devil girl

(no subject)

I'm upstairs now, so the keyboard is working properly. Thankfully. I didn't get as much studying done as I wanted, but I ended at 16 hrs 26 minutes. I really need to get cracking on this - and I don't think others in the house understand that. I've tried expressing it..but maybe I'm just not as clear as I think I'm being.
Grandma created some drama over the last couple days. She called Cheryl to complain about the house. Of course, this meant that they came over today to check on things. Before they came over, grandma was apologizing to mom and saying that she doesn't think before she speaks and that she doesn't want Cheryl and Bill involved in 'our' business. Sure grandma...but news flash...you can't have it both ways.
The visit was more pleasant than I thought, really. They didn't hound mom or I too much. The kitchen was clean today (thankfully), and there were some toys on the living room floor, and some clothes on the couch. All in all, not too bad. I still have to put the clothes away...I guess its being left up to me. I get tired of listening to her complain. Nothing is ever good enough..its -always- a mess, even when its not. Same shit I grew up with... "this isn't how I do it, it isn't good enough". Oh yeah, heaven forbid its done -right-...that doesn't happen either. *gnashes teeth*

At any rate, I'm upstairs, with a working keyboard. I'm done studying for the night, Jae's stopped crying...and I have the bed to myself when I choose to sleep. (D's in mom's room with Garrett). Things are looking better....

Progress report

I'm almost done with Unit 4. The sections are getting smaller and easier to digest. This makes things easier to remember. So far, I have 17 hours and 41 minutes in. I'm chipping away at that 60 hours...now, if only I could take bigger chips *smirks*
