Court Hearing Coming

Well, at 9am we go back to court for anoth­er hearing—Juvenile Court this time. We expect that a guardian ad litem will be appointed.

The ex-wife has sup­pos­ed­ly filed a motion ask­ing the judge to issue orders say­ing that she can have the kids any time she’s in town, ignor­ing the vis­i­ta­tion sched­ule. We filed an answer ask­ing that the cur­rent sched­ule be observed, as the oth­er judge ordered. If she gets her way, she’ll get the kids tomor­row evening. That means they’d miss the kid gam­ing sched­uled here at our place, which would suck. Tonight G told me that her moth­er said she WOULD see the kids this week­end no mat­ter what the judge says, which isn’t very reassuring—especially since the ex paid off some old fines and got her dri­ver’s license back. She’s bor­rowed a friend’s car and is there­fore far more mobile than before. Not a hap­py thing for some­one who tried to break your door down in the past.

Hap­py, low-dra­ma, a judge with com­mon sense who will see through her “I’m a good moth­er” act vibes are much appre­ci­at­ed. We real­ly want a good guardian ad litem, too.

I got my hair cut and col­ored again today, so at least I feel much more con­fi­dent about how I look. I haven’t decid­ed what I’ll wear yet, though. I’m think­ing a busi­ness suit won’t send the right mes­sage, but my favorite “sweet stay-at-home mom” dress is short-sleeved. Hmph. Not sure what to do there. I have no excuse for wear­ing the Girl Scout leader stuff 🙂

shad­owkatt went to work with sam­bear today—she’s start­ed vol­un­teer­ing there one day a week, and for the first three weeks she also has offi­cious vol­un­teer train­ing from 6–9. That makes for a very long day! And they’re just now get­ting home because after her class sam­bear dis­cov­ered that once again, the house­keep­ing staff did not pre­pare the con­fer­ence room for an impor­tant meet­ing in the morn­ing. He had to do it, which sucks. And I want to beat the guy who was sup­posed to do it and kept my loved ones out so late!

real_pochacco got his glass­es tonight! They look delight­ful­ly geeky —small oval frames that real­ly suit his face. He was run­ning about mar­veling at how many things he’d missed see­ing before. Since his uncor­rect­ed vision was only 20/70 in one eye and 20/40 in the oth­er, I was sur­prised that they made such a big difference.
