That one time... when he says he had a stroke.

My ex is amazing. Like really REALLY amazing. A long while back he told me he had cancer. I knew at the time it was most likely a lie because well... he wouldn't know the truth if it slapped him in the face, stuck out it's hand and introduced itself. The other day he called to tell me he was working again so the child support should start coming in again. Ok. He said he'd been off work because he had gotten hit in the head and had a concussion. Ok. I guess I didn't respond with enough care and concern because suddenly that concussion, it turned into a STROKE... He had a STROKE!!! Ok. The "Ok" you see all along there? Yeah, that was my response to each statement. Frankly, I just don't care. I do have to mention though that if the miserable individual has managed to get kidney cancer AND have a stroke before the age of 37, I really wonder how it is that he keeps getting so lucky to survive such horrible maladies. Good grief! Oh yeah, but then I remember, to be a "survivor" you have to have actually HAD said maladies and we've already established that the truth isn't known to walk up and slap a jerk just before reaching out it's hand to introduce itself so... Yeah.

Back at it...

After three relatively drama free years on the custody front the former decided he wanted more custody of the kids. So he filed for an EMERGENCY hearing. Since there was no emergency, that was denied and we were scheduled for mediation, which is tomorrow.
The thing is that the last time he tried this (in an attempt to get 50/50 custody) he ended up with the current order, which is two hours of supervised visits per week. Want to know how many of those he has used in the last two years or so? THREE. Yep, that's it. But he went to parenting classes so that should be enough right?
I have about 7,000 reasons why he shouldn't have unsupervised access to the kids. I don't anticipate having any trouble whatsoever convincing the mediator the same, but it sure does ruffle our calm world to have to go thru this crap at his whim.
