difficult child called. Pathetic. Says he has 69 cents to his name, no gas, can't get to work tomorrow and will be tossed out on Thursday for non-payment of rent. He got a discussion entitled, "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." I agreed to go there tomorrow. Pay last week's rent. Fill his car. Give him a small amount of cash. He agreed to look for a new job which doesn't interfere with mandatory sober house meetings. The most important thing is that he will be kind to me or I'm done. Not going to hand him hundreds of dollars a month and listen to his rude, passive-aggressive crud one more second. He agreed to help with whatever I couldn't easily do for myself whenever he is in town. His rent is due again on Friday. He wants me to pay that too. I told him we'd see whether he could be kind to me between now and then. Don't get me wrong...I am thrilled he is sober. But it is time he stop some of the dry drunk behavior. I have tried many other things without success. Everyone says he is taking it all out on me cause he knows I won't leave him. The fool even criticized me for buying myself a new desk. $95. My old one was broken. Gee, I must stop being such a spendthrift...eyeroll. Going to be diligent with him. Every single out of line remark will be returned with a simple, "You promised to be kind." If he doesn't stop, I'm done and so is my checkbook. If he chooses to live in a homeless shelter instead of being kind to me, then he belongs there. They are all so selfish. I want to start a new planet. No selfish people allowed. Can you imagine how blissful that would be?!?
