Another Quickie...

Last night, after (yes, I'm counting; I keep track on the calendar) 51 nights of silence, "Father of the Year" finally called the Princess. Told her he'll call again tonight, and *might* come to Saturday's game (currently having no plans, he says; and he may bring his MIL). {Notice the use of the words like "may" and "currently" -- these have historically been his outs. Princess is not fooled.}

Let's fill in some details here, shall we?

* Last visual contact -- early December, 2009, at a school production. He brought his mother, two younger daughters, and grandmother. She's had a full 12 weeks of dance classes, a few events at school, and is almost done with her softball season... no-show for any of it.
* Last telephonic contact -- March 29th, close to 7pm. She won't call him, so it is completely up to him to make the effort...
* STILL no birthday (which was November 6th) or Xmas gifts, which he SAYS he has... -- does he not know how to ship? USPS has what we call "flat rate boxes" -- very inexpensive.

Also, I got a letter from DCS stating that his driver's license is going to be suspended, unless (of course) he takes one of three certain actions -- pay the full amount owed (HAHAHA!!), the person listed on the form is not him, or by making a payment plan. Not sure if he can even make a payment plan, though... Well, stick to one, anyway. Unfortunately, driving without a license is a secondary offense, so he'd have to be pulled over for something else before the cops would know it. But, whatever; it made me mildly amused, at least.

Since I know J still reads my blog, I'd like to mention that the option of adoption is still on the table. In exchange, all money currently owed in this case would vanish -- he would no longer owe one dime of it. Think about it.


  1. Sounds like an option he should consider...

  2. I should probably also mention that I would NOT cut off all possibility of contact, but all contact WOULD be at HER request, only. That way, I'd know any contact he had would truly be something she would want.
