... since husband still doesn't "get it" in regard to how serious this is. He often says that "Something is going to change." And then does nothing about it, in my humble opinion. The problem is, if difficult child is still at home, and I'm not, then what sorts of trouble will he get into, even more than what he already has? Right now, I can cart him around and do errands, just like when he was 2 or 3, to keep an eye on him. I applied for an artist position at the local Trader Joe's. Don't know if I'll get it but it sure would help to have something consistent. My last portrait comission was a month ago. I've often said that if I worked FT in the corporate world, I would have been fired by now, because of difficult child. So far, I've been lucky, in that I can mostly paint at home, and that my work at Macy's was only PT temporary just b4 the holidays, and my supervisor was unbelievably understanding and user-friendly.
