Amber hit a huge learning curve yesterday.
Yesterday as Amber was pulling out of the driveway she hit another car. Minor damage to both car's, but enough damage to warrant repairs.
Instead of filing a claim with our insurance company, Amber wants to pay for it out of her own pocket, and keep here driving record cleaning. The cost for repairs to the other car.....$800!
Amber has $400 of it.
So I thought about this long and hard and then talked it over with Rusty. Here is what we are going to do.
We will loan Amber the other $400 on these terms.
1. She must repay us $80 a week until the balance is paid off.
2. She will drive no where except to school and work.
3. Once we are paid off she will have to pay to get her car fixed.
4. If she fail's to do any part of this agreement then we drop her from our insurance and she will have nothing to drive.
Amber came back with the argument that she needs to pay her cell phone bill.
I very calmly told her that I do not care if her cell phone gets turned off. I do not care if you have to pan handle for gas money. I do not care. Break the agreement and you will no longer drive.
Rusty is not happy with this, but he has agreed that it is fair.
As for Nikki. Oh this child! Nikki has been asking me for about a year now to home school her again.
Rusty and I found this charter school that we really like and it is a home based school.
I have no desire to home school again. So this charter school has teachers and Nikki would not have to answer to me.
So, I was going to tell Nikki and that Rusty and I agreed to let her do her schooling through them.
Then Nikki came home and was all pissy with me, and would not listen to a thing I had to say. So I never got a chance to tell her this good new's.
Maybe she will be in a better mood today?
There are a few conditions with Nikki going to this school.
1. Nikki must get on line and fill out all of the paper work to do the transfer.
2. Nikki will have to get a job and work enough hour's to pay her own phone bill.
I have no idea what Nikki is going to say. I guess we will see when she gets home from school..... if she is talking to me.
Berry is flying out tonight to go home! I am so excited for him. He will make it back in time to see his baby born.
Yesterday I went and bought a ton of fleece. So, I spent most of the cutting and I am almost ready to to start dividing up the quilts to get tied.
I think we are going to come up short of my goal of 50 quilts. We will see. I am just going to keep moving forward and take it one quilt at a time.
While I was at Joann's yesterday I found some really great fleece that I want to buy for Nikki. I can't believe that the fleece is $14.95 a yard! I am just glad that I coupon for 40% off on cut.
Today is a new day and I have some running around to do. So I better get moving.
