|Happy Fucking Goddamn Birthday to Me

Turned 44 yesterday. Not bothered by the numbers. But got home to a call that my 16-year-old daughter had managed to get herself expelled--expelled-- from boarding school. Not suspended, expelled for the year.
Drugs, sex, and rock and roll. Well, I'm only speculating about the rock and roll part.
So now I have to drive 4 hours tomorrow to PA and pick her and all her stuff up. She had the good grace to be an honor roll student by now, and to be in the company of 5 other honor roll students who all managed to get themselves expelled together--I LOVE a fieldtrip!--so they are being allowed to finish the year via correspondence. And they may be allowed back next year.
I'm devestated. It's not that she did something stupid, it's that two weeks earlier we were talking about how the stupids seemed to be behind her. And I know that other people have done stupider things and turned out fine, but still others didn't, and it's tough from this end of it to know that it's all going to be okay.
I could rant on about the cascading crap of my life for the last two days, but this is the worst of it. The rest is just small annoyances piling atop each other. Maybe tomorrow I'll have the energy to get pissy about them.
