I have a very stinky teenager and I'm tired of telling him to get in the shower. Today marks three full days without a shower. Gross doesn't even begin to describe it. I figure the kids at school will tell him all about it.

No teacher gifts in HS here, but Sarah made her own personal 'leaving school' gifts. I think I told you about that, watercolour painings over favourite passages from books. Only 5 of them, to her favourite teachers. They took a couple of days each to make.
I think elementary school is the only time we did teacher gifts, Pony.
I finally moved my Grandma's dresser into my bedroom. I left in the garage, hoping it would air out. Mostly, it still stinks of paint thinner. I thought it had aired out, but this morning, my room stinks. And my clothes smell, too. Maybe I should just throw the teenager in there!
Oh and Pony, I usually just write a sincere thank you and maybe put a small GC in it. Probably not for HS though unless it was a favorite teacher. Last year though when we moved, I had fancy schmancy cupcakes delivered monthly to the SPt/OT office which doubled as the prep room once a month for six months.
Thanks for the thoughts on teacher gifts. I think I'm going to make something for E's teacher & his Spec Ed teacher. I'll also make something for A's math teacher, only because she is amazing! It's sad to think a good teacher is rare.

I washed the sheer that goes over the top of the windows in the front room. The side panels that were drapes went into the garbage. No second guessing that move. they were over 15 years old and it was time for them to go. The sheer is the same age, but oh well.
I am officially Psycho Mom! My oldest has a problem with taking things that don't belong to him and then not telling the truth. Today, I went to the Mom Cave and discovered, my iPod was missing. At this point, flames were shooting out of my eyes and my ears. I questioned the oldest and he denied it all. I took him to school and gave him one last chance to come clean and he played dumb. So, I come home and tear apart his room. I won't bore you with the details, but I can tell you, I did not find my iPod and I was livid.
I drove back to his school and after hunting him down, I literally patted him down in the hallway. A male teacher actually walked up to us to see if everything was OK.
In the end, he did not have the iPod on him nor in his bag, but I'm hoping I embarrassed him. I also told him, I was going to the Police Station to file a report for stolen goods.
Sorry for the confusion. Here's the rest of the story.
My iPod was missing.
Earlier, I had seen A listening to music on an iPod and I thought it was his.
When I dropped off A, he had his backpack, which he wasn't supposed to be carrying, today.
When Cyclone Mom started tearing apart A's room, I found an iPod which turned out to be his, but it was super dead, so I knew he hadn't been listening to his own iPod.
I then found E's iPod, so at that point, I knew A had to have been using my iPod.
Since A had his backpack, I figured he had the missing device either in his pocket or in the backpack, so I drove back to the school to confront him.
I found nothing at school and I still have not found my iPod.
