I nearly dumped him today. I told him I was willing to do so even though I have been loyal to him for many years. I just couldn't take any more of the broken promises, the delayed actions. A girl has needs- ya know what I mean? Every year there's one glitch or another and I find myself sparking, angry, and wanting to call the whole deal off. I became so flustered, I fell into using sarcasm and saying, "Nice!" when I didn't even mean it. I don't easily come that unhinged, so when I find myself in knots, I just have to count if it's all worth it or not.

What am I talking about?

I had a huge conflict when ordering some of my daugher's home school materials from a company which-shall-not-be-named. The anxiety those people put me through makes me feel like a drug addict in need of a scholastic fix. "Give me the books, man. I just need the teacher's manual. I get shaky when it's been too long." I ended up feeling like making a deal with the devil. I told Chris, the sales supervisor at the-company-which-shall-not-be-named that I wouldn't cancel my contract IF in the future, I was allowed to order my ALL materials well in advance of the course. I've been told numerous times this was against store policy. However, I was thinking six weeks, but Chris wrote a note on my account authorizing me six months advanced materials ordering power. Now I can score some third grade phonics action before I'm white knuckling it.

Just send me the curriculum, and no one gets hurt!
