well, that's the message in a nutshell--Yesterday I got up and found out that $10 was missing from my wallet. This has happened before, but sometimes I question whether I really had that amount of money that I thought and have to go through what I bought since I got the money out of the ATM. This time I was sure that it was missing because DS needed $10 for a field trip and I was saving that aside, plus I had another $20 (I'm really rich).
Now I believe that DSD is taking the money, but I have no proof. It just so happens that on that particular morning, she got up early to drive her dad to work at 6:00 a.m. so she could have the car and noone else was up. I had left my bag in the kitchen. My DD stayed up late the night before, so she could also have taken the money. The thing is that my DD has no problem asking me for money if she needs some--she'll just say I didn't have a chance to go to the bank, can I borrow $20 and give it back to you later, or something like that. The other time the money was missing that I can remember was another morning that DSD had again gotten up early to drive her dad to work and noone was up, cause it was on a Sat. I thought a $20 was missing, but that time I wasn't as sure. I knew I had gotten some money from the ATM and was surpised that it disappeared so fast.
This is so depressing. I don't want to have a confrontation about it w/ DH cause I have no proof and I don't want to get into a situation of blaming. All I can do right now is start bringing my purse into my room when I go to bed and DH will probably ask why. His DD has a history of lying. I know if I ask her, she will just deny everything. She can boldly lie while looking you right in the face. Over the last weekend, she had his car and ended up w/ 2 blown tires, a broken wheel and broken tailpipe. She swears she knows nothing about what happened--she was sleeping at a friend's house and just came out in the a.m. and it was like that. Since the hubcaps were also missing, I thought it might be that someone came by and slashed the tires and stole the hubcaps, but w/ the broken wheel and tailpipe, both DH & I are thinking that it was raining and she probably hit a pothole that she didn't see because of a puddle or something. I just mentioned "i wonder how that could have happened" and she doesn't say anything.
