it was a rough week and it was only a week. difficult child seems to need someone to be with. Even when he knows that person has to leave at a certain time he is making plans with someone else for that time. Well, that use to be the case. Seem's as if he spends most of his time alone these days. "everyone hates me" oh, it will be a long summer. And I just hate the fact that he spends hours and hours on the computer. He says he is talking to people, but when I pop in there he is always playing that online game..runescape. The pool (with two big slides) is a block away, however you must be 14, or go with someone 14 or older to get in. Many of his classmates go. So many are so big they are never questioned. difficult child is short and doesn't get in. It is close enough that he can come home if things don't work out. They make them get out of the water for 30 minutes every two hours. In between then I check, or husband or easy child, depends on who is home. He use to ride his bike a lot on trails and such. Doesn't do that anymore. (no one to ride with) Best friends parents got divorced and best friend moved away. (he spent all his time with him. It was really hard on difficult child) I am having panic attacks thinking of summer. Plays soccer which will be done by end of june. Plays baseball which will run through July. Hopefully he can hold it together for the sports. Pretty shakey lately.
