Update on my incredibly interesting life. Don't laugh, ok?

OK, so I am in a much better mood than I was in the last couple of days. Yesterday I spent a ridiculous amount of time with my mother at a local hospital type place in order for her to get a test. Big fun. I did see one of my hub's 9 kagillion aunts there and found out (please brace y'allselves for this shit) that my MIL is planning on having a....seriously, are you braced?.....a party for her upcoming anniversary. Yeah, that doesn't sound so bad, right?


Oh wait.

Yeah, now it's coming to you.

Um, my FIL, the one to which she was married and had said anniversaries with, is DEAD. So she is planning on having a party celebrating that she is a widow. Um, I am not one to judge how another should mourn. I know that people deal with things differently, especially things that are difficult. However, is it just me or is that odd? As the hub's aunt said, "Is there something wrong with her?"

Today my mother had yet another doctor's appointment so we grabbed a quick bite to eat and then off to the appointment. It was not as appallingly long as yesterday's was, thank goodness. Then we hit the grocery to restock my really sad looking fridge and pantry. Then we hit Walgreens for the Momenator to grab another Rx. Now I am home innocently trying to watch disk 4 of Season 2 of the Gilmore Girls and the damn disk is fucking up. Why? Why? I ask so little of life.

Well, there is news on the child support front. It seems that we SHOULD get a small reduction in the child support but the actual amount is still up in the air until we find out exactly how much the bitch pays for insurance for the boy. That will affect what our reduction is. The better news is that the reduction, whatever it may be, is retroactive to the last day of school for the girl. Say prayers. Lots of prayers. We should know by 9:30 or 10 o'clock tomorrow. Central time. Keep sending the vibes people. Good vibes for lots of cash for us.

We also have a very important appointment tomorrow at 1. I am not going into details but it could be major for us. Think majorly good thoughts for that. In fact, this appointment is more important to me than the court in the morning so if you are short on vibes and can only give good vibes for one thing, then please pick this one. Does that make sense?

Oh man, I also got fabulous news. My annoying neighbors next door are moving. The stars have aligned I think. They must have because I am currently listening to him rev the engine of his motorcycle and it is like a spike going through my skull. That spike will be gone in March. God bless.

Well, being that the activity level that I have had to maintain for the last 2 days is way above what I committed to (which is sloth) I am behind on my relaxing, so I have to go get horizontal immediately or I might burn a calorie and that is not gonna happen if I continue to sit upright and type. I am almost exhausted.

Good luck on the child support thing.
Girl, we used to pay $1800 a month.
For about 2 years.
And whatever you are keeping from us GOOD LUCK with that too.
I can't wait to hear what it is!!

at 9:01 PM Blogger Pissy Britches said...

And BTW..we only paid it for 2 years b/c we had to spend 6 grand more and take the bitch to court to get custody.
She is suppose to pay us $200 a week for the last 5 years.
Do you think we have seen a penny?
Hell naw.

at 9:02 PM Blogger Pissy Britches said...

200 a MONTH I meant.

Uh, I think having an anniversary party when the hubs has passed on is a a little creepy. Just sayin'

Good luck on the CS and whatever else you got cooking.

Yeah, the anniversary party is wrong and creepy. If it was presented as a memorial party for you FIL, that would be one thing, but.....

I'm dying to know what your appt. is about!!! I think I know, but I'll keep my mouth shut.

YAY on the neighbors!!!! Woo hoo!

I got disk one of Felicity in the mail today. NO LAUGHING!

at 11:33 PM Blogger Nicole said...

Hmmm...Why do I have a feeling I know what tomorrowa appointment is about?! I guess I will have to wait and see if I am right.

You always have all of my good thoughts and prayers my love.

Ummm... Can I come to the anniversary party? :)

at 11:34 PM Blogger Shell said...

Don't freaking TEASE me like that...what the heck? Now I can't work tomorrow 'cause I'll just be checking your blog and wondering. Child support, doctor appointments...the anticipation is killing me!!

You should go get a new car when they reduce your child support and drive around her block a bazillion times JUST TO PISS HER OFF...but I'm a bitch like that...

And yeah...the anniversary thing is a little creepy.

I love Gilmore Girls...I haven't been able to watch the last season or two because of school and all.

at 9:36 AM Blogger aka_Mer said...

Well... umm.... I do like the Golden Girls too.

just caught this post this morning.

good prayers for both things.

The Pup.

Hey there! Happy vibes on your appt, I think I have a guess.

WTF is up with the MIL? Interesting.

at 12:26 PM Blogger The Recovering Straight Girl said...

That's weird about the party.

Hope the appointment goes well.

I hate court.

That is all.

at 12:38 PM Blogger Bart said...

That is a weird ass party for sure.

at 1:09 PM Blogger Carrie said...

Okay, that party does sound like it would be a bit of a downer. Never heard of one like that before.

Good luck with both things. You better get your ass out here and tell us how everything went as soon as possible! :)

at 1:31 PM Blogger Jennifer said...

I'm sending good vibes on both things....

at 2:20 PM Blogger Tammy said...

Good luck girl!!

Let us know.

A party to celebrate becoming a widow?

...I just don't know what else to say...that's just...not right...

New here by way of Liberal Banana and having lots of fun. Speaking of fun, attending an anniversary party for one half of a couple does not sound . . . fun. What do you bring for a "gift?" One half of a salt and pepper shaker set? "Hers" towels? The first season of "The Newlyweds?" Although, now that I think about it, the blog possibilities are endless. Can't wait to read all about this party.

~~~~~~**Good Luck Vibes**~~~~~~

Yup, your MIL is fucking insane.
