And now? Call from the guidance counselor, in which one of the points raised is "Elayna says there's no food in the house, nothing but chicken soup."
So then there's half an hour of him trying to lead me into saying "Oh yes, we are broke, notify the food bank."
Which... no. Just no. My refrigerator is chock full. Pantry, too. To the point where one must play Tetris in order to get anything else in there. It's just not food she wants. Because she only wants chicken soup, ramen, or mac & cheese.
Yes, we have tried getting her to go through the cookbooks to find stuff she wants to try. Doesn't work.
Would be going nuts right about now, but being silly with themaskmaker on IM is ameliorating it a bit.
