A lil update...

Well, here they are, a little before and after haircut fun. Now that I look at these, I think I like the long hair better...but, I think we always want what we don't have.

Ok, sorry about the depressing picture with my dad, but it's the first long-hair picture that I saw. But, since he's up there, I'll give you a little update. He was in this awesome rehab facility, but for some lame $$ reason they only keep patients for 30 days, then they send them home for 30 days before they can reapply to come back into the rehab place. So, he had to leave Rusk Rehab the middle of this month. But, he can't come home yet, because he still needs like 16 hours of nursing care, plus our house isn't handicap equipped, so he couldn't even get around. So lucky him, he's at a nursing home:(. But, last Monday he did get to come home for 3 hours...the first time home since October!

He's been learning how to get himself around on his powered wheelchair. They basically strap his arm to the chair, and he kinda flings his wrist till he can get himself to where he wants to go. When I went home in February he was getting pretty good at it. I have a little video clip of him wheelin in his wheelchair that I'll put on here soon. Anyway, his attitude is great...he's just sooo dang bored.

My mom is working really hard, and trying to keep up with everything. She is doing really well though.

As for me...I have one fat paper and two tests left before I graduate!! One month and 2 days. I am so excited. After that, then what?? I think I'll just get pregnant!!:) Just kidding, kind of. No, I'll probably look for a full-time job to stay busy. If you hear of anything, let me know. Oh, and I HATE taxes!!! That's it for now!

Breedle B-I LOVE the hair. Seriously, you look fabulous! I am trying to think up what fun things I can do to mine while NOT cutting it.

I, too, am so happy that your dad is doing better.

Love the sexy face in the short hair pic!
I am so glad to hear you dad is mobile! That has to help a ton with his morale!
Baby? What? Huh? Definitely a good idea. No pressure. You better get busy. Wait. That didn't sound right, oh well. Still true!

-KJ said...

By the way Bree, I know you hate taxes because we all do , but don't turn into a democrat!

How's the "no eating processed sugar" diet thing going by the way? I still don't get it... I think if sugar is added to something while making that something that is a "process". How bout calling it, the "no sugar unless I eat it out of a bag" diet?

-KJ said...

Who is doing that diet? It better not be you, Bree! I know it isn't Eric because we haven't had a Slurpee intervention for him yet.

Eliza said...

Yeah if bree is on that diet then I need to be on the "no eating food" diet

Bree :--) said...

Ok, ok, so I said it wrong...it's not a "no eating processed sugar" diet, it's more like "no rotting your teeth out" diet, or "no living off candy bars for every meal" diet!

Can you even consider that a diet? Seriously. I swear I'm not trying to lose weight.

And for real, when is the Slurpee intervention going to start? I'm ready at any time, you say the word, and I'm there!

Ryan Nelson said...

Mmmm, slurpees...Processed sugarrrr hahharrahharr (Homer Simpson sounds)

Eliza said...

I'm there for the intervention...should it be potluck? If so I can bring the coke slurpees.

Ryan Nelson said...

No slurpee interventions! Thats ridiculous. We're having Slurpee conventions. And yes, Liza Honey, bring coke. We're gunna need all we can get if we're to get this convention rollin and up to speed.

-KJ said...

Sounds like a party to me! First one to get a brain freeze wins!
