tongue out Started out a real pain in the back kind of day..K was very real reason, nothing would make her happy..i would have been just as happy to sit in a corner with her and cry it out..but that is a luxury..

The day must go on, and had several really good phone calls-

1) a friend of my daughter called and offered to be a “mother’s helper” for me-she had been over the prior week when my daughter came home from college and saw the challenges ahead..( I think my dear daughter talked to her about the “situation“-Thank God for unselfish people!!)

2) My insurance called me back-Since I had the 2 surgeries this year etc-all my physical therapy will be at NO COST to me!! Whoo Hoo (and now with the helper- only 10.00 to have the girls watched for an hour so I can go)

3) also- they approved my diabetic medicine!! This has been the only stuff that has consistently kept my blood sugar under control that didn’t keep my stomach upset!!

4) My buddy Tim called - on his way over-the outlet I need wired he can do it for materials only-$15.00 at the most!! He has been such a great friend..our sons grew up together and we both have challenges with our sons-so it’s a friendship that has big shoulders attached to it!

And then  My son ( Gen RX)- called- and I hate to say, I got kind of hateful with him..I had been ignoring his phone calls and last week I finally answered.  Started in again about no job, no food, no money and hey can you lend me$$..I lit into him and told him I would quit answering his calls if all he wanted was to tell me about his rough life. Told him once again- take me to court and get visitation and if you think you can do it-get the guardianship terminated..I would not let them (him and wife rx) mess with the girls emotions anymore. I tried to help and all they did was knock me down.. More promises it wont happen again-Told him for 3 years I supported them-when they had $$ they didnt help-and then when I am down-they steal from me again- I finally had my last moment of being lied to, stolen from etc...  One day he may get it...

I have been reading a book that has given me some backbone with all of this, author Allison Bottke- Setting Boundaries with your adult Children ...about how to quit enabling....some tough parts in this book...but it is tougher to enforce it than to read

Over all the day went well...I didn’t have a melt down..I am learning that I can do this and recover from surgery...The only real bother- I got fired the day my  surgeon called to set up my second surgery...I had been off work since February, 1st surgery in March and the second August 4th..can’t blame em to start over looking for work after being with that company for 10 years...this will be the next challenge...
heartthe loves in my life! pictures attached!!

Love it
