Oh, I'm taking a deep breath of relief and hope.....John was released from home confinement today and the monitoring bracelet has been removed. We move on to another set of worries as our re-habilitated "chick" is let free to fly on his own. We've striven to imbue him with maturity and wisdom to make the right decisions. May our work and a lot of sacrifice not be in vain. This is John's LAST chance. His wonderful father called me with the news a few minutes ago and we feel like we're free for the first time in 6+ months, a VERY long 6 months. We are hoping John will stay put for a few months more while he finds a job and build a little reserve. We shall see how he accepts that plan. More waiting for us to be able to resume our lives but it may be insurance for the future.
Nothing has ever tested my strength and patience like these last months.
I'm still not ready to take the deep breath of relief and the first steps toward the recovery of our life, but I'm at the precipice.
Tomorrow, LM, Krisit and I are headed to Vermont to do a car swap for a local dealer. I have a feeling we will all go forth with lighter hearts.
I'll leave you with a few pictures of Bobalicious, the Sultan of Fur, aka my brother and sister-in-law's cat, Bob!! He really knows how to live and has his owners trained well to purchase him nothing but the finest of outdoor furniture.
Not to forget, this blogs namesake, the divine Ms G.....she caught a mouse last night and carefully delivered it to John. Our hero!
A happy fun summer weekend to you all.
