    easy child lost her mind. (see earlier post on difficult child behavior) I found out boyfriend was stalking her relentlessly. She was trying to make him think she had found someone bigger and badder. I called he and parents and asked that he cease and disist. Was promised he would. I think she will be okay now.

    PCson lost his job. Nationwide cutbacks in building industry. He just bought a house in January. Hope something comes along quickly.

    and difficult child is just lost. husband and I asked him to only return to our home to pick up belongings---he could no longer live there. husband will probably relent today.

    I am practicing my detachment skills and still planning a get-away. Even if its for one day.

    I'm sorry :flower: - your initial post just had the first sentence. I see you hit submit before you were finished.

    Keep up those detachment skills - it's a wonderful thing.

    Take care of yourself. :bath: Keep planning that getaway. Nothing better than respite. :flower:

    Well, poo. :sad: I eagerly wanted to find out how you'd redone your week, because there's lots of weeks I'd like to redo, but alas was just your post you had edited. :rofl:

    Ah well, hope you can get that time away for yourself, to relax and recharge.

    I wouldn't relive this week for anything. But, as always a day makes such a difference. PCdaughter is back to her regular bratty self---but sweet and loving and sees her wrong doing. PCson has already recieved a job offer from a vendor who supplied to his last job---at 7:45 this morning. He called his dad. He has 3 months of bills in savings and severance pay---so he is okay for now. And difficult child---well, he is still lost. He has talked to his dad. He went out looking for work today. He aplogized for his latest stunt---and...tomorrow is another day!!!

    Thanks Wendy. The ups and downs of life with a difficult child is never dull. Add in the regular stresses and it becomes....well....dizzying. But, I'm better---and my living room floor is finished...Now, on to the kitchen!
