things look hopeful

Hubby took oldest out to dinner last night and they had a long talk. He felt much better when he got home. He said she seemed much better as well. Today he contacted the lawyer and we have a meeting first thing Monday morning.

This afternoon hubby found oldest printing information off on how to become an emancipated minor. I don't know if she is just curious or where her head is at. She hasn't been able to look me in the eye at all. It's OK I am the wicked step mom after all.

Tomorrow she starts drivers education. Youngest is having a friend over. I'm going to a class on pampering. I try really hard to take care of myself but, this class could not come at a better time.

Good news is for the first time in my life I've lost my appetite. I didn't think that would ever happen. Good thing I have lots of fruit and good things around. At least the little I'm eating is good for me.

The kids keep putting Sammy, our dog out on the lead and forgetting her. It's not until she starts barking and wining that I realize she is out and let her in. I feel so bad.

And I want to thank all of my readers for their prayers, energy and kind words of support. It really does help. Blessings to all of you and your families.

I am glad things are looking up and you have an appt w/the lawyer. I just hope the whackodoodle ex-wife bio mom doesn't end up in our neck of the woods in the West.

hang in there, i can't imagine how hard this must be on all of you, and you in particular because after all, these aren't your kids. (stepparents must get like triple extra special brownie points if they rise to the occasion, ive decided... its the one thing even harder than being the bioparent.) i know you will be in good hands tomorrow with rose ;)!

I'm very sorry you and your family are going through this.

A few years ago, my oldest son did something beyond stupid and into felonious. At one point, my husband and I had to ask the bonding agent to rescind bail, and we took him to the jail. I cannot tell you how horrible that was.

There is still fall-out from his terribly bad choices, but now he is married, working, taking care of himself and his family, planning to go to college.

This really doesn't make anything easier, but I just want to remind you that we (us and our kids) can survive things that seem unsurvivable. Sometimes we survive things that we don't want to survive. But we survive, and become stronger, maybe.

I'm thinking of you & yours. Peace
