Hello old friends, hello new members. It's been two years since I've posted. Last posts were of the losses I suffered in '05. My life went to hell in a handbasket as a result and I'm still trying to make my way back. I won't bore you with the difficult child stuff right now, just to say YES they are BOTH STILL difficult child's!!! Michael, now 24 and his now former girlfriend moved back to PA from MD. They remain friends and are both active in raising their beautiful daughter who will be two on 10/17. Nicole, turning 27 10/8, first and foremost DIVORCED BIO-IDIOT!!!!!! He still / again sits in state prison, I have no clue when he'll get out. Hoping T will be old enough to be able to legally tell him to kiss off. She's in a relationship with- someone and T has a new baby sister at home, born this year 2/8. As if having three grandchildren doesn't already make me feel old, the fourth is on it's way already and is due only two days after the baby's b-day. I've made it perfectly clear that I'm infuriated about the situation, but obviously what's done is done - I'll love my fourth grandchild just as much. Trust me when I tell you that there are MANY gaps that could be filled in in the above paragraphs, but as I said, I'll spare you. husband is doing well, working hard as always. He always has been and continues to be my sanity. I'm on medications and in counseling since late '05 trying to deal with- many things. One day I'll have some sanity back in my life. I honestly don't know what made me bring up the board today. There's so much I have to do (never enough hours in my day) and other things I needed to do online tonight, but brought this up. I'm thinking my subconscious is working Occupational Therapist (OT) (again), as T (who is eight now - nine in December!) is headed down the path of destruction like his Uncle M and the bio-idiot. ( I'll try to pop in more often. In glancing around, I see there are still MANY alumni still hanging around! :O) Until another day.... Take care of you.
