though my life is pretty much the same. School, work, Pooka stuff, sleep, eat, blah blah blah, repeat.
Tomorrow is my last midterm. YAY! It really does feel like I am taking some sort of test every other day. :-(It's an open note test which isn't a good thing believe it or not.
My one and only 3 week break in the entire program starts on 7/23 or whatever date Friday lands on. After those classes are over I plan to be away from my typical life for at least one entire week. I am hoping it will be on without technology as well. We will see how that works out. I'll probably work the other 2 weeks...maybe. Thinking about this break next month is keeping me sane.
Pooka's last day of school was today! She brought home her report card and everything looked good. There is always room for improvement but I liked what I saw. That pretty word "Promotion" was at the bottom of her report card too so that means I am officially the parent of a 4th grader! YAY!
Two younger than Pooka kids moved in across the way and have become friends with Pooka. As soon as they see my car park and us come in I can almost predict when the doorbell will ring or hear a knock at my door! LOL! Normally it's all good, but today around 8:30 (Pooka always has to be in by 8, her buddies know this) one of the little girls rang the doorbell once every 5 secs till I got to the door. She asked me if Pooka could come out.
"No, she is in for the night"
*30 secs of crickets cuz" this question threw me off*
"Because it's her bedtime"
"I don't have a bedtime"
"That good, but Pooka does. It's starting to get dark so you should be headed home."
"What about tomorrow at 3 o'clock?"
"She won't be here then"
"Ok" and she trails off on her bike.
WTH????? 1) I don't care how old you are, don't question me about why my child can't go outside because in all honesty...I don't need a reason! 2) Why don't your too young to not have a bedtime have a bedtime? I hope and pray her parents have her come inside at a decent hour. My neighborhood
isn't bad but children their age should be inside BEFORE the street lights come on. When Pooka gets to middle school age I may change my mind. Period.
Pooka and her tae kwon do crew are slowly starting that talk on the phone thing. I have a suspicion that Pooka is not going to be much of a phone talker! LOL! This past weekend her bff (at the moment) called and cracked me up! My phone rings....
"Ummmm who would you like to speak to?"
*me thinking this kid had the wrong number* "Karen doesn't live here sweetheart"
"Oh, hi Karen. (connecting the dots) you want to talk to Pooka?" This is when I started cracking up on the inside because she is yelling names like she is a cheerleader! ROFL
They talk for about 2 minutes if that and that was it! Pooka is slowly moving on up in the social category. I can dig it.
I got a blast from the past voicemail the other day. It was one of those "wow they still have my number" type deals. LOL! I haven't responded to the call mostly because I don't have the time to sit and play catch up right now.
My mom got her cast off Wednesday! YAY! She can already bend her knee! Pretty darn awesome! :-)
Ummmm what else? Oh I have a mini mountain of clothes that need to be washed! So at some point this weekend I'll be at the laundromat! You sooooo wanted to know that! LOL!
That will be all. Carry on! :-)
