School Days


I’m in a funk.

I was really, really, REALLY looking forward to having 3 days a week with 2.5 hours a morning of time to myself. ONly to find out that number 4 will have to go to school in the afternoon. AFTERNOON!!!! That means, damn it! That I won’t get that free time. Time to write uninterrupted.

It feels selfish…but, rather, I like to think of it as disappointment. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.


I guess this all just part of being bitchy… Grrrr.

On the other hand, my daughter took her father to Open House last night, and her teacher took this time to inform her father how much she’s falling behind. OMG! was I pissed or what! First of all, we [parents] were told specifically that this was NOT parent-teacher conference time! We should restrain ourselves from having lengthy conversations with the teacher. This was inappropriate. It was an open door, open session–anyone could walk in–visit. My daughter’s brother was standing right there with them. I mean, COME ON!

My daughter is strong and she held it together with stoic appreciation. But when she got home, she cried. And of course, hubby is just upset that she has fallen behind. He doesn’t really see the wrong. But I do! and I emailed that teacher and told her what I thought. Nicely. Bitchy is for this blog.

Sometimes, I hate teachers. Why are they like this? Have you ever had a teacher talk to you condescendingly? I have. Many times. It just pisses me off. This is the icing on the cake though. You don’t mess with my kids! Stupid.
