Today is school sign ups. Yep, that time again. We home school. Planning for next year started 2 weeks ago. Now to go to our group, get a number, be herded like cattle, all so we can get the classes we want.
I also have to get van through inspection, tags, Walmart--need a copy of a picture that has to be turned in today, (thought I did that already), pick up kids by 2, have 1 dropped off at 5 - picked up at 7ish, get uniform ready to work the Zoo in the morning, make sure DS has his Scout and other things ready for his early day tomorrow.
Need to coordinate transportation for DD to a from a class in the early afternoon tomorrow. Why not let her do it? She doesn't want to go to this class in the first place.
I'm tired and I haven't left yet. Yep, still in pjs. LOVE MY PJS! Can't we just pretend we did it all already and climb under the covers where its safe and the people in my head are all friendly?
Just to give you a fun fact about sign up day at our school group: People are rude, hateful, unkind, unsmiling, condescending, back stabbing, .......Why do we go here? Because in the home schools in this area you end up with a GED. NOT this one. A real live High School Diploma is the carrot at the end of all this grief. Yep, that's my motivation. My eye is on the prize. So get out of my way. I've been preparing for today for a month. I have on my boxing gloves ready for the fight today.
I plan to leave this day victorious.
There will be no tears from me today. I will not lose my temper. I will be sweet unless pushed too far. I WILL STAND UP FOR ME AND MY KIDS TODAY! I WILL NOT BE BULLIED BY THESE PEOPLE.
Now to go into the ring.
