Ok, I'm about to scream... On the inside...
I keep all of this locked inside to be helpful and prove I'm mature and can handle everything, but I really need to vent.
My Mom has been sick for over two years now. She got some kind of rash that has spread across most of her body and she has messed her skin up pretty bad scratching because of the itching and burning. Her doctor was an idiot and only (unsuccessfully) treated the symptoms, and didn't try to find the cause.
It was bad. She has cried every day for a year, and has been in really bad shape. So bad that I've been wondering about maybe getting an apartment this summer, instead of waiting until after my freshman year of college, just so I can escape the depressing life I've been stuck in.
Today she FINALLY went to a different doctor (who a nurse friend recommended) and he told her that she has a staff infection and Sunday he is putting her in the hospital for two weeks.
Ok, I am homeschooled, so I'll be here to take care of my brother and get the house clean. The doctor said the entire house has to be completely cleaned before she can come back. I've always done a lot around the house, but that past year and a half I've had to do a lot more because she just can't. So I will have to clean 1-2 rooms a day washing any fabrics in the neighbor's washing machine (the hot water on ours is broken so we've only been using cold water) move all furniture and vacuum, borrow a steam cleaner and clean with it, and wash everything with bleach-water.
My dad works Wednesday -Sunday which is good and bad.
Good because he won't be in my way
Bad because I don't have my driver's licenses and someone needs to pay bills next week. He gets paid on Wednesday the 7th and they have to be paid that week and he won't get off work until 4:30 and he works an hour from town so there is no way he could pay anything on his way home before 5:00 (when everything closes).
Also, my brother has some medical problems so I'll have to pay extra attention to him since it'll just be us. I've already promised to play Wii with him 30-45 minutes every night, as long as he doesn't keep bugging me to play more, since I still have other stuff to do.
Now, I know you're probably thinking "well, he won't be able to do anything with the workshop", but on the contrary: Two weeks at home mostly alone with my brother. After I clean a room or two each day, what else do I have to do? lol
So please, help me stay sane... Wow. I'm asking the Nintendorks to keep me sane.
I'll get through it.
I'm really amazed that i didn't sound whiny and it all made sense seeing as I typed that at 4:0 AM. hah...
Yes, I expect the flood of meat-filled* foods to arrive any day now. (*I don't eat meat. I really hope that crosses SOMEONE'S mind...)
Well, we went to town today to get some last minute stuff before she leaves.
She'll leave in the morning and has to be there at 8:00.
I wasn't going to start the cleaning until Monday or Tuesday, but I'll have to clean black spray paint off the kitchen floor/cabinets tomorrow. (A can of black spray paint fell off a shelf when I moved a box from the closet and busted! )
But yeah, today has been pretty good. I got $80 worth of clothed from Rue 21 for only $50 something and I'm rambling on and on now aren't I?
