Well, easy child lost her mind. (see earlier post on difficult child behavior) I found out boyfriend was stalking her relentlessly. She was trying to make him think she had found someone bigger and badder. I called he and parents and asked that he cease and disist. Was promised he would. I think she will be okay now. PCson lost his job. Nationwide cutbacks in building industry. He just bought a house in January. Hope something comes along quickly. and difficult child is just lost. husband and I asked him to only return to our home to pick up belongings---he could no longer live there. husband will probably relent today. I am practicing my detachment skills and still planning a get-away. Even if its for one day.
