Sorry no pretty pics or tags tonight. Today has been an all around bad news day. I take Rebecca to school and the teacher tells me friday is her last day as a teacher there. They transferred 3 teachers to a worse school then this one and she was one of them. All 3 teachers being white. I have been at this school since October and let me tell you racism and kissing ass is a big time thing there. It's sickening. I actually heard one of the school administraters who is black tell a lady from the office who is also black, "Welcome to our little piece of Blackadelphia". Sickening isn't it? These 3 teachers are good teachers. They care about their students. Rebecca's teacher was in tears this morning telling me what they have done with her position there. I told her she is a good teacher with a big heart. Over the summer get her certification for the New Jersey school system and get her resume out there. Get the hell out of Philadelphia school system, because she is too good for this place. I am so sick of this fricken city and there school system. I have made up my mind. When we buy the house, it'll be in New Jersey. Ok, now the second bout of bad news. Emma calls me tonight. She says our dear friend Joe, who lives downstairs from us and we have been friends with for over 20 years caalls her today. Out of the blue he says, he ain't doing nothing up here in this apartment until we move. That the carpet is filthy. Umm excuse me. I own a steem cleaner and not only have I cleaned the carpets, but Jim did all the carpets last week. And that he can't use his airconditioner because we use ours and he doesn't want the bill to go up. Then he complains about the gas bill. Umm hello, I don't control what little heat he turns on in the winter, I don't have a gas stove, I don't have a gas dryer, HE DOES!!!!!!! We've been cooking on the grill to conserve the electric. I know why he is being this way. He ways laid off last week, due to not wanting to take a complete physical and blood test for a position at a better company. Now he has that 1100.00 car payment with full coverage insurance to pay for, a second mortage on the house and that big screen tv and now he goes and buys a 1000.00 computer system. It's not my fault his eyes are bigger then his wallet.
He wanted to go to the mountains this past weekend. Umm it was Father's Day and Emma had us over her house for a little cookout. Jim said to Joe, Cindy wants me to spend time with the kids sundaay. Joe tells Jim why don't you just throw her out, give her the kid and 90.00 week childsupport, that way you can go and do as you want. After all I have done for him, taking care of his mom when he had to work and his brothers and sister weren't around, this is what he tells Jim? Some fricken friend he is huh? Rebecca isn't allowed downstairs anymore because she got sick on his carpet and it stained it. Well, I asked him if he wanted me to use my steam cleaner on it, he said no. Plus the dumbass has white carpet. He's the idiot who fed my child hotdogs and chocolate milk right after she got over the flu.
As soon as my son in law gives me the ok, I am house hunting.
My birthday was nice. The teacher gave me a pretty card and 100.00, Emma and Dan bought me a new microwave, Jims parents sent me 25.00. Jim bought me 5.00 in powerball tickets, I LOST, LOL. And I got lots of ecards from all of you which I thank you so very much for. A beautiful card from LJ and one from my hairdresser Rick. We had hotdogs, BBQ Chicken, salad and cake.
There is 3 days of school left. This weekend I will make aan entry and post pics of my birthday and Rebecca's kindergarten graduation. I made video's. I just have to get them on an uncut video like you all do in your journal. I have no idea how, but I will try. I guess that is about it. I just needed to vent I hope I didn't offend anyone with what is going on at the school.
LOVE TO ALL..................CINDY
