Long Story(ies) Short

I got a job. It's a good one too. I should start June 9 but I think I'll push it back to June 16. I don't want to rush in to anything.

Went out of town for the long weekend and saw the family and the darling Pie and Tart. The car alternator (sp?) died and we drove the last half hour without headlights. It was as awesome as you'd think. The nice cop who helped us was orignally from near MyTown and also knew where my family's Greyhound Farm was. Small world.

Oh, and by the way I was granted overnight custody of my brother and will be in Juvenile Court at 9am tomorrow for temporary emergency custody until they'll finally flipping do something to keep this child safe and away from our mother who has more personalities than a three ring circus. This has been four long years. Pray for all of us. It's not easy. Especially the child.

More on the excitement of the job later.

As for your brother, I hope you are awarded custody. I know there are some issues there and I hope he's in a safe, loving place - with you. Crossing my fingers...
