wm called tonight - voluntarily, with-o a reminder. (We have a call schedule.) I know when wm calls voluntarily the $hit has hit the fan at group home. As I've stated earlier, wm is scraping the bottom of the barrel behavior wise. wm made a "poor" choice today & is paying the consequence. wm begins trying to guilt me then husband; trying to explain away his choices because he's never coming home again (never say never, wm). After a litany of of woe is me & but it's so hard, I tried to break the cycle of negatives. I asked wm for one, just one, good thing that he could think of for today. "Sniff, gulp, sniff....well, at least I'm still alive". I know this is bad, but I had to hand the phone over to husband because I started laughing so hard I about peed my pants. wm tries the same act with husband. In the meantime, I started playing Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen on the piano. husband is slapping me on the head - asking me to stop. It was so comical. wm handed the phone to foster mum & I'm sorry but she was cracking up on the other end. Poor wm, nobody loves him....nobody cares. After we all stopped the hilarity, foster mum asked me how I was. My reply "sniff, gulp, sniff - well, at least I'm still alive". The laughter started again. Sometimes it's bittersweet the things we find funny. Just couldn't stop myself tonight.
