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.
later, as i attempted to pull up a recipe for chicken tortilla soup that i'd planned on making for dinner, i found that our internet was down. and nothing i did would fix it. i'm currently on hold with customer service - fifteen minutes and counting.
monday = FAIL.
