Swee’Pea #1 will be five years old on Saturday.
I know!!!!!! Can you believe it???? Of course, the usual drama is swirling around her birthday like the dirty water going down the drain after you’ve washed your dog.
Popeye texted me on July 23, “I need a HUUUUGE favor!!!!! Please call me ASAP.”
Sigh….”Huge Favor” always, always, always means money. I didn’t call him ASAP. I just figured if he really needed something he would call me…which of course he did. Bottom line, they were shutting off his electricity again (I went through my blog and saw that I paid his electricity bill around this time last year too) and he needed $630.00 immediately or it would be off by 5:00.
I told him I couldn’t do it. I reminded him about the contractor abandoning the job and his sister’s wedding and the fact that he now made more than his father did. He said he understood and then immediately called his little sister and asked HER for the money. Can you believe it??? This guy has no shame!!!! L.J. called me in tears and I told her she was not to lend him any money – that she had wedding expenses to cover and she couldn’t afford to subsidize her brother.
Back to the birthday. Well, the electricity has been off for weeks and they’ve been living with her mother…again. Popeye THINKS they may be back in his house by the weekend of September 7th when we plan to drive the 5 hours to VA. He states if they are still living with his monster-in-law, we can meet up with him and the kids at a Chuckie Cheese or at the Mall.
Yeah……no. I want to see my grandchildren, but I’m not meeting up with them in a Mall for an hour on a Saturday and then saying “See you in 6 months!” and driving back home.
We used to visit at the monster-in-law’s home, but she has said some rather evil things about and to my son so I prefer not to be in her company. He probably deserved every rotten thing said about him, but you know how it is – I can talk about him likes he a dog, but no one else can.
Oh, by the way, his wife is furious because they don’t have the money to finish her rather large and ugly memorial tattoo of her father who was found dead two years ago in his car after the neighbor through a bucket of water on him to see if he was just sleeping…
Priorities, ladies and gentlemen, priorities!!!!
So, do I wait to see if they’re back home by the 7th or should I just send Swee’Pea her presents now?
