This has been a very strange week. Miss KT turned 18 on Monday, and we went to see the administrator of the trust her grandparents set up for her (that I'm not supposed to know about) for info. Turns out it's an educational trust, and all school expenses, tuition, books, lab fees, etc. are covered. We just submit receipts and get reimbursed. The administrator was a great friend of Miss KT's Grand-dad (who passed 5 years ago), and Miss KT fell apart on the guy, telling him that she needed a laptop for school, her car was ready to fall apart, Grandma is weird...and this guy totally went to bat for Miss KT, talked to Grandma, and got not only the laptop approved...but a brand new car. We got approval on Tuesday, and while we were getting ready to go car hunting, Miss KT asked if Hubby would drive her car to the dealer's, because she's afraid it won't make it. He refuses, fuss begins, I'm ready to leave, fuss continues, and I tell Hubby I think he's being a jerk. He hits the ceiling, we leave, buy the car, I go home, and get to hear all about how I'm wrong and I never consider his authority. Wednesday, same old, same old, except now I have Miss KT in my ear wanting her laptop NOW. Hubby wanders around with a wounded expression. He wants me to go here, Miss KT wants me to go there, and no one wants to compromise. Hubby is out of town Thursday, gets home Friday, and it all begins again. We need to go to Target, Miss KT wants to go, offers to drive. Hubby cops an attitude, Miss KT says, "Don't you want me to go?", and I tell them both to stay home, I'm tired of being forced to choose, I'm tired of the fussing, I'm tired of being in the middle, and I'm done. He fusses about Miss KT, she fusses about him, they blame each other for everything, and I am beyond sick of it. I'm frustrated, ticked off, sad...I feel like I'm on eternal yard duty, but lately Hubby's been acting like the little kid. I am truly dreading the weekend. If you made it this far...thanks for letting me vent.
