Almost My Birthday

Well, it is almost my birthday. 35 years on Sunday. Not sure how I feel about this. I know that it's just a number, but it's higher than it used to be! lol!

Life has been eventful over the past two months. Justin's grandma decided that she had enough of fighting cancer and decided she wanted to come home to die. So that's what happened. She was home for a little over a week, we nursed her and made her as comfy as possible...and then she died. :( I know that she is with Jesus, but I miss her. My natural grandmothers died when I was young, I only have vague memories of my dad's mother...so Grandma Judi really was like a grammy to me. I'm glad that the animosity that was present when Justin and I first got together has disappeared, because I'd never have been able to get to know her at all otherwise.

With Justin not having a job, and his unemployment being patchy at first, we fell way behind in rent and they wanted to evict us. Justin's parents had just gotten a check of a large sum from the gas company leasing their land, so they actually catch us up and paid the trailor off so all we have to do is lot rent. of course, we need to pay them back...but they're willing to cut us more slack than the trailor park owners had been. And yes, I'm not sure how I feel about that either! lol! I've read to many letters in Dear Abby about these kind of situations going back. :/ We're supposed to end up having something put in writing, but it hasn't happened yet. I'd like to have a lwayer look it over before I sign it, but to be honest I'm a little intimidated to ask...maybe it I explain that it's not them I don't trust but the situation and I just want to make sure that I'm taken care of and don't get screwed.

I've written a couple of poems recently, but of course I have nothing with my so I can't post them at all! :( We haven't had phone or internet for a while now, another bill we fell behind in and need to catch up. Siiiiiiiiiiigh. Justin can apply back at Cargil in another couple of months and it so cannot come fast enough!

I've also been working on a free write for an old story idea. Maybe I'll be able to actually write it...??? idk, but it feels great to be writing, even if it's just a partial scene. Actually, it might be the end of the book...or close to it. It's been fun.

We've got 2 family reunions this weekend. One on his side and then one on my side on Sunday. Busy busy busy! Ok, guess I'd better figure out what to take huh? lol
