Karma Is A Bitch........

Hey all well the morning didn't start off as well as I had wanted it to. See what happens when you get overly excited about the kids going off to school and having the house all to yourself. Karma comes along and slaps you right in the pie hole.

The kids get up with no problems my daughter is actually excited about going to school and wakes up with a smile on her face and says "woo hoo it's the first day of school". Hey what happened to my daughter was she replaced by aliens while she was sleeping? This is the same little girl who last year decided after 2 months of school that the teacher was an IDIOT and she was never going back. Let me tell you she absolutely meant it to. The next few weeks after this statement it was like a demon had taken over my daughters body in the mornings. She would throw herself on the floor and scream bloody murder and refused to get ready for school. I had to take her to the guidance office to ask them what I should do.They said she was going through what all 5 year olds do it was a power struggle and I needed to win it. Well good luck with that.It did get better over time but it was a long, long, long process.

Now back to this morning I get the kids ready we go to the bus stop at 6:30 a.m. to get the first bus no problem the bus is there at 6:35. So me and the boy sit there to wait for his bus to come and we wait and wait and wait. Guess what THE DAMN BUS NEVER CAME!!!!!!! Well a bus passed by at 6:40 but just kept going so I call the school they say "it's the first day and the bus is running a little late just wait a bit longer.I ask well what time is it supposed to come? It's supposed to be there at 6:57 and it's only 6:50 so I'm thinking oh ok I'm just being impatient.

There's no way the bus that passed by earlier could have been his bus that's what the lady at the school said. Well guess what lady YOU WERE WRONG!! It sure was his bus that just drove right on by.

I wound up having to drive him to school because after the third time of calling the school to find out where the bus was at 7:20.I find out the bus was at the school unloading the kids that he did pick up.

So I go in to the school to find out what the hell is going on and of course no one knows and someone has to check this and that. I was so pissed off my son was already having an anxiety attack about going into the middle school worrying about someone stuffing him into a trash can. He actually said that to me, see he is small for his age he is 11 and only weighs 65 lbs. So unfortunately his fears may be carried out by some 8th grade jock trying to impress his friends. All I can say is it had better not happen cause this mom don't play that!!!!

Now I'm stuck in an 80's music time warp and loving every single minute of it. I started off with some Bad Company "The way I Choose" Rock Steady" "Can't get Enough Of Your Love"
Move on to some Foreigner "Seventeen" "Blinded By Science"
Some Phil Collins "Mama" that song rocks. and now I am getting ready to put in some Zeppelin and chill out with some "Rain Song" and "Down By The Seaside" "In The Light" and pray to the lord above that the stupid ass bus driver remembers to bring my son home.......

Man that sucks! We found out last year that if my daughter is not there waiting to flag down the bus driver he will just drive by without stopping. And my daughter loves school - was devastated the one time she tried to chase down the bus after he drove right on by.
