Vacation over... Not a planned one, but one none the less. Now my time is up. Sarah is ready to start school again. I hope tomorrow goes alright. We had a little bit of a warm up today. Ice melted off the house. I need to get out there with a ladder and a caulking gun. I saw several spots on the exterior of the trailer where ice forms. Not only off the roof, but holes in the aluminum on the sides. I find myself more like my parents every day trying to save a buck. Why turn up the heat, put on a sweater! I know the value of a dollar earned. My son complains because I make him do chores. I made him an offer. I told him he can quit school and go get a job and I will sit home and play video games all day instead! I want him to get a part time job this summer at least. Maybe working at Price Chopper store as a bagger or something. He needs to learn responsibility. He will be 17 in August! A senior next year in school! Then its the real world for him. I try teaching him life skills but then he acts like a baby. The stove will burn him, germs will get on him etc... he sure is a prima donna sometimes. He better learn this stuff or find someone that wants a big baby to take care of... His butt will be going to live at Daddies!
