The good - DH got an additional $1700 in CS deposited in the bank yesterday. You guys know that he got a chunk a few months back, but he didn't see anything else so we assumed that the Beast had gotten super pissed at CompanyThatBoughtHerCompany and perhaps had quit. Now we think that she has probably restructured her contract with them so that BeastCorp (you know, the entity that was supposedly she had to close, poor Beast) invoices CompanyThatBoughtHerCompany on a monthly basis. She likely thought that this would get her out of the Withholding Order. But, nope, big chunk came yesterday. Now she is only in arrears to the tune of a little over $2K/
The bad - I had to take my mom in today for a biopsy of some lumps on the orbital bone of her right eye. Surgeon came out to tell us that while he is not positive until the pathology comes back, he thinks it is neurofibroma - something that usually only appears in children. He said, "I have been doing this for 15 years, and have never seen this in an adult, but it looks, acts and feels like neurofibroma." His other thought? Lymphoma. Ugh....
The Ugly - tonight I made soft tacos for dinner. SS14 comes downstairs, takes one look and says, "humph, there's hardly any meat." I say, "it's two pounds, SS14, same as we always use." SS14 says, "yeah, whatever you say." DH got the look from me, and he immediately lit into SS14 about disrespect, tone of voice, blah blah blah. SS14 came back with the ever-popular "I didn't know I was being rude."
That one sent me right over the edge. I explained to him that I no longer was buying that excuse. That rude was rude and rude is totally unacceptable in MY house. DH tagged in at that moment and I left the room.
so. tired. of. that. kid.
He is just like the Beast. Nothing was ever her fault, either.
