Oh, wow! I forgot today was Friday! It's still Tuesday to me. I guess because I'm still trying to finish Tuesday's To-do-list. Grrr...It's been one of those weeks. Thanks to Carrie for reminding me today was Friday!!! I've been overloaded with work, doing legal research, drafting pleadings, more research and then more research and then adding to the pile, BOTH my boys have been in trouble at school. On the plus side...I met BOTH of their vice-principals. GRRR...not the way I wanted to meet them I might add.
My youngest son, a second grader, was just goofing off, not doing school work and making bad choices. As much as I hate to say this, the call from his vice-principal wasn't a shocker. He's good hearted, but he doesn't think before he leaps. And, in his opinion, school is a social affair and since he already knows everything, he doesn't need to learn more. *rolls eyes* To give him credit, he has no problems with school academically, flies through his homework, makes A's on everything, leaving my husband convinced he's bored to tears and hence the reason for behavioral problems.
My oldest son, a sixth grader, so it's his first year in middle school and he's hit the "too cool for you" attitude. Grrr...I am not liking this phase right now. The call from his vice-principal still has me reeling in shock. This child never gets in trouble or causes trouble...at school anyway, at home he can be a thorn in my side (ask Carrie, as I've whined to her about his bizarre attitude ~ LOL), but he's ultimately good hearted and the biggest animal lover I know. Basically, he's the one I can count on to always use his manners, to show respect and to make the right choices...away from home! Even my youngest child was shocked by his older brother's misbehavior. Although I thought he was probably thinking "YES!", because finally his big brother was into some type of school trouble and it wasn't just him always in the hotseat.
So, my week has been a mixture of ups and downs. It did end on a good note last night. The editor that has my book WytchBlood e-mailed me and said she'd have a definitive answer on if they would accept my book by Monday. *bites nails nervously, while trying to cross my fingers in prayer*
