Seriously!!!???

On top of financial worries, dh's accident (see chit chat thread for today), and threatening text messages, I just found out my father needs open heart surgery in the near future.  No specific plans yet but probably September some time.  My brother has 3 weeks off school then so he can be around to help but he doesn't drive (too many DUIs-went to rehab, doing fabulously, can drive again in November)  so I need to be around to play chauffer and be moral support for my mom.  When it rains, it pours...

Hugs Ami!!! I know this is the last thing you need on your plate right now. Take a deep breath, and make a plan now for menu plans, your work schedule if you know it, kids sports schedules, etc. so that you can work in a bit of time each day or every few days for yourself and have a plan to execute it all. It will help cut down on your stress levels overall to have some things in place ahead of time. And we are all here for you whatever you need, to vent, talk, etc. And good luck with your father's surgery!!

Thanks Tracy! I like your plan ahead ideas. I could easily double a recipe or two a week between now and then and have the freezer stocked. Megan's swimming carpool is great about filling in if someone has a personal issue. Those pieces of the puzzle should be fine. I told my boss this afternoon (happened to run into he when I was covering the desk) and she said to take whatever time I need. Only bad thing is I'm paid hourly so I won't get paid for the time I'm gone. Least of my worries right now.

I spoke to my father this afternoon and he said nothing was scheduled but it would be before the end of the year. Guess I'll put it on the back burner untilnI know more...

I'm so sorry to hear that! Obviously the accident and surgery are very stressful, but what is up with those messages?!?!  Yikes!? Is the company stepping in to help? Do you need to go any further? What a week!!

The officer responding to the accident instructed dh to send a message to the ex-employee instructing I'm not to contact dh by any means ever again. He's sent additional messages. Dh has forwarded all messages to the company lawyer and has screen shots of all of them. Dh is doing everything by the book, documenting everything, and not responding to the guy at all. Company helping, I'm out of the house at the slightest excuse and the doors are always locked when we're home (not
our usual MO).

Sorry :smileysad: That sounds really stressful! It must be hard to kind of be "looking over your shoulder." I hope everything gets resolved soon and you guys can go back to your normal life!
