I just realized I hadn’t written a personal post in awhile. So here goes. I went on vacation to see my bestie back in July. Then towards the end of July, my step daughter did something to warrant us to get into an argument with her and ask her to leave. We told her our granddaughter could stay but she couldn’t. Of course, she took my grand daughter with her and has refused to let us see her. I’m upset about that, but I’ve been praying. It’s really all I can do right now.
If you want to know the whole reason we asked her to leave, you can read about it here and here. I’ve tried all I can to help my stepdaughter, but she doesn’t want to change. I can’t have here here doing the things she does and have it affecting my kids. I just hate that she’s using her daughter against us. I’m really bummed about not being able to see her.
But other than that, things are ok around here. So I found a job but I enjoy it.I started going to my cousin’s house and caring for her precious 7 month old. She’s super spoiled, but so cute. I get to sit and hold an adorable baby all day and watch tv LOL. I homeschool my kids, but my 15 yr old needs very little supervision and my 11 yr old likes to do his school work in the late afternoons. So it works for us. Rhiannon decided she wanted to be on the dance competition team this year so this babysitting opportunity was perfect.
My oldest son works for a local drilling company and is gone during the week. He’s home some on the weekends, but he spends a lot of time with his girlfriend (who is just the sweetest girl). He still lives here. Or I guess I should say he still stores his things here and sleeps here. He doesn’t really spend a whole lot of time with us when he’s off work. However, I’m glad that he’s so independent. He works hard and I’m super proud of him.
