Getting the router re-established, that is. I broke down yesterday morning and called a local company to ask about "house calls". He said they did, I explained my sitch and he said, "I can be there by 1 pm."
I was just hoping for something by Wednesday, so I was extra pleased. It meant I had to scrabble my schedule around and not do my usual Monday shopping, but I think I can hold off until Wednesday this week anyway.
Today, the Evil Twin and I have a meeting scheduled to talk to the school principal, the priest and if she can arrange it, Buddy's teacher. See, they all seem to think that because Buddy is a shy child and not involved with sports or extracurricular activities that this must mean that Buddy does not behave in socially appropriate ways.
It is such a long, drawn out and convoluted story that I am not going to rehash it here. Suffice to say that we believe they are making a mountain out of a molehill, but in a good faith effort, we have agreed to meet with them and discuss the situation.
Mainly, on our part, it's an attempt to let them see that we DO care about him and his welfare, we take the situations seriously and we are working (at home, with our own tools) to make things better.
Frankly, I think he's just emotionally immature for his age, but he's a boy and sometimes, these things take time. It doesn't mean we will ignore this and let him enter middle school completely unprepared and also enter as a target for bullies left and right.
So, we're doing that today and on Wednesday, the Evil Twin has been called in for Jury Duty. It doesn't mean he'll be chosen to serve, it just means he has to sit in the cattle call for possible duty. So, he'll be downtown all day and then, I can shop for groceries.
I am working hard at trying to find easy, nutritious, inexpensive - yet filling - meals that I can whip up on weekends. We've tended in the past to eat out far too often.
This is making grocery shopping a challenge for me and there's nothing I love more than a challenge.
Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself a bit. It's going to be a busy week - but that's preferable to being a boring week stuck inside because of snow or something.
All I know is that all is right with the household now that our router issues are resolved.
And because I'm in such a good mood, here's the gratuitous "Monday Mounds" pic for your pleasure (or disgust, if you hate cleavage - who would that be? Only one dick I sorta know of - more on that later).
The Evil Twin said my last cleavage shot was chintzy and I ripped off my readers by posting such a travesty. Perhaps this will make up for it.
