An update, just because. I still read once in awhile but don't comment often, I'm just overwhelmed with my own stuff and sometimes just don't have much to say. Youngest is still living with me, along with my grandson Aidan who is now 5 months old. Aidan is the best baby you could imagine, happy with a sweet, friendly disposition, always smiling. Youngests boyfriend is still in the picture off and on, she refuses to go after him for child support, and he contributes little to nothing towards his son. Youngest has a full-time job as a teacher at a day care center. Aidan is on Medicaid and receives WIC and daycare assistance through the county. Youngest will have her own insurance through work when she hits the 90 day mark (shes only been there two weeks). She still has ups and downs, but is back on Lamictal and is seeing a counselor and psychiatrist through the county as well, sticking with it so far. Shes on the waiting list for Section 8, with luck shell be on it by year-end. She WANTS to move out and be on her own, so that is huge in my book. I wish shed dump the no-good, abusive, blood-sucking boyfriend, but I have no control over that and am trying hard to detach and keep my mouth shut. Oldest got married last weekend to an Army man she met in March. They did most of the wedding planning themselves, and I paid for her dress and Youngests dress to wear in the wedding (maid of honor). I didnt even buy myself a dress, I made myself broke with the others. It was very small and simple ceremony. I didnt even talk about it to a lot of people until about two weeks before it happened, because honestly I wasnt sure it was going to actually happen. But, Oldests husband seems to be able to deal with her mood swings, which is good and bad I suppose.. I feel sorry for him, she uses him and verbally abuses him often, but honestly it takes some of that heat off of me, you know? Hes a good guy, but, in addition to being majorly codependent (who else would put up with Oldest?), he seems as irresponsible as she is, or at least going along for the ride. They were evicted from their apartment yesterday, are $800 overdrawn in their checking account, which is a great way to start a marriage, huh? They are staying with friends until they can get on-base housing. Oldest confided in Youngest that her drivers license is suspended again for not paying her car insurance. She drives anyway, of course. Theyve already got orders to go to Korea next year Oldest in Korea, oh my . itll either be good for her, or will push her over the edge if, of course, they are still together by then. My how jaded I am! Do you ever feel like youre in the middle of a bad Lifetime movie?! The ones that normal people watch and say, oh thats just SO drama-filled, nothing like that ever happens in real life .. .except you know it does?! Ahh well. Im hanging in there.
