    Default Why is everything my FAULT?

    ARGH! EVERY single thing that goes "wrong" in this house is my fault!

    DC has a virtual class this morning that they have been begging to take for almost a year. Now they are upset because they have to do this on a Saturday morning (the first class is not going to be fun)! The technology wasn't working so DH is mad because he had to stop everything to fix an wireless issue he has known about for 12 months (I though it had been fixed last year). AND DH wanted to take DC out for lunch, but the class is going to make it a very LATE lunch. They are both now mad at ME!

    Mom life. It sucks. Maybe when everyone has a chance to cool down you could have a family mtg about how everyone could have done something differently to make it a smoother day.

    PREACH!!! What kills me is how pissed off they get when they are "inconvenienced". Seriously???????? Do you know that I am inconvenienced on a regular basis?? It is my life. If I got pissed off by that, you all would never have registered for school, camps, sports, etc. nada. Truly amazing.

    Gah! I relate to this so hard!
    I'm helping DS pack for sleepaway camp and every time he gets annoyed, I ask - "So should we forget about camp then? Because I don't feel like doing this either and I'm not even going to camp." Everyone in the house thinks I'm being mean, but sheesh, all the bitching and moaning I get for helping do things FOR THEM!!!
    Sorry everyone's dumping on you, OP. I hope you get an escape to your happy place (real or imaginary) soon.

    YES! I feel this sooooo much! It just makes me want to actually stop doing things if I just get complaints no matter what. (Actually, I did kind of do that to my DD1 for a month last year after an especially bad spell.....nothing terrible, but things like I made her take the bus instead of picking her up from school......her increased gratitude lasted for quite awhile after that!)
