Snap! Goes the Matron

For a time, the Matron followed a blog in which certain posts were labeled "fun with teens." The content of those posts was precisely that - -fun and light-hearted. This mama clearly enjoyed the neo-adult era.

Then the blog abruptly ended after her sixteen year old son and his girlfriend announced they were having a baby.

So much for fun with teens (or maybe a little too much fun FOR the teens)!!

The Matron felt a bit like that this morning. She went from having yesterday's Buddha-like conversation with her eldest to being whipped about this morning like Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio on the Titanic.

Turns out that while Stryker was sleeping some demonic hormonal unhappy monster snuck into his room and possessed him!! This creature exists in complete combative existence with the rest of humanity -- especially his family.

Fortunately for the Matron, this unexpected transformation took place on the day that the children are headed down to Grandma Mary's for an overnight. The first of the summer. They are scheduled to return tomorrow night, just after dinner.

But when the Titanic is shipping and you're clinging to that deck for dear life?

While the unsuspecting children are en route, you call Grandma Mary to see if she can keep them an extra night. Regardless of whether or not they want to. . .

Done!

Ooh, she is SOOOO excited! And currently ALONE IN THE HOUSE for about the first time all summer! Who says sex is better than solitude?

Enjoy the solitude! Did you send your husband and Satan's Familiar along?

I got aroused vicariously just reading this.

Friends: Satan's Familiar went to Grandma's too! I'm keeping the husband (for when the solitude thing is over :-).

Boys. That does happen.

Possession? We always theorized that it was alien abduction, with the abducted child being replaced by an evil clone.

Please e-mail me and tell me which blog that was!

Matron -

I'm a lurker, but I love your blog. I'm happy to pass on the Humane award to you. You can link the award from my blog if you'd like. Happy weekend and enjoy the solitude!

Wait until the female version starts. There are days I want to run away-far away.

Hurrah, solitude! I'll take it anytime! It is more precious than gold!

I'm way more excited about your weekend than I am about mine.

I'll leave it at that.
