Everyone, even the dog, went to one of the homecoming games in town tonight. I get the house to myself. Hmmmm, wonder how easy child is paying? She called me today - she tried cashing a check on the owners account to find there wasn't funds in the account. It is more than I have in my savings and checking accounts so wouldn't work to cash off my accounts. So I get a call? "Mom, what am I suppose to do?" "Wait until Monday and try again." "But I need cash today!" "For what?" "Lunch" "Eat at home" "The game tonight" "No money, you don't need to go to the game." by the way, she called me an idiot tonight so she has to start over her month of being nice to me before getting anything from me. easy child took puppy to a friend's house for a pre-game supper. husband took difficult child to the game. So, with my night of freedom, I am taking a long hot bath.
