(Semi) Wordless Wednesday - The Approach of Father's Day

Father's Day is quickly approaching.

And I'm bummed the fuck out.

I don't think I'll be able to spend it with my boys.

I was supposed to be going down this weekend to visit, but a huge financial hiccup prevented me from doing so. As it stands right now, I can't have a bank account or credit card in my name, or else all the funds get taken because of the child support I'm behind.

Part of me is glad.  When I was unemployed, I fell behind, and I feel bad about that.  But, at the same time, I need to pay my own expenses here, and I'd like to be able to save up some money to visit my boys.

It's kind of depressing.  My ex is trying to decide if she's going to work with me, and tell the agency to stop collecting.  If so, I go back to private paying her, and all is well.  Until that happens, I'm essentially under her thumb.  And she knows it.

This wordless Wednesday is dedicated to my boys.  I miss you. I love you.  I don't know when I will be able to see you, but I pray it is soon.


Father's Day 2010.  For some reason it was 'inconvenient'
for me to have the boys all day, so I had to settle
for lunch at TGI Friday's.  The ex took pictures...


Daddy loves you.

João Rodrigues said...

Cute kids!! Congratulations!

Annabelle said...

frowns all around

I know the struggles that child support on top of life's daily bills can be a mutha fucka.

I hope she decides to work with you through this time. Maybe if you kick her some money during this "off the grid" time she'll see it as you trying and meet you in the middle. Just get a receipt.

Your boys are precious, I'm sure they miss you terribly. I hope their mother can get past the money and let you spend some time with them.

Venus said...

ohhh hope you see your kids soon.

The Minute Man's Wife said...

Cute boys. Great tie! LOL!

Astronomy Pirate said...

Good luck! It's a pretty crummy system you've fallen victim to. To me it seems to drive a wedge further between fathers and their children. My gf's dad pretty much hates her because of all the shit her mom gave him. I hope it all works out for you though.

Smart Ass Sara said...

You know.. I can't stand chicks like that to be honest. I mean, my dad never paid a dime to my mom and she got by. At least you're willing to pay. Dang. Take what you can get babycakes. :/

ThirteenCats said...

man that sucks. I know what you're going through, it's no fun and you just want to do what's best for the kids.

Kar said...

Your boys are adorable. I feel for you. I spent Mother's Day without my kids too. My saving grace is that their father doesn't really want them there and can't handle them. Anytime they are on an extended break from school, he will find a way to make sure they get to visit me so he doesn't have to deal with them.

I hope you get to see them soon and really hope she will work with you so you can move on.

Yuck that you can't see your babies. And I hope that their mother can lighten up and work with you because the only folks this really "hurts" is the boys. And those two are super cuties!!

kitkat said...

your kids are adorable, and sowi bout your financia woes.

Colin Biano said...

oh, child support..

jorg wobblington lopez said...

Hopefully you can see your kids on Father's day. What's the point of being a father if you can't celebrate your day properly? Just joking. Father's day is a manufactured holiday to promote consumption.

donga5000 said...

That's really shitty, hope you get to see them soon

Nom de Plume said...

Oh, mate that must be awful - I hope it works out

Lady Estrogen said...

Kicking Rocks said...

Lendo Khar said...

Wish you could spend some time with your kids soon, I bet they miss you a lot.

Lemons Don't Make Lemonade said...

Adorable!

Zombie said...

That reminds me! I gotta get my dad something! lol.

Random Girl said...

I agree that the system seems to work against the dads most of the time, even the good ones like you and my ex hubs. We took most of our dealing private just so we could do what was in the best interest of our daughter and have some flexibility to deal with life as it comes instead of being screwed into some inflexible system. I hope you guys can work something out. You need to see your boys and they need to see you! Chin up cupcake, it will work out for you.

Chris Phillips said...

Love the tie. Hope Sh1t works out.

The Tame Lion said...

Absolutely adorable!
The sweetest words in the world - "Daddy, mommy, I love you."

JayPower said...

Melanie said...

cute kids! hope things work out for you all!

THE SNEE said...

You have beautiful children. Economic hardship sucks.

Thank, Q said...

Dude, nice tie! Where can I score one? Seriously, it will work out. Just keep things cordial with the ex and hopefully she'll back off the throttle a bit and allow for some logical reasoning to come ino play.

hed said...

They are too cute! I hope your ex sees past all the BS and realizes you only want what's best for your kids.
