Hoot Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 Uggh! I'm so over this week. DS13 spent the first part of the week completely botching every. single. grammar lesson. He's given me good reason to change what we're using, but I don't know WHAT to change it to. DS suddenly remembers that he hasn't done his IEW writing homework for the week so he's rushing and emotional over that. And then he realizes that he never did his current events research and speech. At that point I'm so frustrated with him that I decide to give him a 0 be done. Then, I got a ton of emails from co-op about how they're changing DS's memory verses for Bible AGAIN. This will be the third time, now. I've entered them into Scholaric twice and I'm FUMING that I have to do it a third time. I swear, if they change it again I'm pulling him from the class. Wednesday, I notice that male cat is running back and forth to the litter box a lot but only peeing a little each time. Not like him at all. Then, late that night he pees in an empty litter box and I see blood. CARP! I know what this could mean, especially in males, so I'm up with him all night to make sure he's still able to eliminate at least a little bit every time he goes. The next morning I have to be at work at 6:30. I run to work for the 2 hrs. I typically work and then rush home to check on male cat. In the meantime, I've called the vet and they want to see him Right. This. Minute. And, it's co-op day. All day. From 8:30 - 5:30. Any other day would have been no big deal. An hour and a half at the vet, a shot, a cath., 3 meds., and $250 later I'm finally at co-op. On the bright side, his diagnosis (FLUTD) is probably the best we could have hoped for and it was caught VERY early. Today, I figure it's been a long week so I'll take DS to the zoo as a treat when I get home from work. He's finished all but math and history while I was at work, so he can just do that when we get home. We're home by 1pm and he's still doing JUST. MATH. at 4pm. And, this is the second time doing this lesson since he got a 64% on it Wednesday. :banghead: Seriously, I get that he will have days (or weeks) where he just doesn't understand things, but he just gets SO overwhelmed and emotional when he does ANYTHING poorly. History never happened, and I don't care. I want to go read the last chapter of "The Giver," curl up on the couch and watch a movie. Instead, I'll dole out meds to the male cat, do the same for the two rats I'm sitting for, clean cages, feed the rest of the herd, and fall into bed with my clothes half on and half off.
