This will be my last post before my departure... sniff sniff... Friday Fragments is just the way to leave-
keep you wanting more terribly confused and baffled by my randomness! You can join in on the sketchy fun over at Mrs. 4444's.
*** This has truly been a tough week. My daughter has really been struggling in her 4th grade year and it's very disconcerting. She was an 'A' and 'B' student till this year. She is now straddling 'D' and 'F' in 3 classes! We are beside ourselves and are not satisfied with the lack of communication from the teacher. This is the year at this school where they start expecting independent study and really start sticking it to 'em. The way it was put to me: The are no longer learning to read, they're reading to learn. I bring this up because it is troubling me and is on my mind, but also, I know there are a few teachers that stop by. If you have any suggestions... I would love to hear them.
*** I have a guest excerpt over at Annie's place today. That's right, it's about politics. But wait, Annie made me play nice. I couldn't even SAY the opposing candidate's name or policies- let me know how you think I did. It's definitely worth going over to read. Play nice and politics usually are not synonymous!
*** I have not packed.
*** I am hungry, but I have lost 6LBS this week! My mom just called me from Alabama and told me there is a cold front moving into Gulf Shores and the highs will be in the 70's while we're there!!! Seriously? I have been starving myself so I could wear a stinking swimsuit and summery clothes and now I have to pack my sweatshirts and capris- something just ain't fair- pass me a damn donut!
***I have spent way too much time on the computer this week. I had this cockamamie (got that word from McCain) idea of a contest and have been spending the wee hours drafting and scheduling all of these posts- what was I thinking?
*** I'm wondering what my place will look like when I come back. I'm hoping to come back to legitimate comments and not TWITTERING on my comment section-GIRLS! Remember I am 71% bitch!
*** Speaking of 71% Bitch- did anyone notice that the title of that post equalled 101%? Or are ya'll bad at math, too? Confession- I used a freaking calculator AND STILL GOT IT WRONG- and I wonder why my daughter is struggling!
*** On the topic of Why didn't I think of that? Amelia Bedelia asked if there were extra points for putting the badge on your blog. Man, that's brilliant- just another reason I don't do contests- I suck at rules and am not brilliant!
***Google Analytics and I have had a falling out. Sure "Stay at home moms masturbating" is a thing of beauty and GA is the only one that may provide that kind of richness. However, my numbers have FLAT LINED since Oct.6- Nada, nilche, nunya (as my dad says and thinks he's sooo funny- nunya what, dad ? Nunya damn business! If I've heard that once , I've heard that a billion times from him) Anyway GA + my blog = zero visitors. Come on, I know I suck, but that's a little harsh, don't you think? Why do they hate me? I'm not sure. So I've left GA and am attempting Sitemeter, we'll see how he treats me.
*** Don't forget me- puhlease! I'll return with some batshit crazy stories and it may be entertaining or it may not. I'll miss you all!
