Keven asked me if I could pick him and his gf up for his day pass, so I did and they hung out over here most of the day then went out to lunch. While he was gone, Anthony called with good news - a bed finally opened for him at the Detox located in the adjacent rehab that Kev is in. To make a long story short, I ended up doing his laundry for him and bringing it up there. He's been homeless for a month, so I felt doing his laundry was a nice gesture. So I sat there while they did his paperwork, I'm his emergency contact, he introduced me as his mom. I hope he does it this time but I've learned better than to get my hopes too high where he's concerned.
He has such a sweet baby face. I could see the desperation in his eyes. He said he really wants this. I hope so.
So then I drove back here, stopped for gas and (don't laugh!) drove off with the nozzle still in my gas tank! I ripped it off the pump. I stopped my car and set it aside and looked around (knowing I'd have to pay for it) no one saw me. I decided to be honest anyhow. $194.00!
Then I came home to let the dogs out before I went to my brother's for a BBQ and ended up letting one of the cats house. So now I am sitting here hoping he comes back in. No BBQ for me. Can't leave with Black Jack on the loose.
I just want to go to sleep. Keven seemed good, and now maybe Ant will get some help (they kept calling him Tony and I was wondering who the heck Tony was!). They probably won't see each other much, and I'm not too worried about that.
I just needed to vent.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
