So difficult child came home last night after being away for a little over a month. We discussed rules and consequences, he agreed, everyone was getting along great. Yeah!!!! I fell asleep in front of the TV watching American Idol and didn't go up to bed until 2am. Bad habit. Anyway, he is still up. Well, he is 16 and I don't normally tell him what time to go to bed so I don't say anything. I know he was there because he shut the door and turned out his light as I was coming up the stairs - does he think I'm that stupid? Anyway, he would not get up for school this morning. I told him dad was making eggs for breakfast and they'd be ready in 15 minutes, when they were ready I called him again, a few minutes later his dad went and got him up and then another 10 minutes later went up again. He ended up missing the bus and husband had to drive him to school. This has been a huge problem for 2 years. So, I went out and bought him the loudest alarm clock I could find today so he can use that in conjunction with the other one - maybe that and some sleep will help. Ugh! When I went in his room to put the alarm clock on his bed I noticed there was no screen on his window. I have looked everywhere and can't find it. This is a big window - 4' x 3' and goes out onto the roof above the garage -very easy to sneak out by jumping off the roof onto the deck and then using the railing to get back up and into the house. Not sure if he snuck out last night (he was fighting with girlfriend) or if this was before he left. To top that off I think he may have possibly taken my car! I am going to clock the kilometres I drove since I got gas last night and see if they match what is on my car right now. I am beyond frustrated and hope I am wrong!
