    My easy child/difficult child goes back to court on 9/11. The date has me a bit
    intimidated......even though I am not really supersticious. My
    husband and I are heading to the East coast to share my sisters 50th
    anniversary. We have our pockets stuffed with dough (and a few
    OLD pictures..lol). easy child/difficult child and difficult child are comfortable with us taking off and having a break. :smile:

    BUT.....could you guys just remember that on 9/11 my baby will be
    before the judicial system here which is NOT a healthy place to
    be. Would you please just pray that he gets a program instead of
    prison for his stupidity?? Honestly, he has NOT done anything that would justify a prison term...truly.

    If I know you guys are praying for him, I am going to try to party hearty at one of my lifelong famous restaurants on the
    Atlantic Ocean. I've told husband I do NOT want to know the bill. I
    have given him the plastic and we can cover it.

    Wimpy as it sounds.............I need to chill for at least one
    night. I trust you all to pick up the slack. I don't intend to
    check in until after Court on Tuesday. Probably they will, once
    again, continue his case. No matter. You guys know me better
    than my family. I am stiflying tears because I am afraid that my
    baby could end up being a victim of "the system". on the other hand, I still
    remember how to party hearty and I'm going to do it.

    I'll check in Tuesday.

    Hugs. DDD

    :flower: You go & have a WONDERFUL time, DDD. We'll Keep the Fort while you're away.

    My heart will be filled with many prayers on 9/11 , truthfully it creeps me out a bit that it falls on Tuesday this year. I will add difficult child/easy child to my prayers.

    You go and enjoy yourself. Try to clear your mind and have a good time. We'll do the worrying and fretting here. I'm not doing it for my difficult child anyway! Have a cutty on me!

    DDD, of COURSE you have our prayers, and I'm keeping everything crossed.

    I hope you make time to relax and that everything goes well....

    God give you some time to rest and renew. even Jesus went out on the boat onto the lake to escape the chaos and crowds.

    may the judge have the insight and intelligence, the compassion and wisdom of Solomon in seeing this case thru.

    Move over, DDD and Suz, I'm joining you both. :smile:

    I'll definitely be sending many good thoughts that way, DDD. I'm hopeful that they see that punishing him is NOT the answer.

    Sending mega hugs,

    Thanks. I'm back. I had a great time. I am VERY nervous about
    tomorrow and am glad you all are covering my back. His memory
    is really messed up and I assume it is from the stress of the
    unknown. We all feel horribly vulnerable. Please keep praying.

    I'm with you on the party hearty train :smile:

    Got myself all pretzel twisted and the prayer requests on overtime :angel:

    {{{sunny hugs}}}} for your mama heart and for easy child/difficult child who needs help and direction and not just to be a notch in someone's "win" column.
