exercise in frustration

not a stitch, sigh :(

My caseworker showed up at 6:30 last night, and i found out that if mark and i do couple therapy, as both my and the boys' therapist recommend, we're on our own. the state won't pay for it at all. sigh. apparently she was recommending that mark join us in family therapy, and she still wants us to do it at the house for "intensive family preservation." i still don't know what the hell that means. i'm going to ask the boys' therapist tuesday night, because my therapist is out of town.

the caseworker also didn't know that court was next thursday. she had left early last time, and apparently washington county does not send out notices of hearings. oh well, would have been her loss. i'm glad i did tell her though, because i'm sure all they would have done is postpone it, and i will not have that. i just wish i could understand her better. she has some wacky island (possibly jamaican) accent, and it's so thick she's virtually unintelligible at times, even in person. sigh.

on an up note with this whole mess, she was happy with the house. i took the day off and cleaned all day. steph was a noodge, and didn't get home until just before the caseworker showed up. i had called her to see if she was going to come home and help, and she said "why, you would have stuck me with it all day if you hadn't taken the day off." WHELP! i then sweetly informed her that i'd stayed up til 12 cleaning, and had cleaned the bathroom when i got up. sigh.

You might be a redneck if you regularly check the brake lights on your house.

Pattern of the Day: Elizabeth's Cable Clog Sock. for me, aka the flip flop sock. it's got cables running down the back to the bottom of the heel. definitely an option, with 7 different sock yarns at the moment!

Have a good day!

Minnie...didn't know how else to get back to you. Apparently, the folks at TypePad were working on my blog while you were trying to get in. They claim to have fixed some of the buttons, but I don't know! Not sure I care at this point...have been spending WAY too much time on this. Thanks for the comments, though.
