I finally got Samantha booked on a flight down here in July. It was similar to an act of congress to coordinate and book. My cousin, Michael originally sent me dates that he would have her (him and his ex-wife are divorced and from what I hear it’s ugly between them) and I took a look at the Atlanta Dream schedule so I could take her to a basketball game while she was here and replied back that the dates would work and to let me know so I could book the ticket. He replied back that it was good with him that he had to run it by the ex and soon as he did he’d let me know.
A few days went by and I asked him about it again. I mean, I’ve had to stay on this guy to get this thing rolling or else it would have never happened. It’s so typical with my family – if it doesn’t pertain to them personally then it’s simply not a priority. He send me copies of all these nasty texts between him and his ex wife. She’s inflamed over it because those dates were ones where Samantha had volleyball tryouts.
I was thinking, Well, shit if I’d of known she had tryouts this week I wouldn’t have suggested it. It was Michael who suggested those dates to begin with. Apparently, he and his ex SB are in a huge argument over Samantha going to sports during the summer. Michael is like, It’s summer, I shouldn’t have to take her to school or sports.
Great. I didn’t need to be made privy to their argument I was like JUST SEND ME SOME FRIGGING DATES YOU BOTH AGREE ON!
SB suggested the week prior so Samantha wouldn’t miss tryouts. I was like, Let me look at the flights but I don’t think that would be a problem.
Long story short (I guess) I got the flight booked and coordinated with her. Honestly, it was waaay easier to coordinate with her than him. I know they have their differences but I have a feeling she’s way more progressive than him. Next –
I have two more weeks of school left and I tell you – I’m ready to be out. I did end up booking the two classes. My adviser even told me that I needed to take them in the summer because they simply aren’t offered in the fall. I’ll have about three weeks off in-between semesters so I’m going to use that time to try and get ahead a little. One is online and the other is a ground class so I’ll only need to drive up to school once a week.
We had Rooster and Shutter over for dinner last night and a good time was had by all. We hadn’t seen them in awhile so it was good to catch up.
Welp, that’s all I have for now. Have a great rest of the weekend y’all!
