The Kids are Away

Cory is down the street practicing his band music with his friend Pam. We have a hard time getting him to practice on his own, but the two of them really seem to enjoy practicing together. Of course, there's the added benefit of Pam's cat, so Cory enjoys going there. The kids keep begging us for a cat, but we really don't want any more animals. They are more trouble than they are worth.

Beth is at Cristina's. She called a few times trying to figure out if the two of them could go to a movie and what car they could take and how they would pay for gas. Her dad is tired of her always wanting to go places and no one is paying for the gas. Once she actually starts getting paid, she should have gas money. The girls ended up staying home, because Cristina couldn't go after all. There are some cats over there, too. Beth was trying to convince us at dinner that she should be allowed to adopt one of their new kittens. She promised to pay for everything and take care of it and everything or we could get rid of it. Still, we really don't want any animals in the house.

So, the kids are away - and we don't even get to enjoy it. Jeffrey's on the phone with Linksys getting more and more frustrated all the time. Customer service? Yeah. Right.
