Today was a scheduled day off. My nieces aren’t in school so Mom and I had planned to have them all day and do craft stuff. Then the younger niece got burned when we were at the nail salon and my sister said the girls couldn’t come here. Then her husband wasn’t able to get out of going to a meeting this morning, so they had to be here for a while. Then he decided he’d drop them off at 7:30 along with the fucking dog.
In the time they were here that dog pissed on the carpet 3 times – my niece yelled at me each time I rubbed her nose in it. She jumped up on the little one because they were all on the floor “playing” and the kid fell back and cracked her head on the edge of a wall. I got her up on my lap on the couch and the dog proceeded to get up in her face again. I grabbed the dog and got her off the couch – older niece yelled at me for that, too. Then when I decided that both the canine demon and I needed a “time out,” the older niece informed me that Uncle Josh had burned her sister with a cigarette.
I went outside with the dog and calmed myself. Mom called and I told her what had happened (she was running errands). She said she’d be home shortly and she’d call my niece out on the lie. Josh couldn’t have burned A – he didn’t ever smoke around her that weekend. We try very hard to never smoke around the kids – any of them – because they’re entirely too unpredictable.
Anyway, they’ve since left. My mom loaded them and the fucking dog and took them to meet my brother in law at Costco. I guess what he had really wanted was for my mom to meet him and leave the kids and dog with me. Yeah, don’t think so asshole. I still don’t really feel good and my oldest niece seems on a mission to push buttons lately. Someone would not have come out of that cage match alive.
And, just to keep this all interesting – the brat comes over tomorrow. I’m already primed to deal with her bullshit. This should be super.
