Photobucket, it was really not necessary for you to send me five copies of the exact same email about your new products.

Sorry for the delay in the next update. I’m on a deadline right now and my husband’s work schedule has changed, which means I don’t have as much uninterrupted time as I did before. Hopefully I’ll get the next post up before the end of the day tomorrow!

Additional note

I was in a rush when writing yesterday’s post, so I forgot to add this note about how I’m handling patients at Oaktowne Place. All patients are required to learn lifelong happiness and anger management before they can be released. It’s a way that I give more focus on the “treatment” part of the treatment center rather than it just being a place that they live in for a little while, talk and play games, and then go home.

Winter 2011/2012: Audrey Sutton is 22 (Emma Sutton is 22, Sunny Sutton is 53)

Soundtrack: “From Where You Are” – Lifehouse

Audrey tried. Despite what anyone else thinks, she did try.

When she first arrived at Oaktowne Place Treatment Center in Arcadia after being sent straight there from the hospital, she tried to make the best of the situation. She tried to get to know the other patients there. Even though she hates mahjong, she accepted that first invitation to join them.

But she’s not like them. First of all, she doesn’t even belong here. She’s not an addict. Things just got a little out of hand. She got careless, forgot just how many pills she had already taken that day. It’s not the huge crisis that everyone is making it out to be.

PSU Fall 2011 Semester: Darcy Sutton is 19, Edwin Chase is 22

Darcy Sutton breathes evenly, letting the air fill her lungs and then slowly escape as she focuses on the movement of her legs and the steady whirring of the exercise bike. It’s 5:00am and everyone else in Jarman Hall is asleep. But this is Darcy’s favorite time, when she’s the only one awake in the still night and she can let her mind go blank as she works through her exercise routine.

“I’m pleased to inform you that you will be receiving a refund on your taxes,” Iris Revenue says. “You’ll be getting a check for $2,454.”

Terri frowns. “That’s all?” she asks.

Ms. Revenue clears her throat. “Well, it’s a very good amount for a refund.”
