Now, the Matron has made frequent reference to her own intensity, even apologizing for the first entire two years of Stryker's life, an era in which the Matron felt it her duty to sanitize hand rails EVERYWHERE and let everyone know that her child was in the house--and was special. And could possibly fall ill. Or die. Or experience discomfort and/or unpleasant emotion. "Is that fan blowing on the baby? He blinked! Is that normal?"
You get the picture.
Reader, can you come right over lock her up for about two weeks?
Her first child has left the womb again, ejected from a secure, warm and unchanging environment into the fetid waters of secondary school!!
Stryker has had ONE full day of Junior High School.
The Matron has felt the need to email and phone several people at said institution. Her trouble? She has jumped on that need like a magic flying carpet, following that need wherever and as far as she can! She has scratched that itch and sent that email.
Because after just ONE day of Junior High School, the Matron has emailed the principal, the counselor (twice), the algebra teacher and Spanish teahcer.
She has phoned the receptionist and the school nurse.
She has faxed, twice.
She has dutifully created her account in the Parent Portal--and checked it, every 15 minutes.
She has been to the website for the algebra textbook, insuring her son can access the tutorials and free assistance.
She sent a copy of Stryker's schedule to a dear friend whose own children went to this Junior High for several years, asking friend if she, and her children, could go over the schedule and teachers with a fine tooth comb and complete a small report on the quality of instruction Stryker was lined up to receive.
She has yet to call the bus company but looked up that number, just in case.
Heaven help Murray Junior High School. Hell, let's toss in the whole school district.
Here comes the Matron. She's just going to apologize in advance.
Wednesday Fat Ass Update! The Matron has eliminated whole hunks of her novel and is now on page 28. She's working on her writing instead of her body because the former is in greater need!
