Sooooo, I got up early this morning, as is my practice these days. (I have to tutor kids earrrrrrrly every morning). And as usual, the light above the stove was on.
I have TOLD the boys over and over and OVER that I want all lights turned off every night. I don’t see the wisdom of paying for the electricity that no one uses. I hate waste. You name it, I’ve come up with a variation of “Turn off the @#$% light!” to no avail.
Today, there was a bonus. (And yes, I’m being extremely sarcastic here).
THE STOVE BURNER WAS ON.
Are you kidding me?????!?
Yea. From about 7:30 last night when a boy was cooking eggs (ahem, and I KNOW who you are!) until just before 5:00 am, the stove burner was on. OH! And for bonus points, there was a lighter sitting right by the stove. No, it wasn’t on the burner, and no it didn’t catch fire.
I cannot tell you how often I find fabric and other flammable items lying on the stove. And now, the stove was ON.
There will be discussions.
Sigh. I just want them to be more careful. Deliberate, even. Is that really too much to ask?
