I wish I had all the answers to solve everyone's issues including my own. My kids are so needy and it is going to wear me out. I know people have it a lot worse then I do and I am thankful that my kids are fairly healthy. Tygen who is 9 has severe ADHD. It drives me nuts at times. He's practically failing 4th grade because of it. I am finally having a meeting with the school to see if he has learning disabilities. that took me 4 years to get to this point. I waited until last year to medicate because I wanted to be positive that, that was what it was. Notto mention being a nurse and seeing the side effects of meds. My daughter Lorelei is 7 and has issues of her own. I don't know if it is depression, ADHD or what, but she talks suicide all the time. I've had her in therapy now for several months because of this. Their father is hardly involved in their lives at all which is really sad. So I have to push forward. So many times I want to scream, but hold it in because they are always around me. I am up at 5 every day including weekends just to get house work done. We are all ready and out the door by 7:25, get home at 3:30. Then is dinner, homework, baths etc... Then to get up and do it all again. When does it end, when does it get easier? Generally I am the happy, positive one. What happend here? Must have had a bad day. This is my only outlet right now. I can't get 5 minutes to myself.
We had our first snow flurries yesterday. I fired up the new snowblower which was wonderful. I think my old one was 40 years old at least. My grandpa gave it to me about 10 years ago. Never reallyworked right. Looking forward to one that will throw snow for a change. I am sure I'll be out at 4 am to get the snow cleared soon enough.
Kids were at the dentist today. YEAH, my son did't have any cavities, but my daughter did. We'll be back in a couple of weeks to have that taken care of. Then at Christmas my sister will check and see if her molars are all the way in so we can get sealants done. Guess the medical stuff runs in the family. My sister wanted to be a nurse, but didn't want the "odd" hours. I guess I got lucky to be in the clinic.
Enough hu drum negative stuff. Thanks for listening;)
