I'm re-entering cafemom

 Hello - I'm somewhat tired of FB, but am looking to still be connected.

I'll add more as I enter this site.   I live in a rural area and am protective of my privacy.  I enjoy being outside and truly detest this bitter cold.  I did bundle up yesterday (looked like Nanook of the North) and took the dogs for a walk to feed the livestock. 

I have teenagers and am enduring these years.  At times, they're lovely, wonderful, funny, entertaining, and a joy to be around.  As of this moment, both are testing boundaries and I'm frustrated to the nth degree.  I took water and froze the daughter's windows shut so she can't open her windows to sneak cigs, and as of next Monday, they're both going to ride the bus to school.  I feel like I give an inch and they run a mile.  Yes, I remember being a teenager, and no, I wasn't an angel.  It just feels like the extremes to which they are testing their boundaries and at a younger age, more dangerous, and the consequences for getting caught are much harsher than when I was a teenager.  Hence, the worry.  Most of the time, I approach things with humor. 

I am also unhappy in my job and within a few years, when they are in college, I will probably explore other options. 

As I enter my 40's, I am puzzling out what I truly want.

Thanks for reading!

I promise someday they will grow up to be fine people.  The teen years are very trying.  Mine are all grown and I'm so proud of the adults they have become.
