Freud would have a field day with me...
I'm sending my kid to a shrink.
He's 16 years old and he's decided he doesn't HAVE to go to school anymore legally. So he sleeps all day and plays his guitar all night. Nothing I say or do seems to be fixing the sitch so I'm praying that this head shrinker can help!
Anyone else out there have issues with their boys at this age? DAMN! he's wearing this bitch out! I try to be understanding, but the kid thinks he's going to be a rock star. Seriously. He figures he doesn't need an education. But he has graciously agreed to get his GED. Wow.
His new therapist gave me a homework assignment. Write my son's life story. But he wanted it in 3 to 4 pages. I couldn't shrink it any smaller than 6. I even kept cutting things out, but there are things he needs to know. He wants a good picture of my son so I tried to give it to him. But, in order to give a good picture he needs to know the background of some things. The preface, if you will. I also have to get his records from his previous therapist & psychiatrist. Haven't had a chance to do that yet so he might get slightly peeved at a bitch for not being able to follow through completely!
All I can say is that I can't wait for Friday. Me and D are heading to West Palm Beach for an extended weekend getaway! This is much needed, believe me! I have been working my fat ass off (wish that it really worked to remove fat from my huge bootie!) and my weekends are busy as Hell doing everything I don't get done during the week so I'm fried like a egg! I'm SOOO looking forward to rest. I need it, deserve it, crave it, desire it. I won't get another break until probably late spring or summer of next year. As it is, I'm not even taking a week off, just a Friday & Monday around a weekend so I don't miss too much. I guarantee that even while I'm on vacation I will be getting phone calls and emails from work needing my assistance. It sucks to be the one to make everything happen. You never get a break.
Strange how my job seems to be 24/7. I thought only motherhood was supposed to be that way. Maybe I'm the one who should be in therapy!!!
