Honestly, I don't think I'm in a bad mood. I mean, I think I feel fine and am in a pretty decent mood. But maybe I'm actually grumpy because all I want to do is b*tch.
I think my daughter's classroom has too many teachers. Nobody is checking her folders or backpack or anything. It's terrible. Yes, they do work on the assumption that 4th graders are old enough to be responsible for their work and assignments, etc. But they also know that my girl has autism. I guess it's time I remind them that means she needs more help than a lot of their other students. The last 3 school days she's come home with nothing written in her communications agenda. The worksheet that usually comes home on Monday was not in her homework folder. Her assignments absolutely must be written down in painful detail because she is not going to remember it by the time she gets home!
Then after school, because she apparently had no homework again, I took her up to an empty parking lot to let her ride her bike and we got home just in time to see the apartment manager coming out of my apartment where my son had been home alone! I greeted them with, "Hi, minor son home alone. Can I help you?" The good news is I had finished mopping and all the toys were put away so they're going to leave me alone now. I'm trying to calm myself down but they have severely annoyed me. I had planned to follow them around with my phone recording everything and making snarky comments like "So did my disabled child put her toys away to your satisfaction now?" or "Oh, gee, I've left my bathmat on the floor. Is that a problem?"
And when I was folding my laundry, my little black furball curled up on my workout pants! Oh well. At least it wasn't a towel or a white shirt.
Oh, I know what's wrong with me tonight! I'm so sleepy! Last night it was midnight before I went to sleep and I overslept this morning! I didn't get up until 6... yikes! Another minute and girly girl would have been sitting outside my door crying because I wasn't there when she woke up! I think I'm just going to sign off now and be in bed by 1015. Sweet dreams!
