Sunday Scramble

Today we have Sunday Scramble sponsored by Justine. As you can see, Justine, I couldn't figure out how to get your cute pancake face on my blog, so I grabbed this one off google.

*Divorce Boot Camp:
This is where I was yesterday. Basically a class to sell some lady's book, I think. Actually she gave some very basic, sneaky information, like before you tell your spouse you are leaving, copy 3 years worth of bank statements, paystubs, utility bills, etc... There were some women there that had been separated for 8 years. What? I would have liked to know what there extenuating circumstances were.

*I stopped by Jackass' house after the class to see if oldest was there. She wasn't, but there was a nice pink folder on the counter with a sweet note from Vi with information she had looked up to help him on foreclosure. Seriously, does she need to stick her nose into our business? Of course it was signed "love V" which made me cry. It is funny the things that make me cry because I don't do it all that often.

*One of our houses was in the legal section of the paper this week for foreclosure. Yeah, that kind of hurt and has spurred me on to empty it out. That means many days spent unearthing things, packing things and getting rid of things. Youngest came to the house one day (I have been trying to keep the girls away from seeing me throw stuff away). Her comment, "You are throwing away all my childhood memories!" Trust me, I am not, but that's how she sees it. I don't blame her, you have to adapt a hard ass attitude to go through years of memories and STUFF!

*Good news is my sister is preggers and due in September!!!! She miscarried last winter, but had an ultrasound the other day and saw the little bugger's heart beating! The girls are going to freak when she tells them!!

Thanks Justine for letting me get this scrambled mess out of my head!


  1. You go girl! I'm so sorry the house is going into foreclosure, and it's gotta hurt and I guess feel humiliating to see it in the paper. But, it's all for the greater good. You know that, right?

    Yay about your sister!!!! She must be SO excited!!!

    Justine :o )

  2. I'm sorry about the bad times you are living through. I'm sending you a beam of light :)

    Wonderful news about your sis!

  3. Glad to meet you through the scramble!

  4. Ugh, that's got to be so hard, going through all of that stuff. I'm so sorry you have to do it for this reason! I wish I could come and help you. At least we could have some laughs and OD on M&Ms while we worked, right?

    Great news for your sis!

    Sending hugs & virtual M&Ms!!

  5. Visiting from Justine's place this morning to check out your scrambles. Sorry to hear you've hit a rough patch; I don't know your story so I won't say, "it'll get better" though I'm sure it will. Hang in there!

    And congratulations on your sister's pregnancy! How exciting! It's always nice to have a spot of good news in the midst of things like this. ;)

  6. I hate that your kids are caught in the middle of this foreclosure. I know that you are doing the very best you can, and they will realize that too.
