So, the last cpl wks, difficult child was HORRID! He's doing much better this weekend.r Turns out he was sneaking nachos at school, ate an ENTIRE pizza at home (I told husband not to keep buying them. Next time I see one in the freezer, it goes outside or to the neighbor's) and was very sleep deprived. Threatened to take away his cell ph and THAT did the trick. Also, he was gaming way too much, and arguing with-his girlfriend. I think he has two gfs. I heard him say "I love you, A" on the ph the other day and his girlfriend is N ... so he's got a heavy load to carry there ... Anyway, I locked down the cord, only allowed him to go to his friends' house for 1-1/2 hrs, made him go to baseball even though I knew it would be rained out, etc. I think I'm doing better this weekend because I finished with-most of my cousin's dr appts (VERY time consuming) and did not have to fly to MN (My dad, who has Alzheimer's, is in a final stage, got kicked out of assisted living, and my little sister took him home. Another sister flew there, and the two of them got into physical altercations with-Dad and little sis finally decided that Dad being strapped down in the psychiatric ward wasn't a bad idea after all, so they can do a medication wash). In short, I can focus more on difficult child now and not be so fragmented. Friday: difficult child washed his urine-soaked comforter. Yay! Yesterday: difficult child shaved!!! Woo hoo! Today: He swallowed a huge, horse pill sized omega 3. Double woo hoo! We are starting him back on it. Can't find the tiny ones any more so I just bribed him with-15 min of gaming. Next week: catch up on homework ... lots of after school help. Thanks for all of your support, all of you! husband is tired of talking about difficult child so I'm glad to have all of you.
