I picked up my brother yesterday. He was so excited to walk out to my truck and he knew he was going home. I went to start the truck because he was in a hurry to leave and my battery was dead. I had left my lights on. I felt so bad. One of the sherriffs came over and jump started my truck. He is supposed to serve 8 months probation in Lake Co. but he can get off in 4 for good behavior and community service. Anyway, it is great to have him home. He and Ryan get along really well.

This weekend I need to find out what is wrong with my truck. It has been stalling when I stop and having trouble starting (times other than when I run my battery dead). I like my truck but I want it to run properly again.

I am really looking forward to this weekend. I don't have much planned which will be nice. I like to not have a schedule to follow all the time.

Saturday I am going to see my brother. It will be the last time I see him in jail before he gets out, he gets out on Wednesday. I took the day off to go pick him up. He will still be on probation in Lake County. He shouldn't be but his lawyer sucks and did not push for the charges to be ran concurrent. Oh well it will be nice to have him home.

Sunday Rachel is signing at Danielle and Alan's church. I told her I would go for support. It has been a long time since she has sang in front of a church. She is nervous but I love the way she sings so I am excited about that. Also I have never been to their church and I told them I would visit.

Good news....I get off at 4:00 today. Only 2 hours and 40 minutes left of work.

Jan. 4th, 2006 @ 12:19 pm hair cuts
Current Mood: disappointeddisappointed
I just wanted my hair trimmed and now it is way to short. I love Dana and I have never had a problem with her cutting my hair. It took me a long time to grow my hair out from when I had Danielle cut it really short a long time ago and now the shortness is back. Oh well, it is just hair, it will grow back, that is my usual reaction but I got extremely emotional over it, almost cried, and and declared that I will wear my hair up for 6 months. It is almost too short to put up. I am better today and I am wearing my hair down.

Christmas was good. Lots of running around. We spent Christmas Eve at my Aunt's house, which was mind numbingly boring but we got some good gifts.Then we hung out with Ryan's cousin Johnny.

Christmas morning I drove to Ocala to see my brother. A little note to everyone, if you are thinking how bad your Christmas sucked this year, you could have it worse, at least you are not in jail. I almost didn't get to see my brother because the guard on duty wanted to be a prick. Then went home, opened presents with my mom and Ryan. Went to my aunt's house again for a little while. We spent most of the day at Ryan's parents house. I got to spend some time with Josh and Melissa. After that we headed out to see Ryan's other grandparents on his birth dad's side. We ended up being there until 9:30pm. It was a good Christmas.

Now back to work and I am thinking that my little Christmas break was not nearly long enough. Hope your Christmas was merry!

Current Music: Christmas music at work....ALL DAY!!!
I have done a lot in the past week. I caught up on all my stuff at work. Ryan and I went Christmas shopping last weekend and got everything done expect a few things. I tried to help my mom hang Christmas lights outside but that didn't go very well. The lights fell down 3 times, I broke two bulbs and cut my hand. Oh well!

I was sad that I didn't go to Danielle's Christmas party. Maybe next year.

All and all life is still good.

Does anyone know how to transfer money from Bank of America to Marion County Jail? I was you can do that, and put money in a inmates account so they cna buy stuff but I cannot figure out how. My brother needs money and I don't want to have to drive to Ocala tomorrow.

Things are not much better with my grandpa is still sick. He has 3 doctors looking over his records and all the tests. One says he had a small stroke that paralyzied his right vocal cords. The other says that he has a mass in his throat that needs to be removed. The other doctor is clueless and wants to run more tests. Meanwhile, my grandpa is in pain, he cannot barely eat, drink, or talk. They want to put him in the hospital and put in a feeding tube but he refuses to go in. I tried to tell him that he can get dehydrated and he will just get worse. He is 84 years old and he is scared that if he goes in the hospital again he is not coming out and he will just die there. So pray for my grandpa, he is not well.

My brother went to court. His release date is January 11th. When he gets out he might still be on probabtion, he will have to pay some fines and do community service. I have not seen him in about 2 weeks. They messed up his visitation list and took me off. He has had a lot of problem with his list. I went up the past 2 Sundays and I'm not on the list. I miss my brother.

Other than that things are okay. Ryan's birthday is Saturday but I don't what he wants to do yet. He is not much for planning ahead.

I finally went to the doctor yesterday. I have been sick for almost a month and not getting better. Now I have medicine so maybe that will help.

Sunday morning my brother has visiting hours so I went to visit him and they would not let me in. They said I am not on the list. Every other weekend I went to go visit him I had no problem. He has a court hearing tomorrow. I really hope he gets out. I miss him being around. It is really upsetting to have to go visit your brother in jail.

My grandpa has more problems now. He had an x-ray and they found a lump in his throat. They don't think it is cancer but they are checking it out. He also is on the verge of getting pneumonia.

Other than that things are well. I really need to start my Christmas shopping. It will probably be very last minute much like last year.

I hope one day my life settles down a bit. This month too much has gone on. Last Monday my brother turned himself in. He is now an offical inmate in marion county jail. I called a lawyer to try to get him out but his probation says no bond but I refuse to believe it. Right now his court date in January 18th but I want to get him out before Christmas.

Ryan and Matt attempted to change my oil this weekend but they bought the wrong size oil filter so that was a mess!

My Aunt Linda died. It is my cousin Chanel's mom. She had cancer. Please pray for the family. My mom left on Sunday to go to New York. I wanted to go but someone has to stay here to take care of things for my brother. Also, my grandpa is really, really sick so I have been taking care of him.

Maybe things will be a little more calm next year.
