Reshelled my Switch lite tonight. I'm so proud of me. Everything works!

covid, covid denial, std mention 

My uncle who is hiv+ has covid. I’m not surprised but am worried for him. From what I’ve seen he isn’t taking it seriously, seems to be on the ‘it’s the flu’ side of things. He’s also convinced this is his second time getting it when he’s only got tested this time.

worry, pet health, gross subject matter 

Isaac had an accident on the floor tonight and I’m very concerned. It’s very likely nothing bad but I am a bit easily alarmed when the cats may be sick or hurting

food 

First home cooked meal in the new house!! New York strip steak with green beans and mashed potatoes and gravy.

Taking my mom on a trip to the ocean

Then at the end, she had wrote in her will that I had to take half her ashes and ‘do what you want’. That’s we’re I am atm. They’re going to be disbursed into the ocean by way of dropping a water solvable urn out of a plane and letting her hit the ocean at 130 mph. RIP mom. And fuck you.

I’ll always remember introducing her to a friend of mine and her asking to see her wallet. The friend complied and my mom just took all the money from it and walked away. That was my mom. After she’d been diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread to her brain, I visited her in person then to try and make peace but there was never an apology. She acted like it was old times and that she regretted nothing.

I didn’t know what to do or say, I just was shocked without words. She then stole the present he meant to give me and the $50 I’d gotten from my grandma for graduating (the only two presents I got that day). “This is a lesson of how the world works.” She’d said before bolting in a friend’s car leaving me alone. Every time I reached out to her it was the same, lies that she cared followed by a betrayal.

My father was the one who picked me up from jail since my mother didn’t show up. After that our interactions were infrequent and short. Id try to reach out, she’d seem receptive but it was just another scam. Her trying to use me to get money from people. I remember when I graduated high school, the first to do so in our family, she introduced me to a friend of hers and when he was out of the room to get me a graduation present she robbed him.

Lots of bad things happened during that month. I was only like 13 or so. I sometimes wake up at night and can still smell that old urine soaked room. I had to leave and bolted out of the room but got caught. The retaliation for running got the cops called on me by a neighbor. I was being ‘too loud’ when I was screaming for help. I got arrested for disturbing the peace and took to jail for the night.
