I am going to give easy child a deadline to be out today. Her attitude stinks and when she broke up with Casper, she conveniently blamed all her junk on her being with him...believing that once they were broken up, she was cured. Not so much. She waltzes in and out of here like the queen and hides out in her room when she is here. She reacts to all of us as if we have a highly contagious disease or that anything we say is stupid. She is rude & disrespectful (though she tries to have it come off as a joke) to all of us and down right mean to difficult child. She only is sweet when she wants something from one of us. As I've posted before, she's been looking for an apt, which I was estatic about, but it's not happening fast enough. Her father's family is planning a big get together for him on 7/22 for his birthday. difficult child had been planning on visiting him that weekend anyway and now easy child decided she would go down with her new boy toy for a visit the same weekend. In my oblivion, I didn't think much of it because I heard about the family get together. Apparently, no one told easy child that it was a big family thing so get this. easy child asked difficult child to go another weekend because, her words, "I don't want to be there on the same weekend as you because I don't like being around you and I only want to go with boyfriend". difficult child tried to explain that it was a family thing and easy child said some rotten things to difficult child and then in turn, difficult child said some rotten (though TRUE) things back to easy child and easy child stormed out and went to her car and cried. difficult child ran out and explained to her that their aunt and cousin were keeping it a secret from easy child about the big family event because they thought it would be funny for easy child to bring a new boyfriend to a family thing, etc. Now, it is likely that easy child will either not go at all or not bring the new boyfriend and sulk the entire time. Her aunt and cousin can be jerks at times. Anyway, easy child told difficult child that she doesn't want to be near her because she (difficult child) is depressing and b***hy. Not exactly true these days. It's actually easy child who is depressing and b***hy. Whenever she has a boyfriend she is mean & withdraws from us. I have had it and I plan on telling her she needs to be out by end of August (I would like to say end of July, but I know she has nothing lined up). I also plan on telling her that she would be well served going back to counseling, as it was not all Casper who was making her miserable and mean - she does it very well on her own! Of course, I can't put it all down, it would take too long, but there is a lot more to the story. I just am sick and tired of her cruddy attitude and self righteousness. She even said to difficult child "You're just jealous because my life is perfect" and that's what it's always about with easy child. She loves to give the picture that everything is perfect. And once things aren't perfect, she will find things wrong with her boyfriend....blah blah blah. She doesn't get that life has ups and downs and that once the honeymoon of this new romance dies down a little, that she's basically dating a dark haired Casper all over again. Makes me sick to watch it, but we all have to make our own mistakes in love and romance. And the one other thing is that I also plan on telling her that she can start giving me an additional $200 towards the college degree I'm paying for that she's not using. That really makes my blood boil every month. Ugh. I will be paying on that until 2016 - and I only did so because this was supposed to be her dream! I was grateful she had a dream, I wasn't thinking I guess. Stupid me. And her dad, my exh is paying a similar bill, and he REALLY has no extra money! So, part vent, part request for some board power, please. Thanks.
