Back to the U.P.

I'm headed back to the U.P. My father has been discharged from the hospital after 2.5 weeks. I have been conflicted over this and finally am going back. I probably should never have left, but I did. I hope this means he is really on the mend and things will be improving. It seems like everytime he improves in one area something else hits him. He's too old to take too many hits.

Pray for me.

So I guess this is just confirmation that I have no life.

Too bad the list wasn't about TV shows I watch and how many episodes of those shows. Right now we have 70 episodes of Charmed on TV waiting for us to watch them... and I try and watch at least three a day, plus all the new shows that come out. I watch way too much TV.

And where does the "ten favorite whats?" come into this? Who really knows. I just wanted to get started writing and this was how.

I have just had a rough couple of weeks. I don't even want to talk about it -- all I want is for someone to tell me that I'll get through it -- I don't want to hear that everything is going to be okay, just that I can make it through it. I want someone to hold me and tell me that I am going to be okay -- not things -- but I'll get through it. I don't seem to have that though.

anyway... that's it for now.
see ya.
