The Eve

November 4, 2008

After my cell phone company told me I could only retrieve text messages with a subpoena, I transcribed them into a document which included every date and time (from the journal I’ve been keeping) I’ve tried to get Rooferman to discuss a parenting plan in the past year and emailed them to Lawyerdude. He responded with “Its all hearsay, but sometimes the Judge will allow you to present it. I would bring it to court and see what happens.”

Hopefully the Judge will allow me to submit my document as evidence that I’ve made an honest effort to agree on a parenting plan, but Rooferman has been uncooperative, inconsistent,  has failed to show up and refuses to meet with me alone.

As of today, no parenting class has been completed and submitted to court by Rooferman, but I’ve heard through the grapevine that the class is now offered ONLINE (which theoretically could mean Blondie or any other human on this planet could complete the parenting class FOR him). I recieved the signed receipt from the certified letter I sent to him this weekend. The name on the card is one I don’t recognize, which makes me wonder how many people are actually living at Blondie’s house.

As hugely dramatic as my life seems right now, I have to stop and remember there is something so much bigger going on. Today is the last day of “W.” After tonight, we will have a new president, and a canyon in history will be crossed. How ironic that this momentous occasion falls so close to my own day of judgement. Saturn and Uranus are at odds, and its obvious. I’ve felt the electricity, hostility and anger of those two entities in the past week, and its all coming to a head in the next 24 hours.

LB is staying with her Grandma tonight. After Rooferman fails to show up tonight, and I get tapped by hippie counselor, I’m immersing myself in the election. I’m letting the excitement, hope and anticipation take me on whatever ride it decides. I’m letting go of the pain, fear and shame of my country’s past, but also my own past, and facing the future, whatever that may be. I’ve decided that what happens tomorrow really isn’t up to me. I’ve done my part. I’ve cast my ballot, done my research, prepared my case, prayed for guidance and courage, and sucked in as many good vibrations as possible.

On this eve of major universal and personal shift, I’m giving up the illusion of control. I will ride this wave into the unknown, and face whatever lies in my future.  Chaos? Turbulence? Struggle? Success? Victory? Justice?

It helps knowing you all got my back. I got yours too.

Peace.

    I’m emailing you my phone numbers in case you need a friend. And while technically, we’ll still have 77 days left of W, I already feel a shift. The healing has already begun.

    Amazing post.

    Letting go of the illusion of control. ARGH, very difficult thing to do.

    I too am excited to follow the election results tonight :0)

    OK, WHAT? Those are text messages sent to you, on a plan YOU pay for. They are your property. Subpeona my ass. I don’t need to present my kitchen a subpeona to get the groceries out of my refrigerator. That’s lame.

    But just writing that made me feel like I was dragging you down a bit, so ignore that part if it makes you feel stressed out.

    Ohio, my home state, has a good past of chosing the president. Let’s hope Ohio chooses wisely tonight.

    SWM- Your “supeona my kitchen” comment actually made me laugh. GREAT VISUAL!

    I’m very curious as to how my home “battleground” state of Colorado turns up in this election as well.

    Good luck tomorrow! That is crazy that they offer a parenting class online. I guess I could see the reason for it but still…Cell phone companies these days- ridiculous!

    I just love election night coverage! Everytime they make a projection. Good times. Have fun tonight.

    Looooove this post! I’m completely caught up in the whirlwind of what today means for the future of America… for the future of the little one(s). I must admit that I’m pretty caught up in your story as well. I can’t wait to hear the outcome of both.

    Yes, a subpoena is in fact needed for the actual TEXTS, but I think you can get a date/time list that you tried to send them as well? Regardless, I am crossing fingers the judge let’s the transcriptions in as evidence.

    Keep your chin up sweets. 🙂

    Off the record, your attorney needs a major refresher course in the rules of evidence. Wow. The text messages are 100% admissible and failure to admit them, to the extent it ends up hurting your case, would be appealable.

    Good luck! And go get ’em.
