So much to do and so little time

I feel like I am being pulled in a million directions.  We just moved into a house and we are trying to unpack in the few hours we have between work and taking care of kids.  We lived with my mother-in-law for a year so we are also trying to get everything else out of my mother-in-laws house so her daughter and her family can move in.  Then I have to clean her house.  Plus taking care of my three kids full time and his two on the weekends.  But I am bringing some of this on myself.  I had plans to do laundry tonight but of course I call some friends and invite them over for dinner.  I also have scheduled a pampered chef party for this weekend at my house.  Even with nothing really unpacked and decorated.  Am I crazy?  Why am I doing this to myself?  I really just need to focus this weekend and get all the unpacking done because I have a feeling I will have even less time to work on this next weekend since I will have all my kids.  As an extra bonus to my life, my ex-husband is moving about 5 miles away from me.  This will be great for the children since right now he doesn't get to see them often because he lives a little over an hour away.  Now he will be able to get them just about any time he wants to see them.  It isn't going to be bad for me though because my and my ex get a long for the most part.  I just can't stand the woman he is with because she was the one he left me for.  But thankfully we stay out of each others life and only talk when it comes to the kids.  I have it good that way.  But I have a feeling my over-jealous husband is going to have issues with this.  He already things that my ex wants me back and can't stand that we get along so well.  I just hope that everything works out.

The horrible, no good, very bad day

So today my husband had to go to court over his parenting plan with his ex-wife.  Just a little history about this woman....She is completely psycho.  There are really no other words that would describe her perfectly like this one does.  She is the worst human being I have ever met in my life.  She doesn't care about her children and only wants the child support money.  He has two children with her.  She drops them off at the house randomly and pulls out of the driveway before she even sees them walk in the house.  She has no clue if we are home or not.  DCS has been called on her numerous times because of pills that were found in her car but nothing has happened.  She brings the children over in flip flops during the winter and most of the time the children are not wearing underwear or socks.  She receives child support regularly but uses it to get her nails and hair done.  She doesn't pay her bills.  The children have sometimes been with electricity and the house and car is under bankruptcy.  But apparently the judge in our area sees her as a fit mother.  They went today to court to revise the parenting plan and the judge took even more days away from my husband and ordered $160 more in child support every month.  I am so sick of this.  I guess our only option is to save up enough money for an awesome lawyer and drag her through the mud to get full custody of the children.  I don't know what the judge is thinking.  I feel bad for the kids because they are the ones that are going to hurt the most from this.
