Trust me when I tell you that I've done plenty of both in recent days.
The van was in the garage all week. Last night, I finally got clearance to drive it, as the problem seems to be not "drive threatening". That's good. I think.
We've had plenty of rain over the last several days. We spent a portion of Wednesday afternoon in the basement due to a tornado warning in our corner of the county. While we had the radio on for updates we were treated to a waterfall show. Seems that there is a fairly significant crack in the foundation on the west side of the house. Wonderful.
There also seems to be a leak in the roof over the bathroom. If you remember this post, you'll know that I was very happy with the new ceiling.
Now the ceiling looks like this:
I realize it could be worse, but COME ON!
And our 13 year old decided that since he was upset with me yesterday, he'd disappear. When I sent him a text telling him it was dinner time, I assumed he was just a block or so way up at the park. Imagine my surprise when his reply was that he was in the town thirteen miles away.
When I asked him what in the world he was thinking, he said "I was mad at you." Nice.
He's without any tv or computer games and chained to our property for a week. And his phone has been confiscated for an undetermined amount of time.
And the kicker was that he acted like it was no big deal that he took off without a word.
I don't wanna be a grown-up anymore.
