Ok so I probably could have started a new thread. But I think this one is becoming a diary or something for me.

Anyway, today is a different day and I have really struggling in my family relationships. Each time I try to begin a conversation, it fails. Or perhaps I'm failing. I'll try to explain, but bear with me.

I came home from work excited about sharing new ways of dealing with my son's stress and disrespect. Advice came from a respected source. Anyway, when I came home. I tried to explain this to husb... The timing must of have been off, I don't even know what came up or happened. He was preoccupied and my daughter was near. I chose to talk to him about it privately. Then everyone got hungry and I was making dinner before I knew it. My son was in his room doing something and didn't bother to answer when called. Dinner was ready in a flash, we ate, son left the table and wanted to jump in the water before leaving for a class he was attending. I mentioned I wanted to talk to him and told him that if it wasn't a good time, I rather have all of his attention. He chose to talk later. He came home from his class and went for a quick run. I mentioned to him again that I wanted to speak to him. He basically ignored my statements and when finally come up from his room was very "inconvenienced" I simply reminded him that I wanted to chat, would tomorrow be better as his tone, etc. was not good. Again, bad timing I agree. Anyway, so that got put off. My conversation with my husb never happened. He just ignores or will say that he didn't remember (an all occasion statement).

So what's the problem?

I'm frustrated and ticked! This kind of thing is cyclic in our home. The conversations saved for another time. Simply doesn't happen. I feel as though I would literally be nagging at both son and husb to share. I really don't want to do that - I know from past experience this is what happens. I feel this info. is great insight and a real blessing for us all. So you may ask why worry? If I don't revert to the same old strategies, here we go again! Same old crap - new day.

I so give up on sharing ANYTHING! I'm just ssooooooooooo SICK OF IT.

So that's my day. I hope if someone reads this, you share.

Well, a new thread would have been a better way to go. But my diary continues..........
