Strange World

Well, this year is extremely hectic.
Our neighbor's daughter was kicked out after her 18th birthday, just because they could. So now I have two teenagers to get up for school, clean up after, feed and push to the goal line of graduation. My Elizabeth is getting great grades and seems like she has it pretty together. Although (groan) as a newly minted 18 she got a tattoo that she's been wanting for two years. It's beautiful, artistic and forever on her back.
I think it's easier when you've raised a child from birth to explain the basic principles of turning off lights, etc. I don't want the other girl to feel bad, or unwanted so I try to be patient.
Please give me patience.
