The teen is just spiraling... missing from school yesterday - left early because she "didn't want to be there". I coaxed her into the car and off to school to meet with the assistant principal, who - by the way - looks to be about 12. I guess I'm really just getting old. She went through her speech about the gravity of the offense and announced the potential punishment would probably be a 2 day suspension. What a great punishment for someone who is failing and hating school!
I let it all fly at that point. It was not pretty, there were a lot of tears, but perhaps it was just what was needed to FINALLY be heard.
I am super stressed and anxious today; mostly because I am seeing a lawyer tomorrow and writing a big fat check for money we really don't have, and it's a gamble. Results aren't guaranteed. My daughter needs a different school... It's more than likely that she'll have to repeat a year, but whatever...
I've had ice cream for dinner the past 2 nights. That is NOT WHOLE 30... although it is the only real cheat... although there is no cheating on WHOLE 30 - only starting over... and never quitting. Meh.
