Pat is getting to see more of his daughter. It is frustrating for him. He sees her making serious mistakes and cannot do anything about it. She is young, early 20's, with 2 kids and out on her own for the first time. Big mistake #1 that she does not see is she has a roommate that does not have a job and has several kids of her own, no welfare check or child support either! Big mistake #2, she is in love with a guy she met through her roommate that is in prison, (roommate's brother) Big mistake #3 she changes jobs and quit her other job 2 weeks BEFORE starting new job. She is letting other people use her phone and they ran her out of minutes AND ran up her phone bill. She is letting other people drive her car while she was at work, now it is broke. She received a LARGE tax refund and is broke, hocked her car and her rings and borrowed money from us for food this week. Pa told her no more. She can come to the farm and I will feed her, she can move in but NOT the "friends". She does not see they are only using her. The roommate claims to have been looking for a job for over 6 months, yet Pat's daughter found a job in less than a week. This child was never taught how to survive on her own. It will take hitting bottom for her to see that she is being used. As for this marriage, I pray that she waits(plans are for next week!) until he gets out. Then I pray she waits for a long time! I fear for her. She is in for big problems.
Having a bit of trouble typing this as I have a lump on my shoulder. Buddy decided he wanted to watch what I was doing and climbed on the back of the chair and watched me type.
Brook got her hair cut. It sure is short! She wanted it cut this way. I think she looks cute But I really think it will look cuter AFTER it has grown out some.
