Sorry . . . :school: should have been 'scool' and it would look like this
I didn't make Frankie happy, I shared with him and he accepted the information in a way that made him happy. And you are right . . . sharing here DOES make me happy.
I didn't mean to measure out your assistance to you parents . . . but everyone has boundaries (whether we realize it or not) and some of us wear a sign that says "doormat". You don't likely qualify for the sign, but I wore it for a long time and it really doesn't gain you anything but people wiping their feet on you.
I admire you for helping your folks. I think we should all do more of it.
Glad your bf is so nice and glad he is getting free of alcohol. I do hope you'll sample the green stuff and tell me about it.
