In just about a month Kat has driven me over the edge. The final straw was one night last week when she asked if I would babysit so she could go out. She told me she would be home by 2 am. She rolled in a little after 5 am. I told her she has until the end of Oct. to be out of my house. If she didn't have KK she would be out right now. The question is how can I function through this next month. Since she's been here she's lost her benefits (again) for not turning in the correct paperwork, lied to me endlessly, quit her medications and counseling and is just horrible. She doesn't take proper care of KK and so many people on here have said for me to get custody. Over the span of nearly 3 years I have contacted CPS at least 8 times that I remember. Most recently I sent them a photo of KK being held by some guys surrounded by beer and cigarettes. They visit Kat and do nothing. She has even said, "I don't know why you call CPS, they won't do anything. All it does is stress me out." I cannot stand her- she's lazy, a liar, manipulative. She has not intention of changing. But the stress of worrying about KK is literally eating me up. It's bad when they aren't here, but when it's right in my face it drives me insane. I will say Kat has been doing all the housework I've asked her to do, but really... I give her no cash except for bare minimum gas money because I live out in the boonies. It doesn't seem to bother her that she has no money, no place to live, no resources. At the grocery I buy what I like and stuff for KK. I buy nothing for her. She has to eat whatever there is and I'm a vegan, while she loves meat. Lots of evenings she eats at one of her friend's houses. Most of them are even tired of her mooching. OK, rant is done. I just had to get all of it out. I know this will be a tough month, but I will survive. Any objective ideas to help me get through are much appreciated.
