Uneasy dreams

Law enforcement authorities were searching a one-square-mile area from XXXX and XXX late Monday night for a suspect wanted for an alleged shooting incident in XXXXXXX County.
Authorities were looking for a white male who is 5 feet, 11 inches, tall, weighing 165 pounds with tattoos all over, according to scanner reports.

This is approximately three miles from my house. And I didn't hear about it until about 11:00 p.m. last night. We were watching the Dallas game and I DVR'd Medium and UFC Ultimate Fighter 2.
I've tried to find out what happened, but I can't find it anywhere today. Grrrrrrrrrrr
Needless to say, I didn't sleep with the ear plugs in last night. Hopefully this idiot has been caught.
On a lighter note, Medium was EXCELLENT last night. It sucks to have to wait three months to see a Part 2, but it was really good.
Tonight is Open House at the chickens' school. I'm not sure how many dirty looks I'll receive, but I'll let y'all know. I plan on telling the principal that I'll be back this next Monday for another chat with her. And then I'm going to spend two days next week going to class with my two younger chickens.
And this is what kills me: I have talked to teachers from the elementary up. I have heard from other parents. I can't find ONE person besides perhaps the principal and superintendent who think this system is working. But no one else will speak up. So I persevere.
I've literally pushed my editing up and worked my heiney off this week to just have the time to swing this next week. Will it change anything? From my experience last time, I doubt it.
But I hope. And I continue. And my kids know that I care enough to put everything aside for them. Even this battle has its perks.

I love Medium. It's a great show.

Good luck on the school thing. Yet another reason I homeschool.
