Little Idiot is NOT going to boot camp
Little Idiot was supposed to come back this weekend. DH’s family planned a big “going away picnic” for her and DH got her a cake.
I figured there was gonna be drama as she was supposed to come back tomorrow but I saw as of last night that she hadn’t bought a plane ticket..... didn’t say anything to DH though.
Well guess who I get a text message from this morning?
There was a long phone call between her and DH and several texts sent but this is the gist of it:
- Little Idiot still doesn’t “feel ready” to go.
- She has been “depressed for months” about it and didn’t know how to tell us. (Depressed about having having to DO something with her life that is... you know, more than laze around all day)
- Little Idiot spoke to her recruiter and has pushed back the date to September, she claims the recruiter is fine with this. (Why do I feel like she is lying??? This is the most understanding/accommodating recruiter I’ve ever met!)
- I told DH she can stay down in FL until then and if she ends up not going or deciding on college she needs to go down there to college because I am DONE. DH is not happy with me AT ALL and hasn’t agreed to that last part but honestly the NY excelsior program is strict and you have to live in this state for the same number of years that you go to college after you graduate. I know she doesn’t want to do that.
- Her run times have been “going up and down” (well she’s only been telling us the “down” times apparently ) and she thinks she is going to fail again.
- She is definitely for sure 100% no-buts-about-it going back in September (snort yeah right!) and DH of course believes her and “she is making the right choice.... blah blah blah.... everyone blossoms at their own pace.... she just wants to be sure she takes her last chance seriously.... blah blah blah”
- Oh but she also said maaaaybe I will go to college for a year down here then go in? Um how? You spent every last penny that you earned working. You don’t have a car now. You are a resident of NYS, not Florida (better get that changed back to FL then Felicia) and NYS will not let you get aid through the program and go for just a year.
