Find a Conversation

First off, I understand my discussion title is inappropriate. But I'm just over it. I'm over my step-daughter. I come home and she can't be bothered to say "hi" to me, like I did to everyone and everyone BUT her did back to me. Then she goes all night without talking to me. Fine, annoying, but fine. I have a lovely time making conversation with everyone else. So then at the end of the night, I stupidly ask her about this outfit I had helped her put together a week or so ago. She mentioned that she needed a shirt to wear with a skirt she loved, but didn't have one, so I found a shirt, vest and belt from my own closet and let her borrow them. Just told her to put them back when she was done. Well, she gets an attitude with me tonight after I ask saying that she decided not to wear it. Bummer, because it was cute, but whatever. "Did you put it back?" I asked. Had to ask three times because she was pretending not to hear me. To which she finally responded "no" with as much attitude as her 14yo-going-on-30yo-little-butt could muster.
Now I understand that's not much to b*tch about, but it comes on the heels of a similar incident yesterday, and well, alot of similar incidences before that. I'm over her attitude, her everything really because I know that all she's doing is driving a wedge between her and her father's relationship, not to mention hers and mine. However, it's an increasingly frustrating situation that seemingly shows no end in sight. I for one am just so sick of it. Her grandmother being in town currently is the only reason she isn't grounded. I'm THISCLOSE to just being a snippy little b*tch back. (sorry by the way, I'm not sure of the rules of the board, but I think that's ok)
Anyway, I know returning the attitude won't solve anything, but I'm tired of always trying to "amend" how I respond, when I'm doing all the trying and she apparently can't be bothered to even be decent to me.
