary and realized that we really aren't artists, but laughed constantly anyway.

After the games, we relaxed and watched a movie together. 

I guess I really loved today because as the kids get older, I realize that these times are going to be gone before I know it.
