Geez. After almost 25 years of marriage...you would think we could weather most everything. I have a wonderful husband and we have always figured things out. But this rough patch with my 16 yo son has done a number on both of us. My husband for the last 6 to 8 years have been on field assignments with work....home about six months gone to parts unknown for the other six. Great money wise...I don't work and have been able to be at home with the kids. It has been hard bur doable. Until last year....ugh beginning 2010....life here got really hard. Lots of conflict, trouble with school, trouble with sketchy new friends...you get the picture. But the last 4 months have been hell and I have had it. And then add insult to injury when trying to set limits for an unruly teenager...husband comes home and for some reason decides to "be a friend" to my son. In short, takes me out at the knees in the eyes of my son. And now...his field assignment is beginning in a week...off to the wild blue yonder and I am left here trying to deal with a 6'1 angry teen who now thinks that I am the entire problem. Fun...huh? We are just not really speaking and it is ridiculous but I am just to tired to try and figure it out. Any suggestions on getting this thing back on the tracks?
