We are finally ready to set a court date. Next week I think. I will be so glad to finally get all this over with! Mary Jayne's birthday was last week and her mom, gramma & uncle called. I only spoke to the uncle & let him talk to her. She had no clue who he is. I don't think she has seen him in over a year. I didn't answer the other two calls. I just let the machine pick it up. The gramma wanted to know " Mary Jayne is probably settled in now (mind you she hasn't had any contact with her in a year) and I am ready to come get her so she can spend the weekends with us". My husband had gone out to their house (he said it reeked like pot really bad out there) when we found out things were bad with Mary Jayne's mom and they pretty much told him we don't have any money to do anything so you are going to have to be the one to do something. I told him why didn't they call the DHS or someone to let them know things in Mary Jayne's life were not so good. We had not seen Mary Jayne in a couple of months (the mom was mad at us for some reason or other) and I just couldn't believe a mom wouldn't step in and do something for her grandaughters. One of my girls went through a rough time and I am not ashamed to say that I did call the DHS two different times because of the condition she had our grandaughter in. Anyway, I just didn't answer the phone for either one of them. They both just want to argue about what happened in the past and bring up stuff that I have a hard time thinking about. Usually they say this is all your sons fault and I am like, he has been dead for 3 years...how can it be his fault!
Ok, enough griping! The lawyer says we should incur another 2 or 3 thousand. I paid him another $500 yesterday when we saw him. But it is all worth it.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
