Well, I missed a day, but I’ll make up for it today.
Job–kids are crazy and it’s cold. They’re all getting into Soduku which is funny ’cause they all think it sucks until they start playing it. Talked with a mom today and she was shocked to hear her son was involved in gang activity–until she saw him in the hall giving the handshake. That really woke her up–she dragged him away and checked him out! Hope that helps.
Fam–depressing. Mom and dad are wrangling with the mortgage company for their settlement after Katrina. They received 158,000 for repairs to their house. The mortgage company said they could have 58,000 which is BS because that means the mortg. company is keeping more than half–in fact, they’re keeping more money than my parents owe on the house! They’re making a profit on other’s misfortune. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now they’re being told that they can only receive 9,000 now and that the mortgage company will have to oversee all other expenditures. HEllo? The whole city flooded! They’re going to have to be overseeing a lot of people if they do this to everyone. Plus side, involved in an X-mas swap with the extended family–Andre and I got the hardest people to shop for. ONly mom’s situation is worse–she has to buy something for the twenty-something millionaire who likes to blow glass:)
Friends–not much. B is enjoying Dallas and making friends. She also said she’s going to B’s wedding. Yay! now everyone’s going.
Well, I have to go to this suck-butt X-mas party for A’s work.
