    e-readers are awesome gadgets. I have a Kindle w/ a keyboard. I haven't been using it much this year...brain is shifting and I have little focus for even leisure reading. =\ But it's a dependable little thing. I doubt I'll bother upgrading unless it breaks. It has a case that makes it look like a slim hard-cover book, with a built-in light. The battery lasts for a month if I don't use the light!

    I am going to give my old nook to my middle son. My eldest has my Mom's. We are going to "highjack" Bill's nook color as a tablet for Kevin.

    Prayers and good thoughts please. This morning is the CSE meeting. Bill still wants to fight for the alternative placement. I am supporting this plan, but I am not a fighter. He wants me to take the lead because people respond better to me.

    We made peace and talked about our distinct personalities and how I would let him push me around in past years, but that I am different now. I told him that I am tired of him dictating and me having to take action some times on thngs I do not agree with. He felt hurt by my intimation that he is "an ogre" that mistreats his family. He is sure that I am fixing to leave him. He wants me to let him know now instead of just walking out.

    I am not leaving.

    Good thoughts and lots of them your way P.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    Meeting did not go well.

    Good: The teachers talked about Kevin's progress and how prepared he is to go to middle school.

    Bad: I didn't speak up fast enough to present our wishes about a new school placement. I was about to speak, when Bill launched in about what we wanted. To him this was another proof that I am not on his side. I was just waiting for the right moment, because that is my personality.

    Ugly: I am on the list again. When I got to school there was a scathing email waiting for me to which I responded by defending myself and apologizing for disappointing him, again. I think that is the main problem. The older boys and I feel that he is impossible to please. Nothing is ever good enough.

    Worse, An hour after I arrived at school for my half day, I got a call from my 15 yr old's SP. Ed. teacher. He did something on his Algebra Regents in pencil that needs to be done in pen, so they needed him at school to trace over his work with pen. Otherwise, no credit would be given for that part. (Yes, the proctor should have checked this before Mike left yesterday. GRRRR)
    I could not leave again; so I had to call home. My husband was sleeping in preparation for an evening shift. I had to have my son wake him so I could ask him to take Mike to school. That did not go over well.

    I'd ask if this day could get any worse, but I'd be tempting fate.

    So sorry friends for being such a huge bummer.
