    Ya, that is exactly where my DD and I have been for the last 5-6 months, we listen, we cry. Now we all wait. No matter where the little tyke goes "home" to, she is perfect and beautiful.

This week we were introduced to all 206 bones in the body and are expected to learn all of their scientific names and locations within the body. We will not be quizzed over them- the only place we will see them is on the midterm. My rant is this- teacher says they will only account for 1/4 of the exam, so about 12 or 13 questions. Why the heck am I supposed to study 206 different bones/names/locations for 13 darn questions??? On top of all of the other material that I need to study...couldn't you have narrowed it down to even a quarter of that amount and highlighted which ones were more important?? If I try studying all of them, I will probably take nothing in..if I pick random ones to study, the ones I haven't studied will probably be the ones that show up on the test. Don't you think when introducing an amount of material this large, students should have more than 7 days to take it in and learn it? Oy. I am not normally one to complain about school work, I understand I am in my final semester of college and the work load will not be light...but seriously, this plan really doesn't seem as though it was thought out.
    Ugh. Even if it is only 1/4 of your grade that 1/4 could certainly break you. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around instructors like that. My DD had one in one of her math classes last semester. He kept teaching right up to the Final, with only one day between and that material was on the final. No way of knowing if she grasped the material.

    Oy is right. More Pixie Dust.

He was just standing there... didn't even flinch when I drove around him. I got about 50 yards away and looked in my mirror to see him flying away (else I would've questioned if I was the butt of a joke with a toy owl or something). It was wild (no pun intended).

    I went out to look at myths and superstitions re: owls. Either I'm going to die, have really bad luck, really great luck, come into money, have a newborn turn into a witch or I just saw an owl and it meant nothing.
    Isn't that unnerving! They are big birds. We have a lot of big birds around here, many forests so, hawks, owls, their wing spans are amazing. I'm not a bird person but it is so cool to see those wings spread out. If I am remembering correctly, there is about 6 eagles that have made there home right outside of a library for the last few weeks. Eagles we don't see a lot of, so six would be amazing.
    People are driving to see the latest tourist attraction. They can just go in the library and look out the huge plate glass window and watch the eagles. I did think about driving there but ultimately didn't.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    And then I make the mistake of reading my email before I go to sleep. I get this from my girlfriend. Her son is my DD's age.

    Matt forgets key, so instead of waiting or getting the key from neighbor he decides to climb through basement window and the glass breaks. Went through 2 tendons, an artery, chipped a bone and had to have major surgery and 100 stitches. Then had post surgery problems, a pulmonary edema and phenomena How are your kids doing?

    Oy. On that note. Time for sleep.

    She needs all the prayers and pixie the world can send right now.
    Well, bless her heart, either way it is the right decision for her. Hope her and her family have peace in the decision making process. And with the outcome.

    It is never easy, but if she decides to keep the baby, i hope he contributes in some way.

    My in laws are on their way to Orlando, where they will over night and drive to Miami to board the ship on Saturday morning. My MIL acted as if they would never see us again. I hope they have fun.

    The weather is cloudy here, but warm and there are bursts of bright sunshine. Hope the cold is over for several months.

    P&P Coming your way!! Ugh... lawyers... I'm dealing with one now who doesn't seem to want to have to work for the $1600 she's charging me. Trying to figure that out.
