My heart hurts today.

Today, I am a whiner, a crybaby and my heart hurts. No kacklin today.

In case you didn't know, I went back to college, for reals, not just a class or two, last January (1/2008). I had raised my kids and had helped my oldest daughter, Chere, with her boys, twins, Marshal and Gabriel, almost 9, through the summer of '07 as she worked nights for the last three years. I took a little ceramics class that got me hooked. So I decided to take classes and get my Accounting degree. (I've been doing bookkeeping stuff since I was a teen. My parents had their own business and Mom taught me how to do accounting then.)

I have made all A's except 2 B's. 3 classes of Algebra didn't count because they were remedial (since I graduated in '74, I was rusty.)So finally this semester I qualified for enough time and grade point average to be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa, The Honor Society of Two year colleges. It was soo cool! I wasn't an Honor Student in HS, except, for maybe in partying. (I honestly could out drink most anyone there. What a feat, right?) I was the rebel that thumbed my nose at my parents. I was nice to everyone else. Well, except maybe Baby Bro. Now Baby Bro is 6-2 and towers over me. (I HAVE to be nice to him now..Or he will take me for a ride in his car. .SCARY!)

So anyways, last night was induction into this Fraternity. I invited a total of 7 people. 5 of which was family. No one came. NOT ONE. My youngest daughter called as I was on the way home. She had already told me she wouldn't be coming but I was hoping anyway. My youngest son was even off yesterday. But no, he didn't come either. My oldest son lives in another town so he couldn't come. My middle daughter wishes me dead. So today, I am crying. My heart hurts. Tomorrow, I will be better but today, not so much.

Hugs to all,

Oh KaLynn, so sorry that no one was able to attend. I'm sure if they knew how much it had hurt you, they would have all bent over backwards to get there. Congratulations on your great marks and chin up, tomorrow is another day!

Ya know I was just reading another blog and realized that it really is no big deal that no one showed. It is not life threatening. No one is sick. I'm very lucky. It's just school. Life goes on.

Tomorrow I will be back to normal.

You feel like an old friend. Thanks!

You have the officially sanctioned six-hour "feel sorry for yourself" window, and then it's time to move on.

Go for it.

Thanks Knucklehead! I'm better already! =0)

Ah KaLynn, I'm so sorry. I know how disappointing that is. I would have been hurt too. I can honestly say, if I lived close enough, I would certainly have been there for you. I'm so proud of you, I hope you know that. Love ya!
