One full week of school is behind me! Only 36 more to go! My kids are good. I had one annoying girl. Smart as a whip and wanted to control and debate and disagree with everything. Her schedule was changed so she’s gone. I also have one boy who doesn’t want to do anything but sleep. He’s sneaky, too. He already messed up two laptops by fooling around with the settings. Other than that, I have great kids! And…I plan on working with the sleepy sneak to turn him around.
On the caseworker front, I listened to the recording DS made and this guy does seem fair and approachable. It’s too early to really tell but I think we got a decent one. He wasn’t happy with DS’s visitation and told him to have me work with DIL to set up a more equitable schedule with overnight visits. DS told him the only day he can’t do it is Saturday and the caseworker said that shouldn’t be a problem. I brought the subject up again with DIL and she said he could have them Friday night. I told her that was the only night that wouldn’t work for him because he has to work early Saturdays. I suggested during the week since he only lives a mile from their school. She didn’t seem interested and said to ask him if he wanted to keep them Friday night because she has plans anyway. The old caseworker would have said, “You asked for overnight and she said you could have them Friday. Evidently, you don’t want them or you’d be willing to be flexible.” I have a feeling this caseworker is going to say, “No, he told you that’s the only night that won’t work. You’re going to have to come up with something else.”
Okay, I have to get moving or I’m going to wind up sporting ugly duds today.
