I'm feeling a little single-parentish at the moment. I need my husband here soon. But not having to cook a gourmet feast is good. Kids will eat leftovers without having a life crisis.
My children are NOT LISTENING. So I yell at them, with the result that they continue to not listen. What to do? I need the equivalent of star charts, for adolescents. It's just a phase, I know.
Yesterday, Sam got himself BANNED FOR LIFE from computer games for being rude. So I can't use the 'be good and you can have computer time' thing, which usually works. Drat.
Maybe Feng Shui will help? I borrowed a book at the library that claims ALL my problems will be solved, if only I would move that potted plant over there, and tie my suncatcher crystals with red hemp string instead of fishing line. I am all over it like froth on mauby. I'll let you know if it works.
