*hugs* That is so much to have to deal with. I can only imagine how difficult this for you to deal with as a parent.

Wow....talk about a plate being full. I doubt if a spanking or two would've changed much. I've seen great parents with not so great kids and terrible parents with great kids. Sometimes it's just beyond comprehension.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
Call me if you need to talk.
Damn girl, your word verification has like nineteen bazillion letters all scrunched together. I MIGHT get this done by midnight and fourteen hundred tries.

There is absolutely nothing that anyone can say except that kids are the most frustrating and frightening people on the planet. We love them, but hate some of the things they do. At some point, we have to start taking care of ourselves though. I hope you are doing that.

You and your family are in my prayers daily, Rain. I'm rooting for you.

I just want you to know that despite Rusty's decisions you are a fair and loving mom!
I know what will make you feel better...getting laid! If you would just open your eyes, you would know exactly who I am takin' about ;)

Congratulations, you have earned the first spot in the newest edition of A Hitchhiker's Guide To The Blogosphere.
You have shown strength of character in this post. There are, to be honest, to many posts I read to have written comments on the ones that impressed me. I don't like to litter.
I have no doubt you will work through this from what I've seen in your other posts. Take it as it comes and be strong. This is, it seems, the price you pay to raise human beings of value.
I hope this link serves you well. I would be pleased to do a permanent link exchange if you're so inclined. I think our points of view and approach would mesh well.

Margaret, I agree with you completely! I am a survivor, I just need to pull myself up by my boot straps. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. =0)
tech, Thank you for the prayers and cheers, it feels good to know that someone is cheering me along!
Candy, It's good to know you have my back, baby! Don't be silly my eyes are open. ;)

Sometimes you think it is to much of a roller coaster than something good happens.

Jesus, sweetheart! You really are being put through the mill! I am so sorry. I've been there with my own family. My brother has spent more time in jail than out. None of his incarcerations was long enough to help him kick the alcohol and drugs, unfortunately. And no one in my family (save for myself) has ever got the fact that they are dealing with a manipulative addict. They buy whatever story it is he decides to spin. There are always excuses – always reasons why it wasn’t his fault. So I do understand. All of it. I wish I could offer up some advice, my dear. All you can do is ride out the storm. I would not mortgage your house, however – no matter what your father says. If you do manage to buy your son out of this one – who knows how long it will be before he gets into another? Sorry to put it quite so baldly – but as I said – I have walked this road many times before. The police finding a weapon in his cell is very telling. I would venture to guess he doesn’t see it all as seriously as you do either. I will keep you both in my prayers, my dear. Hang in there!
