Tidbit Thursday

Just another unedited/sloppy installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

The rains keep coming down and the weeds keep coming up. Hubby has been helping to weed the perimeter of the property but this is getting to be ridiculous. It is a never ending job and I’m beginning to think it just isn’t worth it.

Tomorrow is the last day of school – not really ready for it but it will be here whether I’m ready or not. Right now he is signed up for two weeks of away from home camp, one week of day camp and one week of half day camp. Not sure how we’re going to fill in the rest of the summer but hopefully we’ll find something that will work for us.

Another situation with the girl has come up and I’m really concerned about  the possible outcomes but I don’t have any control over them. I gave her some advice but I don’t think she will take it. She is not in  a good situation but I can’t seem to get her to see that. She is so focused on not coming back home that she continues to make poor decisions that just lead to a bigger hole to try and dig herself out of. I wish she would let me help her but she wants to prove she is mature enough to handle her own problems. She never could accept that it is okay to ask for help and I suppose that is something she learned from me because I have trouble asking for help myself. Although I at least, will take it when it is offered. Anyone have any insight on how to get your teen to be receptive to your advice/wisdom/help??

Need to get ready for the boy to get home – until next time – have a great day wherever you are.
