difficult child sent me a text this afternoon asking if her roommate could come to Thanksgiving dinner. This is the same guy that she had just met and let move in and who wanted us to give him our futon from the basement because he a was sleeping on the floor and had no furniture. My first reaction was no but I didn't answer right away so I had time to think and talk to husband. I asked my easy child if she minded because it's her birthday too and we are celebrating it on Thanksgiving and I didn;t want her to be uncomfortable. She said it was our call and was probably the point where we had to practice what we preach and Thanksgiving was a time of giving and no one should be alone that day but did we check if he had a record. So I checked the public records for both the municipal and common pleas court and he was arrested for fellonious assault last year. It was bound over to the grand jury but there the record stopped so I have no idea what happened. After talking to husband we agreed I should text her and ask her what happened with his arrest before we answered. That was a couple hours ago and she has not responded. We are plannign on telling her that we have a right to know who is coming into our home so we would like to know what happened to that case to decide if we are comfortable with it. I suspect she is angry and just won't answer. On one hand I don't want to convict someone unfairly but on the other hand I am so dang tired of having to associate with the criminal element she surrounds herself with.
