Just like the title says, this is so far the worst summer I have ever had. I wanted to try to keep up with checking deviantArt after the semester ended, but things have happened that keeps me from doing so. No sooner does my semester ends, my grandmother ends up in the hospital; and has remained there since. Her kidneys are failing, and has multiple infections going on. Then a few weeks ago, I found out that an uncle and aunt on my father's side have cancer. Uncle had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, aunt has breast cancer; don't know how bad hers is though. Then, to top it off, we are having financial difficulties as well. My mother would get a check every month for over $600 for taking care of my grandmother; but because it has been over 40 days since my grandmother has been home, she will no longer be getting that check and it helped with the bills. This summer SUCKS ASS! I never even feel like coming on anymore. But, I may have to try to do commissions or something to get some extra money. A couple people told me to put a Craigs List ad for commissions, but I'm not sure if that would be a good idea. I also wanted to try to find a better job this summer, but I'm not sure how good it would look if I had to call out or request off a bunch with a new job. Sorry, not trying to seem like I'm making a pity me journal here, I just needed to vent a little bit.
Well, this summer just hit an all time low. Sadly, we lost my grandmother. She went into septic shock Tuesday morning, and had died by 7:30 Tuesday evening. Mom is taking it the hardest, and walks around the house in a complete depression. So I'm doing my best to keep it together so I don't make her even more upset. My uncle's boss was so incredibly kind to pay for the services for my grandmother, she is awesome. I wish there was some way of paying her back.
This was my nana, and I am going to miss her so much.
Things just continue to get worse and worse. My grandmother got social security checks every month. So when the last one came, we called social security to see if it was ours to keep to use for rent. The woman on the phone told my mother that it was ours to keep, and we didn't have to worry about giving it back. But of course, after she had already made a money order for the rent, they tried to take it back from her account. So now she has to put it back in, and I'll have to use up what's left in my account for rent; which means we now have no money for bills or food. So if I end up disappearing from DA for good, it's because everything got turned off on us, or possibly ended up without a home. THIS SUCKS!! I just want to scream right now, it's so frustrating.
