We ended up talking out on the porch after that, about work, I think, ending in me saying that I'd probably see him tomorrow when I walked up to get my pay stub, but at this moment, I don't think I will be, as partially suspected yesterday. This week, I wanted to see how much I would be getting paid as soon as possible, because I had my eye on a commission auction that cost a fair bit, but sure enough, between getting home last night and seeing George off again at the front door, somebody else bought it. Although now I have my eye on another one, for but a quarter of the price of the first, but I still need to see how much I'm getting paid, because this is the first pay of September, and most of it will be going to Dad. And Mom, maybe, because if at all possible, I'd like to give her grocery money this week, instead of up on the 23rd. And then I have other concerns involving them now too. Just before going to bed last night, I noticed a note taped to the wall outside my door saying that they were interested in using the internet again (obviously to talk to Adam without having to go through Naomi), and to "let them know when I was available". Sarcasm aside, what will that entail? Creating a new profile on the computer downstairs, most likely without a password, lowering the resolution to something they can read, and placing all of two icons on the desktop, one with the title "Internet", and the other "Chat". Then set Firefox's homepage to be Facebook as well, since otherwise they'll probably end up joining that group of people who were typing "Facebook" into Google and not realizing the site they wound up on was in fact not the site they wanted to be at. Or at least I think that's how it went. I read about the whole debacle before, but the details are somewhat hazy now.
I have a feeling Dad should be home now though, so I'm off to check if he his, and to think further about whether or not I should ask them for $10 a month to pay for the internet as well now. Surely they won't be using it nearly enough to justify doing so, but even having some babysitting jobs now, I don't think Naomi would be terribly pleased to be required to give me $20 instead, and I'm not about to start paying for the service entirely by myself, unless I give both her and Adam the money back that they've paid me thus far, regaining complete and utter control of how it's used in the process. Yeah, the account's in my name, and yeah, the money is taken from my Visa each month to pay for it, but they've still given me close to $100 each now, which would have to be repaid before I could do anything. But those are mostly irrelevant ramblings. I have things to do, and after that, more emails to respond to up here, so I'm off to get started. It shouldn't take too long, but that all depends on how much they want to do~
