I was trying so hard to get arrested on Friday! I guess I should back up to Thursday and tell everyone why I was trying to get arrested.
Thursday. The local animal shelter is just a disgrace. So I was not shocked when the small dog part of the shelter caught on fire. However I horrified to find out that the employees did not even try to help the animals.
The total loss was about 20 dogs and 15 exotic cats! All of them burned alive.
Soon after everyone found out my phone started ringing of the hook. A bunch of local rescue group ended up getting together and we went down to the shelter to start pulling the animals. Then we all stood outside the shelter and started stopping people from placing their animals in the shelter.
I was really hoping to get arrested on national t.v. while I was taking peoples pets before they could turn them into the shelter.
Saturday I went to help with Nikkis yard sale, so that the children could raise money for the mission trip. For it being such a crappy day the children did very well. Nikki has raised enough money for her deposit. Now Nikki just has to pass out her sponsorship letters.
Someone donated a ton of Halloween make up. So Nikki and her friend were sent to sort through it and pull out what they could use for the mission trips. This will come in so handy when they dress up like clowns or do face painting.
I was asked if I would bring the make up home and sort it all out for the children. So yesterday I spent about two hours opening up make up and putting together little kits. It really was not that hard it was just time consuming. I will be doing a few more of these kit over the next few weeks. At least I can do it while I am watching t.v. or something.
Amber had a little taste of success this weekend. Out property manager offered me $100 if I would pull the toilet and replace the wax ring..... the toilet was leaking. Anyway, I took the $100 anyone can pull a toilet. It is so easy. Instead of me pulling it I told Amber that if she did it I would give her the $100. So one of the marines walked her through pulling a toilet. Amber was so proud of herself! I am proud of Amber.
Amber is my child that so wants to try new things but is so scared of failing that she will shy away.
Amber wants to go work at this summer camp. So last night we were talking about it and Amber said "well am has not gotten me the information yet". That right there sent me into a tail spin.
I very calmly said "Amber the last thing you need is to be waiting on guy to help you do something. Don't depend on someone that has let you down in the past." So Amber and I got on the Internet and we found some phone numbers and today she will need to make some phone calls.
George an I had a big falling out this weekend. The strange thing is we did not say a word to each other. George had volunteered to help me fill 6 Easter baskets and she said that she would help sort the make up. She did neither. Then George goes out and buys a bunch of stuff to make a baby quilt, and she said "I just know that you can make a cute baby blanket out off all of this stuff. The gal is having a little boy." Then George tells me that she is talking to another guy, so when George's boyfriend asked me about it I told him the truth.
George also asked me if I was getting paid to make up all of these kits. I told her no, that I am doing it because Deb asked me to do it, and it will benefit my child as well as the rest of the mission team. George was silent.
I asked Rusty about all of this. Rusty said that I need to remember that George is only 20. I don't feel that is an excuse. If you give your word then you should follow through. I won't lie for anyone, and she knows that. Rusty also said that maybe George never had friends that would do stuff for her just by her asking.
I guess the part that hurts is that I took her word, but I now know that her word means nothing. That is a shame.
Oh my head hurts.
Well, I have a lot to get done today. I was so busy most of the weekend, so I have a lot of catching up to do.
