Wish me luck!

In the beginning of the summer I promised my aunt that I would take her daughters for the weekend. There are 3 of them, 16 and the twins are 14. I love these girls like they are my own and I try to spoil them as much as possible because their father is a piece of shit. Seriously, I don’t hate anyone, but this man is ridiculous. He has “medical problems” and hasn’t worked in the past 4 years, forcing my aunt to work 3 jobs simultaneously just so they can make their mortgage payments. While he stays at home sleeping all day and all night. She barely has enough money to go grocery shopping. My mother and me do whatever we can to help out those girls, because they don’t deserve to have a father like that. I may not have a relationship with my dad anymore, but at least when he was still married to my mom he was a good person. He was never disrespectful and could never fathom staying at home and not working to support his family. Another thing I hate is how he doesn’t realize what amazing kids he has. They are the most well behaved teenagers you have ever seen and he thinks they are terrible. He once grounded one of them for a week because she took a piece of computer paper without asking. All she was allowed for the week was read the bible. I have never been grounded in my entire life and I have done stuff that is much worse!

Anyway, before this turns into a rant about this man, I am finally taking the girls for the weekend. I will pick them up after work today and have them until either Saturday night or Sunday. I just hope I can find enough stuff to do to entertain them. They might also bring one of their friends with them so that should be interesting. This girl is over their house every day and is basically their other sister, but it will be weird that she is staying at my house. As long as her mother is okay with it, it should be fine. I just don’t want them to get bored with me or think I’m really lame. I mean they are at that age where you are supposed to hate everything and you constantly talk about how bored you are. I have a couple of ideas of what to do with them; lets just hope they like it! Anyway wish me luck! Have a great weekend!
