i meant to write last week, it didn't happen that much is obvious.
well i don't know anything about the IRS yet. so thats still stressful.
another stressful thing, was the boys phone situation, he had to call insurance and pay a deductible. blah. but not only that he had a loaner phone we had just basic one. so he had no contacts. and we were waiting for a call potentially from a person that might help with the IRS stuff. so while the boy was one the phone with insurance the other phone rang. and it had a texas area code which is where that person is from. so i had to answer it. i don't like talking on the phone in general. but i had to. so i answered it, but it wasn't that person. UGH it was the boys dad, now i'm not too fond of his parents they are super irritating and condescending and they put a religious spin on everything to make themselves look better. so it was awkward to talk to his dad. mostly the convo went like this...
him: so you guys are together pretty much every night?
him: well you guys must like each other.
me: just a little bit
him: well i hope its more than a little bit since you are planning or talking about getting married.
me: uh yeah.
SO AWKWARD. they don't know how to take sarcasm and now it was a big thing like they were trying to be nice when the boy called him back but they don't get me and my humor. they play it off as i'm funny but its so awkward cause now they are all who is this girl and why is she with my son. they already think we are unequally yolked because of the fact that i don't speak in tongues. according to them everyone has to have ALL gifts that the bible talks about. but whatever i live in seattle they live in texas. and thats how it shall stay. his parents are nuts. not a fan.
another person who i'm not a fan of is my grandma. shes so unrealistic. yesterday was her birthday she apparently was so sad that none of the grandkids called her or made a big deal cause it was her 75th birthday. well let me tell you this granny, you treat people like crap and you don't give anyone the benefit of the doubt and you expect everyone to fawn all over you on your birthday? yeah right. just last week she had called my cell and basically screamed at me asking where my mom was, cause she miscommunicated the whole outing. and i was like gee thanks i did nothing to you lady. its not like our family is close anyways. but really you cannot expect everyone to drop everything for you when you treat all of us so badly. she puts the dogs she takes care of first in everything. she uses them as an excuse and never spends time with us. and she also expects that when she doesn't do anything for us. like throwing money at us is a great thing and its in place of memories and that makes it all better. well you have treated my cousin and her family like crap and so has the rest of the family. i just don't see the point. she has said some really screwed up things lately and its just very infuriating to have a grandma who wasn't a grandma to me. shes the only one i've ever had and when i see others relationships with their grandparents its just depressing to me. i wish i knew what it was like to have a loving extended family. all i know is a family that doesn't communicate and most of them have extreme hot heads. no wonder why grandpa doesn't go anywhere or do anything she screams at him all the time and most of the time its for no reason. there aren't really any happy holidays going on around here. its sad.
in other happy news these are the crafty things i've done lately.
this is the poncho i made for my neighbor:
and this is the dog bed and the blanket i made for someone at church:
