The father is home at night. He works everyday except for Sunday. She works Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night. She sleeps Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday day.

When I'm with Lily, no one is around. My aunt is sleeping up stairs, and my uncle is at work.

Sure you can. But I'm also just as sure you won't.

Besides, why do their money problems translate into crappy wages for you? It's hardly your fault they bought a house with a mold problem.

Sounds to me like they cheapied out on getting an inspection done before they bought the house, because a mold issue would have been spotted during a home inspection.

Speed Racer: Don't get me wrong, I love my aunt a lot. I'm happy that you are agreeing with me, that my aunt is in fact taking adavantage of me. But you seem to be a little too harsh. They did get a home inspection done. They have a good case, and the lawyer is going to be sueing a lot of parties.

Well she wants you to have a car by next year? So tell her you're going to spend the money you get now how you like. Tell her she can give you better wages and the remainder (or a portion of it) would go toward a car. Even if she paid you double that'd still be small change. If you're really so stubborn about babysitting for them keep doing it, although, I don't think it'd be worth it. I'd quit. But I do understand that family is family. But since you're doing her a huge favor, she could do quite a bit better by you, as far as I'm concerned.

Do what you want with your money. But I say that you need to have a talk with your aunt she has no right to tell you what to do with the money she's paying you to babysit an its your choice.
Id do the same thing if I were u

When she wakes up, I'm going to tell her that I'm taking horse back riding lessons. And yay! I'm emailing the stable tonight. I'll be taking horse riding lessons very soon!

She wants that you'll use your money for a car so you could be able to come and babysit your cousin..? (tho I sure understand you can drive a lot more with that car besides babysitting). After you've earned that little money from her with that many hours and after she has called your hobby stupid?

Nada, requires like that wouldn't work with me, I think it's a little too much. I agree with Farmpony.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
