My Mom brought up the finance situation and she made the good decision to renew her contract. I also spoke to my Dad and he was aware of the risk. He told me, I have been married to her for over 40 years and if I had listened to her, we would be living in a cardboard box. He said he knows he has to try to protect their money. He also said he would support her if she ever decided to get some professional help. This was a revelation to me as he has his eyes open to the addiction.
Graduation was a wonderful time. We had two parties and both were full of family, food, and boating.
