Update in bullet format!

Much has been going on in Chateau Ste. Sundae.

*My grandfather in Nashville has been in the ICU for a week and a half now. He's getting much better, but still, bad scene.

*My uncle, who is a notorious druggie, has contracted FLESH EATING BACTERIA and it has moved from his arm into his chest cavity. I haven't seen him in years. Also, bad scene.

*It is distinctly possible that I got a D on my ethics midterm. This is not because I lack ethics, I've got ethics out the wazoo, but the professor had some tricky true or false questions and I screwed up at least two definitions. I'll find out Saturday.

*In other ethics news, I am fighting with my ethics group. I know I've got particularly stringent ethics and not everyone is willing to put aside their comfort for their own personal integrity (this isn't blowing my own horn, if I didn't live by my ethics, I'd hate myself so really I'm just avoiding discomfort).

*I turn 28 on Saturday, and in all the hubbub of work and school and this new blogging gig, I have not planned a single thing. LAST YEAR I had two bands, burlesque dancers and drink tickets. This year: bupkiss.

*Please pray for the Johnson family, and for my rector, who is almost certainly presiding over the funeral. I'll miss Lady Bird, she was a hell of a girl.

I am going backwards on your blog, and you have been under a lot of stress.
Sorry about your Uncle, and Grandfather. Prayers for them.

And sorry about the D. I didn't do well in Seminary grade wise on some subjects, I don't do tests well. And Ethics is always tricky. Hang in there.

And Happy Birthday. You are a busy girl.

You know that stuff you wrote in that place the other day when I was having a Very Bad Day? It really made me laugh and made me feel better. Thank you.
