Two weeks and this semester will be a bad dream. I got a tutor last week to help me figure out subnetting and supersubnetting enough to get me through the class. I am so tired of this one guy in the class. He never does his own homework, he said he hasn't read a page in the book. He has a relative that was in the class before who gets a kick out of doing his homework for him. He knows what's on the tests and stuff, so the guy always has a heads up. It REALLY PISSES ME OFF! I guess I care too much, because I want to know how to do it. I don't want to depend on others all the time. The few times this guy doesn't have his homework done, he comes extra early and casually asks what everyone got for #8, and then #4, etc, till he has it all filled in. Some of us get together and compare, but I don't think most know what a jerk this guy is. His grade is higher than mine, and I have been working my butt off. He schmooozzes his way through life, and I hate to be mean, but I hope it bites him in the ass.
My dad has good days and bad days. He has lost about 30 lbs since he got home from the hospital. Most of it was fluid, so he is feeling better in that respect. He still has a lot of pain with his lungs. They put him on a pain patch and Tylenol 3, but that quit working. He is taking Vicodin now. Last I heard it was helping. The lung specialist told him its either fungus in his lungs, which can break itself up eventually, or its cancer, which there is nothing they can do. He has to have a blood test to find out.
My niece hasn't had the baby yet. We are still waiting. My brother called last night while I was online, and the message didn't come through. I got offline and called him right back, since he never calls unless its unavoidable. He says he was just wanting to find out about Dad. They had called him earlier in the day but he couldn't understand the message, and they were in bed by the time he got around to calling them back. He said he will call as soon as the baby is here. (of course, the aunts and uncles on the other side of the family are notified as soon as labor is started, then they all camp out at the hospital. Maybe I am picky, but I feel unwanted.)
I better get moving. God Bless.
