My sister and my cousin saved my ass money-wise yet again.
I feel bad for taking money from them, but at the same time, it makes me feel loved that they’re willing to help me.
(disclaimer: I’m not asking them for money to feel loved, that’s not what I’m saying)
My cousin is also giving me a ride to the family gathering in the beginning of next month, and I’m super psyched.
Once every 18 months, my dad’s side of the family (25-30 people) rent a location and have a 3-4 day long gathering. We have our own song that we sing, we have activities planned each day, but there’s also lots of time to just relax and spend time with each other.
We share the costs for the rent and the food, and on the last day, we “auction” the remaining food. The more well-doing family members seem to have an unspoken rule that they let those of us with little money have a go first, since the food is cheaper at the auction than in the stores.
I’m really looking forward to it, because I don’t get to see most of my family very often. I’m sure it’ll be a little draining, but I’ll bring extra meds. Shouldn’t be a problem.
