There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Stephell.
DH: You just think life will be so much better when the kids grow up and move out
ME: (In my head...Yes, yes I do)
SD has a 27% in Algebra
BM: When does anyone really use Algebra?
BM threatening court again.
Honestly, I could write 5 different blogs just on the crap we have went through the last seven days alone in stephell but I won't bore everyone with all the crappiness. Instead, here is the latest installment of "I'm taking you to court".
SS12 lives with us full time and SD14 lives with BM full time.
Two things happened this weekend that I can't stop thinking about. In the grand scheme of things they are small but annoying.
First, I came home from work on Thursday and it's SS's day to do his laundry. I check to make sure it's started because sometimes he forgets. I see that he has half a load of laundry in the washer and it hasn't been started yet (like 3 pairs of pants and a couple shirts). Odd.
How do you deal with overweight skids with regards to meals and snacks?
My SD is 13 going to be 14 next month. She is currently wearing size 16 women's pants and size large women's shirts (She around 5'3).
Both Skids were pretty cubby when they were younger. They both had growth spurts (SS's hasn't stopped yet) and lost a lot of weight.
Now, SD has stated gaining weight again.
A month ago, we took the kids to Steak and Shake because DH had been wanting to go and we were out and about. So, why not.
STILL dealing with this situation.
We finally were able to get the extra payment stopped by closing our bank account. It was (still is actually) a nightmare. They were unable to block the auto payments to child support. So we just closed the account.
So, yesterday, DH gets a letter in the mail saying he owes money because they were unable to get money out of our bank last week. BUT they did garnish his pay check.
After BM got her panties in a twist because DH dared tell her that she needs to help out if she wants SD to be in chorus next year, she decided that she wasn't going to get SS for her weekend.
She proceeded to get upset because she asked DH what SS's phone number was and he ignored her. Then she bragged that she got it from SD. :? :? :?
It's really hard to understand crazy people. She wants DH and his parents to drive SD all over town for Chorus but then decides to not see SS for her weekend. She only gets him every other weekend as it is.
Too Funny....I just posted about SD joining after school activities and how BM does nothing to ever help out.
I guess DH text BM telling her that if SD wants to join any activities that BM will have to help us out.
She sent back this.
you can't have a little bit more respect you have to try to be a bully about it that doesn't work with me and you know that and if I have to work I have to work so she a big girl she can find her own way that's what grandparents and daddies are for is to help not have all the responsibility put on me just because she lives with me
But I'm not feeling good about it.
Last night was a sort of open house for 8th grade students to tour the high school. Of course, BM refuses to take SD13 (BM has full custody of SD and we have SS)
I guess I'm going to be today's blog hog.
We took skids to BM's house on the 23th of Dec. SS just came back home yesterday afternoon. (As a side note, it was absolute bliss being kid free for so long)
I asked SS how his time with mom was. Did he have fun. Normal conversation. I also asked him if he got anything fun for Christmas.
We knew that skids were saying that BM was just going to give them money. DH and I figured they were wrong because BM told DH she was working extra shifts because she had put Christmas items on her credit card.
When DH first got divorced he was paying CS via garnishment from his pay check.
Two summers ago, the contract job that he held for 5 years ended. We contacted the CS office and decided that direct withdrawal from our bank account would be best because DH wasn't sure where and when he was going to land.
Since then he has held 4 jobs and was laid off for almost 4 months over the summer. He was never in jeopardy of going into arrears because CS was coming directly from our bank account.
