I try to make lemonade, but I end up squirting myself in the eye!
Oh yes it has been a very stressful time at the Goldblooms. I’ve been playing nurse maid to Jose who had outpatient surgery last week. The poor guy has been miserable! I also found out that my youngest son’s Phe levels are twice what they should be (he was born with PKU), and I have to make some major diet adjustments. Then a couple of nights ago my highly intelligent daughter decided that she could make it on her own and left in the middle of the night. We’ve been having some major problems with her and her respect for our authority. Since she is already finished with high school we told her if she got a good job and her own car we would let her move out before she turned 18 (in sept). We’d already tried to get her into college this coming fall and we told her she could live in the dormouse, but being the highly intelligent teen that she is she wanted to wait a year before starting college. Then she decided she wanted to go, but it was too late for this fall and freshman can’t start mid-year…so now she can’t get in until next August. If she doesn’t screw her life up too badly by then! I haven’t been able to sleep to well…Not knowing where one of your children is, or if they’re safe, or if they have anything to eat seems to mess with your ability to sleep. I have no idea who she is with but the last several months she has been communicating with thugs that she met on myspace. Well that about sums up how my life has been the last couple of weeks…I wonder if they have internet access at the local nuthouse?
UPDATE: Well Selina is home now. I called the police this morning and an officer came to my house and within a matter of a couple hours Selina was delivered to our front yard. Now that the police are involved she will go to a juvenile home if she runs off again before she turns 18. Hopefully she will listen to reason this time!
