I am so sorry this is a day late, I thought that the browser ate this post!
My last post of this kind was over a month ago… I have good reason! The reason I have been gone is well. I had to have surgery. Before you all get upset and worried:
What had happened was, apparently I have massive scar tissue damage from my gastritis and a piece of my dinner got stuck in my esophagus. After hours of trying to remove it without surgery to no avail, I had to go under the knife. They also took a biopsy of my throat, not liking what they saw. Still waiting on the results.
Other than that, life has been stressful from family things, recovery and just plain bleh.
After the surgery, my lovely family on my fathers side decided that it would be a good idea to gang up on me (lovingly) on Facebook to come visit, even wanting to front the bill since it would take us forever to pay for both my husband and I to get there. Normally, just telling them the truth (we have no ride, no money) lets them know I do want to see them, but this time before I could..
a friend decided to be wonderful.
I am not upset… but we had just planned to try and start getting our life together. Next month we were planning on getting a bed, which we deperately need. We are sleeping on two old ass mattresses (two fulls) and a memory foam on top that is too big for it (a queen sized one). We planned on getting a normal king sized bed and start making payments on it. We planned on updating our kitchen, livingroom and possibly saving to go somewhere this summer close to home.
After seeing all of this… I only felt one thing about our plans.
We had been waiting and waiting. Now we had to put it all on hold. Sure, I get to see my family. On BOTH sides! I was beyond the moon, but we had been waiting YEARS for the opportunity to feel okay doing this.
We had been waiting for everything with what had been happening (Taking care of Nana, us moving and still traveling back and forth at times to see and take care of her, dealing with drama with a friends ex, almost losing our apartment due to our old land lady not processeing our paperwork, Nana’s passing, my glasses breaking, barely making ends meet due to many things, his glasses breaking and my few trips to the hospital including the last and so much more) to calm, and it felt RIGHT… then this happens.
Now, any money we had and were going to have had to go to: Clothes, gas money, travel stuff, making sure everything was secure and just UGH.
Then, my wonderful friend told me her car might be taken away.
After we get everything sorted there… then my dad tells me we have to post pone it cause he needs to do medical stuff.
I understand, I do… just… it was all at once and I just want to scream. So, now Austin and I CAN do all this… I just want a blanket and cookie.
All this stress was bad. It even broke my face out.
Other than that, I have slowly been getting back into reading. I have finished 4 books this month. Which I am damn proud of.
The Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
99 Days by Katie Cotugno
Invincible by Amy Reed
I am planning on reading maybe one more this month. Other than that, life had been okay. I plan on doing a review after this post of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy. 🙂
I guess that is it for now! I will talk to you soon. 🙂
