My fiance’s vehicle broke down and we were going to rent a car so I could get to work today and tomorrow; as well as take care of some things we need to do. However, we are behind on the power bill so they won’t let him rent one. I’m so angry because I have to make it to work, but now have no option. How do you pay a bill when you can’t get to a job?!?!?!? My license has been taken from me because I owe back child support, same dilemma there. How do I pay if I can’t get to work?!?! This world really sucks.
****Update 2/2/2015: I made it to work(no thanks to Enterprise) and calmed down about the whole situation. I still think your bills should not be anything that a rental company could ask you for.
You’d think selling in this fashion would be better than just having a yard sale because there is a bigger market to see your items. That part is nice, the chances of someone happening along your item who may actually have a use for it is higher. However, people seem to think your a damn store automatically because so many stores have taken it over. As long as you send the item you took a picture of they should be happy right? Wrong. I sold an Avon perfume I’ve had sitting around in a cabinet because I’m not in the habit of trying to keep a bunch of clutter and crap I will never use. The item still had celophane around it because I had more than one and the one I did open I didn’t like. I thought the scent was disgusting, but that’s my opinion. By post office regulations, you just need to wrap stuff like that in brown paper and put a label on it. But I completely wrap it in packing tape to avoid getting wet from rain. That wasn’t good enough for one lady and she put in a case saying she didn’t get what was listed. Somehow it had no cap on it. I put in to the case to return it for a refund. I still haven’t gotten it back but I’m highly frustrated. I know what I sent and either she is lying or someone at the post office screwed with it. If I didn’t actually need some money coming into the house I’d just throw the crap out or give it to a charity. I am sick of the dishonest people in this world and wish they’d either grow up or have a massive heart attack. That’s now a lesson learned. I will video every shipment I set up.
My dad got a letter the day before yesterday saying he had to repay the disability money he has received over several years in the amount of $73,643 and the plan to garnish his Social Security as well as taking the disability from him. The reason, he has/had a warrant for kidnapping my younger brother and I from HRS in Washington state back in 1985.
For those that don’t know HRS and CPS are the same organization. Some believe they changed the acronym because many people were calling them the Home (w)Recking Service.
Supposedly, back then, my parents were abusing us (there were four kids at the time) and back then HRS swooped in and took the kids in the home without talking first. One police officer(dressed in a suit not uniform) knocked on my parents’ door and told my mom something about needing to talk to her.She started to close it to take the chain off the door and this guy decided to shove the door open and right onto her(she wound up wearing a sling for a while after that). During that commotion she wound up pissing herself and so did the potty training little girl next to her(me). They took the children that were home. My younger brother, me, and our Older brother with Hydrocephalus.
At some other point that day they took another older brother of mine from his high school. He went to get something from his locker and the same cop that hurt my mother slammed him again the lockers. The cop was telling him they are there to help him. Yeah, by slamming him against a locker…that’s so helpful! That same cop is in jail from what I understand for molesting little boys in the system. I don’t remember his name but my brother does. During this crap my dad was in the field with his military job. Which by the way is a demanding life.
The HRS worker that I remember is Mr. Hornby. Not sure if spelled right but that sounds right to me. This man was some work. I had told him I wanted my daddy and he told me he was my daddy now. I remember that and it still pisses me off! I was a smart ass little girl and let him know he was not. I remember staying with one family at the time. Mom and dad let me know I was only gone for two weeks. They went through their court battle and the judge gave us back to them. When I got into my mom’s arms I told her that man hurt my tushy. Now in our family, that was the word for the front of the female areas not the butt like in many other.
I remember mom and dad telling us about the guy saying they had a report of such and such abuse; and they tried to say that my dad’s Vietnam medals meant he cared more for his career than his children(when they told us what happened in court). He had been out for a few years after Vietnam and the only reason he went back was to pay for my older brother’s medical issues. Not many other jobs were good pay. My mom didn’t want to be with a military man but proved to be a damn good military wife! My oldest two brothers loved playing little soldiers. How the hell is that abuse.
When mom got my younger brother and I back she saw we had lost significant weight in the two weeks we were gone. There are pictures of before and after. I’m not sure how much time passed that they had to go back to court and deal with this crap again. This time it was a commissioner who was overseeing proceedings and he said to take us back to HRS. When mom and dad got home with us dad decided to take off with us. He went AWOL to keep his children. The cops put in a kidnapping case – which is incorrect by the way since at worst he could get custodial interference. HRS didn’t give birth to me so I couldn’t be kidnapped by my parents from those bastards. When my dad let them find us he had to submit proof to someone in the military about certain things in order not to go to prison. My dad did so. This paperwork of whatever my dad knew that got him into this crap is still out there and hidden.
My mom tried to take care of this warrant a few years ago by calling the issuing police station and they had no record of it from what they told her. But it keeps coming back to haunt him. My dad loved his country and all it has done for him so far is screw him over. Mom died in 2012, dad had a stroke in February of this year and can’t do what he loves, much less work. He didn’t get to retire from the military because of this family interference. Now that he CAN”T do things they are going to take away everything he has. I will fight this as much as I can and make it very public!
First, I want to apologize that I’m not more consistent. If any of you are like me, the more consistent bloggers are hard to keep up with. I don’t have time to go through all the blogs I like (or sometimes even a few) within a day. Sometimes I feel rather lazy because of it being such a simple thing to read and yet so hard to get to in a day.
For the most part, this has been a pretty good month. There has still been some terrible things, but the kids have been more cooperative since we started them on a relatively lenient schedule and I’ve gotten lots of things done(with the help of the service our boys have been enrolled in).
The bad: found out my boyfriend has Lyme Disease and almost couldn’t get his meds twice. We did because of the kindheartedness and compassion of a nurse he spoke with and to her we are very grateful. He has applied for medicaid but apparently they are having some changes and haven’t fully approved his application. Sounds almost like there isn’t anyone available to get it done. He is trying to find other work but it’s an area with not much selection. I’ll be glad when we move(he has something lined up there).
I have started selling all the excess we have on Ebay and can almost cover my half of the bills some months(can’t wait until I can safely be off government services).Although I still can’t quite cover the bills and also need to be able to pay on my child support for my oldest son so I’m definitely not gloating. All I’ve been selling is what my girls grow out of that has stayed in good condition and the Avon stuff I still have from when I tried to do that as a business. I am deeply in debt from college financial aid, child support, and not being able to have full time employment for quite some time. I aim to be completely self-sufficient as my kids and a good job don’t seem to coincide with each other for their demands of my time. I value my family more than a job and will not be at work outside of the home for someone else to raise my babies. It’s bad enough for me not to even have the opportunity to see one of my four biological children. He probably has some animosity towards me at this point and I certainly don’t blame him. Trying to make it without my mother to do all she did for me creates some serious setbacks on time and ability to see him. It’s all on me though.I have to focus on the ones that are with me more at this point and strive to pay his father the money I owe in child support, then I can see if he’d like to spend some time with me. I really am glad he has his father to take care of him as it would have been a lot harder for me to do. I know that now seeing what I have to deal with for my other son. I think in some cases it’s better for a boy to be with his father.
My boyfriend and I have both decided to home-school our boys. Both his boy and mine are really excited by the idea because both had been picked on and borderline bullied. Also, we do know our boys better than the school system and feel they would be better served with the time they’d spend with their respective parent. That undivided attention will help them and probably get on their nerves at some point.The daily schedule for the household has helped all of the children to listen better and to be a little more cooperative. I know there will be days when it is harder for them to cooperate than others but it has done a lot of good for them. I even get a chance to read one of the many books every so often. That hasn’t happened since they were born because they get so loud with play and want all attention. With this, they get attention in increments, but are busy when not.
The service our boys are in took a lot of the families to a water park yesterday. It was nice to get out together(most of us anyway…two had to stay with grandma for personal reasons) and actually have fun! The boys didn’t complain, which is awesome because they usually have a complaint about something. It was really fun and not something we’d get to do otherwise in our current situation.
I know I’m forgetting some of what I wanted to say, although, it may have been too much as well. I sometimes wonder why anyone would read my blog as most of it is complaints about one thing or another. I keep it up because I know how I feel when I see that someone has dealt with the same things I have in reading other blogs. I know I’m not the only ones who goes through, or has gone through the issues I talk about. I also know it helps to see that there are others who know what you are going through even if they don’t understand your exact feelings towards it or feel the same as you during the situation.
Thought I would share some new(to me) ways I found to use Bitcoin.

I haven’t been on here for a while because I’ve been up to a lot. Same old with CPS and the school, but also have appointments and have been doing some researching. My boyfriend has been into the idea of Bitcoin and Ive learned very little about it. I am, however using links(which I will post here) to get some for free. Going to find out what happens from it for myself and leaving them for anyone who would like to do the same. The previous link is the main site for Bitcoin and tells details I couldn’t really explain myself. These are my referral links so I do get something when you use them.
Now the links:

So I had the pleasure of working for this company for 2 weeks at a hotel. It’s my fault I don’t have the job so that’s not my complaint. My complaint is that they don’t seem to care when it comes to answering a question about when you are going to get paid. Their hours of operation are not outside the same hours people normally have to work so that makes it hard to deal with them any other way besides the phone. However, they still have not answered my voice message about when and how I will receive pay for the time I worked. I get so highly irritated by the fact that now companies have the ability to be jerks based on the fact that the economy has not gotten better yet. Now they seem unwilling to give anyone a chance to work or be human once you have the job. I have worked very hard in my life but as I get older I realize that I prefer to take care of my family over working myself to death. Of course, I have to work to take care of my family but too many jobs have some unrealistic expectations. First, if I have to call in for my kids I am going to. If I stayed up all night with my sick child it will effect my work the next day. So this world is really becoming lousy when a job expects you to neglect your family in order to keep it.
