About a week ago I got a message from difficult child saying he needed a huge favor. He is without any ID and needs me to contact the state to get a copy. I was so not amused!!! I have been down this road before a few times with him. 6 years ago I gave him my final copies of his birth certificate and told him that was it, no more coming to me when he loses it. Of course he did lose it and came to me once again and when I told him I had given him the last copy he said I was lying and that turned into one of those battles you never win. As much as I would like to tell him this again I know better than to engage it. So, here we go again. I told my husband and he of course is much softer than I and said we need to do something to help him. difficult child claims he is trying to get his life back on track (true or false - only time will tell). I reluctantly told difficult child that husband would be contacting the state to find out what needs to be done, I made husband call as I was not going to. I got the form and filled it out, put that and a check for $65.00 in the mail to the state. Of course once I receive the copy in the mail I will then have to get it to difficult child who is currently homeless in another state. All I can say is I'm not happy about doing this but I don't want to argue with husband over it. I have been very busy this month with Christmas not to mention having a bad cold. Oh well, once it's done it's done and if he ever loses it again, I WILL NOT help him. He will be 34 next month, time to grow up. I do hope that difficult child is telling the truth and really wants to get his life back on track but I will believe it when I see it as I've heard this all before. Anyway, thanks gang for letting me vent!!
