the grandson

He had to get up at 3:15 A.M. to go to his part-time job (which used to be his full-time job) this morning. 

The distribution center where he now works full-time is very slow this time of year.  I should know, since I used to work there.

So he showed up unexpectedly early this afternoon... normally he doesn't get off till 10 P.M.

He ate some chips with hamburger dip and laid back in his grandpa's recliner.

Knowing him as I do, I'm sure he'll wake up sometime around midnight and disappear.  I may not see him again until Sunday evening.

He first moved in here in June, and I told him to be out by the end of July.  Although he did a few things that irked me, I decided to let him stay longer.  Now that he's so seldom here, I don't care if he stays forever.  He isn't rocking my boat at all.

I mentioned to him the other day that he's been living here since June.

"Really?  No kidding?  I've been here that long?"

Yeah.  Time flies when you're having fun, my boy, and when you're safe.  Nobody's in your pocket.  You're saving money. 

Keep up the good work.

I think it's great you are allowing him to save a little money for a while under your roof.  We all need a helping hand from time to time in life and I am sure he will show his gratitude in many ways as the years unfold.

I am sure he appreciates you letting him stay. Good for you helping him when he needed it. He sure looks comfy. Helen

So glad this is working!  Our situation has not been so easy or peaceful.  I'm happy for you.  You get to help and he gets to receive help.  I LOVE unrocked boats!

What are grandparents for?  Love and support and spoilin' (in a good way) I think!

He looks definitely content and safe and tired out!

That is great - I hope he gives you a bit of hand with things now and then. It's nice to keep someone safe!

The good thing is...he has a job and hopefully  he's helping around the house too.  It's nice of you to let him stay tho :) I bet he is saving money. It's not cheap to live out there on  your own now a days.
