Another Emotional Blog
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I realize that I mostly blog about my emotions and family relationships. The reason is that I've finally figure out I need to process my emotions instead of stuffing them down with food. I hope you understand.
Anyway, things have been going pretty well. Son is doing chores, his girlfriend got a part-time job. Son is probably going to need sinus surgery (we find out Friday) so we are holding off on pushing the job situation with him for the moment).
This week has been super stressful for me because son's girlfriend doesn't drive yet (she is 18). So son and I have had to drive her back and forth to her job. Also, she is up in the mornings now when I usually have the house to myself to get ready for work, etc. And when I get home at night she is so excited to talk about her day that I don't get to relax. None of this is a big deal - I mean I'm trying to be there for her. I guess it's just that I'm having a hard time adjusting to all the changes that it's making me anxious.
So the girlfriend made an appointment for today to take her driving test, with one of our cars (with permission). The only problem was that our rear window defogger doesn't work right and it's been raining since last night. Plus, I was going to have to take her since son bailed at the last minute and it is in another town. So I warned her yesterday she might not be able to do it and she said she understood and we would play it by ear. This morning she tried to talk me into it anyway and argued with me about weather, it's effects on the car, etc. Finally, I just said "I don't know." She said she would cancel the appointment, but now it looks like my son is taking her.
I guess this is a good thing because I don't have to take her, but I'm pretty sure they are both made at me and it doesn't feel like a good thing.
Am I being selfish?
