The girls - RJ and Frenchy - are with XSU this weekend. Thank goodness. I needed the break and it couldn't have come soon enough. I don't know how single parents with little ones who demand attention manage because two 16 year old girls and I am crawling by the end of the day. There is something to be said for having babies at age 21 instead of a career. That way you're not in your 50s going through perimenopause and dealing with a hormonal teen too. Too many of the wrong kind of hormones mixing together. I digress.....
Rushing to get dinner. Getting things done after dinner. Taking the dog out for a walk. Hopefully things will calm down a little once Frenchy heads home. I have tried asking RJ to do more to contribute and I am not getting too far.... yet. Again her father's legacy. I continue to demand and every now and again - when she wants something - I manage to get some cooperation. I am not like her father and I won't end up giving up and doing things myself. I don't have that energy. The girl needs to be responsible and contribute to this little household.
She pulled a couple of fast ones this week with Frenchy and I let XSU know I wasn't impressed and he shouldn't be either. By Sunday afternoon her phone - and life line via text - will be turned off for a few days and I have hidden her laptop - again- until I see a few changes. Though I have to admit her not having cell access ends up disturbing me almost as much as it bothers her. I am already gearing up - ear plugs please - to deal with her whining and yowling about her phone and blah blah computer for homework. Talk to the hand I say.
I have to call XSU and see what he's decided to do - if anything - I suspect his gum surgery will be making him stupider than usual and he won't be doing much of anything in the consequences of your actions department. Can you see me roll my eyes.
