I went to the grocery store and got almost everything I need for Thanksgiving. Whoo hoo. My life is so very exciting that I just don't know how I manage to deal with it. But, at least most of that is accomplished, which is always a good thing. All I need to get is the ham, some rolls, and since talking to Dad, the stuff to make some macaroni salad. Strange, but I didn't realize that he liked that. I will have to take the Spouse with me to get the ham. Nothing appealed to me (especially since I want a Honeybaked), so he can pick it.
As mentioned, I talked to Dad. He called while I was at the store, so I called him when I got home. He is coming over on Sunday (he says) for his birthday, so we can "do" something. I know that he just does not want to be alone on his birthday, and that's to be expected. If he hadn't said that he was coming over here, we would go over there anyhow because I wouldn't let him sit there alone on his birthday. I will have to go back to the store and get a cake mix and some frosting, maybe some strawberry ice cream, and bake a cake or let the Girl do it. I'll have to call Mom this week and find out what kind of cake Dad likes. But, when talking to him, I asked him if there was anything he wanted me to make for Thanksgiving, and he said no, but then he "wondered" if I was going to make the macaroni salad, so of course, I will make some. I will have to make a small batch, though, since no one will eat it except for me and him.
I have been studying for my pysch test. I do hope the higher level classes next semester are more interesting than this crap. If abnormal is not interesting, I am changing my major! Of course, I might anyhow, but I am pretty sure that I am just going to go with a dual. I haven't had much luck in finding many schools with grad programs in primatology, though. There are a few, but not many. We shall see. Perhaps I will just go into forensics, but again, we'll see.
The Girl will be home from school soon. I hope that today wasn't too stressful for her, although I would imagine that the boy who died over the weekend will have been a hot topic of conversation. I hope that if she found out exactly what happened that it didn't simply upset her more. It seems that he wasn't a close friend, but he was a friend nonetheless, and she is upset about this. I hope that an obituary shows up in the paper soon, so that I can at least take her to a viewing or something if they have one. She may hear something at school about that as well. It's so very awful when kids die, and teenagers are so emotional and stressed as it is, when one of their peers dies, it's that much more difficult for them. It's really just not right.
So, enough of this for now. Back to my studies. I am so bored with this. I will be glad when this semester is finished - hopefully the next one will be better, even though I still have a long run across campus! I hope from the social sciences building isn't worse than from the CIS building. We'll see.
