I think lying is the RAD residue I hate most. Daughter is such an accomplished liar that I can't tell when she is lying. It makes it impossible to believe anything she tells me.
I had a call from Case Manager this afternoon.
Yesterday Daughter ordered a large pizza in for lunch for all her friends. I have no idea where she got the money. She told staff she was celebrating. She took lunch in with her, but apparently threw it away and ate the pizza.
There hasn't been any work in at the workshop. The only work Daughter has had has been cleaning an apartment building one hour a week. She told staff she didn't want to go today, and that she didn't need the money because she had a job outside of the workshop that was paying her lots of money.
When she got home I asked her how the cleaning had gone today. She said it had gone well, and she'd done bathrooms and floors today.
She's been pouting since she got home. I asked if there was anything she wanted to tell me, and she insists there isn't. She suspects, though, that I know something. She will continue to deny everything, of course. Case Manager asked that I not tell Daughter what I know.
I have not been able to find out anything about someone to take her to the area track meet tomorrow. Right now, I don't want to be around her, so I want her to go to that track meet without me. If there isn't someone to take her, I then will have to talk to the coach and figure out if I can get her there and back before the memorial service I have tomorrow, or if I even want to try....
It's going to be a long evening. Secretary's foster sons are coming to town to play games with her. She, of course, wants nothing to do with that. She'd prefer to pout.

So where'd she get the money for the pizza? Is there any chance she could have earned it somehow? The mind boggles.

She may have had some money left from what I gave her a week ago. It was about $40 from 2 paychecks and some money she'd earned doing some chores for me. She bought a clearance dress for less than $10, and a mother's day gift. I don't know how much the pizza cost or how much she spent for mother's day.

Welcome to Rev Gals!
I am a single mom who has a RAD kid too. Mine is a bit younger than yours, but reading through your blog for a while I feel some of your struggle. The lying is one of the hardest things for me too.
The blogring is a fun thing. Glad you are adding in your story.
