"Grounded For Life"

Disclaimer: I don't own "Grounded For Life" or the characters. However, the plot line is all mine.

Claudia had just woken up from her nap when she heard Gracie crying. She sighed. She had had a long day at work and came home to take a nap. Lily was away at college, Sean and Eddie were working at the bar, and Jimmy and Henry were out. She looked at the clock. It was 5:00. She went upstairs to feed and change Gracie. She got her dressed and put her in the car to go to the grocery store.

About a half hour later, Claudia returned home to make dinner. She put Gracie in her playpen and started boiling water. Then the phone rang.

"Hello," Claudia answered.

"Hey baby, it's me. I'll be home a little late because we're having a karaoke night at the bar and business is hopping," Sean said.

"Alright, finally after two years," Claudia said.

"Yeah. Hey, I got to go but I'll see you tonight, ok?"

"Okay, love you see you later," Claudia hung up.

After dinner she watched TV and waited for Sean. After putting Gracie to bed and talking to Lily on the phone she was tired so she decided to go to bed.


Claudia jumped out of bed when she heard the noise. She glanced at her alarm clock. It was 2:56 am.

"It's probably just Sean," she thought as she started to go back to sleep.


Claudia jumped out of bed for the second time and ran downstairs to see what all the noise was. She carried the cordless phone and a baseball bat in case it was a burglar.

"Sean!" she called when she reached the bottom of the stairs. No answer. The noise stopped.

She walked in the kitchen ever so cautiously and turned on the light. There was a staggering man with a beer in his hand and a tall ,model like woman in the kitchen making out.

"Who are you and what are you doing?" she called holding the bat up.

The man turned around.

"Sean!" Claudia gasped.

"Oh, hey babe! This is Stacey. Stacey, this is my wife Claudia.," Sean said.

"Sean! What do you think you're doing kissing some other woman in our kitchen where our children lived?" she yelled. "No wonder you were gone so long! You were cheating on me!" she started to cry.

"No, baby, look I'm sorry. I'm drunk. I don't even know what I did! I'm sorry! Please forgive me!" Sean said.

"No Sean! It's over! I'm done! I want a divorce!" Claudia yelled walking upstairs when she heard Gracie crying.
