a rough week...

Onto the truck now, it spent 2 days in the shop, took for ever for them to figure out the front brakes needed adjustment. I was a little irritated by that, and then I find that they chugged a quarter of a tank of gas, I can't believe it takes that much fuel test driving it to find out rear axle bearings are toast and front brakes need adjustment (it tugged to the right....). I'm glad it's back now, I finally can get the owners manual and do some reading.
I have a sister too(found out about her last fall), she's younger than me and has different mum, she's not supposed to know about us but her step dad told her and promised not to tell her mum. So she's been sneaking over once and awhile. I haven't had a chance to drive my truck yet since the repairs, and some how she conned the keys out of me and got to drive it. She's a feather foot, but a pretty good driver.
Now we are supposed to be hitting the road for our yearly family reunion on my dads, mums side. every one (only part of the family that gets along) gets together for deer hunting and we spread out across 300 acres. How ever instead of doing laundry tomorrow when I get home and packing my truck and my dads, I'm stuck going for a behind the wheel lesson until 4pm, giving me a couple hours for homework and packing. Than got to go to bed, go to school, and than drive up to the farm Thursday night.
I'm off to bed now, I'm tired.

Keep it together. You sound like you have a good head on your shoulders. We have all had rough times and we are still here yet. I feel you will be on top in the end.

Regarding the infighting, A wise person told me once that the reason we're related to the people we are, is because we'd never associate with most of them if we weren't.
Praying for things to get easier for your family, and wishing you the best of luck.

So far she's comfortable, at least that's what she's telling us. she has some more hand strength compared to yesterday, so what those who are at the hospital are doing is having her squeeze their hands for a response. When I seen her Sunday night, she looked like a dead body in a refrigerator, very white and lifeless. Yesterday she had gained back some color and was able to focus in on things with her eyes, I only got a small tidbit of info today though, I left on a "don't bother talking to me unless you get your __ Together and grow up or she dies" tone. I'm not the only one at that point either, both my mum and and my uncle wont go up there unless both my grandmother and her brother are not there to avoid any fighting and or interaction with hospital security. Hopefully that gives some insight into how childish my family acts with out the stress and drama.
Thanks every one.
Here's some pictures of the truck that I took today.

Sorry to hear about your great grandmother.And as far as your inconsiderate part of the family goes.You can pick your friends not your relitives!
Hope things get better for you. Keep a positive attitude, it does help.

I have not heard anything more, which is bothering me but I'm not going to incite another fight. I'm just waiting for my grandmothers neighbor to let me know when she leaves so I can sneak over there and get some more of my stuff. This will probably my last chance for awhile as she will get in a mood and not let me over.
