Mommy Day, Graduation Count Down, and unexpected blessings?

Today, as you all may know, is Mother's Day. I love my mom very very very very very much and, even though I don't have the money to buy her a beautiful gift, I wanted to make today really special. So what did I do? I was obediant! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but I've found that usually it's what moms want the most. Another gift I gave to her is absolute reassurance that I will be graduating on June 12th of this year, which is beautifully on time. It's been a long hard road working up to graduation with a lot of bumps, tears, and stress, but I simply can't wait for it to get here.
My two amazing best friends in the whole wide world, Laura and Kevin (who also doubles in this feature film in the role of my true love, oh how those two so often combine ^_^), will be there with my amazing family to cheer me on as I wiggle my toosh goodbye to the dreaded high school and all that goes with it!! Laura is flying in from one of the greatest cities on earth, Chicago, just to be with me as I graduate and party it up Dida-style for the week of and a little afterwards. This is such a huge blessing to have her here that I simply can't contain myself!!
My oh so wonderful Kevin surprised me with a bit of news yesterday. Apparently, we will be heading to Viva Las Vegas at some point during the summer so that I can meet his dad. No, we will not be heading back with matching bands decorating our ring fingers. I already promised mom that one. But it will be very interesting meeting this man. In the year and a half (so far) that we've been together, I've never even spoken to him. I'm a little (ok way more than a little) nervous. Will he like me? Will he be happy for Kevin and I? These questions riddle my math addled mind. I do hope he does and is. I'm quite anxious for this trip as well as my family's Disneyland trip at the end of June-beginning of July. I believe there will be some more fun and unexpected trips this summer as well, but as for now those are the only two I'm aware of.
I'm so very tired of math!!! Thank the Lord that I only have one more math test and then I won't have to think on it again until the fall when I start Sierra College. I keep kicking myself because I need to take the assessment test and have an orientation. Life has been so nutty that I keep forgetting. I'm so mad! But as Alice beautifully said, "I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are."
I know my post is all over the place, but so is my brain!! Between math, graduation, my loving Kevin, Laura coming to town, and meeting Kevin's dad? I'm not sure when I'll be able to have a normal thought again! Something such as "I'd like some toast" or "Maybe I should wear some sunscreen". We shall see in time! I'm sure it will only take until my schoolwork is all done and graduation is simply breaths away. Until my next post.....
I love you all, mad people.
