Since my sister has been told not to drive until her doctor gives her the go ahead to start driving again, I have been helping her with getting back and forth to various doctor appointments and some of the meetings that she attends each month with various civic organizations that she has gotten involved with. It has given us the opportunity to do some sisterly bonding which has been good for the both of us and I am glad to help her in any way that I can. Both of sisters are always doing things for me and I rarely get the opportunity to return the favors, so this is a great way for me to feel better about everything.

Last night I took her to the community center for her monthly Ruritan meeting. This was a big meeting with a good amount of “big-wigs” in attendance so she got herself all “dolled” up for this one. She wore her new tie dye dress that she bought a few months ago and hasn’t had the chance to wear. I was happy to lend her the perfect belt to wear with it to make it look just a bit more fancy with the promise of returning it as soon as possible. This is my favorite belt and I’d hate to lose it.

I just wish that I could have convinced her to wear a different pair of shoes. The ones she wore looked like the shoes that our mother and Aunt Ginny have been wearing since they stopped working and didn’t have to wear high heels anymore. I understand that comfort shoes for women are important and all and I know that they have a great variety of comfortable shoes for men and women that don’t look like “old people” shoes. In fact today I sent my sister the link to several “comfortable shoe” sites that I have found that I want her to seriously take a look at and hopefully order from in the future.

Last night was a night that I had a rough time falling asleep. It seemed as if as soon as I’d fall asleep I would wake up with a start and start tossing and turning once again. Since I couldn’t sleep I turned the TV on and found that every channel was talking about the crisis over in Japan. What I found interesting was that it is always focused on the Reactors and the issues going on with that stressful issue. Don’t get me wrong this is a serious concern, but I haven’t heard anything about the poor people that were effected by the earthquake and the tsunami, except for maybe a blurb or two once in a while how aid is finally coming to Japan by ways of bottles of water and rice.

I just heard that the Black Eyed Peas were just over in Japan, filming a new video and had left just a few days before this crisis hit. I can imagine how people were over there right before all this happened and that they are all thanking their lucky stars that they got out just in the nick of time.

There is a lot more I could talk about what is going on over there, but since I didn’t get much sleep last night I’m pooped and heading for bed in hopes of getting a decent night’s sleep tonight. Good night and God Bless.

Being the good daughter as I have found myself to be these past couple of years, I did what I was told and took a look at the house at that my father fell in love with the other night while spending some time online. It is a nice house, for sure, but I really don’t find myself in the mood to even think about packing up and moving any time soon. One of the hardest and most stressful times in our lives in moving. With my stress level all ready maxed out just the thought of everything that is involved with up and moving gives me a stomach ache.

I know that it is hard on my father having me and my kid living with him and I would really love having a place of my own but right now just isn’t a good time for me to be making a big decision like this. In the mean time my dad will continue looking around at places and I’ll continue to take a look, but I really wish he would just let up some and let me take my time and keep saving up my money so that when the time is right that I will have it all together and do it right.

The other week after talking with a few gals at work about the upcoming holidays, all I have been thinking about is Christmas presents, decorations, family dinners, and Christmas trees. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and since it was right around the corner I decided it was time to go shopping instead of waiting until the last minute to do it all and stress out.

After a few days after work shopping around at different stores in town, I decided to take a late night after the kids were in bed to search the net for some things for the upcoming holidays that I didn’t find or gather at the local stores. I came across a really neat site that offered cute snowbabies ornaments that I fell in love with. I ordered multiple ornaments since they came with an awesome price and I am so excited to decorate our Christmas tree this year and watch the kids and my father open up some of these gifts I had gathered for them.

For the past few years I have been drowning in more and more debt, it is ridiculous. I have been suffering from ovarian and breast cancer, and I have been in and out of the hospital ever since. I have been in debt since before then with medical bills and now I’m almost to the point of no return. Last week I was talking to my sister about all these issues and she brought up how she was on the net and read up about medical bankruptcy statistics and how I should apply for bankruptcy since I’m at the point I’m at now.

I really wish that I had insurance but I can’t afford it, and it’s amazing to me how much I’m being charged for things that simply shouldn’t be that costly. Ever since I had spoken to my sister and a few other family members I had been thinking about looking up some things myself about medical bankruptcy. It does seem like something I should really look into, and I am planning on making a few phone calls tomorrow to see how to get started. I hope it all works out, because if it doesn’t ill be looking at loosing everything I’ve worked so hard for my entire life, which isn’t much but I need a roof over my kids heads and my own and I’m worried we will end up at the bottom of the barrel if I don’t do something about this. I’m already working two jobs to support us I can’t afford to pay out more then I already am, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will all work out.
