bummed out

Oh how I wish the luck of the Irish would have fallen on me today! I got a call from one of our friends today. He is STILL in Iraq. His unit got bumped so they wont be home until some time next week! I so hate that!

Rusty and I are going to Vegas next weekend. He has to work the gun show. So I am going to go with him. I think that one of our friends is going to go with us, so that way I will have someone to hang out with all day while Rusty is working.

Kevin's cousin came out here for a visit, so they are staying here. I do not mind having the extra people here. I was happy to have the company today!

I also got a box from my mom and inside the box was a picture of my dad holding me when I was about 4 days old. I just want to cry. I so miss my dad. One of these I am sure that I will be able to look at the picture and not cry, but I have not reached that point yet.

Tonight I am going to go make some chai tea and then I am going to go soak in a tub. I am going to spend the night in my room just doing nothing.

Well, youve had hot weather, we've had three weeks of non stop rain! I wanted to paint the fence but its impossible. Glad work is going well, and I chuckled at the charles manson comment. Cannot believe she went to look! bad sense of humour we have! Im not sure if ive done anything new this year? Cant remember, my memory and hearing both seem to fade in and out, is this middle age?
take care of you and yours x unfamous
