When I got the notice last week that we had a hearing this week to determine holiday visitation, I was a bit perplexed. K and I had been talking, why did we need to go to court for this shit? After we found out it was him and not her, I felt a little bit better.
After my mom talked to K last week about the court hearing, she agreed it should be canceled. She said she knew she would get to see A. When I went by the lawyers office to discuss some things, he called her lawyer to find out if it had been canceled. He said it hadn't. What the hell? A flurry of calls later, they sent a request to have the Mexican guy that helps my father landscape be the mediator for Christmas day for three hours.
It's a game to my father. A big, fat game. And for some reason, K feels like she has to play it with him. For some reason, she's not allowed to stand up to him and voice her opinion. It boggles my mind. I don't understand, how this is "best for the child" when my father makes these 'game plays'. I feel like their lawyer just eats his bullshit and is content. This man is ridiculous and it's not no one is willing to tell him to STFU because it's about the child, not him.
My other complaint about the motion they filed were the blatant lies about me. I thought when you filed papers, you were under oath that what you are saying is the truth? Why are they (and by they, I mean him) able to make up such big lies and get away with it? I just don't understand. Everything we have claimed has been true. There isn't one lie in our whole motion. It frustrates me.
I'm not going to lie, I'm worried about leaving A with them for three hours on Christmas Day. If K can't stand up to her dad without the baby there, is she really going to make sure he's not drinking around the baby? The Mexican guy isn't going to stand up to my dad, either. We'll see how it goes.
I'm just glad I'm able to focus on my finals today and tomorrow instead of dealing with this court hearing.
