I realise that I havent blogged an update of our 'drama' for nearly a week now. I will have this done by tonight probably. I'd much rather sit here eat Hula Hoops, watch TBBT and recover from yet another meeting with yet another school in yet another district, with yet another Headteacher and still minus the appropriate paperwork. I wish I had some elevator musak playing in my brain right now... I envy Homer Simpson.
