those pesky details again

As I have stated many times my kids at home are alcohol effected. This includes my seventeen year old daughter currently away at CAP camp. Today is the day she told us she was returning home. Also, she put herself on the schedule at work for tomorrow. She was scheduled at seven am. Luckily for her, her dad took her off the schedule,thinking she would be exausted.
We had a plan here at the house. I would pick her up when the van returned to town and then she,the boys and I would eat at her dad’s work. This way, he too could see her.
When I hadn’t received a phone call to pick her up by eight pm this evening, I became concerned. I asked her brother to check what time her camp ended so I could do the drive time math.I wanted to know if it was time to panic. He checked. There was no reason to panic.
Her camp ends tomorrow.
It should have, but did not, occur to me to check her return date myself. I figured (incorrectly,it seems) she would have her dates and days correct. After all,she did schedule herself to work tomorrow morning.
Sometimes you just have to shake your head.
The boys and I still ate at my husbands work tonight.
We were hungry.
