Well It Was Almost a Good Day

I was on the verge of having a pretty decent day. I was beginning to be full of hope. Let me fill you in. Despite having to work all day traveling approximately 160 miles I got home around 3:30. Despite being tired, I actually cleaned the house in anticipation of my cousin coming over for dinner and a movie. Out of the blue I get a call from Marty. Quite unexpected, but pleasant none-the-less. He had to come to Walmart in town to get a lint brush for his uniform. (He only gets a signal in town.) We only chatted for a few minutes, but it felt "normal". He's starting to sound like the old Marty again. I know he's still stressed and all, but I'm trying to be understanding and give him space as needed. I started re-reading "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus." I read a few years ago and thought it was interesting but this time it's starting to make more sense as Marty is definitely from Mars.
So my cousin came over and I made dinner. (Cashew Chicken and it was very tasty TYVM)
We watched the movie "Love Actually". I hadn't seen it. But I loved it. It was a kind of feel good, chick flick movie that I needed. So I'm in a hopeful mood. Things are looking up. Perhaps I was just going through a phase or something.

Then the shit hits the fan so to speak. I've been trying to get information about Josh's dad and the situation with child support. I finally get a response from his soon to be ex-wife. It's not promising. Turns out that his probation officer in DFW area doesn't want his case any more. I didn't realize that one could simply do that. I don't know the reasoning behind it. But because he also has charges from this county he's being forced to move up here. Yes, that's right. He's moving here. I'm not worried about him being in the area, per se, because he is not allowed to have contact with me. But this means he's probably out of a job and I can say good-bye to any hopes of child support any time soon. This means I'm going to either have to get a second job or go back to teaching. So much for needing a new car. I'm going to have to try to figure out how to cut expenses. There's really not much more that I can cut.

Is it possible to ever just have a really nice day?

Wouldn't that be fabulous? I don't remember the last time I had a really nice day. Pretty pathetic isn't it? My thoughts are with you.
