WHEN IT RAINS IT FUCKING POURS

So, update. Grandma is still in the hospital, holding her own from what I've heard, admittedly I haven't been up to see her since Friday, things have been crazy; this is finals week and we've had some more medical drama go on as well. Monday night my Grandpa was admitted to the hospital and was not expected to make it through the night. For those of you playing the home game, that's my dad's mom in the hospital w/ stroke and dimentia among other problems, and my mom's dad w/ severe breathing problems among other things. Mom and Lori went up to see him; I did not... I was completely torn about it; but had a final the next morning, as well as the fact that I was already exhausted, and Grandpa was in a hospital approx. an hour and half away. I just didn't feel like I could be up half the night or more, physically. So Aaron and I went to stay the night at my mom and dad's, so if dad needed anything we would be there.

Amazingly, once again, Grandpa has pulled through... though for how long we don't know. He has refused pretty much all medical treatment except for oxygen. Anyway, he was up walking the halls, last I heard and his oxygen intake was reduced back down to normal levels (a criteria he had to meet before being released), so it looks like he'll be going home. I am hoping we'll make it up to see him this weekend. I should only have one final left on Monday after I finish my Meteorology one on Friday. The Monday one will be a doozy; one essay question and a reflection, combined for 4-5 pages in our exam book. *sigh* we 'statistically' have to prepare 4 different essay questions for the final, even though there will only be one of eight possible questions on the test. Let's hope I still have the ability to bullshit my way through 4-5 pages.

Also, Matt's Grandma passed away yesterday morning. Mrs. Nelson was a very sweet lady, who was known for her charm... I was touched when I received some crocheted doilies from her as a wedding gift, they were probably one of my favorite gifts... handmade with love, you just can't put a price on sentiments like that.

I was so tired last night (Lori let us sleep in her bed at mom and dad's, but the damn thing is slanted, and I could NOT get comfortable all night. Aaron on the other hand "had the best night of sleep in ages!" Whatever.) that I was in bed by 7:30pm. I slept pretty much like a dang log, and probably could have slept in past 8 this morning, but had to make it to class for a reveiw session.

oh yeah, Aaron's blazer that we bought last year, apparently needed tabs in January. He realized this on Sunday when he and Wili were working on his fiero. This sent us into a frenzy looking for the title, registration and any other paperwork from when we bought the vehicle last spring. (Bought it at the end of march, with a payment plan that was paid in May.) Couldn't find ANYTHING. He's been driving around w/out a registration or title for God knows how long... so he got the tabs (thanks mom! She picked them up for us since the DOL is in her building) and it turns out that the vehicle is registered to us, but the legal owner is still the car lot. *sigh* I have been calling them since Monday, and left a 2nd mssg today on their machine wondering why noone has returned my calls and stating that I need to receive a call back ASAP. It was very sternly worded, and I almost mentioned calling the better business bureau, but I think I'll save that threat for a future call.

But seriously, this has me wondering if our insurance has been basically null and void because we are not the legal owners of the vehicle... yikes.

Ok, after all of that how about some pics...



You know it must be spring... Aaron's getting the itch to cruise the Fiero, so he and Wili spent the day on Sunday tinkering with it.
