The Boiling (Over) Point

Three people living in one house. All opinionated, all stressed to their individual limits. Remarks that any other day would go by without a second thought promote violent reactions. Leading to more comments that at no time could be ignored. War erupts. There is screaming, and crying, and storming off to neutral corners. And that miserable tense silence broken occasionally by one-syllable grunts.

A middle-aged woman and two teenagers. It was a rough, rough week. And while none of us is completely over everything today, we all will be.

Transitioning back to school is always rough.

This is why I work with teens and then send them back home. :) Hang in there!
