The Midwest got hit by a huge snow storm. But I brave it to Barnes and Noble because I just HAD to have Coach Nicole's DVD's. Well I have my fitness all planned for the week 10 min Cardio 5 days a week and 7 days of strength training. Yeah i had a Plan. And then a Personal Whammy hit.
I have guardianship of my oldest grandchild. I have raised her from birth and she knows that I am really Grandma but she considers me her mom and her reall mom(my daugther) as Ally. Because I am her guardian of her and I love my grandsons to death. I would go to great lengths for them. As Angel's guardian I am a Mandatory reporter of suspected child endangerment, abuse & neglect. After been told that my soon to be ex-son in law goes over to his best friends house every weekend, with Angel in tow on Sunday visitation. I became concerned. I know that when Angel was a baby he would bring the SIL over to visit and both were higher than kites. I heard 3 times that this same best friend cooks Meth. I don't care if he does it when the kids are not there, Meth is Meth. So I called CPS. I told both my daugther and the SIL that I called, I was a mandatory reporter.
I told SIL that I was advised to not let him have the kids until he proves to CPS that the kids are never near any drug activity. Yes he was in tears. I know he is the better of the two of them but drugs are drugs. Drugs can = guns in the home and or violence. None of I am willing to risk the kids for. CPS said even though he has a court ordered visistation setup that as her guardian I could be held liable if drugs were found and I let Angel be there.
So while Angel's mom was at Vocational College, he sent his folks out to pick up the car they had let her use. She admitted that she was happy I called and wanted me too.The war is on. Yelling, throwing phones. accussations that I was made to call. No I had to call. Well to bring things to a head. I now have my 18 year old, my 7 year(Angel) and a 5 & a 3 year old staying at "Nonnie's" sometimes I am called "mommie" by the boys.
Needless to say this has through a major whammy in my goals, my plans and my life. I want the kids safe but I need me time, I am going to try and take the last couple days until WID Sunday and push all the fitness I can in. It won't be like I planned but the babies need me to be around for them.
I am posting this here because this is the only place I can vent, ask for a shoulder and get one. I will get though this WHAMMY even if it become a permament thing. I will not give up nor will I give in.
