Academic Expungement and Mothers Out Law

I know I've been quiet on the blog front lately. Mea culpa.

Have started another term at school, occasionally to my crushing dread, but I'm working on it. Only two courses with my favourite professor, who is retiring in April, and that's it.

Was speaking with the advisor for students with disabilities today and she noted that my transcript has a lot of.....blips (read: craters, with zeros) and that she thought I would be able to get most of them wiped, given the events of the last couple of years. I don't know if I can do that. I don't know if I am worth that. I'll work on it.

Unrelated, but related to the title, Lady's Mom mentioned wanting to drop by this weekend. Both of us had the same, resounding "EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" reaction. My mom? When my Mom drops by she brings KFC and chats for a bit. Lady's Mom will spend the visit prowling through the house critisizing how we've got things laid out and whether we have healthy groceries in the cabinets. Not interested, thank you very much.

Well, that's it for now.


PS: I will provide new Mackers pictures, and soon :) He's getting big, getting his big boy teeth now, too!

You ARE worth it. Do it!

Can you meet the in-law somewhere neutral so that she doesn't come to your place? Need a sign...Friends welcome anytime...Relatives by appointment only. ;D

Oh my gosh. When my mother in law comes she does nothing but criticize too. I made a game out of it. We both guess what her first critisism will be and place a bet on it.

Oh mom... I indeed will not be letting her invite herself over to pick at our home. Nnnnnope.

I have that sign that Lisa wrote about! Meeting somewhere is a good idea if possible. Then you can leave when you want it to be done with too-and yes you definately ARE WORTH IT~!

Believe me, my transcript is a roadmap of my life. For every blip I have there was something going on that was major in my life.

I hate having to explain it every time to total strangers...when looking for work, applying for Grad school, etc... I'd rather forget all those times where my sister held me back because she kept screwing up and I was the only one there to catch her stupid @$$.

If you can get it cleared it will be less of a headache in the future.

Can't wait for the Pics of Mackers. :-)
