First week of school terrible

  1. Well, it started off fine, but got progressively worse. When I came home from skills lab on Tuesday I found out my aunt died. That was really hard for me because she was my mom's big sister and seeing my mom so sad was really hard for me. I took my mom to the airport Wednesday morning around 5am and had to be at work by 8am. Needless to say, I didn't get any sleep Tuesday so Weds @ work I was not only sad, but grouchy.

    I'm now playing catch up with my studies and trying to help my mom out with everything. Thank goodness I have 2 older sisters to help too. I decided to take today off from work because I am exhausted so when I went to ask my boss for the day off for bereavement time she said okay, but I have to bring in proof of death. I guess an obituary or something. Maybe it's me, but I think that's a little crass, but I guess it's the world we live in today.

    Anyway, woke up this morning to find there's a water main break outside my apt building so there's no water! I'm hoping it only gets better from this point on. Just needed to vent.

    If it helps, know that all the bad stuff usually happens at the same time and then GOES AWAY. A few days or a week from now you should be comparably stress free.

    Hang in there and vent away.
