and he'll just want a glass of milk......or Give A "Tom a Praise" and you'd be assured that there will be a slip. You know the drill......."proud of ya for containing your drinking this weekend - yay you!" and "it was nice to get out, alone together for a change" or "hold hands" or......
Wednesday I have Mom pick Miss T up from school (Tom's working) with the idea of taking her to the restaurant and him bringing her on in for dance. BUT.....he's off early, just sitting there waiting for them to show up, so I suggested they all just meet at home so he can shower and T can get her homework done.
Mr Man tells Miss T that he "had a glass of wine" at the restaurant after work (while waiting for her). So she calls me to tell me this while he's in the shower.
He calls back.........I ask him and he admits YES....and says "you told me if I were honest I wouldn't get into trouble".......
HELLO! OK yes, I said "be honest with me" instead of denying it,
You still can't drink AND drive my child around. I said "the rule is you will NOT drink and drive my child anywhere period!" Therefore Miss T did not make it to her dance class.
What makes this glass of wine (or any alk) a bigger problem is the heavy narcotics he's taking for the knee pain. Combined could be very nasty.
Ya know, my mom reminded me that Ron White says it best......
"Ya can't fix stupid"
Come to find out he was going to pour himself a Tea glass full of wine once home until Miss T stopped him (roomie watched it). He said he wasn't going to pour a drink. HUH? Why have an empty glass and reach for a bottle? He doesn't get it.........we're not stupid.
He shut himself up in the bedroom....I called him the 8th Dwarf, Pouty --- maybe I should change that to Baby. He didn't want to talk to me. And NO he wasn't "drunk", I guess he was just irritated because he "can't do anything right".
Trouble is......now Miss T is asking "did I do something wrong?" but roomie and I keep assuring her that it does not have anything to do with her or anything that she did or said.
He is upset. He has told me before that he is having a hard time accepting that he is going to have to make changes in his lifestyle...that he is "scared" of the thought of quitting the drink.
After watching his crazy NY friend this weekend, he actually said THANK YOU to me for helping him not be a drunk and strung out on drugs. Sooooooooooooo...................
