No phone call around my birthday, no phone call around Thanksgiving, and no phone call this time, either. I received a text asking if I could assign her or "Mike" as an authorized user on our cell account so that she can go get a new SIM card. Um, gee, nice to hear from you? How about a "hi mom, sorry I have been out of touch"? Nope. Just a request. I ask her who "Mike" is and she says her boyfriend and he is an insurance broker. I asked her when that happened and she said a couple weeks before Thanksgiving (explains why I haven't heard from her...life must be A OK right now in her mind). She tells me where she is living and that she is working at Taco Bell there (hasn't given many details on that - I asked her when she started there, what are her hours, etc. no responses. I ask myself but why would she lie about it for no reason? Then I answer myself, she is a difficult child!!!) So I ask her about bartending school and she says she went and took the exam, passed but she is not pursuing. I asked her why not and she tells me that "Mike" doesn't want her to. Um, excuse me, huh??? Since when does she listen to well, anyone???? So, this is concerning but.....maybe he is really looking out for her best interests and doesn't want her working in that type of environment. I don't know. I don't know anything about this man. I do know that she rarely ever has a boyfriend. She seems happy? Maybe this could be what turns things around for her....but I am not holding my breath. She is still not telling me many details about anything and since she is an adult, I shouldn't stress myself out about it. I wish her the best, I am always here for her, I will always love her but I am so done being on this roller coaster. And at the same time, I seem to be immersed in this new communication and can't stop texting her questions that she is not answering. I NEED TO DETACH!!!!!!!!! I am going to go let Calgon take me away.....lol.....just needed to vent first.......lol.
