I’m going to scream.
Just as I had finally started to accept the reality of Cody being in my house and all of the anxiety and responsibility that comes with a co-ed household of non-related teenagers, it all blows up in my face.
Cody’s mom decided she was just fed up with having to deal with him.
No. Really.
That’s what she told me today, that she couldn’t deal with him anymore.
When was she dealing with him at all?
She is coming to pick him up today to take him to a friend of his dad’s house until his dad can pick him up on Saturday and take him back to Other Town Three Hours Away. She even went and withdrew him from school yesterday without even telling me. So I stuck him on the bus this morning and because she told him to leave yesterday to meet her and then sent him back to ride the bus, the school suspended him anyway so he couldn’t even go to school today and was instead stuck in town until he got a ride back to my house.
What the fuck is wrong with people?
I spoke to his dad twice. Once yesterday and once today and whether he is a good dad or not remains to be seen but he did seem to be equal parts not surprised and disgusted with Cody’s mom. After talking to her today, I am not surprised.
I feel like I lost.
I feel like I tried to fight for him and lost.
Even the most simple thing, keeping him in school for two weeks, I lost.
I feel defeated.
And angry.
And sad.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
