>Panicking because of a gift ?   Leave a comment

>Everyone started getting panicky again for all the wrong reasons! Vicky didn’t feel Kenny got enough for his B-day, so she asked Aaron and I, to go out and look for a Nintendo ‘Wii’. The thing costs $300, and they won’t have a roof over their heads next month !…
I mean.. am I missing something here ? Here I am stressing over trying to get $200 for heating oil for my place, $150 more to get two new tires for my Honda because the treads are non-existent, and to get my car inspected. And they’re worrying about getting a stupid game platform! Why does Vicky insist she replace lost time with the kids with gifts ?

>A serious emergency   Leave a comment

>We all had a big scare this past weekend. Amanda started getting sick Friday, throwing up and getting serious cramps. Anyways I met Vicky and Kevin over and Patient First, where they took X-rays and tested for pregnancy, both turn out nothing. So, with their ‘expertise’ they diagnosed Amanda having kidney stones. Anyways, they gave Amanda something for the pain and nausea and sent her on her way home (I’m finding out this is something Patient First is really good at). Buy Saturday afternoon, Amanda was still really sick so Vicky and Kevin took her over to Chesapeake General were they conducted pelvic exam and to find out that Amanda had a tampon in her for over a week. (I was getting really worried… because now I’m thinking about TSS and all the stories on that) The doctors then gave her a booster shot of antibiotics and headed home after that.
Meanwhile she cannot keep anything down whatsoever to the point where she is throwing up bile and getting very dehydrated. I even tried to get her to drink Pedialyte and eat a handful of Applejacks, in which she just threw that up 5 minutes later. So I took her back to Chesapeake, to if anything, at least get an IV in her to re-hydrate and put some fluids in her.
We spent over 5hours from 12am to 5am (Sunday morning) there. They shoved an IV in and also did a urine and blood test, which came out nothing, which shocked me, because I would’ve expected something. Anyways, I called right before I came home tonight, and Amanda is up, and 10lbs lighter as she only weighs 95lbs! But she’s feeling a lot better… and from she told me she just ordered an Italian Sub. J J he-he (Kenny helped around the house doing her chores)
We’ve got some wonderful kids. I feel we’re very blessed to have wonderful kids. I just want them to do something with their lives, because they have so much potential, but I feel Vicky isn’t really encouraging them enough.

>Just a lil frustration.. just a little   Leave a comment

>Well, I took off the past three days so I could help everyone move from the apartments, BUT as plans with Vicky usually never follow thru, I sat around and wasted 16 hrs of PAL time, and to top that off Vicky found out that all the stuff in storage that was supposed to be sold/auctioned off she was able to buy back for $800.
$800 dollars !
I think that was such a waste because Sue will probably NEVER see her dolls, and the money could’ve been used for covering Rent/Bills…etc.
I told Vicky she should get her priorities straight as the family won’t have a roof over their head, but have a lot of dolls to play with!…LOL !

Amanda surprises me every day J As she and Bri were walking down to the gas station, a guy pulled up to both the girls and asked if they needed a ride. The girls of course said no, but as they looked inside his car they noticed the man was jerking off right in front of them! I give Amanda a lot of credit because she was smart enough to get the license number! They were interviewed by the lady cop who patrols the area. Amanda is still in shock.

>An awesome artist!!   Leave a comment

>Me, Brian, Daynes, Ida, and Lori (of all people) went to check out Marlaynas’ drawings/paintings the TCC Art show in Portsmouth. She was really surprised with the T-Shirts that everyone came with. She won $200 in art supplies for David and Goliath.
She drew a chalk drawing of David & Goliath with David having Goliaths sword one hand and Goliaths head in his other… Marlanya has a very keen eye for the body form – she outlined the details of Davids muscles.. it was amazing!
I took Amanda out to Applebees, and while we were their she applied for a position… I hope she gets an interview !.. It’s the only way she’ll feel better about herself.
