I'm supposed to do me & Rich's taxes today, but I'm not sure what time. He was supposed to come over yesterday but when I stopped over at 6:30 last night I learned he hadn't been grocery shopping, just buying stuff every day to eat for dinner. They hadn't eaten and didn't have anything in the house to cook at that point and Rich & I got into it bigtime. I told him it was too late, he'd have to go grocery shopping and feed the kids first.
Talking with Jesi, I learned he hasn't been grocery shopping in weeks and her & Kaleb are home all day without anything to make for lunch. I'm furious. I give him money to contribute toward groceries, as well as pay his car insurance, cell phone, health insurance, and daycare for Conner before/after school. I am tempted to just give the cash to Jesi and take her with me when I go grocery shopping, since she's the one that usually makes dinner anyway, but it really shouldn't be up to her to take care of her dad like that. She's willing, even eager, because it will be a relief for her to have food in the house. But still, I'm really hung up on her playing the caretaker roll. Rich needs to step it up and take care of his kids.
I ended up bringing Conner to my house. I was going to feed him, but he said he wasn't hungry and that his belly felt weird. He did feel feverish, but denied actually feeling sick. He woke me up around 4:30 because he'd thrown up. My poor little guy.
