Tuesdays are back on the calendar now

I actually did not have a bad Tuesday and that is great! I should have an even better one this week as I do not have to go to school! Yay, me!

Dad has surgery tomorrow, so I have to get up at like 0530 hours and who knows when I will get a nap. This also means that I will be doing Thanksgiving supper with NO HELP! Yikes! Dad is normally a really big help so this is gonna suck. He will be out of commission for a few days anyway. We won't go into the kind of surgery, suffice to say it is a man issue. We have to be at the hospital by 0700 hours and he can have a light breakfast. What the heck IS a light breakfast anyway??

He seems to be getting more confused recently, but I can't really tell if it is new or not. I will be taking him to his doctor on Wednesday and will say something then. I think maybe it is just that he is nervous about all of these appointments and does not want to miss any so he gets up in arms. Hopefully that is all it is.

I have three papers to write this break. One 5-7 pager, one 7-10 pager and one 12-15 pager. AND I have a project on Guatemala for Spanish class which I have to present orally on the 1st day of class after the break. I reckon I should just be happy that I do not have any other homework over the break and that I can concentrate on these papers and presentation.

Ryan is out of the hospital now and doing well, sadly I do not think it was a wakeup call for him. But we will continue to keep him in prayer and pray that he will come to the realization that he cannot go on as before.

Sadly, a friend of ours and her son-in-law were killed in a car wreck a few days ago. They had stopped to replace a flat tire and were getting ready to go when they were struck from behind by a drunk driver. It killed Viola Tolbert and Cody Spears instantly and put Viola's grandaughter and grandson, who Viola had custody of, in the hospital. Emily, the grandaughter, is still in serious condition but now off the respirator and Buddy is now at home with his Aunt. What a sad, sad story. Viola got custody of her grandchildren after her daughter died a year ago. So now the kids have lost their mom and their grandma. How much can one family take? Evelyn, Viola's mother is heartbroken and beside herself in grief. I cannot even imagine what she is going through. Please pray for this family. They need all the prayer they can get.

Buddy, our dog, has hurt himself and we really do not know how. He seems to be having problems with his hips and back. Guess if he is not doing better, we will have to get him into the vet soon. I would post a pic of him but he has an aversion to the camera. Every time I put the camera up to my face he hides. LOL

Danny and Yvonne seem to be doing well and will be here for Thanksgiving. They just got a wood stove to heat their house and have been frantically stocking up on wood for it. Danny is insistent that he is NOT going to pay the gas company prices to heat his house and is doing well not doing so.

Well, I guess I better get off of here and do my homework. Y'all have a great day and better week!

So, I don't like Tuesday's at the moment...

Last Tuesday I had a bad, bad, bad reaction to the flu shot, and this Tuesday I had an allergic reaction to orange juice in a cake that I did not know had it. So next Tuesday I am thinking I will stay in bed! rofl

School is going fine, and Dad is doing well. Not much going on here but school, toastmasters and church.

If you have a problem or fear with speaking, you should really think about finding a Toastmasters Club near you. It is an awesome club and they help develop leadership and speaking skills in their members. I cannot say enough good stuff about them! We JUST got chartered and it feels great!

We also need some prayers. Jim and C'Cie, my pastors, son was beat to within an inch of his life and had to have brain surgery last night. So far he is doing well despite having brain surgery and having had a seizure this a.m. Please say some prayers for Ryan and for Jim and C'Cie. Thank you!

The Election

So, I don't have much to say except that I have to keep reminding myself that it is God who is in charge. He "sets up kings (rulers) and deposes them." I am very worried about the turn our country has taken. It will take so little for it to become a socialist nation and that is not what the United States is about. I hope that we can come through this well. Please pray for our country, that it may bless God and God it. We have been so blessed for so long and we are seeing horrible things happen right now but if we will seek God, we can and will overcome.


The fence is still not stretched, Dad had his eye surgery and all is well with that, and I am still struggling through TU. Not much else going on except I had a bad reaction to the flu shot and am not going to class today. I am still very sick from it. It is the only thing I can think of that it could have been.

Off to do homework.
