I can't believe he comes back from a 4 1/2 day weekend to news that they'd love to keep him, he's their top grossing person but....he was hired last. If it makes him feel any better about it, the night guy that got hired a few months ago is getting the ax too. I literally want to murder the owner of his place that closed a year and half ago. My dad had a good gig there but this guy didn't know how to keep his zipper zipped and his ex wife and ex girlfriend took all of his father's money from him and forced the place to shut down. My dad barely got his last paycheck from the place and zero benefits.

My mom and my aunt had to take my almost 94 year old grandpa to the dr today for an unexpected visit. Not a good day.

So I've been hiding in bed ever since. I think my dad was home for a bit but left. My brother has an apartment in his building that they're repairing so he went to take his mind off of this. I haven't heard from my mom, who is just a complete mess over my dad on top of my grandpa.

I want to talk to my sister but I was told under no circumstances is she to know either until she's home from work. I just hope she doesn't contact me at all this afternoon.

Finally..........not only did it snow last night but it dumped buckets again today. The snowplow buried me in so unless my dad did something while he was home, I'm stuck here.

My mom and I have been planning a lunch and shopping trip for today for weeks too.
What awful news! A perfect example of when it rains it pours. Hope your dad can find a job soon and that your grandpa is gonna be ok
Don't blame you for hiding in bed

ok my cell phone just rang and it is from my friend N, whose mother is not doing good health-wise. I let it go to voicemail because the Dr office is supposed to call me back shortly with my test results of my bone scan...........ring phone, ring!

We had a great Christmas...it's always great to see the families.

I was going to post my presents in the appropriate thread but I got so much stuff I can't remember it all! I think I am going to settle on the couch with some tea and a Red Sox DVD until I have to go pick up the roomie at work.
Welcome back! A Christmas cold just what you wanted, right?

wine The holidays was certainly good for my parents liquor cabinet, which is now on the kitchen counter. I think everyone in the house is buzzing right now.

What a crappy day. I left when my parents happened to arrive at the same time. I really wanted to go out today just to get out plus everyone at both jobs wants to see the wedding cake pics so I had to get them developed. I had 1135 images on my usb memory stick. If I would have ordered all 1135 it would have been $550!!!!!!! I only need 14 pictures

My grandpa is ok for now. His legs are really swollen and leaking fluid. Gross I know. He's on meds, has to keep the elevated at all times, and will have to wear ace bandages for the rest of his life on his legs from the knees down. That kind of scares me that it's getting close for him. He'll be 93 next week....thought it was 94 He can hardly see, hear, walk. Poor guy.

My dad is a mess. My mom said he threw up in the parking lot at work and then had a hard time driving home. My sister called to say hi to my mom this afternoon and my dad answered the phone so the secret is out. She called me while I was wandering around town. I really needed to talk to her about it before I burst so I'm glad she called me.

What a great way to end a year/start a new year. I have so many things to look forward to over the next few months. I have lots of really great things going on between now and April and then the sky is the limit for my new career after April. I'm having a hard time even caring about any of it when my parents are always so depressed. This will be the 2nd new years in a row now that they've had with the stress of my dad being out of work. I think my mom was looking forward to leaving behind some of it with 2007 and now it starts all over again for them. /wine rambling.....

how beautiful! It really does look like something out of a dept store....and that's not a bad thing! My mom has a snowman collection but she didn't put it out this year. It's mainly nicer stuffed snowmen from dept stores and a few snowflake things.
