How can people be so stupid.....
An aquaintance I wrote about in a previous post, has screwed up so badly that I wonder if they wanted to get caught. This person stayed at our house for a period of time, on our couch. Apparently, he said he was getting his life back on track.
This person, who (whom) I`ll identify as G., was also staying with mutual friends. It seems that G was charged with assault on his ex(more on that later). Part of his release, was a surety bond. Part of the guarantee, was no contact with the ex. Any violation of this, G could go back to jail. And our friends would have to pay over $1000.
G and his ex (who I'll identify as L) L, have a child that has been taken away from them. Well, G seemed to be getting better, taking his meds, doing some work, finding a new apartment etc. All this time, he was saying he was moving on, he wasn`t going back to L, blah blah blah.
In the last couple of weeks, G had started acting weird. It turns out that G was in contact with L. G and L knew it was against the order, but they communicated anyway.
He also totally disrespected the people he was staying with, and totally disrespected my partner who has been there for him more than anyone else. Everything he was saying was what everyone wanted to hear. So it ended when the police were called.
What I realized from this is that there are only certain people you can trust. And that there are other forms of addiction, that there is no help for.
I am very lucky that I have a circle of friends that I would trust with anything. Some here where I live, and some awesome long-time friends, B. from high school and his lovely wife S. But this person is done, so done. He will never be welcome here, or be involved with my family again. Some people are not with helping and not worth saving.

Yes, here I am. Been feeling kind of crappy the last few days. You watch the news over the last few weeks, and there were stories on "When is Summer going to arrive?" and "When is it going to warm up?" etc. Well, do you know what? I like temperatures in the mid 20's with no humidity. I like not being drenched in sweat as soon as I get off the couch. Not only that, I feel completely unmotivated to do anything, and by early afternoon, it's nap time. Uugghh....Humidity sucks....
So, I've been feeling a lot better about things in general. Been having some good times hanging out with our friends S&A, and K&R. Plus we had my daughter here for two weeks. This time around, both kids were more well behaved, very little drama. Less drama....goooood. The Lovely One has started taking a few steps to get herself back on track, but it's hard on her. She buries a lot of stuff. We've had a few "discussions" (loud ones) over usually stupid things.....but I think that's a result of both of us being around each other a bit too much. Hmmmmm.....
So, I've got a lot going on in the next month or so....hopefully starting school on September 22...I have to get immunized for everything, buy my books, get back into a routine of getting up early.
But, I also get to spend a few days with Mom and Dad, since my family doctor is out of town. Just hope I feel ok after getting a bunch of shots....Later
