Sorry normally don't do pity parties but if I don't vent I'm gonna explode! I'll try to keep the whining & cursing to a minimum. No valuable information in this post - just a bunch of verbal vomit! Sorry this is gonna be a long one. So a few days ago homeless guy was trying to get me to take 2 kittens off his hands; world seems to know I got a soft spot for cats with hard luck stories. I contemplated taking in the 2 kittens on the idea each girl could have their own cat like a therapy animal and maybe Angel would leave my 2 cats alone - the male is only 5 years old and developed a stress disorder / seizures. So that night while I was trying to convince myself to take these kittens and that having 4 cats on leashes out at the campground wouldn't be too much hassle; Angel had a blow out I have no idea what over (scary part was it was an hour after night medications) sister got kicked & hit, tv got bounced off its face the female cat got thrown at R's head. Well that decides it I'm not bringing a baby anything in here. So me (the idiot who talks too much) let slip at R's therapist yesterday how close I came to being a 4 cat household, R started whining about a kitty - I told her help with pets we have & I will let her get a hamster until we get Angel out of the house (current target 13 months) I'm praying the 2 cats I have can survive that long. Last night the girls start their usual squabbling and R goes storming out of the room yelling about how it's all Angel's fault she doesn't get a kitten. So Angel starts up that she doesn't get a new kitten because R is a liar saying she is hurting the cat (I remember her making one fly the night before) so during her blowout she is throwing everything she can get her hands on at her sister. Its glass smashing, furniture throwing, I got caught in the cross fire a couple times a handful of pennies, a bunch of smashed m&ms in the face etc. Her older brother starts screaming back at her and throwing things (shoes etc) and keeps feeding her rage but some of the lines he's crossing; I was thinking they are probably both going to jail or the mostly innocent one (R) is going to end up in foster care protective custody. Luckily Sat night in the big city cops came, acted like I was wasting their time and just need to get control of my kids. Understand about everyone on our police force has met my kids by now and most of them know I only call when I can't take it anymore. I don't care if their jail is full I would rather have spent night at the crisis center with Angel then let her get the idea her behavior is acceptable. GRRRRRR Her brother has a bachelors in psychology why does he keep provoking her? GRRRRR Any way I'm livid right now with my kids, my police department, yes even myself for not knowing when to keep my big mouth shut. Today same thing everyone doing their own thing but in same room - me & son both on computers with girls watching a movie on tv; a neighbor starts doing yardwork running a weed whacker. So Angel closes front door so they can hear movie, brother yells about being too hot, Angel wants to turn tv volume up brother won't allow that either - I say "come on it's last 10 minutes of their movie why can't they hear how it ends?" Well to my son this is me taking Angel's side like I do on everything according to him. Screaming match escalates to throwing stuff again. So Angel threw a metal file box and hit my son on his foot so he felt justified to pick it up and slam Angel in the back of the head with it. Not sure but I think my son has a couple bones broken in his foot; it figures the only one in the house with no insurance! Serves him right he knows better then to play with Angel! They both got marks today if cops come out - someone probably both of them are going to jail! So to make a long story short (for a vent for me that was short LOL) my Mother's day do over isn't going anywhere near the way I had planned. Sitting here typing on the internet instead of piling my cats & clothes in the van and planning escape UGH need to quit planning stuff just do it! Wonder if we have bread? Thinking the gourmet Sunday dinner is going to be PB & J because guess what? MY STRIKE IS BEING CONTINUED INDEFINITELY they thought I was lazy before just watch me! If anyone else is having a weekend like this feel free to growl and huff and snort right along with me misery loves company... I'm not miserable just lost my ability to laugh at the moment. GRRRRRR!
