Bet you thought this was a political rant? Nope, it's a domestic issue, I'm talkin' dishes toilet scrubbing kind of think.
Ok, I'm just really tired of the slacking around here. What is with this mom guilt? The thinking where "oh, I didn't get my place cleared, so I guess I'll just finish clearing everybodies, or I was watching a program and I was wasting time so I won't say anything about the conputer time they spent when they (the kids) were suppost to be doing the yard work...
WAIT a minute! I fixed dinner! I already mowed the gras!, I already did the laundry! So why shouldn't I expect a little effort in my lacking moments, and just because I'm lacking in being or not doing it all right, why can't they help pick up some of my slack!?
and what's with this being owed crap? I don't owe anyone a car just because they turned 16, or a $20,000.00 wedding, too bad for your others get it, but Deal with it, Those things just aren't options for us. or a Miami Oxford education. Those things just aren't options for us.
These things aren't part of our family structure....we work together, we aren't just owed these things are we???
Tired of my lacking being used against me for their slacking!
p.s. (I have a 18yr old...can 'U' tell)
what do you think? Are some things just owed? and what do you think those might be?
