Is it Friday yet?!?

My date with Kenny is this Friday! I can't wait!! Warren and I are going to stay in G.R. after, and I am sure I will have to go to TGIFriday's for dinner the next night. That's his favorite restaurant. They DO have good food, but I would like to try something else once in a while.

Went to Mom and Dad's on Sunday to make ribs for Dad's b-day/Father's Day/Gramp's B-day. Dad's still hurting...he's off from work for a month or until he heals...Hopefully it will be soon...He is missing golf very badly right now. Speaking of golf...I am going to get out soon and play a few rounds so I can be ready when Kelly comes home for Labor Day...

I was reading the Manistee News Advocate today, and found out that Ryan Johns has passed away. He was living in Va. I didn't know he had moved. Very sad news.

Dad's Birthday

Today, my dad turned 51! I know he is really feeling a lot older that that... He's recently had shoulder surgery, and is trying to recover at home. I called him to harass him and he was taking a nap--My dad NEVER takes naps! He is always giving my mom crap about taking them....Well, they're the same age again, and now he's doing it too! He hasn't been feeling well for the last month or so...He keeps thinking that he's having heart attacks! Its been pretty scary. He even called off his trip to Corpus Christie Texas for Nationals (bowling) because he thought he was going to die..turns out, he was just really dehydrated. Poor Daddy, he's really not old enough to be in such bad shape. I hope he starts feeling better soon.

Mom is feeling much better lately. I think she just needed to get out and get herself some sun. Now, she's so tan that she looks like leather...Really unhealthy! But, what do I know? I am just a kid! I keep telling her that she'd better start listening to me because I am the one that will be picking out her adult care home, and I can be cruel! Not that I would, but its a good threat!

Eric got a tattoo! It looks like a giant snake with a dragon's head. He had them color it blue...I don't know...I just don't know. He seems to really like it, and it IS on his I don't have a whole lot of say in the matter...but our grandpa is going to FREAK OUT! When he sees it on Sunday! He lost it when Eric got his ear pierced...I can't wait to see how he deals with this.

I did learn an important life lesson this week: NEVER EVER EVER ask the local pre-op transsexual the question of "What's new?" I can laugh about it now, but it has taken me several days to be able to consume solid foods again...Ha...Ha...Ha-gulp

Countdown to KENNY!!!!

Less than one month until I can see my dreamboat in person!!! I can't wait.

My friend Angela's last day at work was Saturday night...I am going to miss her. She is going to move to grand rapids to focus on her schooling...she was my very favorite supervisor at work!!! We had a party for her Saturday morning...after work...drinking margaritas at 10 am really isn't that bad (when you've been up all night) its kind of like going out for a drink after work...I just work strange hours....That's what I am telling myself anyway!

Eric is working at the buffet restaurant in the casino...he's been working the carving station and doing prep work. In two weeks, he's going to be a line cook in the deli--working midnights...I might actually get to see him sometimes now! He really is enjoying his job, so I am happy for him. He's not thinking of this as a career move, but a way to pay for school..This is cool to hear him actually thinking about his future...

In local news, M-55 is closed in front of my house, so there is 1/4 th of the traffic, so its been nice to be outside in the sunshine and not have to worry about Peanut running after cars and trucks!!
