    Update on our life

    Lol! I think a mommy time out sounds like an amazing idea. I could very much use one!

    Update on our life

    It is good to "see" you as well!! Yes, the kids are getting big! The younger 5 are all in public school now. H is at the community college and doing well. Thankfully her tuition is covered by financial aid. S is a Junior in high school. She is actually in a play right now at school and just made the honor society. E is in 6th grade and has become quite the softball catcher. L is also in 6th grade and is just as softball crazy. She actually just got diagnosed as having ADHD and autism (bringing our total to 2 with ADHD, 3 with epilepsy, and 3 with autism) B is in 5th grade and still a hand full. His behavior is vastly improved, and he has developed a love of technology. M is in 4th grade. After years of intensive speech therapy, she is FINALLY talking! She has soooo much to say and has quite the little personality. Medically speaking we are in a quiet period. E has stopped growing again and has to go back to endocrinology for follow ups. L however got a clean bill of health from cardiology and endocrinology so I am hopeful E will as well. Everyone's epilepsy is under control, so I am taking that as a massive blessing.

    Update on our life

    Lots of big changes at my house... I got accepted to nursing school! I have 4 classes left and I will have completed my RN degree. I have a 4.0 and I am loving the program. I am working full time as a 911 response EMT. They just made me a supervisor as well. I love my job! Last summer my husband announced he was moving out. He stated he wasn't in love with me anymore. I now know he was talking to another woman for over a year. He has an apartment across town and I have filed for divorce. I have full custody of the kids and he sees them sporadically a few times a month. So yeah. Single mom of 6, working full time, and going to school full time. There is definitely some belt tightening happening at our house these days. I plan to sell the house this spring. We will split the equity and then I will be moving with the kids to something smaller that I can better afford. Until then I'm just doing what I need to do to make the ends meet.
  4. Congratulations!!!!!

    What's up with us

    He would be non-deployable for 4 years if he gets the special duty. As much as I would hate to move again I would do it happily if it means he stops deploying constantly.

    What's up with us

    Let's see.... Dh started his new job last week. He is miserable. He is the top level of rank on the flightline before the jump to "the office". They are under manned and he is pretty frustrated. He is applying for every special duty available in an attempt to move to a new base. I have been on my new medications for almost a week. The beta blocker has dropped my resting heart rate from 100 to 60. I may still need another medication to drop my blood pressure as well. The anti depressant is doing it's job. I have gone from being numb and feeling like I am "sleep walking" all day to "waking up". No more sleeping for 14 hours a day and then crying all day. I feel like myself again. Things are starting to interest me again and I am starting to care about things like cleaning and such again. I am not giddy with happiness but who is We are still waiting for the court system to issue our judgement against the former landlord. We sent in all of our paperwork several weeks ago so we just have to wait. Still waiting for our state tax refund as well. They required a pile of extra paperwork from us before they would pay. According to that letter it could be June before they pay. We are still pushing our way through BS3. We are just shy of $10,000. The goal is to get to $20,000 (5 mths expenses) and then restart BS4. I would like to go back and add more to BS3 at some point but we need to start working on sinking funds as well. Think that is all we have going on over here these days.

    More court drama

    Absolutely nothing. Dh wrote a letter saying we did not approve the last continuation and do not approve any future ones. If the guy holds to form he will send a letter in asking for.it to be moved again 3 days before the date. At this point nothing is happening. Clever I do not expect him to pay. I expect him to have yet another trick up his sleeve. Heck maybe a whole lot of tricks. None of which we will have seen coming. He has been sued multiple times just on this property alone. We are doing this simply because he ticked us off and it is the principal of the matter. If we somehow manage to get a court order for him to pay before he files bankruptcy I guess we will try to get a property lien. I don't know. I am just focusing on trying to get the ______ into a court room.

    More court drama

    I know. That is the only reason I am still pushing through.

    More court drama

    Our court date was scheduled for Monday morning. Today we received notice that he got it continued again. He timed it perfectly. In his letter to the court he says that we agreed to the continuation. There is absolutely nothing we can do about it. I can call Monday morning and say we did NOT agree but it will be too late. He very neatly boxed us into a corner. He got it continued for another month. We will obviously call on Monday to say we do not agree to any continuations. I hate this man. This is absolutely pointless. We will never see a dime and we are sick of dealing with him.

    Court Update

    We are fighting him tooth and nail not to move the date any farther than mid February (Which is when dh will be back). I am so sick of dealing with him. He is obviously stalling and trying to drag this out till we get tired and go away. ETA: I just called the court and we are now scheduled for Feb 29th. Prayers that this actually happens would be lovely.

    Court Update

    We are still waiting to hear from the court on our request to change the date of our apperance. We did however hear from the PIA landlord. He called my husband today and left him a message. Apparently there has been a "death in the family" and he is asking for "an abatement" since he will be out of town for 30 days. We are obviously quite thrilled to hear he is trying to string this out even longer. There is some worry he is working on filing bankruptcy and before we can get a judgement. According to our lawyer that is a very real possibility. I don't even know why we are doing this at this point. He is still jerking us around and stringing things out. The chances of getting a dime out of this jerk are so slim at this point. We are going through with it because I am too ticked off to let it go but all that is happening is that after 6 mths I am still just as mad as I was at the time it happened. I told my husband to not take the man's calls and to not return his calls. There is no point. I am all for getting the new date and then fighting tooth and nail to stop him from moving it any farther back. Anyways there is our update. Such fun.

    More Prayers :(

    My husband's friend and former coworker commited suicide today. My friend's husband who committed suicide the last week of December was laid to rest on the 8th. Last week another military member on our base attempted suicide but was found quickly. The effects of PTSD are very real and rocking our world at the moment. Dh and I are both shocked, heartbroken, and feeling helpless. Prayers for all affected would be appreciated. It breaks my heart that these men are not getting the help they so desperately need.

    The first week jinx

    This week is going much better. Last week was just a triple whammy of stress and difficulties. I think there was definitly some situational depression going on. I think that since we have done this so many times that makes it harder not easier. I know what is coming. We are both so burnt out and done with it all. This week is going smoothly and things are progressing well. Just the usual difficulties with 7 people living in a house 24/7. The kids managed to break the fridge in 2 different places. I need to research how to fix that. That sort of thing. Good news is that our school work is 100% on schedule and little bit is rock solid with her potty training. We are studying Germany for the next two weeks. We always like the start of a new unit. Especially the projects and food! Dh is doing well on his TDY. He has taken care of the court "stuff" from his end. While the kids and I are welcome to go to the court house for the court date dh is the one that HAS to be there. It is his name on the lease and his name on the court case. I called and they refused to acknowledge the POA. He is the one that has to show up. Anyways he is sending in the letters tomorrow to ask for the court date to be changed. I managed to cut in some new bangs at an angle so it looks like the shortest part was intentional instead of a screw up. Looks much better now.

    The first week jinx

    After months of fighting with the court system we FINALLY got a court date. Of course it came in this week and is for 2 weeks from now. Dh will still be gone. I called and they do not honor power of attorney, he has to be here. We now have to write ANOTHER letter to the landlord showing that we are requesting a date change. We then have to send a copy to the court AGAIN. Then maybe they will move it to when dh will be here. Blood work, shots, and perscriptions done today. I am soooooo tired. Someone gave the cat a hair cut. My keys have apparently been in the car for 2 days (glad we have an alarm). I have zero energy for dinner. I would order in if anyone would deliver out here to the boonies. So far our week from hell is not getting any better. I am scared to see what tomorrow brings.
