Home Sweet Home


Well I must say.... living with another grown man (my 19 yr old son) in my home again sure makes for interesting times. I had gotten used to not shutting the door while in the bathroom/showering/changing. I now have to really remember to check things out before I sit down to use the guest bath, as normally I am the only one to use it. Food and drink disappears before my eyes. Strange people ringing the door bell, calling my cell phone because hes not answering his. Sadly ya'll he didn't learn a thing while out on his own, he may be 19 but hes still thinking like a 15 yr old. He came home with nothing but his bed and a bag of clothes, everything else was lost/stolen or pawned.

Well he did come home also about 1500 in debt and a 10 hour a week fast food job. (sigh) The saddest part is this...... there is no drug or alcohol issues its just pure laziness and thinking the world owes him. Now dont get me wrong ya'll I love my first born and he has a heart of gold and the soul of an angel.

We just cant seem to learn him any common sense or street sense. He wants to go into the military which to be honest I think would be the best thing for him!!!! He needs to lose some inches to make the requirements, and just wont take it seriously.

Alexis loves having him home!! His step dad and I well the jury's still out (laughing).

"The saddest part is this...... there is no drug or alcohol issues its just pure laziness and thinking the world owes him" ....

that is very good news actually - he can pay off $1500 quickly if he is living at home, and not having drug/alcohol issues is such a great thing.

Glad Alexis is enjoying having her brother home! They both look pretty tickled about each other. :)
