Day 83: Two weeks later.

So, it's been two weeks, to the day, since I've posted. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it was lovely, of course. Got to spend a lot of time with Boogie. Had court for the Temporary Relief Order. I now get him either 2 or 4 days a week; because R's attorney (go figure) completely ignored both of us, actually, when we said we didn't like his idea of what would be a suitable visitation arrangement. Where we should be having equal time, R automatically gets more. Needless to say, I'm not thrilled. I'm hoping R will eventually work with me on setting up a better plan, because, as it is, this one sucks. I have Boogie on Tues, Thurs, and alternate weekends. The back and forth is not healthy for him, but - surprise, surprise - R doesn't care. He's just going to go by whatever works best for him.

The mother of the asshole should have swallowed, that's all I'm saying.

Anyway, I managed to get my answer - and the counter-claim - to his attorney; which, for those wondering, means that the divorce won't be defaulting against me - as I'm sure R was hoping/planning that it would - and I won't be losing Eric. I just have to get it filed now. I'll have to find a day here soon when I can. Oy.

Have I mentioned how much I hate not having a car?

Let's see... what else.... Oh. Christmas shopping is done now. I only bought stuff for my soldiers this year; well, and Eric, of course. Everyone else, I love you, but there's a reason I'm not asking for presents from anyone.

I'm a little worried about a friend of mine who - quite honestly - is going way overboard with the Christmas presents for a girl he's only been dating for about three months. Granted, he's only doing it because she is, but still. Between the both of them, they'll probably rack up about $2k! I mean, really? I know he's head over heels for this girl, but ... ugh. I've already told him my opinion about her being a Class A Cling-On, but he's determined. So, ah well. Best of luck to them.

In other news, Monkey has his first MMA fight coming up. That's going to be awesome to watch. I can't wait. He's really excited about it; and so am I, but I'm also really nervous. I despise violence. So I'm a little worried about how I'll react if he starts bleeding. Sad, I know, but true.

Anyway, I have to finish getting ready for that thing called a job now. Adios my lovelies.

Remember. One day at a time.

  1. Sounds as if you had a good stretch, family-wise.

    And - WTF, 2K? I don't know if I spent that much on presents in my whole life! (We're a "small gift family", and I love it.)
