Ok.I have thankfully regained my composure enough to clarify my earlier post.Actually,I am both surprised and proud of this gain.The opposite(QUITE) seemed to be happening for a while,but I think survivor mode has been resurrected,dusted off and joined my in - progress auto pilot.(Thank you for your thoughts<3)

Due to being so sick,Kade had been inconsolable for the past 5 or so hrs(musta jinxed myself when I touted his near perfection?) and I am thinking to myself,repetitive mantra like,"I can do this".This day,this period,this sh*t,this haze,whatever.In the midst of my positive self soothe,Dustin and our neighbor kid Andy come piling in the door( about 35 mins after I expected him).

Dustin stayed after school for extra help with some other kids.While chatting with one after session,a third came up&told Dustin to "shut up-no one wanted to hear him" and that if he did not,he'd "kill him".Dustin replied,"Why don't YOU shut up?" to a kid physically as big as me,only heavier.Next thing you know he is pounded in the face,remembers hitting the floor and Andy walks him home 30-40 mins later.

Naturally,I am furious.Call the school.Get the school nurse Dusty couldn't find because she is doubling as the receptionist!Apparently no one is available because they are all in hoity toity meetings welcoming the new middle school principal.No calls are returned.I am 'invited to call tomorrow'.So,onward&upward....no luck finding a listing with this hooligans last name.

As a last resort,I called the cops.They took our statements,were going to interview the witnesses Dustin named,nose around the school and try to locate the parent.I say parent in the singular because this angry kids dad is in jail on child molestation charges.

So,he is drowsy and sore but his spirit has taken a harsh beating as well.I am worried on several fronts as he is supposed to be studying for 3 finals tonite.I am trying to have some perspective in this dang family and not let worry be a lifestyle.Failing.

Maybe instead of "Lifestyles of the Rich&Famous"(remember that?) it can be dubbed "Lifestyles of the Poor&Insane"........Jim came home long enough to hear the days events in brief and head back out to work.Ok:I'll deal-I feel overwhelmed,undersupported,worried,tired,frazzled,fed up,bewildered at the master plan,disgusted at the events of the last few months.And those are the positive ones,LOL!

Whine fest over.

Please keep the boys in your positive thoughts.

Jun. 2, 2008 at 8:56 PM I think you are entitled to a major whine fest (or wine festival).  Hunny, I can't bear to see you this way.  It just sucks!  Ok, the kids going through things is totally understandable, but you should not be handling this alone.  I am so glad you came here, at least you have us.  What does your hub do that is so dang important?  Just tell him I said to get his ass home and stay there.  But would he even know what to do for you?  Clueless, I swear, men are completely put on this earth to procreate.  But you have us.  And I really hope it helps.  Does  Dusty have bruises?  That kid that beat on him will get his due, and good for you, calling the authorities.  That can't continue.  I should stop now, maybe already said to much, but know that you are not alone.  Take care and keep us posted.

You know what?  I think you have every right to feel all those things you listed at the end...don't apologize for any of that.  You have a lot on your shoulders.  

I hope the school steps up today - they sure dropped the ball yesterday!!

Will definitely continue to keep ALL of you in my prayers & always sending you positive thoughts!!!  You're spirit is still alive & well - you're riding these bumps in the road with grace - now if somebody would just pave the damn thing!!! lol!!  {{hugs}}
