easy child works at exclusive rest. on the lake. difficult child,difficult child buddy and two girls had dinner there last night. easy child said he looked great. Recent haircut,new clothes and shoes. She said he was really nice to her and seemed geniuely interested in what had been going on since she last talked to him. He is now living with yet another difficult child buddy in another town. On my going list this will be the last of the great difficult child buddies he has to live with. I have very mixed feelings. I was glad to hear he looked well and thankful to know he was okay. Then I felt like he is still so far from hitting bottom and seeing what he is doing with his life. I am sure he will find others to help him. But, this is the last of the "old" difficult child friends he has. He did tell easy child he no longer talks to the other buddies that he had lived with. in my opinion he takes as much as he can from the situation and when people get tired of his antics he just moves on to the next place. I just keep the hope that it will catch up to him soon.
