I should come back

To blogging that is. Things have been very busy . . .and to top it off we lost another student today . . he died on campus and it was really very traumatic for everyone. I knew this guy, so it made it that much harder. Spent most of my day talking to staff and informing them and then families. Makes no sense at all . ..two otherwise healthy boys in the last month dying . . .the one died while at home, but this guys dad asked rather suggestively "haven't you had someone else die recently" sort of implying we are in the business of killing people . . .we told him the other one died at home and somehow he was comforted by that.

Though someone I know and love and work with on Facebook today wrote "Heaven is a very different place tonight :) " while I wrote "today sucked . . big time . . "

I guess it is all in your perspective--though I wished I could have more of her perspective.

They're leaving . . on a jet plane!

No matter how much snow we get tonight, the parentals are leaving on a jet plane tomorrow--I don't care where they go, but they will go. I called dad to say that if the weather was bad today up there then we would drive up there and drive them back . . .his response "Gee, you REALLY want to get rid of us, don't you!"

They are coming in to our house today and then tomorrow I am supposed to take them to the airport. We are supposed to get about 6 inches of snow--which means in these here parts (due South of where Jenster is from!) everything shuts down and the grocery stores get cleaned out of milk, bread, eggs, and apparently cherry yogurt.

Oh well. I just want this trip to be a good one for them. Mom hasn't flown in over 40 years, and dad hasn't flown in a long time. They are going to TX to see my brother and his family. They will stay for about 3 weeks. Then they will come home and they will be radically different for the experience! This is my hope--that they find renewed vigor for life, and realize just what they have been missing my staying holed up at home for the last 10 years.

Should be very interesting!
