My relationship with PITA has been interesting. We had the nice weekend. He told me he wanted me to think about the boundaries of our relationship. Not entirely sure I get the idea of that. I think most of the things I want are pretty straight forward. I want honesty. No lies and no secrets! I want someone who is my partner and not another child. I do not want someone whom I have to clean up after! These are two of my main ideas. Otherwise I am not sure. It seems as though PITA has changed but how he has changed I am not sure. I will have to get to know him again. It will be interesting to date the man you are married to. Did I ever mention my life is complicated? :)
Work...I really like my work and I have been learning a lot. So far they have been gracious in letting me telecommute and other things to make my childcare situation work. I am thankful. I do not want to lose my job. Also, I just got health insurance! Now at least we are medically covered!
I spoke to a lawyer and found out he is interested in my case against the DDD. The situation they caused worries me because I am concerned over how many other families has the case worker hurt by reporting a family to CPS! The problem is the lawyer wants $8,000 to take on the case. The paralegal I spoke to said they had recently tried and won a similar case for a lot of money but the lawyer would not take the case without the retainer. I wish there was some way to convince him otherwise. Or I had the money. Maybe find another lawyer? Not sure where to look though. If anyone has any ideas I would LOVE to hear it! I really want to pursue this case!
