So, I just wanted to release some stress. Basically my mother in law, as cliché as it sounds, is a nightmare currently. Not because she hates me or anything, but more because of her personality and actions. Hiding secrets for years and then unloading them on Christa and I only a month before the wedding.
Basically every time we try to help her family to get their way to the weddong, there is something wrong with the plan. The most recent problem has just taken us over the edge.
It goes like this...
We want then to go to the wedding.
They are poor.
We offer to pay for their room.
They say they can make it.
They have car problems.
I offered to pay to either fix it up or pay for a bus or a rental car to get them there.
Their car is so bad that it is worthless to put any money into. Also they don't have insurance.
So we offer to pay for a rental car.
They dont have a license.
... they have been fucking driving for YEARS without telling Christa.
She also can't get a license until 2025 because she hit someone and they then got hit with a charge of 4k to pay off the other persons car sue to not having insurance.
Then she goes and tries to get someone to drive then to the wedding. This person is untrustworthy and we know they wouldn't help by driving and staying for four days. Also we didn't even invite them.
So now we have to figure whether they can even come or not. They won't have money to pay for food during they stay anyways. Fucking nightmare.
Portland has a homeless problem. I never really did much besides hand out granola bars to pan handlers and people whom I see are in need. Today I walked by a guy who was trying to sleep in an uncomfortable position, and he didn't have socks.
I decided to go to the dollar store and pick up enough stuff for ten care bags and pick up some backpacks from the thrift store. Backpacks are a huge commodity in need for homeless which allow them to actually keep some of their possessions.
Each bag contains
Couple pairs of socks
Each bag only cost $4.30, and will probably make those people much happier than the $4.30 would bring me.
I hope this inspires others to do more to help their community.

Anyways, I think I'm just a little high. Very literal in the sense of 'little'.
That is because I went to the Trading Post on NP, and then forgot what I was supposed to look up, only 5 seconds later.
