Looong day

Kiddo has five pages of review math for the test on Thursday. It's too much. I've picked samples of what is left and she's doing those. Will definitely talk with the teacher later.

Weaseled out of the qualification board today and moved it to next week. By then, I should finally be able to remember the five laws of learning, the four learning styles, the stages of learning in the Cognitive domain, and a handful of other things.

Now to hang the sai....

Must move the curio cabinet, though, before I drop something down the stairs and break the glass.
