The Joey Effect

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

Hello Lovelies,

I’m calling this “The Joey Effect.”

Joey is rather a newcomer to my circle of friends.  He is the newest boyfriend of my daughter’s boyfriend’s daughter.  (That’s a mouth full.)  Joey arrived from Mississippi in June.  The Sweetest kid ever.

Everyone has encouraged him to get a job and to find work- to no avail.  Instead he wanted to rest and up his “gaming” skills.  Now, like many of us,  he has this plan of going back to school.  He wants to return to being a CNA.  But it never seemed like the right time to do so.

Now, he is looking at moving with his girlfriend to Chicago because she got this new job.  And it looks like now is the right time for him to go back to school.  But it really isn’t.  Class was cancelled.  He’ll have to drive back to Dixon twice a week when classes start up again.

If he just would have started when he arrived, it would have been over and done with already.  He would have already been a CNA!

Moral of the story.  Don’t put off until tomorrow what could be done today.  The time is never perfect.

Big Hugs,

Christine Marie
