I don't get that at all, CQ. Even if they thought you'd say no or figured you weren't interested, I think they'd at least invite you? I just, it boggles my mind. I'm really very sorry.

Yeah, that sucks! My parents have done this a couple times w/ my sister and her partner. My parents will take their motorhome and my sister and her partner drive and stay in a cabin.. I think they probably just assume we aren't interested, and honestly we usually wouldn't be because I'm usually living a lot farther than they are, and sister and parents are still in the same metro area.. but it feels a little hurtful that they haven't even asked.

If they'd been doing it half my life regardless of circumstances, though, I'd be pretty steamed.

I'm so sorry CQ!

I know how rough it is to be excluded by your family, and even as you grow up, I don't think it ever stings less. Big hugs, friend!

My parents are having a party to celebrate their new kitchen and I foolishly agreed to come up early to help out. I forgot how much of a totally fun ball of anxiety my mom is before any type of social event! Worrying about putting ice and food out a full half an hour before the start time, not wanting to put the dogs in the garage instead of the basement because they could "chew the tires of the cars" (seriously) because having them out in the party is NOT an option, yelling at my dad for not being psychic, yelling at my dad for potentially putting too much ice in a bucket that he is the one who is going to carry anyway... Is it any wonder that I have social anxiety? Thanks mom, for turning a simple get together with friends into a harrowing gauntlet of impossible standards!

My teammate fractured her hip in a race today. I was watching, and while I didn't see the crash, I was the first of her friends to get to her after. She was/is in good hands, but man, she was in so much pain. It was really hard to stand by and wait for the medics. She's super tough and strong, and she'll be okay, but I'm really sad for her.

Holy heck, supercarrot, that is awful.

A very good friend of mine is finally ending her abusive relationship. Because he kicked her out. She is distressed, and I am too far away to help.

thanks, guys. it's so surreal, because i saw the headline before it refreshed, and thought wow! 20 years ago i had no reservations about biking or walking in those woods (even though there were stories of devil worshippers. whatever) and then once it refreshed with her name and photo, my heart sunk. what makes it even worse is that she was born without a forearm/hand, so she overcame so many obstacles, and it makes me wonder if that's what made her a target. :-(

That's horrible. I found some of the articles about it and it's just heartbreaking. I'm so sorry this happened, and I'm keeping you and her loved ones in my thoughts.

thanks guys. i'm doing just fine. (just a little shocked and sad) we had drifted apart over the years, but she had a big and tight knit family, so my heart is breaking for them.

kfad, that's bittersweet news. here's hoping she can get back on her feet and become a take-no-shiitake woman.

Small potatoes compared to lots of stuff here (jeebus, SC.), but I totally tanked my last French quiz for a stupid reason that I should've totally aced (I was just tired, I guess, or not paying attention). My teacher was even like, "missd, seriously? what the fork happened?" And I need to ace everything the next two weeks in order to make it out with an A- because I got strep throat and was out seven days (which is half a quarter in this intensive course). I'm doing fine, and my teacher says I learn much quicker than the others and I'm doing great in everything else, but ugh. I just don't want to fork up my GPA so close to applying to grad schools.

A B in French is not going to matter in the scheme of things. Grad schools are going to care a lot more about other stuff. Don't stress <3

Many science programs actually only really consider your in-major GPA. Maybe it is the same for other disciplines.

I mailed off a partial payment to my credit card company. It's the first time I've ever had debt with a credit card, the first time I haven't been able to 'pay in full.' I have a solid plan for paying it off (four months or less), and the excessive spending was due to Biscuit's surgeries, so totally worth it. But urgh. I don't like it.

Today I learned what a fire any attack feels like - the verdict is, not at all good. Took some Benadryl but probably shouldn't have taken two pills because I'm still a zombie after my nap.
