So right, this is all life skills. Glad you could get away, even tho you got some acting out after.

Dear 16 year old, it is the height of stupidity to blame me for you leaving your turtle out on a night you are out.

16 seems to me the prime age for acting out. She took my scissors and ruler and left them on the living room floor and growled at me when I told her to put them away.

oh don't tell me this, i might have to just lay in bed and cry for the next however many years that this behavior is going to continue.

i'm afraid today is going to be a bad day. last night we had a bad skype with Mr T where he essentially said he doesn't want us to come back. (i am pretty sure he is full of shiitake and just venting but FC was there to hear it and was very upset). also family dramaz here have gotten a bit more icky (drama person now has FC's ear and is feeding her lots of BS about how bad I am, which if i know the pattern will lead up to a big showdown and accusing FC of betraying her). I am taking her kayaking today to burn off some of her upset and get her away from dramaz.

Sorry you guys are going through rough patches, kfad and torque.

I am knocking on wood and enjoying the calm patch of summer before school starts and shiitake eventually hits the fan. (aug 20th, not looking forward to you!)

Oh torque, I am so sorry.

I will be totally honest and tell you that one of the reasons I am not longer in communication with my sister is that she was telling my kids I was the worst. That and the teasing of me in front of the kids.

Anyway, you know I am here to be an ear for you... you can message me.

So glad kayaking went well! I really would like to come to for the Animals, but Leela isn't allowed sadly.

If you're up for it, Hackensack Riverkeeper does an incredible Full Moon Paddle (Tuesday, August 20, 7 PM - Full Moon / Incoming Tide) http://www.hackensackriverkeeper.org/canoeproject.html I can't wait for L to be old enough to go with me. Its unbelievable.

someone else told me it was awesome and i'd love to go. sadly, we have no transportation and even borrowing a car now seems to be the end of the frigging world, so i don't see us going anywhere for a while....

Oh man! The girls are always stealing my shoes.

So... Doug is collecting boxes. He has taken us on a roller coaster this week. Moving to Seattle, not moving to Seattle. He even had a job, but in a responsible move decided he needed to save some money before he goes up. Today he is looking for places in town.

Today is the day I realize that summer reading & project probably won't be done before school starts, if he is in possession of his phone. (so he's not)

I am not ready for high school.

Can we be done with 16 already? She comes home after a night out, screeches she doesn't have clean clothes and then disrupts the house with the attitude.

This is the third time something similar has happened this week.

i told the kid that if she needed something for school, it had to be purchased TODAY since I had access to a car today.
Aside from the car issues, between now and school I really don't know when I will have another free day. So it is today, and nothing else. Despite the pressure, we actually managed to purchase a backpack, sneakers, various clothes, running gear, and erm, spent two hours in JoAnn fabrics (as well as a disgusting sum) on silliness. I cannot BELIEVE it. Two tantrums (sneakers and backpack) were overcome and we got the job done.

[i suppose that means i am just about due for a total meltdown right about now, amirite??]

I really wish we could figure out a way that I could help you with your car situation! It sucks not having a car in NJ!

thanks guys, one day at a time. who knew about how hard this car thing would be. and how FRIGGING FAR AWAY everything is!!
we're mostly waiting for my sister to get her work schedule figured out (she is starting to work and in the process of interviews etc) and then it may get easier. but once school starts it won't matter much anyway.

Some how this week the kids (all three) have taken most of my dishes and left them in their rooms. Shorty literally needed three trips to bring out all her dishes. I am caring for a friend and don't have the time or the patience for this.

poor FC. we found a teen anime/manga/cosplay meetup at the neighboring town's library today (god bless the library system), and she is so looking forward to it. like REALLY looking forward to it.
and she now just almost vomited during breakfast. i told her to go take a shower and have some Eno. i hope she feels better. If she misses it she'll be so miserable.

things here have been so stressful and yet she is doing so well with the situation. she is graceful and avoids conflict (which is practically impossible here, I don't know how she does it) and i really can't say enough about how proud i am of her, regardless of what her grades have been. [she knows, i do tell her once in a while when she's not getting in my face. and i just bought her another wig.]
