In the Graphics Group, LILA, that I belong to we have these daily questions. I love reading what other people write. Since I've had "writer's block" the past few months, I thought I'd write what my answers are.

How are you and how was your weekend?

The good news is that things are really quiet around the RV Park. There are only a couple of SnowBirds that haven't left. The days are sunny and warms (mid 80's) and nights cool (high 60's) . I've really enjoyed the evening walks with the dog and kitty. Mau'i is happier without so many people around. She runs and plays, jumping on picnic tables and, up a tree or 2, down. Then she jumps into clumps of Spanish Moss that has fallen to the ground and rolls around in it, then shoots off with the hair on her back puffed up. I was thinking of growing her some Catnip, but honestly I don't think she needs it.

Now the bad stuff. I've been having migraines every day. Most of the time I wake up with one in the middle of the night and when I wake up in the morning. I know it's my son and the stress is he bringing on me.

He arrived here last week-no money, no food, no soap, no shampoo, no toothpaste. I had to supply quarters for him to do his own wash.
When he did get paid on Friday he had to pay Amscott (a drive in loan company), then go back 24 hours later and borrow money to make a Jeep payment (I think).
Given his money situation...or lack of it, he went to dinner at a friend's and bought and $8 Boston Cream pie. That was Ok.....but then on Saturday night he had a date, got drunk, spent 30 bucks (that I know of) and then was too hung over to do the things I put on the "Weekend list" of things I needed to have done around here.

He slept past noon Sunday. THEN when he did feel better, he went to take a few things to the storage unit, told me he'd be back in an hour and was gone for 5. He stopped a friends to watch the Basketball playoffs.

Well, he got home and I stayed quiet. Gave him a few dirty looks when he tried to justify why he HAD to stop at Jason's.

I told him I didn't have 50 bucks (including the cigarettes he smoked) to go out and blow and neither did he. I gave him all my savings to help him. And I need help around this place.

"You told me you'd help and where are you?" And since he arrived here with no soap, toothpaste, shampoo, food, etc that I was supporting him. AND I expected him to act more responsibly with his money since I am trying to help him.

Also I think I'm going to tell him that we are going to re-evaluate the living situation at the end of the week (when he gets his bonus money and I get my savings back).

See why I am getting migraines?

I've been thinking, too. That maybe I'll let him pay the lot rent and live here this summer and I'll go up to NY for the summer and part of the fall.

I miss the mountains and lakes so very much. I haven't been up there is 15 yrs. It's going to take some planning so I think I'll work on it and see if I can swing up dollar wise.

I work on a few tags this weekend. YaY!!

Donna asked this question. Does anyone want us to do tag offers? It doesn't seem like many people do anymore. Many of the graphics I buy, the termes of use require me to add word art or names to the tags. I have tons of tags that I've done and haven't posted yet. So I guess I am wondering if I should even bother.

Are you real sure you want to turn your home over to someone so irresponsible?You may not have a home to come back to-that scares me-you can't afford to chuck it all and get another home...ohhh-have him safely in some other place if you want to go away for awhile..just a suggestion....hope you don't mind-ya know I luv ya foxie-gal...

Wunderwoman said...

I'd love for you to come to my's not bad in the summertime. And you could teach me and my niece PSP (no I don't have an ulterior motive at all) LOL

Joyce said...

Do you trust him to take care of your place and pay the lot rent while you are away? I'd think hard on that one Bethe. Don't stop making those great tags. If you make them, they will come...
Hugs, Joyce

Connie said...

Haven't heard from you for a while-are you okay?Hope & pray so...hugs lil foxie

Roxy Broussard said...

I've only recently found your blog ane I love your honesty. My questions a little off message but I'm intrested in your tags. What are they?

Winivere said...

Girl, you may end up homeless if you play that game. Looks as if he has learned how to get his way. I wouldn't expect to see your savings again. Take 2 pills, roll up your sleeves, give him the want-ads, and let him solve his own problems. As long as you give him money, he has no reason to grow up.

Connie said...

How you be??

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to select a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
