I just don't know...

Got a call from Andrew's first period school teacher a while ago. He hasn't gotten into any trouble (thank goodness), but he's refusing to do any work in her class. Might explain his grades since starting at the new school. If he doesn't start straightening up by after the Xmas holidays, both my mom and I are going to remove the PS3 and laptop computer from him until the end of the school year... they'll be kept at her place.

Both my mom and I have done everything in our power to try to get him straightened out, to make sure he makes it through school, but at the rate he's going, looks like he may completely flunk out, not getting a diploma or GED of any kind. IF he does that, I'm letting him know, in no uncertain terms, that once he turns 18, he's not going to stay around here leeching off me indefinitely. He'll have to find somewhere else to live... maybe go back to his mom.

With this high blood pressure... I don't need the extra freggin' stress!
cheers

A confession... I've been checking Facebook and Twitter before accessing my LiveJournal Friends page lately.

My son doesn't understand why I like to watch a lot of old silent movies from time to time.

My son doesn't understand why I like to listen to a lot of old-time radio shows from time to time.

I don't like those LiveJournal posts that are just cumlative Twitter Updates... yet this post LOOKS like one!

I REALLY need to get back to digitizing all those old cassettes my friends and I recorded in the 80's/early 90's, before they turn to dust!

Fark those newest Beatles reissue CDs, the ones I bought in '86 are good enough... already had 'em on LP before then, not buying a third time!
