Un-Great Escape

N had respite this weekend and M1 took M2 for Friday to Saturday so I had a day home alone and cleaned like it was my job. Oh wait it is my¬† job. It took me 3 hours to scrub N's room and it was nasty. I threw out 2 bags of garbage and donated... Continue Reading →

M1 texted me the other day and tells me she is getting arrested next week. Yes I did the same "huh" when she told me. Turns out last week when boytoy was caught shoplifting she had shoplifted too. Now she thought she had gotten away with it until the video showed it and now this... Continue Reading →

Facing Facts

Yesterday M1 had an appointment at the midwives to see how things were going. Good news is despite her diet of candy and ice tea, the baby appears to be healthy. I am hoping there is no long term damage due to her refusal to eat healthy but who knows. She was asked several times... Continue Reading →
