Are you all aware that YOUR world revolves around MY teenage son?

Posted by wendyn on 3/14/00 at 00:00 (017297)

Do any of you have teenagers?

I wondered if you know that this entire universe revolves around my child. The sun rises and sets for him alone. Since you don't even know him, I thought that you should know that we're all put on this earth just for him. Now we ALL know.

My husband is watching the hockey game upstairs. My teenage son is on the phone in front of our other TV (yaking for hours with some girl who he claims is not his new girlfriend). Therefore, I cannot use the phone OR the TV. It is snowing AGAIN and cold outside. It sucks to be me.

BUT - not entirely. My feet have still been not so bad lately. I would say that I am even having times where I am walking and you cannot tell that anything is really wrong. I still can't do much, and my feet may be better because I've been trapped inside so much due to our ridiculous weather. I go back for acupuncture on Thursday providing the roads aren't all messed up again like they were last week (which is why I missed acupuncture AGAIN).

I have to agree with what Alan keeps saying about elevating the feet. If I do this for even just a little while a day (half an hour or so) it seems to make a big difference.

Anyone looking to adopt a teenager that eats every 12 minutes, and is currently doing a great imitation of the store clerk from 'Simpsons' - just let me know.

I'm going to bed~

Count your blessings and I mean it.
I have pain in both feet for a year now and a 3 1/2 year old. I bet you can't beat that. ( by the way I am also working full-time and go to school during nights). Ha, ha.

I'm with you...I've also had pain in both heels for almost a year..
and I am chasing after 4 children under the age of 9. School, home-
work, softball,washing clothes,cleaning the house, etc..I could go
on and on. Yeap!! Sometimes...the crawling around just isn't my idea
of a good time. You know you have PF when you really consider this.
Even my 3 yr old..says daily..'mommy...you feets hurt?' Hang in there.
I can't imagine them as teenagers. The girls are already 'Way too
moody'.The arguing begins early..doesn't it? Don't feel like I have
room to complain..poor Salina...she's chasing after 5. Have a good
day all! Stephanie

This is my theme song to all teenagers

OH lord, it's hard to be humble,
when I'm perfect in every way,
I look at myself in the mirror,
and get better looking every day.
To know me is to love me,
I just can't stand myself,
Oh lord, it's hard to be humble,
When I'm perfect, eternal every day!

LOL

No thanks on the adoption--got two of my own. On the other hand it is occasionally useful to have them around; you never know when you are going to need to consult someone who knows absolutely everything.
