And she's off!

Back to Disney. Again. With the whole family. Let's hope all goes well this time as we celebrate my 5 year old niece "The Princess Bob"'s birthday.

As of 7am when the family bus was supposed to pick me up, I was on the phone with my sister who had just cracked open an eye. I could hear a bear growling in the background. OOOH GOODY! I get to poke the bear. Poke. Poke-poke.

So far off to a blog worthy start.

Against better judgement of the FCB (who I think is just jealous that he can't go) I am headed out for the weekend. My reasoning is twofold. To get away from him while he has this miserable cold because he is just one Fat Cranky Bastard. And because there is an offer for me to go to Disney with free transportation and lodging and all I had to provide was a couple of meals. Done and done. No twisting of the arm needed.

I especially love going with my nieces. They provide me with endless giggles and occasional blog fodder.

And what I get to come back to? A confrontation with the school because I got a call yesterday that she had been kicked off of bus service because she missed this week at school. I wasn't about to send her while she was sick because they tend to send her right back to me, but on top of that the bus driver got pissy because they had to *gasp* pass my house every day and that messed with their schedule. WTF??? The have to pass us anyway to go get the other kid on the street and WHEN the Punk goes to school they have to stop to get her!?! What inconvenience?

I will be so glad when we move and she can start going to a NORMAL HUMAN SCHOOL.

Cuz I swear this one is run by either aliens or lower life forms in human clothing.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

I'll be thinking of you ask I bask in the glow of a gaggle of little girls and cranky bear of a BIL all from the comfort of my fart cart.

Everybody now! M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E!

Ooooh poking! I've seen you run, go ahead, POKE the bear!

FCB is just in an overall bad place these days. I'm sure dealing with Mom's estate and the associated idiocy of the sister and her crew aren't helping.

And the school? Well the bus driver gets paid to pass your house. She should think of the time she saves not having to actually stop the bus with blinky red lights and wait for Punk to monkey her way up the steps. I'd demand that the bus driver and the aide are in the meeting with the principal and bus company rep. I'd like to know where it says (IN WRITING) that if a student misses days of riding the bus that they're no longer eligible to ride it.

Poking the sleeping bear...I love that. YOu are too funny...I hope you have a great weekend. WHen are you moving? Normal schools run by humans also have issues....just be prepared. :)
