Tree Trimming

Going 'home', to Calvin's house after spending the night at the hospital; we were all so pooped. Calvin had a tree trimming job that afternoon. His brother, who usually works for him, wasn't up to it that day. Calvin said, it was really a one man job, he just wanted someone there to make sure he's OK. He didn't know if he was in decent shape to be working, especially with dangerous tools with everything that was going on around him. I offered to go along.

Rest In Peace, Jim!

The night we slept over at the hospital, Maggie, Cal's mom, made more phone calls while from home and established that the uncle who they were going to wait for before turning off the machine, wasn't going to make it that night. He was the only reason Jim was still in ICU and not in the other place! I can't get myself to say it / write it! When I found out that about the uncle, I felt a weird feeling pierce through my body! That meant one thing: that it was time! Time to say good-bye to Jimmy :(

Hospital Sleepover

Towards the end of the gut-wrenching day we had what with Jimmy being on life support; Calvin suggested his mom, Maggie go home. She had been at the hospital since the previous night and Calvin thought that she would be able to get a lot done from the house, like contacting people etc. And the woman needed some sleep!

Life Support

Calvin offered to haul my furniture with his truck. Thanks Boo! This is the first time in my entire life I have ever had help moving, and you know I'm always moving some place! Not only that, but to have my man help me was such a cherry on top! Calvin was only going to be available to move me at a weekend. That meant, I only had one of two weekends to do so! I must say, it was also nice to move out knowing where I was moving to because, if you've been following my story, I hardly ever know where I was going to live next.

Window Shopping

It was getting closer to time to move out! Management arranged for someone to do inspection in my apartment. I wasn't very worried because I took very good care of the place. I even would wipe the walls every now and then etc. My main concern was the broken window.

Moving On Up!

The rest of February came and went, no check from my boss of one day! I had still been in constant communication with him. I could have let it go but not after the hell I had gone through in that job after they didn't even warn me about the real problem I was going to be dealing with!
