I swear, sometimes I think my mind takes a vacation on me! This past week (since last Friday) has been pretty stressful and my blog completely slipped my mind. Completely!!
On Friday, at 3:36 (when school is releasing for the day), I get a call from school. As soon as I see Boad of Education on my caller ID, I cringe. But I figured it was just another automated message because school was letting out so what could be the problem?
Ummm...it had just taken the assistant principal that long to get to me. Kidlet had gotten into an altercation with another boy in the gym during PE. He was being suspsended for 4 days AND was CHARGED with disorderly conduct. He'll have a juvenile court appearance in a few weeks. The other boy was charged with disordly conduct and assault.
I'm not complaining about the punishment, I think it was deserved and I hope the trip to court, and subsequent community service will be a wake-up call to kidlet that he needs to keep his mouth shut and not always engage when being picked on. I know, hard to do. But he needs to learn.
To top that off, on Saturday my oldest calls and says, "I need to talk to you about a few things." Oh shit! That's my initial reaction. Always! To that statement. It turns out not to be too bad, and I think he's making progress in getting his life togerher, albeit slowly. It's like 2 steps forward, 1 step back. But a friend of mine said her son was still sidestepping so I'll take the slow forward progression. :)
Anyway, with having kidlet home this week, and having to constantly supervise and keep him working his little tail off so he doesn't get the impression this is a vacation, I completely forgot about my blog. I already had Mon. - Wed. set, so I didn't have to think about getting them together. But not todays. *sigh*
So what's going on in everyone else's life? Lu, you want to share about the ladies? Liza, how's the training going (I'm so impressed with your efforts!!!). Silver? Paula? Janet? Anyone else who visits but doesn't comment?
Someone share some good news with me please? LOL
Have a great, fantastic Thursday!!!
Peace and love,
