Got up at 7 a.m. (gasp) to tell the children goodbye and read the paper. I’m going to check my e-mail and blog quickly then get dressed and start my panic. Oh, who am I kidding? Everyone knows I’ve been in a panic for days. Today I start my meltdown so that by Sunday night I am a total mess for Doug to leave town for what is now 3 weeks (originaly he said 2). We are dog sitting my mother’s mischievious (and poorly trained) Corgi for the weekend.
The three older children are insured by my ex. Apparently they changed insurance coverage March 1st but the jerk never bothered to tell me or send cards. So last night I had no choice but to pay $50 for a script. All money paid toward deductables is now lost and we start over on a new plan that I know nothing about. I am incredibly angry. He just sat back and waited till we had problems before saying anything. Maliciousness has always been his specialty. Do something deviously cruel then sit back and smile while saying “It’s not my fault.” After he left me I went back to school because I didn’t know what else to do. He wrote a letter cancelling my financial aid applications. Even though I looked at the letter in the University’s file, he still denied doing it.
On the bright side, my brother and his wife are having their daughter today. Everyone in the family is there except me. Even my brother from Washington, DC is there. He phoned in for my deliveries. More baby details soon.
