Man, feels like time is both moving quickly and slowly. Growing up, I guess? lol
Yesterday my parents were in the area, so we met them over at a casino and had dinner with them. It...wasn't so fun -_- They'd been drinking, and were apparently irritable. My mom pissed off staff after forcing her way through the line to get into a sushi bar so they refused to serve us (honestly I'm surprised they didn't call security on her with how rude she was being...I had to straight-up tell her to stop multiple times, but like hell she listens to me...). I don't know how I can be related to her at times, she's so damn pushy and entitled, at least I don't think I'm like that??? I was content with waiting in the damn line, and, you know, not trying to tell the manager how to run their restaurant and telling him to shut up and let me talk -_- Ugh. Then my mom and dad must have been fighting, because my mom got all pissed off when my dad told her to let him do the talking (you know, so we didn't get kicked out at the restaurant that we had reservations at because she feels the need to micromanage their business), so she walked off and started getting upset so I had to go with her and basically babysit her while she cried about how hard her life is and how she could just die any moment now and how she wants to just go to Florida and be with her deceased twin's family but at the same time how she doesn't want to go because it's sad and she's worried they don't want her there (which I feel like they do? I know if it was me and her twin I wouldn't want her, but I've never been close with her side of the family like my cousins have). Eventually she calmed down after she threw herself a pity party and we had dinner, and it was good until we started getting our main food then my parents started bickering then they kept getting louder so I basically told my dad to stop arguing and drop it (at this point my mom had already gotten into the "clam up" mode...which honestly I was kind of glad for). Had to tell him multiple times to "stop it and let it go". Ugh. I really hate doing that, but he wouldn't drop it and at that point I was tired of babysitting my own parents who were fighting like 6 year old siblings. Thankfully after dinner my dad went with my brother and his girlfriend and went to the casino, and took my mom back to her room. So yeah, that was that. Great seeing everyone...but holy hell being around my family is stressful. Having to constantly apologize for my parents with strangers while getting my parents to behave themselves honestly sucks. I wish they'd at least stop drinking, because that sure as hell doesn't make it any better
Today we were with them as well so now it's only 2 and Kota and I are burnt out. Met with his parents and just...ugh. My mom is being really rude and just doesn't want to listen to ANYONE. So she pissed his dad off. Which is fantastic because he'll dwell on it and complain to everyone else until he gets it out of his system, because that's how venting works for him. Kota wants to take a nap even though we got a solid 9 hours of sleep last night. I'm honestly feeling pretty tired myself after everything and attempting to break things up, even though I was really hoping to go hiking today. Oiye. Maybe we can just do a shorter walk with the dog later instead...
Also tax return season...OH JOY! I finally got all my W2s in (turns out I have 3 of them, 2 from California). I tried doing my tax return with Turbo Tax since they're what I used last year, and they said my return would be $27?!?!? Yeah, I don't think so!! So now I need to figure out what the hell went wrong and get that all sorted out *grumble grumble* Being an adult honestly sucks.
I've been looking into meat rabbit farming a lot lately in my free time. At work I'm covering the front desk and will be until the 22nd because the person who works the front desk is out on vacation. I hate being at the front desk...everyone thinks I know who they are, and I don't, so it makes life hard o-o I try to remember names to faces, I really do! But there's SO MANY PEOPLE, and some of them just look the same to me =/ Smeh. I really want to get into rabbit farming when I can though. I just really want to talk to people who have done it and can give me tips and such! If you or anyone you know has or currently does farm rabbits for meat, hook me up!
I've done chickens for meat, helped my friend butcher ducks and raised ducks as pets, and honestly rabbits just sound better. Only thing is I don't know how how summers get in northern Nevada; some people tell me not hot at all, other people tell me it's like Satan's armpit, so I don't know who to believe O-o; But I wanna farm rabbits. I want to look forward to doing some farming like that. Looking forward to raising my own food (in this case, meat). It brings me joy.
Too much going on to do anything creative lately. I really want to start on some crafting projects, but just don't have the willpower to dig out my craft box and actually start on anything. I don't wanna make messes and just feel like I should be packing up stuff instead since we won't be renewing our lease and only have a couple months left. Yeah, I know, still tons of time, but I just feel like I should be packing. We've been looking at other places to live so it's gotten me in the mindset that I have to prepare to move.
This month is stressful v_v Anyone wanna go to Yosemite with me? Seems like all my friends are both interested in going and not fully interested in the actual going
part (namely getting our shit together to plan on going together and picking a date and making a plan and such). I just want to be able to explore a beautiful area (which Yosemite definitely is!) and get my mind off stuff and be with good people. This is proving to be a stressful month...
