Okay, I Don't Like This Path I'm On

Last night, our school board meeting was so contentious in part that the police were nearly called.  The dispute in question involved a BOE decision pertaining to the child of a good friend of mine.  It's a small district and that kind of thing happens here.  Miserable, rotten experience on every level.

Then I hit a deer (!) on my way home in the dark.  Damned four-legged fleabags--this one literally walked out directly in front of my car and I didn't even have time to swerve.  I wasn't injured at all (thank you, Volvo, for your tanklike vehicles) and the car looks mostly ok from the outside, but probably sustained more internal damage than is superficially apparent.  Can't wait to hear what the repair guys are going to charge.

Then I went to school this morning for a spring party in Thing Two's class, and discovered that his beloved aide is being switched to a different classroom in the name of "making sure that the kids don't get too attached to her."  Not making this up.  And I am being dragged into other drama there left and right as well.

Oh, and did I mention that Himself left this morning for a three-day trip, and that Saturday is our anniversary?  He'll be back Monday afternoon.  In the meantime, I will be the chauffeur service for one soccer practice, one baseball practice, and two soccer games (both more than an hour away), dragging all three kids to each since there will be no other adult here.

Enough already...


  1. So sorry...sounds like you have a whole lot on your plate! The deer...your husband. Not sure which one is worse?

    Hope the rest of the weekend goes better for you.

  2. Thank you, Ameena!! This morning was absolutely insane but we survived and are all having 'quiet time' right now. ;) Thankfully, the activity level goes way downhill from here!

  3. Sorry - I hope it went better than planned.


I love comments...please share yours!

Preview, Part 2

(Or maybe this should have been part 1 since it will happen first.) We dropped Thing One off at his first sleepaway soccer camp on Saturda...
