Well since I've been stuck at home, unable to drive, unable to be independent, I've spent about 4 weekends at my grandparents and sisters over the last 6 weeks. It's been 2 years since I was at my g-parents last which is super embarrassing. I guess I've made up for it by being there so many times recently. :) Anyway, I've had several adventures recently. I was up this last weekend for the small town tradition of Neewollah. It's the town's fall fest/Halloween celebration. There's a carnival, fair food, lots of activities, etc. I haven't been since my Senior year of high school so it was really nice to be there. There's a parade and marching band competition on the Saturday of last weekend. I love this parade, I love marching bands, I love it. After the parade and competition, we go to Jayne's house to get dinner going. Well, Uncle Lee pulls out the VW Thing (see picture.) After some joy-riding, it was time to teach my sister Lindsay and I to drive a standard. So, Uncle Lee took each of us out and taught us to drive the Thing. My turn was a little trying since I couldn't reach the pedals very well and the breaks don't really work and I hadn't driven since May. I will have you know that I only killed it when I was learning to start and stop on a hill. I did GREAT besides that. I didn't jerk it once, all my shifting was down fluidly and easily. Hooray me! It was also nice to get behind the wheel and drive, even if it was on the runway Uncle Lee made in the field for his plane.

I've been question girl 2008 to my grandparents on these visits. I guess my curiosity is just now kicking in so I've been asking lots of questions about their lives and such. It's been really great to learn all of that. My grandpa is in the process of writing "life sketches" with his siblings that tell about their lives growing up. Being born in the 20's leaves lots of room for good stories.

Anyway, that's all. Since I'm all caught up with the DVR, I guess I'll have to find some things to do today...probably laundry.

what should i do?

So, since it's looking like this seizure thing isn't going to be figured out for a while, I'm considering working for Starbucks (insurance) and going back to school for a masters. The problem is, I still don't really know what I want to do so I'm struggling with the decision to possibly accrue more debt and get a masters that may not benefit me in the long run. On the other hand, I don't think I'll be a person that has a career in something for 10, 15, 20 years. So...here's what I'm considering.

-Law School.
-School/Guidance Counselor
-Speech/Language Pathology
-Something with Design
-MBA (seems to be pretty useful across the board)

I know...it doesn't seem like any of that goes together...which is part of the problem.

So, I need some feedback. What should I do?

EDIT: So I spent some time thinking about what I would want to do if there were no limits (money, insurance, where I live, etc) and I decided I would be the one who sets up the rooms/stuff for pictures in magazines, specifically RealSimple. Either that, or people would pay me to go through their stuff and get rid of it/organize it. I would love that.

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul, there is finally a rainy fall day and we have a porch to sit on and watch it and a back patio door with a screen to allow the wet pavement smell to linger into the living room. It's a good day...

i woke up to a partial seizure this morning at 7:45am. i had a 3 month streak going of no seizures until today. it's been a really frustrating day. i've been feeling really good lately, i've had more energy, and now it feels like i'm starting all over again. i talked to my doctor and i'm going to bump up my dose, again. i was sure that i was finally in a good place with my medication, i'd been stable for 2 1/2 months and not had to go up anymore, until today. i'm not sure this will effect my ability to drive or not. i hope it doesn't, but at the same time, i can't be having these if i'm going to be safe driving.

anyway, today's been disappointing and frustrating. i'm not looking for sympathy or comments, i just wanted to get this out.

Here's some peeks at our newest residence, a rent house. It's great; we love it!

No blogging recently because there's not much going down. I could talk about the debates, but I'd probably be e-killed because I don't work for CNN and breathe politics.
