Hubby and I went to see the traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall after church today. It was truly a humbling experience to see the size of the memorial, and the number of names on it. I was very glad we went. Then, on the way home, Miss KT calls Hubby, because my phone was off. As usual, she refuses to talk to him, saying only, "Tell Mom to call me." I check my phone. She called, but, also as usual, didn't leave a message. I called her anyway, and got her voice mail, and didn't leave a message, because I figured it wasn't important. No return call, no nothing. The drive took about 45 minutes. We get home, and I discover my dog has been left in the back yard. It's 100 degrees outside. There is no shade and no water. Miss KT is nowhere to be found. I totally lost it. Buddy's panting, his nose is hot, so we got him inside, gave him water, and put the cooler on high. He's doing much better now. I'm ready to strangle someone. I call her, and it goes straight to voice mail. I scream. Then I text her, letting her know she is dead meat for her irresponsibility in taking off and leaving my dog out back in this heat. She finally calls back, and I'm screaming. She gives me the impatient "I'm soooorry" and I get mad all over again. I tell her exactly what I think of her stinky attitude towards Hubby, how she could have talked to him when she had him on the phone, her inability to complete the chores I ask her to do, and, again, for leaving my dog outside. She responds with, "Fine then. I'll take all my stuff and move in with Nana until I leave for college." I'm still screaming, and tell her, "You do whatever it is you need to do. I'm telling you what's gonna change because I've had enough, and I don't care if you leave in three days or not." She calls back about 10 minutes later, wanting me to tell her to move in with Nana so she can be the professional victim again, with me throwing her out. I tell her again to do whatever it is she needs to do. Then I call my mom. I guess she's moving in for three days. With all the stuff she's taking to college. And her birthday is Tuesday. At least my Buddy is all right.
