difficult child comes home tomorrow. We have a family meeting before his release and I'm told it will last about 2 hours. I am glad for that since there has been little imput from the facility as to what we should expect and how we can help him with his medications etc. This is going to be a real tricky thing for husband and I to not enable but still make easy child/difficult child's life managable. I am scared he will relapse. I am scared he will drink. I am scared he will not be accepted by his fellow employees when he tries to go back to work. I ned to get a support group for myself so will be checking out Alnon around here and maybe NAMI although we had a bad experience with them a few years back. Maybe it will be different since we have moved. I do not have everything ready for his homecomming but what is... is. We will just have to continue to plug away at things till we get it all done. He and husband can bring his bed over tomorrow afternoon. the rest can be moved during the week. I need to clean the house still for the family gathering on Saturday. Hopefully he and husband can help with that. I have most of my Christmas gifts wrapped, not as elaborately as in past years but they are wrapped LOL. I will be catering in some of the food for dinner Christmas eve. that is if I remember to order the platters tomorrow. I will cook prepared ravioli and salad and meatballs and end it with store bought baked goods. I went to our favorite Italian resturant yesterday to get the sauce but they didn't have it. I had called ahead and drove an hour for it but they didn't have it when I got there. I was angry but shrugged it off and went to the eye doctor next door instead. I had lost my glasses and he fit me in and did my exam and he called today to say my contacts came in. I am hoping my sister in law can pick them up for me tomorrow. I'll have him check for the sauce too if he does LOL. Anyway I am worried that easy child/difficult child might be overwhelmed at all the holiday fuss. I am going to tell him that it is OK to excuse himself and go upstairs if he is. if anyone has other suggestions they are appreciated.
