Yesterday Scott spent the majority of the day at his uncle’s trying to get his truck fixed. His aunt’s car has no insurance or tag so he is trying to get the truck working so they don’t get hit with a bunch of tickets. His uncle is not doing too well right now. He went in the hospital 2 weeks ago for detox. He was on alcohol, prescription drugs and even some cocaine. His aunt’s insurance wouldn’t cover anything more in the hosptial so he had leave after 11 days and he’s not doing too well at home. They can’t find him anywhere to go. There is one place he can go and live but that is after he is through with detox. No one in the family has been through this before so no one really knows what to expect or do. His uncle seems ready to go wherever so I hope they find him some place while he’s willing. No one had any clue it had gotten so bad.
Mom, Dad and Heather are headed up to Maryland to work on their house. I want to go but I need to work and me and Scott’s and Emma’s rooms are not set up yet. We are headed up next month and I can’t wait. I have a new cousin and I want everyone to see Emma. They haven’t seen her since Christmas. She is so much bigger now!
We are supposed to go out on a boat ride with an older couple from our church this evening. I really need to be home but I’m not sure I can convince Scott of not going. He has a lot of respect for this gentleman (so do I) and I don’t know if he could call him and back out. To be honest, I’m also a little nervous about taking Emma on a boat. I have no clue if she’ll like it or not. I would hate for her to be scared and have to turn right around.
I think Emma knows two, maybe three colors now. Blue she knows the best, then red, then green. I think she knows them so well because of her legos. I try to point out the colors as I’m handing them to her.
