Then 1 of 2 things will happen. I will either take them home to take a nap OR they will see their dad.
It will be 5 weeks tomorrow that they haven't seen him. 4 weeks were his own doing. Last week, Sassy was seriously sick with an upper respiratory infection.
I am interested to see how this plays out because tomorrow is the deadline for his declaration regarding the temporary parenting plan, child support, etc. If he doesn't put in a declaration then the courts will probably sign my petition, no questions asked.
The thing is, I know his lawyer has prepared a declaration. I know he hasn't signed it yet. I also know his lawyer wants him to sign it tomorrow. Tomorrow he is supposed to see his girls and he has an interesting habit of whenever he sees his lawyer, giving that excuse for not seeing his daughters. Hmmm.
So, I wonder if he will choose to go sign that declaration. I think that would be the wise decision (on his part). Or perhaps he will come see his daughters. (also a wise decision considering his 'neglect of them' but further sealing my petition in court) The truly wise thing for him to do would be to go sign the declaration AND see his daughters but I honestly don't think he will. I am hoping he will let me know tonight so I can plan my day out tomorrow. Regardless, even if he does see them, it will only be for two hours and I have another 'chaperone' who is going to go with me as witness just in case anything weird or 'fishy' happens. Cuz God knows I DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN.
Back to the gym, I plan on doing my 60 mins on the elliptical and then my lower body workouts. My upper body is still mad at me from Friday and I know, I know . . . I said I was going to work out Monday - Saturday but as a personal trainer AND a couple family members pointed out; I need one day to rest completely and just hang out ... let my body mend. Because even though on Sundays I won't be going to the gym, I will still be lugging the girls to church, out to breakfast, probably around town for some extra curricular fun etc. So Saturday will be my stay at home and rest day. Gym will be Monday- Friday without fail - My shoulders, triceps and biceps are revolting just at the thought but they will be relieved when I work on my calves, thighs, and butt tomorrow. My abs, however, have another thing comin'.
And that my friends is all . . .
So tell me. What do you think? Will the girls' dad come to see them, go to his lawyers to sign the declaration, both or neither? I'm interested on your take.
