Hell



The ex came yesterday with her mother and father and moved all her crap -- and more -- out of the house.  At one point I wondered out loud if they intended to take the lil one's bed 


Words absolutely fail me ........ I have never in my life encountered such vindictive mean people.

There has to be -- HAS TO BE -- a special place in hell for people like them.......

Finally !





Welllllll it only took 4 weeks after the court order ...... 2 weeks longer than the court ordered -- but the ex wife is coming today to collect all her boxes and furniture!! (over a year since she moved out might I add)  

Sir Steve is staying home till it's over so I don't have to deal with them or their nonsense.  I told him not to worry about me... ME - I would simply unlock the shed, go in the house, and lock the door behind me........... I can be a bitch like that....

BUT the main thing is -- she is finally going to empty our lives of her crap. And that is a very good thing!

Even better thing is .. I am feeling a wee bit better and Sir Steve says he's on the mend too....... Could be a good weekend....... and that would be a wonderful thing!!

UGH!






Yup I'm still down for the count with this bug........ and to make life really interesting Sir Steve messaged me on Friday and said he was coming home cause he now had the 'plague' too 

So needless to say nothing much of interest happened this weekend......

Saturday Sir Steve did manage to make his infamous turkey soup from all the leftovers.......... and it WAS yummy!!



Then Sunday morning I got a phone call from eldest daughter.......  

She was teasing me about my low fitbit scores for the week -- but soon stopped when she found out I was down for the count with fever and aches and pains..... 
Then she told me about Sunday morning brunch her 'man' made for her, complete with chocolate covered strawberries.......... 

AND.......... 

an engagement ring (see this mom smiling from ear to ear?) 



IF I could have selected a husband for her,  I couldn't have picked a better man.  She certainly deserves to be happy .......... 

And now I think I will snuggle under the blankets and binge watch some TV with Sir Steve....... hopefully we'll both surface sooner than later all healed and feeling feisty again !!

'Balconville'



It was almost 6 am and I was sitting out on the balcony watching the sun come up over the roof tops..... watching as lights came on in the windows across the street ..... and I am curious about the neighbours -- about their lives..........

On the far left corner is the strange woman who goes out at night with her red light strapped to her forehead searching the grass around her home -- looking for god only knows what...... 

Beside her is the duplex and the woman who slips out most mornings just before 6am in her pjs and housecoat and goes to pick up 2 cups of Tim Horton's coffee... 

The upper duplex directly across the street from us has two young people living there -- I only really see them early in the morning -- I watch as they get up -- get ready for their day quickly -- the lights go out within minutes....... 

Downstairs from them is the new baby -- and the fighting parents.  On Thanksgiving we watched in shock as the new mom 'clocked' the dad ..... the yelling was unbelievable... there is always yelling from there..... always something strange happening -- like the morning she was running around the front yard in bra and panties screaming at him to get out.  I called 911 on Thanksgiving -- reported a domestic dispute -- I couldn't sit by and watch anymore -- couldn't worry about the wee baby........ 

And the house at the end of the street has a 'grandpa' and his grandson and girlfriend living there.  They have a new kitten who loves to hide under the front steps.  Grandpa broke his arm a few weeks back ..... the white cast gleams in the early morning sunrise as he heads out to work.......

It's quiet at 6 in the morning when the neighbourhood is slowly waking and the sun is rising...........
