i hate mondays.

yesterday was not a good day. i almost had to break out my AK.

on my way to a meeting with the teen's counselor to discuss her classes for the rest of her high school career, i found myself stopped about 1/4 of a mile away from the school with this behind me:

apparently, with my mind wandering to daydreams of the teen finding a sport that she loves and being so motivated by the new friends she made that she was pulling straight As, i'd failed to come to a full and complete stop. balls!

the meeting was fine - we went over the requirements for graduation as well as those for acceptance into both private and state-run colleges. a lot has changed since i was looking at all of these options - the application process is much simpler, but now weighs primarily on GPA. yikes.

    Was there ever a time when college admissions wasn't based largely on GPA?

  5. That really stinks. But hopefully the Teen is started down a renewed path. I hope so!

  6. She still has time to pull up her GPA in time for college applications. I'm sorry to hear about the ticket :( That totally sucks. I love that you took a picture of the scene though. That takes guts.


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

a very, very full first day of fun

so since it was super early and our room wasn't ready for us to crash in, we went ahead and made our way to the magic kingdom.  we had f...
