Today is Halloween and it is my favorite holiday.  My favorite cousin is in the hospital for some sort of complication to breast feeding.  She and I are very close but since she had the baby she has been moody and I suspect that the infection has something to do with that as well as our family history of PPD. 

I can't go see her because my car is nearly kaput and where is that settlement money.  It hasn't been released yet.  The lawyer said they might have to go back to court to get it released.  What?  aren't they in contempt or something if they don't release the money the court said they had to pay? 

Just venting.  Just not a good day for me.

So sorry to hear about your cousin, I hope she is feeling better soon.

Will you get trick or treaters coming by to cheer you up?

I hope your cousin is on her way to recovery by now, and I hope she'll be getting some help for the PPD as well.

What a pita with the settlement money.  Why do there have to be so many hoops to jump thru?

Thanks Vegiemama,

My cousin went home on Friday.  I took her home.  I was able to get the car going again and went to visit her Thursday and then again on Friday.  While I was there they said she could go home so I took her home.  I saved her hubby from having to pack up a three week old baby. 

I'm still waiting on the money.  Now they are telling us that the routing number for our bank is incorrect.  Our bank, the lovely people they are, gave us the routing number for any type of transfer they desire to do.  I'm rolling my eyes at that.  Just another delay.  Meanwhile, I'm walking in the rain to get my mother's heart medication.  Now I think I've caught something and I'm sure it was from walking in the rain.  It wasn't supposed to rain.  It didn't even look like rain when I left and it was hot when I left.  Then it rained and I was freezing.  The temperature took a serious drop.  I've seriously been cold ever since Sunday. 

I'm just glad I can post again.  I kept getting that annoying error page when I would try to log in and it wouldn't let me log in so I couldn't post. 

My lawyer says it is all a stalling tactic by the mtg company and they have to pay and they have to pay in a certain number of days.  I think he said it was 90 from the day the decision was made.  We are halfway through that now.  He says they will be fined if they don't pay by then.

Ugh Karen, those stalling tactics stink.  The name of the game is "screw the small guy".  Same thing happened with my stepson's settlement.  Took him forever to get his money Cry
