This has been the worst day!!!
First I woke up to a county sherrif at my door wanting to arrest me but instead they took my DH for a warrant for comtempt but we didnt do anything wrong. We had to go to court a while back for a judgement(long story) and the judge told us to send in a Fact Information Sheet within 20 days. I did that but they didn't get it. I guess it got lost in the mail. It took them a year to let us know this and instead of telling us they didn't get it they decided to put out a warrant for our arrest but they said they coul;d take one of us and DH said I wan't going that he would go. So I called this attorney that did this and found what I had to do to tkae care of it and get him out and so I went to pick DD form school early so she could watch the 2 boys that are home and they informed me that she never came to school today. She decided to skip. So I called her cell and when I finally got her to answer she lied to me 3 times before she told me where she was. Her and her friend left with her friends cousin. My DD is 15 and this girl they went with is 22. I don't know her or what she drives and when she finally brought them back she dropped them off at the store right across from us so I didn't get to confront her. I wanted to have her put in jail. Anyway I did my part in getting things straight so DH can come home tonight. Now I have to wait for the judge to sign the order to sqash the warrant. He would only have to be in one night but I don't want him in there that long if I can help it and he doesn't need this on his record. He has a completely clean record and I would like it to stay that way. OMG!! What a day!!
Thanks for letting me vent a little. I will keep you guys up to speed on what is happening with DH.
I am so sorry. As someone who has BTDT (with Rich) just stay calm. Getting all worked up is not going to help any. Your DH is strong and will be OK.
Nail DD to the wall. Skipping is unacceptable and will not be tollerated and I would get the # for that lady and call her and give her a piece of my mind as well as the parent to the other girl DD with with. Good luck.
Bad day indeed! Are you in Texas? They are having a warrant round up this week - well not in my county because they don't have any room in the jail.
Yikes, on both the arrest warrant and your daughter skipping school!
Wow, that is a bad day. If it were me, dd would have picked the wrong day to mess up. LOL She would be grounded forever. LOL
Oh you can bet she is in a lot of trouble. I just can't deal with that until I get DH out. I have already taken her cell phone and dared he rto touch the house phone or computer. When DH heres about this he is going to blow his top with her. I did talk to the parent of the other girl. I called her as soon as I found out DD wasn't in school. She was so mad. They live right across the street and when the girls walked up I could here her yelling all the way at my front door.
Update on DH. He should be released in an hour or so. The attorney sent a letter to the judge to have the warrant withdrawn and they faxed it to the jail. Now I am waiting on the jail to process the papers and release him. God I hate this. And I guess the part that makes me feel so bad is that he did this to keep me from going to jail.
Wow. When it rains, it pours. This 22 y/o is contributing to the delinquincy of minors, I wonder if she even realizes that? I hate to say it, but I can think of only a couple reasons that two 15 y/o girls would skip school and hang out with a 22 y/o. This is not good news.
Of course, you need to get your DH home, but you have a huge problem brewing with your 15 y/o DD that the 2 of you will need to deal with.
I hope you get him home soon!
Oh my! You have had a really rotten day! I hope your dh is home soon!
You poor thing! It must be so frustrating for you! Hope you can get things with your dd and your dh straightened out!
What a mess!!! It just seems like when it rains, it pours. I hope your dh is out soon, and you can talk some sense into your dd.
Here's to a better day tomorrow!!
That is a BAD day! I'm so sorry and I hope tomorrow is a little better!
Thanks everyone! HE IS HOME!! He was released today a little before 5:00pm. I am so glad to have him home. He works everyday and is gone longer than that but knowing were he was today about drove me crazy. This is not supposed to ever show up on his record. So that was good news.
As for DD, well she is not allowed to hang out with her friend anymore. The friend has been bragging about going to bars and some other bad stuff when she is with the 22 y/o cousin so I am not having DD around that crap. I took all phones, computer, and whatever else I can think of away. She is grounded for and unspecified amount of time. We had a talk and she knows she has truly hurt my trust for her. She has to gain that back. We will see how it goes.
Again Thanks for listening and fopr your good thoughts!!
Sorry you had such a rough day. I hope tomorrow is much better.
Glad everything worked out that would have been scary. I hope your dd is able to turn things around to. I don't look forward to the teen years.
OMG, what a bad day... Hope things turn around for you today..
I hope today is a much better day, Latonya. I'm so glad your husband is home again.
Hugs to you!
big huggggz to ya !! dont it seem when it rains it pours all at once... keep ya head up. I remember catching my daughter skipping school. OMG she was so scared and grounded for the rest of her life. LOL she is twenty now and we joke about it but teens are not known for picking the best time to act out. tell her that if u caught her doing this cuz out of the blue something else triggered her being caught imagine what will happen next time... food for thought
Oh I have it very clear how bad it will be if there is a next time. Her principal called this morning to let me know that she has ISS tomorrow and that if she misses another day I will get an automated phone call. She has had to many unexcused absentences this year because she won't bring in notes if she misses a day and we have had a lot of viruses going around our house lately so she has been out quite a bit. It just makes me mad that she won't take her notes in and I may end up in court trying to explain to a judge why this is happening.
As for DH I think all is back to normal. His job is giving him a bit of a hard time because he is security. They have to be sure that this was not his fault and not on his record. So he spent half of his day explaining what happened to them over and over. But I am praying all will be OK with that. The strangest part was this warrant was supposedly filed in Nov. 2006 and in Dec 2006 his job did a background check and it never showed up. Who knows.
Thanks for reading this and all of your advice. I will figure something out with DD. I hope this scared her.
