middle school grades



Daughter got her mid-semester grades.  All were right on target, except for one, which did not surprise her at all.  It did surprise me, though, and anger me as well.  Time for our quarterly punishments -- including parental controls on the electromic's; grounding; limiting/removing TV from daily schedule; deleting Anime from reading list.  I think that's it!  All until her outstanding projects are caught up!

family stress



Dinner planned w/Sam's Dad, my Dad, Sam and myself.  Nothing but stress.  Learned that my 50th b-day gift will be half of what I had planned on and that Dad claims the extension was all my idea, not his at all.  One of those situations where I really question my own brain.  Did he call me to a lunchoen and requerst I postppone the gift because his finances took a major hit Aug - Nov 2008?  Or did I say to him that since I wanted a Dec/Jan trip that I wanted to wai until 2009 -- his assessment of the situation.  Will I ever know for sure?

Could not get daughter to wake this a.m.  Huge issue before winter break--threatening my ability to be guardian parent.  promised that she would be up and on time every day of second quarter.  had to have her call in sick.  not happy at all about it.
