Well, one of difficult child's friends is homeless. They have been hinting for quite a while that she needs some place to stay. I won't go into the back story right now, but I finally agreed to let her stay. I set up a time for her to come tomorrow and talk to me. I really do not feel like for her to stay here at all, but I can not see this girl out in the street. She is in dire straights. I purposely said no for the past week (where as before, I would have easily let her stay with me because I am a door mat), but tonight I saw her, and she is on the brink. She is a difficult child too just in a different way (spoiled rich girl) from my difficult child, but at least she really respects me and that is the only reason why I am considering it. I know for a fact that she will not purposely cause trouble here and will be on her best behavior. My plan is to tell her two weeks at the most, that is for certain (hoping only for a few days). Most of all, she better appreciate what I am doing for her and I am the type of person who keeps track of what I do for people because if I ever need a favor, I expect to have the favored returned. Oh man, I feel so don't feel like having another person here. It's the LAST thing that I want, things are hard here too. My difficult child told her that at least. difficult child told friend "it's no different at my house, so don't expect too much. Mom has a lot of rules and we are going through our own stuff". So at least there's that. During the talk I have with her tomorrow, I want her to be honest with me, that is so important.
