Not so good!!!!
This week has been one thing after another. First, Monday was very busy away from the house. Piano lessons, TaeKwon Do Lessons, and time with friends tend to make for a full afternoon. So...Not much was accomplished that day! :(
Tuesday, son #2 decides to pretend he doesn't feel well so he can get out of doing his schoolwork. Actually, it all started Monday evening. I'm not such a terrible mom; I let him stop the work he was doing and go lie down. He had no fever, but I understand that you don't have to have fever in order to feel bad. But...
When you have a kid who will do ANYTHING to get out of his schoolwork... Well, I have a problem with this. I had to explain to him, AGAIN, that sometimes even when we don't feel 100% wonderful, we can still do what is required of us. Oh, what troubles!! The same heart to heart talk for the millionth time!!!! So, miraculously he became new again and was able to do his work! What a miracle! Huh Hmm!!!
Thursday, plans for the day were changed. My son #1 attended a speech and debate competition. I was glad for that. I have always wanted him see what it was like, so that he could maybe get involved with it in a couple of years. Believe it or not, I was able to get a little house "stuff" done during this time.
Then Friday comes...
Do you think I got anything accomplished??? NO!!!
The same old thing!!
Just about a whole afternoon was wasted on the same issue! He has issues with complaining, dawdling during his work, and not being responsible!! By the time Dear Hubby got home, I was over the edge. I had had enough. AGAIN!!
Thankfully, tomorrow is a new day!! New beginnings. New chances to get caught up!
