This morning I have learned that I have an AMAZING boss, she offered for me to take Friday off to stay home with my kiddos (see above post on crazy grandma). She is just awesome, and although I probably won't take off-just try to find other accommodations, the fact that she offered was pretty great. Unlike any other leader I've had.

Also, I only wear a watch at work, but MAN I sure do miss it when its gone....I've looked at my bare wrist about 16 times so far.

That despite my professor being barely one step above useless this semester, I am rocking an 87% (I hate not getting an A, but at this point I'm just happy to be passing and at the end). It makes sense when I found out said professor is on probation due to student complaints and grades (one would think they would make an effort to correct these issues in an effort to not lose their job?)

That parents will sink to lows that still surprise me, despite all of the terrible things I have seen them do. I had a "Mother" who "lost" (AKA threw away) her dead son's ashes just so the Father couldn't have them.. He is a good Father who has always worked hard to take care of his kids. Meanwhile she can't manage a pile of rocks. This event was revenge for him not sending her extra money for HER bills, despite the fact that they are divorced and that his child support for their other child is already paid ahead for several months due to her "borrowing" money. That honeslty just made me sick to my stomach and so angry I could have become violent had I seen her. Him, he was just heartbroken and cried and cried.

I learned, actually re-learned, that grief sneaks up when you're not expecting it. Today is 1 year since my nephew committed suicide. All last week I was in a horribly nasty, b*tchy frame of mind & couldn't figure out why. Yesterday I realized what the date is. Now all those feelings make sense. It's very hard when anyone dies suddenly but when it's a 26 year old with a wife & a 2 month old baby, there's no making sense of it. I just wish we lived closer to my sister so I could be with her today.

Im so sorry Poppy, hugs to you.

I feel the same. I went for a run Saturday but had to wear somewhat warm gear because I'm still recovering from my cold. It's a little ominous. This weather is very peculiar, even for Indiana.

Michigan is having the same 60 degree weather. Just strange.
