Reality Check


Well, today turned out to be the pre-sentencing hearing. My sister pleaded guilty, and between the judge, the prosecuter and her attorney I guess they worked out that she could get from o-60 days in jail (it’s not 30 days anymore).

Between now and then she will see her probation officer. She has to put her best foot forward with him, because he will influence the sentencing.

That’s about all I have to say, except she’s feeling pretty sorry for herself. The attorney strongly suggested she attend as many AA meetings as she could between now and July 3rd, which is when she’ll be sentenced, and all she could do was say she didn’t have transportation.

I had already told her AA people would love to pick her up and take her to meetings. Her attorney told her she’d have to start dealing with that because that wasn’t likely to change.

I don’t know what else to say. I’m tired and slightly … I don’t know.

Peace out.

  1. I’m so glad that you told her *AA* people would be willing to pick her up instead of telling her you would take her!!! *applause* It sounds like you are doing some very healthy and appropriate detaching–in love of course. Yay you!


    • Thanks Deb. It’s not easy. Harder still is holding myself back from saying what I really want to say. You know? Keeping my own boundaries. But it’s not up to me to teach her….it’s up to God. And He’s doing just fine all on His own. 🙂


Lay it on me!
