Hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving…

I did. Dinner was delicious. I love Thanksgiving it’s all about the food and loved ones but without the anxiety that comes when you need to find that perfect gift. We argued, we laughed and we stuffed ourselves…ya know the usual. Then J called and things turned icy. I told J that I have asked Grandpa not to bail him out…he was incredulous and it got ugly. I listened as he pushed every button and broke my heart into a million pieces. I wanted to hang up but I couldn’t do that to him…it was Thanksgiving and he deserves family on that day even if it’s ugly. When there were just two minutes left on the 20 minute call my husband FINALLY agreed to speak with him for the first time since the arrest. He took the phone into the other room so I don’t know what he said and I didn’t ask. If he wants to share he will. Feeling kind of somber now…hoping Christmas ends on a higher note.

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free when my oldest son went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    My daughter called today for the first time in over a month- we thought she was in sober living – she told us today she had left and is living with a friend – I have really grown to hate the holidays- I need to seek the light! I am sorry for your ugly call.

    😦 Happy Thanksgiving!!! So sorry the call had to interrupt the festivities My son coming in late with the girlfriend almost sent me into the mood but I chose to focus on other things like my other kids and my grandson and the good food and talk about how we are decorating for Christmas and what we are doing for New Years. Hang in there. You are doing great! I know it’s hard.

    I am glad you had such a nice day with your family.
    On the other hand, a call on a major holiday from our child in jail can only be challenging I would think. It sounds like you handled it the best way anyone could under the circumstances.

    I waited for that call yesterday and it didn’t come. Maybe he could not get to the phone , I don’t know. I know he is safe and fed but I really wanted to hear his voice. I’m glad you were able to talk with him.

    How far you have come Mady! I know the trip still completely sucks and you would much rather do anything else but you have come so very far. The Mady of two years ago would have handled this so much differently. And getting grandpa to not bail him out – at least for now – is huge. I know I’m just another faceless goof on the Internet but I’m very proud of you – or something like that. You are doing great! Keep it up and keep holding firm. J is learning very clearly that his game has been changed – and you are the game changer! Awesome!
