Life... is... difficult.

Ah, yes... I can recall the days when I had stuff to blog about, and would blog frequently. And I would visit blogs, and people would visit mine, and we'd all have a jolly old time!

Those were simpler times.

Times before... teenagers.

I love my kids more than anything (of course, one of them disagrees and is pretty sure I hate him and my sole purpose on this earth is to ruin his life... so in return he has told me to my face that he wants nothing more than to make me miserable) but my GOD they drain every last bit of energy, emotion, imagination right out of me.

Oh, and I've ruined his life.

And, he's miserable because of me.

Did I mention he's unhappy and depressed, and it's all my fault?

This has been going on for MONTHS. I used to feel guilty, but I'm over it.

I used to have to walk on eggshells before I moved out here (in fact, it's one of the reasons I moved), now it seems like I'm walking on them again. I'm not treading so lightly this time, but still....

Ok, I'm done venting. Sorry. Maybe my next post will be happier, but the summer is just starting.

BTW, my other teenager is being much more respectful to me and still likes me. I just need to point that out.

I'm so sorry Amy.

Good luck. I'm not looking forward to the teenager stage. No not one bit.

If they don't hate you every once in a while you probably aren't parenting enough. It sounds like you're doing great! I hear that my kids hate me a few times a week. (not that I'm doing such a perfect job) It is SO hard being a good parent. Keep your chin up and remember they really love you and they're just trying to become their own person.

Sounds like you are doing things right. Really. I know that doesnt make you feel better. There is a song thats out right now called Teenagers and it starts "teenagers scare the living shit outta me, they could care less unless someone will bleed" Yup, that about sums it up.

I'm sorry.

I kinda think that if they don't hate you, you're not doing it right.

Bravo for standing up and being firm.

Remember, correct them now or society will later.

the blog world isn't exactly like it used to be either.....

Can I say I did not like my mother so much when she moved us to PA in the summer before my junior year of high school. It took me awhile to forgive her even though I know she moved us to get a better job, etc.

I hope everything works out. Teenagers can be hell.
