Yes, Another Difficult Weekend



Got through the 3-day weekend with no new hole in the wall. Some talking but mostly arguing. Again. Didn't do nearly everything we needed to do. And, of course, **I** bought and wrapped Hubby's mom's b-day gift and made her breakfast muffins. And **I** still have 18 bales of hay to unload from the trailer. And xmas gifts to make and wrap. And dairy goats to register. And more therapy appointments to schedule. And the kitchen to clean. Laundry to do. Chicken pens to further insulate.

And seriously, does any husband on this earth clean up after himself?!?!?!

No surprise that Hubby's mom agrees with Hubby on how to raise my Kid, and that I really need to stop "correcting" how Hubby's "parenting" my Kid.

Hubby's been a "parent" to my kid for 3 1/2 years, and never before had any experience with kids. I've been my kid's parent for 14 years, and have been a nanny/babysitter/day care provider off and on for 30 years. I think I know that intimidating and ordering MY child to DO something absolutely positively will get the opposite of the desired effect. And how that we have the diagnosis of autism, I understand the WHY behind it.

Yup, I am soo glad this weekend is (practically) over. That this month and this entire year is almost over. I'm getting to my wit's end and can only bear so much more.

Ate a plate of brownies tonight, and 8 dinner rolls with butter during the day. A little bit of ham. No veggies. Just a bit of fruit with cereal this morning. Argh. Not so good.

Have a lot of baking to do this week for Christmas gifts (the only thing we can afford this year) but it's going to take a LOT of willpower to not eat everything I make!

I really hope I sleep tonight. It's been months since I've had a decent night of rest. Could really really use it.

Yes, with all you have going on, sleep would be a Very Good Thing. Take care of the caretaker first!
