I have not been on here for a few days as things have been hectic around here again. Plus I have the old arthritus acting up and a head cold but I am still hanging in there.
Then there is the minor problem of the wayward daughter. She was supposed to come home today but we got a call from a woman at 4 Sunday morning, informing us that my daughter was drunk, on drugs and laying on her couch and she wanted her out. It was from a town about thirty miles away and my husband had to get to work and I just could not go after her. Nor would I.
I don't mean to sound cold but she is almost thirty and refuses to give up on the drugs and alcohol.She goes for two or three months without then goes off the wagon. Every time she goes off, we step in and pick up the pieces, hoping that she will finally get off the drugs and alcohol and stay off. She is a mean drunk. She causes fights and all sorts of disruptions when she is drinking and I will not have that any more.
I hope she is here for the holidays. We told her she is welcome to come but she cannot live here any more. It is a shame because she is such a wonderful person and she was doing so well with the helpshe was getting from d and a.
But they have to want to quit drugs and alcohol and until she wants to quit, there is little we can do to help her.
But I am going to have a busy day tomorrow getting things ready for thanksgiving. We will be having the tradtional things but they will be done differently. My sil will be frying the turkey. I will do the rest.
I will try and get to some blogs tomorrow.
