{August 9, 2016}   Everything Done

At least today I feel like I have gotten something done. In just the 4 short hours that I was out. I managed to go back to the clerk of courts and get my certified copy of my papers. When I called this morning she said it would be about $5 to get it. I got there there was two people in front of me, then when they called the next person one lady said she was waiting on her husband and the kids said they were waiting to talk to one guy that was busy with someone else. The guy ask me to wait and moved the person he was with over to the lady and took the kids. I had to then wait for the next clerk to get done. It ended up being the lady that helped me yesterday. I told her I called this morning to see what was going on and that they told me they put it in today. She looked it up printed, stamped it and gave it to me. I asked her how much and she said nothing not to worry about it since I had to come back and was just there yesterday.

Then I get to the Social Security Office and I get a lady instead of the guy that I had yesterday. I gave her everything to get my new card and the name change. I told her I had a few thing to take care of so when we were done with that she asked what else. I told her that I got SSI for my son I wanted to make sure that it got changed and that I started getting child support so I needed to report that. She said I would need to bring the print out from the child support place. I told her they weren’t doing it that way he was just paying me direct and that he had paid me from for two weeks now last Friday. It showed on the same order that my name change was on and the amount per month. She said she needed to make a copy. When she came back she gave me my copy I told her she gave me the wrong copy because it didn’t have the blue stamp on it. She took it looked said no that it was because it had the staple in it and that what I gave her didn’t have a blue stamp. I ask her how she did it without that because I had been there yesterday and the guy refused said I had to get the other one. She said she used that one she could see it was not a copy and the stamped copy from the judge. I told her sorry for the confusion that I must have grabbed the wrong one when I came in but that I needed to make sure that I had the one that had the blue stamp so that when I went other places that needed it. But it kind of made me mad that I have spent two days running around doing this because he refused to take something the other lady said they could have taken.

After that we went school supply shopping for the two older kids. We took them and got close the other day. Today I got the papers, markers and all that good stuff. I am down $75 or more and still have one more kid to shop for this weekend coming up.

I now have an hour and a half before I have to pick the little ones up, go to therapy then leave there and go to the kids school for their open house or whatever they call it. I think I am going to take a much needed nap.



Edited to move it from a page to a post, and to say you can ad this to the On A Roll post. I wrote and posted this before I ever left for the ss office. When I went to put tags an a categories they weren’t there. I thought it was odd but figured wordpressed changed something again I hadn’t noticed. I didn’t have time to check into it at the time. Nope nothing changed I just posted it under pages instead of post. So here you go now in it’s right spot.

 

I got a letter in the mail a week or so ago saying that I needed to come in to the SS office by the 15th. It was already the 20 something. I called to see if I could get it taken care of over the phone she said I had to go in. I asked for a appointment and she said they don’t give them for that just go in. I told her look I can’t spend hours there waiting to be seen I have 4 kids that I have no help with and have to bring with me plus at the time I was going and helping take care of my dad. She told me to hold on yet again and then came back said they have one at……………………………………….. yep you guessed it I got hung up on. I figured since she had my number and everything she would call me back. I just held on for a hour at one number then another hour at that number and had to wait for them to call me back. They got my number they just used it and called me 5 minutes ago. Nope she didn’t call me back. I didn’t make it down there because things got worse with my dad and all. Before I knew it was the first they put the money on my card. So I was going to go when father of the year was off this past Monday. Over the weekend I got a letter in the mail saying that I had an appointment for today. I started to still go Monday so that I didn’t have to take the kids with me but then figured that I would just end up waiting all day to be seen. I needed to go see my dad so I went up there instead. I figure if I got today when they tell me then hopefully we will get in and out pretty quick. The fact I have the kids with me they will want to get me out as fast as possible. I hope they don’t take all day I have to be back here for therapy by 1:45 for the boys. Then after they leave at  4 we are going up to see my dad a few minutes. I was going to go tomorrow but my little guy asked a few times yesterday if we could go see grandpa and when we could go see him again. I figure that if he is asking we need to go. Kids know things sometimes. I feel bad to wait until tomorrow just because we have the day free and something happen. I know he isn’t going to want us to stay very long anyway probably an hour or so if that. Last time we were only there for about half hour 45 minutes. It being later in the day I know he is going to be pretty wore out probably. We go back tomorrow earlier in the day and then Friday. My little guy hopefully gets his pins out and cast off at 2:15. He is already talking about going to show grandpa when we get back. It is a drive there and back so we won’t get to stay long then either before he is tired. But we will get to spend time with him. He will get to see my little guy is ok. I know he was worried about him. I guess I better get off here and get everyone dressed and get to the ss office. I should be leaving in just a few minutes. I just have no motivation to do anything or energy if I want too.
