Those of you who have read my posts in the watercooler section are aware that my husband and I are going to seperate for awhile to work through a few "issues". I am going to suggest he get an apartment and I will remain in the house with my easy child daughter until we decide what we are going to do. Now, difficult child has met this wonderful girl who is such a huge positive influence on his life and now has to move over an hour away because that is where her family is moving. Her and difficult child want to get an apartment together but cannot afford the security and everthing else that goes with first obtaining the apartment because his rent at the soberhouse is pretty high. Before all this happened with husband we were considering helping them out with the security deposit just to give them a start because he is doing so incredibly well and we think this may be a great chance for him to continue to move ahead. Now that we are going to have to come up with security and monthly rent for husband until we decide what to do, I am throwing around the idea of seeing if difficult child and girlfriend want to rent a room in my house with many established boundaries and time frames, charge them a smaller amount of rent then difficult child is paying right now which would help us out financially supporting husband's apartment and allowing difficult child and girlfriend to save for there own. I can't believe I'm thinking this because if you read my profile it says, "difficult child never to live home again". I guess this is why they say, never say never. I know this would be a totally different kid coming home to live and it wouldn't be forever. We would kind of be helping each other out right now in a temporary situation. This is just a thought. What do you all think??????? Of course I will discuss this with my counselor next week also before I make any final decisions.
