Welcome to the first installment of the Bee Legacy.

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 out...here's a link to my PayPal account. Thanks for the good wishes, prayers, etc...!
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!
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.
