I haven't made a post here since September 25th. It is now October 6th. It would appear that a lot can happen in such a short amount of time, so I'd best get writing.
Because of Dad's stubborn and paranoid ways, his out of control drinking and money spending, and his refusal to go to the doctor despite his condition, Mom and my sister set out to find a family lawyer and have Dad declared incompetent. The first court date was last Wednesday (October 1st) and Mom was granted medical custody or whatever. That night we put him in the hospital, and have since learned of liver failure and congestive heart failure. Good job, Dad. He needs a liver transplant, but can't even be placed on a transplant list until he's been sober for a year. That's all well and good, but I don't think anyone will disagree with me when I say that this won't happen. I've resigned myself to the fact that there will be a funeral in upcoming years, depending on how long it takes for his liver to fail completely. He's still in the hospital, but they're trying to discharge him on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. We'll see what happens.
I had the house to myself this weekend, because Mom went to Gatlinburg with her friends. She needed the time away, most understandable. All in all, it was a good weekend. I finished and turned in my conformation assignment (finally!) and am now waiting to hear back from my professor. I hate waiting to know how I did on things, it's a bit stressful. I got some more reading done for conformation, more than I needed to do. Saturday was spent watching show jumping, horse racing, and UFC. Steph and her boyfriend came over and we drank a bit. Sunday, the weather was lovely. Kelli, Russell and I went up to Ren. Fest and I made out nicely. I have a pretty skirt now to go with my corset, some new oils, and a rose (from my darling <3)
I need to do some cleaning around the house, so it's not a terrible mess when Mom gets home tonight.
A Jehovah's Witness just came to the door and asked if I was a bible reader. Ugh.
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, and it's dangerous thinking. Hopefully now that the Moon is on the upswing, things will be better.
Goals for the week:
1. Read lesson two for Behavior Modification, and start the assignment
2. Gym, gym, gym!
3. Go to the apartment. Trash everything that needs to be trashed, pack what is being kept, and move it out.
