Since June, the world’s gone crazy.
The youngest got his butt kicked out. He’s living with his grandparents for now, but without any forward momentum.
Kit went to Texas for a week to see his uncle, who is only 10 years his senior and dying of cancer.
We tried to apply for disability for Kit. Denied (not unexpected; still frustrating).
We tried to buy a house, because we can’t stay where we are. Loan denied, because OMD WEIRD ZONING and OMD what do you mean you’re buying a 1 bedroom, 1 bath because we can’t sell that back when you’re done with the house? (We’ll be done with the house when we’re DEAD, just stick a gravestone on it for fuck’s sake.)
We had two shows go by, have another in a week, another in October, and maybe another in November. MUST MAKE ALL THE THINGS.
We are now renting said house, and moving in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS.
It is also currently Ganeshotsav, for which I was not at all prepared, so I threw up my hands, said “Fuck the non-meat tradition for the second year in a row,” and decided to do devotionals on Facebook instead because THE WORLD IS FALLING AROUND MY DAMN HEAD.
Geebas. Fucktards. Spin me right round.
On the flip side, though, the youngest’s older brothers have taken it upon themselves to put some fire under him (may help, may not, but is mildly amusing to watch, knowing our boys). Sir got some good time in with me while Kit was in Texas. Kit got a call from his former boss, which may end up with job-type stuff, which would add a little money to the pot and give him a better barometer of whether his body will withstand a workday. The Realtor we worked with owns the house we’re renting, and is happy to have us and infinitely patient. One show was delightful; the other was AMAZING, and the others promise to also be fabulous. And Cousin Ganesha is not complaining – indeed, He’s been ever so graciously rerouting all the slammed doors into other opportunities. Sir also made damn sure I knew that He is proud of me, because the Kahina Stones are truly done and ready – I’ve sold three sets this year (two commission, one cold).
And our friends. OUR FRIENDS. They have been the best of late.
So the world will stop spinning at some point; I will breathe; W/we will settle.
