I came home and got Daughter about noon. She made a couple of interesting (and truthful) observations to others once she got to the church (of course they immediately reported them to me). She felt find this morning, she just didn't want to get out of bed. She was frustrated because I'd locked all the electronics and food up.
I stayed late at the church to get some work done and to make her suffer a bit. When we got home, she went straight to the schedule on the refrigerator and started in on her chores. After supper, she asked me if there was any way she could earn her computer or DVD player back this evening. I informed her that she couldn't have them tonight, but if she got up with the alarm in the morning, she could have them tomorrow night.
She's pretty frustrated right now. I'm not buying into any of her drama. She's having issues with one of the men in her program. She sent me a text telling me she'd broken up with him, then sent me another text asking me to call the police because he wouldn't leave her alone. I replied that she needed to tell staff and stay away from him. I find it interesting that she uses her cell phone to ask me to call the police but not to call them herself. She's walking and doing steps without problem, but insists that her knee is in terrible shape.
She sees her doctor on Friday, so tomorrow I'll take her in for blood work. I warned her about that, and she informed me she wasn't going to let anyone take her blood now that we live in Capital. She keeps fishing for the thing that will get a reaction from me, but she hasn't found it yet. I'm sure at some point she will. For now, though, I'm doing a very good job of not taking the bait and refusing to engage the drama.

I assume the "truths" weren't flattering and were more along the lines of "She's really fat" and "He talks too much?"
What is she trying to accomplish by yanking your chain? Is it a misery loves company sort of thing?
I hope she shapes up. You have enough on your plate without your DD acting out.
