It's officially started! My new trip report. Right now, I've named it the "Stop Making Me Laugh Or I'll Pee My Pants! Go Back! I've Lost My Shoe! Trip Report. That could change if I think of something else. But, we did shout those words more than a few times on the trip.

The link's in my signature.

I'm off to read it!

It looks like we may not be doing Disny anytime soon.
DH went to the Drs today. I had mentioned in my TR how he was having problems keeping up with becuase of a sore hip. Well he finally was told to go to a specialist, which he should've been told over a year ago to go. His Dr is horrid, and we've all told him to find a new one. Well anyways, he went today and he has to have a hip replacement. So with the recovery and cost, I'm sure fun things are going to be cut to a minimum for awhile. I feel bad for him, but I hope this helps him. The specialist was appalled that this dumb Dr made him get mri's and other un-needed test before he sent him to a specialist. He said that the x-rays from last Dec show the problem and he should've been sent then, and obviously this Dr has no clue how to read them. The specialist put it in terms DH could understand..."this wheel isn't going to last on the cart much longer" lol!
So thats our lovely news for the day! But hopefully this will cure alot of DH's problems and his sleep problems too since he is in so much pain.

Gotta love those grants.....don't have to pay them back!

I hope you're having a good read. Come on over to the new report when you get finished (or even before).

Since this thread is now mostly just chatter amongst us friends, I thought I'd post Hunter's school day news. He called and said his English teacher told him "you're not in kindergarten anymore!" when he told her that he didn't have his textbook. He asked if he could go to his locker and see if it was there but that he didn't think that she had ever issued him one. She let him go but when he got back she barked at him that he had to pay $5.00 to get another book. Hunter said he really doesn't remember her giving him a book. Instead of making this teacher all ticked off at him for the entire year, I'm going to send the $5.00 (by check so she can't pocket it).

Hunter was pretty upset by the whole ordeal but he's over it now. Thank goodness!

I had that problem with one of Gwendolyn's teachers her sophomore year. they have to pay a class fee for every class; we knew we had paid it (cash, of course). Well they would not give her her report card until the $3 was paid. So, now I sit down and write a check for anywhere $2-$20 depending per fee. Last year I wrote out 8 checks probably the most I wrote in an entire year. Tell him we believe him and that his teacher is problably just overwhelmed with the start of the new year and would feel really bad if she knew he did not even get a book issued

Poor Hunter. I'm glad he's over it now. That can be pretty traumatic on the third day of school...even if it is HIS fourth day.

Teachers are human too, but it sure did seem like she was kind of mean.

I hope he has a good Friday (and everyone else does too)!

Poor Hunter. No kid likes to be called out in front of the class. A little over the top. You are right. Send a check made out to the school. Some people really shouldn't be teachers. They do it for the wrong reason. BTW, Don is making a new batch of wine. I'm smelling it as I type. I will pm you so I can get your address. Loving the new report.

I will never forget the time I was in 6th grade. I went to a Catholic School. They were very strict. Tuiton for the school was set up to make payments each month. Well, one time the princepal was in the classroom giving out the report cards. (that is how they did it there!) She gets to my name, which was last because my maidan name starts with a W!! "Danielle W... you won't be receiving your report card today because your parents have yet to make their monthly tuition payment!!!" OMG! How embarrassing!!! In front of the whole class!!! I went home that day so mad at my parents! LOL! Well, they were never late on a tuition payment again!!

Thanks for agreeing with me on the teacher situation. I talked with Hunter a little more about it this morning on the way to school. He said the teacher started out nice when he said he didn't have a workbook. Then, when he came back from his locker, she said something like, you just wasted $5.00 of your parents' money by losing your book. Then, some guy came in the room pushing a cart and she said, we've already had somebody start this school year losing a book. When the guy asked who, she pointed Hunter out to him and the entire class. He's the one that actually make the kindergarten comment.

John and I both told Hunter exactly what to say to his teacher today. We even practiced because we didn't want him to say it in such a way that his teacher would think he was being smarty to her.

The teacher is his 7th period teacher so she was probably tired of new kids and school at the end of the day. Still no excuse.

If I didn't want her to be pissed off at Hunter all year long, I'd have called the school up and spoken to her.

You know for a fact those teachers hold what parents say against those kids. It gets worse in middle school and high school. I don't understand where adults get off picking on our youth. Kids learn what the see and hear. They then think it is ok to act and talk that way. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I'm so sorry to hear that he has a teacher who sounds very tired and sarcastic!!! Tell Hunter to try very hard (I know it is hard--I started homeschooling for sortof that reason) not to let it bother him. That she is tired and really needs an adjustment and hopefully someone else's parents will deal with it; if not to remember it is only for one hour of the day and not ALL DAY!
Dayne's third grade year a teacher called him out for being in the restroom too long n front of the entire classroom. He had had a BM and he was soooo embarassed!! and she gave him punishwork (multiplication tables--he still hates multiplication to this day!). he came home and cried his heart out for at least an hour!
Words cut so much more than a physcial slap and so many people don't even realize how they hurt a person!!!
I hope he has a better day!!!
and a great weekend to all!!!!

Oh Jen, I am so sorry. I know that surgery isn't something that anyone looks forward to but it sounds like this is going to help him out a lot.

My niece had been going to the same doctor for years and years. She was greatly overweight so she went to a doctor who specialized in stomach stapling. He requested her records from her old doctor. Come to find out, she was diabetic. How did he know? Because her old doctor ran tests three years ago and the results came back that she had diabetes. Did the doctor tell her? No. That kinda stuff pisses me off to the nnnnth degree.

Will you have to get someone to help you around the farm? Or do you have enough help already?

I'm saying a prayer for your entire family right now.

Lisa

Thought I'd give you guys a school report. Hunter took the $5.00 check to his English teacher. He told her he was sorry for any mixup and asked her when she handed out the workbooks. She said that she didn't know. You'll remember that he was out on Friday. I bet dollars to donuts that's when she handed them out and didn't want to admit it. Anyway, he said she was nicer to him this time. He still didn't get a workbook though. The office said it would probably be Monday before he got one. Gosh, I didn't want school to start out this way.

Oh and I meant to tell you what I did last night.

When we were at Main Street Bakery, they had large Mickey head rice crispy treats but they were $10.95 each. Lacey wanted to get some to take back to her fellow students but would have had to buy three of them. I told her I had a Mickey shaped cake pan at home and I'd make them some.

The pan I have is heart shaped with a large Mickey had embossed in it. I made two regular rice crispy treats and one chocolate and regular mixed together. I have them in a box ready for the postman to pick up.

Connie, Ashton's Mickey is on it's way to you. The post office website label printing option was down for two days so I couldn't print out a label. But, he should have it soon.
