Challenging Days Are Ahead ...

I don't know if I will ever get used to being the mother of adults. MARRIED ADULT with 3 children (one being almost 2 weeks old). MARRIED ADULT with 2 children and marital problems.

Last night, I got a phone call from son #2 telling me that "This is it. It's over this time. I can't take it anymore."

Shortly after 10 PM, in he walks with a laundry basket full of clothes, an overnight bag, a pillow and a blanket, and his alarm clock. My immediate thoughts, OH MY GOD ! He's my son and he's welcome in my home any time, but my life has potentially just taken on a drastic change.

I have lived alone for quite a few years .... this is going to take some getting used to !

Oh, and he says to me - "Mom, can I use the dryer? I have a job interview at 8 in the morning and my suit is wrinkled. I could have brought it to the cleaners but they wanted 20 bucks for one day service - and it's just a cheap suit! The shirt I just bought is wrinkled too." (Thank goodness for wash and wear polyester / wool blend suits - he's a mechanic, who doesn't usually wear anything but jeans and a t-shirt!) So, the dryer was used and the suit and shirt looked just fine. I actually had a proud Mommy moment - he had just left his home in a hurry and had a job interview the next morning, but he wanted to make sure that he looked presentable when he got there and made sure he brought the proper attire with him. By the way, he did look rather sharp this morning when he left - black suit, blue shirt, blue and black tie, dress shoes and dress socks even ! and HE COMBED HIS HAIR ! (He's been known to wear white athletic socks with a suit before).

Anyway, this post is rushed and not thought out real well - he is over in the other room and I don't want him to know that he is the subject (he doesn't even know I have a blog) - plus Grey's Anatomy is just about to come on .......

My mind is foggy, my emotions are all over the place and like I said, Challenging Days are Ahead...

Stay tuned - I hope to do better next time.

I was divorced and the first person I called was my mom. Then I moved in with my dad. Both were there for me when I needed it most. You are a great mom to let him move in!

But I do hope, with two kids, he works it out.

xoxoxo to all!
