no rest

Here is sit with my first cup of coffee. I have so much to do today. I have 10 loads of laundry to fold. I have thought about leaving it because my mom loves to fold laundry. But since everyone has to jump over the laundry to get to some of the bed rooms I think I should go fold it.

I need to go clean up the kitchen. Ick.

Last night Rusty and I went back to the other house. We had to pick up a few remaining things. So I told Ryan to take everything that was on the kitchen counter and go put it in the trunk of my car.

That was when I noticed Ryan had on dirty sock.

Me: Ryan why are you wearing dirty socks?

Ryan: Because none of my socks are clean.

Me: are you suppose to wear dirty socks?

Ryan: no

Me: what are you suppose to do when your hamper is full?

Ryan: bring it out to be washed.

Me: then why haven't you done that?

Ryan: blank stare

Me: you use to have 20 pairs of socks, so why are you wearing dirty socks?

Ryan blank stare

Me: What did I say would happen if I caught you wearing dirty clothes again?

Ryan: I would get in trouble.

Me: You are grounded from play station and t.v. for a week.

I am not sure why I bother having these conversations with Ryan. We have had these conversations a million times. I am not sure why I bother disciplining him because he does not respond to it anyway.

I was so hoping that one day he might get it but I think I should just forget it.

Then I told Ryan to go get all of the stuff out of the trunk of the car and place everything on the dinning room table.

I walk into the kitchen and there stands Ryan putting everything on the counter.

Me: Ryan where did I say to put everything?

Ryan: on the table.

Me: well is this the table?

Ryan: no

Me: then take everything off the counter and go put it on the table!

Why do I bother? Will he ever be able to follow simple instruction?

Then I got a call from the place that Nikki will be traveling with. It turns out that Nikki will be leaving Friday instead of Saturday. What? I have to pick my mom up in San Diego on Friday. Nikki will be leaving from Orange County!

Some how some way I will figure all of this out.

I forgot to get Ambers car smogged. So I had to get a temp sticker for her car. I will add this to my long list of things to be done.

Well I better go pull something out of the freezer so I can cook dinner tonight. Then I will hit the ground running. I am on my second cup of coffee, so I should be good soon.

my mom used to like to fold clothes too; maybe one day I will also :)

keep trying with Ryan, one day it may sink in, don't give up, as frustrating as it is

if I still lived in Orange County, you could have dropped Nikki off at my place and I could have run her to the airport :(

hope you can get it all worked out, let me know if I can help in any way

I know it is frustrating for you. guess you just have to try to accept his limitations. He does do more then my brother-in-law did. He just rocked, watched TV, and drank coke but I guess that was because my mother-in-law spoiled him so much. Care about you Kelli, Paula

Somebody needs to clone you and let person #1 get some sleep and let person #2 do some of the work.  Geesh, I hope this all gets straightened out.

Your son sounds like my brother. I know how frustrating it can be. I live with my brother...he's 45yrs old and when I speak to him it has to be very clear, simple, and precise. Then, it has to be REPEATED over and over. UGH!
Take care sweetie...Pam xoxox

It is interesting how Ryan responds.  I do not see how you could ever work at a regular job because you have got a full time job at home.  Thank goodness Rusty recognizes this.  Maybe down the road aways but not while you are doing a thousand and one things for your family, but I feel they are well taken care of.  There is a lot of caring here.  Gerry

I can totally relate!:):)I've been told that the absent mindedness
come from hormones and that I do not deny!
But Kelli they say it takes sometimes until the kid is thirty to change! huh?
hey it's a nutty fruitcake world out there!
But keep up the good work! We don't want more fruit cakes than we have to have! lol!
