I know I shouldn't be- goodness knows I have plenty to do. But after getting up before 6:00, going to an appointment at DSS, checking emails at the library to see if anyone wants to buy anything, looking at refurbished laptops on the way to VA, spending a couple of hours at VA turning in an application for housing and trying to see a therapist (didn't happen), trying to sell difficult child's old clothes at a consignment shop (didn't work by the way), going home to call people who'd emailed and showing stuff.....well, I'm just too tired to do much anymore. I have hauled huge bags of clothing, stools, etc., for a week and I'm sore and tired. LOL! And I want a computer back at home! At least the guy is supposed to come later this evening to get the piano. If I get a couple of bigger things sold tomorrow, I can feel comfortable getting the laptop (refurbished). Janet, seriously, if you think one of your boys can help me get a new one for less than 250, please let me know! The one I looked at today comes with Windows only but if I can find my Office CD, they said I could load it on this laptop. It has WiFi, CD burner, and capabilities to connect to my old hard drive. Apparently those netbooks don't have all those capabilities- they have internet only, I think. So my back hurts too much to do anything strenuous but staring at a TV at home is boring me to tears and if I got comfortable and tried to read, I have a feeling I'd be asleep in about 2 mins. LOL! So there is my whine for the day!! Oh yeah- I got a voice mail from PO today- difficult child's drug test was positive for pot. I spoke with the new GAL yesterday and he wanted to know what my feelings were about difficult child going back to Department of Juvenile Justice. Huh? Well, considering how well this rehabilitated him the last time, how does he think I feel about it? (Nope- I didn't say that but thought it) on the other hand, when all I hear is that he doesn't qualify for services that are available when on probation, and no other services or transitional plan is available for him, then what difference does it make? If they are asking what my thoughts are on the three choices- home, Department of Juvenile Justice, or dss/my bro.....right now, Department of Juvenile Justice. What else can I say at this point? But it's killing me inside- he learns even worse and becomes even less able to survive ITRW while in there. difficult child told me when I spoke to him last that he spent the first two months in Department of Juvenile Justice last year scared out of his mind, then he said his heart died and he gave in and quit caring. Lovely things for a mother to hear, huh?
