Letting it all out

Okay I've been holding in lot in...and I mean a lot! And it's not good for me. I don't share everything on here in order to protect others. Just because I choose to put my life out on there world-wide web doesn't mean they do. But I need to get some of it out...

My teenager snuck out the other night. One more thing crossed off on my list of things my kid will never do. I didn't stocker call him, or freak out, I just went back to sleep in his bed. That's what he came home to, I'm thinking he'll probably never forget it. To say the least he is grounded, but I almost think going to sneak back through your window to find your Mom in your bed is punishment enough.

'Oh and I found out my x-boyfriend is engaged...RAD! As much as I want to be happy for him, I'm not, at least not yet.


  1. Hi, Emily --

    You and Annette talk on the phone, right? How is she doing? Somebody asked her if she was OK in response to her post a few days back and there's been no reply. Annette's postings are an appreciated part of your blog. How is she?

  2. Emily, I couldn't imagine having to deal with kids and be sober, you get extra sober points for that!!!! I love that you jumped in his bed, that is great way of handling it instead of going out of your mind trying to find him. The ex thing must sting a bit, but hopefully it is for the best, and you can move towards someone too. Maybe this is the ending of that chapter and it will allow you to focus on the person you want to find for you. have a great day!!

  3. Haha...That is a great way of dealing with a teenager! I never thought of doing that! Thank God mine are grown and gone.

  4. I have a crew and and a teen. Beware.. This as you know is not a good sign as it is not okay to leave the house when mom doesn't know - I love your approach to make a statement ..cleaver for sure.. but you already know that these yrs. are tough.. even dangerous. Be as strong as you can even if they hate you because you monitor them... It is better to be the mean mom than the ... one who thought he was such a good kid....Peace.. one day at a time.
