March 28, 2012 Wednesday Afternoon

Went out for tacos last night for supper. At the restaurant we got into a conversation about Tony's looser brother, who is on work release, working for Tony again. He showed up last Tuesday. We were talking about the fact that Tony reports his hours, and pays him to work from 8 AM to 5 PM, so he can be out of jail. Well, his brother takes a bus to and from work and arrives about 9 AM and leaves at 4:30 PM to get the bus home. I asked why he was not paying him from 9 AM to 4:30 PM and and argument started. First Tony used the bus as an excuse to pay him those times. When I tried to explain to Tony the reason he takes the bus is because of his own drunk driving 5 times, Tony kept saying, 'he is my brother'. I kept telling him he is not our responsibility and it is once again bullshit to pay someone for hours they don't work. Tony is trying to give his brother a break and help, but I see it as coming out of our pocket. Plus, it is just bullshit. If he works from 9 to 4:30, he should get paid from that time not an hour and a half more for not working. It just doesn't make sense and pisses the hell out of me. Tony did tell his brother that this is temporary and as of May 1st he better have a different job because he will not be welcome here after May 1st as an employee. Yah right, stay tuned. Want to bet come May his brother is still working for him. He is to fricken lazy to go out and find a different job, much less one that might require him to actually work for his pay. Dinner was quite after that and we ate and came home. Spent the night watching Dancing With The Stars and Body of Proof before going to bed.

Got up this morning at 6:30 AM. Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot. Saw an ad for a pillow chair at Menard's that would be great for the dogs, $19.99 after rebate. Left the house around 9 AM and went to Menard's and bought the chair, some bird food and some Algae control for the pond. Came home and after putting the chair together left again to go grocery shopping. Ended up spending more than I would have imagined for very little groceries. Took a nap with the dogs. Stella needed to snuggle next to me so tight. When we got up I noticed why. She has an ear infection and has scratched it bloody. Poor thing. Cleaned it out and put ear medicine in the ear. Will have to keep an eye on it for the next couple days. Should have known something was up when she needed to snuggle so close during nap time. Now I just have to keep Bo from licking the medicine out of the ear. Kali loves her new chair. I put it right next to the computer desk and she is sleeping away right next to me. I think she claimed the chair. Making hamburger helper and a salad for supper tonight. Will spend the night watching American Idol. Was in the 60s today. Warm enough for me and still way above the normal. Tomorrow a cold front comes through for the day in it is to be in the 40s. Then back to the 60s and 70s for the weekend. This is what weather is like living near Lake Michigan. Depending on what direction the wind is coming from has a direct effect on the temperature being so close to the lake like we are.
