Last night was so agitating, I was going to post but couldn't even type. I'm much better now. easy child decided to drive to the all-guy's school near her school and sleep in a friend's dorm. (He's a frosh and very green and she has been very nice to him.) husband talked to her and said there were lots of people there--party time! We had already told her not to stay up all night to catch her 6:30 a.m. flight in Richmond--she was afraid she'd oversleep because she's used to going to bed around 1 a.m. We were very, very worried about her driving alone in the dark on no sleep. I called and of course, no answer. So I called the boy's parents and asked them to text him. Had to get them out of a noisy restaurant/party twice. Sigh. Meanwhile, easy child called and said she was going to sleep there after everyone watched a movie. I asked what time the movie would be over and she said "11?" with-a questionmark in her voice. In easy child-time that means 1 a.m. I told her that husband and I were very, very worried and that she didn't have much of a plan, and what was wrong with-her dorm anway? Her friend and roommate, Sh, was mad at her, and the other roommate, S, the Aspie, was into staring and general weirdness. But then easy child allowed that it would be nice to sleep in her own bed. So she left and called me when she got back to the dorm. I just called her (set my cell alarm) and she was already awake (amen!!!) and printing out directions to the airport. She's going to call me when she gets to the airport. She has travelled to Honduras but it was with-an organized group. This is her first trip totally alone. The plan is for the family to meet Sat night to discuss strategy, then do the intervention Sun night at a friend's house. It doesn't help that my little sister told me last wk that she couldn't locate difficult child and couldn't get ins. to cooperate. I almost cancelled easy child's trip. She's going to be sleep-deprived and has 8 a.m. classes Tues. I called my sistser around dinnertime and she said they had located difficult child, her friend from Colo had flown in, and they had put $ down for the intervention and were working out the details for the rest of the money. (She wants to use difficult child's college funds and husband wants to move the funds to their son's college. Sounds like he doesn't want to pay for the intervention ... just another husband who doesn't get it and thinks he can configure the finances up until the last min.) I hate not knowing how things are going to work out. First, it was all the hurricane warnings and wondering if we'd get hit (we were lucky and just got skirted) and then it was easy child and her fluff non-plan for partying and no sleep b4 the airport. Anyway, I feel better now. I'm going back to bed. We're going to the Outer Banks tomorrow (Sat) afternoon, assuming that the power is back on the roads are not flooded. It's been planned for mo's. Sigh. Thanks for listening.
