This afternoon in the mail my new (used) phone came in the mail-long story on that for another post maybe. Anyways, we decided to stop at Best Buy on the way to the health club to look for a protective case for the phone. We couldn't find one but husband did get something and even bought difficult child some new headphones. Then we went to the health club and difficult child was upset he couldn't play basketball because there was a tournament of some sorts going on. After the club difficult child was complaining he was hungry. husband and I decided we were as well and decided to go to Texas Roadhouse. difficult child wasn't super thrilled with the choice but there is food there he will eat. After that we went to the mall to see if we could find a cover for the phone at a kiosk there. No luck! husband asked difficult child if he wanted some ice cream. difficult child didn't want McDonald's ice cream or any from Culvers so we said o.k. While we were at the mall he asked for running shoes. We told him not today that he would need to wait until track started. He kept repeating that is what he wanted and we told him no. All the way home he kept complaining and started swearing. I tried to tell him he should be grateful for what he did have and the nice things we had done for him today (husband also took him to a movie today). He yelled at me to shut up and then husband got upset with him. When we got home he threw a huge fit. He was going to block husband from coming in the house and I told him he better not. Then he told me to shut the H***up and then called me a S***. husband was furious. We told him he could go to his room and he refused. Then we told him that we were done for the month doing things for him so he went to his room. He decided to go to his room and look up "homes for kids" on the internet. O.k. I have to admit I was laughing at this. difficult child kept raging (screaming and threatening to leave, etc..-no violence!). Of course, he still wasn't getting his way so he kept getting angrier. He said he wished he was dead. That is something he ever says so now I'm a bit concerned. Mostly I'm guessing he said it in anger to get our attention. He has apologized to husband but, of course, not to me as he sees me as the one who causes all things bad in his life. I'm always the bad guy! I know he has made a ton of progress in so many areas and I'm very happy about that but right now I'm so tired of the day in and day out garbage!
