In other news, an update I sent to some old friends of mine last weekend:
My son started 4th grade..
Tons of homework and he hasn’t even had a full week yet! LOL
It’s gonna be an exciting year.
Going to a railroad festival today. Should be fun! ;)
Since I missed the Heartland Pagan Festival this year, I’m making up for it by going to the Gaea Goddess Gathering.. hopefully the weather will cooperate. ;) I don’t want it to be too hot!! It’s in september, though. This weekend is gorgeous. Highs in the upper 70’s lower 80’s. Amazing for Kansas!! (wonder when people will start realizing that Global Warming isn’t what they think it is.. LOL)
Got a part time job… http://www.wvweather.net
I didn’t design it, but I did put it into a Content Management System so he can do his own work and control it himself without having to pay someone to do it. He still owes me 800 but he was a Vietnam Vet and we figured out a payment plan. Nice enough guy .. most of the time. He’s extremely bi-polar… I’ve stopped answering the phone and have told him to just email me so I can ignore when he gets into… a not very good state of mind.. If it works out, he’s going to host my site http://www.2bitsabyte.com and I’ll give him 10 hours per month of free coding work! ;) Pretty good deal… for both of us!! *grin*
I’m ready for football and cooler weather. ;)
Thorik and I are doing great.. and I guess that since our Facebook and MySpace pages say married (since they don’t have a handfasted option) apparently that makes us married in the state of Kansas. We are gonna fix our insurance and save money. I guess taxes might be interesting next year…. he’s starting college next month. ;) I’m very proud of him.
My ex is not doing well. He never went back to being active. He has 3 children with the wife after me and has 2 more with his current wife. Because of his temper, he caused his current wife to lose her other 6 children. Yes. The little lady (and she is TINY) has had 8 children. Ouch. My ex is now working at Walmart. My son is still living with me (and has been since Jan 2007) and that’s wonderful! He’s been so much more healthy than he ever was with the Tracy-bitch.
Tracy-bitches’ lies still affect me but only indirectly now. I don’t talk to her. I let my son text and talk to his sister, but that’s pretty much it. My son sent Tracy a happy birthday wish earlier this month. Tracy-bitch has told my ex that I’m talking to her all the time now.. and I’m not.. but that works to my benefit. I don’t have to hear about the hell anyone is going thru!! Her lies are actually helping me!! LOL If my ex wanted to ask, I could prove, I’m sure, that I’m not corresponding with her in any way, but.. they apparently aren’t going to bother.
They are losing their big apartment and moving into a mobile home. I am going to store their SCA and Halloween stuff (as if I could say no!! ) and can use both until they get back on their feet. I’m pretty excited about that. My ex always has the coolest Halloween stuff. ;) I think he still has his pavilion.. *grin* Yes, dear, of course we have room! We’ll make room!! Thorik supports this 100% because his favorite holiday is *gasp* Halloween and he does SCA a lot!! (More than I have lately.. but fighter practice is during the week.. go figure)
