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!
