    About difficult child going to school for the rest of the week. I really want to have my hopes up, but I then become so stressed that I can't handle it. I feel like I should just expect she won't go, and be pleasantly surprised. Did I mention I hate this. Going to go finish making dinner, and have a small pity party for myself. I am really missing easy child. I never realized how much she balanced our house out. And how much influence she has/had over difficult child. easy child called this afternoon, and difficult child went right back to doing H.W. because easy child told her she should.

    Wow, could she call daily? I talk to my sister once a day.

    Well, she did work, but getting her to school was more than a battle. I had to physically dress her, and force her into the car. Then walk with her to the guidance office to figure out what to do. I guess I am going to have to just expect every day to be a battle, and I can be pleasantly surprised if she goes willingly.
