There is not a normal thing about my life right now! And I am ready to get control of it,
I am a grown-up....right?
Let me go back just a little bit. I have a grandson who has depression issues. The last 3 weeks, I think the staying at home just became too much. That and being 16 on the Autism Spectrum. He had a spiral and was contemplating suicide. So he went to a facility for a week. It has been so heart wrenching. He got a good blast of therapy in there, but then home and nothing. Again, life became too much and Sunday he walked away from the house about midnight. I received a call from my daughter, his Aunt, about 5 a.m. that he was missing. And the hunt began, for me. His parents and friends were up all night searching frantically. A police report was called in, my friend a county deputy called in late to join the search and all to no avail About 8 we received a call that a county sheriff had found him. He had walked over 15 miles total and rode out a thunderstorm under an awning of a nearby town's school. Oh, Dreamers, hold your babies tight. Love them while you can. It was more than I could imagine.
I am "distance learning" my 2 young grandchildren! We keep them every day and they are such good kids. But at 63, I am ready to retire from "motherhood"! So we have their mom's Chromebook and my new computer. I have been careful to not let kids use it. You know they go to sights that are not secure and next thing you know some worm is trolling around inside it! But it is not going as bad as I had imagined! This too will pass.
