There were a couple of things that I forgot to mention that I don't feel like adding to the previous post so bear with me. I babysat for my mom's friends and I am hoping that it happens more often. One of their parents is the one that writes the funny blog that I mentioned a while back. There are two boys: Griffyn and Finn and a girl: Winter (though she doesn't really need babysitting since she's 13). They are awesome. Griffyn is the youngest and he's hilarious. He has such a wild imagination and everything that comes out of his mouth will make you laugh. I love them all, they're great. They can get a bit rowdy at times but they are truly good kids. I enjoy spending time with them. I helped keep an eye on them today because they just recently moved into a new house and their water pump isn't working properly. My mom, stepdad, Brandon, and I were over there practically all day. Julian was actually trying to help them fix it along with a few other people. When I babysat them last month, I was taking off Griff's t-shirt so he could play with the hose and he says, "I love you.... I don't know why I said that." So cute. When I finally got them inside, I was towel drying him and he was completely naked and he goes, "can I hug you? .... Not yet?" Hahaha, though he hugged me anyway. Extra money coming in isn't half bad either. I need to find a new job. Working for my stepdad just isn't cutting it anymore. I have too many bills and I'd like to start saving to get myself out of this house someday. I'm not going to do that only working two days a week... I need to write a résumé though. Ugh.
A very close friend of the family of ours died the other day. Julian's best friend. He's been sick a long time and was told 15 years ago that he had 5 years to live. It's great that he got all that extra time but it still sucks. It doesn't really feel real. We haven't really seen him for a while. The only times I saw him was when he'd stop by the shop to say hi to Julian and he'd pop in the office to say hi to me. Crazy. My mom, Julian, and another family friend went and visited him last week at hospice and they got to say that they loved him and he got to say it back to him. Which is great. I'm glad that they got that opportunity before he couldn't speak at all. Ugh. Just makes me think of last year visiting my aunt in hospice and her dying. Though Andy went a lot quicker than my aunt did. I wish she didn't have to suffer that way for so long. The visits were nice but she was so aware of how useless her body was that it was painful to witness. Losing people is so shitty.
