These last couple of weeks have been full of sun, beachtime and hanging out with friends and neighbors. Add to this TONS of stress. My way of handling the stress hasn't been with eating for once but with hiding out at the beach, reading some books and venting to my girlfriends. I found out yesterday that my daughter and her husband were being evicted (and a judgement brought against them in court). They have until the 12th to get their stuff out. They had their electricity turned off 2 weeks ago and have been temporarily staying with his mother in an one bedroom apartment. Now they are basically homeless with no options since neither are working. So my husband, myself and my son sat down to try to come up with a viable solution to try to help but also to lay down some boundaries to prevent ourselves from being sucked in (since neither of the adults are making appropriate choices or decisions). I just bought an used travel trailer which I was going to put on our property we have in the mountains. Now it will be sitting on my son's property with my daughter, her husband, Ali, and 2 boston terriers all living in it. We have given them a couple months in the trailer which should be enough time to find work and figure out a living situation. I will be close enough (10 minute drive) to help with Ali and my son will keep an eye on the situation (and won't hesitate to call his sister out for being a derelict).
I will have Ali for this week while they go and pack up, and deal with storage. Gives me plenty of time to take more pictures, fatten her up and of course love on her. These pics were from 2 weeks ago.
