Teenager's are Scary Part 3
I'm just hoping I make it through these next four years sane. I'd say right now, I'm on the fence tettering between the two, probably leaning toward insane.

My 15 yr old decided to take a toy gun to the football game on Friday night. Yeah, he did.

I'm grabbing my chest saying "It's the big one Elizabeth, I'm coming".

He went to a party before the game and made it there while it was half-time. The field is down this big hill just out of downtown Akron. They parked behind the stadium which is not well lit at all. I would never park there after dark. It's a rough part of town. Well his friends jumped the fence and he kept walking to go to the ticket office. They ususally don't have to pay after half-time. As he was walking by the fence, a cop saw he had the "gun" in his back pocket. The cop then proceeded to pull his gun, point it at my son, and told him to turn around with his hands up. The cop was BEHIND my son. That not being the point, but it still pisses me off, my son tells him it's a toy. Cop takes gun, calls me and is very nasty. Tells me to be there in 20 min and hangs up. I call his dad and tell him to go get him because I had a couple of Bud Lights and didn't want to drive. Make a bad situation even worse if ya know whatta I mean. So white trash, I felt.

Anyway, STUPID STUPID STUPID. Let's say it together shall we, S.T.U.P.I.D.

What's the typical answer when you ask a teenager a question - "I don't know". Yeah, he said it.

OMG OMG OMG, he could dead right now. Unbelieveable. Unbelieveable. Unbelieveable.

Yeah, he's grounded. F'in teenager.

Meet my new virtual pet Freebe on the sidebar. I saw Mean Girl had one and well, I wanted one too. Give him a treat!

My son's back at school today feeling much better. The car is running, thank goodness.

The popups were from cool counters I believe, so I nixed it.

Definintion of the day: Dad gum it! What you say instead of cussing or if you are part hillbilly. Use in a sentence - Dad gum it boys, pick up your shoes out of the middle of the floor. You may also substitute Dad burn it!, they are interchangeable.

The Big Thing
When I was a child I experienced "The Big Thing" many times.

Have you ever had such a high fever that things seem really really big and then it scares you?

My son has a sinus infection and bronchitis. Yesterday his fever was 102.1 F. This morning he wakes me up at 4:22 am and tells me he has "The Big Thing" and he's scared. When you have this feeling, any movement around you makes you very afraid.

The poor guy. I gave him his medicine last evening around 6:00 pm and he didn't wake up until he woke me up, so the medicine had worn off. So I redrugged him, gave him some water and he's back in bed. And I'm at work. No matter how old your kids get, you want to be there with them when they are sick, especially if "The Big Thing" is lurking.

Oh no, no, that's not all the bad news. We have more, oh yes.

My former husband borrowed my Jeep this weekend because his was in the shop. Saturday night he called about 7:30 and said the car won't start. So we went up there and jumped it. So it's either the altenator, battery or some other shit. D jumped me so I could get to work yesterday and I had two of the guys I work with take a look and low and behold, thank god, it was just the battery. Cheapest thing on a car next to the little tree deodorizer, is the battery! But since I only have $15 freakin dollars to my name, one of the guys let me borrow a battery.

Just imagine, go next door, knock knock, neighbor opens door, you say, can I borrow a cup of sugar and a car battery?

What's with the Pop-ups?
Can someone please tell me why I keep getting popups when I open my blog? TMC mentioned it in his comment before. I'm assuming that any readers are getting them here too. I use Mozilla and have the popup option turned on.

No turn between 4 & 6
So, I run over to the school to pick up the big boys and they get in. I make a uey and go to the light. It turns green and there's a woman in front of us, well she's not accelerating. I make the comment that she can't turn left here. My older son puts his entire body out the side window and yells at the top of his lungs, "YOU CAN'T TURN LEFT". One more car goes through the intersection, she turns left screeching her tires.

Now what do you think of THAT!

Definition of the day: gally lackin - when you are trying to leave and someone is taking tooooo long to get ready. Use in a sentence: Quit gally lackin around so we can go already!

Rainy Days & Mondays
Yeah, you know the song unless you under 35 or so.

Gosh dang this weekend flew by.

Friday night I took my son to get his second and last tattoo until he turns 18. It's a pic of buddha. She did an excellent job. I'll post a pic later.

Saturday we had our neice's 3rd birthday party. D's brother-in-law's family are a very snooty bunch I must say. M was cute as a button though.

Sunday we cleaned. That's it. What a great time. And now it's Monday. Arrrrggg.
