And I am FUMING!!!! husband and I awoke this morning to discover that difficult child was already gone....and we realized that we have no idea whether she left this morning before 6:15 am (seems unlikely) or sometime last night (more likely). She is most likely with some guy....and most likely went out to have sex with him (yes - she is on the birth contrtol implant). By snooping through her bedroom, I have pieced together that the boy we invited into our house over the weekend gave us a fake name - so now I don't have the slightest idea who the heck he is....but that's probably the one she is with. Also weird - she is missing her fancy black dress and her nice dress shoes. School is starting just now - so I am waiting to hear whether she arrived. **** I am so beyond anger right now that I almost find myself in a strange calm. I have decided to take her musical instruments to the pawn shop today. I'm sure not whether I will use the money to buy something nice for myself - or whether we will invest it in home security monitoring... but either way, difficult child will arrive home this afternoon to discover a sign hanging on her music stand: "Isn't it frustrating when something you love is not where it is supposed to be? The is how WE feel when we can't find someone we love." What do you think?
