I have been watching a show lately called “World’s Strictest parents” where rebellions teens are sent to live with strict parents. This show made me realize that I have good kids. I don’t necessarily think of myself as a strict parent but I think I have done a lot to install basic values in my children. Unlike most of the teens on this show, my kids don’t drink, smoke, do drugs, sneak out or dress immodestly. Even though they each have different issues that I sometimes worry about, they are basically good kids.
Today I got up early and went to clean house for a neighbor. This is something my daughter usually does to earn money but she was busy with marching band tour so she asked me to do it for her. It was a good 2 1/2 hour job, and I didn’t do as much as Gracie usually does either. Late my husband and I went to the Temple to do an endowment session. I was super tired but I was glad I went.
I start school in two days and I am really quite worried about it. I have been feeling a ton of anxiety since I decided to go to school and work full time at the same time. I worry about leaving my kids and I worry that I won’t do well and that I will be so tired. I just ran out of my ant-depressant meds and don’t have the money to refill them so I am worried about that as well.
