… I love him but I just can’t live here anymore


Posted: April 13, 2009 in Secrets

I’m not good at doing shady things. It’s not in my genetic make up but I did something today regarding our utility service because I thought it would make it easier on us financially and I think it’s going to bite me in the ass big time! So instead of less worry.. I have tons more.

Life Lesson # 367: Don’t Do Shady Shit

Wanna Annoy Me?

Turn the ringer off the only phone you have available to you when I ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY have to talk to you about something important.

Catching Up With Zep

Zep was the friend of Weed’s that Chief has had working at the shop since he openned but unfortunately had to let him go because he just couldn’t afford to pay him.

Chief has known Zep since middle school :: maybe longer :: and even though he does his “recreational” things, he’s a really good kid who is just as fanatical about cleanliness and I am and who realizes the importance of having a job and doing that job well.

I wish I could adopt him!!

Since Chief let him go, he’s been working at one of the convenience store chains in the area. Great place to work for and alot of opportunity for advancement and management school.

Anyway.. we really haven’t seen him around much but the other day he stopped into the shop because he had lost his W2 form and needed a copy.

He was working last night so I drove it over to him and we had an interesting conversation. Particularly about Weed and the Crack Whore.

It’s no surprise that Weed is trying to make a full time job out of dealing.. it’s not surprising that he looks disgusting and that he adopted the suburban-boy-gone-gangsta persona.

It’s not surprising that the Crack Whore can down 30 percs and still stand up AND it’s not surprising that even Zep :: who is more of an insider with them that I am :: shakes his head and wonders what the hell happened to this kid and how they’re paying rent, cable, etc. when nobody actually “works”

Zep said that he hasn’t been to the crack den in about a month and with the shifts that he working he doubts that he wants anything to do with Weed anymore.

I told him what had happened about the whole cell phone bill drama and the things that both Weed and the Crack Whore said to Bubba.. how he’s going to jump me while I walk the dogs .. stab his father.. break into the house and steal 90.00 worth of stuff :: don’t ask.. it’s the junkie mind at work here :: and that she was going to slap me across the face.

He just shook his head at the absurdity of it all and said the same thing that Chief and I have been saying… one of these days he’s going to wake up dead.

… surprisingly, Easter didn’t turn out to be that bad of a day. Believe me, I’ve had worse.

Cheif and I got up early and headed down to the shop. He needed to make a few dishes for dinner and I had to get the boys Easter bags together and prepare the eggs for the egg hunt.

My egg hunt idea is great for kids who are on the borderline of tween and young adult. Y’know the one’s who say they are two old for that kind of stuff but still want to do it?

In each egg I put in a different piece of candy :: small stuff like a lemonhead, a jelly bean, a mini reece’s cup :: and then each piece of candy had a coin value. This way, they don’t get to eat alot of candy and my cost is minimal and they LOVE money so it got them excited.

Got me a messed up house with curtains pushed aside and things pulled out of drawers but it ws ok.

Chief also made us a traditional breakfast :: cheesy-eggs, bacon, toast, homefries :: We all haven’t sat down to Sunday breakfast since we openned the shop so that was nice also.

During breakfast, Chief tells Bubba that if he didn’t want to come with us to my brother’s then he’d have to go to his mother’s the crack whore’s. Bubba objected, wanting to know he just couldn’t stay home and play video games all day. Chief said that he thought about it all night and it isn’t right for him not to be with either parent. That’s just the way it is.

And even though he had called her a bum at one point, he decided to go there because he said he would know everybody. So Chief called her up, let her a message and she text back that she wanted him freshly showered with clean clothes because they were going out to dinner.

Don’t get me started on that because Bubba started complaining that he didn’t HAVE clean clothes. And who’s fault is that?

But anyway … so we finally all get ready to go where we needed to go. We dropped Bubba off at the Crack Whore’s and me, Chief and Spaz commenced on the hour drive to my brother’s.

Late. As ussual.

Everything wasn’t bad so far.. I mean, I would have rathered Chief put his foot down about Bubba coming with us but him not being with us made for a peaceful drive with no fighting and complaining.

But then we stopped at a local convenience chain store for coffee and Spaz said something about getting coffee through the McDonald’s drive thru and I said that I didn’t like their coffee, it sucked.

Spaz promptly responded with “You Suck”

It was uncalled for and it hurt my feelings. I mean.. well.. what’s the sense of going into it. I didn’t even get a thank you from either of them after they openned their Easter gifts or after the egg hunt.

Chief turned around and started repremanding him so I clamped my mouth shut .. bit my upper lip.. pulled into the convenience store and told Chief that I’d be right out.

He asked if I was ok and I just shrugged my shoulders and made a face and got out of the car.

He told Spaz that “.. now would be a good time for an apology”

Spaz didn’t say anything and truthfully, I din’t want him to. It wouldn’t have been sincere so what is the point?

When I came back, Spaz was slumped down in the back seat obviously having to listen to Chief’s beratement. I just got in the car and said something silly to Chief to let him know that I wasn’t upset with him and that I planned to have a good day.

We were the last ones to get to my brother’s, of course, and it didn’t take long for Spaz to start playing with my nephew and my nephew’s three cousins :: all ages 10 and under :: My brother has a large yard and one of those wooden playset things so the were running around being boys and that gave me and Chief the opportunity to have adult conversations with OTHER adults without being constantly interrupted.

We left a little after 6pm. Chief had eaten too much so he wasn’t up to chit chatting so I occupied Spaz with conversation and that made the ride go alot smoother.

When we arrived home, I started cleaning up the house and getting the laundry started.

NOTE TO SELF: Call landlord. The sewer is backing up again.

While I was washing the dishes, Chief came up behind me and wrapped his arms around me, putting his chin on my shoulder. He said, “.. if I haven’t told you already, you’re the best thing that happened to me and I love you with all my heart.”

I don’t know what made his say it .. but I’m glad he did.

Chief went into the bedroom to lay down and I stayed out in the living room with Spaz until about 9pm. I had work the next day and I wanted to try and watch the end of the Sex and the City movie.

I didn’t make it. I got to the part where Miranda tells Carrie something she told Big at their rehersal dinner that she believes made him get cold feet and not want to get married.

Maybe I’ll finish watching it tonight.
