Alba’s House, Her Rules
When Jane was little, there was no man in the house until Jane was an adult. Jorge is the man of the house since he and Alba are married, and he is moving his belongings into the home.
Jorge, Mateo, and Jane were having dinner, and Jorge did not clean up his mess. Mateo said he did not have to clean up because Jorge did not. Jorge does not have good cleaning habits and does not do much around the house. Jane had a talk with Jorge, and he agreed to her conditions, but Jane did not know that he went and tattled on her. Jorge is childish and should clean up his mess.
Alba has a talk with Jane about Jorge. Jane is right. Alba says Jorge is the man of the house, but the way he is acting is a slob and messy and does not clean up after himself. Jane wants to establish that a man can help around the house as well. She just got a lecture from Alba and was told to apologize to Jorge. In my opinion, Jorge needs to do some chores around the house instead of sitting on his butt watching TV. He is not the man of the house, in my opinion.
Jane apologizes to Jorge, but Jorge is the one that needs to apologizes. Jorge has no right to be making gestures to Jane.
Jane comes home to find Alba and Jorge having sex on the couch. OHH MY GOSH!!!!! That is a moment you cannot unsee.
Jane apologizes to Alba, and she decides to move out. It is about time! Jane deserves to have some time to herself and relax when she does not have Mateo.
Jane and Rafael are considering putting Mateo on ADHD medication, but Jane does not want to start with that. Rafael agrees with her. Jane and Rafael are going to start off with some modifications.
The first modification is “dietary improvements.” The second one is to “incorporate heavy exercise before school. Lastly, constant feedback, rewards, and consequences. “It is not about the days, it is about the patterns.” I wonder how long the heavy exercise before school will last?
Jane goes to see Rafael about Mateo’s behavior. They go through the notebook and talk about the instances. Mateo had a meltdown at a friend’s birthday party, and Rafael did not let Mateo have cake.
Jane finds out that Rafael is going on a date. She did not look pleased to hear that out of his mouth. Rafael, deep down, still loves Jane. He needs to get over himself and take Jane back. They belong together forever.
Jane and Mateo run to school, and she bribes him with a candy bar, and he takes the bait. They run to school.
Rafael and Jane are trying to help Mateo focus, but Mateo is a brat. Jane and Rafael go outside to have a beer, which they deserve while Mateo is playing on his tablet. They have come to a compromise with Mateo’s schedule.
