difficult child (20) is home for the time being, while he is going through the process of enlisting in the National Guard. He had previously been kicked out of my house for substance abuse, etc, etc. I don't think he hit total rock bottom, but he became tired of his lifestyle enough to decide to join the military. I wrote up a very lengthy contract for him to sign before moving back in. Evidently, I forget to mention that I demand and deserve respect. I informed him last night that a repairman would be coming by between 8:00-12:00 to look at the washing machine, and I would need him to be awake so that he could listen for him. Before I left for work, I went upstairs to wake him and tell him to come on down...all I hear is moaning, groaning, and mumbling under his breath. It really bothered me the more I thought about it, so I sent him a text when I got to work that stated that I did not appreciate him moaning and groaning because I asked a favor of him. His reply? "Well it's early and I got up...that's all that matters." Really? That's all that matters? Smartellic!! EARLY?? It was 8:30. And what the heck does he have to do all day besides sit on his butt and wait for his recruiter that might call? Oh my, I was so agitated. Sounds so petty to get upset over, but darn it, I've done and done and done and done for that boy, the least he can do is have some respect!
