Hi everyone. Just checking in. School is going well for the kids and me. I had a big test in Environmental Science yesterday and I am waiting for my instructor to post the grades(fingers crossed). So far I have As in both of my other classes. DH is on an elk hunting trip in Colorado and will be back sometime tomorrow. DS had a home football game last night and they trounced the other team 66 to 12. DD is mad at me because I made her come home right after the game. She had made plans to go out with The BF to someone's house for a bonfire. However, she was being truly horrible to DS and me the other day. I did not yell at her or punish her immediately because I wanted to think of what would truly be a punishment to her. Yelling does not work. Revoking driving privileges does not work, because it ends up being punishment for me. I finally decided that making her come home early on Friday night would be the most powerful thing. Not only was she mad about having to stay home when all her friends were having a good time, but she was embarrassed that I called her on her behavior in front of The BF. I was not mean about it and I didn't say anything to humiliate her; I didn't even raise my voice. I just calmly explained that I did not like how she spoke to me or her brother, that it was not a "conversation" as she put it, but downright meanness, so since she does not have the maturity to speak to other members of this household respectfully, she is not mature enough to handle a social situation. She went storming upstairs, muttering something about how I was being "retarded", which I find extremely offensive, so she will probably end up having to come right home next Friday too. The only other thing I could think of is hitting her in the pocketbook and fining her when she is mean. Except then she probably wouldn't end up having enough money for gas to get to work. **sigh**. I have spent the morning working on a paper for my College Writing class. It has taken me all morning and into the afternoon. Now I have to compare it to Helen Keller's "Everything Has A Name" essay. I also need to run some errands and get some outside chores done. Today and tomorrow are the last nice warm days we will probably see for quite a while.

Nice to see you Wendy! Hope the punishment sinks in and she gets it. Congrats on school!
