AND I am not the one. Remember, I quit. He has a ton of missing work and always has an excuse NOT to do it. husband hasn't looked at his grades even though I remind him he promised the principal and he promised therapist. So - we get a letter today. I didn't work today. I spent the entire day fixing difficult child's room. We painted it a year ago. Brought the futon up. Walls are a different color. Two are red, two are lime green, ceiling is yellow. Kind of like a rubic's cube. difficult child is too big for the futon. He isn't sleeping well. So we went and picked up a full size bed last night from "freecycle". I stayed up until after 2am cleaning, washing, washing down the walls in the basement, vacuuming. Dropped difficult child off at school today and went out to find a bed frame, new comforter/sheets/mattress pad and one of those allergy/asthma mattress pads that zips up like a bag around the mattress. AAAGGGHHH. I hauled out the futon - alone. Set up the frame. Carried in the mattress and box spring from the garage - alone. Washed his new sheets. Has his room ALL set up. Looks really nice. Comes home and says WOW nice. Can I leave for friends now. My reply. Speak to your father. Dad is ready to bring him and difficult child wants to take the laptop. I told him I don't want you to. We use it. Please, please, please, over and over and over. All he does is play that stupid online game non stop. So, difficult child knew I didn't want him to take it. He starts packing it up in the bag and dad walks in. Says NO. He begs some more. Then leaves. Came back in for something and threw things on the ground in my direction and walked out. SEE - - - I quit and it is STILL my fault. He can never take NO for an answer. So, ofcourse here I am again feeling sad. Doesn't do homework. Has missing work. Lied about turning in homework and dad says...SURE you can spend the night at friends.
