When we find her she is. in. so. much. trouble.

We told her to come home after school and to skip practice, because we don't have the gas for the extra running to pick her up until payday. Which is just a few days, and they don't have practice tomorrow anyway.

Well, she didn't come home, and I am FREAKING OUT because we do NOT know where she is. She's 13. Around 4 she called from her friends' cell phone and said her coach offered to bring her home. We said Ok. 4:30 goes then 5 no DD. So we said Ok we'll just go and get her thinking they were waiting on other kids that were maybe waiting on the activity bus that doesn't go until 6:30 pm. We figured we'd just stress to her, that this means no extra activities the rest of this week because the extra money needed for the gas to do these things is not available until payday. Five minutes down the road, we pass the coach, headed towards where we live. So we turn around, thinking she's with him.

I've been home 30 minutes, NO coach, NO daughter. Husband has run down to where the activity bus drops off kids to see if she is there, my parents have taken off to the Jr. High to see if she is there, I'm waiting at the house incase coach shows up with her.

If no one finds her, we're calling the cops and filing a report.

If they find her, I'm grounding her until she is 40 and she quits cross country!

She says she thought I told her to just ask the coach to bring her home. Then she says when she called me, she thought I said her dad was coming to get her, but she told ME the coach would bring her.

I'm still livid. She just came in the door and turned on the water works thinking we'd go easy on her if she cried. Nope. She is NOT going to forget this lesson. Right now, we've sent her out to do all her chores plus her brother's chores, since he's been doing hers while she is at practice and stuff.

I am glad she is safe and never in real danger. Now you should kill her.

I'm so glad she is okay!

I've had a few of those moments happen here and I am always livid. I think sometime they have a conversation in their heads and then hear what they want to hear.

I'm a thousand levels of calm(er) today. She didn't give us any attitude or lip over anything last night, and was the best possible kid ever.

She's still grounded.
