Good Morning DDD! ;-)
Always so nice to hear from you.
Well...where to begin?
A few weeks ago, difficult child turned himself into Jail for 3 days for a warrant he says he had for no Insurance ticket he received last year. Then...
I made some calls to difficult child's Mother in law's house and spoke with mother in law and she told me an interesting thing. She said that daughter in law had gone to pick up a rx for xanax and that 24 out of 30 pills were missing and that daughter in law said she "took some and shared some with a friend". mother in law also stated that she did NOT want me to tell daughter in law or difficult child that she and I had talked...said, "I don't want to get in trouble". OH MY. I told my husband that she needs a MAN in her house. She (mother in law) has no backbone in her own home. It is so sad.
Soooo...after I found out about the xanax that apparently Young difficult child and daughter in law took. I then get a frantic text (from daughter in law)that Saturday morning that young difficult child is in the hospital and is "temporarily partially paralyzed" due to his back. I had no access to a car that morning and could not go to the hospital but did speak with mother in law again and she let me know that daughter in law brought young difficult child back to her house and that he seemed "well enough to walk in the door".
SInce I did not JUMP when daughter in law called me about the "temporary paralysation", daughter in law has only texted me briefly to let me know how serious this was and how upset she was that I wasn't there.
Now...moving forward, lol. Young difficult child is supposibly starting a job today that will take him to Missouri and then flying out to California. He has been by twice this past week to pick up his birth certificate docs and DD214 (military discharge paperwork that I held for him). He was frantically trying to get ahold of $$ the past couple of days (through me of course) for tools he says he needs....but I have been on the go.
My mom just had catarac surgery in her left eye and so I took care of her for a couple of days...OH, and the night before her surgery, she and I went to see Cher in concert. My mom and I have been trying to repair what was a fairly broken down relationship. We have been in therapy for a few months now...and it is helping. The nice thing too is that our therapist is well-versed in addition and gives me very good suggestions on how to handle things with young difficult child.
Meanwhile...easy child was supposed to graduate this yr but because she lost her scholarship after her Junior yr and moved back home to attend local University...she lost some credits. So that means that easy child will likely graduated next yr. easy child is still dating a very nice 28 yr old who aspires to be a Neurologist. She is also going to finish Massage Therapy school (that she attends class for at night) sometime in August and then wants to finish her Bachelors and then perhaps take a yr off to work on a cruise ship as a Massage Therapist and travel some.
Whatever she wants to do I am sure she will go far.
Oldest difficult child...he and his wife had a Birthday party for their 4 yr old. Yes...sadly I say "their" instead "my grandchild". As you may have noticed from previous posts, I do not have much of a relationship with any of oldest difficult child's 3 daughters. It is very sad. Distance is a factor...but so is emotional distance.
What happend the other day is that oldest difficult child does not know that easy child has been dating young men recently (as opposted to young women) so Oldest difficult child is self riteous and judgemental...inflicting punishment on easy child. easy child, you see, was not invited to the party. So husband said if she is not invited we are not going either. Oldest difficult child thinks that if he overprotects and isolates his little family that they will be "safe" in the end I guess. But we all know that's not necessarily how life works, huh.
So all in all things are not "bad" here...but could certainly be better! Young difficult child is at the top today as he starts this new job. Sigh...but you know about that darned roller coaster ride!
How are you doing anyway? How is easy child/difficult child? I say prayers for you guys almost every night.
Love to you,
