I'm Still Alive...

Though I am freaking EXHAUSTED!

MrKB's Mom has been sick every day since she went to the hospital. She spent a couple of days in the hospital while doctors ran a crapload of tests, and then basically kicked her out for not having insurance. So she's still been staying with MrKB's Aunt and Uncle, and we are all just waiting to hear SOME sort of news. We don't even know the results of all the tests!! She is supposed to see a different doctor today, so hopefully I'll have something new to report soon...I dunno.

Her kids have been living with us for just over two weeks now, and I don't know how long they will continue to stay with us. They keep asking when they will go back home, and all we can tell them is that we don't know. In the meantime, I have been the one taking them back and forth to school, which I hate, because it means I have to be up way earlier than I'd like...especially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays because my nephew has tutoring before school and has to be there at 7 freaking 30 a.m.! Bleh!!! I not only have to get those two up and ready every morning, but there's my own two also, because of course I have to get them dressed and load 'em up in the carseats and take them along.

Cooking for six people every night really sucks too....especially since I HATE to cook, and ordering out is not an option since MrKB missed so much work the last couple of weeks. His paycheck last week was only $37 after taxes and child support got taken. I hate being so broke....we've actually started arguing about money lately...something we've never really done before.

My niece was a brat yesterday morning and royally pissed me off. She's grounded today because she ended the day pissing me off as well. Not a good idea to majorly piss me off first thing in the morning, and then for her to go and do it right before bedtime...GRRRRR! I tell you what, those two had better wise up and QUIT FUCKING LYING TO ME about all kinds of stuff!!! They've both been caught in lies every time they've tried and still haven't got a clue. And now they wonder why I don't believe a word out of their mouths! Well, duh!! I will ask questions of your teachers when it comes to school....I WILL find out the truth of whatever the situation is, so make all our lives easier and just tell the truth in the first place, kiddo...even if you get in trouble, you'll be in a lot less than you would be if I find out you lied to me!

Oh yeah...she also got completely banned from picking Meghan up for any reason for a long, LONG time. Remember when she dropped her while trying to put her over the baby gate?? Well, the other night her and Meghan were both in here in the living room playing. Niece kept picking her up every 2 or 3 minutes even after being repeatedly told not to pick her up so much by both me and the hubby. Well, she kept doing it, and ended up dropping her AGAIN...This time on her head!! The back of it, but still. (Meghan is okay, thankfully, but lord how she screamed!) Oh, she was in SO much trouble!

My nephew hasn't been too bad the last few days...but then again, he's been grounded for almost a week now. Grounded in our house is a whole lot different than it is at his Mom's house! All he's been allowed to do is stay on his bed and read. Period. No TV, no video games, nothing. We'll see how long the good behavior lasts when he's ungrounded...but he still won't have his video games since he is already FLUNKING the 5th grade and it's still just the first quarter!! The boy has a 28 average in math!! He brought home math homework Monday night, and he sat at the table for 4 freaking hours and didn't get a single problem done!! He refuses to seriously TRY to even do it...and it's not math that is all that was division, like 32 into 2,348 or something. Math is not all he's failing...the only real passing grades he has are in Music and Gym for fuck's sake. Yeah, so no video games until his grades are all brought up to at least a C average. D's are not acceptable any longer. (They never were to my parents at all, but his have let them slide since they were at least passing grades.)

Top it all off with not having sex lately, thanks to a particularly nasty yeast infection from all the antibiotics that were loaded into my body after surgery. TMI, I know! Yeesh...I haven't had one in years, and MrKB and Aunt BOTH had to go and say I might get one 'cuz of the antibiotics, so I blame them!! Fun stuff.

Sorry if it seems I'm just complaining in this post. I am tired. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, and it's got me in a funk big time. I'm frazzled, stressed, worried about Mom-in-law, and just life in general sucks.

I'm glad today is Friday...I'm SO finishing off that tequila that's in my freezer tonight!

I'm sorry honey. Looks as if you have alot on your plate right now. I hope your MIL gets well soon. I hate that the hospital kicks people out because they have no insurance. Especially when they haven't figured out what is wrong yet. Hang in there honey.

Chris: We DO know she's got multiple tumors in her head, and most likely lung cancer also. We just don't know what's going to be done about it yet...and in the meantime, she still suffers. :(

I'm so wishing I was drinking that ice cold tequila with you.

Geez, it has to be something in the air...everyone in blog land that I care about seems to have a sick family member or they are sick themselves or have some major worry going on. Two of them had relatives pass away.

It's time we balanced it again with some good things, don't you think? Praying for all of us.

BTW, I am really proud of are being such a rock for your hubby AND your MIL. Here's a shot of tequila to you! :)

Mel Chickk said...

Tequila Therapy, hhhmmmm. I think I like that!

I feel for ya on the cooking thing, I can hardly stand to cook for just the three of us, cooking for six...ugh!

Hugs to you and the clan.

KIDS! HOSPITALS! You've got some major stress right now! I can't believe the Tequila is still in the fridge! I'd have already downed it without waiting for Friday.....

Ryan said...

wish i was there 2 give u a big hug!

Even kind spirits such as yourself need to complain. We are here to listen, no matter what.

I can't believe you are doing all of this just after surgery. You are the one that needs to be taking it easy. I can't imagine having to get four kids up in the morning.

Just the thought of it makes me want to have some tequilla with you.

I hope you have better days soon sweetie pie!

Y'know, it's people like you that make life worth living. Even though it's stressful, those kids will always remember that it was you that was willing to take them in and *care* for them. Your MIL, too. Kudos to you. You deserve a big pat on the back and a pitcher of margaritas!

Oh man, what a rough week.

The nurse at my Dr's office told me that when you're on antibiotics to eat as much yogurt as you can stomach, like 3 or 4 yoplait's a day. It destroys the yeast and you won't get the infection.
