One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Grounded from the Internet

Due to a certain number of kids around here, who can't get their dishes done, the internet is off for a few days (or longer).  I'll see you all when they learn to prioritize and be responsible.

My 14 year-old never made last night's dinner either.  She went "shopping" with her 19 year-old sister, and never came home until after dinner (even though they were told to be back in time to make it).  They both knew I was not feeling well, and I am still not feeling well.

Good for you. On top of your being sick, in real life if you don't do your job you don't get paid. Too bad you can't set up wireless. You could just change the password :)

aW... sorry your sick.
Isn't that how it always is? The kids get grounded and the parents have to suffer too.
I never liked to 'ground' for that reason...I was more of corporal punishment type. :/

Get well...and look at the bright side. Think of all the projects and crafts you'll get done while recuperating w/o the internet!

It stinks when people challenge you in the best of times... but when you are sick it is even worse and even when it is your kids! They are growing up and I guess somewhere it is written in fine print that teenagers shall challenge their mother! *sigh* I feel your pain...
Hugs and get better soon girlfriend!
