On my list of must do's today is cleaning our bathroom. This has become such a time consuming chore that I dread doing it. I love my garden tub but it is so hard to clean. I hate cleaning the shower because I can never get all the hard water spots off the shower doors. Oh well so goes my life.
So the last time we moved I got rid of Ryans bed. It was old and nasty and I thought this would be a good time to get him a new one.
So before the marines left one of them asked me if I wanted a new full size bed. At first I said no, but then Amber said that she wanted it. So I took it.
Now I had to find a frame for it. Amber has been bugging me for weeks to go buy her a frame. I kept on telling her to wait. I had been asking everyone I knew if they had a frame. Finally Lyn said that they had one and that I could have it! Score!
So yesterday we gave Ryan, Ambers old bed.... it was only a year old. Then I helped Amber set up her bed. I know I saved so much money by just waiting for the right time.
Yesterday I explained to Amber that sometimes you have to wait and talk to people. I went on to explain that Lyn had the frame and that she was so happy to get it out of her storage shed. I think a light bulb went on in Ambers head.
Yesterday Nikki got her first sponsor check and she was so happy! It really gave Nikki a boost!
Two of the marines call me yesterday. Between the two marines that I spoke with they have seen everyone that we know. I am happy to report that they are all doing well.
I got a notice from the county that our child support records are now on line. So I logged in and took a look. Then I got out my handy dandy calculator and did some figuring. Can you believe that I am only getting $37.50 a week per child, and that does not include any of his back payments? I contacted the DA's office and I am waiting to hear back from them. I am going to ask that sperm donor continue to pay child support on Amber and carry medical as long as she is in college. I am also going to ask that the children get a raise to a whole $60 a week. I do not know if I will get it, but it is worth a shot.
All of the marines that were going to come down and help us do demo can't. So now I am scrambling trying to find some marines. Yesterday I called the base Sgt.Major and he is also going to put the word out that we need marines for demo. I just know that the marines will not let us down.
Well I need to get to cleaning, and then I can finish my list of a million other things that need to be done.
