Yesterday was pretty busy. I had to go sign some court papers for a trial management conference coming up. My eldest childrens father basically asking for either custody or unsupervised access. But since I’ve seen his home, he’s not ready yet.
However, by having more visits with his daughter through me, the motivation to at least clean a little is improving slowly.
I also had a prenatal appointment yesterday. Things are looking good for River. However, the doctor wants to schedule another ultrasound in 6 weeks to get a measurement since my last baby was so big.
I also gotta do the blood work soon to check for diabetes. That appointment should be interesting with a toddler, especially since I gotta sit around for an hour after drinking an orange drink that tastes like a flat orange crush.
I also have to call the hospital soon, start my birth plan. Fill paper work out. Yep, getting closer and closer to Rivers arrival.
Today I called the Housing Access Centre, and they basically said that I will have to re-apply for housing once my arrears are paid off. My application for housing from June will no longer be valid. Isn’t that great?! So what is that? Another 3 months of waiting?
Then, I get a call from my lawyers office to tell me that I need to get my things from my ex partners address because he’s moving. Apparently it is more than a cab can carry, so I might need something bigger…
There is no space here at the shelter to hold my things, so who do I have to turn to? My eldest children’s father. Yeah, his place may be a mess, but at least he has the space to hold onto our things until we get a place….whenever that will be.
So with my ex-partner moving, how will I know which area of the city to stay away from?
Anyways, I started to fill out another application, and saw that birth certificates were needed. Fuck! I managed to get my children thiers, but my own??? Thanks to my eldest foster brother and aunt, they helped me out over Facebook with the birth places of my foster parents. I actually learned some things I didn’t know. For example, I thought my foster mother was born in Quebec. Nope. Turned out to be a different province. It’s amazing how you can live with someone for so long, and know so little about them.
I also need to go to the Public Dominion building to get my youngest daughters SIN number.
I do have a townhouse to view on Friday. Gotta try to stay positive, despite all the sudden obstacles.
Thanks to the Online Art auction, and the CCB that I will be receiving on the 20th, my debt for arrears can finally be paid off in full. And I will no longer have to worry about it.
However, I was hoping that would mean that my application would go from pending to processed. Not start all over again…
I left to go Halloween costume shopping at Walmart with my children. My eldest daughter will be Harley Quinn, and my baby girl will a clown, her little sidekick. Too cute.
We met up with my eldest daughters father because he has clothes for our son that he wants my eldest daughter can pass on to our son tomorrow.
Anyways, I needed to get out. Even if it was wet and cold outside. I needed to get out and vent a little. Ya know? Maybe I’m thinking too far ahead and giving myself anxiety. But yeah, my ex said not to worry about having to fill out another application, I should get into housing fairly quick just for the fact that I’m pregnant and how far long I am.

My eldest daughter has a stomach flu, so we won’t be going anywhere this weekend.
We did have plans to go to a friends place and create some art, but hopefully another time.
In the meantime it’s an indoor weekend, letting my eldest daughter recover and rest.
I’m pretty much bracing myself for one hell of a busy week ahead. But by the end of it, I should have the arrears paid off to First Nations Housing Co-Op and a new application in for the Housing Access Centre.
Monday I got to pick up some things from my ex partners place because he’s moving out. Plus my eldest daughter has her Equine Therapy.
Tuesday…my eldest daughter has her visit with her father. I have blood work to get done…
Wednesday…. I start my birth plan, calling the hospital and getting things ready for the big day.
Thursday… I have a trial management conference to attend to at the court house. My eldest daughters father is either trying to get custody or unsupervised access. However, in my response, he’s not ready for that yet if he cannot take care of himself or his home.
Of course it’s scheduled for 2:30pm. So I had to make some arrangements with Merrymount and a friend. My youngest daughter will be at Merrymount until 4:30pm. I can pick her up after court. And my eldest daughter will be picked up at school by a friend and brought to me at the courthouse after she’s done school. Thank Merrymount for extending the time of my youngest daughters stay , and my friend for helping me out with this, ya know? Especially since I cannot be at 3 places at once.
Friday is the 20th. Which means I should get my CCB, and I can pay off the remaining arrears that I owe.
I also have an appointment at Merrymount that day to set up the Supervised Exchanges so that my ex partner can start his bi- weekend visits with my youngest daughter. It’s going to be so strange not having her around. I hope she’ll be okay. He can’t do what he used to, she’s a toddler now, and needs constant supervision. She gets into everything.
At least by the end of the week, a new housing application will be submitted, and hopefully it won’t take too much longer until we get into housing.

So I got some stuff back from my ex partners place.
Thank my eldest daughters father for helping and getting a friend of his to help out.
Anyways, my ex partner wasn’t supposed to be there, I had to call my lawyers office and have them call him to leave. But he just showed up later anyways. So I didn’t breech my order, he just doesn’t follow instructions very well that were given to him by my lawyer. Maybe he’s so full of himself he thinks he’s above the law.
Anyways, I didn’t get a chance to take everything that was mine. I still left a lot behind. That’s okay. Furniture and stuff is replaceable.
I did get my painting back that I did of my youngest daughter. But get this, it wasn’t packed with my belongings, it was stashed in one of my ex partners boxes (he’s getting ready to move). So that weasel thought he could act all sweet to my face, but attempt to steal an art piece of mine that I created??? Rightfully so, I took it back. If he wants a painting of our daughter he can pay for it! I put a lot of work into that painting, it is the artists decision whom it belongs to. It’s mine! I decide what to do with it. And just the fact that he tried to steal it from me?? Ugh! That 2 faced goof!! I’m really not happy about that. He knew damn well I valued that painting and that I was going to come back for it eventually. Fuck him. Just for trying to steal it, the price for HIM when it comes to that painting will be $800. Just for being a fuckin dick.
Anyways, it’s a good thing I cancelled my daughter’s Equine Therapy today, because I completely forgot about a CAS appointment at 4pm. So things worked out. I rescheduled my eldest daughters counselling and I was able to give CAS an update in person.
I told her that my ex partner showed up when he wasn’t supposed to be there when I was getting my belongings today. And she told me to make sure I tell my lawyer that as well…so my lawyers office got an email.
Anyways, one day down of a busy week. 4 more days to go. It will get done!
