why I have been MIA
last night I sat down typing out my woes and telling whats been going on in my life. I was trying to cook dinner so was running back and forth, when lo and behold I come running back to find DH has hijacked the darned computer again. not only that he didnt even keep my page open so I could come back and finish. but basically the short version is as follows.DH got laid off from his job and we were hurting, going from 1300 a week to unemployment of 275 a week wasnt easy so I started babysitting to help close the gap so with 7 kids running arroung I hadnt had time to do much of anything except clean and sleep. Well now DH has found a new job he had to start out back at the bottom but 700 is still better than 275 we can live on 700 a week barely but we can if we buckle down. meanwhile all those crazy kids are back in school now so its just me and The baby I watch. I am hoping to get some time soon to start a few projects but not sure when that will happen. I have decided to take on my daughter Girl scout troop as the official leader. last year ther were 4 of us so things ran so easy but now 2 of the leaders have quit and apparently assumed they could help themselves to part of the troops money so on top of everything else I am now right smack in the middle of a girl scout audit/ invstigation. which means that until they find out what happened to the money our account is frozen so the 1 leader who is left besides myself is having to buy all our stuff ou of pocket right now because I dont even have the money to help her. The council is going to send us a check for $50 to hold us ove til october when everything is straightened out. I seriously cant believe that peple would take from7,8&9 yr old girls like that it just baffles me, and I hope they prosecute to the full letter of the law. Bad thing is becuse its less than 500 bux its only pettty theft and they will only be charged with a misdemeanor and likely will not get more than a civil fine. I am in the process of writing a letter to the council requesting that one of their sentencing requirements be that they have to come in and publicly appologize to the girls and explain why what they did was immoral and illegal that way at least the stooooopid wenches get that embarrasment factor from it. well ive rambled on long enough just thought Id share my excitement. oh yeah and last weekend DH was washing his truck and started having chest pains so we took him to the ER and he has plurisy. I am just glad it wasnt a heart attack he really had me scared.
