Let's start off with a king-size kvell-fest.
Abe got a 98 on his first college math test!!!!!! This comes after a 70 on his writing journal, so it was a huge ego boost for him. And Mom was so happy. We know that writing isn't his thing, so if he can pass that class with a C, I'll be happy. I'll be even happier, if he actually improves his writing. But we've already crossed a big hurdle- he's doing his assignments without my help! (Except for some reminding) Any help he's getting on them, comes from school resources, which he is seeking out on his own!!
(Now I jsut get to be nervous about the first computer science test- his major!)
My baby is handling college just fine. Yeah!
And I have accumulated a large batch of good mom points that I can hold over Rosie's head next time that she is in a mood. How?
Well, I was given 4 tickets to a prized Red Sox-Yankees game. But it was rained out (and I wouldn't go down to the stadium to wait while they decided to postpone the game!) But it was re-scheduled to the next night. And I mean NIGHT, it was for 9 PM!!!
The other 2 people who were going with us either had something else to do or thought that the game was too late. But I agreed to take Rosie.
I almost couldn't GIVE away the tickets to such a late game, but we ended up going with another mother and daughter- and the husband drive us BOTH ways.
We had a great time!! There were some empty seats because people didn't show up for such a late game, so the 2 girls sat for most of the game in the 2nd row. We moms were in row K. But then the people in the front row left and we all moved there. (I actually liked Row K better except for there being less leg room)
We left before the end was over, but Rosie was just so happy about having been there. And she watched the end of the game on TV to see the win.
