And it's all downhill from there

Well things are going from bad to worse already -- so much for my record of a week straight with no problems. Jackie and Ellen were throwing their new pink tennis balls around the front hall and ended up hitting one of the chandeliers. So Jackie runs into the kitchen and starts begging me to fix it before her dad comes out (from getting ready for their dinner party). So I up on a ladder trying to fix the dumb thing and Jackie's got the door closed and as I'm opening the door to the back hall out comes Jim. He eyes me, then Jackie, then the chandelier. ''What are you doing?" ''Oh just fixing the light, it came unhinged'' ''How?" well crap, how am I supposed to get out of this one without lying? I know that Jackie didn't want me to tell but I was NOT going to cover for her again so I said, the girls were playing. He gets up on the ladder and starts yelling ab out how it's still not right (even though it was); ThEN the lightbulb is out because it got hit and so I went to get another one and wouldn't you know we're out of lightbulbs? So I went back and told him I'd call maintence to which he starts screaming at me about how we're abusing the maintenence men and ''WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU BUY ENOUGH LIGHTBULBS WHEN YOU WENT TO COSTO??" I explained that since they were only 60 watt and Erica had wanted 75 watt she told me to only buy 10, I had and now we were out of them. He was NOT happy and THEN it turned out the chandelier was cracked and now has to be replaced to which Jackie goes ''oh it wasn't like that when I hit the ball." (so of course that mean's I broke it even though it WAS her who did it but I can't just say that she's lying.)

Jim got down told me to put the ladder away and then stormed out of the house. And now it's 12 am and they just got home and I'm hiding in my room hoping they think I'm alseep so I won't have to go out there and explain the receipts. --Although I did leave a note explaining everything so that when I'm gone tomorrow and Monday they'll know. Here's to the morning.. 6 hours away.
