I have had a long week, Monday I had the day off (yeah vacation days) and mostly just caught up on Laundry and cleaning, Wednesday was Thing 1's track meet, yesterday I had to go to the Doc again for my monthly medication check(someday she is going to get the combination right and I will finally wake up without a headache) and today I have a girlie sleep over.
Thing 1 has had, well actually had (past tense) a best friend(we will call her Pink) since 3rd grade. For years (6) they were inseparable....Pink spent most of her time at our house to escape from an abusive father, went on Vacations with us, mainly she was just another of my children and knew she always had a place in our home. Last year (9th grade)Pink started dabbling in drugs that were entirely too accessible as that is what her dad does for a living. At this point my daughter decided that she wanted to steer clear because she knows that is not the kind of life she is interested in living (having seen what it had done to her father and I). Thing 1 was devastated, she cried and moped for months. She, alot like me, has never made friends easily, especially not female friends, and the loss of Pink...sucked. 4 months ago a boy at their school overdosed on Pinks drug of choice, needless to say it scared the crap out of her. Tonight for the first time in over 2 years Pink is coming to spend the weekend at our house. 2 years ago they were 13 and didn't care to do anything but play Rock band and Myspace all night long. Now as 16 year olds I am wondering what will transpire, will they play video games? Should I lock up all my liquor? We don't have any drugs in the house, do I search her things or trust that she is telling the truth? She isn't (wasn't) a bad girl, she just took some steps in the wrong direction. ACK.... maybe I should just kick back and enjoy the fact that thing 1 has here sister back....I don't know, but I think I am done talking about it for now, I will fill everyone in on Monday if anything exciting happens...LOL
On another note I just want to say...I finally finished the 4th book in the "Twilight" series and can I just say...it was good. Book 4 was well worth the wait of slow ass book 2 and medium ass book 3. Now i am on to the latest Anita Black vampire novel...I heard Ann Rice was supposed to come out with another in her Vamp series...is that true?
