My guy has quite a past. Not in the brooding bad boy way, but while I’ve lived most of my life as a single woman, he’s pretty much consistently been in serious relationships. He’s been married, actually, and has a kid with his ex. Needless to say, that’s an important part of his life–and by default, mine. To me, his kid is my own, and I get every minute of time with the little guy as I can… But trying to spend that quality time is a nightmare thanks to my man’s ex. She makes it genuinely strenuous to see him, let alone spend quality time together. In the most recent developments, she’s fighting a legal battle to prevent our 60 day summer season visit. She’s come up with hurdles I would have never dreamed of, including demands for his play room setup, our cat’s health records, and even reports on our house’s ventilation plan. Out of the blue, she insists that there are qualifications for our indoor air temperature control system, and has begun threatening to refuse visitation if both of us don’t supply purchase and service records for all of our HVAC equipment. She has decided that both of us must have a heating and cooling device that’s less than 3 years old, under manufacturer warranty, and explicit routine service records from a reputable HVAC dealership. And that’s not all. She has gone on to insist that now both of us need to invest in an industrial grade media air cleaner, despite the fact that this air handling device costs over $3000. She thinks it’s an adequate provision. She has no legal grounds for these ventilation demands, however both of us have learned a heck of a lot about HVAC systems since she started this nonsense.
