I haven't spoken to Erin for two weeks now nor has she spoken to me. I had a huge wobbly with the whole family and she was earmarked by me as being the cause of most of it. I am not the slightest bit concerned, this was long overdue. I do feel that maybe 'mothering' is not my strength and I won't go to my grave saying I have no regrets. My home is infinitely more peaceful though especially now that she doesn't stomp off up the stairs when I walk into a room she is in, she does it on purpose because she knows it pushes lots of my buttons. Note to self: never buy a house with a wooden first floor!
So this means that my salary at the end of this month is for ME I don't have to share it with an ungrateful teen!
