so last night Difficult Child called for a ride home from work, husband drove the couple miles to bring her home, about 9pm. He gets there, then she says her coworkers are going to a movie and she begs to go, since she is an adult and all... I really didn't want her to go, as today is a school day, and she has to go directly from school to work. I told her if she goes, she had to get herself up and ready for school on time. And be responsible for bathing, washing hair, and getting uniform clean to wear today. Well, she came home at almost midnight. Did manage to get up and dressed for school. No shower, hair not washed, uniform not washed. And...I took her and little sis to school. I didn't mention that she didn't take her work clothes and put them in the car...so when I pick her up at 3:30, we will have to drive home, she has to change in to her dirty work clothes, and try to get to work by 4pm. We live in fairLy small town, but it will be impossible to get to work on time. She is a hostess at a restaurant... It took all week to have her complete the social security form to see if she can get benefits...she is so scattered. I wish I could have made a videotape of her dealing with the form. Practically in meltdown mode. Questions like, do you need help bathing? Of course she wrote no. Which is kind of right, except she "forgets" all the time, same with washing hair. The question about financial capabilities...yes, she can count change. She didn't think she needed help managing money. I told her she really should put down that she loses or her money gets stolen often! She "lost" the cash from her last two pay checks, as she is an adult now, and I can't tell her what to do with her money nice she works. Sigh...a never ending battle.
