You could finally take me up on my offer! You never said yes...but you never said no Tongue

Really, though, that sounds like an awesome opportunity. Hope it works out for you. Heart

It would involve a bit of US travel from time to time. Conventions and such.
Though that would only be to Huston, Dallas and maybe LA. The travel is more Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and Australia.

Muffs in Dallas? Thumbsup

I'm not saying I want to die a slow death from botulism, but if Italy can make their olive jars easy to open, why can't Texas make their jars that user friendly?

Probably because everything is supposed to be bigger in Texas, including muscles or maybe they expect Texans to shoot the jar.

RE: Ranting corner
So like... I got the job. A job that I think is actually better than my dream job (dream job being a stockbroker. Obviously owning my own business is my primary goal/dream but as far as jobs, working for someone else, stockbroker would have been my top pick. But this job is actually better so...). It's all pretty surreal to be honest and nothing has been signed yet, it's all in words, so I'm not as excited as I should be because I know from past experience not to get excited until you sign along the dotted line. But...

RE: Ranting corner
Had a bomb dropped on me this morning by my ex-husband. He's getting married next year apparently and he and his fiancee are buying a house roughly 85 miles away from Waco. They are going to close on it at the end of next month.

So basically he proposed that the kids come live with him and I could get them every weekend (and he would *so generously* drive them out to Waco to me every weekend) and then for a month and a half during the summers and then holidays we'd split like normal.

(For reference, our arrangement as-is is joint physical custody with me getting them a week, and then him getting them a week, and so on and so forth)

Needless to say this upset me. Our decree states that the children are to live within two specified counties in Texas and if he moved them, it'd be violating the decree. And even more importantly, the kids are stressed enough as it is when they visit him for just a week at a time. How much worse would it be if they were with him damn near ALL the time?

I told him no way, no how. I would never agree to their being moved that far and them losing so much time with me (the one semi-healthy environment they have). Shockingly, he has said that he understands and could we reverse the proposed arrangement and he get the kids every weekend, etc.?

I've gotta talk it over with the kids and get their thoughts on the whole thing. It'll mean a new "old" school yet again because I am not moving to the district they are currently in (which sucks because my daughter seems to really like it there), and it'll mean a tighter budget for me, Rev, and the kids than I had originally anticipated, but I gotta say, this could be really great for everyone.

Heh, this is turning out not to be such a rant after all. But when my ex dropped that news on me, it fucked up my morning something awful.

Anyway, Rev and I are now wondering what the catch is to my ex so easily agreeing to losing much of his visitation time. Consider

Literally or figuratively?

Sounds like problem solved to me.

side note, I see why you don't move to Merryland now. Didn't know Rev was dating a baby-mamma.

I can answer that.
Children are a pain. They're small, they have big heads, they're loud and have no space awareness.
So it becomes simple math. Spend time with someone who's gonna give you a bj or spend time with someone who's gonna give you a headache.

Sounds like you're the one who'll have to make the drive back and forth every weekend now. That may be the catch.

I hope it all works out for you! Hug

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I don't think you two can alter the terms of the custody decree. The court has to approve the change. Consider
