I have to go to FL for two days. Just two measly days, but out of those two days I will only be working for about 2-3 hours, interviewing someone. The rest of the time I am FREE. All day Tuesday and then all afternoon Wed. So, out of the goodness of my heart I arrange for difficult child to come with me - just for a shot in the arm of some warm weather, a break away from here. Heck, she's not working or going to school and whenever I go away on business, she and H get into something ugly, so I just figured it'd be a nice getaway for both of us to spend some fun time together. And it wasn't cheap. So, this morning the agent calls and says she can get difficult child on the flight with me and difficult child is sitting in front of me at my office and I ask her, she says "okay, I guess so" and I give the agent my credit card info. After I hang up, difficult child says, "I don't know if I really want to go" real quiet-like. So I called back the agent ASAP and cancelled - fortunately, she hadn't sent it in yet. Then when I hang up, difficult child is annoyed with ME for cancelling!!! Then she starts complaining about how she hates to fly, she will be mad about experiencing warm weather and then having to come back to this cold place....etc. I mean, c'mon, gimme a break here. If my mother ever, which she never did, offer me a FREE two day getaway to FL, I wouldn't have hesitated to say "YES!!!!" I would love to know exactly what it is that is wrong with my 19 year old daughter. Sun, surf, free? Sounds like a dream to me. Guess I'll just have to enjoy all that down time by myself at Clearwater Beach. Hmph.
