Oh, I agree!

I asked the coordinator yesterday midday what happens if there's lightening and she told me the official options but then said that they've never had to cancel a beach baptism. Totally makes sense to me....

Here are the btches, btches. Someone else will have to take over for a while, I'm on the unemployment line for the next two weeks. Gotta try to find another job, I don't think this one is going to last much longer.

So, our chat with SIL went over like a lead balloon. It pretty much ended...nay, began, with her storming out of the restaurant.

Casual conversation about them switching schools and why do they think that it will be different socially. What if it's not? Her: "I'll just isolate myself even more. Us: That's not really an answer. If you're going to be a psych major, you're going to have to stop being so hyper critical of other people. Her: "I'll switch majors." That's not the answer, either. You need to learn to deal with people and make friends. Plus, your future husband here is going to be a pastor. Pastor's wife is a job in and of itself which requires you to deal with people diplomatically. Her: "What can I say? I'm a d1ck. I don't want to talk about it." (storms out of restaurant) And I thought she wasn't self-aware. Cue to us having a 20 minute convo with the fiance about it while she sat outside pouting.

Is she just young? Insecure? You and J are family, but behavior like this is likely to drive away a fiance.

Holy cow!

How did the convo with the fiance go? Is he as stubborn and anti-social? I don't mean to sound that harsh, I just can't think of another way to put it.

He doesn't handle stress well, either, but I think he's more aware than she is. More socially adept. He was mostly quiet. Said he'd talk to her. I think he'd be fine staying at their school if it wasn't for her.

She's just immature and coming off of a really sh1tty childhood. I don't think this guy is smart enough to run.

I am off to hear a Mariachi Opera in downtown Waukegan . Chicago peeps can understand how weird that sounds but for a $10 ticket at a refurbished historical theater, I'm game.
Wednesday I get to hear a Tango Opera downtown.
Its not Rush but it "still rock and roll to me" sorta.
The Genesee?

We've been there twice to see the Imagination Movers (a kid-oriented rock band) so Mariachi doesn't seem that weird.

That's only if he gets the job he's trying to get. But I'd still be dealing with the same sht. And that's assuming the powers that be even WANT me in that position.

On the train ride home on Friday, I was checking FB and my niece posted pictures of their flooded home in Elmhurst. They have a tri-level ranchy thing, with the garage and family room on ground level and then there is still a basement off of that room. The first pic was of water rushing down the stairs from the LR into the basement, that was already full of water. The road in front of the house was so flooded that water was just rushing in through the garage. It was sorta horrible to look at...

Then Saturday me and the girls spent 15+ hours in the car with the MIL, driving to and from roughly Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We might as well have driven to Florida. It got so bad, that the last time we stopped, my butt kept buzzing long after we were out of the car. It was like the car version of sea legs...

But the puppy is adorable and the girls were REALLY good (I did have to put a stop to the fourth viewing of Spirit: Stallion of the Cimeron. The soundtrack is by Bryan Adams and between that tripe and the road hypnosis, I thought I might just snap). The puppy settled in between the girls in her very little harness attached to the seat belt, like she belonged there. I got the feeling that it was like she was already part of the clan and she had just been waiting for us to show up.

So when we got home Dickie was watching The Hobbit and I was just about to go to bed when he comes in and says "there are spiders, mama! Will you come watch it until they're gone?" So I ended up watching the rest of that movie and didn't go to sleep until after midnight. I was so tired on Sunday that at about 11am, I passed out on the couch for half an hour. And then because I didn't see the first part of the Hobbit, I watched it again after the girls went to bed. Didn't go to sleep until after midnight again.

I'm a little out of it today and will be going to bed tonight no later than 9pm. I swear!

Also, very good Mia news. On Saturday, I gave her another appetite stimulant (she gets them only every three days), and by Sunday, she was eating like crazy. Not big amounts, but at least she was eating cat food the first time in two weeks she's eaten, really (other than cat treats, and late last week, she wasn't even eating those). She ate at least five times yesterday. And she ate this morning, then I took her to the vet where they checked her over and took out her stitches, and when we got home, she headed right for the food bowls and started eating some more.

Yay!

I think you're right about your assessment. I think she also feels overwhelmed by this new adult life and realizes she's illprepared for it.
