Good News!

Brittany is officially staying where she belongs... with us! Brittany called her mom today to tell her how she felt and what she wanted to do and although Brittany didn't say much(because her mother pretty much yelled at her the whole damn time) but in the end we got what we wanted to hear. So we should be getting a letter shortly giving Chris permission to have Brittany here with us. Chris and Brittany plan on going next weekend to retrieve the rest of Brittany's belongings.

We also celebrated by buying Brittany a new cell phone because her mother told her she would be shutting off the one she has now, and also taking her off the medical insurance, so... Chris will be adding her on his asap. Although I am truly disappointed in the way her mother behaved I am glad she behaved that way because now her daughter sees her for what she truly is.

Now we have to tackle the girls room to make it more livable for two people. It's somewhat cramped and furniture needs to be moved around and some taken out of the room completely. I would like to paint the bottom half where there is a border that also needs to be removed. Since the top half of the room is pink and Brittany is by no means into pink, we are going to paint the bottom half blue(which is her favorite color) and put some type of chair rail to separate the colors. I will post a picture of how it is now soon and maybe I could get some of your ideas on how to make it more compatible for two totally different tastes.

Her mother sounds like a real piece of work. No wonder the girl prefers to live with you! I'm sure she'll be much happier.

Ummm, yeah, no help here, except maybe building a wall in the middle of the room??? Just thinking of when me and my sister had to share a room....not good.

lattegirl- Piece of work is a nice comment for her mother what she is I cannot say because I am the better one:) Brittany is a joy to have around.

humincat - For the most part they have adjusted well to sharing the room. Katie is real good about not touching things that aren't hers. She is just happy to have her sister live with us.
