Bare with me.. this is going to be a long post. You might want to get a cup of coffee and pull up a seat!
Today ( Wednesday ) started off good but early. On Wednesday's I like to do paper work, paying bills, clipping coupons.. office type work.. and what is great about my life is..
I can pack up my office and take it right to my bed. I worked upstairs from 8am till noon and actually accomplished a lot.
I also got some great coupons to use with
whatever great sale for the same products I find!
Also.. I have to say.. I am LOVING these
inc Forma gel pens.. Both are in black ink.. but its total l♥ve for me!
I was really tired getting up but what kept me going was the steady supply of coffee I kept putting into my system. And I switched it up a little and used some of my favorite creamer in the am...
Baily's Creme Brulee is amazing! If you haven't tried it yet.. its a must!
I also managed to get all those coke rewards put in!!
I do have some photo freebies but I still have to figure out what to order!
I worked aorund the house for a few hours in the afternoon and waited for Jackson to get home. He was in a good mood and we giggled all afternoon long. He did watch some tv in my room but for the most part we were just hanging out. ( This is a key part of tonight )
Husby came home at a reasonable time and we really enjoyed
the beautiful evening together. Husby and Jackson even got some
basketball time in together with Landen.
Then Scott and I took a few minutes to make some important phone calls on the back porch. ( More about that tomorrow)
I took the opportunity of the beautiful night and Romeo to give him a little camera time!
I am not sure if anyone understands how much I am in love with this beautiful massive kitty cat!
Then it became dinner time..
Then while I was making
breakfast for dinner, Scott was busy working on math homework..
That was an entire blog post alone.. If you want to see the homework HELL story, you can clicky click right here.
So at this point, all is well. Jackson takes his shower and then goes to bed and falls asleep around 10. I retire to a
nice long bath.. and come out to watch tv and find out the DVR has been..
I instantly knew the Jackson was the one who deleted over 25 movies and all the shows from today. And I knew why he did it. The DVR was 99% full and I had to clean it up so I deleted some of his cartoons .. not movies but cartoons and he got upset about it. Mind you.. This DVR I am speaking of is in MY bedroom and really its for both Scott and I. I was really upset.. I woke him up over it and he didn't really respond well. I even tried calling to see if there was anything I could do to get them back. Nope. Scott heard me waking him up and woke up too. He was really upset and I really wanted to bust his ass. But I DIDN'T. Instead I went to cool off and let him go back to sleep. After talking to a few friends, my mom and Scott... they all seem to agree that this is a groundable offence. My girlfriends think he should have got his butt whipped for it but since thats not happening.. I guess little Jackson is grounded till atleast Saturday with no tv. I never understood my parents telling me it hurt them more than it ever hurt me. They were right. We had a great evening togehter. The house was full of laughs and giggles.. smiles.. and now I am upset over the movies but I am more upset that he thought that trying to get even with his mom was ok.. and now I have to be mean and ground him. It sucks. Its just movies so I will deal with it.. but it hurts that he was such a brat about it.. when it wasn't his DVR or even his room. He is also banned until further notice from stepping one foot in this room. He doesn't know he is grounded yet.. and I hate even starting his day off like that. It makes me feel like a piece of shit but hes going to learn a lesson from this.
Like it or not.. Jackson is grounded.
The majority of my " trusted advisors " thinks he should be grounded for a week or so mainly because he did it just to be mean. That's a little long I think.. I don't know.. Feel free to leave your opinion below becuase I am at a loss on what to do. I think how long he is grounded will be a result of how he acts. Also a few nights ago I found out Jackson ordered 2 paperview movies that he shouldn't have been watching. So the tv is becoming an issue. I guess I am suppose to be strong and nip in the butt now but I hate being mad at him. I freaking hate it.
So we are already into Thursday - its 145 am here - and the day is starting off kinda sad. Its going to be really sad when I have to tell him in the morning that he is grounded. He also wanted extra money to get more from the bookfair tomorrow but I am thinking that might not happen. I already gave him $20 that he spent at the bookfair and I was just going to be nice and give him the extra money he wanted tomorrow. In fact, $10 is laid out on the coffee table right now for him. So he's not going to like that one bit either. I am kinda confused about what to say in the morning becuase I don't want to make his day at school miserable or sad but I think he needs to know that hes in trouble for being so inconsiderate and mean. And he also needs to remember who's boss becuase its certainly not him.
Time for some wine
and bed. =(
