School is still sucking for my 6th grader but the good news is she is the next kid on the waiting list for a really great school. It's a private school that I really believe is a great fit for her. I have always been a huge supporter of the public school system - but as things stand I can't wait to get out of it. 60 kids in one class, 40 in honors science, it's just to many. Her smallest class is honors English and she has 33, which is still to crowded. Over 600 6th graders crammed into a historic Elementary building is over the top. They are the only grade in the building but I'm pretty sure back a million years ago when it was built it was meant for more like 200 kids. So now we wait for a spot to open. That means somebody needs to move, or get divorced or get kicked out - something! I am to afraid of the karma that my wishing any of these things on a family might bring so I am hoping and praying some family gets a great promotion that they can't pass up and have to move away for - and then my child gets their spot! As far as the public school crisis goes... if anyone out there thinks that Rick P would be a good choice for president please email and I can give a long list of reasons why he would SUCK at it. I am living in his state, and he has done nothing for our public schools. Plus he's just a complete clown. I feel pretty certain that the four people who actually read this blog are way to smart to vote for that nutcase!
We have been in the throws of remodeling our 90+ year old home for the last 9 weeks and it's been a mix of greatness and hell. I love that the popcorn ceilings are gone and that everything has been repainted - I HATE the dust that it created. I love that the old original bathroom has been remodeled and is beautiful but I can't believe how much crack I've had to see everytime I peaked in to see the workers progress. I can't imagine for the life of me why men don't care that their crack shows. One of the workers was so in love with my dog and I caught him sitting
I've fallen behind on reading a few blogs that I really enjoy so I'm going to catch up and see whats been going on in their lives and leave comments and show them some love.
I'll leave you with a picture of the dog loving worker - cutting tiles with no crack showing. Your welcome.
