Hi guys.  Bad news.  My neighbor, Dr. Stumpe, passed away this morning.  I woke up to my dad telling me that Mr. Stumpe was dead.  I watched them bring him out and went to be alone and cry it out a little before lunch.  Luckily Dad left me alone.  Don't worry, I'm all right now.  I just needed to get it out of my system.  He was sick for a very long time and I think I was more or less prepared for it.  At least he died at home and his family was with him.

I really don't know what Mrs. Stumpe is going to do now.  I assume their house is paid for, so she may be able to stay, but if she has to move that brings about a whole new set of about 6000 problems, number 1 being the cats.  She has an indoor cat (Daisy, girl) and apparently 6 outdoor cats.  We thought it was only Izzy (boy), Kit Kat (unknown), and Curious George (who is actually confirmed to be a boy and was just taking care of the kittens, not the mother of the kittens).  But we peeked through the fence and there are 7 bowls lined up in a row.  So apparently there are more cats than we thought.  There may be a new litter of 3 or 4 that is not brave enough or big enough to venture into our yard yet.  I'm thinking that's probably the case.  Anyway, if she leaves I doubt the new owners would feed that many feral cats, so then some of them might starve.  And I don't know if a retirement home would let her keep Daisy.

Also the new neighbors may suck.  The Stumpes cannot be beat.  They are the most awesome neighbors anyone could ask for.

On Sunday, we weren't too busy at work because most of the kids were just ending Spring Break, so I had time to roam around and talk a little with the other instructors and students.  I was going to ask Hyun if he wanted to be my new walking buddy since Michael has moved away. (I don't think I mentioned that).  Anyway, before I could even ask him he was like "I have a question for you."  My first thought was "oh yeah, like I can answer the genius boy's question."  Luckily it was not academic.  He wanted to ask me how to ask a girl to prom.  So precious.  He's just adorable.  So he got a lot of answers from me and the other students.  :D  He's a junior in high school, so he's probably 16 or 17.  I know that's not that young, but I have 9-10 years on him, so to me he's like a child.  And he is utterly adorable.  Sweet, polite, adorable.  I don't know what it is about LAMP, but he and Dontavious are both just adorable.  lol.

So in other news, it is my parents' anniversary.  They have now been married for 36 years.  Congrats.

Let me tell you a funny story about cards.  So their anniversary is today and Easter is Sunday right, so I should have gotten 4 cards: one for each parent for each holiday.  I made my mom an anniversary card since I forgot to get her one and she loves cards.  I couldn't deny her that.  So I give dad the card I thought was for the anniversary but was actually for Easter.  So he didn't get a car for anniversary and now I don't have a card for mom for Easter.  So difficult I tell you.  lol.  He was a good sport though and let me laugh it off.  But it was stupid on my part.  XD

In more other news, Dad came in today saying that I had mail, which I never have.  I took one look at it and was about to trash it 'cause it said Phi Kappa Phi or something like that.  I was like NO SORORITIES>>>>>>.  But Dad told me that I should probably read and join it because it would look good on my resume.  It's not actually a sorority.  It's a schoolwide honor society for the students who rank in the top 10% of the University.  So it's nice that I'm one of the best I guess.  lol.  I may join it since I graduate in a year anyway, but I'm not looking forward to whatever social events this will require me to attend.  And I will not be wearing no silly pink t-shirt with Greek letters on it and short shorts.  I refuse.

Something funny about that was that when my dad read the letter he looks at me and just says, and I quote, "You ought to email it to Bitchface and rub it in."  I just sat there and laughed.  Such a way with words.

Also, in class, we were going over alternative medicine techniques.  When we got to acupuncture, she had a vi deo of it.  As soon as the first needle went in most of the class gasped.  It was too funny because everyone did the same thing at the same time, so it was completely collective.  She just sat there and smirked as she watched us.  Then when we got to Reiki, the girl with the tattoos just busted out laughing.  The Reiki video was only 3 minutes, but it seemed to go on forever.  Most of the class was snickering the whole time.  We had an interesting class tonight.  LOL.

Oh, and I apparently also didn't mention that I broke up with Dana on February 21.  He was not serious, and I want a serious relationship, so I insisted we part ways.  It was amicable.  Most drama-free end to a relationship I've ever had.  Except maybe the mutual breakup of me and the frat boy.

Anyway, I think that's all the news for tonight.  Later.

Oh my God man.  There have been cop cars in front of the neighbors house for over an hour now.  First three, then two, now one.  I know I don't have the right to open my front door and ask what the hell is happening, but I want to so badly.  The cops just left and the neighbors friends followed them in their truck, but there are still four cops talking in a huddle in the middle of the street.  Where's the other car?  Anyway, I know he's a sociopath, so I just hope he isn't the next Ted Bundy and the cops caught him with a dead body in his tailgate.  Freaky man.  Maybe drugs.  Rape?  Torture murder?  All of the above?  God only knows with these crazies.

I did write for a reason though.  Does anyone know what procedure I need to go through if  I want to give the police evidence?  I have something I think might be useful but I have no idea if  I don't know what they did.  I'm on the fence about what to do......

I don't know why I'm so freaked out.  I mean how many times have I wanted to call the cops on these whackoes?  So many.  And now that the cops have busted them for something huge I get freaked out?  I should be doing a victory dance.  Emotions are weird.

The cops just left now, an hour after I discovered they were out there.  Now that I don't have anything to peek through the window at maybe I can sleep.  3:45 in the morning...  I discovered the cops when I went to get water at about 2:30 and spent a while debating on what to do.  I finally got my patents up about 2:50 and they looked out the window for all of 1 minute and decided that the boy must have been driving drink and told me to go back to bed.  But you don't have six cops at your house for over an hour because you drove drunk.

Anyway, excuse the rambling.  This is like the least organized journal ever.   It's really late and there's no one to talk to about it at this hour, so I turned to the Internet.  And I see that I have let my membership lapse.  They should send out emails or something to tell you when that happens.

Frank by rachelsnowden15
Frank
Frank was such a sweet little boy.  He was in my group, so this is another one for the coat hangers.  He seems a little more interested in the iPad than me, but that happens.  lol  He was kind enough to throw up his arm and pose.  When Frank came to the ECC he couldn't speak English at all.  I was really shocked by how much he learned in 11 weeks.  Kids are amazing!  Another success story.  :D

Dana by rachelsnowden15
Dana
Dana was the newest addition to my group.  She came late in the year and was placed with me.  She and Avery were my two little baby ducks.  This is another photo for the coat hangers.  She was a sweet little girl who liked me right away.  I held her for her entire first day, since she didn't want to interact yet with the others.  This is her second day.  I was so proud when she went off and started playing with the other kids, so I had to snap a photo!
