Holidays are weird for me because difficult child has not been gone that long. She was home for Christmas (a month - long enough to rest up, get her loot and off she went again before Valentine's Day). Now we have Easter this weekend. We are not a religious family, so we really don't do anything for Easter. I usually get the kids a little something and we normally had an egg hunt. Now, difficult child is not living at home and my other child is almost 14. I did get them each a little something, still undecided on the egg hunt. To be honest, my heart just isn't in it this year...and I feel they are getting a bit old for it anyway.... My trouble is, while I would like to tell difficult child she can come over to visit and have dinner, she is not allowed to stay the night. I am unsure I want to deal with that drama. If she was here and then told me she had nowhere to go and I had to tell her to hit the bricks on down the road. How do you handle these situations? I want to see her, but it may hurt more than anything else. Especially if she doesn't look good. I just don't know what to do.
