SS Support - Mon. Aug. 30 thru Sun. Sept. 5th
Good Morning Everyone,
Wake up, wake up and tell us how your weekend was.
Mine was hot and sticky. I will tell you all that there is NOTHING worse than putting up hay on a hot and humid day. The chaf clings to your skin like glue and it itches and scratches. It's horrible! BUT, it's done and I won't have to think about it again until next year. Whew.
Saturday we tossed hay and yesterday we moved rocks out of the paddock that were left there last fall by the contractor who built our retaining wall! Yes, right smack in the middle of the paddock in late November. What a jerk. He told us he would come move them but he would have to charge us! DH was too busy working so we left them for the winter. They are finally moved and I can finish dividing the paddock! Better late than never.
DH brough DS #2, the one with all the trouble recently to help. When DH picked him up early Sat. morning it was clear that he had been drinking the night before and DH was so upset he could barely speak. I don't know what it's going to take to get this kid turned around. DH has spent the last three months helping him, getting him to Dr's, therapy and AA meetings! We have helped him finacially to get back on top of things and now he's drinking again! I have a feeling he never really stopped. He's a user that much is for sure. I think it's time for some love with detachment or tough love. This child has literally sucked the life out of DH in the last three months. Actually, it's been a whole lot longer than that. I don't know what else we can do for him. He will have to decide what he wants to do with his life. I for one have had enough of it. I feel frustrated and want to strangle this kid!!!! I really don't know what is going to happen or what DH is going to do either. I think it's time for this boy to feel the consequences of his actions and either sink or swim. Sigh...............it's so frustrating.
Hope everyone checks in today!
