a week has gone by

without any posting. I just haven't felt like it. I did finish an ornament. LHN Winter Sampler from the JCS 2009 Ornament issue.

Then I finished a RR square for Gis

Thanksgiving was great and Dylan came home.
The weekend was for movies and stitching. I watched a lot of movies including all 6 Star Wars movies.
Then we dropped Dylan off an hour away from us. He had ridden with a school friend. He got back to college. yesterday his 2 friends(roommates) dropped out of school and then moved out of the apartment today and had to pay a big fee for canceling the rent. Now Dylan is stuck and has to be out of the apartment like maybe this weekend. He has no job and does not want to lose the opportunity of this school. I am sitting here 6 hours away in tears because these 2 boys left him high and dry. He can't afford rent on his own and I don't have the money to get to him til next weekend. I am so angry that the boys just left him hanging. They moved out today, while Dylan was in school. I have no idea if they took any of his stuff or what happened to his cat, which is an indoor cat, while moving things out. Scott and I are taking the cat home with us, next weekend. But what do I do if he has to be out this weekend? I am so scared for him. They also expect him to pay December's rent but no way should we pay when he can't stay and they did this. What is wrong with people. He went to high school with these boys. So please keep us in your prayers and that Dylan can move in with some kids this week. This has all happened since yesterday morning. I am numb!

Oh Shelleen...that is horrible. I sure hope he finds another place to live!

Oh no! I hope that Dylan gets things figured out. It's always hard in that first year of school...so many kits just drop out because college is so much different than high school.

Oh Shelleen my heart goes out to you. I have a Dylan in college too and I can just imagine how this feels. I will send happy thoughts and prayers your way. I do want to say though, your ornament looks great.

That is crazy. I really hope that you can figure something out. Sending prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear Shelleen. I hope things will work out quickly for Dylan and he'll be able to find some other room mates quickly so as to not disrupt his life any further.

I am so sorry to hear about what has happened to Dylan. As a Mum who has a DD at university sharing a house with four others I can imagine how it must feel. That is one of my biggest fears that she will be left high and dry if they move out or drop out of uni.

Your finishes are beautiful.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I hope the housing worries resolve very soon so your son can focus on exams. I'm not surprised at the other kids - kids that age often to only think of themselves and not consider others at all.

Shelleen, what's the update on Dylan & that situation? I just heard about it Saturday, I'm way behind on reading blogs. PBS for all of you!
Hugs,
Amy

I'm so sorry this happened. Isn't there a housing office on the campus that he can ask for assistance? There may be others who have been left in this situation. Hope all has worked out well.
