in another state. I was wondering what this means for his probation? Not my business…that’s my story and I am sticking to it. J has done well with probation and only goes about every six weeks or so. I am leaving it to him to take care of it all.
J has officially called the ex-girlfriend/friend his new girlfriend. I am happy for him. She lives near the town where they both went to college. She seems so mature and stable…maybe it is because she is two and a half years older. I think this could be a really good thing. I know she is an adult who casually drinks but I also know she is not someone who has to drink to have a good time, like so many other kids these days. She is definitely not a girl who uses drugs…I am really grateful to be able to say that with confidence. J’s behavior and manner definitely rises a couple notches when he is in a relationship. He becomes the man he wants so desperately to be.
HOWEVER…Spending long weekends in the next state over has done nothing to aid him in his job search! He has had odd jobs here and there for one of his best friends mom. It’s a win win situation…she is a single mom who gets quality cheap labor and he gets paid something! I miss him when he is away, no help around the house makes for a cranky mommy.
