How to start - My 6 year old son has been spinning tales since he was able to walk and talk. He is a very bright little boy and does know the difference between right and wrong, even though at times it can be a battle. He has taken to lying about small things at home like "I didn't do it!" etc. etc., which of course because of these lies we have a very hard time believing him when we ask him questions about what he may have done or not done. Anyway, he had a note sent home from school the other day and I did not recieve it (as I said he is a bright boy, LOL). He had bad behavior in school a week ago and he did end up telling me about it after he recieved a bookmark telling him he was super well behaved the next day. Anyway the teacher called today to let me know she had sent a note home (the one I did not recieve). Then she said my son said another little boy on the bus took it out of his folder and threw it on the floor of the bus (which you ask yourself if this is true why didn't he pick it up, I think we all know the answer to that). He has consequences for lying, but they obviously are not working. So what do I do?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
