Work and BIL
I am on my last night of work on my stretch. I might pick up a day later in the week as we are so busy, but haven't decided. I am ready for a rest though.
My BIL was over today dropping something off for us to store for him. He has gotten kicked out of his 2nd place he was staying. His beard and mustaches is long and dirty looking with his black teeth peeking out. He is truly scary looking. Since he has long ago gone through his money he is probably detoxing since he is sick. Turns out he quit his job as he says it was affecting his health. Hummm. So this is better? This is what end stage alcoholism looks like. You can talk to him until you are blue in the face, but he is in such complete denial and refuses to change his lifestyle even if he is dying. Rick gave him some more money and the first, the very first thing he asked him is, do you want to get a beer?
I was really hoping maybe hitting bottom would be the key. He found a place to live and got a job. But it was short lived. We should be getting the estate money this week so he will be flush for awhile. But he will blow the money I bet before the year is out. If he lives that long. This is the saddest thing.
Well, I have to get supper ready. Have a great day. It is hot and steamy here. Thank goodness for DC.
