When Life Gives You Lemons, Pray That You Have Sugar for Lemonade


Boy, when the chips are down, they really are down. I'm definately ready for a break from Vegas, I just never thought it'd be under these circumstances.

Just found out my mom is in the hopsital. From what I understand, she was walking weird all day two days ago. She asked my younger sister if she was walking weird and tried to walk down the hall as straight as she can. My sister starts laughing like crazy and says that my mom is walking like she's drunk. My mom immediately drove to the ER.

I saw her earlier when I went to go visit with my kids. My mom walked across the room once or twice, and my sis was right: my mom was walking like she's on a three day bender. All the tests the doctors have done so far say that there is nothing wrong, but when she saw the physical therapist things changed. He definately said something is wrong, and he'll mention it in his written report for the doctors.

I'm hoping and not hoping that it's something serious. If it's serious, and she needs us to help take care of her, then I don't have to go to New Hampshire. But I don't want to take care of her, because that will end up biting us in the ass. I would bet money that after my mom is able to do stuff on her own again, she'd kick me and my husband out. She's done it twice before, and I'm positive she'd do it again.

We already have enough stuff on our plate. We know my husband won't get his job back. The HR lady wasn't even remotely interested in what my husband had to say. There is no way he can find a job and make enough money to take care of our bills by the end of the month. The car payment is due, his cell phone bill is due, we haven't paid utilities, and we also need the rent. All in all, we would need at least $1500 to finish out the month. Never mind the $2000 we would need for next month.

::Sigh:: His dad is willing to put up the 2 grand we would need to move there, and he's going to pay all the bills. My husband will do construction work with his dad. Which will leave me at home with the kids (same as now) only the house isn't mine and the dad is a huge neat freak which I decidedly am not.

Still waiting to see if we can get enough state aid to manage to stay here and get by. I hope so, and my husband knows how much it would mean to me to stay here. But I am starting to bow to the inevitable. But guess what, I am starting to remember little things about New Hampshire that make me sorta look forward to it. But it doesn't come near enough stuff I'll miss from here in Vegas. Let's wait and see.

I'm sorry to hear about all that. I hope things will get better and you can remain in LV instead of moving to NH. Good luck!!
