Thankful Thursday!

I have so much to be thankful for!

My kids, who I love, even when they drive me crazy.

My job, even when I have to deal with some frustrating people, because overall I think I have one of the best jobs possible for me in the whole world, and I LIKE IT and I generally LIKE the people I work with. Also, I get paid a reasonable wage, and even if it would be nice to get more and I think I deserve more, I can LIVE ON IT.

Really awesome friends - but, at the moment, I am specifically thinking of trystel and tuto, who kindly let me invade their home last night and have made me coffee and pampered me and allowed me to avail myself of their internet connection. Only a few more hours till trystel and I head down to see moosaic4. We are going to have such fun!

And finally, I am thankful that court went well. I was so stressed about that the last few weeks, and especially the last few days - between not sleeping, feeling sick, being unable to focus at work and having a massive fight with GirlyGirl, it's been hellish, so I would have been glad to just have it be over no matter what. Not only is it over, but the judge is making him pay the arrears from the last 7 months. When that is done, I told the judge I am more than willing to let ex-of-mine pay a lower child support, but I want him to help Girly with the cost of bus tickets for job searching etc.

Bah. If ex-of-mine had just come to me to talk about this, we could have avoided the whole going to court thing all together. But I don't think I words can adequately describe how intensely thankful I am this is over.

I really liked our judge. When ex-of-mine got confrontational with me about a few things, he nipped it in the bud. And when ex-of-mine's MOTHER spoke from the gallery (which as far as I know, IS AGAINST THE RULES!) he seemed surprised, but rolled with it.

On my way out the door, but what a relief it must be to have that over with--and the judgment in your favor! Kudos to you for standing up for your kids and what they were owed. :-)

So happy that it turned out well. What a classy ex-m-i-l yelling from the gallery. (snort)
