Well a lot has happened this summer. I finally quit the church i was going too. It's a long story. The church has a christian school to help pay its bills. My mom was an aide for the school. The teacher that my mom was an aide for had a baby and has to leave the last month of the school year. The principle promised my mom a raise. So my mom's pay check came and never received a pay raise. She asked the principle about it, the principle then said she would take care of it. Well the raise never came. The teacher that was on leave was also told that she would get paid for the last month she was gone. Well that never happened either. Well a meeting was set up to discuss what was going on with the pay. The church personal committee and the school board was present. Both women explain what was told to them and the school board said they never told the teacher that left that she would be paid. The principle told the school board and the church personal committee that she did tell my mom she was going to get a raise. Well they denied my mom and the teacher their money. I was ticked off, during the meeting there was a lot of lying..This is a church, if I wanted to be lied on I sure the heck wouldnt go to church! Anyway, it gets worse...A lady that voted to deny my mom her raise started to stalk her and myself. She would call my mom stop leaving stupid messages about she is trying to help my mom..She left 10 messages saying she is trying to help. Then she starts acting like she is my moms friend and starts leaving her messages about wanting to invite her to craft fairs...etc..This woman has never called my mom before!!! Until now! Anyway, the next thing I knew she starts parking in our drive way, coming to knock on the door for 10 mins at a time and then she tries to let herself into the house. Thank God I locked the door. When she figures she cant open the door she goes back to her car and sits in our drive way! I should have called the police..I have no idea why I didnt! Well the youth pastor gets involved next..I decided to talk to him to see whats up with all this madness! I answer, I answer his questions and then he ask "well, will ya'll be coming back to the church?" I answer more then likely no..He then gets all mad, starts yelling at me and hangs up..The next day he sends me a facebook message trying to be my friend. I send him a message back saying leave us alone...So he does...A few weeks ago he called my mom wanting her to come back to the school (they cant train anyone new because they have no idea what to do to train someone). My mom tells them if she gets a raise. They call back a few days later and give her a $500 a month raise. The lady that was stalking us is no longer a part of the church...
Well, my brother called last night to inform us that he has a mass in his stomach thats wrapped around his aorta. He has had some test done but he wont get the results until next week. The doctor believes there is a big chance it isnt cancer but if it is, the type of cancer that it will be can be treated with radiation. It's bad news that he has the mass but its great news that it can be treated!
