Well readers, Since I last wrote, my wonderful daughter contacted me. First two texts were inquiries on how long was she being kicked out. I did NOT respond either time. 3rd contact was some long winded email on how she messed up, how she was sorry, why she did it, how she was young and was going to mess up. She even offered to pay rent. I blasted her from A-Z and told her she was not going to be able to live at home anymore because she went to far this time. I told her that I had never backed up any of my many years of thousands of threats--till now. I also informed her that she would never get the chance to lie to my face, be nasty in my home, disrespect me or the house rules, continue to make bone head decisions that end up costing me money or STEAL from me again. I told her that I loved her and cared but it was time for to grow the hell up and make adult moves since she has now committed an adult crime against her mother. I told her that her time in this nest was over and it was time for her to flap her wings and fly. I sent another email asking for the confirmation emails for the purchases she made with my credit card in her name. I'm trying to recoup most of the money from the items she ordered. She replied with a rant of how she only had $5, how she only had a few days to stay where I dropped her off before she would be homeless, how she was sick and going to die. She then told me that since I was done with her to at least give her the stuff she bought or the money from it. She told me she wasn't sending me nothing concerning the confirmation emails for the stuff she ordered. She then went on to ask what was she supposed to do??? I replied to her rant with... Figure it out! Good Night! I haven't heard from her since. Thanks to all who replied, for the hugs, words of wisdom, suggestions and advice. I greatly appreciate it. Last week was a very difficult week especially emotionally but each day I pray for GOD to protect and guide my child and to help me be strong. That's all I can do at this point. Day at a time. I'll keep you all posted as this story continues.
