A bit bummed /don’t have teenagers

I sold my best and favorite kayak. I had two. One fits in my car and I can carry it alone if I have to and the one I sold not so much. It was a great kayak though. It was like butter on the water. I will miss it but …..

downsizing is downsizing and storing it is just not what I wanted to do either. If I had a man in my life maybe it could have stayed. But single mom life is hard enough without cumbersome projects that involve a lot of brute strength; like toting around 12 foot kayaks.

I think the day I replace that kayak will be a day I might cry. Because I have expectations that my life will be different, easier, better and with a great partner. But……

until then I don’t want to give it another.


I love being a mom. I love my kids endlessly, fervently, with my entire being. And I can not recommend the experience of having kids enough, but whatever you do, don’t have teenagers. Lol


I’m just super frustrated with mine right now. All things considered she is an angel; sweet, conscientious, good grades, no drugs or alcohol, great friends, responsible……

but the attitude and lack of respect, follow through and the entitlement sometimes. OMG.

She acts like I stuff her in a closet and only take her out for chores. Like she doesn’t have tons of privileges and isn’t given as many opportunities as I can possibly give her.

I try not to lose my cool and snap at her, but some days that’s a challenge.

Well …it’s started to drizzle on my garage sale. Guess I should eat something at some point here today.

Hope you’re all having a splendid day.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

  1. ah yes teenagers i have 3 daughters and those teen age years is what gave me white hair. They are all grown now and doing well so its worth struggling thru the frustration. The key is remembering what you wrote about her “she is an angel; sweet, conscientious, good grades, no drugs or alcohol, great friends, responsible……”
    it’s a shame that our world is teaching her to feel entitled and with that comes the attitude and lack of respect. So hang in there and know She is a sweet angel that gets miss guided by the world. keep her on track. Eat and rest well. your a good Mom

    1. I agree. Completely. Thanks. It was nice having it while I did. It was never something I knew I’d enjoy as much as I did. And I still have one. Smaller, not as smooth, but it is manageable and it will still get me in the water. So hey. What is there to complain about.

      I do have food and a good roof and health and a kind spirit. And that is so much more than some people have, so everything else is just the icing on top really.
