The calm before the storm!

September 11th, 2016 at 08:50 pm

Today was thankfully low key compared to the past couple of days. We go to court tomorrow to find out what will happen with the kids in the short term. Right now there are a lot of emotions from all sides and it will be nice to get a plan in place so that everyone understands at least the legal expectations. I just hope there isnt near term turmoil for the little guys. Z starts kindergarten in the morning, so DD2 plans to make the morning special for him before heading off to court.

I spent today home with a sore throat. No bueno. At least it wasnt a work day and I was able to relax. Hopefully I will wake up all better, and ready for the busy week ahead! I can't afford to get sick right now. We have PTO at work, which means one pot for all sick and vacation time to pull from. I keep at least 40 hours on the books for an emergency, but otherwise, I use my time off. Right now, I my time off is scheduled through next May, so I am hesitant to dip into that emergency 40, unless absolutely necessary!

I ate leftovers today, and so it was a no spend day. Likely tomorrow I will go to lunch after court with DD1, who plans to go with me. Dd2 has to attend via phone since she took 2 days off last week to get the kids situated, registered, etc.

Again, thank you for all the kind wishes regarding the kids. I appreciate all of the support for them.

    I remember I was with my single friend when she had a home study toward adopting the child in her care. The social worker had said that it was a "positive" that they really would note to see that she had friends who were also immensely interested in the child's well-being and in the child / new parent relationship. Hope the court will take note of that for these kids....Hope you are peacefully sleeping now (about midnight central time).

    I hope it works out well. The kids deserve better than what they are getting with their "mother".

    Joan of the Arch - We would adopt Z in a heartbeat, but so far weve been told that's not an option. I can understand, family first- but when family first isn't going well, it makes it tough. Thank you for your support. Smile
    Laura and MM - Thank you. Smile
