I am really reeling right now, so this is going to be a bit of a vent, but I promise there is a question in there, LOL.
I have a set routine in the morning - I get up between 6-6:30, have my coffee, read my bible, do a bit of yoga, and relax and prepare myself for my day - alone. I'm one of those people that really needs that time. Now, my step son knows this. He, in fact, asked me repeatedly yesterday if I was going to be getting up early today b/c if I wasn't he wanted to get on the video game when he got up. I continually told him that yes, I was b/c daddy was working. Last night before bed, he asked again, and I told him to stop asking b/c he already knew the answer. Well, this morning I wake up at 6:20 and walk into the living room to see him up and playing on the video game! Needless to say, I was LIVID. I did not yell at him, but I did let him know that I was NOT happy.
How would you handle this situation?

I hate when anyone gets up on my "morning time"!! I have a t-shirt that says "Don't ask Mom before her coffee!!"
Sometimes people can't help if they aren't feeling well or have to go to the bathroom, but I still get cranky! Your step son knows how important it is to you because he kept asking you if you were getting up. Maybe you could ground him from the video game because he disobeyed you, after he asked repeatedly.
Good Luck and try to have a good day anyway.
