Money don't get everything it's true, What it don't get, I can't use ...

What a crappy morning I have had so far. That's a fabulous way to start a blog entry, eh?

Things are not so good in Fireheart House. Misk has finally lost all patience and directed me to tell my mother she needs to leave, post haste. He's said we will buy her a bus ticket to Maine if we have to. Ok, so I go to tell my mom and...apparently, her boyfriend in Maine has not been keeping in contact with her, and it seems that...well, he's lost interest.

I knew this would happen, I just knew it.....I saw it coming, and I should have acted sooner to get her back there. Damn it all to Miami.....*sigh*Right, back to my story...

After having an in-depth talk with her and explaining that Misk has expressed his desire for her to leave now, that things, as great as I make them out to be, have been strained with us due to the lack of comfort and privacy in our home. She has pronounced, that hell or high water, she will be out in 2 weeks time.

Well, whether she goes to Maine or not, one thing is for sure:

I will not be able to make it to BrittCon, unless a miracle occurs, and I come into some money. We had depended on that lovely little Economic Stimulus check to arrive so I could go to New York, have a blast, and not worry about the finances, but it never did. Misk seems to think it still might, but I am not holding my breath. Just like we though my mom would only be staying with us for a few months (which turned into a YEAR), that's just not how it happened.

I am rather disappointed at the fact that I won't be able to tool around NYC with my Blogging Friends and Idols. And as much as it would be somewhat feasible for me to afford my train tickets and room at the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen & Marine's Club, it would not be as feasible for me to survive in the food department. Unless by food, you mean $1 hot dogs from corner carts. While they are tasty, it would not be healthy or a good idea for 3 days straight. i could also live on fruit from Bodegas and bottle water, but again, probably not such a great idea...

So, that's it....my little sheltered existence has imploded into one big disappointment. Yeah I'm being dramatical about it, but I was so very much looking forward to it.

I am still holding a birthday-sized candle of hope that the stimulus check shows up, but if it doesn't by the 22nd, I am canceling my reservation in NYC.

And, somehow, getting my mother out of this house.

I hope the rest of you are having a better week,

Too bad about BrittCon. If I had money, I'd love to go too. I can NOT imagine living with my mom for a weekend let alone a month or God forbid, a YEAR! I hope everything works out for you.I'll keep my fingers crossed!

yeah, I kinda remember a trip to Chicago that never happened, for much the same reason, too. Good luck with the Mom thing--Moms never change, believe me. And I'm thinking of you, with fingers crossed anyway.

Wow that really sucks about the Stimulus Check. Come to think of it... I haven't seen mine either. It's the government. They suck.

On the bright side... at least you won't have to worry about getting run over by a taxi!!!

Metalmom - it's been a year from hell, I can tell you....thanks for the positive vibes, IT WORKED!

Jgirl - no kidding....mothers can really suck sometimes...

Tobi - mine will be a paper check because we had taxes prepared...NLT June 20th to be mailed...I am not holing my breath though....

NYCWD - I never would get run down by a taxi...I adhere to all NYC cross walking laws....and I also prefer to take the subway!
