My 30 year old sister had a baby today.
I found out that she was pregnant two days ago.
Nine months pregnant to be exact.
The worst part…she lives with me.

Now before you go being all judgy, understand that I did ask her many, Many, MANY times and she denied it. To her credit it was really crappy timing. We had just lost our 45 year old brother to cancer 12 days prior on June 26th. We found out that the melanoma had returned for the second time 5 months ago. The first time was 4 1/2 years ago. So when I say it was a really crappy time, I mean that in the worst possible way.

I guess I should also mention that 13 months and twelve days ago my same sister had another baby. She also has a 7 year old daughter that does not live with her but with our parents; our elderly parents. Our parents who are 67 and 69, albeit a young 67 and 69 but still rapidly approaching 70. They also have my youngest sister living at home. She is 25 and has Downs Syndrome and will eventually live with my family. In addition, 6 months ago my father was officially upgraded from dementia to Alzheimers and my mother is partially deaf and is on her 4th hearing aide (she lost the previous 3). Lets face it, they will probably all come live with me.

110 days ago, the the social security disability battle that I had been fighting for 20 months ended with a fully favorable decision, yah! On the 60th day or as I liked to refer to it, the day I finally get a check, or in my case the day things got crappier, the Appeals Council decided to remand my case. Re-open the case or as I like to call it, give you a freakin’ anxiety and heart attack all in one mere moment). This means my lawyer will probably get paid more and lucky me gets to wait an additional 24-36 months for their review. The good news, is that I am entitled to interim benefits on the 110th day following the original fully favorable decision. That should have been today.

But today I did not receive a check, I received a niece that I had no idea was coming until two days ago.

This is just a little bit of what I will be expounding upon in this blog, because as my friends say: You just can’t make this shit up.

I will intersperse my photographs, artwork and crafts in between my rants, because let’s face it, if I didn’t do something else I would have imploded by now. Or maybe spontaneously combust (something which I have always been fascinated with).

Welcome. One thing I can guarantee is that I have enough stuff to talk about to fill at least part of the internet.

Peace – jules
