Last Sunday we all got ready for mass as usual and piled into the car. Only to have it not start. We need a new battery, apparently. Kyle was able to jump it, but by the time that all happened, we were too late for mass. I've been driving on battery fumes for this whole week.
It's also been making weird sounds when I turn, so I took it to discount tire and they checked over the tires. We need new tires too.
If you're running a tally, we're up to needing about $700 just for the car, which we don't have right now.
That same day, I get a call from my grandma that my uncle is being sent to hospice after being in the hospital for a few days.
I spent each evening and as much other time as possible this week with my family. There has been a lot of drama but a lot of beautiful times too. Uncle Is still hanging on. I'm exhausted, but I'm sure most everyone else in my family is far more exhausted, so I can't complain much about that.
My kids were up late each night I was gone this week, which really caught up with them yesterday and they were horrible.
Friday I went to get our money orders for rent and something glitched in their system and charged me, but didn't give me the money orders. So I had to leave the store, after they and my bank said they couldn't do anything right away, with no money and no money orders. Luckily, it was fixed the next morning and the store paid my late rent fees.
Woke up this morning to the baby saying "here go, mommy. Sorry..." She busted my glasses. Again. So, now I'm in need of new ones, new tires, a new battery, and all while a relative is dying.
Pray for me, cuz the devil is laughing, I'm sure.
