*hulk smash*

This is a stupid, petty little rant, but I need to get it out:

I fucking hate co-parenting sometimes.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I bought tickets for the family to go see Rogue One tonight. I bought these tickets like two weeks ago as part of the kids’ Christmas countdown activities. We made a point of telling the kids about it ahead of time so that they could tell the other parents about it. We wanted to avoid having them see it twice in a short period of time. Both of the other parents are big Star Wars fans, so this was a good possibility. I even told my ex about it personally, because I knew I couldn’t rely on children to relay information.

So what happens? Both kids told us when we spoke to them this weekend that they had seen the movie with the other parents. Okay fine. I can still work with that. But…it gets better! My ex called earlier to tell me something unrelated and happened to mention that he took Jackson to see it twice this weekend. Fucking twice. When he knew we had tickets to go see it tonight!

That’s just such a dick move, in my opinion. He just shit all over my fucking plans. I paid like fifty fucking dollars for these tickets, and there is no way Jackson is going to want to see it a third time in as many days. I don’t blame him. Ugh I’m just so (admittedly probably irrationally) angry about this and I want to shit all over something that is important to him just to be an asshole.

Fuckity fuck fuck fuck you so fucking hard. Grrr.

 

sad but determined 

I’m finally coming to terms with something I’ve suspected for a long time: I’m almost certain my kid has ADHD. It’s hard to ignore the obvious symptoms any longer, as it’s negatively affecting his life. It’s time to take action. I hope his school and doctor will make this easy on us. 

*happy saturday*

  1. My knee is so swollen. The pain was so intense yesterday, that even after various pain pills, I was lightheaded and nauseous.  It’s better today, but still pretty fucked.  Despite this, I did #30DS Level 3, because I was getting depressed after two days of not working out.
  2. Even though he will not see it, I want to give a shout out to my ex for bringing Jackson to me yesterday when I told him about my knee. I’m lucky I have such a good parenting relationship with him. The few divorced people I know are not as lucky. He’s a good guy, and a great dad.  Despite everything, we are getting along, and I am thankful for that.
  3. I’m back on Livejournal. (just_jenn2011 for now. I’m thinking a name change is in order or maybe I should go back to the original blog: lawgirljenn?) A friend reached out to me the other day and was like we miss you over here, and so I logged in yesterday (during my bed rest). It’s good to catch up, and to have a more private space to write in from time to time.
  4. Danielle is doing 30 Day Shred now. I’m hoping my knee improves so I can get over there to join her. Workout buddies are the best.
  5. Ann brought me dinner and ice cream last night. She’s the best bestie ever. <3
  6. Tonight Jackson and I have a dinner date with itsjustcarrie and we are quite excited.

how is it already sunday?

  1. How is the weekend almost over?  Friday night I was in bed by 10 pm and I slept for ten hours. It was glorious. It would have been longer, but Saturday morning I took Jax to meet up with his dad at the comic book store for Free Comic Book Day.  I stood in a line for almost an hour so my kid could get some crappy free comics with his dad and feel cool. Parenting win. 
  2. I’m so over wearing the compression garment. It’s driving me fucking crazy. And I’m way ready to start wearing a bra again. Oh and I’m ready to run.  I’m also ready to get back to yoga. Recovering from surgery sucks.  If my plastic surgeon recommends another fat grafting I think I’m going to say no. Fuck this shit.  Besides, I’m running out of fat.  Okay, I’m done whining now.
  3. The boobs are still looking quite excellent, btw.  Looks like this round of fat grafting was a success.  Cleavage is the one good thing I got from breast cancer. 
  4. Last week I was using my space heater at the office, and today I’m bitching because it’s a touch too hot. I get like a week of weather I like per year.  At least it’s almost warm enough to swim.
  5. Jackson won’t stop singing Let It Go. It’s both adorable and annoying. 
  6. The bestie and I are going to Columbia on Tuesday night to see Tegan & Sara for her b-day. So excited! I want to go to Trops and Flat Branch. 
  7. Now I’m off to swallow 6 pills of Methotrexate and 1 folic acid. I don’t want to, but my right knee is swollen to the point where walking is difficult, so I guess it’s time to get back to it.
