Yesterday went good. I finally got Nikki's quilt done, but not with out some complications. I so measured wrong, so I had to cut and patch to make it fit, but it is done. I will have to wait until she spends the night at a friends house to do all of the detail work on it.
Buddha, the sick kitten, is hanging in there. She has ben eating her high calorie food and sleeping. Rusty was just happy to see her eating and at least walking again. I just know that she is going to pull through this.
Yesterday Rusty started throwing up at work. I think he just has a bug since he is not running a fever or anything. So while Rusty was laying down Buddha jump up on his chest and went to sleep. Rusty just cuddled her and kept her warm. rusty said that he could not stand to see an animal in distress.
Amber asked Rusty to help her find some stuff on the Internet, so he got up to help her. About an hour later I come out of the bedroom and I interrupted their conversation. So I left.
It turns out that they were talking about college and why I would not allow Rusty to adopt them. Rusty told Amber that he would have to talk to me about that. Rusty knows the answer but did not want to tell her.
So I am waiting for Amber to ask me. The reason is actually very simple. If Rusty adopted the girls then my ex would be off the hook for child support and I will be damned if I am going to let him get off that easy. Once Amber turns 18 she can go have her name changed. Hell I will even pay for it. Oh do not get me wrong. I do not get any child support but his bill keeps mounting!
Yesterday I noticed that the water heater was leaking. Great that is just what we need. We have fixed and patched our water heater for two years now. I just hope that we can fix it again. The again spraying fabreeze on turd still makes it a turd. So patching the water heater will still mean it is going to go eventually. I so want one of those tankless water heaters.
Why does everything involve money? I told Nikki that she will not be going to Costa Rica. The bonus check that we were waiting on still has not come in, so there is no extra money. I am going to try to find a business that might sponsor her for this trip, but if that fails then she will not be going. Nikki said that was fine with her. She is going to start saving for her mission trips for next year.
Well life is calling so I better get busy.
