My daughter and her boyfriend just stayed here for a couple of nights. Yesterday, they were invited to supper at a friend of mine’s place. I think they spent the night there. I think she’s gonna let them spend another night or two there, then they’re gonna be put up at a motel for a couple of nights courtesy of the local women’s shelter. Then they’re supposed to spend December at a motel at a monthly rate. I hope everything works out for them because my nerves are totally shot. I’m gonna lose it one of these days. I can just feel it.
They didn’t really cause too much trouble when they were here. They did a load or two of laundry. They were supposed to go to an appointment with a worker, and they were running late because my daughter was dilly-dallying, as usual. She has no ambition whatsoever. I can see very lazy too, but mine is from fatigue. At least I try. It seems like she doesn’t even try. It might take me a while to get things done but I get them done. If I have an appointment though, I’m always on time, usually a few minutes early.
I still won’t feel better until I know for sure that they have that motel room for December. It’s too cold for them to just be walking the streets all night, without even money for a hot coffee. We can’t really give them any money, we don’t have any. All of ours went to them and bills and groceries. All I do is worry!
My daughter got a bit of an attitude while she was here, as usual. Her boyfriend called her a grouch, but she didn’t say anything. If that had been us, she would have shouted at us “I AM NOT!” Every time we said anything to her, her response was “Whatever!” No respect whatsoever. She wasn’t too bad but if they had stayed any longer, she would have been. You never know when she’s gonna blow up at you. She’s sold things from the house before. She’s put dents in the wall. She broken her bedroom door off its hinges. It’s just best if she doesn’t stay here.
I feel so friggin’ guilty though! I just hope that they find out soon 100% that they have a place to stay for December. Then maybe I won’t have to feel quite so bad.
My daughter finally applied for welfare. She did it online while she was here. They went to Social Services yesterday and it sounds like they’re gonna give it to her. Thank God! At least I don’t have to worry about that now.
Thanks everyone for being here for me,
