thank you all for the advise and kind words too. I try really hard to make sure she's taken care of and brought up with good values. Other than not bein home as much as I wanted to there for a while when I was working so late, i've done ok filling the "dad" role. But I wish she had a mother

Sounds like you are doing an EXCELLENT job!
My BIL is raising his son alone, not quite the same but I see how hard it is to play mom and dad and get things done right. There are quite a few EXCELLENT moms on here and we'll help you out any time you need it!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Its amazing what you can do with tuning a car. I got a tuning software program for my computer, so I can plug my laptop into the port below the dash on the driver side. I got it to tune my firebird, and ended up tuning several hot rods around here
That is interesting to know. I still say no gov for me, though! Besides, 75 is the speed limit (here, anyway), someone might run ya over! :)

I can just invision me doing this...peck peck on the old laptop, and then.... everything including the seats would start smoking or something!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

thank you. I can tell just from this thread that theres some great parents here. Im 24, so most people in my age group don't have kids, and the ones that do, havent reached this stage. So its easy for everyone I talk to to just point out what they disagree with, but they can't give a constructive answer when I ask how they would do it.

I shattered my toot and ankle at work a few years ago. I had 5 surgeries, but the doc couldnt fix it. I had my leg amputated below the knee a little over two weeks ago. Over the last few years, so many people have told me I have no business raising a child. As hard as that is to hear, it has been motivation for me to do what I need to do. I know that has put a lot more on her that someone her age should have, so that makes a lot of the judgement hard to hear. At the same time, I have to realize that some of taht is people looking out for her too, so I appreciate that part of it

Respects to you for taking such good care of your sis - she's lucky to have a brother like you. Our oldest son (14) has incredible values similar to what yours appear to be - he helps us take care of his younger siblings, who are both autistic. A very caring and remarkable person - and a good man at a young age.

You seem to have thought it through, so I'd say trust your judgment and do what you think is best for her.
