Weekend Updates

Our son made 30 days on Sunday. he actually came down to tell me it was 30 days and out of his mouth he actually thanked me for believing in him. Fingers crossed. But he is stressed now, he has to be in court on Wednesday.

I worked on our daughters house all weekend. It is invigorating. Especially when so many people came over to help. It is really fun when you have a lot of people working together and you can see things change quickly. We got a couple rooms painted, boxed in a beam with oak on the ceiling of the family room, some more demo of tile floors, the cabinet doors are stained, crown moulding and trim has been put up in the kitchen, all of the drawers have been installed, the garage doors are trimmed and weatherstriped, all the doors have been hung.

Mom leaves for Cozumel on Tuesday. She is going with her sister and our oldest daughter, her husband. They will be gone for 8 days. She needs the rest. The last time we went on a vacation together and left our son he got into so much trouble he is still going to court over the things he did. So this means Dad is a bachelor for a week I guess. I am planning my menus, pizza, bar-be-que and beer, well that just should about take care of a week.

Mom babysit the grandbaby all weekend while we worked. I think she got the better end of the deal. When I hold Brooke she makes me well inside.

Yes! He's to be congratulated on his 30 days!! Good for him!! I am so glad that Mom is going on a much needed vacation and I hope she has the time of her life! Like you, I love to see the old become new again. It's so fun to see a plan come together and I bet you and your daughter's family will LOVE the house! Love holding my grandbabies as well. It fills me with an incredible love and I can't wait to do it again! Enjoy your batchelor time Dad! Hugs, Lisa

Yes your son is to be praised. You and Mom are also to be praised for all you did to help him.

30 days is a huge beginning. Good for him. I totally understand the concept of both adults not being able to leave town together. Ugh.

Congratulations on 30 days to you all!!! 30 days is a BIG accomplishment. I feel close to your story and remember how it felt while my son was getting some clean time in. He was house arrested and could only leave the house if riding to work with me or going to a meeting with me. This lasted about 6 months. We had a lot of good and some not so good times with this arrangement. He celebrated 5 years of sobriety this month. The tough times are well worth it, if they want to get clean and their life in order. While they have to want it, I believe supportive parents help so much. All of you keep up the good work!!
