My life would be dull and easy if I did not have four teenagers living here. The boys are not on my last nerve, it is the girls!
So my old boss called me yesterday and he said that he has work. Work is good. That means that Chris and Amber will be working, even if they don't like the job, I don't care.
When I told Chris and Amber that they will be out working I got mixed reviews. Chris was thrilled and was willing to do whatever since he has not been able to find a job. Amber on the other hand gave me the look of death.
Amber said that she did not want to go get signatures, and that she hated the job. That was when I lost it! I told her in no uncertain terms that I don't care if she hates this job, I hate paying her bills every month! I also told her that she will work and she will make at least $100 a week, and every bit of that money will go to her bills.
Amber just looked at me and then opened her mouth. She had the nerve to say "well you have paid my bills this month." I kept my cool and told her that she will pay all of her June bill's, and then the next week she will pay all July's bills and this will keep going until there is no work left or until she finds another job that will pay her bills.
Lets just say that Amber is not happy with me, and I don't really care. I am not happy that she is not willing to do whatever it takes to pay her bills.
Now there is dear Nikki. This child thinks she is smarter then Rusty and I, and she thinks that she can walk all over us. Well, she is wrong and she is not as good at mind games as she thinks.
Nikki found a couple on craigslist that was selling some chinchillas. So Nikki went and paid the lady and even bought everything needed for this animal. However she did all of this without telling Rusty and I a thing.
Then Nikki starts asking me if she can have one. This was going on for several day's. I kept my cool, and I gave Nikki my list of reason's why she could not have it.
1. she can't afford it.
2. she can't afford the medical bills for this animal.
3. The cat's or the dogs will kill it.
Nikki did not care. So she finally got on my last nerve. I was at the store when it hit me on how to solve this problem.
I called Rusty and he got on craigslist and found this lady and sent her an e mail explaining that Nikki is only 17 and that she still lives at home, and that we did not give Nikki permission to purchase the animal. He also explained that we have several animals that would kill the chinchilla, and that if she had any more questions regarding this issue to please e mail Rusty.
Well, the lady e mailed Rusty back yesterday and informed him that Nikki had already paid for this damn animal and that she had turned other people away. Rusty just said well you can refund her money or you can keep it, but that the animal was not to come into this house.
As of yet I am not sure what this lady has decided, but I can bet she won't be handing over the chinchilla anytime soon.
Yesterday I worked on making a very simple lap blanket. It turned out really cool and I loved it. I was going to add it to my stack to give to the shut In's, but I think I am going to turn it into a "baby" blanket for a fellow blogger. I am not sure what it is about this blanket, but I love it.
I do have some sewing and some cleaning up to get done today. I don't think I am going to get any beach time in today, but I am hoping to get some in this weekend.
Life is good
