I still think Kit's costume is the scariest thing I saw all last night. I am still kinda creeped out.

Thank you all who came out and participated in the boy's b-day Tuesday night. It was so successful, he spent all Wednesday in bed recovering.
He was literally speechless when we gave him his present, a card with the sailing lesson description inside. Thankfully, Wednesday is the first office day of the sailing company, as they called first thing Wednesday morning. Had they called a day earlier, it would have blown the surprise.
Tonight we are going to have the Wednesday we missed. I already took him out for pumpkin pancakes. Later we are going to a movie and then to MEAT for a bit more celebration. I am sure we will see plenty of you there.

As a lot of you know, Kit's dad was diagnosed with cancer last october with a very bad prognosis. He was originally only given to Christmas to live, and then given 6 months. Both those timetables have passed and he is thankfully still doing well for his condition, but is not by any stretch of the imagination recovered.
Needless to say, we want to go visit him as soon as humanly possible. Kit and I visited him when we found out in October. It was Kit's first time seeing his dad in 6 years. His dad was so doped up on meds, he does not remember us being there. We don't want to put the trip off just in case.

My dad was diagnosed with diabetes just over a year ago. He lost a lot of weight really fast, in the unhealthy fashion of the sick. He is tired all the time. Now he has a growth in his chest. Luckily it is not in his lungs, but it is on the inside of his ribs and getting bigger. In 1-2 weeks they are going to operate removing the lump and sections of the ribs it is attached to. Not a small procedure. He is already thin and weak, and this worries me.
Needless to say, I want to be there with him before he goes under and when he comes out. I want to be there for him AND my mommy.

Now, the problem... this would have been financially difficult before Kits shifts got cut at DNA. Before I found out about my dad's surgery, I was (and still am) planning on getting another job for the summer. But I don't even know how to go about applying for work when one already needs time off. Okay, this works for some office job positions, but not usually for highly coveted jobs like bartenders where work can't be scheduled or put off for a day. If they have to replace you for a week, they replace you for good, generally.
I need to figure out how to get money for the trip and how to pay rent when gone. I can't not just go.
Ug-itty ug ug.
