argue just for the sake of an argument? I know it's not an uncommon thing, especially for teenagers. You know, they know everything & are always always right - even when they are wrong! Miss kt was in true form last evening, just after dinner. We had a fine meal together however when it came to clearing dishes, the argument was off & running. To be real honest I have no clue what it was even about as it was between husband & kt. I have to say that I won't engage in that kind of nonsense as much as husband will - he gets so drawn into the war of the wills. I'll tell you why; husband & kt love to hear themselves yell. The sound of their own voices is exciting. Gives me a headache! And then the both of them try to draw me into their melee (which is total & utter nonsense). I'm sure it was a dating issue brought up to be argued about by kt. in my humble opinion, it isn't up for discussion until kt is 16 - thems the rules. kt, always thinking, was trying to convince husband that they should negotiate that rule - "since mom is sick." Okay, that didn't go over so big with me but I kept out of it. And I believe the entire argument was a ruse to get out of dinner dishes. I cleared up the entire kitchen while husband & kt made noise. Just wanted the kitchen cleaned up so I could sit down & relax & I can't do that until the kitchen is cleaned. The both of them know that I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen! The rat finks!
