independence day was good, had some bbq and watched some illegal fireworks.
i go in on aug 23rd for day surgery, i have some abnormal cells on my cervix. i'm glad i'm having surgery i don't want to be awake while they scrape my cervix!
i'm just going to wrap up my shitty month here.
may 2nd: my brother-in-law throws a hissyfit, so while his girlfriend is at work we watch the kids. brother-in-law gets even more mad and demands the kids come home. luke asks if he thinks he's ok to watch to girls, brother-in-law goes psycho and tries to bust down our garage wall. (we live in adjoining duplexs so he was coning from his garage into ours). the girls are hiding behind the couch crying, i'm on the phone with the police and luke grabs his rifle (swedish mousier from about a hundred years ago). luke fires two rounds into the garage to try and scare him away. he kills the water heater with one shot. brother-in-law runs away. cops show up. after about an hour and a half outside, they aresst luke and catch and arrest brother-in-law. luke goes to jail for two nights! he is charged with unlawful firing of a weapon and pointing a firearm at someone (both class c felonies). he takes a deal and pleads guilty to menacing ( a misdeamenor). court appointed probation for 18 months, no guns, not allowed to contact brother, and do 80 hrs community service. brother-in-law's girlfriend goes back to him (because she's stupid) and treats us like we are the enemy (even though we were just doing what she asked). brother-in-law is being charged with criminal mischief II. everything starts to get back to normal when we get an eviction notice in the mail friday!!! we talked to our manager, told her our side of the story, and she said she'd call us today with her decision.
what a shitty month! we are being punished for protecting ourselves.
but whatever. that basterd will get whats coming to him.
already into the third week of school. not so bad. my theories of personality class is pretty cool. i get to apply all the theories to my friends and family and analyze them. developmental psych is boring. i have a hard time staying awake in that class.
so many things i need to get done for school. i need to apply to be a psych major. i need to fill out my fafsa. i need to plan my next term. and talk to the humanities head person to set up my minor classes. one more year, just one more year!
i'm a little frustrated....
my symptoms of ITP are coming back. i went and got a cbc done today. i should get a call from my doctor either today or tomarrow letting me know the results. my doctor said if my platelet count fell again he wants me to get the same treatment as last time (an antibody called Winrow). Last time i got the treatment i was sick for two days with flu-like symptoms! and it cost me $1300! (out of pocket!) So if i go do it again i will owe the clinic almost $3000! ugh. i'm so sick of this!
what a crazy weekend i had! I went out friday night with one of my co-workers and had a few drinks, didn't get home till after midnight. i went out saturday night with luke and some friends, but i didn't drink. we didn't get home till 5 am! i hadn't done that in awhile. and then sunday luke and i went and saw BON JOVI!!!! what an awesome concert! we had such a good time. great music, great performance. very cool! especially since it was lukes first concert!
well, only about 1 week left of classes then it's finals and then its spring break. i'm freakin out, man! i registered, but could only get into two classes! not many psych classes are being offered for spring and i still don't know what i want to major in, so i can;t take any minor classes! i'm really worried about next term. it's really scary not knowing what you want to do with your life. i have this feeling i'm not going to be ready to graduate next spring. damnit. i just want to get my life started!
exciting news in the world of amanda! I was in Todd Hall at WOU waiting for my research partner, so we could talk to oour professor, when a guy runs in to the building saying "I don't think the building is suppose to be smoking like that! I would get out of the building!" My partner had just walked in at that very moment, so we both went outside and sure enough, the side of the building was smoking. Another guy runs in and pulls the fire alarm and the building was evacuated. Sirens are heard from teh distance and soon police cars and fire trucks arrive. The funning thing was that when they showed up, the smoke stopped. BUt then it started again, only more blackish-gray this time. Then it stopped again. I haven't found out what the cause was, but i'm sure i will by tomorrow!
luke and i went and had his sister do our taxes on sunday. we were chatting about how much money kids can get you back on your taxes. it's pretty crazy! but luke and i aren't lacking because me being in school gets us a pretty good tax return, too. we get an extra $500! pretty sweet!
well, i'm off to class now...
i went out friday night and got drunk with tamara! that was fun, i haven't been drunk in a while. Jessica came with us but she doesn't ever drink when we go out. saturday i felt like crap, but still dragged my ass out of bed to meet my sis and nephew at the woodburn mall. then i went to winco with tamara and her two boys. what a nightmare! travis threw a huge tantrum at the check out counter. i call hanging out with tamara my "birth control". heh heh. sunday i worked all day. i couldn't beleive how slow it was at the mall! i guess because a northwest team was playing in the superbowl, more people were watching.
my mind is turning to mush from staring at hotel websites. luke and i want to go to the coast this weekend and we had a great deal at a motel ( captain cook inn) because i had a 10% off coupon plus stay two nights get a third for free. but when i made reservations, the guy said it was an event weekedn so those were invalid. get this, the event? an INXS concert! what? give me a freakin break. anyway, now i can't decide on newport, lincoln city, or seaside.... i have to decide before tomarrow at 3pm. thats when i can no longer undo my reservation w/out paying.
