Wait,.. is that Even Possible?
Monday was one of those really CRAPPY days!
Yes, I said 'CRAPPY'... it happens to be one of my favorite words, and it was the most appropriate descriptive word I could come up with.
Okay, so.... maybe it wasn't the whole day, but the evening... It totally fell apart.
I got into a spat with one of my sons, and I looking back I think that argument is what really precipitated the whole problem.
There is nothing like contention to suck the spirit out of your home. Ever since my husband died, I am just so much more acutely aware of that. If the spirit goes out, my emotional state goes with it.
Anyway, I won't go into who the spat with was with or what it was about because my children are very sensitive to be singled out on my blog. Needless to say it was all based on the misunderstanding that started with a comment that I made. I tried to smooth things over and apologize, but I got a typical teenage response.
You know...communication would be so much easier if my children were 40 like me! But unfortunately, I am working with pre-adult souls.
I've learned that communication with children/teens requires a LOT of extra patience.
(It's probably, why they come that way... so we can learn
