two choices

Well I found some gray hair this morning. The way I see it is that I have two choices. 1. keep plucking them or 2. get rid of the children. The jury is still out on what I want to do.

I am waiting to hear from George. She has some type of infection and is at the hospital right now.

Rusty found out yesterday that he will not be going to shot show in Vegas. Rusty says that he is happy about that. I however think that he is a little disappointed. After all he won't be able to fondle all the weapons! LOL

I am in such a funk today. I have a ton of stuff that I need to get done, but all I want to do is take a nap. I have ben going non stop all week and I am just so worn out. Oh well, I can sleep when I am dead.

Rusty and I decided to keep Nikki in the same high school that she is in now. So I had to go down to the district office and deal with those people today. I swear in order to work there you must be half dead. I know that the lady that was trying to help me was trying, but man she was about on my last nerve. So I got the transfer taken care of. We will have to pay to bus Nikki to the other high school, but it beats th other option.

The other option would be going to the same school that her so called boyfriend goes to. I am so not in the mood to deal with that drama. The other reason is that Nikki has all of her ap classes picked out and is signed up for them. I will be damned if I am going to let some snot nosed little boy distract Nikki from her dream.

I am about sick of Ambers boyfriend....Sam. Sam is a good kid, but he has been out of work for over two weeks now. Sam said I will not work for min. wage. Oh so you would rather be broke then work for min. wage until something else comes along. Maybe it is just his age? Even Amber is sick of listening to him bitch.

Amber named her sack of flour Hunter. She actually did a really good job of dressing this child. I think it is funny. The last time Amber wanted to take this class I just sent Amber over to baby sit for the triplets. That cured her. But now the triplets live in Iowa.

I talked to Lyn last night and this lady is very quickly becoming a mentor for me. I know Lyn was sent to me. Anyway we both found some more people who are willing to help with the going away party.

I was asked why more people would not help. Maybe it is because they can't see past their nose? Or the thought of doing something nice for someone else never crossed their minds? I do not know why some people are so shallow.

O.K. it is time to get out of my funk and get on with my day. I have to get some sewing done. Cook dinner, clean two more bathrooms.....

I hope you got some rest.

LOL, I found 2 grey hairs in my head also yesterday. And since I love my child, I plucked them out. My hair is very very dark and I didn't want those shining grey suckers ruining that. Hope you have a nice evening.

I'll take the biggie size in the Hippie Meal (winks)...Kudo's to you and Rusty for keeping Nikki in the same school away from problem bf. Unfortunately in Skye's case she went comakaze after she went away to college, not much you can do at that point. With the economy Sam is lucky to even work a min. wage job. Versus the alternative no money....

If we lived closer I would be there in a milli minute to help out with the going away party. Hope George is ok....Keeping her in my prayers on the smoke. (Hugs) Indigo

Kelli; hope you got out of your funk by taking a nap, seems like a perfect plan for me. I'm so glad you have a mentor in Lyn; I think we all need mentors, someone who believes in us and wants to help us get there.

take care of yourself

I have so much to do and am so far behind.  I hate dealing with paperwork like that and beauracratic people seem to not be on the high end of the common sense or IQ level either.  It's good that you have here changed to where she needs to be.  You're a good Mom.  Don't let any boy come in and steal her future.  I wish someone had cared that much about me and then maybe I wouldn't have spent my teenage years being a mother and parenting like, forever.  

Hope you got some hot water for the bath too.  Relax now.

Won't work for min. wage huh?  I guess having ZERO dollars is better than having 5 or 6 an hour?  lol Hope george gets better!

I have read your journal and what you did today and now I am tired and need a rest. Ha.  Compared to you I do hardly any physical work, but I like it that way.  I try to leave my living room the same year after year so I will have more time to read and write and go on the Internet.  This is why most old people never change a stick of furniture in their houses for at least ten years straight.  They can't move it and next they don't want to.

You and Rusty did the right thing for Nikki.  If she got messed up with some boy and had to abandon her dream, she would regret it for the rest of her life.  It's a story I've heard so many times.

So Sam thinks he can start at the top?  This is a problem I heard on Fox News on their Saturday morning financial block, The Cost of Freedom.  One of the people on there said he had spoken to many young people and found many were not willing to work for what their parents and grandparents worked for 50 years to get.  They want the houses, the cars, the clothes, right now.  Well, Sam sounds like he's going to have a hard road in front of him.  We all start at the bottom and work our way to better jobs.  Minimum wage beats no wage at all.

Sorry you don't have more to help with the going away party.  You're right, people these days are very shallow for the most part and self-centered.  It didn't used to be that way.
