Wow, what a Day....

I started wondering to myself what the point is. Why do we do what we do? Do our kids ever get it? And if they aren't going to get it, why are we trying so hard? Reading about Cindy's grown kids I remember when she first started blogging and I would tell people that I read her blog because she had successful grown kids and it motivated me.

Since then more and more of her grown kids have been driving her nuts and I KNOW she's been a great parent who always holds high standards, is an excellent role model, and continually teaches and motivates. So I ask myself if it's worth it.

Today was one of those days where I started to ask myself why any of us bother -- any parents -- when it seems the kids are bound and determined to learn the hard way and will mess up anyway....

But I was very tired of the disorganization of bedrooms today so I declared that things would get cleaned today before anything electronic was turned on. I started by trying to dig Wilson and Dominyk out of their hole -- TOny's still isn't done!

The big boys room took hours..... And I was caught up on laundry until this brilliant room cleaning idea. SIgh.

And then I headed to take Salinda's boyfriend home, but his mom called and said to turn around because the roads were too bad.

And in the middle of it all, lots of techinical difficulties trying to set up one of John's Christmas gifts, and it never did get fixed so he could take it with him.

Tony's behavior of late has been so difficult and unbearable for me that sometimes I just don't know what to do.... I need to figure that out before he drives me insane.....
