losing my mind
Ack, I feel like I am in the midst of an Alzheimers moment. (or week) There is so much going on around here that I feel like I am be pulled in many directions.
The kindergarten situation around here has been very stressful to me. We thought we were all set and everything would be good to go with Hannah attending the same school she goes to now which is a private parochial school. I worked the open enrollment day and turn out was great, for all classes BUT kindergarten so currently there is very low enrollment. Whether or not there will be a kinder class there is still unknown so rather than wait until so late in the summer and the possibility of scrambling around (more than now) we decided we had better enroll her in the public schools as a safety net.
Well, last week I learned that where we live is zoned to the worst school in the district. It is also an under performing school and not in the best part of town. Needless to say, there is NO WAY she is going there. H is very bright, she is reading, spelling and socially advanced. She needs to be in a class where she will be challenged and she can learn. We have been all set to go do battle with the district to get her transferred to a better school but of course, I, in all my spaciness have misplaced her birth certificate and immunization records. Enter world's most patient husband who has been running all over obtaining copies. I feel so bad.. I feel like a flake. I am so worried about all of this it is practically all I can think of.
(update: another phone call to one of our CHOSEN schools and it looks like the girl I talked to at the district gave me mis-information.. ok I feel a little better.. we still need to get over there and sign her up)
In other news, I have been BUSY. Brian (aka MrDoodle) and I have finished up Cerri's website. She will be busy with it and says she plans to have the Grand Opening by the end of the month. Its so cute, I hope you will all check it out. We are waiting for some feedback on the final draft of Jenn's site and then on to two more. I have been doing some behind the scenes work with a couple of wonderful girls, Jennifer & Natasha, and I can't wait to reveal the things we have been cooking up. I can share this new banner I squeezed in for my pal Kim's blog though. She is so much fun to work for because she just says, "Hey Heather, I am ready for a new banner" and let's me do whatever my heart desires. I know she loves fairies and collects Kirk's Folly so I went with this for this time. She LOVED it so that makes me very happy.
Hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been blog hopping much lately. I am afraid to open up my Google reader.. I bet there are 100's of posts to catch up on. I keep missing my OK friends on chat and so wanted to wish Holly a Happy Birthday in "person" yesterday. I guess I got the next best thing though, by having Brian tell her. Happy Birthday Sweetie!! And Donna, I miss you!!!
