Good morning, or almost afternoon.  Emma didn't want to get up this morning.  Then I had to call over and get a "no ticket" thing for my car, or Jordyn's car, in the employee parking garage.  I didn't get one yesterday, just plain forgot, and got a parking ticket. Embarassed  I have a bunch of projects to work on, a telephone conference at 1:00 and I promised the kids I would take them to the pool after work if they were good.  They are both giving me so many issues going to bed at night, and then getting up in the morning from being tired, hoping the pool will help with that.  I am hoping my truck is ready for pick up tonight also.  Jordyn had a dental cleaning toda, was not happy about it, and she needs to book her flight for her summer introduction weekend at college.  The prices almost doubled since we looked at flights a month ago, but we couldn't book the flight until we had the snail mail letter confirming that she got the weekend she asked for. Frown  I am going easy for dinner, I am picking up a lunch time special at the pizza place and then letting the kids have cold pizza for dinner, I'll make something for myself when we get home from the pool.  Easy on me...

Have a good one.

Cheryl, look at my post on FB. I got a book in the mail yesterday hoping to help me get my kids away from this sense of entitlement they have. Working on it this summer big time.

Nt a good morning.  I have lost my parking car badge.  With all this car sharing with Tim It has gone missing.  I am upset and not sure I can even get a new one.  I'll probably have to pay for it this time, grrrrr...  I just have no idea where it could be.  I'll be looking at home real good cause I did stick it in my purse yesterday morning and it's quite possible I pulled it out with my keys when I pull them from my purse before leaving and just missed that I had done that.  It could be in our bonus room or the garage.  Hope so.  I've got some follow up on paperwork today and for now that is all.  Not sure about dinner.  Forgot to lay anything out.  I'll need to call the kids to do that for me.

I'm about to disown a very snarky, pain in the butt 16 year old girl.  I will trade if anyone wants me to. 

So over the attitude.  She is nothing but nasty to Kristen 24/7.  I have HAD IT.  And I try to tell Kristen to just let it go- who is the adult here who's been at college for a year?  And she just doesn't get it and lets Becca push every single button she has. I wish I knew what was going on.  I wonder if some of it is out of the 4 kids she's grown up with (Kristen Kate and Trev) she is now the ONLY one in high school- Trev will graduate a week from tomorrow and is going off to school in the fall.  It's been a rough year.  I understand.  This semester has been hard.  But crud- we are letting her do the whole Govenor's school thing next year where the kids get an incredible amount of freedom! 

She gets mad that we won't let her drive there.  Um- licence for 2 months- downtown Norfolk at rush hour driving home (BTDT NOT pretty) Don't think so. 

Today it was the dang driving log.  Didn't have to pass one in for Kristen.  I've got one made- on a spreadsheet.  Did the driver's ed teacher take it this morning?  Nope.  So "I" had to go home, search on the DMV site for a stupid log, and then had to fill it out, making sure the entire 45 hours were logged.  SIGH.  And of course it's all MY fault and MY responsibility.   Arrrrgggh. 

She wants to drive into school tomorrow.  Because she can.  Because Trev has exempted out of his finals and doesn't have to go to school.  There is a tropical storm bearing down on us, and it will be here tomorrow.  She has NO experience driving in those conditions.  Is she driving to school by herself?  Don't think so.  I'd like to let her drive with me (I do that a lot with Kristen with driving conditions she's not done-  and she's 19!). 

I'm going to monitor how this summer goes.  If she's really snarky all summer- she may not have car privleges for school next year.  Yeah- it would be a pain for me.  But gee- that's why we have- SCHOOL BUSSES.  And she can sit outside when the bus drops her off at school after Govenor's school and someone can pick her up.  Over this whole entitlement thing.  She does NOT pay insurance, last time I looked the title to the van was in dh's name- NOT HERS. 

Ok over my rant now.  How many more years until graduation?  LOLOL

We all overslept and now the morning is going to be rather hectic.  We've attending the last homeschool skate of this school year which will eat up most of our day.  I was hoping to make ti to the grocery store this morning, but not happening.  I'm suppose to bring lunch, but have no idea what since we have pop and onions in the fridge!  Zeph is doing chores and I'm about to get showered and ready to go.  Hoping for him to do an online history lesson before we leave and to take a vocabulary test also.  We'll see.  He's hoping to play Minecraft.  Bowling tonight (again different league).  DH has some odds and ends to do around the house and I am hoping he will take the pups in for a nail trim.  It is first day back at work too.
