Vanessa's September Journal

Can I get a good month this year? Geesh! September hasn't started off that great for me but hopefully today was my turning point after the long holiday weekend. Jamie and I have our 5K on the 18th of this month and our cruise is on the 25th so if those two things don't get me motivated - nothing will!

Hey Vanessa, those look like some great goals! I figure September doesn't REALLY start until after the long weekend anyways! ;-)

Tuesday, Sept 6

I didn't get much sleep. Mikaela came in our room around 2:30am and climbed in the bed with me and she was up til almost 4. She's having anxiety now due to the start of middle school followed 3 days later by an earthquake and 3 days after that a hurricane in addition to all the crap her dad is pulling so she's been having dizzy spells and now she's getting a racing heartbeat :-(

We overslept, left late, missed the school bus and I got to work at 9:20. The computers were down anyway - it was just one of those days...

9:30 - coffee w/ 2 creamer, 2 Splenda
10:30 - bagel thin w/ laughing cow cheese, banana
12:30 - 100 cal pack almonds, light string cheese

1:45 - Gym - treadmill Random Level 6 4 mph (5 min warmup, 25 min walk, 5 min cooldown) <39 min, 234 cal burned>

Left work early at 4 to get Mikaela from aftercare...

6 - Pringles chips while helping kids with homework/getting dinner ready
6:45 - Whole grain pasta w/ alfredo sauce, turkey kielbasa, mixed veggies
8:30 - Fiber One 90 calorie brownie

Water - 80 oz

Your Tuesday sounds horrible! Your poor daughter - I hope she settles back into the routine of normal life quickly! I can't believe you got a workout in on a day like that - awesome!

Vanessa, I'm so sorry Mikaela is having such a hard time. Does your ex realize the stress he is putting on his own children? What a king-sized a$$. I hope Mikeala is okay. You had a pretty awesome day eating & workout wise considering all that you're dealing with right now!

Vanessa, is there any way you could apply for full-custody at this point? Has your ex answered for any of the things he has said to Mikaela or Devon? I am sick that you and the kids are having to deal with this, and considering all the natural disasters you've also been through, it is just added stress you don't need. Has anythign changed recently to make him behave this way?

I'm sending you some positive vibes and hugs as you go through this!

Vanessa... (((HUGS)))

I can just hear the heartache in your post! I'm so sorry you are going through this! Your poor children - I feel for all of you! I hope the counselor can help you with this asap and get you back to calm.

Is your ex concerned or just trying to blame it on you? I hope the counselor can have a "come to jesus" straightening out with your ex and get him to realize what he is doing. Can you file for emergecy full custody over something like this?
