Have you ever been in a spot where you just don’t know what is going to happen? Where you don’t know what your next move will be? Where you are thinking “What just happened”? I am at that point right now. I can’t believe this is happening…
Sunday, one of Andrew’s friends came over and they went for a walk. I get a phone call a little while later, it’s Andrew. I have to go pick him up because he is in trouble with the police for trying to steal someone’s bike. Not knowing what is going to happen with that, we take Andrew home and he is grounded. Even though he is grounded he wants to go see his girlfriend. I tell him no. So she comes over to our house and when David tells her that he cannot go anywhere and tells her what happened. She gets mad and starts screaming at Andrew. Somewhere in all of this Andrew picks up an axe and puts a hole in the outside wall of the garage to the house we are renting. David wants to call the police. I tell him no. Screaming continues at Andrew by the girlfriend, then they go into the back of the garage to talk. Andrew and girlfriend’s friends are left standing outside so I walk them to the front of the house and we sit down at the picnic table in the front yard and talk. A little while goes by and Girlfriend and Andrew join us again. Everything has quieted down. The kids leave and everyone goes about their business. David gets ready for work, gives me a kiss goodnight/goodbye and I tell him to be careful.
David comes home Monday morning and tells Andrew he is divorcing me. I don’t know what all was said between the two of them. I get up and go find David working in Karalyn’s room and tell him good morning. He says hello and then he tells me he wants a divorce. He tells me that he put up with this kind of stuff with his ex wife and now he is putting up with it here. Andrew won’t listen and thinks he can just do whatever he wants. So now, because of Andrew, I am getting a divorce…and I didn’t do anything to David.
So now what do I do? I have spent the last 24 hours wondering what I am going to do with three kids on one income. Where are we going to live? How am I going to support the kids? This whole situation has just turned my entire world upside down. I don’t know what to do! I am stuck. I am sad, mad, and keep praying that things will straighten out, but I have a feeling they aren’t going to.
