I know I haven't posted for a while. Busy season is kicking my butt. On Friday morning, though, it will all be over. And then I get two 4-day weekends in a row. Woo Hoo! No medical information to report because I haven't had any appointments lately. I have both a radiation follow-up and a plastic surgeon consult in January. Then, nothing until March.
Monica has an ex-friend who contacted me anonymously (from another friend's phone) to report that Monica has been smoking cigarettes and pot and sneaking out to be with a man that is 6 years or so older than her. She finally confessed who she was when Kevin and I started calling that number to find out who it was. I no longer smoke, so I would smell smoke on her if she had been smoking, and I know that this ex-friend does most of the things she accused Monica of.
I contacted her mom and suggested that they come over to hash things out and move on with their lives, and that Monica was willing to take a drug test so we should test them both. She agreed to be here today at 2. I brought the test home yesterday and Monica took it. Nothing. (I'm not the least bit surprised.) Today, they called to ask if they could postpone. Eh. Whatever. I like this lady and have no beef with her at all, so if they ever come over, that's fine. If not though, it'll be no skin off my nose.
The allegations of Monica sneaking out prompted me to ask when this supposedly happened last. Ex-friend said that it was on Monica's birthday. Umm, if you are going to make things up, make up a random date. Don't pick one so easy for us to remember. Monica was with me all evening. We were laughing about the stupidity of a guy who was sending stupid texts to her. We stayed up late that night.
This other girl just thrives on drama. I know that all teens have some drama, but this one is over the top. She tried trash-talking about me to Monica, and that was the last straw. This family has had enough drama in the past year without some immature little girl making up stories. Also, being faced with my mortality has made my children pretty dang protective of me. We're content to just be happy together.
So, with the afternoon free, we cleaned house and I made a big pot of chili. Time for some football and a nap. I love weekends.
