Ok, so here we go, several weeks late, but more about that later.
No, I am not dead, I’m just severly restricted with the internet access right now. The move was INSANE, no, even that doesn’t cover it. It was everything and beyond terrible and insane mixed intogether. We were supposed to be out by 6 pm on Thurs. I left 10am on Fri morning, mom apparently didn’t leave until well after 7pm fri night. Pathetic. Since then, we’ve moved three storage units into 1.5 units at one place, and two units into one at another. This doesn’t count most of MY stuff which is in my dad’s storage, or at his office in the basement storage there.
From there, I’ve been spending every other weekend this month in Guelph (where I am right now) and have been working as much as I possible can, just to keep away from having to spend upteen hours at storage with my mother organising her shit. Which she is STILL doing and it’s driving me up the fucking WALL.
That said, I’m living just up the street from my house (on the same side of the block and everything!) with neighbours with whom I reconnected with over this summer. I’m there until the 14th of Nov, when THEY move, and I’ll have to figure out what the hell I’m doing from there…I’ll figure that out later :). As per usual.
Other than that, I’d been hanging out with the guys at work (literally) a fair amount, because they’re fun to be around, not to mention pulling a 19 hour week in the span of two days, (HUGE game release) over Mon and Tues.
Beyond that, it’s been a huge process of coming down off the stress from moving. Great news is that we DO have a house. Bad news is that we don’t move in until Nov 26th. And with that comes the again stress of having to live with my mother AND having to help her move her shit back in.
Which comes to the NEXT thing I need to dump about. Although, even with the amount I’ve talked about it, this is isn’t getting any less frustrating for me. It has to do with the house, specifically which bedroom my mom and I are getting. FIrst off, she told me she wanted the one at the back of the house, which is quiter, brighter and slightly smaller, due to the fact that an entire wall is taken up with a 1.5-2 feet deep wall of closet has been installed. Now, let’s look at what *I* have to fit into my bedroom.
My bed, which, when not fully in use, is the size of a twin, when it’s extended, it becomes a king sized bed and a night table.
A full desktop computer.
A regular desk, so I have somewhere to work and put my laptop.
A drafting table.
Tv and consols.
Next, we compare what my mother has to fit into hers.
Queen Sized bed, with night table.
and if she stays true to how the old room was, a table filled with/surrounded by porciline dolls and a rocking chair.
Who do you think has the LARGER amount of stuff?!?!?
Yeah, I thought so too.
Next, let’s take a look at the amount of clothing we have.
When I was cleaning up my room, I had exactly HALF of my walk in closet full. When I was at Uni, I could fit EVERYTHING I OWNED IN TO A VERY SMALL CLOSET.
MY MOTHER, on the other hand, had a WALL of closets, my dad’s old walk in closet, the guest bedroom closet and TWO CLOSETS in the basement FILLED.
HER bedroom has a regular, small closet in it.
Tell me, DOES THIS MAKE ANY KIND OF SENSE TO ANYONE BESIDES HER?!
Do you know WHY she wants that particular room? A) because I said *I* wanted it. B) Because she Claimes all her stuff (re sheets) is pink. I HAVE NEWS FOR HER. SHE IS A LYING BITCH!
ALL MY STUFF IS PINK BECAUSE I”M STILL USING THE CRAP SHE BOUGHT FOR ME WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL AND LET ME ASURE YOU IT”S AS PINK AS FUCKING PINK CAN BE!!!
Her’s is 90% YELLOW with little pink roses.
The thing that pisses me off the most is that she changed her mind RIGHT after I told her which room I wanted.
I have informed her that should she still stick me in that room, the wall of closet is being pulled out and I’ll make myself a fucking clothing line if I have too. Not to mention, I really don’t have much that has to hang besides work pants and dresses. That takes up about a foot of space at the most. I CAN live just with a dresser. I don’t care if she doesn’t have any where to put extra sheets or whatever, it isn’t like we’ll have a guest bedroom until I get the basement redone. And who the FUCK knows when that’ll be, cuz it isn’t like SHE has the money to do so right now. When THAT happens, the door down to the basement will be locked from the inside and *I* will live there with NO interaction with her except to pay her money for my cellphone bill and rent money. God, I can not WAIT to get out.
And on That cheery note, I’m wrapping this up. Hope you’ve enjoyed the 100th post!
