Tuesday I had court for my wreck. I showed up and the lady that hit me came in about 15 minutes late. When her name was called she went up without an attorney and asked for a continuous. The judge asked her what for and she said she hasn't retained an attorney yet because she didn't have money for one. So he told me to talk to the prosecutor and gave her another month, but excused me from having to go.
So I sat down with the city prosecutor and gave my statement. He is going to try and get me $558.00 from her. $250.00 for my deductible, $58.00 for my portion of out of pocket for my rental car and $250.00 for my inconvenience. So if he gets her to pay up, that would be really nice!
After court I went straight to work for a bit. It was nice to see everyone and meet the "new" employees that I hadn't met and just get my feet into my business once again.
After that I went home and relaxed for a bit and then took Cody to his soccer practice. Because of the rain we were rained out from our normal outdoor session and instead went to an indoor facility. The bad thing about that.....we couldn't practice til 8:30 PM and then it lasted til a little after 10:00 PM. So I came home and pretty much went straight to bed.
Wednesday morning I went to work for about 5 hours and then left to go to court again. This one was to testify on behalf of Lee's Summit for child endangerment charges. I don't know if you remember but a few months back Cody had saw a 7 year old upset and lost and brought him to me. After trying to find his mom's name in the phone book I called the police and asked them to help locate his parents. Mom shows up after the boy had been out for probably over an hour and got rude with the officer because he was holding her up from watching something on TV. She was something. So the scary thing is at court she had an attorney and the judge asked her why she continued this case twice and her attorney said because she thought this was something she could handle on her own but due to her being an RN, she could face losing her license if found guilty. Holy cow....she doesn't care that her 6 year old is wandering around and she is a nurse? I hope I never walk into our local hospital needing help and find her taking care of me.
After court I came home and relaxed some more. Nothing to exciting but I think I'll take these boring days any day of the week!!
Here are a few pictures from over the last few months. This one is a pic of Coltan with his sister CJ. This picture was taken just a little over a week before she turned the big ONE. Carson and his smiling face.
Showing me that he can drink from a big boy cup. His new thing is to walk over to the fridge and fill the cup up with water and then walk over to the sink and dump it.
