We met with my daughter, against the attorneys advice to let her know we had a court date for full custody. We didn't feel it was right not to tell her and let her find out after the fact. After all I love my daughter and don't wish to see her hurt. We are raising my grandaughter due to her drug history,in and out of prison, etc. She is not capable of taking care of herself, much less a child. We never wanted to be put into this position,but because we love the child we didn't want her in foster care. We've had her for a year now, and she is a bright light in our lives. My daughter took the news rather well, but now a week later,I find out she thinks we lied to her and could of asked or tempoary custody to be extended or joint custody. First of all she can't have joint custody because she moves every week to a differant friends house or motel and can't be trusted to take care of the child and I'm not about to continue to pay attorney fees for temporary custody. She also is angry that she'll have to pay child support. When other people have raised her child for the last four years and she hasn't paid one dime to help. She is bad mouthing my husband and I to everyone around, and I'm the evil one for taking her child away. Never one thank you to any of us who stepped up to bat for this child. I am so angry! But I am also hurt that my own child can blame us and not take responsibility for her own actions that brought us to this point!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
