Where is everybody?
We had a nice home day today-- no gasoline use at all which is nice, because it seems like I am always in the car.
DS was a bit off for the first half of the day. He relapsed with three bad behavior days this week in school, and I had to get called on Thursday with a complete LIE, I mean a whole total fabrication about why he got sent to the office. So I took away his two very favorite things (Bey Blades and Wii) for the whole weekend, starting Thursday.
Well, Friday he was awesome in school, and he thought that would negate the 3 bad days and he'd get his beloved Bey Blades back. Or the Wii. Um, nope. NOTHING you can do will earn those back. No earning back anymore, because that means Mama was a wuss and didn't stick to her word. SO whoops, nope, sorry.
So today, he was pretty morose half the day. Then he got a wild hair and decided he had to have some new thing-- RIGHT NOW. He was trying to bribe me six ways from Sunday to take him to Walmart to buy this new thing that he's wanted so badly for a year that he couldn't remember what it was
He vacuumed, he did chores, he offered me $1.65 in gas money (you can tell he really understands the value of "gas is really high right now"...ha).
So I stood my ground and said no. Not leaving the house. He moped on the couch, very passive-aggressively obviously, for probably an hour, before he realized I wasn't paying any attention. Oh well!
He's good to go, now, finally.
I got some good cam time with M today
Oh hey-- we have a promising showing on Monday! Oh, mamas....if you have time and energy, please light candles and say prayers between 2-3pm EDT on Monday! This person has apparently driven by umpteen times, and finally asked for a showing of the inside. This could be The One! Oh cross fingers! Wouldn't that be so cool?
