Getting tired physically and mentally again

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

good morning - I have to really try hard to regain my upbeat spirit. I am not getting enough sleep. Had GD 3 - all day Saturday, Monday my other grandkids for 5 hours, and now today I will have the 3-year-old again- all day. I would manage through it and not complain. But grandpa is a grumpy old man, he is fussing. I say your son is moving today should be the last time for a while. I am not sure that is true. He is set in his ways and needs his space. I feel his grandkids add to his life. He agrees in moderation - like once a month. My son has moved within 10 minutes of us. He can b/c a problem. I have been through this b/4 with him. You set boundaries. Last night, for example, he wants to come over and get his weight set that we have had in our garage for 10 years. He wants to sell it. he texts at 8 pm that he is coming over and getting it. I txt back that he can get it when you drop off your daughter tomorrow. We are in bed now.
My Dh says that kid is going to b/c a problem. The problem is really DH. He has never wanted to discipline and he never backed me when I set the boundaries. So I told him that we have to learn (meaning you) to set boundaries and stick to them. Adult children can become a problem. You never want to hurt their feelings and then it mushrooms. I nip it in the bud. We have such limited time on this earth. I want peace in my life. I am praying for peace in our nation. Have a good day!! Life is a challenge but I can handle it. Peace! emoticon emoticon
