Happy Thursday

Well, I have quite a bit to be thankful for (will post more later), but here are my 3 for today:

1. Payday is tomorrow and for the first time since starting this sorry ass job, all bills are paid AND I have money left!

2.  Another weekoff coming up soon.  Now that I look at the calendar, I probably should've done a better job of spacing out my time off but oh well.

3.  School is almost out for the boy...woo hoo!!

3. Another year with my mom and another year of being a mom.

Link up and share what you're thankful for.

Can mom go on strike...?

So, I'm the mother of an only child as most of you know.  I have to say, for the most part, he really is a good kid most of the time, but Houston...I think we have a problem.  I guess with him being an only child, it was easy for me to go overboard with taking care of him.  I mean it's not like I had 5 kids thank God to care for; just one.

I have realized lately though, that he is a bit lazy.  I don't make him do much shame on me and he only has a couple of chores. I ask him to empty the trash in his room and the bathroom and lately I have asked him to stop dropping his lunchbox on the couch.  My specific request for the lunchbox is take it to the kitchen and empty it out so it's ready for the next morning.

Well this morning I'm doing my usual routine and start fixing his lunch and...no lunchbox.  I have told him if the box isn't in the kitchen, he will get no lunch and have to eat whatever is at school.  This morning I say "I don't see a lunchbox" and he says he's getting it.  As he's bringing the lunchbox into the kitchen he says "sometimes you're selfish." 

Ruh Roh (in my best Scooby voice)....rewind and let's try that again.  I leaned in really close and said "what did you say?" Of course, his reply was "nothing." Anywhoo...fast forward to my question. Have I spoiled him? Do I do too much for him at 9? Should I back off and let him take on more responsibility? Do I already know the answers to all of those questions?

Chime in readers and tell me what you think.

Signed,

Mom about to go on strike

"Wow son, you smell good!"

This is what I said to the boy last night after his shower.  In the family room last night, this nice, familiar, soft scent kept sweeping across my nose but I really didn' t think much of it at first.  It wasn't until I went toward the bathroom and the scent got stronger that it hit me...Japanese Cherry Blossoms!


Yes, my son showered with my Bath & Body works shower gel...LOL! He has done this before with other shower gels but for some reason this time was just funny.  So...I figured I would come in here and write about it.  Maybe in 20 years when he's married, I'll share this story with his wife!

Quick random thoughts

Tonight, I will do my last assignments and take my last quiz until Fall term and I'm more excited than I imagined! I can not wait to come home from work on Sunday and not have assignments to finish or quizzes to take.  I really need this break because I have not had a good couple of semesters...my focus has been totally off.

I'm finally biting the bullet and going to find a counselor to start seeing.  I'm also seeing the doc in a couple of weeks and will be begging asking to go back on anti-depressants for awhile. It's time to get out of this fog.

That's all for now.
