I am having a really difficult time with this...I took three days off from work (unpaid) to drive my best friend, who also happens to be my 18 year old daughter, from CT to Charleston, S.C. It was very stressful as I have lupus and tire easily and suffer from a great deal of pain. We stopped and spent the night in Virginia then did the rest of the 8 hours the next day. I settled her into her new apartment and went shopping for all the necessities (groceries, linens, 19 different stores to find the right dresser and bedside table, etc. I have relatives down there so i was able to stay with them. I spent the day getting her registered and paid her tuition. I also wrote her a journal of all the little tid-bits and helpful hint for living on her own along with some easy and nutritious recipes. Then flew home last Tuesday. I missed four days of vacation time with my new husband (he only closes his shop for one week out of the year) in order to help her move. I called her on Tuesday to see how she was making out and she couldn't give me the time of day! She was cold and distant and acted as if I was bothering her! She never once thanked me for all that I did for her. I hung up the phone after telling her not to bother calling me until she read what I had written about humility and gratitude! I am having a real hard time with this and want to give her an itimized list of all that I have done for her over the past year in preparation for her move. I don't know if this is her way of separating from me or if she is really that shallow. Any ideas?
