Well, we moved.. So far so.. ok, not so good. The move itself was fine. It was kind of nice to move from such a HUGE house to something more manageable. IF she'd only help MANAGE it. :\ It's soo small, anything out of place and it looks like a cluttered mess. I'm ready to rip her hair out (what's left of it) and sit on her, and honestly I don't even know what to do anymore. She won't listen. She pretends to, and says "Ok, Mom, got it".. blah blah blah. Whatever. Anyway, seems I wasn't all that smart moving DOWNSTAIRS. After living in the house, (2 stories) and my knees getting worse, I figured downstairs is perfect. Until the lelefants moved in above me. WHO DOES LAUNDRY AT 4AM!?!?! Or HAND washes dishes at 1am?! Someone up there is really into some kind of twerkin, zumba, hip hop, stomponthedamnfloor dancin shit, and it SUCKS. I have tuned much of it out (having kids makes that easier) but she constantly complains about them. And my poor Mojo, if they drop something up there, Mo instantly jumps up and looks around like some stealth FBI dog or something. She's gonna die of a heart attack. She's done SOO good with being potty trained, she holds everything until we get home and then we take her out and she's good. Sometimes tho she'll wake me up at 2am to go out, but it's cool because she's not shit in the house or anything for 2 weeks so far! It is SOOO hard not having ALL my dogs, I won't go into it, because it still hurts too damn much... So, I'm looking into spending the extra $300 or so that I wanted to SAVE every month, and moving to the 2 br 2 car garage. Bottom floor is the garage and washer / dryer. Middle is kitchen, dining, living room, her room, bathroom and walk in closet, and MY room is the top (QUIET) with the loft and my bathroom and bigger walk in closet. I say I am HOPING to do this. I've been there 2 weeks, and it's just too small, and the lelefants will drive me mad. I talked to the leasing office and now just waiting to hear what the mucky mucks say about it. Cross your fingers!!
Tomorrow is back to court. Yay.. (laced heavily with sarcasm).
We went last month, where I turned in pages and pages of everything going on etc... and he showed up with no lawyer. Seems he got dropped. Quelle Horreur. NOT! It was bound to happen. Anyway, seeing as he had no lawyer he played stupid and said he didn't know HOW to turn in the requested papers that he needed (with over a month to FIND HELP, WHATEVER LOSER). So the "sub" judge that day decided that we needed to go back to mediation and that the kid needed to as well, and let's all meet back "tomorrow". I put in my papers for her to see him every other Saturday 8 am - 8 pm. That's it. Since she HASN'T seen him since last year, she's on HONOR ROLL. She's not stressed about him, she concentrates on her homework and DOES IT etc... I see no need for week day visits just so he can yell at her... again. Now, after she went to her mediation and told me what she said to the lady, I don't THINK he'll actually get any because even when he sent the sheriff to my house, to make her go see him, the sheriff said "We can't make her go, you have a good night" and left. So... we'll see what they say.
Found out a good friend of mine is going to be divorcing. He left her, no reason why nothing. Just "I'm done". I personally can understand that, because that was me when I left. I was DONE. Seems he's lied and there is someone else, after repeatedly denying it. Long story short, caught him. And what's worse, it's a friend of Hers. :'( So, spending time with her, doing what I can to be supportive. And I have court tomorrow for my own crap. Easter is next weekend, and we were invited to go the Havafew for it. (Not taking the boat out tho). We decided to go (yesterday) and today I thought about it, they will be gone, so bug and I can be home this weekend and NOT have to do anything for anyone. We can go to the community breakfast with the Easter Bunny and just do "our thing" and talk and get back to some kind of "normal", together. Whatever that is.
Sometimes you don't realize you're actually drowning when you are trying to be everyone else's anchor
