So, yesterday was pretty solidly the worst day of the year.
My mother went on vacation for four days on Wednesday, and was scheduled to come back on Sunday. She called last night and said she didn’t have any intention of coming home.
That leaves me, my sister, and my nephew with an apartment we can’t afford and no way to pay the rent this month. Out-motherfucking-standing. Best day of my life, right there.
***Advice: Don’t share an apartment with unreliable family members, people, even if they’re your mother. ~_~***
So, after many shouting matches, tears, and urges to break things, I’m looking for a home for my Jack Russell and moving to Florida to stay with my father until I get on my feet. It’s a shitty situation, since I pretty much hate Florida, and I really love my dog, but life goes on, I suppose.
This is my last night off before I start packing the few things I can take with me, schedule a UPS pick up, and try to find a ride to the airport next week. I know my blog has been suffering anyway, but… just a little longer and I’ll be back.
A soothing picture of a tree... to make my brain stop melting.
Not that that picture is working out for me. It’s a pretty tree by a bank, though. I wonder how many random pictures I have on my camera just from my many pointless trips around town…?
Anyway, I’m moving this weekend, to Southbridge, MA. So much for attempting to move up in the world. I suppose I should stop complaining seeing as we’re moving because the apartment building we’re living in now was condemned and deemed unfit for human habitation by the health department. That’s FANTASTIC, really. All of our windows have ceased to function, our kitchen and laundry room ceilings have caved in and flooded those rooms with yellow water, our living room has a leak in the ceiling, and there’s lead paint that was supposed to have been removed before my very adorable nephew was born. The front hall is our land lord’s storage closet, so that’s deemed a fire hazard. Our front AND back doors don’t fit on their frames. The floors are separating from the walls. OH THE LIST GOES ON!
At least the new place is livable, even if it’s in a pretty sketchy area (no matter how historically idyllic the town website tries to make it look).
I live in the apartment complex behind this library. Thank the gods for decent placement, huh?
This move may take me away from the internet (and subsequently Goggles & Lace) for a week or so, though I’m hoping that isn’t the case. I’m something of an internet junkie, so I can generally find some means of getting my fix.
Wish me luck! I shall miss you all! =[
