The Month from Hell.
OK, so a lot has gone down this month, and most of it was bad. We are reaching the tail end of most of our problems, or so we hope, and we have learned a lot, and learned to appreciate a lot more. I will give you a brief re-cap. First I blacked out and had a mini seizure, and was rushed to the urgent care just to have a urine sample done, and told I had a bladder infection. Then I flew out to help my amazing sister with her four kids for the weekend. One kid broke her toe, another had the stomach flu, and I was rushed to the ER in an ambulance because I busted an artery in my nose. Nothing we did could stop the bleeding. The upside is that Steve Young's older brother was the doctor who cauterized my non-numbed nosed. Thanks doctor Young! So with no health insurance, you can probably guess that this month was a little out of our budget. Then we get a court notice in the mail over a fix-it ticket for a broken headlight that we got in kernville. We had lost the ticket and totally forgot about it, so we had to go back up to Kernville to go to court. Scotty had to miss school just two weeks away from finals. They told us we owed $722.00 and told Scott he had to come back in later that day to appear in front of a judge. While we were waiting to go back to court we got a call from our landlord. He told us that our roomate had complained that the house was too crowded, that the animals are too much, and that we had agreed to only live there for four months when we moved in. This is all bull. This particular roomate was only home 4 days out of the entire month, and I only saw her twice. Crowded? The understanding we had was that Scotty had school for 3 years. Four months? We have an awesome dog who doesn't dig,bark,chew,poop in the house, or create any other sort of a nuisance. Then there is our rabbit who hides in the bushes all day. Then the duck. The duck had got on the deck while we were out of town (at court), and had pooped on the deck. When we got home it took me two minutes exactly to spray the deck off. No stains. That apparently had been the last straw. Crazy how something that took two seconds to fix had been the final deal breaker. So thanks a lot snotty roomate for the great communication. So now I am sitting in the midst of my packing, and needed to vent a little bit before I broke something. Scott has decided to take the summer session off of school. We are going to move back to Kernville and save up, and find a house for the following session back in Santa Barbara. We have a lot of support from friends, and even my trainer at the ranch has offered a temporary spot for the duck and rabbit while Scott finishes his last two weeks of school. I wish these things weren't necessary in order to grow and learn, but I am glad that I have my best friend to go through all of it with me. I know we will find a better home for us and our pets. Where we have normal roomates who don't leave nasty notes on our door because Scotty walks too loud, or puts the toilet seat down too loud. Who the frikk does that?! Or better yet, no roomates! Sorry for the novel of self pitty, I just needed to get it off my chest. We have faith this is all for the better. I love and miss you all. I hope your month was better than mine!
