Our son FB messaged Lil on the last day of our vacation at like 4 in the morning. We were in an area with no signal for our carrier (kind of on purpose!) so she didn't actually get the message until we stopped at a gas station that had wi-fi. The only reason she even logged in there was for directions as we were relying on GPS and Google Maps to see a few sights on our way home. It was the usual "she's about to break up with me, they're about to kick me out, they're all stupid, one is a thief (yeah, figure that one out), what am I going to do?!?!?!" freak out. She chose not to respond but it set the tone for the next several hours of driving. She responded with something like "I'm sorry this is happening" yada yada yada and he responded back apologizing for freaking out. This was Sunday. Last night he starts in again with the same bs...they wont take him into town to sign up for food stamps, there's no food in the house, they only eat some fast food like every other day, along with the previously mentioned freak out items. The one he kept harping on was the need for a ride either into town to get signed up for food stamps or to the town he went to college in, presumably to hook up with his buddy who had come up here briefly. This went on for 20 minutes or so until Lil finally mentioned that I have a sister living in the town he is trying to get to, maybe she would give him a ride since we cant because he moved an hour and a half away. A thank you and that ends the conversation. All that time and effort just to get his mom to tell him what to do? This is more of a rant that anything because I just don't get it. How can someone spend several years of their life willfully ignoring our advice and actively trying to ignore us when we tell him something, only to apparently want us, his mom anyway, to tell him what to do? Seriously, it was like a switch was thrown as soon as she offered a solution. Thanks Mom! Rant over! Sorry, just tired and frustrated. Haven't slept well for the last few days.
