Wow, it's been quite a while since I posted a blog!
So busy, busy and I had decided I could make better use of my time supporting my team mates and friends by reading their blogs.

I am moving in with my daughter, now a single mom trying to work and raise her son. Realistically, I know it will cause more stress for me (it already has) and much less for her but I'm doing it anyway. I will also have less room than now, which wasn't much to begin with. I hope to be able to save more money too but that will depend on how easy it will be to get her on a budget.
I will be moving most everything this weekend and finish up with stuff and cleaning before the middle of the month.
I watch the baby almost every night after work until she gets out of her second shift job.

I also have to fix and register and inspect my car this month. Joy, joy but am pulling in extra hours on my per-diem jobs to get it all together.
Not great in nutrition, I have way too many days that are just way over and above the limit but very nice in fitness. It translates into no weight loss which isn't good but I am still trucking along!

yoga after work every Tues!

    What a lil doll he is.
    Living with an adult child can be challenging. Although my son lives in his own place across the pasture from me I find I have to be very careful about NOT "mothering " him too much by word or deed. We share 10 acres and I am glad he is close by with DH like he is, I need help doing stuff round here more often than I used to.
    It will indeed take patience and co-operation from both of you , it can be done. I am sure you like me have seen many other families with multiple generations in one house. I hope you have an area, your room ?? where you can go to without any disturbance. YOU still need your zone!! Take care of you ..while tending so lovingly to others!!!
    you are...

    Oh my... I can see why you have to be careful not to squeeze that sweet-pea too hard. What a heart breaker he's going to be. You and your DD just need to set boundaries and plan to stick to them. Best of luck to you both... emoticon emoticon

    Understand it all, been there, am there for some of those things. You'll get through. Keep plugging and thank you for helping your daughter out, she may not think to thank you now, but she will in a few years. I think it is great you are doing that. I hope she can get a budget down quickly.
