Some of you know I've been seeing a guy for 4 months now. His name is Jesse. I know I don't update here very much anymore, but I just really wanted to share my happiness here with y'all. I am happier now than I have been in a very long time. I had been so unhappy for so long, I had forgotten what being happy felt like. And now I am getting a chance to learn again.

Subject:Crowded and Weird
Time:11:32 am
Well, things have gotten even more crowded and weird here in South Carolina. On wednesday, Brandyn moved down from Ohio. He lost his job and hasn't been able to find anything else, and could no longer afford to live on his own. So he's moved i here, too. So now he and I have to share a bedroom. Very weird having to share a bedroom with my brother, but oh, well.

We've spent the last several days moving everyone and everything around. I was sleeping in the smaller room (the computer room), and Mema had the slightly larger guest room. Now Mema is in the smaller room, the computer is in the dining room, and Brandyn and I are in the larger guest room. Mom and Phil bought a second twin bed so there are 2 twin beds in the room Brandyn and I are sharing. We had to move all Mema's stuff over to the computer room and all my stuff to the guest room, and change some furniture around, find new places for some pieces of furniture, and put together a bed that came with very vauge instructions.

It's been a little crazy here the past few days, but I think we've got everything taken care of now.

Hapy Halloween and Joyous Samhain, all!!!

Subject:Writer's Block: This material has been censored
Time:11:08 am
Do you think the government should have the right to censor the media? If you're generally against censorship, are there any circumstances under which you feel it might be warranted?


Censonship is bad, m-kay.

Subject:Mema
Time:09:40 am
Mema came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. Obviously, she is doing much better. We decided against rehab. A home health nurse will be coming to do physical therapy at the house. Still don't really know what was wrong in the first place.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers :)

Subject:Mema
Time:12:51 pm
Mema is in the hospital again - this time because she had what seems like a mini-stroke, but that is not actually what's wrong.  Sometime Friday night she woke up scared because she didn't know where she was or who she was or who Mom (her daughter) was.  This has happened before and she has gotten better within a couple days.  This time, she wasn't eating or drinking, so finally Monday morning Mom and Phil took her to the ER.  11 hours later she was finally admitted and placed in a room.  She still didn't know who she was or who Mom was, but she did understand she was in the hospital. 

Yesterday, she didn't even realize that Mom was there. 

Today, she knew who Mom was and even let Mom help her drink some, so maybe she is getting better.

I just talked with Mom via IM, and she said that Mema is going to have to go into a nursing home for some rehab when she gets out of the hospital.  No clue yet when she will get out of the hospital or long she might have to be in the nursing home.

But things are looking a little better than they did yesterday and Monday.  Monday night I was really worried. 

So please keep her in your thoughts/prayers for a little while.  She is 85 years old and going downhill rapidly.  She is the only grandparent I have left, and I know she doesn't have a heck of a lot of time left.

Subject:going to SC
Time:01:03 pm
So next weekend (Aug 1st) there is a big family reunion for Phil's side of the family.  Because someone has to be there to take care of Mema, Phil was going to come up here by himself and go to the reunion, and Mom was going to stay home with Mema.  Mom told me yesterday how upset she was that she couldn't come up here with Phil, because she wasn't going to be able to see her grandchildren who live in North Dakota who are coming here for the reunion.  She hasn't seen them in about 4.5 years.  She said she has even cried over this a few times in the last couple days, and my mother does not cry very often.

So last night I decided to see if they were willing to have me come down there starting next week to babysit Mema so they could both come up here together.  They agreed and now I just have to get my rakes fixed (they've been grinding for a little while now).  Luckily, I know someone who can do the repairs and double luckily, my step-brother works in an auto parts store and can get me a discount on the parts.

Long story short, I will be in SC for 2 or 3 weeks - not sure exactly how long.  I will be able to check email and LJ, but not much else as their internet sucks.  Feel free to call or text me.
