Tough couple of days on the home front. Nineteen year old decided to leave after spending eight days with us trying to figure out what to do with her life. Still wasn't committed to leaving her bad news beau. Sad...can't help her any more than we can help her. Does that make sense?
On the good news front....
Yeah, it's one of those days - trying to find something good to say. Sometimes we just need to borrow a little positive vibe from the day before, you know? In my case, we have to go back three days.
But it's not all bad. 22-yr-old is having a great senior year in college. 12 and 16 seem happy enough. 17 is a high school senior and expecting to hear from NESCOM any day now - good news, we hope.
HOPE. Yeah, that's what it's all about.
When 4 out of 5 of your kids are happy, healthy, working, going to school, committed to the right things, making good decisions.... Well, isn't that about the national average? I think so. It has nothing to do with the divorce they all went through... Seems to me the most adjusted families are at about an 80% success rate.
