One of Those Days

This is just shaping up to be a bad week for me I think. Rhi was crashing and slamming things around for about 30 minutes last night & then she stormed out here asking to go to Ryan's house. I asked her what the slamming was all about & she claimed she was just putting away some makeup she found in her room & then she left. Things didn't feel right about the situation, so I texted her & asked if everything was ok, because she seemed upset. She texted back that she was fine, just bored & I let it go, choosing to believe her.

This morning, Ryan mentioned that she was freaking out at his house last night & when I asked why he said he didn't know & shut up. I guess he realized then that she hadn't mentioned anything to me & didn't want her mad at him. I get that she doesn't want to talk to me most of the time, but would it kill her to say she's upset & just wants to talk to Ryan about it? Does she have to lie to me every chance she gets? Why? I don't lie to her. Ever. I did email her & tell her that I was through being lied to & that things were going to be changing around here.

Shortly after I sent my email off, Erin called & told me that he & his friend Colby are headed for San Diego, hitch-hiking at some point today. I'm so not okay with this, but again, there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. So, the nightmares & stomaches can start for me again, when I manage to actually sleep anyway. I made him take identification with him that has our address & phone numbers on it, in case something happens to him, so we can be notified. It doesn't make me rest any easier, but at least I know that I'll be told.

Not a good week, not at all.

Sometimes parenting just sucks. It's definitely the hardest thing we do. Hang in there!
