vacation has started...actually started last Friday. so far, I've installed some blinds at my Mom and step-dad's house and met a friend for dinner. the part that bites is this friend is someone I would love to date. except she said how she started seeing someone. someone she was friends with, so she decided why not.

yet not really surprised by this...

I miss chat a lot.

sister called me today. my cousin (technically my Mom's cousin, so I guess 1st or 2nd cousin) was in a car accident today. she hit a pole. they believe she had a heart attack or something before she hit the pole. she did not survive.

so another funeral in about 2 or 3 months. have I mentioned I hate funerals?

also will only go...

Stay strong

yesterday was Father's Day...and something I realized.

there are no pictures I know of where I'm young and with my bio-dad. guess that happens when you leave your child at 9 1/2 months old and don't return to his life until he's in 3rd grade.

oh well, such is life. it helped shape who I am. I won't...

about a month ago, my aunt died. she was 62 with Cerebral Palsy and medical issues. as my sister and I agreed upon...it was a "natural" death. it made sense.

What we (mom and my sister) did not realize is she started a Genealogy of our family.

and now I have a PDF scan of what she has. so at least I can find...

Very important that you found out

so my sister had her surgery. things went good. now its the waiting game to see what the biopsies say. she had a lymph node and a tumor removed. thankfully both were less than 1 CM.

waiting games do suck, though.

well, its been a while and things have definitely been interesting the past few weeks....

about 2 weeks ago my mom texts me to tell me my sister (age 45) has breast cancer. 2 lumps, same side, less than 1 cm, and nothing in the lymph nodes. also the first person in our family to have breast cancer....in fact, the only other person in...

doing laundry at the laundromat and watching people leave the carts everywhere after using them (and 1 lady using 3 of the 6 carts for herself) really irritates me.....

then shopping and seeing how people leave their carts everywhere just reinforces my dislike of the general population.

just saying.

so a week off (my job gives a tremendous amount of time off....about 31 days a year. and since I maxed out what I can carry over, I get to use that every year...nice!).

so I'm going down to Alfred University (where I graduated from) for a day. see the new Art Museum and such. haven't been there in 15 years...

so seriously thinking of spending the money on an on-line dating service (like Match.com). its been over 10 years with zero interest from anyone. I don't like bars or parties, and most of my friends are either not around my age, not in my area, or in a relationship. so it leaves me in a difficult situation.

plus the one person I have...
