The Wheels of Justice need WD40....

Tomorrow is Probate Court day.


I like odd numbers, and I hope that date is a sign of the numbers coming up well for me.

As you may know, this has been a long process made longer by bureaucratic bullshit and apathy on the parts of the courts. And it continues. I just got off the phone with the court appointed guardian ad litem for my stepson, who called me to go over all of the stuff we've discussed three times already. He then ended the conversation by asking me for the telephone number and address for my stepson's mother, which he should already have. I don't have her info, the bitch won't talk to me. She's probably off somewhere being a good christian woman.

Tomorrow is an important day. His will has to be legally probated. It has been almost 6 months since Greg died and I need the letters of testamentary that only the court can provide. I need these letters to show that I am the executor of the estate and that I can receive the stock dividends from his company. I need these letters to get the money that will help me pay this house note before Bank of America kicks me out on my ass. Apparently the government's new help a homeowner plan doesn't apply to those of us who have been in good standing for years but just need a bit of help when they become a destitute widow while waiting for the wheels of justice to squeak to life. I also need this money to pay the hospital where Greg died that keeps calling and asking for him and his wallet. (HEY BROOKWOOD? Might want to make a note on your paperwork that the man died in your facility !!! You should have lifted his cash then.) And of course there are utilities and health insurance and blah blah blah things that have to be taken care of, and I am about at the end of my pennies.

I can't get any help from anyone because according to my house payment and other bills I should be making more money. Well no shit. My husband brought home more in a week than I do in two months. I only work part-time, and believe me, I have been trying to get a full-time job since all this went down! When we had his income our bills were "justified." Oh and I guess him dying and it being left all up to me is "unjustified"? Got to love the bureaucrats. I get looked down upon because my husband wanted me to spend more time with him and at home and not work as much, so I did, and a year later he dies and now I'm lazy.


So Lady Justice, put on your Nikes or Asics or whichever shoes make you feel like getting up and moving, and please please please grab the attorneys and the judges and the ad lit-ems and anyone else involved, and shake shake shake senora down to my hard wooden courthouse seat and give me my paperwork!!!

If you don't I might be living in a box underneath your pedestal.

You can always come live with us. I'm sure Teddy & Beaux would love to taste the 5 cats one by one... heh.

I really hope it all works out tomorrow. I'll be keeping positive vibes for you.

I wish there was something I could do to help, Kim.

You're between a rock and a hard place and it's not your fault.

I know this may sound distasteful, but consider filing for bankruptcy. It would at least allow you to get back on your feet.

Pleas know that you are in my thoughts, every day.

I am there for you every step of the way. I hope that bitch gets NOTHING, which is what she deserves, and you get what you deserve. TRL is right-while distasteful, it IS something to consider if things don't go your way tomorrow. Prayers of peace for you dear friend. I wish I could do more for yoo.((HUGS))

Girlfriend, I will personally drive over there and help you kick some legal ass if you need it. And I've got a downstairs "in-law" suite with your name on it if worse comes to worse.

Seriously. You just give me a shout.
