Reharmonization: Update on life

So... March now. I kept telling myself during the kissmyass rush that I would be fine come the new year. I got so proven wrong. Thank you fates. Really, ladies, I have more to thank than I can gather in my mind.

I have my father back in more ways than one. He came back physically 3 weeks ago, but during his stay in the hospital and nursing home, he came back in greater ways.

I think I garnered an understanding of him, and no longer fear is words. Tho I still disagree with him, I listen more. I understand more of his motives and actions than I have ever in my life.

I know he cares for me as a son, and loves me just the same.

I know he has more than just an inkling that I am Pagan (While still in the hospital, christian's god was mentioned. My mom belied she said, my dad said he did not. "And Jeff... he probably believes in some Druid god or something." I was a deer in headlights: a little closer than I had imagined. ^_^), which is comforting to know when I have to one day say it out loud.

"... I thank thee Fates for the trials you've put me through, for those trials have made me stronger. I thank thee."
~~~~~~~~~
Everything in my home life is getting not back to normal, but reharmonized. That is to say better than it was when I... shit I don't know what to call January. A bad dream? Nightmare? Awakening? Mayhaps all of that happened.

My mother came back from the hospital much sooner than dad, at only 5 days. By that point most of the house had already changed. Seizing the opportunity, my sister cleaned up most of the house. Still looks nice.

We (sis and I) painted a good bit of the hallways just before dad came back. That helped so much.

And Dad gets to go back to work Thursday. ^_^
~~~~
Work is still taxing, and as much as I gripe, I take it in stride. We have had several people leave (Notably Cornilia... the cutie that became a sociopath by the time she left, stealing so much from the office it was sickening). But I digress, I got a cool job and good pay and good benefits ^_^.

and I get a Tax refund... soon I hope ^_^.

Happy ******* new year

Lemmie see if I can give a basic rundown of events for the past 30 days for me.

First my sister lost her job at the Radio station. They laid off her and more than a few other people who were making money. Best bets are on a sale of the station, bases on emails sent in and around that time.

'But Wait! There's more!' I did not have a happy new years. I got sick. Bronchitis, and a rather bad case of it at that. In fact, I still have it. Went to the doctors, and got an antibiotic, antihistamine (Benadryll only stronger), and an Inhaler... like you'd see on someone with Asthma. Thats how bad I feel at the moment. Sleep is not easy for me at all, with my coughing keeping me up half the night.

Then my mother has to be sick as well. But I will make light of it considering she's in an electric wheelchair (since I was 15)... She's got more important things to think about.


All of which leads to my most happiest thought: My father. He's in the hospital. Cellutitis, def: Infection of the soft tissues. 2 places on my fathers foot have gone from fire red to purple. He had to admitted to the hospital yesterday. He, right now, is so close.... no, I dare not think that. NO.

*wipes tears from eyes* He has trouble breathing, coughs a lot. Sleep, even in the hospital right now, is hard for him. I haven't had a chance to visit yet, but I will soon. Hopefully he will be out in 4-5 days. But even then, he might not be back to work for a month!!! Given the above (Sister out of work, mom gets a small check from SS), I will be the only one with a substantial income for a while.... unless my sister finds a job.

<<Appending>>
Monday morning, at 3am, I finally got back from taking my mother to the hospital as well. For pneumonia. I had to take her at midnight and stayed until she was in her room. Called in the next day.

Welcome to my fucked up world.

<<appending again>>>
Its amazing when kind people show up in your life.

for setup, lemmie tell you about my work hierarchy, just so you understand
 
> = next level up
 
 Me and Dustin > Mary Jo > Kim
 
 Kim is the person who got my resume, hired me,  and rules over my division HR wise

Kim came to me this morning to see how things were going. Before leaving, she mentioned that if I needed/wanted to leave early that I did not need to put it on my timecard and it would be between her and I. And if my boss doesn't come in tomorrow again (sick), It will be since I'll hand my timecard to her.. I have no time off left at the moment, so this is a godsend of an idea.
 
A few hours later my 2nd, Dustin, called. He said today for college was just orientation (and since he's a junior, this is a 'yeah, again?'), and he had already done all his errands for the day. He offered to come in, if I wanted, since he knew about mom and dad.Guess how long I thought about these 2 facts before I got set up to get out of there ^_^.

I am probably a lot happier and calmer tonight than I have been in the past few nights. Really.

Thank you all for the post. I know their worth, which is much.

Dave won

Re: CL (see previous)

He won. With only 22 people voting (including myself), Anubis won with a landslide of 20 votes. Two of the four running dropped out at only 16 votes, and the 4th never got a one. I saw it comming, really I did.

Side notes: "Earth and Beyond" and "Crescent Lake"

I'll do it in reverse order:

www.crescentlake.net
This has been my home for, what, 4 years. I joined the RPG community there a short 4 months after its inception. I have see its highs, met fascinating ppl (One of which is Dani, to whom I call Kindred and friend),... and seen it's lows. And whoa, have the lows been there for a while. In a effort to give some breathing room to revamp the site, two years ago the Dark Ages project was started. Basics of this was to shut down the majority of the site and allow others to rework it. Note I said "2 years" ago here. This revamp was supposed to be quick. Obviously it was not.

Flashforward (Faster than fastforward and more abrupt) to this past Sunday. As time when on, Baja (Rod) and Maul (Matt) became the leaders (of what has become a dictatorship) of CL. On the 8 of December, 2002, a prayer was answered. Behind the scenes, I have been privy and partner to many a scheme to either buy out or overthrow these two jackasses. But they decided to leave on their own. They are leaving ownership of the site (which is payed in full for the next year or so) to the next leader. Passwords, keys n' all. And my dear friend/lead partner in crime for some of the aforementioned plans Anubis (Dave) is in position to be that elected leader. I am actually happy for this turn of events.

Side note: http://www.earthandbeyond.ea.com
Addictive. Everquest in space. 5 shards/galaxy/server sets to play on. Numerous skills, abilities. Unique leveling system (3 types of exp: Trade, Explore, Combat. Gain levels independently. 150 levels total (50 each type)) Just plain addictive.

If you join, remember that Darkrowan79 referred you. And If you want to look for me, I play on Galileo Shard, with either Bonesaw or IncredibleHulk.
