Went on vacation. Need another one.
Work stress; people didn't do stuff I wanted them to while I was away so I have to do it now.
School stress; forms to fill out, books to buy, children to chivvy.
Perry's signed up for actual high school. We thought it would be OK, but now they've signed him up for Geometry. Erm, this is the boy who finished Calculus on Khan Academy last year. He took a placement test, but they never talked to us about the results. We asked once, and they said they'd get back to us in the fall. Sigh. I wrote a note to the head of the math dept (with whom we had spoken). I hope it doesn't suck. Regular English and History I'm OK with; Spanish 2 I'm OK with (since while he's been studying Spanish for a while, a lot of it never did really stick). But he needs something special for math.
Jocelyn's school issue is again aerial silks. They have a sports requirement and we asked them if she could do aerial silks instead of joining their volleyball team. They said yes, but there's a rather large time requirement -- 6 hours a week. She's going to a class at Esh in Somerville, but that will only account for 1.25 hours, leaving 4.75 hours of practice to do. Even counting all the fiddly bits like carrying out the mat and raising the silk, and stretching beforehand, this is going to be a lot of time. Especially in icky weather. Ken's got a hare-brained plan for making a tent inside the rig to keep out the cold wind, and putting a heater in there. But it would still be nice to have another place to practice -- and the place she used to go has stopped doing silks because their instructor quit and they don't have anyone else. I told them to hire Jocelyn. :-)
Managed to get in a bike ride most of the way to work last week. 23:48 in 2:10 (elapsed 2:13, I guess I had good luck with lights) for a somewhat ordinary average of 10.8.
And kind of annoyed that I still haven't really managed to figure out what's causing my digestive issues. It's not just milk. If it's milk at all. Now I'm wondering about soy. I have no idea. All my experiments end with the organism doing what it damn well pleases, and it damn well doesn't please me.
