This weekend I just crashed. I had zero emotional energy. Maybe it's because my week was hard. I won't go into details about work, though there were some things that happened in that context, but life at home has been difficult.
First, I had to figure out what to do with Tony who got kicked out of job corps. I can't even go into details here, but the combination of Job Corps doing EXACTLY the opposite of what I begged them to do, Tony is in Minnesota temporarily living with Rand and Jimmy. I have some awesome friends that are trying to help me figure this out, but meanwhile there is a lot of stress for me.
In the process of deciding that he could not come home, I asked the other children who live here and they all voted no because of the stress he causes the family system. They are not wrong, but it seems that since then they have gotten worse in regards to helping around the house. Bart and I are in physical pain (though Bart's is decreasing by the day) but the kids here seem to be helping with housework less than they ever have. They all managed to sleep through church yesterday. It's discouraging.
Salinda did not get the job she applied for so she has been fairly depressed and the situation with Tony had Bart very discouraged for a few days.
We also have some very good friends going through a very hard time right now and I have been trying to support them in my own weird ways.
So this is a week I don't ever want to repeat, but I figured for those of you who check for a summary you should get one.
There's your summary. :-)
