I just don't know, and the fact is that it isn't in my hands.

The kids plan to go to Chicago this weekend (ferried by his father) to rent an apartment. Raederle has done her best, researching on the internet to find a good place at a reasonable price. But prices in Chicago are double what they are here. I figure that basic living expenses will run $13,000 per year. I don't know where he thinks that's coming from.

He wants to take architecture (sp?) to upgrade his father's construction business. I think he's building castles in the air. I can't tell him that. I don't think he'll make it. I have told him that. (Maybe it'll make him stubborn enough to do it.)

They have no concept of making deposits for electricity and gas and phone. They have no idea how much food costs. Or even how they're going to obtain it.

Fool's errand. Zero possibility of success. Nothing I can do about it.

I expect failure; then they'll learn. I'm just afraid it will break them.
