hmm well can't let a good thread die now can we
i've been awol on here lately, went home to my mother's this weekend--stupid idea. all they ever do is make me
!! When i got back, my mom called me and was talking about xmas, what we planned to do etc.. I'm thinking "yeah right". the last time my dad spoke to me was two weeks ago, and among other things he said that this baby isn't his grandchild, my DP is a punk, and I'm not his daughter anymore. i reminded my mother of this, and she laughed it off, saying i was too sensitive! i hung up on her.
We finally got fed up with the school system and pulled Ian out last week. He is thrilled to death, lol--so far, I am letting him just veg out, sleep in, and generally decompress--and he's a different kid completely. More cheerful, not whiney and angry toward his sister so much, it's great
i've generally just had a stab of emotions lately, spent a decent part of yesterday crying about...umm...i wasn't even sure! but talking on the phone to DP helps tremendously
He has to stay in Germany til he can get his surgery done there, hopefully ASAP, so as soon as that's scheduled I'm buying a plane ticket...going out of country for the first time in my life, alone and pregnant heh. That should be interesting. But his surgery is scary stuff--he's got a brain tumor, and recovery will probably take longer than i can even stay there with him--but I wouldn't dream of letting him deal with that alone.
In other news, an OLD friend from when i was 16 randomly found me, and we talked on the phone yesterday. I had let the friendship die b/c to be perfectly honest, she seemed like a train wreck waiting to happen, her life was so messed-up.
Well, she's doing AMAZINGLY well now--went to college, bought a house, finally came out and is in a great relationship, is taking great care of her two kids, and omg she's even crunchy. LOL.
