First thing this morning I had to call child support services. I have not received a payment in a very long time, and I noticed that a big chunk of what he owes was gone! The nice lady on the other end of the phone informed me that it does take a few days for the web to be updated, and that they got my ex's tax check. The check was just over a grand!
Then I called my state case worker and he is still trying to figure everything out. However if I do end up in the hospital my medi cal will kick in with no co pay. To me this is a huge blessing because I am not sure what I am going to do about all these tumors anyway!
I then called and made an appointment to get new glasses. Yep. I am taking all that back child support and spending some of it on me. I so need new glasses and I have been putting it off for just over a year now.
I got up this morning and I was wondering how I was now going to feed a family of 7. Yep we went from a family of 5 to a family of 6 and now we are a family of 7! One of the marines took leave, and she is spending two weeks here. I don't mind except I know that she can't pitch in for food.
So I packed up my dog and we went down to the lake. While we were down there a man asked us if we wanted a bass. He had just caught it, and was not going to eat it. Hell yes I want that fish. I am adding that to my dinner table!
So above is the picture of me cleaning a fish. My girls would never touch it. I did not have a sharp enough knife, so I did the best I could. I am use to chopping the head and tail off and then gutting it. Nope I don't own I knife that sharp. So I just gutted it and baked it up.
I am so glad that my dad taught me how to do certain things! Thanks dad.
Life is good.
