My ex picked the WRONG weekend to cancel on me! I am super stressed out. Work has been crazy and it's that time of the month for difficult child 1 and she is damn near impossible to deal with! First of all this morning she gets up and immediately doubles over in pain due to strong menstrual cramps. She starts crying and saying that her back and stomach hurt so bad that she can barely stand. I told her I would give her some midol and she would probably be feeling better within 30 minutes. difficult child, in her overly dramatic teenage fashion, claims she is hurting so bad that she is unable to walk to the car. She inists that the pain is so bad that no amount of medication will help. Normally I would insist she take the pills and suck it up, but I was already late for work and didn't want to continue arguing. I agreed to let her stay at home. Normally I do my grocery shopping on Friday nights, so by this point in the week we are almost completely out of food. Both difficult children eat lunch at school. The only food we have in the house right now is a loaf of bread and some hot pockets in the freezer. I remind difficult child of this. She is not too fond of hot pockets, but I tell her that if she really wants to stay home, hot pockets and toast are her only options at this point. She says that's fine and convinces me to let her stay home. At around 11:30 she texts me and asks me to bring her some food on my lunch break. I remind her that my license is still suspended, and I am not allowed to drive anywhere but work and back, and I am absolutely NOT allowed to drive on my lunch breaks. She tells me to risk it and drive anyway. I remind her that getting caught is an automatic ten days in jail here in CA and there's no way in hell I'm going to risk it. I remind her of our conversation earlier this morning, when I told her she would need to make do with hot pockets if I were to allow her to stay home. She then tells me that she has been repeatedly texting my mom asking her if she will come by and get her something to eat. My mom told difficult child she is too busy today and does not have the time to get her something to eat. I tell difficult child she is going to have to wait until I get home and there's nothing more she can do about it. I tell her to stop texting me at work. I'm busy and I can no longer continue to argue with her. Then she calls me. As soon as I answer the phone she starts crying and saying that she is dying of starvation. I tell her if she's really that hungry, then she'll eat the hot pockets. She tells me she hates hot pockets so much that eating them makes her taste buds hurt. I tell her to deal with it and to leave me alone. Before she can say anything further, I hang up on her. Now she is blowing up my phone with text after text. She texts me to come give her f**king food now and she says she doesn't care if I get upset at her for cussing. She is begging me to call my mom and ask her once again to bring her food. At this point right now I'm sitting here at work, trying to keep calm, and ignoring her texts. She is really stressing me out. I now have to look forward to coming home later today and hearing her tirade about how nobody loves her and I['m a horrible mother who doesn't care if her very own daughter is starving to death. difficult child isn't the easiest kid to deal with as it is, but when she is on her period she is damn near impossible to be around. I totally would have loved to have been able to ship her off to her dad's this weekend. Since that won't be happening, I just have to suck it up and deal with it. Hopefully both difficult children sleep early tonight and I can have a couple hours of peace at least. Please pray that I do. I just wanna be left alone.....argh!!!
