Yesterday ended up being a terrible day. I stayed positive all day, I don’t even mind that I made only one sale.
I woke up with a fever and feeling just terrible. I’ve had a cold with sore throat and upset stomach for over two weeks now. Yesterday was the worst. I still had to go out to the fair, so I took some tylenol and my fever broke before I had to go.
That isn’t even the worst of it. My 16 year old son ran away yesterday evening because we are “trying to control” him by making him get a job! It seems he IS too much like me and has to learn about life the hard way. Why can’t teenagers just realize that we parents know what we’re talking about….I’ve been there before for crying out loud! I so thought I could make it on my own at 16, only I had a baby to support too! I was worried at the beginning, but he called my youngest son and told him he was at a friends house. So, at least I know he’s not wandering the streets, which is a little scary to me living here in Albuquerque. Hopefully, he will show up at school today. My husband teaches at the high school that he goes to, so we will know right away if he skips school. I’ve always known that he would be the difficult teenager, he is the middle child after all. He has always been the most difficult of the three boys. I am getting close to the end of my rope with him! I guess I’ll just tie a knot and hang on tight! Luckily we went through a similar situation with my oldest son, so I know he will eventually come around and apologize for being such a pain. But at the moment, I just don’t know what to do! Anyway, keep some positive thoughts going for me!
