Gimme Shelter

"If I don't get some shelter, I'm gonna fade away."

Thank you Rolling Stones.

I know I haven't posted in awhile. It seems that life totally got away from me over the last few months. We've all suffered from the flu and colds, I got a promotion at work -- our small OB/GYN practice is joining a very large ultra-mega-medical conglomerate. It's been interesting to say the least.

I feel overwhelmed and defeated by housework. Seems I just can't concentrate on work and the kids and keep the house clean and lawn mowed. Plus, the ex, WAM, has decided to take me to court in a week to adjust child support. Which is fine. Sean is going to be 18, so that's understandable. But I still insist on WAM splitting medical bills, which can be considerable because Sean has asthma and is on medication for generalized anxiety disorder. As long as Sean as in school, I think WAM should help pay, but who knows. Maybe the judge will think I take that money and buy Anne Klein clothes. I guess I'll just have to let him have a look in my closet!!

Court and I don't get along. I was only in court get divorced....and all I remember is shaking and crying. I'm much stronger now (thank you Anne, for reminding me) but court is still intimidating. Oh well, just another speed bump in my life.

Hope you are all doing well....hopefully will be back on more consistently again this summer. I miss reading all your great blogs!!

You have completely forgotten the lyrics to that Johnny Mercer song, "Accentuate the Positive." It's not that your little practice is merging with a conglomerate. It's that you are successfully shepherding your staff of 15+ through this uncertain time! That's just as worthy of mention as your messy home, you know.

I'm thinking good thoughts for you. Remember that the judge is a person just like yourself!

Good luck!!!
