Here it is 1:55 pm, Thursday, August 19, 2021. And the girls will be home in 1 hour, and 5 min. Unless DH takes them to the museum, like I asked. We shall see. And what have I done? Not much. Ate twice. We know you never miss a meal!! Shut up, skinny girl that I swallowed!! Started 1 load of laundry. Read FB. Not much, in other words.
I need to update y’all. I don’t think I’ve talked about the court hearing. Have I? Maybe you need to go check?? Ding it! I hate not having a search feature!! Then you need to learn how to add 1. I know it! Quit nagging me! BRB, going to check.
Nope, I haven’t. Okay, the first court hearing was August 5th, by zoom. And unbelievably, the judge ordered their i. dad to have alternating weekends, starting the next day!!
We were all 4 at the museum, when I found out. I was crying so hard, I nearly lost my breath. When I had to tell the girls, I thought I’d die from pain. Mine, and theirs on top. They did NOT want to go to him. They brought up the fact that we had promised them, they’d never have to go back.
DD1 and I talked to them when we got home. Sadly, we had to explain that Mommy had done ALL she could to keep them from going back to even visit. After their passionate exclaimations that they just wouldn’t go! We had to explain, Mommy would go to jail for contempt of court, if they didn’t. That hurt too, having to put adult stresses on them.
So, resignedly, with drooping heads, they went.
When we picked them up Sunday evening, PP’s face was burnt so badly, we had to take her to the Dr, for prescription cream. Well, we were gonna take them anyway, for school physicals.
Poor baby, was in a lot of pain. She couldn’t even wear her glasses for 8 days.
Now, here it is Thur, and they have to go again tomorrow.
PP asked her Mommy to let her talk to the judge, and explain they didn’t want to go back. Unhappily, she couldn’t. DD1 had already asked the judge, and they said 8 was too little to pick where she wanted to live. WHAT?? Meanwhile in other places 4 yo are allowed to pick their gender??? Crazy mixed up world, this is.
Final hearing is end of Sept. I’m praying to God the judge will make the right decision for the girls. A LOT less time with their dad!! At least since they’re now in school, I don’t think they would be ordered to move up there full time.
Oh, yes, almost forgot. He refused to give them their meds. He doesn’t “believe” in pyschiatry. And PP “isn’t” autistic. Poor babies! I really don’t see how they coped the whole last year. They are strong girls!!
The only good thing about them going up there is, I get to go to my new church for Sunday School, where my Sissy teaches. I always enjoy her lessons. Then we leave immediately after, to go get the girls.
Last time, I rented a car, since 2 of ours were in need of repair. And I certainly was NOT about to try to go up in the KIA!!
It was a 7 passenger Highlander. STILL not big enough! lol We need a tour bus, apparently! Built in beds, and potty. Fridge for our very important drinks, and snax!!
But now the van, and truck are both fixed . Woohoo! So, van it will be.
Cuz all 5 of us can’t fit in the truck either. Well, technically, I guess. But my butt dimensions do not allow for that!
See ya next week. Maybe I’ll do something besides laundry?? Time will tell…
Oh wait!! I did pray for people, and read 2 chapters in Psalms. That is a good day’s work for me.
(Also ordered flowers for my friend in the hospital, recovering from surgery.)
Ya did alright girl. You’ll do.
