I can’t lie about how intimidating my boyfriend’s past can be. I’ve lived most of my life as a single woman–and not a popular one, at that. He was one of the most popular kids in his school, pretty much having a steady girlfriend since before high school. In fact, he has been married before and has a child with his ex. Obviously, this is a big part of his life, and mine as well. To me, his child is also my own, and I love getting to spend time with the little guy. If only his mom wasn’t a total nightmare. She makes it genuinely strenuous to see him, let alone spend quality time together. However currently, she is fighting a legal battle to prevent our 50 day summer visit. She has come up with every hurdle possible, including demands for his study room setup, our dog’s health records, and even reports on our current home ventilation plan. She suddenly insists that there are qualifications for our indoor air temperature control system, and is now threatening to refuse visitation if the two of us don’t supply purchase and repair records for all of our Heating & Air Conditioning equipment. She has decided that the two of us must have heating and cooling unit that isn’t any older than 3 years old, under manufacturer warranty. On top of that, she wants explicit routine repair records from a reputable Heating & Air Conditioning dealership! Further, she has gone on to insist that now the two of us need to invest in an industrial grade home air purifier, despite the fact that this air handling unit costs over $3000. She, of course, doesn’t see anything ridiculous about that. She has no legal grounds for these ventilation demands, but the two of us have pretty much become HVAC systems pros since hearing her continual assertions.
