End of the month

It's difficult for me to comprehend that today is the last day of July. The year is more than half over and I feel like I've gotten nothing substantial accomplished. Perhaps, I should count surviving it so far in the plus column.

Today is my older sister's birthday. I don't talk to her. I haven't seen her since Grandma passed away several years ago. Awhile back she found me on Facebook and sent me a friend request so I accepted it. Partly because I wanted to see pictures of my niece and nephew and partly because I missed her. We don't talk much on Facebook (I'm fairly quiet there) but today I signed in with the express purpose of just saying happy birthday to her. So I did. And that is that.

I haven't been feeling well today. Mostly because of a squabble with a friend over feelings and the lack of acknowledgement of said feelings but we worked things out to a point. We had a conversation and came to a few generalized agreements and while it's not the outcome I was hoping for, it is one I can deal with like a reasonable person.

Nick took a class online over the summer so he can officially skip a grade and be a senior when school starts. There are eight days left of the class and he'll have a couple of weeks to hang out before school starts back for the year.

Beth has a minor surgery scheduled for Tuesday which requires sedation. I'm not looking forward to this. I'm off Tuesday and Wednesday of this week so that a good thing. Just a couple of nights to get through before I have 2 more days off.

I'm going to stop rambling and go finish up my work so I can go home in just over half an hour.
