True to form, the day didn't turn out like it was supposed to. We were supposed to have the court hearing today and when we got there at 9:30 this morning we were informed that it had been continued until Oct 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It jacks me to no end how unorganized this court system is in Butler County. Nobody let us know about the hearing being moved to another date and it really ticks me off. We spent a pile of money to get here for today and we sat at the courthouse for hours also because nobody could give our attorney solid information to get another immediate hearing lined up. The poor woman had to keep making the same phone calls while the admins kept changing the rules. I could never be an attorney. Too much bullcrap.
But anyway - Finally! Finally - late this afternoon all parties were lined up and another hearing is scheduled for tomorrow morning. I was so flippin' furious.
Oh, and I find it so odd that everyone else knew the hearing was continued. So why is it so frickin hard to let the most interested party know? Or at the very least let our attorney know? HELLO...........
But anyway, it was so very frustrating, but I am happy to say that Ronnie came to the supposed hearing with us and he and Kevin had a great time playing "Saving Private Sheep" on the iPad for hours. Thank you, Chalkie! Kevin loves that game and it really makes a person think hard! He does so well too!
So, it was so wonderful to see Ronnie again and I can't tell you how much I appreciated him coming to give me a hand with Kevin while I did what needed to be done. I'm tellin' ya Lori - if you are reading the blog - you have one heckuva kid there! You and Ron should be so proud of him!
After that, the three of us went to lunch and then Kevin and I went to visit my old place of employment. Kevin walked in and said his 'surprise' and we probably visited a good hour or so. It was so great seeing everyone. I miss it all so much; my life and my friends.
And we followed that with a healthy little nap and then we got up and went to dinner with a bunch of friends. I think I can safely say that we all had a blast. I have to admit that I was worried about there being a bunch of people (and kids) all at one table, but Kevin rocked it! Here is a photo of us (minus LuAnn who had to leave early):
Something cool happened there too - Kevin kept staring at the waitress and he finally talked to her and he knew her from school. He remembered her and she knew who he was too and it was so nice to see them BS a bit.
And last, but not least, we went into the mall and Kevin went his way and my friend Diane and I went our way. When we met up with Kevin about a half hour or 45 mins later he had done some shopping. He got himself a couple of pairs of jeans (correctly sized too) and a shirt and a cd. You would all be amazed at the cognitive difference in him since the plate is in. It has helped immensely having the iPad too. He has a bunch of apps that really make him think.
So now I need to get a bath and get to bed. We have another long day tomorrow...
(Miss you, Breezy! Sorry I didn't have time to talk to you much today! Love you!)
