As summer turns to fall, a reminder for Fiancé
As some of you may remember, my fiancé's 18 YO stole some airplane bottles of alcohol in Jan from me, several months after having gotten in trouble for bringing alcohol to school for a field day. Heck, this kid does something idiotic and stupid just about every 6 months. Nothing she does is too serious, but I draw the line at theft (and frankly suspect she's stolen from us before, but wasn't able to catch her in the act).
Since then, I've had a hard rule she is not allowed to be in the house alone, period. I've been nothing but kind, so won't put up with that BS.
Anyhow, she's now graduated high school and is preparing to go about 3.5 hours away for university. After a small kerfluffle where she tried to get fiancé to drive to graduation with her crazy pants mom (only 2 guests were allowed at the distanced graduation) and was told absolutely he was not driving nor sitting with his ex, and skid admitted she didn't want to have to be around her mom alone (he still refused), this summer has been low key.
I've only seen the skids twice this summer. They did finally come over for a weekend visit but spent all their time in their room as usual, so I explained again how it's not worth them visiting and the risk of us getting sick if they don't even spend time with him. They are all now teens and two of the three work summer jobs (the youngest isn't old enough to work this year). So odds they have time off together are low anyway.
Fiance and I were talking yesterday about what happens if the oldest's university goes online only in a month. He said that she could just move in with us. At which point, after I was done laughing I pointed out she had stolen from me, and I was not living with someone I couldn't trust.
After a bit of a show cukes look and a few sputters, he suggested she could get an apartment with friends. She doesn't want to live with her mother as all they do is fight. Granted her mom is full on crazy, but oldest also baits her. But not my problem, and I'm not taking skid on as an adult woman.
Please, keep your fingers crossed that her university does offer classes on campus! It'll be best for her to get out of her moms house, and she needs a plan that does not involve mine.
