I know that parents of adult children have been facing these situations for the past hundred (or thousand) years, but it's new to me. And my three adult children are all so different. Jeff went into the army and is doing well there. Jessica knows exactly what she wants to do and is pushing hard toward it--trying to do too much most of the time. But Ty has no clue. (And he is not he most ambitious person) I'm not saying this to be mean or cut him down--he says the same thing. We will stand behind him no matter what he chooses to do.
Right now Jasmine and Kayla are getting ready to go run a one-mile fun run. I hope the rain holds off.
We talked to the lady who promised Jessica the puppy. She says the puppy died. But we know who she gave the other female puppy to, and she could have given Jessica that one. It wouldn't have made that much difference. Her dog is in heat again, and she says Jessica can have first choice. But I'm not sure how much I believe or trust her. We will decide if/when the time comes.
