Had a long, tiring day..and need serious advice.
My mom had court today about custody of my sisters and I. The judge issued a guardian ad litem. My mom was very upset, and she would have to pay a lot of money for someone to be snooping in our business..deciding who would have custody. I wanted to speak to my father, that I haven't seen in years. So I asked my grandma if she would take me over to his ranch. I have to admit that I was very scared. I walked up to his doorsteps, and was greeted by my dad. His girlfriend was very rude, and left the room. I talked to him, and let him know how I felt. He came to our house later to work out an agreement with my mom about visitation rights. They dont' want the court involved. I have to see my dad this Sunday, and I'm really scared. I want to see him, because I miss him very much..even though he has put our family through way too much. I'm deathly afraid of his mother, who will be there. I'm just happy, because he is going to let me ride horses. (He owns a horse stable, and offers lessons)
How can I ignore his girlfriends rude comments, and deal with her kids? How am I going to deal with my grandma? I'm going to try to be strong, but I'm really nervous.
