Yes. I'm yelling. And that other strange sound you hear? It's me. Hyperventilating. *grinning*
Thanks to everyone for their collective congratulations. I'm beaming over here.
I love hearing from all of you.

I'm still bickering with the superintendent of the kid's school. He flat out told me today that he wasn't changing the schedule. And just because "six children are struggling. It's an acceptable casualty because twenty-seven children are doing fine." The six children are advanced students. He also stated that "one year will not do irreparable damage." Nice, huh?
Still not done. I have one more school board meeting to attend. Then I'm making my decision about what to do.
And the superintendent? He accused me of having an agenda. Me. An agenda. I almost fell out of my chair. And he was defensive to the point of being derisive and pissy with me. Rather ridiculous. It was because I was questioning him. Imagine that. The balls I must have. To question the current curriculum schedule as it affects my child. Someone get the whip.

But I digress.
Tonight is my chat at Coffee Time Romance. The link is in the post below this one. Come see me if you've got the time. Once again, I've neglected my writing and my bloghopping (pity that) because of this school debacle. I'm straightening that out tomorrow.
Can't wait to see what everyone is up to.

Yay! Congrats on the release!!

And you just keep at it with the school and don't let them try and intimidate you - your agenda is the well being of your child and there ain't nuthing wrong with that!

congrats on the book. How exciting.

Your superintendent is a piece of work. I can't believe how insensitive he is. And I thought mine was a loser.

*snort* Sounds to me like HE'S the one with an agenda. What a jerk! Nail his hide to wall!
