Week 31

31 weeks.  

I wish I could say it was happier.  A student at my school passed away unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm.  She was only 14.  Death and dying are enough to deal with as an adult, but try explaining it and being the strong one for a class full of kids wondering why their classmate died.  Will I have to explain this to my own kids someday? I certainly hope not.

Too young, too soon.

The insomnia is also back with a vengeance. I think there were a couple times this week that I woke at 2:30 and couldn't get back to sleep.  Perhaps it's Mini Meyer preparing me for months of sleeplessness.

On a high note, my boyfriend finally conceded to getting a "new" car for himself. He's been driving his '95 Accord since we met in high school. The Red Baron, as I call I, has been to the moon in mileage and hasn't had working AC for a long time. Most concerning was that it was two-door, meaning it would be a huge pain getting Mini in and out.

Here it is!  I'll have to come up with a name for it. It's an '03 Accord. Still stick shift, meaning I don't know how to drive it (sometimes I think that's why he likes manuals so much.) It has four doors(!) and has been very well maintained.  We also paid in cash so we got a great deal.  Overall it's a vast improvement from the last car and we both feel much better about carting our miniature beloved around in it.
