I'm in tears right now...I don't understand. Everything has come to a head...some of you have asked what the 'family problems' were that made me move back home 2 months ago. Well, after this post, http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?t=112314 and everything that happened, my dad joined the army. He's been in basic for 6 weeks or so and is now home for a christmas break. He is doing infantry, and his graduate date is in march. He got his assignment-Washington state. No big deal, right, he's supposed to be assigned there for 4 years and somewhere in there go to Iraq for a year.
He remarried my mom before he left, so she could get the army benefits (they were previously divorced). Well I guess they are completely back together now, because apparantly we are all supposed to move to washington. She basically wants to force me to come, and as it stands I can't afford to live on my own. I was even thinking of using my florida scholarship and going back to school next year...I'm pretty upset at that, any other state I might be alright with, but washington of all of them...I've moved SO much in my life, between MA and FL and ME, I don't want to move again.
But, no matter my feelings on THAT issue, I was still considering it. Then I said well, I guess we'll have to figure out a way to ship 7 dogs to WA. No one said anything...they said we will be renting and won't bring 7 dogs. They said 2, maybe 3. What?!?!?! I am NOT getting rid of my dogs! Plus I won't be able to have a horse until we move back, I'll have to return or sell Ava, and get rid of my 'tiel and I didn't ask about the cats. My mom's always accused me of loving the dogs more than I love my own family...and maybe its true...but I can't just rehome all my dogs. My mom ALREADY asked me to find a home for her dog, star, because she can't do it herself. It's only been 3 days since we found out where he is being stationed! And to follow the guy that has screwed her over about 10 times across the country, is ridiculous. I have no respect for him.
I'm so upset...I'm going to have to see if I can find a place to live or someone to live with that will let me have my dogs and my cat. I've had so much drama in my life lately I don't know what to do.
