    She is 18 months old. The happiest baby I have ever had the joy of being around. I have been so mean to her and she loves me more than I could ever imagine from some one else's kid. She makes my grandson jealous of attention so he bides for my attention more now than he already did. You won't hear or read about me complaining one bit. The grass'll be waist high before I get out there if them youguns want to spend time with me. I know there is a short window that they want to spend time with us elders before focusing on their own thing.

    They will be grown and gone in no time, Rick. The grass will still be there.

    Ouch Lori!


    Rick, I've been busy and so not really been reading all the posts, so I just went back and read your past posts to find out what was going on.
    Thank you for what you are doing for Jessa.

    If it was a few years ago when you took in the other child, you will probably need to redo your background checks. I am required to do my criminal and sex offender ones every year, and the FBI once every two years.

    If I can provide any kind of assistance or advise, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm sure that stands for Stan too for the legal stuff with her mom.

    It's just wonderful that you are stepping up for her. Jessa is very lucky to have you and Michelle in her life.

    Thank you very much, Alex.

    The DCS agent just left the house for the inspection and it passed with flying colors. Said it was very obvious she was well cared and loved for there. Plenty of food in fridge and pantry, nothing dangerous stands out and all and all a great environment. With all my other girls and their kids there, it was plain to see we are a family oriented group. I still have to meet with her for about a 5 minute interview and information then my wife's mother will do the same. She told my wife that we would probably be better off going after temporary custody so that Jessica couldn't claim benefits on her or make any changes until we saw fit to allow them. I agree with the changes part, but didn't understand why I would want to stop her from collecting benefits? She is her child and rightfully should be able to shouldn't she? I could use some more understanding on that if any is available.

    Yearling
    ...then I walked Tommy abit. Janice told me to get into a fast walk,which I did. Then a trot..which I couldn't, but will next time. Janice reminded me (as I started to leak weepy things), that I had a severe accident, I gave up, it's been a long time, & I was a novice in the beginning, & still am..after all that, & it'll be ok. Okay.

    When I went back to finish cleaning 3 pens (2 horses together in on), Janice saw mare Bree @ the end of the back row lieing down in distress, even I could see it wasn't a rest, her right hind was pawing @ her belly. I pulled out my 'barrow & rack & went to help.

    Turned out ok, Janice said was a mild-going-to-not'so'mild gas colic. She'd gone & gotten stethoscope/thermometer (her stethoscope is junk,btw..going to give her my Litman's I never use, as work as good ones). Learned alot in a very short time. Saw the difference in Bree's lower belly, saw agitated quivers in her withers. I held her while Janice gave her a med to take the edge off her pain & relax her, & while she got her temp. Found out where a horse's pulse is...cool. Janice had called the owner right after the med, so she got there after a little bit. By then Bree was better, after some mighty farts (as for the mucking remainder I had to do, cleaned Bree's so Janice could see a new incoming deposit, & J&J will get done tomorrow).

    Was very relieved Bree was ok. Told Janice if I'd found her like that when she had already gone, I'd have called her first, so she could tell me what was next to do. She said that would've been the right thing to do.

    That was my day. I wanted to work w/Tommy a bit longer, but my hips wouldn't let me. But, learned alot today.

    Am pooped. Still have to iron uniforms! Back to work tomorrow. Blessings on all.

    Glad the Bree was ok and you got to learn some first hand first aid for a horse. Hope you get the rest of your needs taken care of before going in to work tomorrow as well as some rest from today.

    Glad that the home inspection went so well.

    The benefits that she is talking about are probably benefits for the child, rather than for her. The mother shouldn't get that money, if anyone does, it should be you as you have the expense of the child at the moment.

    I think you should get a temp custody order too, that way no one can show up and just take the child from you. Grandparents etc.

    Florida is not a Grandparent's right state. They don't recognize them for rights of visitation or custody like most other states. I found that out the hard way with one of my kids when they were going through a faze with an ex husband not wanting to let us see our grandkids.

    I will make sure to discuss that with my wife tonight. We just want to make sure Jessa is going to be safe until Jessica can get her life on track all the other stuff is minute in our mind at this time. I never got child support for my two oldest girls when I got full custody of them at ages 2 and 3. They are 21 and 22 now. I also never told them not to have anything to do with their mother, nor bad mouthed her for the things she did. State of Tenn. Took them from her then I fought for 2 years to get custody while living in Ms. Going up every other weekend to visit. Alica(21) was a year old before I even knew she existed.Long story. I never complained about not receiving CS as I had the mindset that they were with me and safe and that was all that mattered to me.

    Called my wife and asked her to take a pic of Jessa and send it so I could show her. This is what she wore to town today.
