Good news! Daughter's boyfriend and his mother have been pre-approved for a mortgage! Whoo Hoo! The three of them have started house hunting! Of course, when they move I'll miss them terribly, but she needs her own place, and I need mine back! They will be fairly close by, so we'll still see each other often, and the girls will take turns coming for overnights.
We actually had a really nice summer, with dd becoming much more respectful and helpful! Hallelujah!!!
AND, my sister and I are going on a cruise to Bermuda together the end of October! Nobody asking me for anything for a whole week -- can I handle it? Oh, ya!
