It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Sean, Ian, Argh

So I am on the mend.. still far from perfect, but mending. No more fever, just coughing like crazy so I still need that horrible cough medicine the doc gave me, and my pain pills because the coughing HURTS. The combination of the two leaves me pretty useless for anything else, though. Here's hoping the cough goes AWAY soon.

Meanwhile, Sean has a whole entirely different sort of crud. His has him puking and crapping like crazy. He's running a 102 fever. We have a doctor appointment for him tomorrow morning, thank God we discovered Dr Griffin, $35 office visits, cheap blood work, and does NOT accept insurance! This is how he keeps his costs down to a reasonable level. So my men have a doctor again, one that we can afford. Thank God.

In other news, Ian said "fuck" today in school and got an In School Suspension. The complete context: "Quit fucking hitting me!"

Of course, as always, the lunch lady didn't notice the brutalization the football team always commits on my son, so only my son got punished. We are meeting with Ian's principal over this. Plain and simple, if the kid who hit my son doesn't get suspended, then neither does my son. Period. If I have to, I will bring this to the superintendent of schools. I am finished with Ian being bullied and brutalized and the little jerks getting away with it. We're also considering a lawsuit to force them to put in an anti-bullying program in the district.

I got in touch with another old friend via Facebook tonight. She told me that the guy who convinced me to get a real internet account and to check out IRC and MUDs passed away about two years ago. I'm pretty upset by this news. Greg/Snooze was a really nice guy. He is missed.

I know too many dead people.

And that's all for now.

Borderline symptom of the day: confusedmixed

Hmm, the name Snooze rings a faint bell. It's quite possible I knew the guy, or at least knew of him. Where did he hang out?

DragonMUD, and many many other places.

Hmm. Never been on DragonMUD, so unless I met (or heard of) him on one of those other places, either memory's playing tricks on me, or I'm thinking of someone else.

Kick ass for Ian! Screw someone picking on your kid and getting away with it!

Sad news about snooze. :( I saw him active one day (a miracle!) and started talking to him, he was a great guy.

They should have anti-bullying anyway. Good on you for the follow-through. Want some chicken soup? I gots LOTS at the moment. And it's steaming hot.

Go get 'em, tiger!

kick ass and chew bubblegum!

Yes, go get 'em! My son is subject to bullying because he is kind, sensitive and helpful. He has been hurt many times. But we continue to be very proactive in trying to protect him from these horrible boys. The last time, the boys terrorized him on the bus repeatedly. He reported it without retaliating. The terror got worse *BECAUSE* he did what the school told him to do. So we got involved. Three boys were suspended for three days. The next day each of the parents spent hours on the phone with my husband yelling at him because their precious little boys got in trouble. Of course, our son was at fault. GRRRRRR. We found out they (the parents) ended up getting the three boys together for a three day 'play date'. Way to go for modern parenting and teaching kids to take responsibility for their action! Yay.
