Today... Is Not A Good DayToday I found out my adopted grandfather passed away. He's been there for me for almost 20 years. I was at work when my mom called. I ignored it of course, because I was at work. I spent all day oblivious to the fact and then I get home and call my mom. I was expecting to hear her complain about here day as always, but no. Not this time. I've gone to funerals as a courtesy. To show families of friends and loved ones that I'm there for them. But is this really how it feels when the tables are turned? He passed away last Wednesday (3 days before my 22nd birthday) but his kids claim that they couldn't get in touch with any of us. He was cremated and put to rest without any of us knowing. I didn't even get to say goodbye. They didn't even have the decency to let us know.
Tomorrow I work a 12-hour shift. I've already called my boss and my best friend up crying on the phone and now I just feel stupid. I'm still going to work tomorrow. They told me to go back home for and be with my family, but I'd be paying to go to a house full of sadness and tears. So I can't go and I don't want to stay home either. So I'm hoping work will take my mind off of things. Well, as long as everyone doesn't stare at me.
Today... Is an Awful Day.
