WARNING: This is a complete venting post, so if you don't want to read something pessimistic, stop. At least I warned you. It's also not likely to make sense, but that's where I am right now.
My grandpa is dying. He'll most likely pass away in the next few days, seeing as from what I understand, he's not eating or drinking anything anymore. My family, minus myself and my brother, are driving to NJ to say a final goodbye to my grandpa on Friday, if they can make it there before he dies. Due to work and babysitting commitments, the fact that I've seen him more recently than most of my family members, and especially that it's not really him anymore I have opted not to drive with them. Once he passes away and funeral arrangements are made, I will go there for a few days- but this means I'll have to drive alone.
I don't mind driving alone, usually. But it's a solid ten hour drive from here, and being that when I'm making the drive I probably won't be in ideal driving conditions, plus if it snows...well let's just say I already wasn't looking forward to it.
And then on the way home from a bar tonight, I was driving with my friend Lyn and all the sudden the car made a not-so-good noise. I'm thinking/guessing it's muffler related but of course, I know nothing about cars so I could be completely wrong. I'll bring it by the shop in the morning...if I need her to, Lyn can bring me to work. Of course, I won't be able to pay the car place the way I normally would (debit card, that is) because my number was stolen and yada yada yada, so the only way for me to get money is to drive to an actual bank when it's open to get cash...if I end up driving to NJ, I really, really don't want to have to carry that much cash for gas and food, but if my debit card doesn't work and since I'm in this Dave Ramsey thing, I certainly can't, and don't want to use a credit card...
I know this is a mish-mash of words. I know it is. I'm so, so at the end of my rope right now though and my co-teacher Jessa will, guess what, be out AGAIN tomorrow and I seriously cannot handle anything else right now. It's pessimism week over here. Sorry.
