How good to c you!
I'm amazed that your DD went back to Cath school, but I'm sure you are relieved. And how much simpler to have all 3 in the same school! My DD started 8th grade and seems to find it terribly dull. One of the stupidest things about it I must agree with her: One of her classes is Teen Skills which I assume is sex ed, consumer ed, values, drug avoidance, that sort of thing. This lasts a semester. At the same time in her science class, they have, instead of something worthwhile, like SCIENCE
for instance, for the next 6 weeks, the guidance counselor is teaching "Life Skills", much like last year and the year before. Values, drug avoidance, that sort of thing. Gee, does that sound just A LITTLE BIT REDUNDANT???????
Sometimes I wish we had pulled her out this year and gone sailing. She wouldn't have even had to do home schooling, because she wouldn't have missed anything!
Rant, rant, rant. I watched a stupid movie last night. 3000 Miles to Graceland
It was sort of amusing at the beginning, but it went downhill and just became stupidly bloody. Much like, in fact almost exactly like, Reindeer Games
, if you've seen that. The best thing about the movie was the ending credits where Kurt Russell was singing an Elvis song in his very tight white Elvis pants. It even had Kevin Costner in it, who I generally love, and he was blah.
I am reading a science fiction series that DH really liked. It's the Riverworld series by Phillip Jose someone or other. Sort of interesting. But you notice I'm hanging around here, not devouring the printed page. The amusing thing about it is that it was written about 30 years ago and keeps referring to things that were "commonplace by 2002" which definitely aren't happening. Like making metal out of energy. And an alien on TV.
