Oh dear. It sounds like she needs to implement Getting Things Done. I have recently started implementing the system and its starting to work quite well. However if she has no job or hobby of any sort, she defintely needs one.

That's just it, she doesn't have a job or hobby. During the governors campaign she did a lot so that kept her busy, now there's nothing, I can't imagine what she must be like when I'm not even home

Does she have some sort of life dream or passion?

Not particularly...she's become addicted to an "all my children" message board lately...it's very disturbing.

Oh dear, are you certain there is not any sort of goal she has maybe not discussed or mentioned? If money, time, location, and everything else were no object, what would she want to do?

Also is it possible she has depression?

She really has no goal. She'd like to go back to Europe one day but with a tuition being paid the money just isn't there. Maybe if she'd get a job...

Her: "But I have no skills!"
Me: "That's why they TRAIN you!!"

I'm hoping to get a job with the governor this summer.

Well getting a job sounds like the next logical step.

I reckon she is probably afraid. In order to get through it, you might have to guide her. It might help to simply write down on paper, "steps that Laura's Mom needs to take to get a job" and help her fill in what she needs to do.
