One day I came home from school and my mom wasn't happy when she saw me. She told me to go to my room and then I would understand her unhappiness. Once I walked into my bedroom, I saw the mess. "If this is not cleaned up by dinner time, you're grounded." "Yes ma'am." I put my dirty clothes in the laundry room, and put my shoes in the closet where they belonged. I thought I was done, but I was wrong. When dinner time came around, mom came to check my room. She was furious! There were toys everywhere, blankets all over the place and trash in my bed. "You did not clean your room miss," I knew then what was coming. "You're grounded for two months. That means no TV, no friends, no dessert, no four wheeler, and no toys." "Yes ma'am," I quietly said so ashamed of myself. After my grounding, I kept my room clean all the time. I was not going to get grounded again.
