It seems like every year around this time my life fills with shit. This year I have a slew of things.
Let's start with my boss who is a freak and doesn't know how to organize her work, she doesn't give a shit about work and everyone in her wake is affected.
Then there's the bf who is generally a good person but on occasion he lets a phrase fly and I get angry and I wonder if it's me who's too sensitive or if he was just being an asshole.
Back home I have some property, turns out the main water line sprung it's third leak in 3 years so we have to change the whole line. It's gonna cost me $4500 to get that done, but that's not all... nooooo, it can't be all. The chimney is pulling away from the house so we have to get someone in to look at that. Rebuilding the chimney is going to cost a butt load of money. Fingers crossed we don't have to do that.
My uncle: he was diagnosed with the same cancer my mother had, I spoke about this in a previous post. Turns out my only contact from home who is in touch with him on a regular basis hasn't heard from him in a while. When we tried to get in touch with someone else about it they said that his physical health is doing quite well but morally he's very down. This is also due to the fact that ANOTHER great uncle of mine just passed and one is in hospital. I barely knew either men. My family is quickly dwindling though and it affects me whether I want it to or not.
The Bf's niece was in a mental institute, they thought she had some kind of personality disorder, turns out she's on some kind of heavy drug like crack or heroin yet she won't admit it to anyone. They've got her on Methadone. She started coming to see me because she wants to do some crafts to sell at a local market. I was helping her out for a couple weeks, but in the middle of it all she left home (she's twenty but lives with her parents and brother) to live with what we assume is her current boyfriend. We're worried she's going to relapse. Her parent's won't talk to anyone about what's "really" going on so we're all pretending like we don't know. Tomorrow she has the fair so we'll see if she show's up with the crafts and with her boyfriend, he's supposedly helping out.
I wanted to go out last weekend. I called a couple friends but no-one was free. It was depressing. Not having grown up in the area I often feel like I lack a real network of friends. I feel like I need to make some new ones but as a busy adult how does that even work?
Enough bitching... back to life.
