jaygee~ for everyone feeling better and jake the cat to come home!
I don't know a whole lot about the IB curriculum except that it's pretty intense. I lost two of my babysitters (twins) to it...I hadn't used them recently but last time I asked their mom if they could watch Tyler, she said they're not doing any babysitting anymore because they have too much schoolwork. I don't really know if I want my kiddo doing something so demanding that he doesn't have time for anything else...I'd really love him to be able to participate in extracurriculars or have the ability to have a part-time job if he wants. If we stay where we live right now (which who knows, HS is still a long way away), our neighborhood HS has an IB program. If he didn't want to do IB, I really wouldn't want him to go to that school...it's really the only thing going for it. Otherwise, we'll probably try to get him into the STEM school (if he wants) or choice into the next closest public school, which is actually the best one in the district.
After a stressful start to my day (it was the third installment of my basic dysrhythmia class wherein I had to take a test identifying rhythms and the proper interventions which had to be passed at a 92%!!!), it's been pretty nice for the remainder. I got out of the test early enough to take C to the airport (out of town all week for work, boooooo) and then ran a few errands, picked up some Starbucks and got a pedicure. Ahhhh. It was desperately needed! I still need to work on the Christmas decorations, which may or may not happen tonight, if I get motivated enough to try to fix the top of the tree, but I also have a happy hour to go to with some girls from work. With DS, unfortunately, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do... ;-)
rr~I worked out my tabloid magazine reading skills while getting my pedicure...that counts for something, right? Actually, I just told C that since Monday is his rest day, I'm taking a rest day by association. Sounds good to me!
