Lets hope you have enough Room for this....Talking third person is going to be something. So where do I begin, there are so many places, it could go crazy, but I will try to keep it easy. Lets start in December 2019, the Journey started pretty much then. All thought the catalyst was produced in September when the x wife decided to run off with a co worker, from Reno Nevada, left the state and Came back to Cincinnati Kentucky area. Move was made in 2018, for a job offer. OK so we begin, By this time, Kris had lost the job he had moved for. The hours were long, starting early and getting home late. Arrived late a couple of times, I mean when you are a single father, and really didnt get around to much, focusing on getting things done, new job, and everything in-between, didnt leave much time to find trust in people. so he did what he could, and that place of employment didnt seem to really care all that much of what happened, and that wouldnt grant him some time to figure things out. Mid December, Kris called his previous employer, Kern USA of Grove City OH. Asked for a position, which they were more than happy to provide. So, here Kris and his son Jesse, had to pack up what belongings they could, for a trip across the USA to Columbus Ohio. Kris did try to get some help packing things up. Needless to say, Kris and his son, packed up an F150 extended cab and a Ford Escape. most help they got was for a max of three hours from only one person. Everything else, all Kris and Jesse. Truck and escape packed, escape towed on a dolly, this trip begins on December 20. A few snags happened on the way, as they do. the morning of December 26th, Kris and Jesse arrive in Columbus. On the road, for that day that is the most important, for a 11 year old and he is sitting in a vehicle, just him and his father. I can only image how this little man feels right now. Life continued after arriving, new school familiar job and people, it wasn't to bad, but a lot has happened in a very short time, so the adjustments were slightly rough, but manageable, at that time. Trying to get Jesse out of the location we were staying at, The Arnold catches Kris's attention. Activities for the kids, thats really all it took. Thats the marker of when it became slightly more difficult than what it should have been, on top of everything else that was still being worked out. By this time, Mom had only seen the son twice. Once for his birthday, and the second to inform him that she would be moving to Mississippi. Like anything more was needed. getting off topic, sorry.. So we have a single father, his son and a new area. Granted lock down was in place, Kris has no family in the area. So, it wasn't as simple as having the son go to Grandpa's house for the day or any where else for that matter. Kris has an amazing employer, and they had no second thoughts and Jesse coming into the office on a daily basis so he could get done what he needed to. Kris still had a job to do as well. A good amount of time was spent at the office, but many times he did have to leave to respond to Maintenance calls that customers would make, when Kern equipment needed a technician for repairs and issues. So here Kris was, working and assisting his son during the lock down at the end of school year. With his employer being 100% supportive of what was going on. And this brings us to act two, which was very recent. over the forth of July weekend, Mom decides to call and drop some news and askes for help. Not going into details, but that ended with Kris driving to Mississippi, to pick up the, still married to, ready to file the papers needed, to end that status, wife. You could say saving her from a bad situation, between her and the guy she took off with from Nevada. I am going to put out there, Kris has got to be some type of stupid to agree to that, after everything that happened. Kris didnt have that type of thinking process. Tried to have her help her self and get her family involved, She didnt want to do that, and Kris didnt want anything to happen her because, well she was who she was. So, puts things on hold, employer agrees to leaving at a moments notice, and he picks her up from Mississippi, bringing her back to Columbus. It was under the notion that she would be staying around to help get things back into a better position. longer story short, she pulls a disappearing act on a Thursday morning, after getting he first full pay check, from a new job, she had for a short three weeks. Aug. 13th,. was the day. This plays a big role in the new coming school year. This is because Kris was trying to get Jesse transferred from SWCSD into the Dublin district. One would think, no problem. Well, have to think back to When the divorce was going to be filed, but wasn't. Mom, went back to Mississippi, with the same guy as before. With the divorce not being filed, this threw a Kink into the new school year. Jesse could not enroll into Dublin due to Mom not being in Ohio, and Kris not filing the papers, because of the phone call he had got back in July. Needed to show that Kris had what he needed, but didn't. So this throws everything into a limbo for Jesse to start school on time. Technically 9-8 was Jesse first day of school, blended back at SWCSD. Kris started to re enroll Jesse at SWCSD, after learning about what Dublin required, due to divorce and rights blah blah blah. Such a crap law..........It gets slightly technical here, and will not go into to much detail, Needless to say, Jesse started week and half late, which could have been longer if Kris would have not called SWCSD and spoke to them. He would have been on legal time waiting for the papers to get him into Dublin. So, as it stands now, Jesse is able to make up work in two of the classes, so far, the other teachers have not responded yet to emails sent explaining the situation. I am sure they will work something out. Either way, going forward, extra effort will be needed to get Jesse back on track, while he is still satisfying employer needs.
With everything that has come to be, and the weight being carried around, and the extra that was added recently, I nominate Kristopher Grimes. to go through everything that has happened with him and his son, they both have got to be mentally drained. Things would have been 100% better if the recent occurrence didnt happen as it did. So now, what was expected to be a smother start to this school year, turned into more stress filled, than the initial shut down itself.
Loper, Randi, can we Get super Hot For this Teacher?!!!
Its been a long road, just a little more to go.
