Well, I did everything possible but straight up tell Oz I wouldn’t allow it. Now on top of everything else we have going on, we have a friend coming to stay with us while he gets back on his feet. It’s hard to say no when it’s Oz’s best friend, especially since they met through the military.
Unfortunately, I have a feeling we’re going to butt heads. He has a very different parenting philosophy. He also has the belief homeschooling isn’t a great choice. He was all thrilled to suggest we should move up by hom where the curriculum is provided and the kids would be subjected to yearly standardized testing. He thought that was fantastic. I’m sure anyone reading thos knows how I feel about that. I’m not interested in living with anyone that isn’t a homeschool supporter.
It’s not just that. I also get the picture that he plans on moving his girlfriend and kids into our little trailer. For starters, management would flip. We’re already maxed out in occupancy. Having one long-term guest is hard enough. He’d be introducing a woman we’ve never met, a 1 1/2 year old, and a 2 1/2 year old into the mix. That’s just too much for me. It’s too many small people for one house and our parenting styles are too different. It’s just not going to work even if management wouldn’t flip.
So for a while things are going to be tight and stressful. I’m going to do my best to keep up with what the kids are doing, but I really don’t know how much I’ll be writing. I don’t do well when I feel like other people are invading my home.
