    Went to Target today and I decided to pick up a couple of picture frames and found a neat stained glass picture in a silver frame- we went there so difficult child could use a gift card he got for birthday.

    Anyway- going through the line, the cashier (probably 17 yo male) looks at the stained glass in silver metal frame and immediately starts commenting on how he could spend lots of time looking at it- he likes shiny things-

    I wanted so badly to say (and almost blurted out without thinking)- "Oh, You are a difficult child, too! Nice to meet you!"

    But, alas, I bit my tongue and just smiled and said "thank you, I think we'll like looking at it, too!"

    It's so nice to know you've met a friend wherever you go!

    Just make sure you have password protection on your computer! I came home from the store today (and STUPIDLY hadn't set a password yet.....we just got a new 'puter) and what do I find on the screen?

    Apparently it's YouTube's evil, perverted twin.

    He just left with husband to run some errands and to give husband the chance to explain to the snot why it's NOT my problem that the site disgusted me. But anyhoo...I'll have his bags packed by the time they get back and send him on his way! (Oh, speaking of his clothes.....they need washed. They REEK! And don't let him fool you....he really does know how to use a washing machine. He chooses not too)

    ok, no problem! Per judges orders, I'm already monitoring computer usage(really removing keyboard and mouse when I'm not home).

    Did I mention my plan to turn the house and all over to the boys and leave town to start a new life? I figure your difficult child can do ALL the laundry (glad to learn he knows how) and mine can do ALL the cooking. So, if your son gets here by Tuesday, I can have them self-sufficient by Friday, don't you think? I can be out of here on a plane first thing Sat. morning. I'll make sure to remind your difficult child to call you and let you know he's fine- my difficult child got a cell phone this weekend- he probably won't have lost it by next weekend so he can let your son use it.

    PHEW!! Glad that planning part is finished!!

    You're assuming of course, that my difficult child doesn't take the cell phone and disassemble it or trade it for something before your difficult child loses it! LOL

    Where's that plane headed? I'll just come with you!

    Hey, I can chill out in NY, Seattle, NC, CA, out of the country (it will be harder for them to track us down)- wherever you want! By golly, we'll get our well deserved break and these boys WILL learn to make it own their own-


    See, I'm good with this- thinking of starting my own Residential Treatment Center (RTC) with a new concept! Drop them off- show them where the bathroom, kitchen, laundry area, bedrooms are- See Ya- let them figure it out!

    Nope...removing the keyboard will not have an effect. You have to take the power cord. First, let it run down on batteries. That might make it a bit difficult if you're on the board lots.:D

    Anyone want a quick getaway...PM me. We have fun in Vegas.
