so all I could come up with for a title right now involved a queen song or those insects that you "shoo" because I'm kind of feeling a little overwhelmed. neither title would be at all appropriate. so you get "ummm..."

this already rough year just got a little rougher. one very sad thing and one very unfortunate thing happened yesterday.

the unfortunate was that my 18 year old brother's car got broken into last night, during the crazy rain in tulsa. it was parked in our driveway in the brookside area. his window was bashed in and his ipod and his nice cologne were stolen (he keeps the cologne in the car because my mom is allergic. ps she gifted me with that allergy). the ipod, yeah, yeah, it's his fault for leaving it in the car, but at the same time he's 18 so cut him some slack.

AND because of some bizarre Oklahoma insurance law, the ipod and the cologne are covered under my mom's homeowner insurance but the window is under the car insurance--so my mom would have to pay two $500 deductibles to get everything fixed. she can't even afford one of those.

and now, onto the unfortunate: my Granny Ann passed away. This isn't my Granny that I talk about often--my Granny Ann is/was my stepgrandmother. But from when I was 8 until I was 19 or 20. So she was definitely a significant person in my life. My Papaw, her husband, passed away earlier this year. My Granny Ann was in a nursing home, and my mom is light on the details, but apparently something happened, and somehow my Granny Ann was at St John's, and her death is under investigation because it appears that someone gave her a shot of insulin which put her in a coma, and then she died. she was not diabetic, but her Alzheimer's was pretty bad so she likely wasn't in the frame of mind to tell anybody she wasn't diabetic.

and my poor mother just called to tell me. And then we realized that her cousin Steve, my Aunt Mary Ann, our dog Gracie we got 14 years ago, my Aunt & her sister Carolyn and Papaw and Granny Ann have all passed away this year.

That is a long, sad, list people. I think I'll just try not to think about it too hard. but man. please send positive vibes to my fam. :(

i am so sorry to hear that and it makes me quite angry to hear about hospital errors - they seem to be common. it is infuriating. so sorry!
