Am I the only mother in the world who has had her Christmas ruined by an ungrateful teenager? With just a comment or two? Who has worked all day and the kid brags he only got up 30 minutes before you got home from work? And you have spent your entire first paycheck on his Christmas presents? And there have been ZERO gifts, you know this for a fact, bought for you? Or made? Or even thought about? And you ruined his life because you made him do the ONE thing you asked him to do last Sunday? Which was just to SORT the dirty clothes that were in the bathroom, so YOU could wash them. And dry them. And fold them. And hang them up. And in reply to "Welcome to my world." he replies, "your world is gay and stupid". And when you inform him you worked all day he replies "I really don't care". I had to text Kaye, (who left me a comment that we have no life because we live next door to each other, read each others blog and leave comments, all while texting each other) because I was TOO MAD TO TALK. No jury, OF MY PEERS, in the whole wide world, would convict me. He better be glad the stores were closed because I wanted to take all his stuff back and spend the money on ME and my sweet, favoritest child, who went to work with me and worked all day long, slaving away with his dear mother because he loves her and wanted to be with her (I know he was just afraid he was missing something). But this is my rant so I can say what I want. But, as a mother, I was more responsible. When he got in the shower, I turned on the dishwasher to use up all the hot water. heh heh heh. He was mad because I was watching White Christmas and he wanted to play the Wii. Well, guess what? It is a movie marathon!!! On back to back to back. I am currently in my second viewing. Not to mention that the internet was down, and now I AM HOGGING THE COMPUTER so he can't get on and I plan on staying here a LONG LONG LONG time. I know that vengeance is mine, saith the Lord, but I think He will cut us some slack in some instances. I haven't committed murder, yet. Or justifiable homicide.
