School started Monday, and I'm going to do well, even if I have to hire a sitter one or two nights a week. I've already started my homework for next week. I'm on academic probation so I have to do really well this semester or my options shrink dramatically.

Noah's back to bad tantrums when he gets home from daddy's house, and I think he figured out that screaming is a hot button for me right now. We now have a good/bad behavior chart with consequences and rewards. I can honestly admit I have no idea what I'm doing anymore as far as discipline. *Shrugs* I can say that apartment living with a screaming preschooler and nosy neighbors sucks. Even more so than the gunshots I heard on Friday night.

I'm gearing up to move within the next 60 days I hope. Before it gets really cold and we see snow anyway. God, moving in the winter would suck so bad. Living here another winter would suck so bad.

Good luck with school. I wish I could sit for ya. Apparently, I'm on fin. aid probabtion also, but I have no idea what that means and I can't get in touch with anyone from the school's office.

I'm at a loss when it comes to discipline these days, too. I just keep on keepin' on with my same old tricks in hopes that this is a phase and it will pass. Soon.

My fin aid probation meant I had to do an appeal, but some places I think it just means you have to do really well with the next semester or they take it away after that. Pass those classes! lol I hate trying to talk to anyone in Fin Aid.

The bad marks and smiley faces are working so far this week. He really hates those bad X marks and he really, really wants a smiley sticker on his chart. I hope it helps in the long run.
