You know how I was overwhelmed yesterday? Well N slept the afternoon, I left Skyler with C, and I was in the middle of getting my school work done when my mom called me. She says she just got a letter in the mail from the land titles office and my dad is staking a claim on the house. (Which is entirely in my mom's name. They were never technically married, they were common law. She put the down payment on the house before the two of them were together.) So now he is trying to fight her for the house. She called me, frantic, not knowing what to do. Telling me that her and my brother are going to be homeless etc. I told her to call a lawyer. She wants me to tell my dad to come and get the rest of his stuff. I have to be the one in between, because my mom doesn't want to talk to my dad and viceversa and my brother hates my dad and obviously they're not on speaking terms since the whole incident where my brother tried to kill my dad because he said he was moving out.
Oooh C just put on 21 Jumpstreet.. What was I saying?? Right, family blows. So I get off the phone with her and try to go back to my school work but now I can't concentrate on anything at all. So today I still have homework to do before my class tonight because I couldn't get back into the right mindset to finish it yesterday. Haha so much for being overwhelmed. I'm not even worried about our bills now. I'm more worried about my entire family being at war with each other. As much as I'd love to distance myself (remove myself in fact) from the whole situation I can't. Unfortunately I want my parents to be a part of my son's life, and that means talking to them. And talking to them means hearing about it. And hearing about it means being involved in it. *sigh*
So after work yesterday I took a nice long nap. I was exhausted and drained. And then at night Skyler decided he couldn't sleep so, I literally got about 5 minutes of sleep last night. It's a good thing I took that nap. I had wanted to go to the gym this morning, but I'm too tired to do much of anything now. I'd like to go back to sleep but I have to go to work in a couple of hours and I still have homework to do, and then I have class. I had intended to write a post about Skyler, but I think it will have to wait until I get some time.. I hope you all are faring better than I am at the moment.
As I keep telling myself: This too shall pass.
