I haven't updated on my friend Ann in a while, mainly because I haven't seen her much. She is still on suspension from work (it's been about four months now) and she's telling me now that they've recommended she resign. I still don't know what she did (or didn't do) and quite honestly, I don't want to know. I don't want any part of that mess. But she was told that if she resigns, her record will be sealed. If not, any agency she applies to from here on out will be able to access her records and see the charges. She'll never be able to get a job.
I haven't seen Ann in a while. As I mentioned in one of my other blog posts, she was suspended from her job about two months ago (I still don't know why and I could get in trouble for asking). But I got together with her and two other work friends last night for dinner at my house, and boy, she has lost her mind.
For those of you who have been following the misadventures of my friend Ann, sorry I haven't posted on her in a while. I've had a lot of my own stuff going on, work has been insane, and quite honestly, I got tired of Ann's drama. And it IS drama, all the damn time.
I haven't blogged in a while; there's been a lot going on and I've been crazy busy at work. First, about my son. BS21 is in his fourth and last year of college, is doing really well (Dean's list this past spring!), and has a girlfriend of about a year and a half, though they were friends for about a year before that. They moved in together this past January, and he just proposed to her. They haven't set a date yet, but supposedly plan to be married no earlier than summer of 2019.
Today marks three years since we have seen SS now 18. We've never even gotten a phone call. He did text exactly twice, once to ask for us to drop off his PlayStation at BM's and once to basically tell DH that he's a shit father and I'm the reason why.
DH continues to send him a card every year for his birthday and Christmas. He's dealt with the fact that he'll probably never see his son again. We have a happy life together, and will continue to have a happy life...whether SS ever chooses to be in it or not.
One week is the Perfect Love of a Lifetime, the next it's crap. Ann came into work upset today, shut the door to my office, and plopped down in a chair and started to sob. Apparently things aren't as hunky-dory with the Hot and Wonderful Tom as she made it appear just a week or so ago, when they were talking about buying a house together. Well, duh. Who didn't see that coming?
So, I got the scoop on the CPS visit. I have to be quick because I have a phone conference to be at, but I wanted to give you all the scoop.
Hi all! I've been lurking here and there, commenting now and then, but work has been INSANE and I haven't been able to hang out here like I used to. (Actually having to WORK on the job?! The horror!)
Ann ended up going to her wedding this past weekend solo. She sent me a couple texts and photos, and it seems like she had a nice time. Without DH (that's DickHead).
I just don't know what more needs to happen to get Ann to see that this situation is exactly what it appears to be- a cluster- and it isn't going to get any better. She came into work this morning crying (again). She and Tom had big plans- a three-day weekend away, just the two of them, in the city, where they would attend a wedding for one of Ann's relatives and spent the rest of the time getting cozy and doing some sightseeing and whatnot. Sitters were in place...then Mary happened.
