Sigh... I'm just not ready for this, nor in the mood. They're having a staffing crisis at difficult child's Residential Treatment Center (RTC). They fired the Site Manager suddenly last week, and 2 other staff quit in the upheaval, so they don't have enough overnight coverage right now while they scramble to find replacements. After exhausting all other possible avenues, husband decided to bring difficult child home until the weekend. Then he goes to his sister's for the weekend, at which time we hope the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) staffing situation will be resolved. I knew it might come to this, but was really hoping it wouldn't. Little easy child will be safely ensconced with relatives. I don't trust difficult child's stability enough to bring them together yet. difficult child will be in a day program during the workday, so THANK GOODNESS I won't have a repeat performance of bringing difficult child to the office with me, but I'm just not prepared to have him home right now. I feel guilty, and resentful, and frustrated, and all sorts of other things. I should be happy to have the chance to spend some time with my boy, catch up on his life, blah blah blah. But truly, I just don't want to deal with it right now. I'm dreading going home tonight after work, because difficult child will already be there. I feel like a bad mom.
