Responsibility is a Pain in the Ass!!!

Responsibility is a Pain in the Ass!!!

Is a Pain in the Ass!

Responsibility is a pain in the ass!

Yes, it sure is.

Getting up, getting dressed, getting the kid(s) dressed, getting to work, doing the dishes, doing the laundry, keeping the house at least semi-presentable…it never ends.

And worse!, it increases!!!

On a nearly constant basis!

Just when you get your life to a good place, BAM, there comes a new glitch in the plans, or something new added to your workload, be it at the office or at home, it makes NO difference.

Believe me, whether you are a man or a woman, working from home or from the office, maybe, just MAYBE, you get an hour at the end of the day, or in the very early morning to actually converse with your spouse, or even sit down for that matter, and you can’t even enjoy THAT hour because you are so tired from the rest of the day!!!

It is truly insane.

The quote is common, though not as common as it was when I was a kid, “youth is wasted on the young”, and it is SOOOO true!

When we were kids we had no responsibilities at all, save to clean our rooms, take out the trash, shovel some snow, leaves, whatever, and yet we felt the weight of the WORLD on our shoulders!  And many people didn’t even have those responsibilities to worry about!  Go to school, oy, what a chore that was!!!

Yet today, and you know exactly what I’m gonna say, what you wouldn’t give to have sitting in a classroom, with a bunch of other people your age, making new friends and learning, be your ONLY responsibility?!?!?

Ah….Heaven, right?

Sure our school years were extremely challenging for most of us, those of us who were not part of  the “IN” crowd, or what have you, but today as adults? We have completely different skill sets, people skills, etc. I mean, it must be, for G-d sake, one of the most common quotes in the world; “If  I only knew then, what I know now…?”

And KIDS?

Forget about it!

Our children are without a doubt the most precious possessions that we have.

They quite nearly literally light up our lives, we love them more than anything else in the world; our spouses, and even ourselves,

AND,

we also want to kill them!!!

If we are lucky these feelings are somewhere around 50/50, but it varies consistently.

They drive us absolutely insane, NEVER shut up, won’t go away, give us no time alone together, AT ALL, and they are still absolutely our favorite toys to play with

:)
!

SO what to do?

Live, and love. A LOT!

Communicate as VERY often as you possibly can, with each other, and as a family, and laugh…

NEVER stop laughing!

It is a cure for oh so very many things!!!

Enjoy!
