My hours at work were cut by a corporate rule, in order to achieve an impossible productivity level.
My teenage son has been caught drinking three times in the last few months, My daughter Becky's 16 year old boyfriend, “Super Fly” I call him, got arrested for attempted homicide two days before her graduation.
Two weeks ago, after returning home from the hour drive to pick up the sons for a visit at Nana and Boppas I get a call from my husband. Super fly wanted to know if he could marry our daughter. My husband asked him what he had to offer
A few days later and the ring came, probably from a pawn shop. So was that enough. No, my cell phone accidentally went through the washer. I got a new one and the next day the dog chewed it up.
I got another one and this time I have text messaging. Which my family says I have to learn. What a wast of time. It is much easier, quicker and more personal to talk.
Our camera died too, and we got a new one that no one has been able to install so we can download. Two days ago my husband says it is the computer and decides to “clean it up.” So I got up yesterday to no email, no writing program and still no pictures.
And to top it off, today Becky moved into the dorm! Super fly came along and didn't do much except confuse her and give her a hard time about other guys. He is like a leech trying to suck out her life. He's on a tether and she drives him and his family every where, they don't have a car, and he calls her non stop.
I'm exhausted. The sons and I did most of the moving in and unpacking and didn't even get a thank you. Now it's 2:30 am. I was not going to bed until I got the computer some what back up. Since I have my own web site I was able to access that email, download all the important files because hubby plans on shutting it down and starting over.
I was going to throw some laundry in but I'm too tired to walk down the stairs. I will find out right now if the camera will import the pictures. I haven't figured out how to get this article typed, edited and posted by 8:59 but I will do my best. All with Gods help and the big gift He gave me PATIENCE.
