Yep, I did go to the dr.!and yep, antibiotics were given.

oh, I'm so glad to hear, pdswife.............I think that bladder infections are the worst along with other maladies....they disrupt your whole life and the pain and urgency everytime you hit the bathroom is just unrelenting........years ago I knew that I had the beginnings of one and actually went and had a urine test ........negative........a few days later after being on my feet all day from running after first graders I come home and am running to the bathroom every 10 minutes.......by the time the doctor sees me that long night of pure pain and misery at 9pm the nurse asks for a urine sample......I hand her back a cup of blood........even the professional that she was.....raised her eyes in amazement........it turned out to be hemorrhagic cystis where you are literally sloughing off the lining of your bladder......the Dr. gave me some antibiotics and a wonderful medicine for the pain (stronger than AZO) and it's not like I really put this off......yep, glad to hear that you're on antibiotics and hopefully you're feeling better :)

Pdswife,
Hope you're feeling better from that infection. Did you get antibiotics?

DH and I have had a very rough day. I'm at my last nerve and at the verge of crying from so much stress. DH and I simply need some time to relax without our boys. Sorry to say that but our daughter doesn't give us ANY grief ~ thank God. The boys have to be told over and over to clean up after themselves. On top of it all, our 14 year old lost his phone charger, misplaced his iPod shuffle, and decided to take my daughter's iPod today and broke it. We made him pay her whatever allowance he had on him ($9). So now he owes her $191 more for the iPod. In addition, he has to work (mowing the lawn) to earn enough to get another phone charger. That's going to take him a little over 6 months...argh! It hurts to punish them and be after him all the time but we're so fed up with his irresponsibility. Our little one also broke the computer from our stationary bike. Great! What next?! I'm so stress and tired.

Dina, your 14 year is going thru a normal phase..........it may actually end in about 2 years...........you're lucky it's NOT your daughter..........girls are the ones who give their parents the big headaches during 13-16 in my opinion...........your son will be "normal" again when he reaches his 20's.........try and not compare him to his sister, however, if you can have a relative watch them for the weekend and you and DH get away even if it's to a hotel downtown........I did so much crying and pulling out hair over my two and now you'd never know that they were the same kids.......I've had the same reports from others.......teen years ARE stressful......they are full of horrormones and their brains are on the back burner....hence why your son is probably losing everything he can gets his hands on...of course continue making him be responsible........I hope that you and DH can get away..........

I forgot that my stones can't go in a 400 degree oven and I broke my favorite and most used 15" stone baking a peach and blueberry galette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I NEVER bake - I was so proud of myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dina,
I was lucky with my kids,they had the normal problems, girls, boys,new cloths, but thank god no I'pods or any of that junk.. Don't get upset, but what the heck do they need those for? So they can yak to friends? Texting? If it were me, I'd collect all of them and that would be it.. They don't need to be constantly on a phone..And as to breaking things, they need to ask before they use things and then it's for a short time and only within limits...If they want these things, then they work for them and there are limmits here too..You don't need to work yourself to death to provide these things and then be treated this way..They need to straighten up NOW . I now that old song but Mom everybody has one. Baloney, my dad would have said, you don't so not everyone has one!!! You've provided so much for them now you are a wreck because they just don't care about things, mom will get us a new one, well surprise kids the gravy train has ended, now YOU pay and get those goodies and then maybe you will take care of them and begin to respect what we mom and dad have done for you..
Get a couple of days Dina, then lower the boom on them

my vent is nothing earth-shattering just annoying.........3 weeks ago the landlady contacts me and wants to send a relative over to collect the curtains to clean them.......ok radar antennae go up.....is she going to sell this place????? Also sends 24 year old daughter to take pictures of the apt. for insurance purposes.........sorry antennae is still up.........so they take the curtains but I do throw myself in front of the silk ones in the living room, bedroom, and office.......I absolutely refuse to let them take those..........silk needs special attention........ok, a week later they come back and I'm at the computer and I decide after an hour to have a look-see......OMG!!! You couldn't even see thru the sheers they were so wrinkled....I think that they washed them and just bundled them up into bags...........they were awful to look at............since I didn't speak Russian I called up my husband's secretary to explain to her what was going on and then she talked to the relative.......even he admitted to her that they looked bad but he had already called the landlady and she was coming over in 30 minutes................great......then she'd see for herself..........well, she never showed up.....relative leaves because all the sheers look bad.......and then another week goes by..........Nada.............then we have to leave for a week.........I told my DH......I'm not worried..........once Ludmilla (she helps to keep my apt. clean and works for the landlady the other 4 days) sees them she'll handle it..........sure enough we come home and the sheers are gone.......I saw Ludmilla yesterday and we both were able to understand each other about the curtains...........that's exactly what happened.... she called the landlady and told her how bad they looked...now when do they come back???? Who knows..........I'm not worrying about it......didn't want them to go in the first place...........but I'm not the owner.........

Thanks expatty and Kades. I grew up not having anything when I was a kid and that taught me to value everything we have now. We do follow through with consequences when the kids are not responsible ~ and I DON'T budge! Dad is a bit softer on them and I hate it. I usually have to put DH in line when he starts to soften up. lol We usually agree on the punishments thankfully. I know most kids now-a-days have and WANT everything but most of their high tech stuff has been bought with their allowance and birthday $$. Our teaching to them is if they really want something that is not necessary, they darn better work for it.

I am glad to say that today has been a wonderful day. The kids have had a taste of my irritability, disappointment and consequences. Oh and better yet, the darn iPod worked. Argh!!! My daughter let the battery run out then recharged it and IT WORKED! Justin can at least earn enough money to get another charger for the phone, if he really wants to use his cell phone again. Justin made a very nice breakfast for everyone this morning and has been very calm and helpful with our little one. No bickering around today! Thank you Lord! I called the soccer association to inquire about him working on Saturdays as a referee and I may have found him a job. The owner asked me to bring him in soon to get him signed up to begin working in September. He's so excited about it!
