difficult child just called me from school and told me she has a hangover. She actually wanted me to come pick her up because she felt like crap. HAHA. Even if I did have a car, I wouldn't pick her up. She can suffer through it and now she's grounded. I hate grounding, I don't think it does anything. I think it's basically useless, but right now I feel like I have no alternative other than to keep her at home 24/7. On Thursday evenings she attends an open mike session at a local coffee shop - all the kids go there. Apparently, someone had Captain Morgan and she imbibed. Stupid, Stupid @$$. I even thought she sounded funny last nightand asked her if she was drinking (she said no, her friend giggled in the back seat). She didn't smell like alcohol, she smelled like 8 million cigarettes though. I know things are sucking big time with her whole boyfriend situation, but this is no excuse. I am so angry. Eerrrgghh.
