Well, I talked with Marc's mom last night. Today is the last day of the trial. Things have changed a little as more information came out about the shooter and the passengers. It looks to be that the person we thought was the "ring leader" may have only been "at the wrong place at the wrong time and with the wrong group". And it looks like the shooter is possibly the actual ring leader. They are also deciding on whether or not to go for the death penalty because the death penalty is open to appeals whereas the "natural life" penalty would never be appealed and the person would die in prison. Lots and lots of new info came out, but I am just not up to typing it all out. Needless to say, I think all that are involved are just looking forward to the end and then moving on with their lives. As Toni has been saying to me NON stop, I guess it is time for me to move on as well, and the only way to do that is to allow myself the time I need to mourn him. When I feel more energetic about all this, I will novel it out for all to read, but for now, be happy with this little tid bit. OHHHH, I did forget the "funny" part of it. There has been lots of intentional "leaks" made to the press and to other people, so what people are reading on the internet sites and through "contacts" is wrong. They are trying to find "leaks" in their department, as well as, leaving false trails for the media so that they will leave the witnesses and family alone until after the trial. Now that is funny!!!!!!!!

Letting you into "THE MIND"....

Here are my thoughts for the day.....
1) have you ever had a person/persons in your life who have left your life that you are grateful that they are no longer a part of your life?
2) have you ever been so annoyed by a co-worker that you look for ways to irritate them?
3) why do people CHOOSE to be pretentious?

Sssshhhhhh...I'm trying to sleep!

Yep, we are going on day 4 in the championship finals of "NO SLEEP"! Last time I saw the "Z fairy" was Saturday night. Yep, the Toni is right and I should allow myself to mourn, to handle my stress, to deal with life....but damn if I am too busy for that shit!!!!!! I have way to much stuff on my plate at this point! HOWEVER, I am typing this with my eyes closed so I think that sleep will be happening tonight. And if you think I am kiddding about the typing with my eyes closed remark, you obviously have never seen how fast I am able to type!!!! Probably typos all over, but the only person that will care is Scott.

Anyways, work has been pretty good. I will be leaving early on Friday, so that is a huge bonus to me. The parents leave tomorrow for Oregon, another huge bonus. I bought three bags of bulbs to plant this weekend and have 15 more bags (appx 170 bulbs) that will be arriving shortly, so the last HUGE bonus for me. Gardening is a god-send to my relaxation needs.....which I will be needing that in abundance for when the folks leave. Hmmmmm, somewhere along the lines the roles reversed in the parent/child relationship. Shouldn't they be the ones worrying about me??????

Anyways, the countdown is on for the Mesquite/Vegas trip and I am SOOOOOO looking forward to seeing Drunk Toni again. It has been awhile since that rascal came around and honey-bunny now has a digital camera and is threatening to bring that to take pictures of Drunk Toni!!! Can you say BLACKMAIL????????
