I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of school.
I am so NOT prepared to have the kids home everyday.
A whole summer of breakfast, lunch AND dinner everyday. So help me, God. lol
I made it through last summer. I will again.
AND I should be getting a job here within the next few weeks.
My unemployment will be DONE. I have to get a job. I don't know what to do.
I posted on FB that we were given an air conditioner and an exersaucer.
I have such great friends. My one friend found out that our window A/C broke for the downstairs and her hubby works at Goodwill in the loading dock. (Sidenote: wouldn't it be fun to work at Goodwill and see all the stuff that comes in everyday? lol He gets first pick.) He gets his bonuses on a GW gift card so he grabbed a unit when it came in and bought it for me. I offered to pay them back and they said NO WAY! It works great. It's really huge. We had to use a metal chair to prop it up outside. That's temporary, I have a wood table/stand that will work. Regina and I were giggling last night saying "could we be any more ghetto?" lol
My friend from school/church gave us the exersaucer. It's old, nothing fancy but hey it was free. And it's clean! She has 4 boys, the youngest is 3. She is DONE having kids, she said.
Helen, glad to hear that Eloise is doing well at the psych. Give her a hug from me.
Woo hoo on the medals. :)
Christol, you asked about my friend's son, Andre. I'm not sure what's going on with that. When I was with her that day, he called her cell private. I'll have to call her today to check in.
After you listed the places you applied, I am thinking I might need to step out of the box. Honestly, I really don't want to sit in an office all day/everyday. I've never been a server though. I do have retail experience but it was a long time ago. My friend Carrie (Andre's mom) is a server and she brings home $600 a week sometimes. It wouldn't be too bad during the summer while my kids are home if I worked at night. I was thinking of applying at Rite Aid down the street. It's mostly older women who work there (not teens/students).
Craig's an idiot re; the games. Can you say CLUELESS? lol MEN!
Missi, I'm sorry your mom is giving you trouble about Mariah. It's too bad she can't see what a great thing it is for Mariah to have both sets of grandparents.
Yep, Layla is basically crawling. She was 7 months old on Saturday.
She also pulled herself up in her crib. She is a wild child. lol
Yes, Regina is still breastfeeding her. She's having trouble with sore, cracked, bleeding nipples right now. She has a doctor's appt today for that.
Devin is seeing her every Sunday for about 4-5 hours. Since it's summer, they've decided to up the days. Which is fine with me. He will be going to college in August and that's 2 hours away so he should spend as much time with Layla as he can.
They have not contributed a thing financially since Layla was born. I just recently had to buy a box of diapers. She was still using all of the diapers we received as shower gifts. They don't know that though. We just now ran out of wipes from the shower.
Luckily, I haven't had too much out of pocket yet. I have bought her clothes though. Devin's mom has bought her about 8 outfits her whole life and they were all impractical. The ones she bought for the shower, Layla never even wore.
Then she bought some a couple months ago that were almost too small and were winter clothes. *rolling eyes*
Layla needs a high chair, Regina has asked Devin several times about it.
He threw in her face last night that the baby never stays the night over there. What does that have to do with a high chair?? That's his crazy parents talking.
I told Regina NEVER MIND. Do not ask them for a thing. I will take care of it. I'll find a way. I am keeping track of all of this.
She shouldn't have to ask/beg for stuff. They should be ASKING and OFFERING. They have two adults working over there and Devin's mom makes good money. She just bought Devin a $400 iPod.
Anyway. Whatever. I'll get Miss Layla taken care of. :)
Hope everyone has a nice Monday.
