You know what is awesome about having a teenage son? The pure destructive power of him and his friends. Now normally this might not be something of which a mother may be in favor, however today it is working to my benefit.
I have a large, nasty, ugly entertainment center. No one wants it. I can't give it away. Salvation Army won't even take it. It's way too big for the trash to pick up withut charging me extra. So it needs to be destroyed to the point where it fits in a trashcan.
Enter 16 year old son + a couple of friends.
And some sledge hammers.
No more problem.
It's a beautiful thing. :)
