365 Day Photo Challenge ~Day 2~


Yep. You guessed it. I almost forgot.

Anyway, with 27 minutes (in my time zone) to spare, here is a picture of my sleepy, old dog, Goldie. Who is obviously NOT amused that I’m taking her picture.

This one isn’t such a great photo, it’s just from my iPhone, but hey, it works, right?

I wanted to get out and take some pictures today, but yesterday I took a 3.32 mile walk and fuck if I don’t hurt today.

Then around noon my oldest son’s school called. He didn’t want to do anything at school, so I was to go pick him up.

Yep. You heard that right.

My 13 year old didn’t want to do anything at school. So they made me bring him home.

The principal just walked away from me when I told her that if he didn’t feel like going to school tomorrow, I was just going to leave him home. It seems like it’s the thing to do.

I mean, if she can send him home because he doesn’t want to be there, can’t I keep him home if he doesn’t want to go?

Oh yeah, I guess not. Something about the law here says I’ll get fined or sent to jail if one of my children exceeds 10 days of unexcused absences. And they take it seriously here.

I guess only the school gets to take the easy way out.

Oh, I'd make that kid's life bloody hell for coming home.

And what kind of solution is that at the school??! They don't have answers to kids like that in the middle school???! Like he's the first 13 year old who doesn't want to do something??

I'd tell them to figure it out because that is why they EARN THE BIG BUCKS. idiots.
