Good news! H talked to BM about a different schedule that allows me some skid-free days and she agreed!!!! Yay!!!! I'm so happy and relieved and very pleased with H. He told her that our schedule had changed and that we couldn't have the skids on certain days, but in order to keep the same amount of time with them, we extended our custody time to 8:00pm on the days that we do have them. It's exactly what I wanted! Now I will have days of peace and no skids and more QT with H and also on the days that we do have the skids, we will actually be able to have quality time with them too rather then just having them do homework, feeding them and returning them to BM like we have been doing. Plus, we will be getting them ready for bed and H is really happy about being a part of their night time routine because he really misses that from before. We had them today and I was in such a good mood that I think it was contagious. We made dinner for them, helped with homework and then actually had time to hang out with them. I wasn't feeling as bitter and resentful and so I actually played video games with both skids and ended up actually having fun. They were way more relaxed because everything wasn't rushed. I'm so relieved and happy! We didn't even have to go through some ridiculous court/lawyer drama!
ALSO NEWSFLASH: BM got fired from her job!!! Haha, I know I am evil to enjoy this petty little moment, but my petty little moments are precious and few and far between. She was given the choice to quit with a good reference or get fired and she went with the reference, but basically it's the same thing. Either go quietly or go with a bang and amazingly she went quietly. We checked and even if she can't get another job or is flat broke it won't affect CS or our custody. It might actually work in our favor in the future. Anyway, I am being a bitch about this, I fully admit, but I am thoroughly enjoying that she finally got what was coming to her. She hurt so many people, was completely incompetent and caused about six friends of mine to lose their jobs and now karma is biting her in the ass. Sweet, sweet karma.
