hmmm...that blog post title doesn't really work well with the title of my blog
some days just ain't that great. KWIM? KWIM Vern? heehee
Got up this morning with a bit of a sore throat. Didn't sleep enough (ever).
Spent 2 hours on church work.
Took a shower and got dressed. Got CC a shower and dressed.
Finally started school at 1 pm.
Had a nice time doing Bible, praying and singing together.
Started the first subject...Math....
We are 11 weeks behind in Math. My child is still doing 2nd grade Math because she hates it!
Now I can't really blame her because I hated it too but this math is fun!
Math-U-See is the best Math ever. If Math can be good, that is.
I have a-ha moments about Math all the time with it. Had one yesterday that I will use now.
You watch a cd with that week's lesson and then you do practice sheets.
We go 'round and 'round about how many sheets and she procrastinates doing it.
Finally today I got so frustrated, I called the public school.
I mean I actually talked to them. (Not fake-called like I normally do to scare her.)
I had to lock myself in the guest room for a few minutes and think and get calm.
Of course she is crying and begging me not to send her to public school.
I finally come out and tell her that all of her warnings and last chances are over.
One more day of fighting me on Math (on the 3rd day of school, no less!!!!) and that's it.
I think she gets it this time. I am praying for patience.
I might expect too much of her.
She is really an excellent child. She has been begging me to start school and
yesterday she said, "I love school." Except Math. Then it's a struggle.
She does everything else with no struggle and does well at it.
So after all that broo-ha-ha, we left home and went to the Sprint store.
They had told me earlier in the week that I could be added to Pastor Wess' plan for $25 a month.
That was to include unlimited internet access and phone minutes.
I had my new phone all picked out. I was super excited and ready.
I get there and the dude was wrong, it's like $70 a month!!!
Well I couldn't ask Pastor Wess to pay that.
He is going to try and work out a different deal with them but couldn't today.
So I also had to pick up Pastor Wess' phone while I was there and it ended up taking the dude an HOUR to get his new phone programmed! I was like, DUDE - I HAVE A LIFE!
My frustration level kept rising (as yours must be, reading a post this long).
Caroline kept hanging on me in the Sprint store and I was starving.
I finally went to eat with my sister at Mr. Gatti's pizza and started getting happier.
Nothin' like an Oreo pizza with cream cheese to lift your spirits.
I only got one load of dishes done today and there's laundry piles everywhere and
more dirty dishes and clutter in the floors, shoes everywhere.
I wanted to run away today.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better!!!
Here's a cute card I just saw that made me smile. From Renee Camacho...The inside says...."I didn't know you could yodel."
ha!!! I gotta make one.
