Thank you all for your comments last night and this morning regarind the DFH.......fill in the F for whatever you will.
Trouble with this guy is he goes off on a tangent......alcohol affects the brain and body functions. But he says "it's just as bad to be on a cell phone or eating ..." Yeah right! So there is no rationalizing with him at that moment. I will however print out or re-read the comments to him. I am all for "learning your lesson" - get caught now sucka and spend time in jail like you say you don't want to do....then HELLO! don't put yourself in the position. Ugh! Unfortunately pictures of events or stories about "other" people have no affect on alcoholics. Sometimes even destroying yourself (financially, mentally etc) or others (mangled, death) doesn't always make a difference for some. Yet each time he's been stopped for the DUI, he's nervous, scared he's going to jail.......not, "OMG, what was I thinking? I could have killed someone......".
The kicker is ........he IS and ex-cop! Go figure.
Last night Tom was so annoying to the girls, loud....aggravating. They don't understand. I do....I know the alk affects your whole demeanor. Gives you the superman (woman) syndrome; invincible; untouchable; funny (not); you think people are hard of hearing so you speak loudly. I for one was glad when he went to bed. It so frustrates me when he won't listen to reason, then I have to remind myself HE CAN'T. And no, AA won't work for him, because he won't allow it to. Been there, done that. Been twice to "drunk school" to get the license back in the 9+ years I've known him. Oh well..........enough of that!
Anyway, the girls are up and in the pool early. I've made them come out because, well DUH, it is hotter than h-e-l-l and I don't need them getting sick! They need showers and lunch and Savanna's Mom will come up here to pick her up. This kid has been an awesome guest. She is a good kid. We met her early last dance season, her Mom is a single mom and thank goodness has a decent ex where the kid is concerned.
Lemme say that there is such a GREAT difference in this kid and the other friends Tara has had over.....my house is NOT trashed! Not one bit. She asks before she does anything or eats anything which is a good trait. But when you are a guest at my house, you are welcomed to 75% of everything....just stay outta my bed/bathroom and living room and don't touch my piano or the drums. You can eat/drink anything you find except for my SUNDROP.....u toucha that and I breaka u fingas!
I will have the joy of hanging out with my nephew tonight. His Mom is in a wedding and I'm going over to his house about 4:30pm.....best be taking me a good book. Speaking of books, I'm becoming addicted to SUDOKU.......it's quite challenging, not to mention aggravating!
Guess I'll save laundry and ironing till Sunday. Tom did a real good job cleaning up the house this week while Tara was at dance camp. Let's see how long it lasts LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
