This month she had 1 period but she was on it 13 days straight!!!
So this is why I took her just to see if there is anything that can explain why this poor girl is going thru so much.
My daughter says that her school had a mock election and her principal announced to the whole school that not 1 vote went to McCain! Not one teacher, not one student! That's pretty impressive that a whole middle school would not touch McCain with a ten foot poll!
Darin had his parent/teacher conferences and he had me thinking that he was in big trouble. The kid got mostly A's and B's...1 C+ and 1 D+ ...The D was in physical science and his teacher said that all he had to do was study a little bit more and he could be a C or B easy!
My worry was that he comes home with not one piece of homework. Turns out he is telling the truth and getting his work done and is turning it all in...but one teacher said that his grade would be much better if he turned in more quality work.
So to those teachers I told them that Darin was an honor student for a full year and I know that he can do better. Darin did not like me telling them that because he now knows that they know he can do it...yeh...I kinda put the pressure on Darin to do better.
Work is hopefully going to get better for me. I'm not holding my breath. My boss has been promising me that she will give me more hours with less days. In a 10 week schedule I had worked everyday but 6 of those days. It's starting to wear on me.
I hope Frank's work goes back to full time soon. Bills are mounting, I am trying really hard not to panic...But with Christmas around the corner and Amber's trip to Washington I just want to run and hide. Amber is trying so hard in school just to keep her grades up so that she will be able to go and I have to make it happen...Darin got to go so I have to find the way to save $675.00 before March. Darin loved the trip, he learned and saw things that I haven't even seen yet.
Anyhoo...The past couple days have really sucked. Frank and I are dealing with being sick! Pretty sure it's a horrible cold. Runny nose, congestion, muscles hurt, drained. Yucky!
Well I'm off to ZZZZZZZZ land.
