Update to the Car Crunching and, of course, more Voldemort drama
Hi STers, hope everyone had at least a half-way enjoyable holiday.
So..update on the car crunch, http://www.steptalk.org/node/21955, we got the estimate on what it will take to repair the damage to my bumper: 2K, being paid for by osd's gran. Additionally, gran denied osd a birthday present in light of repairing my vehicle. At this point, I'm just glad it's being repaired. I have no interest in what message running and having gran toss money at all of osd's mistakes is sending to osd. Not my problem.
So Voldemort is outta town until Sunday, left last week with Hodor for a, "psychology retreat", in Florida. (Interestingly, I looked up what she was attending for two reasons: 1. I'm nosy and 2. She claimed it would be, "beneficial" to Hodor. Here's the link, seems kinda silly to me: http://www.theavatarcourse.com/en/ )
Long, stupid story short - Voldemort has already started down the path of name-calling and belittling ysd like she did with osd five or so years ago - dh and I are guessing that Voldey is trying to show off for the Kendoll, since he went on the retreat with them, (shocking!). Yesterday, ysd went to feed and water the animals and returned with two garbage bags of clothes and a giant canvas bag of toiletries and make-up. This weekend should be interesting for them.
Today I registered for classes beginning this fall to finish up my degree; I also indicated that I am open to work study if it is available to me. If not, I will find a part-time job this Fall/Winter to supplement my trips outta state to see dd and ds. Dh will most likely be working Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I'm making other plans.
I can't even get into how stupid this all is. osd is probably gonna be fired from her job, she hasn't saved ONE PENNY since she started working. I told dh he needs to talk to her and her gran about what osd's living situation will be once she graduates because staying with us is not an option. I cannot say that enough. This is the other reason I am getting a second job, if osd isn't made to move out by the time she finishes high school, I WILL get an apartment of my own. I've already started looking and can absolutely afford one, closer to work with no issues.
