Not a Good Weekend
So, my DH's 2 boys visit every other weekend. I work hard to plan activities for all to enjoy. But this weekend I have made up the excuse that I need to go to the office to get extra work done, just to avoid them all. I hate to admit it, but its true. They are nearly 18 and 16, and are terribly immature, and clueless about the real world. Lazy is an understatement. So, their MIDTERM exams are tomorrow. Guess what? They FORGOT their books to study for the tests (train to us is 4 hours....would seem they could have used that time to study) So, the senior who supposedly wants to go to college FORGOT his study materials for these VERY IMPORTANT midterms tomorrow? He admits it will likely cause his grades to drop. Their train home has been cancelled because of a blizzard, and they are not "stuck" without any school books, and might even not make it to the tests if the roads arent cleared. What absolutely is driving me CRAZY is that they dont care. I suggested going to a local library, or asking a classmate to fax or email them notes, and their eyes literally glaze over when I say it.
I am going to say it here because I cant do it anywhere else: I DONT EVEN WANT TO BE AROUND THEM. They arent even the least bit intersting to me. They dont care about their future or want to do anything. They have no plans, ambition, or interest in trying new things. They are boring as heck, and zone out. My DH actually thinks they are "typical". They get everything handed to them and there are no consequences whatsoever for their behavior.
OK, so I am sitting here freezing in my office typing this because I just cannot sit at home anymore and watch them do nothing. My lack of respect is intensifying. DH doesnt seem to think anything is wrong.
So, why do I care? I guess I shouldnt. But I dont even enjoy cooking for them anymore. I resent lifting a finger for such indolence.
SOrry for the rant on a Sunday.....
