Remember this? Well, she left her husband and moved to Ut.ah with her kids and my brother in tow about a year ago. If my math is right, about a month later, my brother moved back home, only to turn around and move back to her place shortly after. I swore he wouldn't make it the first winter. No way, not in Ut.ah. We may be from TenISee, but the winters aren't nearly that cold. But, he did.
My brother called me a few weeks ago to tell me him and G had been having trouble and he wasn't sure what to do. I told him to leave her and move out here. G has too much baggage. She's technically still married. She has two young kids. She spends all of my brother's money. She leaves her kids with my brother so that she can go get drunk with her sister at bars/clubs. She's no good for him.
He recently lost his job. He's sleeping on the couch because they are separated, but he doesn't know anyone over there so he's stuck. I told him a few weeks ago he should move out here. He said he would think about it. He called me over the weekend to ask me if we were serious about him coming to live here. I told him to get in the car and come on down. He said he was seriously thinking about it. He told me he had just spent four days in room, getting drunk, and he hadn't showered that long either. I told him it was time to make a change. He agreed.
He'll be selling one of his cars (it's a POS, but worth a few hundred bucks) and getting his things together this week. Sometime towards the end of the week, he will start driving from Ut.ah to TN. He'll stay there a few days to visit our family and then he will move down here. Once he gets down here he will start looking for a job. We've also been discussing getting him into school as well. Unlike my sister, my brother is capable of working and going to school. He won't need hand-in-hand instructions about life. He'll probably even get his own place next summer or fall once he's situated.
And by the way, my brother moving here means my office is going to have to be moved into the bedroom since we only have three bedrooms. Luckily, our master bedroom is big enough for most of the things I have. Now, we just need to find a twin or full size bed for my brother and we'll be officially ready. I have to say, I'm actually looking forward to being with my brother again. We get along pretty good, much better than my sister and I for sure. K and A are excited, too. NYEBoy is just nervous about my stress level. He does want my brother to get his life on track though.
So, are we insane? Nah, we're fucking crazy. I told NYEBoy, look on the bright side, I'll have even more to blog about, even if I have less time to blog. Ha. On another bright side, my brother has plenty of practice babysitting! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT SHIT MEANS? A-B-R-E-A-K! *gasp*
