Rambling Thoughts

I've had a busy day today. My grandson spent the night last night and I got up early so I could get him back to my daughter's. She had to get him ready to go to his dad's house. This weekend is the first time he is staying over night with his dad. He will have him until five p.m. tomorrow night. For the life of me I still don't understand what kind of idiot the judge is, giving a 12 month old child to a man who he barely knows for over night visits. As far as our family is concerned this jerk is just a sperm donor and unless things change drastically he will never be a real dad to the boy. I really hated seeing him go, and wish I could have found a way of preventing it, but the courts have ordered every other weekend visits, and here is nothing I can do, I'm the grandma. And legally have no rights. I do however have a new respect for mom's and grand moms who disappear in order to keep kids away from there dads. If I had the money and a place to go, I think I could take the baby and just drive away. Ok, maybe I'm just over reacting and deep down I know I probably wouldn't really do that even if I had the means, but it does make one wonder just what they are capable of. My biggest fear is that the baby will get hurt while he is in there care. I just don't trust this family. They are a bunch of beer drinking, pot smoking redneck trailer trash ass holes. I'm sorry if that word is offensive to anyone but sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade and ass holes are what they are. I could go on and on about the problems we have had with this family, but this post is already getting long and I am probably boring most people already.
Anyway my husband, daughter and I decided to get out of the house awhile and we took off for a little local fun. The Greek Festival was going on today and we headed that way. All I can say is Awesome..The church was really pretty. It is Greek Othadox and I no nothing about that religion but had a cool church. We had lunch there eating something called Moussaka. It sounded better than it taste, and I didn't finish it. I think next time I will stick to the pita's and fries.
When we left there we stopped in at Walmart, which the hubby opted to sit in the car while my daughter and I shopped. Later in the evening my hubby and I went to the movies and saw The DaVinci Code. I liked it a lot. I had read the book, and was impressed as to how close the move followed it. So many times books and movies tend to vary off from each other
Ok, I've rambled long enought. More next time

Oh Autumn, I can just imagine how you feel about having your little grandson staying with his so called dad for the weekend...I know how you're feeling because my brother lost full custody of his son when his son was only a baby and we always worried so much that his ex-wife had full custody because she was a cocaine addict, a drunk and had men over all the time. How a judge can grant her full custody, we'll never understand. My brother would get him every second weekend and the baby would always have a terrible diaper rash, bruises all over, etc...I don't know how many times he went to court but with never any luck. His son is now 17 years old and has many problems and is in trouble with the law and doing drugs...thanks to dear old mom!! Makes me sick when I think what that child went through. My brother is no saint either but I know how much he loves his son and I know he would have been a lot better with him. As for the Greek Festival, you mentioned the moussaka...I tried that once and couldn't finish it...I guess you have to acquire a taste for it! lol
