I simply dont understand what CPS is for. What in hell's bell's does it matter in the greater scheme of things what a house looks like if the parents are doing drugs and the kid is eating cereal half the month and oodles of noodles half the month? There are kids who are homeless and living in cars with no running water and they are lucky if the windows actually shut but CPS doesnt see that as an issue but a hole in the wall is some big deal. If I ran the country it would be parents who took drugs and used the household money to buy those drugs that should be looked at most closely. I mean I dont have a problem if someone wants to drink a beer after mowing the lawn or having a glass of wine with dinner. Or even smoking a joint from time to time but when the recreational drugs/alcohol take away from paying the family bills and cause kids to go hungry then that is a HUGE problem. Oh well, I have had it. I dont care what CPS says, I will not put up with carpola anymore. OH, and did you know that CPS never even contacted me...the landlord and owner of this home they are renting? Dont you think that should have been something like close to the top of their list to do? Make sure we even knew they were there! I am extremely upset over something Cory said to me Saturday night and I hung up on him. He has kept calling wanting to talk to me and I am refusing. Im going to send him a letter telling him that I am angry with him and why and that I dont want him to contact me again. He is to give Billy the rent money and he can bring it to me. Or give it to his father, I dont care. I dont want to see him again. He basically called me a liar and I wont take that from him. His life and his problems are not mine to solve anymore. I had the hardest time not going off after I hung up because Monkey was here and I didnt want to call her father every bad name in the book in front of her. Our CPS here isnt doing anything and one day some kid is going to get really hurt after they close a case and all hell is going to break loose.
