On Father’s Day weekend, we went to check out my father-in-law’s property. It looked like pure trash. It had not been cut in nine months because Jill and her husband stole the Snoopy give me the strength to walk away from stupid people without slapping them shirt Apart from…,I will love this tractor. We could not even get to the fishing pond because the grass was taller than my kids. My husband demanded they return the tractor. After a couple of nasty text messages, they returned it. We live out of town. My husband took off work to go cut his daddy’s grass only to find the tractor was completely inoperable. The steering wheel could be completely removed. The mechanic said it had not been cranked in months. It was left under a tree, and the acid from the leaves severely damaged the tractor. It will cost us a grand to fix. My husband demanded an explanation from Jill. As a result, Jill’s husband called my husband and told him to leave Jill alone. Then he threatened him with physical violence. The shit totally hit the fan, and Jill has caused a shit storm of drama that has now gotten to a dangerous level. I am done with Jill. What’s sad is that we still have to have some sort of contact with her until probate is done. She texted my husband the other day saying she was pre-approved for a loan to buy him out. We know this is another lie. What bank would give her a loan when she has no job? She said she would send the paperwork to the probate attorney. Of course that hasn’t happened, and it’s been three weeks since she sent that text. I don’t know what’s up her sleeve next, but I know she is plotting and planning to take that land out from under us. If you are the praying kind, we could sure use some prayers. Thanks for listening! I think schools definitely should max out homework for 1 hour, TOTAL. If they can’t get all their work done in school, esp. in elementary school level, then they should really look into their curriculum and see why. I sub for mostly elementary classes in the district, and each class is about 1 hour long, which is pretty long for young children. We spend about 10–15 minutes for lessons, then the students would work on their own. I can usually give them a 10-min break before the next subject. Each day we also have enough time for reading together or by themselves. Our district is ranks very high in the state, and I can see why.
