Good news and bad news.
« on: Oct 07, 2005, 09:19:22 PM »
SS took a polygraph last week. Either the results are in and he failed, or the results aren't in ... since BM has not called to gloat. Thats good news.

They LOs are more and more sure of themselves in how they are reacting to this. The counseling is helping them with some coping and social survival skills. And that is good.

On the other hand, this has reduced the amount of time that DH has with SS, as there just isn't enough money to have visitation with SS elsewhere  and DH's parents have only stepped up to one time a month having him there -- since they have obligations at Church in the nursery and cannot bring SS in there with them. And that is bad.

I have found some temp work and have caught up the bills. That is good.

But I have a hole in my stomach the size of Alaska from the commute (2 hours in and 2 hours back). and that is bad.
A true soldier fights, not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves whats behind him...dear parents, please remember not to continue to fight because you hate your ex, but because you love your children.

I thought you guys had decided on getting a cheap RV so that DH and SS can spend the nights out "there" so he could still come over but it will never be unsupervised???

But the Juvie Judge made a condition of SS' release that he could not be on our property overnight.

And before that, Unemployment was not enough to keep the bills going AND buy the RV.

After CS and health insurance, Dh's check can pay for the mortgage and food, or the utilities and other debts, not both. Unemployment was about half of what I made before the lay off. It has been quite a dance financially since then.

o.k., got it....

Maybe it's still a choice IF you guys have a campground nearby then -- and you just set the camper in place (or the tent for that matter) and Dad and son go spend the night together like that.

I know winter is approaching....etc...

Just trying to think -- danger danger danger!
