Extra Stuff

That about sums up my day, my week, and my mood.

I was tempted to participate in TMI yesterday, but when I discovered that it was about regrets, I figured I best keep my thoughts to myself. My answers would have been too tainted.
So, regretfully, I had nothing else to post.

Because regretfully I was teaching daughter how to thoroughly clean cat shit off the carpet at 7:30 a.m. Why her? Well, because it's her cat. She had the nerve to be offended that I woke her up to do such a thing, claiming it was "gross and disgusting". I pointed out that perhaps the the cat shouldn't be shut out of the laundry room where the litter box is located. She grumbled and growled. I told her not to forget the Lysol.

And also regretfully because I was otherwise preoccupied attending traffic court for my juvie son. Apparently it's a big deal to drive 87 in a 65 zone. 30 days suspension, $100 fine, and he must attend a teen driving seminar which we have the honor of driving him to. He had the nerve to behave like a jerk all day. I had the nerve to make him pay his own fine and then I took his phone.

It's days like yesterday that make it all too clear why animals eat their young.

I LOVE that you woke her up to clean
I'm glad you took his phone
And I hope that you'll be docking $100 out of his birthday/Christmas/Kwanza budget for the next year.

Well done Mom!

The bleh will lift soon enough as you realize you are a fantastic human being. :-)

I think you're doing well just feeling 'blehhh', I'd be pulling my hair out! I don't think I'll ever have the patience for kids.

Keeping it down to blehhh shows amazing self control.
I hope everyone is extra nice to you today and at least the rest of the week, as it sounds like it is not a good time to further piss off Freya.

Going to try and send some good vibes your way.

Excellent parenting job!

Our kids are adults now, one has a step-son and has set up some of the same rules we had in our house.

A cardinal rule was that you never ever drive impaired or ride with someone who is impaired. Call us and we will come get you. There might be a lecture, but there will be no no punishment. But if you drive impaired or get in a vehicle with someone impaired the shit will hit the fan like never before!

Our son implemented that rule in his house and got a call from his step-son one night asking our son to go pick him up. Might have saved his step-son's life or future or the lives of others.

Stick to your guns!

Hugs and congrats,
