Update on Romancechick’s family:

The Girl came home from school yesterday…okay, she came home from a bowling match…actually, I drove her home yesterday after the bowling and she told me that she thought she’d failed her biology test and then she checked Edline and found out that her biology teacher gave her zeroes for work that she missed because of absences and away bowling matches. The teacher promised her time to make up the stuff but never did, and the Girl (and her parents) felt that was unfair. This all came out at prayer time when she was tired and she started crying and telling us that she was stupid and “can’t learn anything.” This from a girl with a 3.5 GPA in the core courses she needs for college!

After the kids were in bed, I did some stuff on the computer and had to stick a couple of things in the mailbox. While there I found a letter from the high school addressed to her. Since nothing comes from the school that Beloved and I don’t have to sign or something, I opened it. It was a letter telling her that she’d been nominated for the National Honor Society.

Yep, she’s stupid and can’t learn.

The Boy got two greens so far this week, but yesterday he was in the sad jar. Today he got a yellow, so that’s three goods for the week. Normally, that means a trip to Chick-fil-a for him. He gets to play in the playplace and Mommy gets to write for a couple of hours without laundry or disorganization calling my name. I don’t know if it’ll happen this weekend after all because Beloved’s best friend from grad school, Atheist/Pro-Choice Guy, is coming tomorrow and staying for about five days. Also on Saturday around lunch time, my uncle and aunt, whose daughter lives in Texas, are stopping by for a few hours.

My back is feeling better, but I have to see the chiropractor tomorrow. I’m almost finished with chapter 16 of Sword & Illusion. I don’t know if I’m on track for getting this thing done and out the door by June, but I’m working on it.

Oh, I’m going to be at the Subway in Watson, LA, on April 5 for another booksigning. Check this space for more details.
