I was in a great mood today...until I picked up the kids from school.

Let me tell you, fighting with a 10-year-old girl over nonsense makes me grouchy.

The newest phase of life I'm in, which I'll entitle "Hormones," is quite trying.  I don't remember 10 being such a hard age.  I guess 10 is the new 12.  And 12 sucks.

When my patience is gone, I tell her to get away from me, that she's acting crazy again.  I don't know that it's the most effective manner of parenting, but it's where I'm at.

My son has become quite a video game addict.  Our newest rule is that he can only play on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  I'm forcing him to explore other interests.

Today we spent 30 minutes or so at the park.  I wish it would just get warm already so we could spend way more time outside.

Now that we live in a place with zero yard, the park will be my respite.

Life is good, a bit challenging...but that keeps things interesting.

Happy Thursday!
