Midnight and beddy-bye for me.
Thanks to all of you for the comments on the girls' pictures. It may be considered gauche to brag about our kids but as I said on another blog earlier today, I'm a granny - that's different. It's okay to drag out the pictures.
Ray still doing well and I've had a normal day except for oversleeping this morning. Elcie missed her bus for the first time in a couple of years I think and I drove her to school. A little late but she got there. I think I woke up ahead of the alarm and turned it off and went back to bed without ever waking up.
Went to our PFLAG meeting tonight. We watched a video called "Your Mother is a Lesbian, Here's Your Lunch, Now Go to School. It's the story of a former minister (at least former in her church at that time, she may still be a minister) who "came out" while she was still married with children. Her ex- husband stood with her every step of the way after their divorce and her children obviously adore her. Her parents and twin sister were part of the video and talked about the change in their viewpoints over the years. It was beautiful.
We talked (generally) about families; the ones who love and support their kids and the ones who don't. I can't imagine not loving my kids (even my problem kids - not you Tim or Jim) and it breaks my heart to hear some of the stories. With some, it was the elephant in the living room; never mentioned. With others, their families had disowned and turned against them.
I just don't get it.
We're still working on getting all three girls in the same school. I can ask the District for a change in school assignment for Rebecca. I'll plead unusual circumstances and see if anyone is listening. If she could ride the bus with Rochelle, fine; otherwise, I'll drive the two of them. I could drive Elcie but handling her wheelchair in and out twice a day is too much for me. Possibly she could leave it at school during the week which is what we did in elementary.
My eyes are closing - probably trying to tell me to call it a night.
I'll see you tomorrow.
