Wow, I haven't posted a blog since February? Amazing. I thought I was starting to be fairly regular with it. A ton has happened since then too.
I started using Facebook quite a bit, so that may have something to do with my lack of blogging. I actually started playing Tennis. We played several times, but overall we were not able to make it 'regular'.
My tennis partner Sarah and I got pretty close, too close actually (considering our situations), and it has ruined our friendship. I mean, I don't consider it entirely in ruin and I hope to retain her as an Internet friend if possible. She is moving away soon, so any actual issues we have will be irrelevant.
Due to the extreme nature of the arguments between Nicole and I, and the content of those arguments, I got scared that she might try to take one or both the kids when she came to visit in late March. So I finally filed for Divorce and I filed a restraining order preventing her from taking the boys out of the state (technically I think she was also legally restrained from taking Me out of the state, the wording on those is kind of tricky LOL).
Once we got to court for the restraining order we dropped it for just a simple court order to keep the boys here until the end of School.
But Suprise Suprise, preschool is out a MONTH before the regular school year.
We have a hearing on May 11th that will determine what the parenting plan and child support for the rest of the divorce will be, up until the final decisions are in place. But also being decided that day is something very important. Something that, in my mind, has become the single most important thing to ever happen to me. The judge will determine if I have any legal parantal rights to my oldest Son Jadon. I have been his father since he was 8 months old and we are trying to prove that I meet all of the requirements for a certain lawful precendence that was set in a similar situation.
8 days until that hearing, and at times I snap under the strain of thinking of all the things that could go wrong. I've very nearly had two anxiety attacks at work in the last week alone. But for the most part I am keeping it together. I dont have someone I can talk to about this now that Sarah and I can't be close. Maybe that is why I feel the need to blog again, I don't know. Now that it is set to Private, only my friend's can see it so I feel safer in what I can say.
Speaking of work (yes I mentioned it up there somewhere) I HAVE A NEW JOB!!!
I got a job about a month ago at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (its a mouthful, but I will be calling it either just Schweitzer or SEL in the future). I am super excited about it, it has a TON of great benefits that will help the boys and I, it is a good opprotunity for us as a family. The pay is not entirely exciting, but I will make it be enough.
I am sure there is a ton of stuff I am not saying, but it will come to me, hopefully I will make these regular again. I think I have to, to keep myself sane (and informed about my everymove, he is a tricky man, but I will keep an eye on him(me) for you)
Also, I updated the survey on my MySpace profile. Some of the information was out of date.
