So early this morning my DS called that the light had burned out in his room , went down and replaced it with a light blub from another light and went back to bed.  This morning we got ready for work and school and left telling my DH that the light bulb in the other light needed replacing and I didn't know where they were.  Apparently the light cover fell from the one I replaced and broke on the floor.  Needless to say when we got home today my DH told DS that he could'lve gotten a lamp or something instead of replacing the light bulb.   It upset my son .  Now I do think my son is being a b

Well SS got caught with a cat in his place and landlord threatened to kick him out.   BM advised him to get out before he got kicked out so he moved back in with us for about a month with said cat.   It went really well for awhile until I made a comment about a new car being a better investment than a used car , the new car in question was the same make and model as DD new car.  SS said that he wanted his sister to have a good car in a snide sort of way. I incrediously commented as opposed a new car .

To do or not to do

Well its been great.   SS is still living in his apartment with a roommate and couch surfer.   He applied for three jobs but didn't get any of them.   SD is living with her mother , still doesn't have a driving license (that may change today as she has her driving test today) and playing SIMS all day, though I guess she got a job at mom's office as a receptionist earning 22 dollars a hour.  That puts her earning more than her dad.  We'll see how long this job lasts. 

Still going good

Well SS has been in his apartment for about a month.  He'll probably be getting a roommate soon.  The other roommates parent's didn't think their newly 18 year old son was ready for such responsibility.  My DH seemed shocked this was the case.   Um hello.  The only way SS is affording this apartment is he is not.  Mom gives him and SD $600 a month in addition to paying for the apartment along with furnishing it.  When the washer needed a new motor she bought a new one instead.  DH has already ordered the part to repair it but oh well,   It of course started to leak and SS called mom who cal

So Far, All is Going Well

Count me shocked.   Its been a week since SS moved into his apartment.    The lease was signed by BM and him.  She has bought him a couch and some minor things here and there.   DH brought over a card table we had in the shed for him to use as a table until one can be bought as well as some glasses and mugs along with SS coffee grinder and drip set he's had for two years and hardly used.   Now he can have coffee.    A washer and dryer set was purchased by BM, however, they were lacking feet which DH bought .  They arrived today and he took them over so he could hook up the washer and dryer.

So SS now 18 today, happy birthday to him is moving into his apartment this weekend more than likely.  His mommy got him the apartment and will be paying the rent for the first couple of months.  SS has no job and hasn't finished high school yet.  He's at home playing video games and sleeping and probably binge watching Netflix with his sister and mom when mom isn't sleeping or working.  He is in my opinion classic bipolar and it has been suggested.  He has mild autism, anxiety and depression.  In the three and half years he has lived with his dad and me he takes his medication for a bit, s

Independence

Well life just keeps getting interesting.    So BM has been here since mid-November and SS went to stay with her.  About three weeks ago he had friends over to her house and they decided to get a apartment together.   They are all seventeen and none of them have graduated high school yet, SS isn't even enrolled in school.   SS will be 18 next month.  None of them have a job.   Well anyway, SS now has an apartment that mom has rented for him.  She will pay the first couple of months rent and then he'll take over.   The two friends invovled will be going to college in the Fall.

Merry Christmas

Well it was a interesting Christmas .  SS and SD spent Christmas Eve with their mother.   Christmas morning dawns and DH and I are watching television because that is what you do while waiting for teenagers and young adults to wake up.    They wake up and we have breakfast.   They return to their rooms.  Yes that's right we haven't opened presents yet.  DS comes back down and asks about presents.  I look at husband and ask when we should we open presents.  What I should've said in hindsight is do you want to wait for your kids to come over.  He says whenever,  I take that ( and yes should'v

Now that the work drama is over we're moving on.    Today DH and I were going over car insurance since we've added a new car and some paperwork needed to be completed.  We have two forms that need to be turned in, a uninsured motorist form and a Steer Clear which is a teenage driver discount.   The steer clear invovles having an App on your phone that monitors your driving habits.   Once completed you get a certficiate.   The app was on SS phone but he switched phones half way through the processs.    Needless to say, the insurance company now needs the completed certficiate in order to app

Drama over? LOL

Well it came to a head on Friday.    SD went to work mid morning and was scheduled to work until early evening.  She came home about two hours after she started very upset.  Said she had a bad  day at work.   Went right down to her room and didn't come out until her dad came home.   Turns out that T said something to her and she was ready to hand in her resignation but other workers encouraged her not to but to call HR and put in a complaint.  SD did so and HR informed her that this was her final warning to stop.    HR told SD that she was liar and needed to leave family matters at home and
