In October difficult child was riding with a friend in friend's car.. Friend threw a cigarette out the window, they were pulled, and to make a long story short, difficult child was taken to jail for a marijuana seed and the tip of a blunt. difficult child borrowed the money for a lawyer. His lawyer called yesterday. If difficult child went and took a drug test and tested clean, the judge agreed to drop both charges. He went today, he tested clean, and he will be cleared of both charges. He has another charge pending for the county. Two weeks later he was at same guys's house. He was asleep. Cops busted in, friend wasn't there. They had a warrant. Searched house and threatened difficult child with whatever was found. difficult child got scared, he gave them a joint in the ashtray and he got charged with simple possession---a piece of a joint. He has asked for a jury trial. He is doing good. He moved back in with gfgbiomom (my mom) and is living with her. He has a girl friend, who seems to be a bit gfgish herself, but she is a nice girl. Her family loves difficult child. She has a 5 year old son who adores difficult child. He is still working the restaurant biz, but if he can stay clean I am hoping he can get a good, steady job in an industry in town. husband, I, or another family member could proabably get him in one of the large industries, but we won't put our name on anything until he proves himself. It's been a long 6 years of this stuff with hiim. I am hoping it is winding down now.
