I wanted to apologise to my team mates, and co leaders for how sporadic I have been on. We have so much going on in our lives right now. It seems as though there's not a minute that is not totally taken up. We have been fighting with our mortgage company for two years, My second son is going through a nasty divorce. His soon to be x is causing us more trouble than anyone could ever imagine, and the 27th of July a drunk driver with no Insurance totaled our business truck.
The mortgage company has jacked us around for two years over a variable rate. Stealing around 3.000.00 from us. They will never get it right, So this past weekend we moved out. Not really what we wanted to do. We had just put 18,000.00 into our home before all of this started, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
My soon to be x daughter-in-law wont follow court orders as far as the grand kids. She has been in contempt of court four, or five times. Wont let my son have the kids on his days. Makes us have to involve the police to get the kids. Calls the police, or child protection every time we do have them. Saying there's no food, unfit living conditions, and anything else you can imagine. Has done things like call the building inspector, saying we're working on electric, or plumbing without permits, Calling code enforcement. Which in the long run will work in our favor, and all ready is, but it's just a hassle. We are in and out of court like a yo-yo. The court this last time assigned a lady to check things out and give the court her opinion as to what would be best for the boys. The way she talks my son will get his kids, if they can be found cause DIL up and moved without letting anyone know.
Then the 27th a drunk driver hits our truck that was parked in front of our home. Totals the truck, and has no insurance. Our business insurance paid only the balance owed on our truck, not quite 4,000.00 gave us 1,000.00, and was done. I'm having them investigated. They paid for nothing. Legal limit is .08, She blew a .22. This is the fourth time this has happened. Where a drunk driver has smashed our business truck, and we have always come out ok. With enough to get another truck. We do intend on taking her to court. For now she has put us right out of business.
Now please don't get me wrong. I really am not complaining. Things could be a whole lot worse. I know everything happens for a reason, and I whole hearted believe everything will all work out in time. It's just with everything that is going on, I have no time. I do intend to be back in full force, and hopefully soon. I know what I can do on this sight, and can't wait to get back. So please be patient while I'm in, and out taking care of life. With all this going on I'm sure I have put some weight back on, but have been afraid of my scale. LOL
Love, and miss ya all Donna

    Donna - my heart goes out to you and my prayers are definitely with you and your family. You have been through A LOT! Your attitude is so good and you know things will get better. I hope you are able to find the grandkids soon - the xDIL sounds very unstable and probably not the best for your kids. Anyway, we are here for you and we'll help you get back on track!
