What lesson is this bringing to me?

The Peach Stand was supposed to open today but as of 1pm there is still no sign of it. I have been promised phone calls with no follow up, and emails with no follow up. I am so frustrated and so close to tears yet again. I have been READY and at the beck and call of these people for days. Steve hasn’t been able to go to work with his brother today which is our only guaranteed money. We have spent gas money we didn’t have to waste, checking on whether they have started the stand. My stomach is in my throat.

Yesterday I had to tell Geoffrey he doesn’t get to take the summer PE class that freed up his school year to allow him to take chorus and French. He was disappointed. The hardest part was having asked my daughter for money and then having to explain that nothing is happening money wise yet. We are still 2 weeks off from any kind of money IF the peach stand comes through. I feel like I’m being torn apart again. I know she didn’t mean a thing by asking about our ‘jobs.’ She called this morning to let me know her pregnancy test was positive. They’ve been trying for over a year and she’s almost 32. She doesn’t need to be supporting her mother’s unit – my words not hers.

FRUSTRATION

Update – I started making noise and rattling chains and finally got some answers about the peach stand. They planned the set-up poorly and it’s still coming. We are being paid from today forward. It may be Friday before it actually starts and I will stop being so upset and give them room since they understand I will report a scam…

And did I tell you I’m gonna have a new grandbaby???? A new grandbaby! I am a grandbaby hog!

About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
