9/11 Update...Thanks!


Well-Known Member
My easy child/difficult child goes back to court on 9/11. The date has me a bit
intimidated......even though I am not really supersticious. My
husband and I are heading to the East coast to share my sisters 50th
anniversary. We have our pockets stuffed with dough (and a few
OLD pictures..lol). easy child/difficult child and difficult child are comfortable with us taking off and having a break. :smile:

BUT.....could you guys just remember that on 9/11 my baby will be
before the judicial system here which is NOT a healthy place to
be. Would you please just pray that he gets a program instead of
prison for his stupidity?? Honestly, he has NOT done anything that would justify a prison term...truly.

If I know you guys are praying for him, I am going to try to party hearty at one of my lifelong famous restaurants on the
Atlantic Ocean. I've told husband I do NOT want to know the bill. I
have given him the plastic and we can cover it.

Wimpy as it sounds.............I need to chill for at least one
night. I trust you all to pick up the slack. I don't intend to
check in until after Court on Tuesday. Probably they will, once
again, continue his case. No matter. You guys know me better
than my family. I am stiflying tears because I am afraid that my
baby could end up being a victim of "the system". on the other hand, I still
remember how to party hearty and I'm going to do it.

I'll check in Tuesday.

Hugs. DDD

:flower: You go & have a WONDERFUL time, DDD. We'll Keep the Fort while you're away.

My heart will be filled with many prayers on 9/11 , truthfully it creeps me out a bit that it falls on Tuesday this year. I will add difficult child/easy child to my prayers.

You go and enjoy yourself. Try to clear your mind and have a good time. We'll do the worrying and fretting here. I'm not doing it for my difficult child anyway! Have a cutty on me!



DDD, of COURSE you have our prayers, and I'm keeping everything crossed.

I hope you make time to relax and that everything goes well....

God give you some time to rest and renew. even Jesus went out on the boat onto the lake to escape the chaos and crowds.

may the judge have the insight and intelligence, the compassion and wisdom of Solomon in seeing this case thru.

Yep, I'm on board, too. Sending good thoughts from here but I also intend to cyber myself to your table so I can party with you! :smile: .

Move over, DDD and Suz, I'm joining you both. :smile:

I'll definitely be sending many good thoughts that way, DDD. I'm hopeful that they see that punishing him is NOT the answer.

Sending mega hugs,

Prayers on board here. We have him covered.

Go forth and Party!! You have earned this day of celebration. Celebrate YOU, because you are a truly FABULOUS woman, a lady of the highest caliber and the strongest constitution.

You are a warrior mom!! Go and party, it keeps the armor lubricated!!

Thanks. I'm back. I had a great time. I am VERY nervous about
tomorrow and am glad you all are covering my back. His memory
is really messed up and I assume it is from the stress of the
unknown. We all feel horribly vulnerable. Please keep praying.

I'm with you on the party hearty train :smile:

Got myself all pretzel twisted and the prayer requests on overtime :angel:

{{{sunny hugs}}}} for your mama heart and for easy child/difficult child who needs help and direction and not just to be a notch in someone's "win" column.
