Next I would have gone to Las Vegas. I would have gone back to where I consider home. I would have bought a 5 to 10 million dollar home. I would not want the size of the house as much as the land. I want LOTS of space for the kids to roam and play. That is SO much money I have no idea what kind of house that would even buy in Vegas. I would think the 5 million dollar house would cover all I need with the space and a pool (for fun and therapy). I would also want to get some sort of small house near my parents in Alabama so we had a place to stay when we went to visit. I would pay off my parent's home. I would also offer my grandmother a place to stay anywhere she wished. She is all most 80 and it would be nice to give her somewhere that is nice AND where she wants to live. I would give my in-laws money to pay them back form all their help and I would even give John some money so he could pay off his bills and buy a car. I would set up a trust for Margaret, James and Joseph. Margaret and James I would set up with 10 million and Joseph with 20 million. I would be able to write an advance directive for Joseph (and Margaret too for right now) to make sure they will be able to be looked after and have a nice life after I am gone. I would save 30 million and pay for all the things I want to do for me and the children (care givers, doctors, therapy, other medical and anything else they need). That is 70 million. Plus the 12 million from earlier and I still have about FIFTY MILLION left to spend!!! It would be SO great to help out all the nice people who have helped me along the way and then to be able to give to others. I know I would give money to all my friends. They are all, sadly, as broke as I am. It would be nice to pay off their homes, buy them equipment they need for their children or do one of the many other things I know they need. I would LOVE to help people in a thoughtful and personal way. I could go back and do one of my FAVORITE things in the world to do... random acts of kindness to people who have NO idea it is coming.

I hang up with the fire department. They were there in five minutes. By then Bailey was starting to come around a little. The firemen (yes, they were cute!) were asking her a lot of questions and helped load her into an ambulance that took her to the hospital. James was VERY concerned for Bailey. He kept telling me we had to go and get her. I said we had to wait until she called and then we would get her. At three-ish in the afternoon Bailey called and asked if I would take her over to the local urgent care so she could get pain medicine to stop the migraine. I said sure. Earlier in the week Bailey and the children made letters to Santa. I said I wanted to go to the post office and send off the letters to Santa and then I would stop and get her something to drink before taking her to urgent care. She said ok.

After getting something to drink I took Bailey to Urgent Care. She wanted to take James with her for company. Huh? Really? Okay! LOL James is really good on his own so I figured he would behave for her. Joseph, Margaret and I went home. I let them play outside and I tried to get some things picked up. As I am starting to write in the blog Bill arrives home. After he comes home I call Bailey to check up on her and to try and give her grandfather information. He has me talk to him for a bit about making meals. He said he was about to be paid and he was going to buy groceries. He was then going to cook. He was asking what I like. To be honest I HIGHLY doubt there is anything they would eat that I would not eat too. It would be me and the children who would eat "weird" stuff like Indian food. LOL I LOVE all sorts of things and so do the children. The biggest things we talked about was buying food specifically for meals and getting fresh fruits and vegetables.

I am rather upset with my case worker, Chris, from the DDD. I had explained to him WHY I did that. I had said James could pull down a baby gate. I said OVER AND OVER again how they were a danger. They had issues with safety and wandering. OMG! So now I am thinking about getting a copy of the report if I can. I want to know what was said. Then I think I may file a complaint. At the very least I will be switching case workers! Anyone have any advice here? I have to say I am feeling rather betrayed. Plus if anyone else have any ideas on keeping them safe that is better than the chain locks I would be happy to hear the ideas!

John whines to me about not having enough money to come and see them but he has enough time to nap, workout, have no children, only one job and no room mates. So of course he could not have the time to do anything to earn any extra money to come and see them. Heck, a room mate does not even involve a lot of effort on his part and would save him at LEAST $300 a month! Got to leave that room open though for the children (who may be there for two months during the summer...what about them staying in HIS room?) UGH! I am sure part of the reason I am frustrated is that I have little to no time to get what *I* need done for me OR the children! I am tired! Can I get some respite now?
