She finally went out the door... after being insufferably nasty to me.
I am sooooooooooo exhausted!
If Sarah doesn't get a move on, she's going to miss the bus today.
I gave up and drove the car yesterday. I'm glad I don't have school today.

I read the wrong day's selection on Wednesday, then had to read the right one. On the positive side of that, I've read what I need to for Tuesday, so now all I need to do is study for the quiz.

I'm getting very tired. Walking to and from the bus stop with a heavy backpack is exhausting... and apparently the car's not going to be repaired for ANOTHER week. They want it dropped off on a Monday or Tuesday... who cares what they want? It is ridiculous that we should be inconvenienced like this. We are not the ones who wrecked our car... we were rear-ended... the victims in the situation. They say the car is driveable, but with a taillight out I don't want to risk getting a ticket.

Frankie is treating me like dirt, and I'm tired of it. His girlfriend has become the center of his universe, and when I tell him to do something or not to do something, he just waits 'til I go to school then does as he pleases because he knows his father will let him do whatever he wants. This causes further tension between Bob and myself as I think he's entirely too lenient and permissive (read "doormat") and it just makes me sick. Divorce wouldn't help either, because then he would have even MORE license to spoil them when it was his turn to have them. Back to the old statement: I'd rather be a widow than a divorcee...

I talked to the doctor's office yesterday and they said I had to go through the emergency room for an accident-related injury. She did say I could try calling the orthopedic surgeon's office and find out if they would see me without going to the ER first... but either way, I don't really feel like going when I have so many other things to do. My neck still hurts, but I keep hoping it will diminish over time.

I managed to get to school on time riding the bus... but I jumped the gun and ended up getting off two stops too soon because I was so afraid I'd OVERSHOOT and MISS my stop. I don't know why it stresses me out so much. There's plenty of stops along the way, and if I miss one I'm perfectly capable of walking a block or two...

My neck still hurts... I may see about going to a doctor today. I just don't want to sit in the emergency room at the hospital for eight hours, running the risk of catching a communicable disease...
Today is going to be a tough one. I'm going to have to ride the bus to school for the first time, and I'm nervous about getting to school on time. I'll be glad when this day is over. I wonder how long it'll be before our car is fixed.

It started out this morning, when I got upset because my husband stated the intent to take my son to get his learner's permit (for driving) Without consulting with me, and against my wishes... As it will add $250/month to our car insurance cost... for Frank to practice driving, he has to be on our insurance policy.
So THEN we went to the cub scout picnic, and on the way, Joanna (Frank's girlfriend) who came to help transport us all, cuz we don't all fit in our car... hit us (we had a car accident) So now our taillight is broken and the trunk of the car won't close.
I think Sarah (my oldest daughter) and I have whiplash, but I'm waiting 'til we've slept a night before going to have it checked out, because sometimes if they check you out too soon nothing shows up.
Well, the GOOD part is, now Frank is committed to getting a job to pay his own share of the car insurance rather than ME having to get a job and leave the baby for 12 hours a day (8 to work, 4 for school... plus more for travel time, really...)
I'm still not certain we'll get by without me getting a job soon... I don't know if we'll have to pay a deductable to have our car repaired, or if that will all be covered by Joanna's policy...
We need $48 for the boys' photo packages, and Sarah wants us to get pizza for her class for her presentation on the same day as the boys school pictures... so that'll be another $30 or so...
It (the car accident) was Joanna's fault. I stopped to let oncoming traffic enter the expressway ahead of us, and she thought I was going to go ahead and jump in front of them (perhaps because that's what SHE would have done?) Which makes me concerned about Frank driving around with her... I had already previously noted her tendency to speed...
I am really stressed out tonight :-(
Badddddddddddddddddddddddddd day.

I have so much to do today, and all I want to do is go back to bed. I have a dental checkup at 10 am, and a mountain of laundry... not to mention dishes... the rest of the house is a mess, too. Plus I need to do some reading for school. But I'll take it all in stride. After the dentist, I'd like to get a nap before I start trying to do anything else, but I can only do that if the baby will lie down with me.
Okay. She FINALLY got up... but she's being nasty to me. : (
It is SO hard to get Sarah up in the morning... even if she's had a nap after school the day before!
I am enjoying school, but I'm glad it's only four days a week. I'm exhausted!

My first day of school went well... Selena didn't seem to miss me a bit. We'll see how she acts by the fourth day...
