If I had $1 for every time I say those words in a day, it would easily bring in about $20, daily.
I am so over everything. Everything. And I can’t just blame the freaking pandemic, even though that’s a big part of it.
My children don’t seem to think they have to listen to me anymore. Like at all. This was my youngest daughter’s first day back to school in 4 weeks. Back to back quarantines.
And you’d think she had forgotten who the hell I was in the 7 hours she was away from me today. I had to keep repeating myself, stop talking, lose my temper, etc.
I finally looked at her and said, “Hi. I don’t think we’ve met. I’m your mother…” Nothing.
And the oldest, oh my goodness. She’s got college applications to finish, she’s got homework in concurrent college classes she’s taking in high school that is due tomorrow, Senior Panel pictures to order, and on and on….
What does she do after getting home 1 hour late from school after taking another ACT test? She sits on her butt and starts watching a movie with her sister. Yes, I give her credit for that, but come on….
I swear to God I must have had a terrible fear of my mother. I was told once to do something, and if I wasn’t up and doing it in the time it took her to look at me, I was getting something flung at me.
And if I dared to talk back, or say “No” to my mother, I got slapped. Hard. If I was warned that I was losing a privilege, back then it was going to friends or TV really, but I took it seriously and did what was asked.
I can’t take it with these two. I’m done. Then their dad sits there and waits until I have lost my shit, to tell me what he’s going to do next time…. do you know how often he carries out such threats?? Hardly ever.
So I’m done. I quit. I give up. I’m out. Ughhhhh!!! 🤦♀️🤷♀️
