Unsettled and can't sleep

I am sitting here watching disk 2 of the second season of the Gilmore Girls. I finished Dawson's Creek finally and can't believe I made it through six seasons of it courtesy of Netflix. God bless em.

It is no secret that I am not thrilled with where I live. Let me be more clear. While I am very pleased with my home per se, I am not thrilled with my town or with the entire surrounding area otherwise known as southeast Louisiana. The whole hurricane was no fun but it has been the aftermath that has really killed the mystique of The Dirty South for me. I am just wholly disgusted. It does not help that we are in incredibly close proximity to this ex-wife and all that being near her entails. I would pretty much give anything to move. Truth be told, as much as I detest snow and cold weather, I would even go north of the Mason Dixon where things like snow and salted roads and white Christmases are normal things. And as much as I detest all things Bush or Dallas Cowboyish, I would even move to TX.

Well, I have to vent my feelings here because this is never going to happen. I shall be here for the rest of my days - spitting distance from her, in a town filled with people who will never think of me as anything but a home wrecking whore, in a place where I swear to God people still fly the rebel flag. Yeah, I'm not kidding. This place has changed me and not for the better. It is a constant struggle to maintain my old self - the self who did not jump to conclusions based on skin color or the way someone was dressed and gave people the benefit of the doubt. The self who was sometimes disillusioned but had faith in the idea that things would turn out ok.

Oh, I forgot to mention there is a good chance that we will not be getting the child support reduction that we thought we were due. The hubs attorney called yesterday and informed him that it appears he makes too much money. You know, that money he derives from working every single bloody day always. He is being punished for that. So it appears that we will be paying all this money for another 2 years. Please explain this to me because I just do not get it. Two children equals X amount of child support. One of said children turns 18 and that amount should go down, correct??? I mean, am I missing a link to this logic that would change that outcome? No? OK, then. WHAT THE FUCK????

Have I forgotten to say that I hate it here?

Dallas would be happy to have you.

As for her,when I come visit you, I'll egg her car.

Oh, and I'm not a Cowboys fan. Don't tell Tammy.

at 11:56 AM Blogger Tammy said...

Kami. I just don't know that I can be frieds with you anymore. Not a Cowboy fan? What am I to do with you? At least you like the Horns.

SFG - Pack your shit. Move to big D. People still fly their rebel flags, but there are great bitches here for you to be friends with. :)

Move HERE to Austin!!! I think you will see the flag no matter where you are in the south. I doubt it will ever go away.

That is total bullshit about the child support. Is there any way you can fight it? It just doesn't make any sense. The 18-yer-old needs to get a fucking job.

Being stuck in a place you don't like sucks... Tell hubs you are moving to the Big D!

at 1:41 PM Blogger Gracie said...

Um...you could move to Lafayette...

Sorry to hear about the child support crap. It doesn't make sense and it's definitely not fair.

I know, know, KNOW how you feel.

How can you be a homewrecking whore?

The guy falls in love with you because he was miserable before he met you...So why does that make it your fault? Does that mean I am one too?

Actually truth be told I kind of like that as a nickname...it makes us sound all scary and shit. ;)

I would love to move to Florida but it will NEVER happen. Well maybe when I'm like 60 and shit.

Get another f-ing lawyer.

I got yer' back my dear
Your evil twin sister :)

I'm so sorry. We don't like Bush or the Cowboys here in Austin *grin*

We'll be out that way next month - Cooter Brown's OK for a beer?? It's my favorite.

Oh YEAH...I forgot Nicole is a homewrecking whore too. But then I've met the ex and I can vouch that Fran moved WAY up when he left that crazy bitch.

In Texas you stop paying when they turn 18 but I dunno about Louisiana law. They're pretty backwards there. So's Mississippi. Actually I think Miss is worse so be glad you live in LA.

Move to Houston. Nicole has picked your house out.

at 3:57 PM Blogger Carrie said...

Okay ladies. Stop with the homewrecking whore name calling.

I refuse to think of either of you as being such.

Well, if you ever can move, we'd love to have you. :)

That child support issue is BULLSHIT. Not fucking fair at all. I don't get it, either.
And I know how you feel about where you live changing... I hate where I live, too. I've been there so long and I'm so tired of it. Not to mention the people suck ass.
