Checking in……

5 May

Well hi there!

Pardon my disappearance.  Work has gotten progressively more demanding and the life of a single mom doesn’t give much spare time.  I’m happy to say Dick is still out on his own.  He has no job and no income but has managed to find a girlfriend with steady work.  He is getting food stamps and is pursuing disability.  Though I’m better off without him the fact he’s now trying to file for disability is a kick in the teeth as he wouldn’t do it for our family.  He’s blown up the car I gave him and lives 30 minutes away so he doesn’t see the boys as often as they would like. 

My work has been a struggle.  My co workers go from catty to sweet minute by minute.  There are several government agencies looking into our industry and as a result we are changing all the time.  Our dealer customers are more and more demanding every day and will use anything to get what they want.  I want out but I’m not sure how to make this kind of money with these hours and flexibility so I’m feeling stuck.  As the sole provider even a small pay cut could be very challenging. 

My sweet Tom can’t wait to be here to help me.  He is trapped in his home town.  His ex-wife (not current wife) has decided to ask the courts to re-look at their child support agreement.  He has never missed an agreed upon payment and has gone above and beyond to provide for his daughter however the child support agreement has not been set up through the court system and years ago they worked out a verbal change.  She is reneging and it’s turning out to be costly.  He does have very low cost legal representation.  His attorney is his current wife’s cousin.  These two things have him laying low and waiting before making a move. 

He is coming to visit in a week and a half.  Next week is my youngest sons 4th birthday and in June my parents, the kids and I are taking a family trip to Disney land!  There’s a lot to look forward to and plan for.  I’m excited and exhausted.  However I miss posting.  Only time will tell if I can get back into the grove of my little life documentation project.

Missed you guys!

I hope I can work on catching up on all the blogs I’ve missed.  Hope you are well out there in the world.

    This is wonderful! There were many hurts along the way, and challenges, but you made a better world! That is just – wow. I am so happy for you. You are amazing. You did it all yourself. You gave magic back into your life.

    You and I wrote to each other, around a year ago. I did not know what your life would be. There was such scary potential for it to be very, very bad. I was so worried about you. Now, look at you! I am so happy for you.

    You did it!

    *big, big, big hugs*
