Last day of the month and the last day of the week. I haven't long before I need to begin my commute to work. It makes me a little sad that I'll be leaving the house a solid hour earlier in a few weeks. Right now is early enough!


I managed to talk myself out of one charge during my court appearance and pled guilty to the other for a deferred sentence; I've got 60 days to do some counselling, get a report or two, at least make some efforts. I've already done so much, but I did see there are some family options also, which should allow me to gain something useful from it.


It has been a good week, I've gone to the gym each day and have been active with work during the week. I feel accomplished and like I'm building things up again.

I need to be hard about getting what is my right in an effort to settle myself in a good life. A life with my kids and enough space to keep them; that means two bedroom minimum. In my city a two bedroom is going to be in excess of 3000 dollars, which would price me out if I need to pay support. I'll need to own my home to afford it, which means I'll need a down payment.


I hate to leave her moving to a smaller place and needing to compete for a place to live, but I shouldn't be edged out of my children's live for lack of a place to live. I can't let myself become homeless and loose out on their childhood.


Just morning thoughts. I need to get on to my workday.



We all need to begin somewhere. I like to think that since w...
