A time to be quiet

I’ve been quiet lately, because I’m sorting things out and figuring out what to do. On the brighter side… my daughter screamed and yelled at me because I wouldn’t drive her somewhere this evening. I said, “No, I am not responsible for you going out on the weekend. And it seems like every weekend there is an emergency so I have to drive you to the train station. You can walk.”

I suggested she stay home and we watch a movie together. “Not with you! I’ll barricade myself in my room before I spend the evening with you!” I made popcorn and settled in front of the TV. Ten minutes later, she was on the couch next to me. We ended up watching a movie, and then playing cards together. It turned out to be a nice evening. Just the two of us, as my husband is away and my son was out with friends. And so, my 16-year-old learned that sometimes it’s not the end of the world to stay home with her mother on a Saturday night.
