Today is not going very well at all. A few days ago, my mother's house was broken into. She lives out in Texas now so my brothers and I have to deal with this. That means I will be the one who gets stuck bearing the brunt of things. That's nothing compared to the rest of the drama in my life.
One of my cousins has just been charged with armed robbery. Yeah, that's right. This suburban-raised, product of a stay-at-home mom and a business-owner father with two cars, two dogs, and a cat has managed to get his picture in the newspaper along with a description of what he's wanted for. I had hoped this would avoid being in the paper because by the time he was in custody nothing had been printed but, no, there it was.
This is really overwhelming. I'm taking the weekend off. The world can wait. I'm going to crawl into my bed and I'm not getting out again unless it's to go to the bathroom. See ya' on Monday, folks.
