Frustration Level Increasing with SD's Inconsistency
So I've posted before about how SD was being wishy-washy about going to the main college campus in our area, about 1.5 hours away. We took her to the open house last Friday where she immediately chickened out and complained that she "wasn't sure about her major and it was too hard to register." I immediately freaked out and got pissed off, and DH assured me she will be gone by August no matter what.
Yesterday she announced to us that she plans to...drum roll... "enroll in some more classes locally and get a studio apartment because the classes are cheaper than the main campus." When asked why she doesn't want to go to the campus and live in the dorms, she really could not give a concrete answer and almost made it sound like she didn't want to be there at all, even in the future. WHY?!?!?!?
This "woman" who will be 19 on Sunday moved all the way here and has lived with us for almost a year FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOING TO THAT SCHOOL. Now suddenly she's decided to stay in town, take a few more classes, work, and be miserable? She TOLD us both she was not happy just working, classes, and going home yet now she's decided to throw the stress of paying for an apartment into the mix? It literally makes ZERO sense to me. Honestly, it seems to me she should just go back home to Mommy. This was a failed experiment but no one wants to admit it.
Don't get me wrong, I am glad she at least realizes she needs to get out but I know how she operates: She will want to spend weekends with us (NOPE) and then when the proverbial sh!t hits the fan of having money problems, she will come running to daddeee for help. I told DH this is all pointless and he said he will continue to try and "nudge" her to the campus but I just don't know one minute to the next with this "woman" and what her goals are. None of it makes any sense whatsoever and frankly, it's pissing me off. At this point she might as well fly home and start from scratch there. At least she'd have her friends and her beloved BM. Why us? Why me? Why when you're unhappy? GO HOME!!
