I’ve been waiting months on the school season to be over. Finally, the day arrived May 23rd. Unfortunately for my grand daughter, she has to attend summer school. She missed the mark in English by 2%. That sucked the wind right out of my sails. Not to mention, it dropped a large anchor on the plans I had for summer vacation. I was livid. We pay good money for her to attend a private Christian school. There wasn’t any good reason she could give me for the failing grade. I wasn’t going to let her get away with. She was suppose to attend drivers education in June. It was going to be her reward for passing. Unfortunately for her, no driving school. She has a bank account that’s going to be short a tuition. We also decided she was going to have to pay for summer school out of her own pocket. She was going to use that money to fix up the truck we were going to give her. Accountability is important. I hope she’ll learn something from it.
Looking on the bright side. I’m hoping this is going to be a worthy learning experience. Hopefully a mistake she won’t repeat in the future. Our summer won’t be a total loss. There will be plenty of opportunities to ride. She won’t have to attend school all day. One class can’t take that long. My husband had a heart attack a month ago. He had an other last weekend. They’re becoming more frequent as he get’s older. To top it all off, my mind is completely fried from worry and lack of sleep. Taking a short leave of absence from work is going to be a necessary thing. I need my sanity back. Thankfully, my boss is caring and understanding. She’s a lovely person. I love my job, and the people I work with. I’m fortunate to have both. Most people aren’t that lucky. I suppose rambling about it won’t help the situation. I’m going to take my self out to the barn and get some horse time in. Until next time. Have a wonderful day.
