I live in a really full house! There's me and my boyfriend, who share a room. There's Matt, who isn't part of the family but lives with us, there's my boyfriend's twin brother who lives with us, and the Mom of the twins and her Boyfriend.
This house has a dog, 2 snakes, a salamander and now at the end of this week my boyfriend's Nephew, Damian, who's about 2 and a half is going to be here for awhile.
Sometimes I just feel so crowded!
The biggest problem though, is Gary. He's got it in his head that some stupid bank in Africa is sending him 150 million dollars U.S. I'm Canadian, so that's a pretty hefty amount of money.
But what he can't seem to grasp, no matter how many times people tell him, is that it's a scam! For over three years he's been sending them thousands of dollars of money that's not his (He's been borrowing from friends, the boys' Grandma, etc.) and is just putting himself further in the hole.
He doesn't work, he just collects less than 300$ a month from WCB, and just leased himself a new truck.
My boyfriend's mom does all the working. My boyfriend was an apprentice welder and heavy duty mechanic, but recession put him out of a job, but at least his unemployment gives him 5-600$ every two weeks.
So Priscilla does all the working. She's got a really bad back, too. And it breaks my heart to see all of this going on.
Matt pays rent, he works on the base as a cook. My boyfriend's twin brother works at the town's Youth Center, and helps out with bills as well. But living is expensive, and they are experiencing massive amounts of money issues. And to top it all off, I'm about to break the news to them that I've got a baby on the way.
We all know, there is never a good time to break that news.
But now Gary can't even pay for his truck, there was a huge fight that broke out last weekend, and even though he talks the talk he'd never hit anyone because he would just get kicked out.
It's just so stressful. This is a very loud, busy house.
Gary makes me so mad, because he just tore up the front and backyard of a house we're RENTING, to build a new fence even though the first one was just fine, a new deck, and pour tons of concrete! It's just really, really annoying. The whole entire yard looks like crap and to top it all off he just had a brother end up in the hospital and now needs to borrow more money to go to BC for a visit.
it's hard to tell Priscilla because I know how much she is struggling. I don't want her to struggle anymore, but I can't prevent any of the stupidity happening in the house. I'm just the adopted daughter who does schoolwork and holes herself up in the basement. I help out around the house whenever asked, but she really needs a break. I wish I knew a way to just relieve her of all this stress, cause I'm definately feeling the effects.
Ahh, I feel so much better now. Thanks.
