Could it be?? Am I growing up!?
Something strange is goin on lately.. I'm "HAPPY". Like for consecutive days. I am staying AHEAD of the game for once. haha I smile for NO reason. Which by the way has been buttloads of fun lately. I was thinking, when I was growing up, I was in GATE and skipped grades blah blah. I went to the schools that were local to where I lived. I did get into a technology program at a high school outside my city which I subsequently BLEW it and was kicked out of the school.. Anyway, that's not my point. Now that I am being "forced" to move which I see as a blessing in disguise, I am researching the schools local to the city I want to move to, to check it out, see what it's like, read comments from other parents etc. Can it be that I am growing up!? I am looking to move, but I have to make sure that the schools (Jr High, and High School) that Dano will be attending are "Distinguished" schools, or rank pretty high up there. I am actually basing, for the first time in my life, where I am going to move to strictly based on Dano. Not any of my selfish wishes. Don't get me wrong, I do almost EVERYTHING for Dano, school projects, all the crap she wants etc.. It IS really, just LUCK that all the retail places I like, and the drive thru $tarbuck$, and the market and all that just "happen" to be walking distance, just like the schools... ;) Yay for me. I know I'm a parent, and that I just turned 39 but THIS specific event in my life I don't feel like a 20 something like usual. I actually feel kind of "responsible" I think. Can't do TOO much of that, I'll start acting "old", but this is pretty cool. I think we're going to go this weekend to the swap meet and get her the "beach cruiser" she really wants to ride to school. It is like 1.3 miles, so she has to have a cool bike. She wants purple. I said sure, with a bike "bling bling" bell on it, and a basket with big purple flames, and flames on the bike frame, and some other cool stuff.. Right? LOL
