in our family we don't separate the step from the real kids, that's how i was raised. 6 yrs ago i met my husband , he has three kids ranging in age from 22,21 and 13 and i have a 10 yr old, now prior to us meeting his ex wife was killed in a car accident when the youngest was going on 5 yrs old and i have been the mother in his life ever since. I love this boy not much different then my own but at times blood is thicker then water and i know that that may sound bad but you don't know me or what i am exactly talking about, as of late he was working a summer job for my parents working on the farm, moving pipe etc... he got fired because he was being slow and stupid, and costing my parents alot of money,it ended up being just a work thing but it to me put a hamper on the relationship thing, i mean i try not to be in the middle but that is my parents and that is my son. im so mad at him right now it's like he got fired he cried blah blah blah same story and yet that day he came home it's like he doesn't even care what he did ?? how am i supposed to respond to that?? it was sheer stupidity on his part.... i just want to take him in the wood shed and spank him a good one ya know...it's not like it was when we were growing up... but still, he get's away with so much B.S. and it drives me insane.....any suggestions would be so grateful i know they say don' sweat the small stuff but if i don't find way's to deal with this it's gonna drive a serious wedge in our family so if you have any ideas please share them with me :) thanks

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
