OOOOHHHHh Amber, Rusty and Ryan are on my last nerve.
Lets start with Ryan since his is short. I was doing all of his laundry and I noticed only two pairs of underwear in the wash. I TRIED to find out what happened to all of his underwear, but I got the usual blank stare. I finally asked him if he threw them away. Once again I got the blank stare. The stare of I am in here but I have no idea what you are saying. I did catch him throwing his clothes away last week. I went outside and said what are you doing? He had confused put away your clothes with throw your clothes away! So now I have to go replace all of his underwear. I swear to you on all that is holly that if throws them away again he will be free balling it.
Now lets move on to Amber. I sold my antique sewing machine yesterday and gave Amber the money so that she could buy her grad night ticket. Yes you read this right, I sold my prize sewing machine for my child. I came up $10 short and all she said to me when I gave her the money was "cool". My heart broke.
Then Amber starts looking at college out of state. I asked her why. Amber said "Well you are the one that said I could go"
I told Amber that before she started looking at colleges in Alaska and by her Grandmother that she needed to get a lot of stuff in order. Little things like saving money to buy a car when she gets there, paying her own car insurance, putting gas in her car, figuring out if these people are going to charge her rent, how she is going to get a phone on her own....with no credit and then she needed to figure out if Rusty's disability benefits will cover her if she goes out of state. Oh lets not forget little things like health insurence.
That was when Amber lost it. Did she honestly think that WE were going to continue to pay for all of these things?
Then I asked her why she wanted to go to my moms house. After all my mom has put her out before. Remember that my mom did not even spend 24 hours with you before picking up hell child. You about lost it over that. What do you think is going to happen if you live there. Do you think that your grandmother is actually going to love you more? Hell no. You will just be a built in baby sitter!
Amber did not want to hear this. I guess reality sucks. HMMM welcome to my world.
Maybe I was wrong to be so blunt with her but there it is. Amber got mad and called Rusty.
Rusty is mad at me for selling my sewing machine. Well I either gave her the money now, or took it out of his check. Either way the money needed to be paid.
Yesterday I did get part of the garage cleaned up and got all of the laundry done. Over the weekend someone was nice enough to throw the clothes from the dryer on the floor, so the got soaked, and I had to re wash them. Oh the joys of my life.
Today I have to go to the bank and get some money out. I need to go get nikki something to eat since she has an away match tonight. Oh did I mention that Nikki made Varsity? Then I have to go buy Ryan his underwear. The bank does not open until 10 and I have to be home by noon because Ryan gets out of school early today.
It is cold here and I do not care about the gas bill. I am turning the furnance on.
Who says that a house rats life is dull. The excitement never ends here.
