i got up motivated to clean Dominyk and Wilson's room. I figured it would take 30-45 minutes. Try 2 hours and 40 minutes. Sigh. Five huge bags of garbage. And this is a room that has been cleaned weekly by their definition.
Then we had a family meeting. We are facing several major transitions in the next several months, so we needed to plan for that. Tony will be home soon, and Salinda soon after that it appears, though she may change her mind We have to figure out as a family what kind of chance to provide for John.
John has been given a Stay of Adjudication. He has not had a violent episode in over 2 years. He has been very stable. We contemplated renting an apartment for him, but just simply cannot afford to do so at this time. So we are talking about him moving in with limited rules (rules and Conduct Disorder don't go well) until he can afford an apartment. He is very motivated at this time to do what he is supposed to do. Mike was given 3 different "last chances" and he messed them up, but that doesn't mean that John shouldn't be given one. He was home for Thanksgiving, Christmas, several weekends and Easter and did fine.
I will leave that with you ... for now. Because we're going out to lunch. So I'll let you know the rest of the story then.
