December 1st: First set of my last classes for the semester begins.
December 2nd: First snowfall, only a light powdering. Jack-Luigi celebrates by creating the first yellow snow of the season. (Hurrah, hurray! I get to keep him after all! I'll explain in a minute.)
December 3rd: My friend M-Lit helps me put up Chrsitmas decorations and the tree. Took out the garbage, only to pull my knee and cut myself on a broken ball ornament I threw away.
Anyway, as it turns out, Mom decided that Jack-Luigi would be better off staying with us, because even if he does belong to that family, they did absolutely nothing to try and find him: no ads in the paper, no "LOST" posters, nothing on the Internet; Mom and Stepfather checked all those more than once. Plus we feel he may have been abused from the way he used to cower when we approached him a certain way. We're keeping Jack as a moral obligation to protect him, and because we love him so much. I'm very happy! ^o^
M-Lit is having a lot of problems lately. Her exercise bike broke, and she's worried she won't have any way to execise, which is ridiculous, but she's a *bit* mentally slow. I don't know her exact condition. I wish I did. I could tell you everything else that's bothering her, but I'm too tired. Let's just say that she's a total emotional train wreck. :( I feel for her, I really do. I hate seeing her suffer. I talked to her mom over the phone (she's part of the problem, BTW), and I got emotional and everything. Her mom's not mad about my confronting her: actually, she's upset at M-Lit for making me upset. Let's just say M-Lit's mom isn't the brightest person in the world. She has a slightly bigger heart than most people, but she's ignorant and impatient. I know way too many people like her... it drives me nuts. They're good people, but bad at sympathy and understanding. Not to mention almost the worst at communication.
