So I had to use the desktop which we have upstairs in this little officey type room that has a built in desk. Over the weekend, we got a few storms and guess what? The roof leaked! My kids came downstairs and said that water was on the computer! Shit! I run upstairs to find my modem soaked, my mouse soaked, water on my keyboard and a few drops on the monitor. Thankfully, somehow, the only thing that didn't work was the mouse. I couldn't believe the modem still worked, but it must be water proof? lol
My husband got a new car last week, a used one. Our mechanic looked at it and said yep, there's a shit load of stuff wrong with it, like, a lot. Luckily, and thankfully, we have a great mechanic who is willing to do work for us on credit and we make payments to him on a weekly basis. Who does that these days? I think it could have something to do with him doing business for my family for the last 30 years or so? Plus, we have been faithful about making our payments every week. ... We thought my car needed a speed sensor for the transmission, which was an easy fix. Not. The entire fucking transmission needs rebuilt. Soo.. two cars, and two cars down?? Are you kidding me?? Once again, our wonderful mechanic offered to rebuild it for us on credit, charging us for parts only, no labor, just because he feels sorry for us because of our bad luck, lol. At least it's summer, so I don't need a car during the day. My husband's car is getting fixed right now and as soon as his is done, mine goes in. *sigh*.
Today, I talked to a friend I made my first month at school, who is a self proclaimed computer nerd. He said my drive failed on my lap top and he has one that may work. MAY. If not, then I have to purchase a new drive and I have no idea how much that will be, nor do I have any extra money due to it all going to automobile repairs! He is going to look at it on Friday and give me the bad news. Of course it will be bad news, it ALWAYS is!!!!
I was excited about having a week off of school, but it is not going so well and I've spent most of it cleaning the house. Does the cleaning ever end? It does not make me very happy when I clean and it is destroyed within a few hours, thanks to a certain 6 yr old and two 5 year olds, who, by the way, are making this summer miserable. Omg, I was soo looking forward to them being off of school for the summer but they are making me miserable with their constant fighting and arguing! I'm actually ready for me to go back to school next week just so I can get away from these heathens, lol.
Oh yeah, then to end this great week, the mouthy bratty little neighbor kids that I've posted before were at it again. Well, actually, their mom is now. The youngest brat was being mean to our son, not giving him back his shoes and then hitting him with his shoes while my husband was calling them home. So we told our kids just to stay in our yard for the night. We go inside, next thing we know, we hear a bunch of screaming and yelling. Poor Little C (that's what I will call him, he's the brother of the bratty girls that is actually very sweet and plays with our kids on a daily basis) was in our yard, and his sisters were yelling at him and our kids. My husband told the girls to leave and they wouldn't leave. He told them a few times to go home but they wouldn't do it so he finally told them that if they didn't leave he was gonna call the cops on 'em (scare tactic, of course we wouldn't do it). Well, they went running home and the next thing we know, big mama comes out yelling at my husband... calling him a fat ass and me a fat whale, calling us losers and scum.. saying all of these things in front of her children and our own. Yeah, that's a great role model there, isn't it? Teach your kids to call others names, yay for the mom of the year! Then she tried to blame our kids for stealing her kids' shoes, even though her daughter found all of their shoes in their own yard! Alll of this bullshit just because her kids are mouthy little brats who don't know how to respect anyone.. guess they come by it naturally. She then told Little C that he is not allowed to play with our kids anymore, poor little guy was crying because of it. It's not fair to him or our children that they can't play together just because they have immature parents. Can't blame the kids for the way they act, they had to have learned it from somewhere. Ugh, I hate drama and I hate drama starters. I hate this week.
