Re-adjusting

The Boy has returned from school. He has successfully completed 20 months of non-stop college education and has come out with a certificate in Blasting Techniques and a Diploma in Resource Drilling. For those of you that have followed my blog, you will know getting to this point was a HUGE undertaking – many false starts, much money spent and much anxiousness on my part. I am so very proud of his success in getting this far!'

Now the period of readjustment begins. The Boy, J and I need to learn how to function as a family unit again. Overall - so far, so good but the tiny cracks are starting to appear. The Boy seems for forget, we still own the house and expect it to be kept in an orderly manner. J and I need to remember he is technically an adult and should not be micro-managed.

The plan is for The Boy to live at home, while working in order to save money in order to pay off some of his outrageous school debt. He could make a lot more money if he moved away for work, but the costs of living in the job-rich, resource drilling areas within Canada or the US, would most likely burn up that extra money, SO for the time being, he’s home.

He already has a job and starts on Wednesday – it’s not in his field of education, but it pays well and he can live at home and bank some money. He’ll be back working for Parks and Recreation Department of the local town. He will be responsible for maintenance of hiking trails, baseball diamond grooming and assisting in the cemetery. Same job (more or less) as he had for the summers of 2011, 2012 and 2013. He’s happy, we’re happy – it’s a win, win. Now, if I can just get him to pick up his empty soda cans…
