Haven't posted in forever...

It's been just about over a year since my last time touching this thing, so let's see how this goes.

I'm currently coming to terms with my life as a Diabetic. Was diagnosed in late February. It's coming well, and I don't have to use insulin as my father did. I've changed my eating habits and have lost about 40 pounds.

I've been caring for my Mother for the last couple years, as her leg issues continue to get worse. She recently had to have a toe amputated after contracting a fungal infection. Since October of 2008, she has been admitted into the Hospital about 6 times.

The biggest kick to the gut for myself, and my entire family was the sudden passing of my Sister from Brain and Lung cancer at 55 this past September. She was a second mother to not only myself, but to almost everyone in the family. She lived with us, and died with us.

Welcomed a new Niece to the family, and watched another move away.

The last few years have been sobering as hell.

But I've got strong shoulders, and I survive.

I was in CVS the other day, picking up some sketch books. These two home repair-er looking dudes were in the same area and one was looking for a Mother's day card. All of the sudden this dude and his kid came in, and the son (aged around 2 ½)just darted behind the 2 guys.

He took a stumble and landed right on his face (more his chest area) he was fine, but it startled the guys, and he dropped the Toys he was holding. His father told him to shake it off, and that he was okay (because he was).

One of the guys come over and helps him pick up his Toys. His dad then asks the son "Now, what do we say?" and the son replies "Ow".

I love Children. They're wit is pimp, and they don't even realize it.

Rawr, bitches

I just found out that a kid who used to be in my class in elementary school was Arrested on drug charges. What makes it even more interesting is that the fool not only tried to hang himself in police custody, but he knocked out a guard, and took a female worker hostage.

He didn't seem TOO crazy as a kid, lol. Come to think of it, He (and his 2 siblings) seemed pretty normal for that school. But, alas..crap happens.

In other news, I had another full body X-Ray yesterday. Wasn't that fun. Had a young male worker poking all over my body and talking to me like he wanted to be Lesbian Brothers or something. Brokeback Exam Room much? Iiiick.

:( @ my overtly neglected LJ. With dead background images and lack of life and whatnot. IT'S DEAD!

Oh well, at least I smell powdery, like a baby's cracked spot :D!!!

And I'm snowed in. My family is all forlorn and "BooHoo, the weather is atrooocious!", but I'm all "Yeeeeeah, Boiiiiiii!!!!"

Your Birthdate: January 29

Your birthday on the 29th adds a tone of idealism to your nature.

You are imaginative and creative, but rather uncomfortable in the business world.

You are very aware and sensitive, with outstanding intuitive skills and analytical abilities.

The 29 reduces to 11, one of the master numbers which often produces much nervous tension.

This is the birthday of the dreamer rather than the doer.

You do, however, work very well with people.

Hmm...another strangely true quizie thing for Frank...I now believe the internet revolves around me >_<

On another note, I got my Hip X-Rays today, no results yet, but I have a weird feeling I may have to have surgery >_<. But I'm cool with it..no reason not to be :)
