I had a great weekend with my boys. Since I often come on here to bitch, and/or get some support, I thought I would start this thread to tell a good story from the weekend. Y'all should chime in with yours too. They don't have to be big stories, just ones that made you smile.

The bathroom in my apt is quite small, and doesn't have much storage space. 10 always leaves his toothbrush on the shelf right in front of the Kleenex box. Whenever I pull out a Kleenex, his toothbrush almost falls. I move it to where it is supposed to be, give him shit, and then it's right back there after he uses it again.

This happened again on Saturday, so I went into the living room and said, "If I knock your toothbrush onto that dirty patch of floor beside the toilet, do you know what I'll do?"

He looked up from his iPod. "Throw it out?"

"Nope. I'll put it back on the shelf ... and say nothing."

He got up, went into the bathroom, and put it away properly. And that's where he kept putting it all weekend.

Wonderful! Way better than constant reminders!

While I don't have anything that fun to share, I did have a good weekend with dd16. Well, until dd7 came home and let us know that dad's girlfriend is moving in next door to him. After their dad told them he was breaking it off. So, what little ground dd16 gained in therapy this weekend just got yanked out from under. But at least she and I had a few laughs. Watched a movie, went shopping for stuff to put on her boyfriend's garter for homecoming ( this is Texas, after all).

Redecorated my bedroom so that it is mine, not ours. Strange to only consider what i want.

"Mummy, when you hurt yourself can you kiss yourself better or do you need Nonna (my mum) to kiss it?".

Triple - I did that a year ago and it was nice to pick out whatever I liked and to not have to think of someone else's opinion!

Hmm, this weekend...a nice story is that while I didn't have my kids and missed them of course, I got a bunch done around the house and feel good about it. Yay!

Nothing from this weekend comes to mind, but a while ago, I came home to my two teens laughing histarically together. They can't breathe to tell me what's so damn funny, they just point to the patio doors.

Upon further investigation, I take a good look at my dog on the other side. My two bright, charming teenagers had drawn eyebrows on the dog with black eyeliner. He's a Sheltie with a white and tan face.

Makes me feel so good to know I've raised such caring, well-rounded people!!

At least it was eyeliner and not Sharpie! LOL! That's pretty funny.

Devastated, that's good stuff!

Not sure how that weird frowny face got there??

Mine would have totally used Sharpies.....

Poor dog looked perpetually surprised for a week. He's a hyperactive Sheltie! You try washing his face!
