A lot happened yesterday. I knew there was a chance that he'd be released today so packed all his stuff and brought it with me to work. I also wrote him a reminder of what I will and will not do for him from this point on. He sold his car (well, I sold it for him) and is now paying his own way in life. He's going to see how fast money goes and how different it feels to spend YOUR OWN MONEY for rehab, cigs, etc. He's never had money of his own (except for the money he made illegally to buy the car but we won't go there....) so this should be a huge life lesson that he should have learned years ago.
He's going back to "United" for his fifth last chance to get the help he needs while in Opportunity Court/Recovery Court.
HE BETTER KNOW HOW FORTUNATE HE IS!
I'm excited because, even though there are benefits to being in custody, being in a solid rehab is far better for him.
I need a break. TGIF!
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
