She doesn't get it

not even a little bit. K doesn't have kids of her own, how could she you read the last post about the animals so where would a kid be in all that??? But I'm getting off topic. I take S over to her house mainly because the walk there and back is good exercise and she has plenty of space outside for her to play in. But that's it. I would never go to dinner and leave her with her for a couple of hours that is just out of the question. Especially after yesterday.

A couple of days ago we went to Walmart and she bought a bunch of stuff for S to use at her house, glue, paper, stuff like that. Well when I left they were playing outside. It was a little windy but not as bad as at my house since i leave right at the base of a mt. Fine, everything is fine, so I walk all the way home and get the car and come back for her. I called to tell her that i was on the way so they can clean up whatever they were playing with, you give her a warning. Well I get there and they are coloring and gluing pom poms to paper, it was all very cute.......until i saw that there was a heart drawn on her pants.. IN GLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes that's what I said, in glue. And then something was drawn on her back pocket to. I was trying really hard not to get upset but just because it says it's washable does not mean that you can put tit on anything. I left, with S, and did what I needed to do came home and washed her pants, twice. When I talked to her later online, she asked me about ti and I told her that it finally came out. She got upset because "it says it's washable, that's just like a bait and switch. I'm going to write them a letter and tell them they can't mislabeled and mislead people like that".

me "No K, it's not meant for fabric, and it is washable.... from your hands"

K "Well that's just wrong, they shouldn't do that"

K "the girls and I used body paints on our clothes and skin but, it washed out easily..."

me "because body paint is meant to wash off of just about anything, not the same for glue or crayons"

K "WELL.... they should NOT say washable then!"

I could go on wit the conversation but I think you get the point. How many different ways can I say not to do that? I finally just told her not to do it. It's meant for paper, pom poms and stuff like that. Maybe it's just me but that is just stupid on her part. Kid or not, if I was watching someone else child and they got something on their pants be it crayon, glue, stickers, whatever, I would try to take it off not get made at the company that made it because it didn't wash out.

Ok so K has done it again. She is a big advocate for animals right which is fine but she needs to control it. She already has a pit bull of her own, 2 hairless dogs, and 2 cats. Well of course when you have a male/female cat your bound to get kittens right? right. So now there are 3 cats. Then she got another male kitten that was about 4 weeks old so now there are 4 cats, but wait...it gets better. well the female went in heat again and just had kittens......again!!! So now there are 6 cats in the house along with 2 puppies and a pit bull. Then there is mother, who has a ranch outside of town. She has sheep and dogs (that's where K got the dogs from)and we've been out there quite a few times. Well the herd is pregnant and have been having babies for the past month, since the beginning of December. It's been great for S but....can you tell where I'm going with this? Yes, now she has lambs. The mothers have "abandoned" them so she says. I haven't been there to witness it so I can't say what is going on there. So let's go back to the animal count.
1 Pit Bull
2 Hairless puppies
6 cats
2 lambs
3 fish (yeah sorry about not mentioning that one sooner)

Ok so now that I've given you a little bit of a background let me get to what has happened today. There is a ranch outside of town, I know a lot of ranch's around here, that we've been to this past week. Now I don't know a whole lot about horses, never owned one so what would I know if an animal is underfed? Oh I know maybe because I can see their ribs!!!!!!! Now she's had a horse, that much I know what but what happened with it, I don't know. But here's my thing. We drove by it and she was going on and on about how the horses are just so skinny and the person is doing a horrible job taking care of them and that she couldn't believe that I would go to a place like that. She knew that we had just been there a couple of days ago so why keep going? We walked around the ranch, feed the horses, saw everything that was there.
She didn't hid anything, and was very friendly, the lady at the ranch. She was very nice. There were lost of horses there, about 10, and a bunch of burros to. None of them were really shy, not anymore then I would expect if 3 kids came screaming to the fence, lol. And I told K about this. Told her that none of the animals looked sick, hungry, etc. And she says, well they must have put them away. That pissed me off. I was very tempted to pull the car over, yank her out and make her go look at the horses. Don't tell me what I saw and what is going on. I told her that she really can't judge what other people are doing at their places unless she goes out there. Was I wrong for saying that? I don't think so.

She complains about the neighborhood dog and messes with her 3 dogs, and even gone so far as to jump the fence and mount the female puppy. Don't tell me about it, go say something to the guy (she sees him every morning let the dog out) or call animal control or the cops. Make a complaint. Do something about it but quit complaining to me about it when you don't want to hear what I have to say. It's just dumb.
