My son and his girlfriend announced suddenly that they were going to the mall this afternoon. I get a phone call at 8:30 they want a ride home. I've done this probably a dozen times. This time I said hold on. I'm in the middle of cooking dinner. I have typing work I have to do. I refused to take your sister to the mall today because I was tired, was low on gas and had too much to do, so it really would not be fair for me to drive out there now to pick you up. They should have told me when they left that they might need a ride instead of expecting me to drop everything when they call, like I usually do. And then in the past I end up taking not only them, but their friends home as well. Tonight my husband took the phone and said, "You found your way there; find your way back." My son hung up on him. I'm thinking Un-codependently -- It's not my problem. But my body is fighting the urge to get in the car and see if they are still there waiting for me. Somebody please tell me I'm doing the right thing.

Life is great when it works out. The kids are home from the mall. Don't know how. Don't care. No attitude but humility in the air.

loving life at this moment, and SO glad I held my ground tonight.
