    And I can finally exhale....

    In short - difficult child posted some really nasty things on FB about her Dad...and then she and her Dad had an all-out war via FB, text, and PM. Basically, husband played the "my house - my rules" card and difficult child played the "I'm 18 so you're not the boss of me" card. husband told her if she didn't comply with his rules he was throwing her out - difficult child told him he can't throw her out because she is leaving.

    difficult child packed a few things and moved into her friend L's house. L lives with her Dad, her Aunt, Uncle, three small cousins and a step-sister in a small trailer. So difficult child is now sharing a bedroom with two other girls - and sharing a bathroom with thw whole family. Due to varying work one is available to drive difficult child she has to walk several miles to get where she is going.

    And the best part? L's Dad is charging difficult child $50 per week.

    difficult child, of course, feels this is far superior to having a room to herself, sharing a bathroom with her brother, and getting rides wherever she wants.

    Oh well. Works for me!

    When difficult child 2 ran away from our comfy home and family, he moved into a flophouse full of teens. He slept in the kitchen, in a chair. He still says he doesn't regret any of it. I'll never understand his reasoning. Enjoy the quiet times!

    I am a reformed difficult child - even *I* wonder what the heck I was thinking looking back. Glad you get to exhale.

    I'm glad that you can exhale. I, too, will never understand the difficult child line of thinking.

    Enjoy your peace and quiet.

    I love it. Maybe, just maybe, your difficult child will realize how good she had it. Then again . . . she is a difficult child.

    Oh yes - I can't see her getting along with L's family for any length of time...

    BUT, difficult child took her bed with her...ALL of her clothing...and everything else is packed into boxes. She said she will be back for the rest of her stuff before the end of the summer.

    So I guess we will see.

    In difficult child speak.... leaving the boxes to pick up later....... is the same as saying "Gee mom, you are going to realize how much you miss me. Don't worry. I will be moving back in. That is why I left my stuff."
