If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing.

And thus begins a new work week. Only five more days of PBJs and Mac&Cheese (chuckle).

The jury is still out on this Scales vs. School thing. I don’t think he’s put any thought into this beyond reading one of my past journal entries and saying, “Oh, yeah! I can go to school and not have to work”…

He does have his G.I. bill which should cover about a year of class, but the current plan as I understand it is to get a different loan for more and use the G.I. bill money to pay it off for a while. Wait till he has to pay out $500 for books which isn’t covered by student loans or the G.I. bill. And has to account for every dollar he spends…

Of course I have no actual idea of what he’s planning as he was missing all weekend again.

I have talked with Jae and we’ve figured we’ll give him to the end of the month to do :something: other than leave the house unlocked when he leaves, the lights on, run the heat all day, make a mess of the kitchen, roll in at o-dark 30 and wake everyone up, ignore his alarm clock for several hours each morning, and generally be a check valve around here. That will have given him 2.5 months to do something to contribute to the house… When someone I know has a 15 year old who can get a job after school and on weekends to help her family out, Scales can damn well too.
