I was posting several years ago, and now I'm back. You know, just when when you think you have a handle on a regular life because difficult child is gone, from your HOUSE, I mean, not from your lives.... A month ago I was all set to post here about what an amazing turnaround that difficult child had done. Then....one Monday morning about a month ago, I went to pick up difficult child for work, and she didn't come out. I was a little worried because she had just moved out about six months agon into her own apartment. You all here understand how unsettling that is in inself, right? Anyway, this day I went to get her, no one came out, the dog didn't bark when I knocked, and the storm door was sprung open. I went to the office, but it was not open for another hour. I called husband with my concerns, but he brushed it off saying "you know difficult child, she probably got a ride and didn't tell us." OK. Then, later that afternoon, difficult child called husband and said that she didn't need a ride home from work because she was going to walk. husband said that is too far to walk (3 Miles) and she said no it wasn't because I MOVED! What? She had moved over the weekend without telling anyone. Some lady from work helped her and she gave the lady her new washer and dryer, which was a present from her mom, for helping her! She moved into a pretty crappy neighborhood because her rent went up $50 per month. Once again, she didn't think of the people that drive her to and from work (she can't drive) or how she used to walk to the grocery store, etc. etc. etc. Her dad is ticked off, but this time I am letting him handle it on his own. Oh, and when he asked her why she didn't tell anyone that she was moving? She anwered that she didn't have to tell anyone anything. I hope she has snow boots.
