Damn... what if I can't afford tickets now?
I'm sitting in the hospital right now watching my kid sleep (the one who turns 16 the day FFF kicks off). He had to have his appendix out today. This kid NEVER gets sick, so when he woke me up 3 times before 8:00 a.m., complaining of intense abdominal pain, I knew something was up. Thankfully it's out, he'll be fine & he's sleeping it all off now (my poor little straight edge boy did NOT want that morphine put in his arm). And now, here in the quite, I am left to consider the magnitude of the medical bills that are about to start pouring in. Mentally adding them to the thousands of dollars worth of medical bills I'm already paying off from my own surgery back in March.
Seems like every time I think I'm about to get ahead this year, something new falls in my lap. I budgeted to make double payments on most of my medical bills through August so I could have most of them paid off by the end of Sept or Oct & actually have my budget back to normal again before the end of the year. But now, considering I'm probably about to have even more medical bills to pay, I'm wondering if perhaps I should forgo FFF this year & just be the responsible adult. Of course, I'd still get my boy his ticket for his bday, like I always do, but maybe I'll sit this one out, myself.
Who knows... we'll see what happens. Damn, this responsible adult thing sucks sometimes!
