Sleeping in

Among its many standardized tests, Pennsylvania administers the Keystone exams in high school for specific subjects — algebra, biology, literature, possibly others that I don’t know about. These tests are given almost at the end of the semester, and any students who are not enrolled in these courses get a three-hour delay for school on those days.

Yes. Three-hour delays for six days!

This doesn’t mean I get to sleep an extra three hours in the mornings, much as I might like that thought; after all, I do still have to get the girl ready and off to school. However, I do get an extra hour to hour and a half, and I’m loving it!

What are you grateful for this Monday morning?

  1. I am grateful for all the times I’m able to leave my irritation and frustration and anger behind and just do the things. (Some days it’s hard – like today!)

    Also – three-hour delays? Crazy!

    • Hugs on the days it’s hard to leave it behind.

      Six days of delays — and of course, the girl wants to know why she doesn’t get any!

  2. I thought she liked school. No?
