i don't understand

why would you do your homework, only to NOT turn it in, and get crappy grades, especially when you have proven you know the work? that's the case with Liam and half his classes. in math in particular (he's getting a D) the teacher says his quiz grades average to an 89%. that is emminently acceptable. she said that it shows he knows what he's doing. however, he's missing 8 assignments, and has only turned in 6 of 23 warm ups (they do quick math at the beginning of the class). hence the D. and he has math homework every day. and we ride him on it. is this his idea of rebellion? all it's earning him is no video games or tv, and us being that much harder on him. i just don't get it. i didn't do this in jr high.

sean has come up with more stuff his BF did to him, so mark had to report it to CPS at the behest of the therapist. it's one more nail in that SOB's coffin tomorrow.

i started the 5 hour baby boy sweater last night, and got quite a ways with it tonight, only to have to frog the whole bloody thing. i missed counts some where, so when i got to dividing for fronts, sleeves and back, the count was way off. sigh. so now i'm back to row 5. no pics yet, i'm thinking i 'm going to buy (yet another ) pack of rechargeable batteries tomorrow, and hide these. sigh.

i had a migraine all day, and didn't start feeling better until i talked to mark on my afternoon break. hmmm. he really is my sunshine. i thank god for him.

You might be a redneck if the uninvited guests at your family reunion were the SWAT team.

Pattern of the Day: 10-10 Chill Chasers Scarf. there ya go, the sensible bit to this combo. i still dont' see where the wrap fits in, lol.

10-11: Dayna Raglan T-Neck Pullover. i like this. it's oversized, and apparently made with one HUGE skein of dayna which is 78% mohair, 13 % wool, and 9% nylon. i could do this!

oh and btw, since i didn't blog yesterday, happy thanksgiving to all the canadians out there!

and rose's husband passed away on saturday, and there are rumors running around that cheryl's son passed away friday night. he never got the hat. :*(
Have a nice day!

Hi Minnie,

It's Renata from AC4C. I feel your frustation about homework that gets done and doesn't get turned in. My stepson does EXACTLY the same thing, and is also getting a D in math. Like your son, he is also grounded from TV, VCR, & Playstation. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in this respect. That's so sad that Cheryl's son passed away so young.
