So this is what I said to the Oprah show:

I have been working in public schools on the Navajo Nation for 10 years. There are no charter schools in my district. I have worked with good teachers, bad teachers and AMAZING teachers. I have no issue with being able to remove ineffective teachers, I think they should go. That being said, we also need to talk about the 3rd part of this partnership. Ii takes students, teachers and PARENTS. Many of our students arrive at school in Kindergarten with the skills of a 2 year old. The parents are not preparing the children for school. Our parents involvement in the schools is TERRIBLE. We are lucky to get 10% of our parents at a school event. The parents just expect us to take care of it all ourselves. When is someone in the public going to have the courage to stand up and say that we need parents as a partner in education. Parents have to be involved with their children and care about their education as much as the teachers.
I wish I was the bad parent here in this situation....but I'm not. Having to deal with a teacher that just doesnt bother with your child because she isn't the easiest student is really difficult. I cant even get in to speak to this teacher....She doesn't want to take time in the afternoon to talk to us.

I've spoken to Shannon's Hort teacher and she is willing to help me get Shannon through the 20 pages of maths work. We have decided between us that with all the class work and homework Shannon already has the only time Shannon really has to catch up on this maths work is on Fridays. I've said she needs to do 2 pages per week minimum and if she does more then great but the 2 pages are a must. I wont be getting her to do it any other time because she already has enough to do.....

WHY didn't she say something before the holiday??? I could have had it done with her during the summer holiday. If there had been some sign that it was work she was supposed to have done I would have made sure it was done but there was no note or red triangle to say this needs to be done. None of the pages were begun, indicating that they had done some work in school and it needed to be finished, I just thought they hadn't finished the work and it would be done this year in school.

slept the day away and am feeling fairly sore, but expect it'll be better tomorrow

off to pump and dump - I think I'll be up for nursing tomorrow, but we'll see. I wouldn't dump, but they said the anesthesia could make her sleepy and I don't want to through off her great eat during the day and sleep all night schedule by having her sleeping during the day. I pumped before surgery and haven't since because I've been so out of it.
I'm glad you are ok, you've been in my thoughts today too.....especially as I'm having surgery on Thursday too.

Oooh, the Dimetapp is helping a bit. I only took a child dose, IDK that it can save me but at this point I will take what I can get.

DH forgot and left his lunchkit outside the bathroom on his way home from work. It better still be there tomorrow! Grrr. I told him I was going to pack his sandwich in the Dora sandwich box as a consequence. And I almost did it, except I don't want him to lose TWO sandwich boxes.

I only gave this to the kids because it is what my mom gave to me as a kid, and by some miracle they have not changed the formulation in 30+ years like many of the other cold/allergy brands have over time, so I knew they had a good chance of not reacting to it. I haven't taken it since I was like 10 or 12, I don't think.

I was actually relieved when the spiders came, they ate everything else. But one night right as I was falling asleep, I saw a spider crawl across our bedroom wall. So yup, I had a nightmare of Arachniphobia magnitude, like the scene in Indiana Jones 3(?) with the bugs. Woke up screaming and throwing pillows and covers and cats and DH was freaking out because I woke him from a deep sleep and he didn't know what the heck was going on.

So now I don't dare go to sleep right after I've seen certain things, LOL.
