Hips Don't Lie

No, that they don't. My right hip has away of reminding me that I'm not as young as I used to be, nor will I get any younger. Sigh! Thankfully it's not all of the time, I can't wait to hear what my doctor has to say about it. :)

As for the rest of me I've faired better. Dealing with a a hyperactive biological clock that lives with a hypoactive one has been frustrating to say the least. We are also dealing with MAJOR teacher problems this year. Why couldn't we bring Alex's teacher from last year?? To summarize, when after 4 days your son's teacher is keeping a log on all of his behavior, callously throws out the term ADHD and then laughs it off because whenever he's sent to sit quietly he does just that, tells you that instead of talking to you or meeting with you that you have to wait and have a large meeting with the principal and vice principal and completely discredits the guidance support that the principal issued before the program even starts. Well, 10 years ago I probably would have had a gun blazing showdown day one, now? Well, I'll use the time to dig up teaching ethics violations, let her continue to go on down that path and she can have her large scale meeting, she'll be given enough rope to hang herself as the saying goes.

Needless to say it has impacted the stitching a bit. I have a little Frogging to do on Velcome and I need to replace some of my perles for the stocking I'm working on. With my FREX winnings I splurged and bought the accessory pack for Victoria Sampler's Poinsetta Tuffet ornament out of the preview issue. I was tickled pink when it arrived last night in the mail. I've been itching to do some hardanger again and it's perfect for that little fix. As for the gym, I'm slowly but surely building my classes back up so I can hopefully get back down to my wedding weight again.

Good luck getting to your wedding weight...I'm thinking of making a nice Anniversary pillow out of mine with a nice stitched piece in the center. Really, I don't plan on wearing it again, lol.

Alex's teacher has her girdle on too tight. You have a VERY good strategy. I'm betting on you! Wanna borrow my boxing gloves for after the year is done? hehe

Teachers are for HELPING...not HURTING.

I don't blame you for being wrapped up in this. I can't believe how this is being handled. You continue to do your digging because what you have so far is perfect and will hopefully put her in her place ;o)

Sorry the school year is not getting off to a good start for you and Alex. I hope things improve *really* soon... life is hectic enough without having to deal with those issues.
