Generally I would delete your comment and move on, you know, just because you are not worth talking to. However IF you had read that post you would have seen that when we do these "exclusive" events as you call them they are either with Make-A-Wish or Hope Kids, which are two organizations that provide fun events not just for our child who has a life threatening illness, but for ALL of our children.
In this case it was Hope Kids that we went with.
Hint: The matching black shirts that all my kids are wearing that say Got Hope, and Hope Kids, ya we didn't just have those made up for fun.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you would realize that many celebrities love to do things for charitable organizations. Whether it be for publicity or just because they are genuinely good people who care about what families like ours goes through.
Now I didn't just go to these organiziations and say, hey!! My kid is sick I want to be part of you guys. They actually have forms that are filled out by Rhett's doctors stating that he does indeed have a life threatening illness.
That's the only reason we are able to do these things, and my dammit my kids deserve it.
Also, just thought I might want to warn you that come Tuesday there's going to be alot of Taylor Swift concert pictures and alot of talk, because we got some awesome seats to her concert.
You should also be warned that Chloee sung her heart out for those tickets, and her posing with David Osmond is because he was one of the judges of that contest. It wasn't an "exclusive event" either. The whole public was invitedm and it was all free.
Did you need me to mail you our medical bills and Andy's 500 dollar check that he just got for working 2 weeks, along with our rent, and our utilities, not to mention food, and gas too?
I sure would like to see how you can magically stretch that money to pay for everything.
And, um it's been a while since we claimed poverty in fact not until today have I been upset at our low income when Andy's check from the dealership was pretty damn close to nil.
In fact I do believe that I was upset that we lost our insurance for Rhett because Andy made too much, and that Rhett's medical supplies were so expensive.
Ya, I bitched and moaned, and picked myself up and dealt with it.
Just like we will now.
At least with this small check we should get medicaid. See, I do see the bright side of things my dear anonymous friend.
I'm not dealing with anything that a billion other parents who have children with special needs are. But, I will continue to be apart of these amazing organizations who have come together to provide some amazing activities for our family to help us deal with all the crap in our lives.
And dammit, I won't let people like you make me feel guilty for having fun with my kids.
We aren't going on big extravagant vacations, and we aren't living in a beautiful luxury home and own lots of toys and expensive cars.
If I ever have or do any of that stuff, and claim poverty, by all means slam me, because then I need it.
I love that you call me a liar, because everything that has come out of my mouth is the truth. I don't lie.
Oooh...Looky here, how did this get on my blog?
Would that be back up to the fact that we really have lost our home?
Oh no, now what's this?
Oh my goodness it's just one of the many letters stating that Rhett no longer has coverage, and we have to pay the rent on his oxygen concentrator.
That's just the letter for the concentrator...that doesn't account for all of his other medical supplies we had to pay for the last two months.
Sheesh, when you take into account all of that, even if you are making good money, once the medical supplies are paid for, which do come first before any other bills, then that doesn't leave much leeway for food, rent, utilities and gas.
So I'm just sayin, before you get all high and mighty hiding behind your sweet little computer, try getting your facts straight.
I know alot of people who are out there begging for money and have stuff all over their blogs saying how bad they need money, yet have beautiful homes expensive cars, and get a salary every month, where as our pay is based on commission and we never know how it will be from month to month.
Yes, and before you go off on Andy getting a new job, he is working on it. The auto industry is going downhill fast, and it's time to get out.
However on the other hand we are so thankful that he has had a job that he has actually been able to do since he had his back surgery. All though selling cars is high stress in other areas, it did provide him with some income while he was giving his back time to heal and strengthen.
We have sold everything we own. All we have is the nessicties that we need. We have zero debt. Not one credit card, no car payments, nothing.
We just try to survive, and our lives are so much better than when we had all the toys. We are better because we realzie that we just need each other.
