Assorted Ramblings

So Daughter is sleeping in my bedroom at night because she can't sleep unless she's near me. All medication, insulin, and knives are locked up because she can't be trusted around them. Yesterday afternoon she wasn't sure what to do about NG because it turned out the whole time he was here Flasher was waiting in the car.
Yesterday evening she was asking me why they had to wait a year before they could get engaged and married. I told her sometime ago that I always counseled couples that they should be dating for at least a year before they discussed marriage. At the time, she thought it was a good idea. Every time she has a boyfriend she doesn't think it's such a good idea. She told me she wants to live independently-- but she's clinging to me
One of the women in the church is a case manager at the sheltered workshop. This morning she warned me that one of Daughter's friends died this morning-- probably of H1N1, though they're calling it pneumonia. I told Daughter, who was appropriate in her grief.
Daughter is still hearing voices. She tried to sleep in her own room last night, and ended up wetting her bed, and it's been a very long time since she did that. If my car isn't going to be ready tomorrow, I'm going to have to rent a car. Daughter has an appointment in Big City on Tuesday with Psychiatrist. She has to get to that. I also need to get to the hospital in City tomorrow. One of our members is in the hospital with H1N1.
On a more positive note, this morning was good. Worship went well, and things are happening in a lot of areas. I had a number of conversations this morning about upcoming events. We have a board meeting this evening, and should get a lot done there. I have a number of visits I need to make this week, and Daughter has 2 doctors appointments, so it will be a busy week. I like busy weeks.

Flasher was in the car, was he really? Thats pretty creepy. Do you think is is manipulating NG ir is Ng going along with this plan willingly?

It is creepy. I think Flasher is a master manipulator. NG told me he's a weasel. My line to NG and Daughter is that they can say no-- NG did agree to go pick Flasher up, Flasher wasn't holding a gun to his head or anything. Flasher is just very persistent and manipulative and wears him down.
