{Time for a change!}

It seems like forever since I changed my blog layout. Remember when I did it every month? lol Yeah, clearly I've either gotten a life or gotten lazy...I'd bet on lazy if I were you o_o. So I guess I'll shop around for some new kits and see about making a new layout. Perhaps I'll attempt something new instead of just the same old layout with a different design lol. Who knows? I might be too lazy busy to do that much work.

My treat site is taking forever. D's dad was supposed to help me out with it because I don't know how to do that zencart thing that he swears by, but he hasn't been over to do it. Their store also fell apart and they have to move locations because of the douche bag guy that they were sharing the building with. Who knows when it'll be up. It'd be nice if he could just explain to me how to use it so that I could just do it myself, but no one does anything the easy way these days. We'll have to renew the damn domain before I actually launch it. *sigh* So yeah, that's what's going on with that.

In other news, I got a call from my dad on Monday afternoon. He said, "I'm in the hospital." I almost lost it. My father and I have never had a good relationship. He's a drunk and a drug addict and that's just how he has always been..always...as in my entire life. But that doesn't mean I don't love him, it just doesn't come quite as easy as loving say..my grandfather (whom raised me). Anyway- he calls and says he's in the hospital, he has congestive heart failure. I didn't want to cry on the phone, so I sucked it up (as he would tell me to do) and just asked the important questions, "When did you go in?" - Sunday. "Are you going to be OK?"- They have to run tests. My sister and I went to visit him on Wednesday and got more news. Not only was his heart going bad, but because it wasn't pumping enough blood to the rest of his body, his kidneys were shutting down. *Sigh* I almost started crying right in the hospital. But once again, I sucked it up. We sat there for a while and learned that not only does he have the heart problems, they can't really do many tests because he also has pneumonia! So his lungs are full of liquid and he can't lay all the way down. *Sigh* So there you have it. Until the pneumonia goes away, we know nothing. He also has diabetes, he has been border line for years, but now he has to take insulin and such. I hope that they can get this figured out soon, I don't want any other kind of call; unless it's one saying he has been released with a clean bill of health (which won't happen). So yeah. I'm not one for praying, I never have been, but if you could all send positive vibes his way..and maybe add him to your prayer list, I would be eternally grateful.

G is still having trouble at school. He is on Concerta for his ADHD but his teacher says he's not doing anything different, but after school he is much more focused. *Sigh* I really think that they don't know what they're talking about. He needs the special help, he's a shy kid, I really think some of the teachers these days just don't want to teach. They want the kid to pick it up quick and if they don't, they're a problem child. And they are so quick to say, "He should be held back" Well, sorry bitches but it's not going to happen. The last thing he needs to feel stupid because he has to stay in 1st grade when his friends are moving to 2nd. So it's just not going to happen, if that's their only solution then we'll just home school him.

So that's basically whats been going on around here. What's going on with you? ^__^
