Q is calling his sister to see if she's ok with him bringing me home for Christmas. If she says she isn't, he has to decide if he's going without me or not, and how he'll deal with it. Ugh.
Edited to add: COP OUT! She says that since it's their parents house, he has to get permission from his mother. HA! Like that'll happen. She refused to answer him when he asked her for her own opinion. She says that his priorities "aren't the family's" and that if she lets him come with me without their mother's permission it looks like she's taking sides against their mother.
He's not sure what he's going to do next. He's pretty mad. Argh. So frustrating. I'm so glad my family's not like this.
OK, so been very bad about keeping up, both with my own journal and everyone else's. If something major happened recently that I need to know about, comment now. PLZKTHNX.
We had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Wednesday it snowed, but didn't stop us from heading to Waldorf for his comics and to meet with his uncle to talk houses. Thursday we went to his uncle's again for dinner - many people, lots of food, and I was the only white boy in the house. Friday we drove up to my mom's and stayed there, then Saturday we went up to my sister's for another turkey dinner. I did a bunch of stuff around the house for my mom over the weekend, and then Sunday we took her out shopping at Concord Mall where she bought body glitter - go Mom! Monday and Tuesday night were spent sewing patches on Q's uniforms for his inspection this morning. I felt like a Boy Scout.
No job yet, but submitted the appeal for unemployment, which I really doubt they'll grant, so I keep looking. I will likely settle for something retail for the time being, which will suck but I will live until something better comes along. Tonight we're heading up to Waldorf again and we'll stop by his uncle's to talk to him about the status of the mortgage and when we can start looking at places. Q still has to decide what he wants to do about Christmas, which is another whole mess there, but we're still deliriously happy together, so it's all for the best. :)
