Hi Bev! I'm not sure which "Deb" you were referring to but since I haven't posted much lately, I decided that I would answer, even if it is the other Deb that you were asking about. lol

Things have been rather hectic around my house lately. First, I am back on weekly chemo (Herceptin, preventative) Protocol is ever 21 days but the cost of that is over $26,000 and my insurance was only covering $8,000. So by going on weekly, the reimbursment is much better. I can't say that I like this weekly crap but, as we all know, we have to do whatever it is that keeps us going.

As most of you know, I have had my 3 granddaughters for the past year. Well, my eldest granddaughter's pe teacher is a friend of her other grandmother and aunts. He preceded to tell them that Emma (age 12) had missed a lot of school, was flunking and running w/ a bad crowd. Well, she was very sick in Nov, Dec, and Jan. She did miss school but still made straight A's and the honor roll. She is NOT running w/ a bad crowd. Trust me on that one. So her grandmother calls, then her dad calls. She hadn't heard from them since before Thanksgiving when she was to sick to go visit them. They didn't send her bday gifts, Christmas gifts, etc. No word from any of them. To make a long, long story much shorter....After the phone calls I went to the school and talked to the principal. I get home and there was a call from DFS. I had been hotlined for dental neglect and giving Emma my narcotic drugs to make her sleep so I wouldn't have to fool w/ her. I was livid!!!!!! So I called the principal and told her she ahd better do something about that teacher. The caseworker found that there was no justification to their claim and told them so. Then my daughter decided that she was going to show her power and called the police and made the girls go w/ her. She said that she was NOT going to bring them back but she did. Anyway, it has been anything but quiet and peaceful here. This is why I haven't posted much lately but I do make sure to read the board at least 1x a day.

Take care. Happy FIRST DAY OF SPRING.

Hugs,

Deb

Oh, Deb, I'm so sorry that you have had all that crap on top of chemo! Sometimes, it's not just cancer that sucks, is it. But at least you have the girls back. Now if the principal can just reign in that rotten teacher. Unfortunately, there are those few of them who abuse that "mandated reporter" thing, and it sounds like she is one of them. Now anything you do or say, she will just dismiss as trying to get back at her for reporting you, I can just about guarantee.

Anyway, I'm glad you check the board often, but it never takes but a minute to check in, sweetie!

Love and hugs...

Hi Bev: I need to clarify that it wasn't the principal or teacher that reported me. It was my granddaughter's father and his mother. They hadn't talked to Emma since before Thanksgiving. They got mad because she was sick and didn't get to go visit her dad over Thanksgiving break. The grandmother lives in the same town that we do. The DFS worker told me that I could press charges against them for false report but right now I want to keep things fairly quiet. If they try anything again, I definitely will go to the prosecuting attorney and sue them for everything that I can get. He only pays $80 a month child support. Some dad, huh?
 
I will try and check in more often. Thanks for thinking of me.
 
Hugs..Deb

Deb, I'm relieved to hear that it wasn't the teacher. I know there are those out there who abuse that law, but I'm glad that wasn't the situation here. I can still be mad at her for sharing false info with the other grandmother/ aunts, though, right!?! LOL

My granddaughter's dad is a deadbeat as well. Doesn't do a thing for her, and since he doesn't see her, I don't really mind picking up his slack. He's supposed to be paying a good chunk, compared to the sum yours get, but the only time it's ever been actually collected was when he filed for unemployment and they garnished that! Good for them!He changes jobs every time he gets a notice of wage garnishment. He's far enough in arears now, he's going to get thrown in jail if they ever pick him up for anything. Some people are using up perfectly good oxygen, and you have to wonder why, don't you???

Take care, and YES! Check in more often.

Love and hugs...

OMG..I love this statement. I wonder why either of the fathers of my granddaughters uses up perfectly good oxygen. I wouldn't mind just having to pick up the slack but my daughter hasn't worked since July and contributes NOTHING to the girls support. But as long as she stays away, I am ok w/ that also. They don't lack for anything. In fact, I am on my way to buy the middle one a pair of soccer cleats. Gonna get them at WalMart as she is only 6. The 12 yo I had to pay almost $100 for her cleats this week.
 
Your daughter should have to do nothing more than call the state child support division and they will issue a warrant for the father's arrest. They can take his car and any other property he has and sell it to get the arrears that he owes.

Hi Bev & Deb

 

Just thought Id put in my 2 cents worth on the child support issue. Iam still collecting support for my daughter who is almost 22 years old. Her dad was the same way, he would quit his job every time they would catch up to him. I usually see a check for a few months and then it quits again. I have not seen anything for a month now so he has probably moved on again. This is the man that was a great dad and had always had a great job when we were married, but he decided that he wanted a younger blonder model and left me for her. The funny thing is that after about 3 years together she cheated on him and left him for someone else. You know how they say what goes around comes around!!!!!!! He has never been the same or had quite as nice a life as when we were married, he will retire a poor man at this rate and not have the respect of his daughter either! Some men should never have children, they just are not responsible enough. Well enough of my complaining.

Hugs to both of you.

Bernadette
