The Bee Family 1.0

Wow! I just realized that it's been over two years since I posted anything here. Life just got in the way. So, in the last two years, my computer bailed on me and I had to buy a new one. Unfortuntely, I was not able to save anythign so I've started a brand new legacy. The goal for this legacy is simply to get through 10 generations. Here's the first update!

Welcome to the first installment of the Bee Legacy.

Hey, everyone! I know it's been ages since I posted, and I hate that this is my return post, but here it is...

This summer my mother-in-law (who lived with us) was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer. She went downhill very rapidly. She was diagnosed at the beginning of May and she died at the end of June. My husband took some time off to be with her. When he went back to work they had given his run to someone else and he was not making any money on the new run. So, he quit (turned out to be agood thing since the truck he had been leasing blew up it's engine two weeks later and if he hadn't quit he would have had to pay for those repairs). He found another job, but it pays way less than his old job. We are looking for a better job for him, and I am looking for work as well, but so far nothing has panned out.

Right now we owe $1850 in rent and our landlord is threatening to evict us. We owe $400 to the electric company and they are going to shut off the electricity soon. We also owe $450 to the gas company. The gas (heat, hot water, and our stove) has been shut off since the end of July. For those who don't know or don't remember...I also have three kids. They've been great and have hardly even complained about the microwaved food and cold baths.

The point of this is that...I need help. I know things are hard for a lot of people, and if you can't help (or just flat don't want to) I understand. If you happen to have some extra money and would like to help's a link to my PayPal account. Thanks for the good wishes, prayers, etc...!

Good and Bad

So, I figured that it was about time for me to post an update of some kind! The past week has been pretty good for me as far as housework goes. I still need to do some more cleaning today than I would like, but I have kept the house a lot cleaner than I usually do. I need to get things clean today and work on organization/deep cleaning this weekend. 

The bad news...John's mom is in the hospital. She hasn't been feeling very good for the past few weeks. Turns out, she has stage 4 kidney cancer. Right now they don't know what (if anything) they can do for her. I think this is why Remington is acting out even worse than usual. He runs away, kicks me, yells a lot, and he even got sent home from school for bad behavior yesterday! This had better be a phase...he's only in kindergarten for crying out loud!

Family Drama

So, my father-in-law is in hospital. He has a mass in one kidney and blockages in both his legs (arterial blockages I think). However, nobody will be visiting him. At least, my husband and his brother will not be visiting him. Why? Because of his crazy wife (my husband's stepmom). Back in 2010 she filed petitions for restraining orders against my husband, my brother-in-law, and myself. Among the reams of crazy, she also sat there and told the judge that we use our computers to twist her intestines, and that my husband used his computer to kill his Aunt Joy from several states away. Of course, the judge told her she needed mental health treatment and denied the petitions. However, this has made us all wary of anything to do with her. My husband and brother-in-law are worried that if they visit their dad in hospital and he dies, she will try to claim they are responsible. So, they're just going to stay away.

I am 100% convinced that this woman is an undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenic. Unfortunately, her husband believes everything she says (which, in my book, makes him mentally unstable as well). I feel bad for her, but she refuses to seek help and nobody who can legally get her committed is willing to do so. I've told my husband I will not go anywhere near her, even if that means skipping functions with his family because she is there or close by. I know this is going to end up causing trouble, but the safety of my kids and myself is more important than worrying about hurting someone's feelings.

Writer's Block: Bah Humbug Day!

And...I'm going to rant about the LJ changes...but only a little. These changes suck. I found out (thanks to an awesome user I don't actually know and thus can't remember the name of) that Dreamwidth is having a one week open period where you can sign up with no trial. I'll most likely me moving everything over there. I'll post an update with my DW info when I'm done so anyone who is friends with me here can friend me there if they so choose. I'll be keeping this account open, but only to post links to my DW account in pixel_trade whenever I post a TS2 update. Aside from my dislike of the changes, I am really annoyed by how LJ is essentially ignoring the many users who have expressed their dislike of the changes. And, in case anyone from LJ is reading this...I was a paid user, but I won't be renewing my subscription come January. I'd rather spend the money at DW!
Take a deep breath. Now rant about something.
