I didn’t even stay up that late! However, truth be told after speaking with my cousin on the phone I really was glad that I slept in and didn’t go see him and his family.
I’m fairly certain that’s because my grandmother is what some people would view as rich and my uncle seems to be circling her like a buzzard waiting for the animal to finally stop twitching. My grandmother is no where near death, mind you. She’s probably one of the most healthy people in my family (aside from my hypochondriac uncle who goes to the doctor every time he has a hang nail) but my uncle is looking at the fact that my grandmother has cancer, he has a son that’s a starving artist another trying to go to college and a 3 year old grandson. He’s done nothing with his life and is trying to figure out what he’s going to leave his progeny, hence where him bitching about my grandmother loaning my mother $50 so she can replace the brakes on her wheel chair (ya know, because brakes are something no body needs!).
