Bad Hair Day + Nothing to Wear = Grumpy Me!
Ugh - I have been in a funk/bad mood all week, much to the delight of my family I am sure! There are just too many commitments, not enough sleep, etc. Something has gotta give, but what I am not sure. I am so ready for this week to be over. Thank goodness it is Thursday. To top it all off I leave for Atlanta on Sunday for a conference. Maybe a few days away is what I need since part of my funk/bad mood is caused by the other people in my house (what can I say, I am honest)!
Speaking of those people, Chatty has a report to do on an animal and their habitat. They were able to choose an animal from one of the following habitats: prairie, forest (not rain forest though), underground and pond. So what does she choose?? Bet you will never guess ... CATFISH! Random yes but she swears she loves them since my parents have a small one in a a fish tank at their house (long story). So we started researching and all we could find was stuff on mammoth catfish that can eat people whole ... ummm no. With much discussion and argument (she's a stubborn one like her mamma), we finally helped her choose a different animal ... the Bald Eagle! Way cooler and much easier to research. She has to write a report, cite her resources, make a poster/diagram/etc. and present it all in class next week (all in 1st grade). I don't care what the stupid polls say, she is getting a top notch education and it is a public school!!
She completed her outline and wrote her report (I was so proud of her - she worked so hard on it). We even sketched how she wants the poster to look. I told her I would help her get her poster completed on Saturday so Mr. ESPN doesn't have to worry about it next week while I am gone. He and Bia can just listen to her practice her presentation (can you picture it??? I am sure Bia will be interrupting every 5 seconds).
Ok - off to get a Diet Coke ... that will surely improve my mood!!
