Things and stuff

On Monday daughter starts 10th grade. She is ready to go back to school after goofing off all summer. She is starting with high hopes, I hope her teachers are kind, and I hope she is able to take in all that they have to give her. She is all set with school clothes, tomorrow husband is taking her to get her hair done. Her hair is a pretty reddish brown. It looks good, it goes with her face. I am used to it.

By tomorrow it will be blue. C points out it will match her eyes. Yay for her going for what she wants. I like her hair the way it is-- but I will adjust.

We have found a place for rent that I would like. It is cheaper than where we are now, and it is near another park for Hazel. It is in a quiet part of town. It would be quite good if we get it. i have hopes.

Did Spanish today. a few phrases--

1.Upon leaving the station I saw a mouse.

2.In spite of this, she opened the window

3 They have to stop drinking

4 You can spend the night with us

5 They left without knowing

6 She has to know..

7 He arouses his peers

I think arouses is used in the sense of 'wakes up.' But it is funny anyhow. As usual, I have the sense of a story just out of reach.

It's almost like a story! She opened the window despite the mouse because she was drinking. She's had so much, she has to spend the night, but then left without knowing...about the mouse? He wakes everybody else to tell them about the mouse? SILLY!

Good for you, letting daughter try out blue hair. My kids all tried different stuff like that. My youngest daughter came home with a BUZZ CUT!! The friend who did it was all apologies, for giving in to her demand!! I said "Don't worry. It's hair, it'll grow!" There are certainly worse things, and if you 'give a little' on stuff like hair, they don't keep pushing for crazier stuff (at least in my experience).YMMV.

Will this be a new school for your daughter?

Good luck with getting a new place! Will that mean daughter will change schools?

No new school. That is a good thing. The school she is in is not perfect, but it is good for her I think. She has several teachers that she really likes. She is lead sax in her school band, and has done a little composing this summer. Her music teacher is a wonderful young woman, (young enough to be my daughter!) so that is good.

Yes, it is good to try different things with hair, and clothes at her age-- figure out what she wants. I just hope she likes the dye job.

I'm glad she has several teachers she likes. That can make a big difference at this age!
If she doesn't like the blue, doing a dark brown "over the counter' hair dye/rinse should help until it grows out. My kids loved to do orange, green, etc.!!LOL! Better than trying drugs, right??

'They left without knowing.'

There's your modern condition, right there.

Hope you manage to get the new house!

Hope she's had a good start back at school :)

Agree that it's great you're fine with her experimenting with her hair colour - over here you wouldn't be allowed into school with blue hair, which I think is just silly. But then we home ed, so the kids *can* have blue hair if they like. Yay to freedom of hair colour all round!!!

Also laughing at number 7...!

I'm keeping all my extremities crossed that you manage to get the new apartment. Let me know how you get on!

How does C like her new hair colour? I have always been a big scaredy cat when it come to dying my hair, so I think she's very brave :}

7 He arouses his peers
The lieutenant and the captain are still at it then?
