DC1 was offered a cashier job today at a local hardware store -- his first REAL job! I am so unbelievably thrilled!!! And so is he No idea when he starts yet, but OMG this is such a huge step for him. Unfortunately, this brought out some chest-thumping behavior, and he's been lording it over DC2 today, and generally being a PITA toward him. I suspect there's been a bit of jealousy over DC2 having gotten a job sooner than he had. I foresee a conversation tonight when DC1 gets home from class. I don't think DC2 is sleeping well, or taking his medications regularly, and I'm not sure how much longer he can work this 11pm to 6am night shift because I think it's taking a toll on him -- tonight he exploded after I made some chore requests, but his tirade was targeted primarily at DC1, and then some at husband, and then some at me. All the little irritations of the day, no doubt, but it's clearly an exaggerated response. One step forward over there. One step sideways over here.
