I'm having a terrible attack of mommy guilt. I just returned from out of town so I'm sure that's part of the reason. My parents watched the kids last night and took them to school this morning. The middle one didn't have anything decent to wear. My mother went out and bought him a bunch of clothes. I just took him school shopping a month ago. He doesn't have a lot of clothes but enough (I thought). The problem is that they end up in a pile behind his dresser instead of in the laundry. He's 14. I think that's old enough to properly put away your dirty laundry. I feel like a terrible mother. Maybe I should have bought him more clothes. Shouldn't I be checking to make sure they all have clean school clothes? I certainly should make him clean his room. This is really getting to me. It doesn't help that DH has been complaining lately about the house being dirty. Bad mommy points there also. *sighs* I should be teaching the children how to clean the house and making them pick up after themselves. I'm just so tired when I get home. Dinner and homework are all I can manage and dinner is often take out. DH works Mon-Thurs nights btw so I am here by myself.

My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
