I'm Back ... And I apologize!!!!

Good Morning ALL!

Sorry I've been gone for so long!!! I didn't forget about the 75 Followers giveaway!!  That post will be following this one ... I like to keep them seperate so there is no confusion!!

Got a new computer after the last one got fried in a freak lighting storm in Colorado (remember that post???) That was tricky ... trying to do my blog posts off of our PS3 .. now that was difficult!!!

Since then, I am trying to catch up on my Layouts and Card designs!

I have come to a slowing affect though ... after moving to Texas, I've had to get a job ... whew ... now that wasn't the hard part! It was the hours that just about killed me! I have since then quit that one and got one at Target Corp here in Weatherford, TX. ... and I've gotta say I love it!! I'm on the Soft Lines Team ( Which are amazing gals!) I was just recognized as a TOP PERFORMER for January!!! ( I started working there in December!) I'm now putting in my  application to be Brand Team Member for the Shoes Dept. ... a promotion!! YAY!!!

For the sadder news ... I'm in the middle of trying to get my son back from the state of Arizona ... My ex decided to get him taken away and refused to give CPS any of my info ( Talk about making me mad) So it took them almost 6 months to find me ... The back story:  My Ex took my son from me without me knowing in COlorado Springs ... Took him to Louisiana ... got CPS called on him there then took off after getting out of the army ... I had been looking for my son ever since! The cops wouldn't do anything since it was a joined custody ... Talk about making me mad!!!  Now the courts in AZ are making go through all this testing stuff .. I've already had a home visit (Got exellent remarks!) Doing drug screening ... passing them all ... Psycho test is coming up on the 29th to make sure I'm stable .. I think after everything i've been through .. I'm pretty sure I'm stable!
I just miss the heck out of my son! Every time I think about it, him or the situation I start balling!! I have his room all made up! CPS won't even let me talk to him, but in the court notes for Feb's hearing they are docking me for not contacting him ... ummm DUH! CPS won't give me any of his contact info! Letters I write have to go to the CPS worker in AZ .. which she claims she has only gotten one! I call BULL ... I have receipts proving I sent more than that ... WAY MORE!  The system for drug screening locked me out so I wasn't able to do all of the test (if i miss one it's counted as a positive test) EVEN THOUGH I COULDN"T HELP IT!!!! I think they are trying to stone wall me just because they don't want to deal with an INTRASTATE deal/transfer because it's going to cost them!!!
I'm sooo upset and I have to have a lawyer in AZ, I can't move up there ... I'll be unstable because I'll have to find a job and an apartment! plus my husband is still connected to the Army as IRR and it takes a ton of paper work to change the locations!

I just don't know what to do??? I'm trying so hard to fight this, work, keep my family here together and not loose my youngest son!  My ex was charged with neglect and abuse, I don't get why they are even thinking of putting my son back with him!!! I don't get it!!!! I'm so confused and my lawyer barely talks to me ... She won't even email me back!! I have proof that he's a pathological lair, vindictive and abusive not to mention an alcoholic ... What doesn't sound right here? I thought CPS is all about the welfare of the child????  

Anyhow .. I'll quit  and move on!

I just wanted everyone to know what was going on and why my posts just all of the sudden quit.  But I'm back now!!!
