Dad said no to my "step-up" financial plan for this month. He did agree to start in April, though. I will just be patient and wait. He was good to me tonight and didn't get upset.
"Your brother and sister both got to be doctors by listening to me," he told me. "You would be wise to listen to me, too."
"I know," I replied. "I can just be so impetuous sometimes."
"Your mother says you are looking for jobs, as well."
"I get tired of never having any money. It feels degrading."
"Go to vocational rehabilitation and I will support you working through them. Listen to me and you will be okay," Dad told me as he got up to leave.
We joked some about how good a wife Maggie has been as he rubbed her back. Rosa was in my bedroom watching TV during this. She sheepishly came out to see what happened. My father makes her nervous.
"No go," I told her. "You will have to put up with a poor boyfriend for two more months."
Rosa is a sweetheart for putting up with that. I will be dependant upon her for spending cash for awhile. I will pay her back, though.
