I don't know about anyone else, but these things are getting waaaaaaaay too hot for me to handle. I'm thoroughly disgusted with modern politics anyway, and then when I come here to relax.......what do I do but click on those damned Current Events threads and get pissed off all over again at the intellectual myopia, the meanness, and the utter contempt some posters show those who disagree with them?
Enough, I say........let's talk about something OTHER than politics now. How about what's going on in our personal lives, our own "current events"? I'll start:
1) Oldest daughter and her hubby-to-be have their marriage license and have FINALLY set a wedding date (the 29th of this month).........now, if they can just find someone to perform the ceremony and a place to hold it, they'll be in good shape. Next, they need to move the heck OUT of my house........
2) Younger daughter graduates from high school June 2, leaves for Army basic training July 13, two days after younger son turns 13. They want to have a big combined birthday/graduation/going away party. I wonder what camouflage balloons will look like next to SpongeBob plates, napkins, wrapping paper and so on.
3) I've managed to get myself onto a couple of restructuring committees at work, thanks to a nurse-manager who's got me confused with some kind of leader type. JCAHO is coming to our hospital in October, right around the same time I'm going to sit for the ANCC Med/Surg certification exam. I must be nuts.
4) We're going to lose half of our household in the next few months.......the two girls are leaving the nest, and my sister and BIL are reuniting and will probably get their own place sometime this summer. That means the two boys, my DH, and I will be rattling around the house like four small peas in a very large pod. Hey, does that mean I can turn the downstairs apartment into an exercise studio?
So, what's going on in YOUR lives this spring and summer?
