Here we go again

May weight loss challenge post below.
I don't know how I get in these situations....
My nephew R (different one from post a few days ago) graduated from college a few weeks ago. Now R is a great kid and hoping to start medical school this fall. To say this boy is smart is crazy...this boy is a genius. He as not only Valedictorian he got so many scholarships they pay him to go to school. He only lives a mile from me but we don't see them often, both families too busy and just not super close but when we do see each other we enjoy his company. I guess R had a girlfriend at college who lived way off somewhere (Oklahoma I think) and had to go back when school was out. She drove back here a week ago to spend some time with R and his mom said she could stay there, that is until she got there. I guess after a few days R's mom threw her out....when I got up this morning she was asleep on my couch. My DS says she just needs a place to sleep, has no money and can't afford to drive home and has to get a job. I love teenagers...I really do, but I am not very comfortable with this girl I met twice moving in my house. She seems nice, but very immature. How do I have her here when I have no idea who she is. I am
not rich, I don't have a lot of expensive "stuff" and she may be the most honest person in the world, but what if she isn't? When I fell asleep last night there were 6 teenagers here and I assumed she and R would leave and go back to his house but when I got up R had gone home and she was asleep in the living room with 3 teenage boys. I woke my son up then and he was the one to tell me of her plight. Why Me!
One a much happier note I just looked up my DD's year end grades and I am one proud momma

Congrats to DD on those most awesome grades! Tell me, how does one get OVER 100% in a class. WOW! And as I always say, all that, and she's gorgeous, too! :) Regarding your newest "houseguest"--you must do what your gut tells you. It's YOUR house and if this girl's boyfriend's parents don't want her in THEIR house, why should you. That's just my opinion. Can't wait to hear how it turns out!

I'd go fill up her car with gas, stick her in the car and send her on her way. But that's just me being jaded after my own experience. (Very long story.)

Ah, yup, yup, yup...sounds like it's time to start kickin' ass and takin' down names. And puttin' em all on notice that you're "this close" to taking Monkling's advice! Or you can just vent to me anytime you'd like! At least DD gives us a little hope :)!

What ever happened with that whole situation? Do you still have an extra kid or did you send her on her way?

Hmmm... I replied to your reply on my blog but then realized I probably should have gone here instead. All this blog bouncing just makes me so dizzy.
