The Phone Call

Serenity called me in near panic.  She’d been sleeping and heard someone banging on the front door.  Since she was home alone, she looked out the window upstairs to see if she could see who was at the door.  To her surprise she saw a couple of cop cars in front of our house.  She …

Jury Duty….Really?

It was a month until the wedding and I had jury duty.  Really?  The universe just had to throw that at me right then? Treun and I still couldn’t get the guest list under control.  I was so stressed that I was ready to just run away.  We’d seriously started talking about scrapping the whole …

Back Child Support

I logged into my bank the other day to check on things.  I used to just look at it twice a month since I pretty much know what I have in there.  I’m buying gifts for Christmas with cash I’d saved over the past few months but need to buy a few things online.  I …

Bubba Loses His Job….Again

I was talking to Serenity the other day as we got in the car to drop her off at Greta’s house.  She said, “Bubba got fired again.”  I wasn’t as shocked as I probably should’ve been.  Serenity told me that he’d told her the night before and told her not to tell the boys.  I …

I Love You

Three little words.  Three simple little words.  But they are trapped.  They are in my head, swirling around every time Treun and I are together.  They stand between us, neither of us saying them.  Me definitely feeling them, him I think feeling them. Why can’t I say the words.  Simply look at him and say, …

He Doesn’t Get It

Treun just doesn’t understand.  He doesn’t get it.  He will never understand abuse and I’m struggling right now with whether that is a good thing or a bad thing.  I simply don’t know. Endellion insists it is a good thing because that means he has no experience with abuse, he has no frame of reference.  …

Child Support Issues Again

Bubba hasn’t made a child support payment in six weeks.  He’s $7K behind in child support now.  I often wonder what he thinks about this debt he has to me.  Does he think it will just disappear once the kids turn 18?  I know he doesn’t feel like he should have to pay anything because …

Where Are My Children?

I talked to Liam the other day.  He wants me to give him permission to purchase something that I’m not entirely comfortable allowing him to purchase.  I told him I needed to think about it and we could talk the next day.  He told me that he wouldn’t be able to because he’d be in …

Overwhelmed

The other night Shane’s therapist came over to have a phone session with Shane.  The call was supposed to last 30 minutes then she was supposed to have 30 minutes with me.  Treun and I had a date so I told him when I’d be done with the therapist and he headed over.  The therapist …

Scattered

I was scattered all morning at work.  I felt like I was just spinning my wheels.  I was so busy and felt like I was accomplishing nothing.  It was very frustrating and at lunch I decided to take some caffeine teabags to work.  Maybe I’d try some caffeine and see what happened.  Treun and I …
