Wednesday started out like any other day under the current status quo of The New Normal: I got in from work, talked / Facebook Messaged The Auteur, slept a bit, tried to enjoy some daylight.
In the evening, I called The Boy. And since the STBX refused to take my calls or answer my e-mails, I asked The Boy to put her on the phone.
I reminded her of our rough plans for me to visit The Boy while she was on a work-related trip. I was planning to turn this into a little vacation of my own with The Auteur and 1B in tow.
After some stuttering and stalling, she tells me that I am not allowed to see The Boy until there’s a settlement in place.
I wasn’t really surprised by this course of action on Jabba’s behalf, but to be told you cannot see your child by anyone is truly shocking.
Amazingly enough, I kept my cool. I didn’t go nearly as ballistic as I did the day of the cable bill calamity although this is clearly much, much worse.
I called my lawyer the next day, and had a phone meeting with him on Friday. He’s going to call Jabba’s lawyer before proceeding any further.
What the hell have I become? The Me From One Year Ago would not even recognize the me of today. I’m not saying this to condemn the current me; rather, I’m just stunned sometimes at how much my life, my perspective and my attitude has changed.
