It's been cold here in Alabama these past couple of weeks. Thursday, I woke to 13 degrees. Last night on the way home, it began to sleet. When I was leaving to come home, I could see it pinging on the pavement and when I got home, ice had begun to form on my outside mirrors.
This past Monday night, I got a phone call from my dad. Apparently, he fell asleep while driving home from his girlfriend's house on Sunday night. Seems that he crashed into a pole, but he was not hurt. I saw the truck today.... yep, he crashed it... Dad, me and a friend of mine all went to eat whatever the meal is called between lunch time and supper. (Is there a word for it like there is for Brunch?) Dad and friend had chat about driving. Dad said he wasn't going to stop driving at night. Any suggestions on how to handle this one? I mean, I don't really care about crashing cars or trucks, but I do worry about him and other people getting hurt. I would hate to have to go all "TaWanda" on him (Fried Green Tomatoes). I made a couple of suggestions to him, but he seemed rather uninterested in hearing them. The suggestions were just short of taking his keys. I am afraid that might be next.
I'm afraid I have gotten back logged on reading everyone's journals because of issues such as this and a couple of other things. There are just times, when I become overloaded......
Other than issues like that, everything is going rather smoothly. School is bopping right along with no wild incidents.... yet (you know this stuff can change at a moments notice). It won't be long before it will be time to have our yearly meetings (IEP's) with parents. I'll be busy with those. Maybe they will help keep me out of trouble.
