The Full Fledged REBEL is back - and with a vengeance. It's a long story for another post. I'll get back to it. Suffice to say that Rebel is pretty pissed with me. I haven't been "supportive" and a whole lot of other blah blah blah came out of her mouth today. I believe that the only reason she is with the loser BF is because she doesn't WANT to live at home and he is her ticket - for now. She is very angry and I think between the transplant and her parents separation she isn't handling things as well as she believes she is. If I could figure out a way for her to get therapy I would make it happen immediately. Her favourite line these days is "I am 21, an adult and don't have to tell you anything or pay any attention to what you say."
This will turn into a rant if I don't let it go now.
The Loser BF has yet to pay me any rent money either. I am supposed to be grateful that he cleaned the house for me - once.
On the other hand - I had a great trip to the US of A. Very productive and my boss and I travel well together. We got to know each other a little better and that is always a good thing. This was a 3 state, one district trip with touch downs or stops in Pennsylvania, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Okay... not great shakes but it sounds good.
I forgot to thank the XSU for taking my dog. I will drop off an email. I think that secretly, XSU likes the little dog, but won't admit it.
We thought RJ was leaving for France on the 2nd of February - she doesn't leave until the 10th. I have her for an extra week and a bit. sigh.....
I am *really* looking forward to an empty house - and getting things in order and having peace and quiet. All I want is to come home to a house that is clean, quiet and everything as I left it.
