She said that all the principles were running around crazy as well as some teachers. They had the police there for narcotics (yikes), several fights that broke out, and something that she mumbled under her breath (I decided not to have her repeat it). She stated that they had the police there for a while checking lockers and questioning students and of course she did not divulge students names. The ones fighting were students she said were normally good kids. Not the kind you would expect this type of behavior from. Again not divulging students names.
I am glad that Devin was not there. Not that he would have been involved the fights or involved with the drugs, but I am just glad he did not have to witness any of it.
Speaking of Devin he did complete 5 of the 7 tests that the teacher had for him. YEA!
But then yesterday when I got home I received a letter from one of my financial institutions. There seems to have been MANY withdraw ls from the company that runs Devin's online computer game. Withdrawals of $200 of which I only authorized $74. I asked that the bank close that account and tonight when I got home I found out that this company is located in another country!
I searched all over the web site and finally found and email contact. Needless to say I wrote them explaining the situation, that I did not care how it happened but that it is to STOP and to STOP NOW.
When I asked the bank to close the account explaining that these were unauthorized charges, they told me that I would have to wait until there was a zero balance. I asked "did I not just give you a check to cover the balance. Which would make it zero?" Ms explained that they had to wait for any other transactions. Um HELLO did I not just tell you that these were unauthorized charges? No matter she said, they have to wait and I was instructed to call back in the morning and then it would be decided if THEY could close the account.
Hum, is that right? Do I have no say? Can anybody just continue sending withdrawals and I have nothing to say about it? I do not think so. I told ms that whether or not I would not be paying for any other transactions. They (the bank) werre informed of fraudulent charges therefore I will pay no more especially since I have paid for the ones prior to their knowledge.
Bank do NOT make me mad, I may seen nice and quite, but I have a big mouth and the claws come out when I am feel cornered! And you are pushing me into a corner.

Hear a song on the radio while driving down the road that just makes you smile?
For example every time I hear Boys of Summer by Don Henly I am instantly transported to a time many many years ago driving down the highway to get to an afternoon class as college. I can instantly feel the heat on my face and the wind whipping though my windows. It makes me smile and just feel all over good. Or here is one for the 80-90's You Spin Me Round by Dead or Alive. I am instantly out with my girlfriends a club. Dancing and having fun.

Chore No 2: The Dentist office called asking if I could come in early, they were ahead of schedule. I said sure and off I went. I got to see the dentist at 11:30, after a shot of Novocaine, lots of drilling, another shot of Novocaine (I guess I was not numb enough, I jumped) more drilling and finally that nasty gooey blue rubber junk was taken out of my mouth and a temporary cap put in I got to leave. Oh yea in addition I was informed that "MY PART OF THE BILL" would be $625.50. WTH!
Now the entire right side of my face is numb but not my teeth or gums!
Chore No 3: Devin has home bound instruction again this evening for 5 hours at the local library. Part of me is very glad that they offered this option with his suspension. But the other part of me (the part that did not know he was doing his work but not correctly) is thinking what is the point. He does not care enough to even do the work much less correctly. He is still FAILING his classes. I am at a loss, he will have to go to summer school this summer and take zero hour and probably have to go to summer school the next two years just to catch up from this years bombing.
This is my day and life today in a nutshell. Off to the library for fun (sarcasm inserted here).
Update; therapist believes Devin is/has Aspergers. I was told to go do some research at the symptoms and see if I agree. Again WTH! First he has ADHD, then another doctor states he also has ODD (oppositional defiant disorder). Yet another thinks he is depressed. So now we add yet another diagnosis to his list of possibles. I just wish that someone just agree and tell me how to deal with this kid. Though he has been better lately his is reverting back to his old self. I still think it has to do with his friends. He did not start reverting until they were allowed back into his day. UGH boys...and their friends!
Great, just received a phone call from his instructor. He is refusing to do any work and I have to go pick him up. So much for his return to normality. Now what to do?

I always have a good time when we go out with our friends! They all have the best personalities.
We also have wonderful neighbors. Everyone of them are one of the nicest people you would want to meet.
We even have our own beer & wine brewer in the neighborhood! Jim & Laure are so full of energy (I guess they need it as they have 5 kids) and he makes the BEST port I have ever tried! He smokes a mean pork butt also.
Michelle (lives two houses down from me) got Vicky (Lives down the street from us) to move to this subdivision, and in turn Vicky got us to move to this subdivision.
Then Karen (lives across the street from Vicki) moved in just after we did. We have street parties, holiday parties, and casual gatherings.
I know I sound like I am bragging, well I am. I consider myself extremely lucky that I have such wonderful neighbors.
