Just blowing off steam. I'm up earlier than usual after working nights. Because it is the weekend, difficult child is her usual, "my routine is interrupted, so I'll bug the out of mom" self. fully taking advantage of me sleeping days, by trashing the house and then leaving. Her and easy child come in here just to eat snacks and then take off leaving everything OPENED out on the counter,even perishables. backpacks, shoes, papers, trash, foodwrappers EVERYWHERE. They're still entertaining their friends outside on the balcony on the steps etc, then when I get up I'm still wearing something I slept in and the friends get to see me,because difficult child makes an excuse to come back in the house and then the friends are at the door gawking, because difficult child leaves it wide open! *yay* (((sarcasm))). So much for the no friends in the house rule, am I gonna have to make a "no friends within 50 feet of the door rule now? She knows zero about "consideration" for people. When I made them come in and clean up their mess,she'd pick up one thing. then go and instigate some argument with easy child who WAS cleaning up. Then she'd sit on the floor, talking with me, pick up one thing, and start an argument with me. Then she'd play with her hamster, argue some more about cleaning.... you get the idea. It was like she couldn't focus on one thing or didn't want to! difficult child was soooo snotty I had to call her dad (we're divorced and he lives in another state) to tighten her little azz up. She lies to him about being uncooperative and snotty to me, but at least she did what I said after speaking with him. wow only 2 weeks until her appointment with the Child psychiatrist. I cannot stand to be in this constant tug of war with her.
