Isn't it funny how one day you can be in the best mood and nothing is bad and everything looks positive and good?
And then in a single day, it all turns on you.
Monday we went to help the big one with his financial aid for college.
The financial aid form that was completed in April had an issue and was incomplete and school had already started that very day and dorms were full and money had already been doled out and my son had already enrolled in some classes and been accepted into the music program including jazz and marching band and he had commitments to the director and here we were, an hour from home, trying to decide if he should commute or find a place that was available, and we were being told that he couldn't enroll for the rest of his classes without payment and the forms wouldn't be processed for 3-5 days.
As I have mentioned, we are not going to pay for his college.
This did not sit well with him as he waited for us to again bail him out of the hole he dug by putting off things.
He did not want to discuss his immediate options.
Monday was a bad day and we ended up leaving angry and exasperated with him. Again.
I went to bed early and then yesterday things started coming together and today, things have improved.
The weather has been in the high 70's and low 80's and sunny and the windows are open and I am going to nap in my hammock.
