Workin' Mama /Kristian Unplugged
I'm finally starting to get the hang of the early starts, although as you can tell by the 'coke vs milk' incident, I'm still having the occasional mental lapse a-la sleep deprivation. But hey, work is work and by and large it's pretty good.
Unlike grade nine, which is driving me round the twist. Kit is pretty much on top of things for the most part, although he did manage to delete the only copy of his 1000 word SOSE assignment this afternoon, which led to much wailing and gnashing of teeth as he spent a fruitless hour trying to recover it before giving up and rewriting it....from memory, might I add. Scary child. The worst thing about high school homework is the way it takes over the entire house. We seem to exist in a constant bubble of frustration/exhaustion/aggravation that lasts for the duration of the assesment period. By the time the work gets handed in, we're all fit to collapse. The only thing that keeps me from going completely mad is the fact that at least he's not old enough to apply for a learners permit. That one'll finish me off. Yeesh.
