Last night I was standing in the kitchen getting everything ready for dinner. The my phone rings. It is Barry. So I answer it and say "Hey you how is that baby of yours?"
Barry just said "mom"
I could tell by his voice that something was very wrong. Oh my gosh did something happen to that baby?
Well it turn's out that his wife beat the shit out of him and then kicked him out of the house. This is not the first time that she has done this.
Now you may be thinking that Barry is a big bad marine and he let a women hit him. If Barry fought back he would have been the one arrested.
So for now Barry is staying in a hotel room. When I talked to him this morning he said that he was thinking about going up to his parents house in Pa.
If this crap had happened here in California, I would have gone down to base and snatched that baby up and then kick the crap out of her. I swear to you.... don't mess with my marines!
Then Amber called me last night and she was just crying her eyes out.
After I got her to calm down, Amber was able to tell me that her teacher suggested that she drop her English class before she fails it.
Amber has been trying so hard and yet she is still failing this class.
Rusty just said "you know some people are not cut out for college" I know this is true.
I feel for Amber. I struggled all the way through school and I had to work my ass off just to get a c. However I am going to do exactly the opposite of what my parents did..... throw me out.
I am going to just encourage Amber to keep taking college classes. I don't care what she takes. I just want Amber to keep learning.
I hope that by encouraging Amber to keep taking classes that she will find a niche and then I know that she willexcel at it.
My shoulders need to be big today. I have Amber and Barry counting on me.
Today I do no have any major chores. I do have to go get dog food and take Nikki to fill out some more applications. I would love to get my dinning room table cleared off, so that I can start another quilt. I saw this real easy pattern in a quilt book, so I thought I would give it a try.
