So yesterday I stopped at target to see if they had they belts I needed. Now I am not suppose to shop at target because they are owned by the French and they do not support the military, but I had no choice but to look there. I pulled into the parking lot and it is full of the special ed buses. I walk into the store and there were a ton of special ed children in there shopping for Christmas. I just smiled because I know that in a few years that will be Ryan in there shopping. Not only were they in there shopping but the target employees had set up a wrapping station and they were wrapping the gifts for the children. It just made my heart melt. These special ed children were so proud of the fact that they had a very nicely wrapped present to give.
On the way home from Target The traffic report came on. "Please avoid the 215 north as there is a military convoy taking up the freeway and they are moving slow". Yep. My husband will be seeing them out in 29 palms. I love seeing the convoys. I will pull off the road and sit on the hood of my car and just wave to them.
I was a sewing fool yesterday. I do not know what got into me, but I just sat down at my machine and started going to town. That is a good thing since I have a ton of sewing I need to get done before next Wednesday.
Today I am have to get into Ryan's room and go through some boxes of clothes. Over the summer I had two ladies give me a ton of clothing for Ryan and all the winter stuff I just shoved into a box, well I guess it is time for me to look at everything and figure out what exactly he has and does not have. Once I am done with that I am going to go back to my sewing.
I went on my no spending diet several months ago and I have to tell you that I am still keeping up with it, and it is really paying off. If it were not for me questioning every purchase and making do with what I had on hand.... well we would be in trouble. By watching every purchase I had the money to buy a new vacuum and to pay Amber's phone bill this month. I am just amazed at much money was wasted on stupid stuff.
I talked to my case worker yesterday and he told me to go ahead and file my appeal. He said it would actually be good for my case. So today I am going to file for an appeal hearing and I am going to try to get in touch with my congressmen. I may loose this whole case, but I am going to go down fighting!
Yesterday I found out the boyfriends mother had tossed the boyfriends cat outside. No what pisses me off about the whole thing is that cat has been an inside cat for over a year, and they (Nikki and the boyfriend) were telling me how scared this cat was. I do understand that they cat sprayed, but there are ways to solve that..... get the animal fixed. The boyfriend told me that he wants to get the cat fixed but that his mother is making him pay for it and the boyfriend does not have a job.
So I am going to call our animal control and get a hold of the low coast spay and neuter clinic. They do it for $10. Heck I am even going to offer to get all three of the cats fixed. I know this family would just let the animals keep breeding out of control, and then people like me end up having to foster the kittens. Oh don't get me started.
I better go get my day started. I have a lot to get done.
