I wish I could come up with a more positive title, but sadly it fits : (
I haven't been on here since Easter, not out of laziness or lack of desire to write on here but just too many things going on at the same time. I was integrated out of Special Ed classes and it was a tough adjustment, but my friends at school helped me out and iMadeithappen! Haha I've been saving that one for a good time to use it.
Right after school let out for the summer my Dad and I were in a pretty bad car wreck, on the way do believe it or not check out a new car. I just didn't fit well in the back seat of our car and had to sit sideways in the back seat to even be slightly comfortable. Being almost six and a half feet tall will do that!
I can't say much about the accident because of the lawsuit that's going on but it wasn't my Dad fault, I can say that. He got banged up pretty bad and his back's bothering him, and I have a broken left foot and a couple hairline fractures in my left leg. I'm in a bit of pain all the time, and take painkillers before I go to bed so I can sleep, but I don't like how they make me feel.
It could have been a whole lot worse, and I know that. I'm just glad we're alive.
The accident has completely changed our summer plans. One of my Dad's friends (and former coworker) in Belgium invited us to his parent's home in Marseille, France to spend a week and watch the Tour De France, but we had to cancel because of our injuries. Neither one of us would have been very comfortable on the plane trip, and Dad has some trouble getting around. I'm pissed, I'll just say it. Why deny it?
I have a summer job, helping some friends with their three autistic sons that the parents admit are a handful. They have trouble getting them in any kind of summer day care because they're, well...difficult. For some reason they calm down a bit with me (Asperger's mind reading????) and they are manageable when I watch them. It was going to be me and my boyfriend Matthew watching them together, but because I can't get around that well they're letting my newer friend Hayden help out. We just split the money equally three ways instead of two, but it's still good money.
We also have a band going together so it's a chance for us to hang out and come up with ideas, but most of the time is spent keeping the boy's happy. The one boy can't talk so he communicates through text messages, which is funny. He's also incredibly smart, smarter than I think his parents understand. The other two are just a handful, and STUBBORN!
I know July is only starting, but I hope that the rest of the summer gets better. I don't think it can get any worse for me.
