  • I should be in bed already - I have to wake up early and go work out with my trainer and then make our Thanksgiving Feast.
  • I should be practicing my guitar instead of playing on the computer.
  • I should have cleaned my house instead of watching Biggest Loser all night.
  • I should have gotten my lazy ass on the treadmill tonight.
  • I should have had more of a heart to heart with my son this morning when he was throwing what I felt was an unreasonable fit.
  • I should have chosen to have oranges instead of my husbands pumpkin pie tonight (although - it was diet pie and really not terribly bad..)
  • I should be done with my Christmas shopping like 99% of everyone - instead I haven't even started.

I have a lot of should haves... But, really, I don't care tonight... As I type the above words - the only one that truly concerns me is not sitting down with Bubba trying to figure out what the heck is going on with him. He has been freaking out the last few days - screaming, crying, throwing things - but it lasts for like 3 mins and it's totally over. It's like he's a hormonal pre-teen girl... Earlier, I was thinking he has just been tired - but he's been going to bed at a normal time and sleeping in (as late as he ever does.) But, now as I sit here at 11pm - I realize that something has to be going on... I'm not sure what it is... I know that his rage is very directly pointed at his dad and his sister... But, I don't really understand why yet. I think I should probably get to the bottom of it.

I'm not sure how old Bubba is, but I do remember all 3 of my brothers going through a similar thing around age 13. It seemed to be related to hormones. One brother's rage was triggered by girls another by frustration with a teacher at school. I was out of the house when the youngest went through it, so I'm not sure what his trigger was, but his personality changed completely. I hope you are able to figure it out!
