We All Do Dumb Things, and Kids Are A Lot Of Work

The Caps lost tonight, too many men on the ice, the goalie started off, then went back! Thought the coach's head was going to explode. Glad I don't have a coach to yell at me when I do stupid things, I tend to do them quite frequently. For instance, threw a light bulb into a fire one time, wanted to see if it would melt. Laying there watching, the thought came to me, light bulbs, they are filled with something, what was it? POP! Oh yeah, gas. Hot embers, little pieces of glass, not my finest hour, but also not my worst! Don't yell coach, at least it wasn't a light bulb.

Had the blues today, worried about the boy and school. Maryland has that damn HSA test, you have to pass the test to graduate. The entire school year means absolutely nothing. Pass everything, all 4 years, fail the test, don't graduate. The boy isn't a test taker, but does so we in the other parts he does fine, but the HSA is always there. He didn't pass them, so he had the option to do projects. You can should see these projects! I'd like to give them to the teachers to see if they could do them. This wasn't in the manual, but we will keep him, because after this, school, there won't be anything for us to worry about, right?

Unfortunately, I think we are going to worry just as much about them when they are 40! Of course it's worth it though :)

Chris - I think you're right, and it is worth it, no doubt.

I agree, those tests are not always good, and you will worry forever

Hi,
It has been awhile since I visited many blogs.
Decided to do a quick visit to say hello to as many blogs as possible tonight..
Nice to visit your blog its been ages, I am sure it will not be so long again especially now my life is getting better.
I went out this afternoon for the first time since 19 August 2009 and it was brilliant.
Lovely to feel my world getting bigger again after all this time in bed.
Have a good evening and a pleasant day tomorrow.
Love,
Herrad
