Re: Basically its Friday!!!!

I just think it's hilarious she marched herself to the principal's office. I did not see that coming. She is always surprising me.

It's frustrating. I know the school can't contact every parent for every offense, it's not practical. But because of the way Ginger's brain works, IMO for her specific case, she's already gotten away with hitting (even if it's not hard or violent hitting) too much and now we have a very uphill battle on our collective hands to break her of this behavior. If the law had been laid down swiftly the first time for this particular behavior, we would have had a different outcome. But because I can't get a IEP or whatever for her, I can't dictate how she is handled. And I'm a little puzzled how to deal with level 1 vs level 2 physical contact, in G's mind she is not going to be able to tell the difference so she is not going to understand why sometimes the consequence is this and sometimes it is that. Agh.

Re: Basically its Friday!!!!

Back to the dishes...I opened the box with the china in it for the first time today in at least seven years (probably 10), at least five moves ago. Every dish is intact. You know, because when I packed them I had no kids, so I bought a real dish box, put each piece in a foam sleeve designed for that size dish, packed them according to instructions, etc. Unlike anything I have packed since.

Re: Basically its Friday!!!!

What an unexpected joy today have been.

Jerry got his art show moved to February, this is good, it will be tooooo cold tomorrow. So that gave us back Saturday. Whoo hoo
Jerry's Mom called and told him NOT to come today. Basically said dont you dare miss a nice day with your family we are safe and sound and all is good. Stay home.
MH took a nice nap, Jerry and I got to watch a movie. All the laundry is getting done.
House is picked up and clean enough to not bother me
Roast smells great.
Cant beat that!

Re: Basically its Friday!!!!

I spent too much time looking for a pen I lost....I have no idea what happened to it. It was always in my planner...and that is always in my bag. The planner is still there but the pen is missing.

Anyway, Obviously I had to get a new planner this year and so I needed a new pen for it. So I looked online and looked and looked.....and then I remembered a pen I used in hospital when I had Derry. I loved that pen too but doubted I'd find it. I looked in my drawer...and found it! Yay!


The one on the left is a fountain pen but I dont need that in my planner.

Hi all!

It's Friday night!!! Woohoo!!

Made it through the day. And really exhausted right about now, but all things considered, it was a good day.

I'm glad you had a good day Mel. Sorry it started out so badly.
