Someday I'm going to have more time to spend around here! I do lurk almost every day, I just don't always feel like writing!
But anyway, I'm here now
Last week was mostly filled with errands and trying to get the house in order. Jason's back is finally feeling better, so he's able to help more, but we hadn't done a nice thorough cleaning in weeks.
I bought Catching Fire on Friday, both for my iPod (for work-I listen to music and movies while I clean) and on DVD. Nice thing is that one of the local stores here was giving away a ton of stuff with purchase of it, which I thought was awesome, since I planned on buying it anyway.
I'm trying to take today to rest since I've been working six day weeks (just three hours at the tax office) and have been super busy all week so I'm finally watching movies Lynne
-I can see where you're coming from on that series. Personally, if you ever get the chance, I'd read the connecting series, Katie Weldon. She just wrote those in the last five years and Katie has a less than perfect background story than Christy's. I really love the fresh take on it!
Glad you finally finished that editing job, I know that was weighing on you. What's the age requirement for booster seats there? I know my grandma once reminded my Mom that I should've been in one until I hit 4'8, but I didn't reach that until like age 10! I'm only 5'ft!Song
-Well, the short story is that Jason's sister got away from the all the drama by moving to Alaska with her boyfriend (now husband), who was in the Army at the time. Now that Jason's Mom is no longer in their childhood home and has downsized to an apartment, the boys, who are 22 and 24 (I think), live with their Dad, Steve. And they don't do ANYTHING. They literally sit around, sleep, and play video games. There's a lot of tension between Jason and his sister and the two youngest ones because the oldest were pushed to go to college and both got jobs in high school. They messed up on the two younger ones, who basically leech off their Dad..sometimes the 24 year old, who is a bit 'special', works in the office, but only under duress. The 22 year old always has a random job of some sort, but nothing consistent.
It's always easier when they don't come with us to dinner because they don't get along and the 24 year old isn't a good communicator and is really rude and brash a lot of the time. He drives me crazy. Poor Jason, having to deal with all this :/
Wow..that sounds so intense! Pushing kids over?! That's awful. Poor kids! Bad parenting in action, huh? :/
