On Monday my washing machine broke. I called my babysitter, and went to pick up a new one.
When I got home a police car was just pulling up. DD had ran out the front door.( The front doot that I had locked when I left and warned the sitter not to let DD out.) She made it to a gas station a mile away.
Needles to say that sitter has been fired.
My house was a mess that day. It had been reasonably clean the week before, but I suffer from depression and stuff had piled up.
They were going to take my kids, but DD is non verbal, autistic, and an elopement risk. She didn't get away while in my care, but while in the care of a (in hindsight) incapable sitter. So instead of moving the kids they sent workers into my house to watch us. I was given 48hrs to get the house into acceptable condition, and I made it with time to spare. The 24/7 supervision has been lifted, but I know they will be back soon. They will help me apply for disability and SSI for DD.
I've had one hell of a bad week.
The icing on the cake? The washer I went to fetch from my brother's house doesn't work either!!!
