Here We Are In The Fall Of 2015

In Texas the fall of the year is here, leaves falling all over the yard yet the trees are still somewhat green and no rain now for over 50 days this year... A big record since 1983!!! However the weather man and women says we will get rain coming our way next week for sure but only at 20% each day...

 

Some is better than none I guess since the ground has started to have big cracks in the yard and around the house foundation... I'm not able to water or turn on the sprinklers like I used to do and it's just me for outside work around the yard and house...

 

I want to ask my helper that takes care of me each day for an hour but I don't want him to get fired from the agency he works for if they see him outside the house helping me put the sprinklers out in the yard.... My yard man has hired three men to help him with yard work, cutting and edging but that's all he will do and bag up the grass and leaves....

 

I have to be outside when they are here or they will cut the grass to low or edge in the wrong places like up on the side of the house messing up the painted edges and boards on the house too.... Same way with the back wood fence they have just about cut it off where the dog can get under the fence..... He hired these guys to keep them off the streets....

 

I spend a lot of my day riding around my side of town trying to find a place, house or apartment my daughter can afford when she is released from prison in January 2016.... The social security should start her SSI check back when she get out and I hope she can make payments for a place to live and not get back into drug use.... She claims now to be trusting so much in God but I know that can change in a heart beat... They got nice apartment across the street from a baptist church she can attend since she will not have a car to drive....

 

I shall see but I know she can't stay in my house, that has been proven in the past, since she got light fingers and Will pick up things that she feels can be pawned..... She is my child at 51 years old so she needs her own place that way when her son and his family returns from Japan they can stay with his mom....

 

She is just so hard headed and will not listen or do what is right but maybe by then she will have changed....

oh Fred-- for all of us,it is always something isn't it ?But of course even in regular everyday life that is true. Time is zipping along. Hold your ground ( i know you will)- about her staying with you. YOU don't need to become a caretaker on top of eery thing else.

Thanks Nancy, yea, I will hold my grounds while trying to find her an apartment she can afford on SSI pay or a small one bedroom house somewhere near me if possible.... Real estate here in this military town is always available with soldiers coming and going all the times so I pray I find her a place by December or January when she gets out....

 

Another thing here is mobile homes are available too in many areas, none near me now but in the next little town.....

Fred, all we can do is continue to pray for our children, support them as much as we can afford and know what our limitations are.  God bless you Fred in all that you do.
