After preaching endlessly to my kids about the pettiness of being vindictive, I went and did it myself. E has my cell phone. She was supposed to take the sim card out of her broken phone and put it in mine, then send me my sim card so I can activate the cool new one that i have. Well, she threw her phone somewhere in a fit of anger with BG, so she doesn't have her sim card now, and she's just been using my phone. I don't mind so much, except it's been a couple of weeks and I would like to have it back. So, I went to the Cingular store and had them activate my number on my new phone. E is SOL. Holly will probably get mad since we are going down there soon to exchange cars and we will have mucho difficulty getting hold of her. I let my petty side take over and it is too late to fix now.

my toe hurts

okay - it isn't broken, and it was doing much better after the mess earlier this week, then I stubbed it this morning and it still hurts. that was my whine for the day.

We have tons and tons to do before the trip next month. We missed all the deadlines for getting passports for everyone. Now, we're just trying to make sure that all of the kids have photo id's. Holly is going to take them all down to DPS to get state issued id's, at least for the ones that don't have driver's licenses.

btw - Ro passed her driving test!! She officially has a driver's license!! Tons of driving stress has just been sloughed off!!

That should be all the id the two eighteen year olds and E (if she still decides to go) need. Melinda and S will need id plus paperwork that shows they are in care and we have custody and the court gives them permission to travel with us. We carry a green zip binder with all the info in it when we travel. I wonder if we still need to have their birth certificates to prove they are US citizens. yikes.

I just want to go and have everything be fine and to get married.

by the end of the summer, Holly and I and the twins will have passports, I swear. The paperwork is complete for Holly and me, we just have to get off our butts and take it to the post office. My adoption has not yet gone through, so we will wait until it does to do the twins, so that both our names will be in all the official places. It should go through soon, though.

We plan on adopting S in November. She will be sixteen then, and eligible for the max amount of state benefits. Her freakin' case worker still has not done the paperwork to get her name change the judge ordered 18 mo ago official, so I guess we'll just wait until we the adoption is final and use that for the name change so she doesn't have to do a change on her passport.

sounds about right.

Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.
