I am back.........I have traveled to 6 states in 6 days......... and I am a marsh mellow. I missed you guys!!! I have not been offered the job yet in AZ........but, hopefully will hear something by tomorrow. After a couple of days of thinking, if they offer it to me, I will take it. I need a new life. Period. I am unbelievably proud to say that difficult child is awesome. We had a great visit, (minus my own personal meltdowns), and he was able to transition back into his program from our visit, with little to no drama. I am amazingly impressed with this program after visiting with difficult child for 3 days ~ they have instilled in difficult child what I thought was not possible. For the first time in 6 years, I see the old spirited difficult child back ~ the one who made friends easily, and was smart and witty, and magnetic. He still has a million challenges, (because obviously he is a difficult child), but the obstacles seem less now, than they ever have before. I know I need to catch up with everyone ~ so I will be reading and responding soon. For tonight, I might catch up on my TIVO, and crash. Hugs.
