(You Drive Me) Crazy by Britney Spears
I'm losing my mind this morning. I had a great weekend which I'll post about when I'm in a better mindset & have the pictures ready. But for now, I must have a vent session. I know, probably not what you want to read on a Monday but I need it!
Anywho, here are the facts:
1. My cats have better work ethic than my seventeen year old stepdaughter. True fact! When I give wet food to my two cats - Chandler & Tyrion - I make them sit & sometimes "say please" before I set the dish down in front of them. If I ask Trouble to bring down her laundry "right away", it's like I've asked her to murder a litter of puppies. Really?!
2. My husband is basically a babysitter not a parent for his own kids. I thought of this last night. While he has kept them alive before I came into the picture & continues to do so, he doesn't really teach them anything. These girls, mostly Trouble, expect everything to be handed to them without any work or appreciation. It drives me crazy! When I was on my vacation last weekend, I got each of the girls some goodies from a fudge shop. Sunshine thanked me as she dug in, Trouble didn't thank me at all. I got them each something from Under Armour over this past weekend &, again, I got a thank you from Sunshine while I had to drag a thank you out of Trouble.
Why is that most kids nowadays have this feeling of entitlement? When I went fishing with my cousin, Colton, last week who just graduated from high school, we talked about that. He has jobs - yes, plural - & he's appreciative & did well in school (silver cords). I already gave him his graduation present & he gave me a huge hug & thanked me & was so excited about it. So, I know that there are decent kids out there but it seems that they are the minority. Does anyone else see that?
Okay, I think that I'm done with my vent session...
