Wanda and I took a walk by the river this morning. It's 54 degrees, sunny, and get this: windless! Gotta love New Mexico. Five days ago we had 6 inches of snow, howling winds, and freezing temperatures. If ya don't like the weather, wait a few minutes.
Its the same way with teenage girls. We've had a high pressure front building for a few days that finally became a full-fledged storm last night. Ten minutes later it passed and there were blue skies again. The conclusion is that I need to nag less and she needs to show more responsibility.
There is something exhausting about constantly needing to re-set boundaries. That's relationships for you, though. Its always a new bone to chew on, or maybe its the same old tooth marked bone that's been buried and dug up again for the 100th time.
