Safe and sound  
My daughter is now staying with us. Her ex completely cut off any cash to her and she had to drive up here. Now he's taking the car and selling it since she can't make the payments herself and he just bought an expensive truck. We're fixing up Jezebel, our old Toyota, for her. We figured all along that this would happen so we've been working on it already.

If we had money we'd get her a lawyer too.

On the bright side, she's safe and we had a great day. She's going to look for some housecleaning jobs here and maybe take over a paper route.

Still having headaches but not as severe, so that's something.

My coworkers gave me a great send off, pizza and cupcakes and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. My boss bought me a foot spa, complete with jets, heated water and massagers. I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I'm really looking forward to it.

It was hard to leave such wonderful people behind, and they were all so understanding about it. Yet I know I did the right thing for my health. I feel sure I will be seeing them again.

I'm glad your daughter is safe and sound. Scary how quickly people can turn on us, isn't it? And somehow, it is worse when it is our child it happens to, no matter how old they are.

Blessings to her finding work and getting on her feet again. :)

Thank you! You're right, it's worse when it happens to our children. Makes me far angrier than if it happened to me.

I am so glad that your daughter has you to turn to when her life went south. And you must be so relieved to see that's she's ok.

Yes, it is nice to have her safe and sound here at home--but I doubt she'll stay up here. She is really determined to build a life in L.A. even if she has to go back and sleep in the car we are going to give her.

Parental relief
I know it's got to be a comfort to know she is safe. I can relate about paying a lawyer; I cannot afford the expenditure of much for one to help my son out, either.

I am glad your leaving at work was a nice one, not one of those testy tense kinds of things. Good luck to both of you!

Re: Parental relief
Yes, it's a nice break from worrying about her.

I'm going to at least help fill out divorce papers for her since I did most of my own and know how it goes.

We're at least going to fix up a car for her since he's taking the Honda.
