“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” —Alexander Fraser Tytler
We just had a round of the stomach bug hit us. Holy wow! I still really can’t eat much :( my stomach is so messed up! Abbi is doing much better, I got Friday morning, and Seth got it late last night and still pretty yucky. Yeah, so this has been fun!!! Not
My sister and her ex are really getting back together. Like he’s leaving his fiancé for my sister. Wow. Just…wow.
Since my own breakdown on Sunday (doing better!), it seems that crazy things keep happening to people around me. Here is a short list…
-One of my aunts went into rehab for alcohol abuse (her husband also recently filed for divorce).
-Sister getting back together with her ex-husband, who is engaged.
-Friend and her family are in protective custody after her husband tried to kill her with a shot gun while getting her kids ready for school (we’re still waiting to hear about the trial).
-Ex-boyfriend from Australia made contact to make sure I was ok.
-Someone I know, who is 16 yr old, has a 30 yr old stalker. Family, friends, and police can’t find the guy. He’s still harassing her through text messages and e-mail.
-Best friend is dealing with family, personal, and emotional issues as well. Too crazy of a story to get into on here.
ALL happened since SUNDAY!!!! (or I found out about it during/after Sunday). I apologize if I seem distant, off planet, or delay in communication with anyone. I’m just trying to survive everything and someone come out a better, stronger person. We’ll see how this goes.
