We have been giving J a list of things to do while we are all at work and school. He is accomplishing most of it. I am so tired, it has been really nice to come home to a clean house with laundry folded! The weather has been rainy so he has not accomplished anything from his fathers list, which does not make his dad very happy.
Nothing new on the job front…I am not sure he is ever going to get a job. Even McDonald’s ask’s if you have a felony conviction. What happens to young adults with a record are they just lost, throw away kids? I think he is going to have to go to a smaller “mom and pop” type place that does not do background checks…like a pizza place or a diner or something?
My husband and I have talked about whether J can pull it together while still living at home and neither one of is convinced he can. Throwing him out or dropping him off in a strange town feels like we are dooming him to relapse. We have drug tested him and he is clean…which is what I thought. When I said in my previous post “How do you really know for sure?”, that wasn’t because I suspected anything…I was just alluding to the fact that know one really knows. We have another test ready just to double check, which we will do soon but it feels like a waste. I still do not feel like he is using…at all.
