Log in

Since D broke the CPO, they issued a warrant out for his arrest.  I believed he turned himself in.  Today was a pre-trial court appearance.  The hearing started at 9am on the 15th floor.  I was on the 17th floor so I didn't have to see him at all.  I was extremely greatful for this.  I waited and waited and waited.  The prosecutor told D he should plead guilty take 90 days in jail and 90 days probation.  D didnt' take it, I saw this happening.  Instead he got a public defender and the case got a continuance until Septermber 26 at 9:30 am.  Now in a month I go back and do this whole thing over again.  This time I shall remember to bring along  my knitting so I don't sit in a room bored.

I have $16 to my name and wondering if everything I'm doing is worth it?  I know it is, but at times like this I wonder how I'm going to make it at all.  No money, no food and jack squat on a job.

I'll just keep thinking of positive thoughts

ODJFS

Oh the place you wait in until there is room in Hell.  Just kidding, but it does feel like it.  I was luckily only there for an hour this time. I turned in a copy of the restraining order so hopefully the ODJFS has everything to get me back on my foodstamps.  I really need them.

This weekend I'll be hitting up the food pantries so that I can feed my kids.  I hate using them, but I am quite desolute right now.  And these are here for people like me who need them.

I'm afraid to look at my bank account right now.  I'm pretty sure it's negative, just how much.  Well I don't want another thing to worry about on top of all my other worries.

I can do this, and I will keep saying it until I have done it.  Either that or quit and crawl into a hidey hole, with my teddy bear, until I can handle it.  To bad the hiding and the teddy bear aren't exactly productive solutions.

On a bright note, I can finally use my laptop again for internet.  No wifi but as long as I have an ethernet cable, I'm good to go.  I'm just now locked into place near the router because my cable is not very long.

Oh and divorce and restraining order have been filed.  My lawyer rocks.

That is all for now.

More ongoing items

Well I had a job interview today at Michael's.  I'm hoping they like me so I can get a job.  I should know more next week.

That's pretty much it.

Another Day

The weather is in the 50s and it's raining. I do wish winter would come and stay. All this rain is making me blah! I'd so love some sun. On the bright side, I don't have to drive the kids to school in the snow...yet....And it is only the middle of January, I have at least 2 months of winter to get some more snow and sun.

My kids have been home since Friday due to teacher work days and MLK day. They go back to school tomorrow and then their dad's. I won't see them till Monday after school. Part of me is all "Hooray! Some time to myself." The other part of me is all sad because I know I will miss them while they are gone.

I still have Delia and of course Dylan when I watch him so I am not kid free exactly.

On a bright note, I am almost done weening Delia. She will be two on March 2, so I feel really good and proud to have nursed her till she is almost 2. This is the longest time I have ever nursed a child. Now to get her to sleep through the night. Big old sigh here.

Anyone out there still reads this

Am just seeing if there is anyone out there who still is following this. If there are, I may start using it again.

Hugs,
Erin

Just an update

Am alive and doing well.

Sums up my life.

Check back later and maybe there will be more.

NaNoWriMo Write In/Kick Off

Went to one of the local NaNoWriMo kick off events.  It was pretty much like I expected it would be.  Spoke to some local participants.  One did win last year and her book is going to be published June of '10.  So that was cool.  Found many like me, have done it for many years but haven't won/finished.  My goal is to win and finish so am hoping going to these weekly write-ins will help.

So now to re-look at my plot, make some possible changes and get ready for November to start.

Go Me!
