So It's 3:03 & I've only been up a couple of hours, I'm still trying to wake up. Highschool really takes it out of a person.
My grandpa had his brain surgery, which went really well, but it looks like we'll be suing the hospital for malpractice because they screwed us over with the nursing home (the nurse at the Hospital told the nurse there not to accept Grandpa, even though he should have been, just because he gave her a hard time) and he almost ended up in the hospital again because he had nowhere to go. This is called "bounce-back," and is a very bad thing. Thankfully my Aunty V is a malpractice lawyer and my Dad found a place that agreed to take Grandpa on an emergency basis.
But meanwhile my mom has been miles away with Grandpa & Aunty V, leaving me & Dad to fend for ourselves. So far it has been burgers, pizza, popcorn, chips & getting up at 6:00 every morning to discover Dad has gone back to bed.
But the thing that is really stressing me out, though this may seem bratty or spoiled, is that my birthday is going to SUCK. I'm turning 15, and I've been planning my party for weeks, but I don't have any REAL new friends, so I'm not going to have enough people to do my special party. Every night I lie down and stare at the Xmas lights on my wall thinking "No one is going to care, it's my birthday and no one is going to care..." but I can't cry because if I did then my parents would have to worry about me, and they already have tons of other stuff to do. And my aforementioned lack of friends means this is the only place I can talk about it.
Did you know when I don't cry the pressure in my nose turns into a sneeze? I've had to tell the kids in my classes that I have weather-induced allergies.
