Welcome to another edition of Friday Fragments, hosted by Mrs.4444 over at Half Past Kissin’ Time. I have found several blogs to add to my reader by participating, and I hope you will all take the time to visit one or two others. You won’t be sorry. Or if you are, don’t blame me!
Pass: We all made it through the grueling first week of school with minimal problems. I was only late for work once due to the new routine, and that was because I got pulled over a couple of days ago. Didn’t get a ticket, because I have big breasts an in with with cops here.
Fail: The one job I applied for isn’t going to work out, so I am back to the streets looking. Tomorrow I will hit the pavement in hopes of finding a part-time position somewhere. Seems that few places are hiring part-time employees, and for obvious reasons I can’t take a full-time job. I am starting to feel seriously panicked because I don’t have enough to pay the rent and also the two collector’s bills. One will be taken out of my check, of course, and if I don’t pay the other, it will also be taken out of my check. So come on, part-time job!
Fail: We were supposed to have the sentencing hearing on Monday, but it has been postponed again. The Victim’s Assistance Coordinator, S. was also not at all nice to me; I was trying to explain how frustrating it is and how angry I am that this has dragged on for so long, and that even in the end (whenever that might be-we are realistically looking at the beginning of NEXT FUCKING YEAR) he is only going to get a slap on the hand, and she said, “You know, you didn’t have to agree to the plea deal. YOU are the one who didn’t want Hannah to have to testify,” implying of course that my anger and upset is unwarranted because it is my fault. I can’t even go into how I feel about this without crying, and once I start crying I am not going to stop, so I am taking deep breaths every second so that I don’t fall apart. That isn’t an option. Suffice it to say that I am just-done.
Pass: Steve’s cell phone did not even come into the bedroom last night. I still didn’t sleep well, but at least I didn’t almost get to sleep only to be rudely interrupted.
Pass/Fail: This one could go either way. We have a family birthday party for Steve’s brother tonight. We are all meeting at a local pizza joint, which means free food (PASS), but the price means spending the better part of the evening with a few people who make me want to claw my eyes out (not all of them; I really genuinely love parts of Steve’s family) and missing the Friday AA meeting.
Potential Pass: Rumor has it that Child Support Services had found my ex and has also been able to put in a support order because he is getting Work Comp payments. He is also supposedly getting close to settling on this work-related accident he had that supposedly left him unable to work (I say supposedly because even though I know he was in a pretty bad wreck, I don’t know if he really can’t work or is just looking for a way to get a bunch of money that he doesn’t deserve. Past history says the latter, but if he truly WAS disabled then it is a different situation). IF this all really happens, I should start getting some regular child support payments and also a lump sum to pay all his back child support. Now, whether this really happens or not remains to be seen, so of course I am not counting on jack shit; once I have $$ in hand, I will believe it.
Pass: Hannah’s new boyfriend is as pleasant as pleasant can be. He doesn’t get jealous or upset when she lives her life and he isn’t her first priority, and doesn’t put his life on hold for her. They both have plans over the weekend so they are going to, get this, go to church together on Sunday. Really, how cool is that?
Fail: Chy is still missing.
I somehow don’t think I am going to be in the running for the best fragments this week, but someone will; don’t miss out on the snippets of deliciousness waiting over at Mrs.4444’s place.
