Oh whoa is me...now everyone tell me how special I am!
HHB got the letter today that said she did not make AP Theater. So now starts the flood of posts to social media about how depressed she is, and that she's feeling worthless! Here comes the reply flood from everyone telling her how great she is. I'm actually surprised that she didn't immediately call DH crying about it, as that is her usual thing. She knows dear daddy will tell her she is the best as always, and that he is so sorry she didn't make it! Gag! I can tell you why she didn't make it...those failing grades! HHB probably will not get 2nd semester credit for chemistry or geometry...5 days of school left, and she is failing both classes. Supposedly, she can pull the semester grade IF she scores really high on her final...but she made 60's on her mid-terms in both of these courses her first semester, barely passing the semester for credit while living with us. I'm certain that grades were a consideration for picking who would be in AP Theater. I mean, you don't want students who are at risk of not being able to perform because of failing grades.
So whoa is me....didn't make theater...probably going to have to take stuff over, which means maybe no color guard. I wouldn't be surprised if they make her drop guard to make room in her schedule to retake chemistry and geometry! High schools really don't like keeping students past 4 years, and they will drop you from electives if they have to in order to get you graduated!
Oh, and let's not forget the sob story HHB was giving DH today about BM and stepdad being broke! I doubt they really are...I'm betting stepdad is saying that because he is tired of BM mismanaging the child support and he is getting stuck paying for crap! HHB tried to tell him they didn't even have money to buy her clothes (which DH pays plenty in child support for her to get clothing)! Of course, we have to remember that HHB thinks she needs new clothes every month, and probably has more clothing than BM and stepdad and little brother put together! She did stop by her several weeks ago and picked up a load of clothes! However, from pictures I've seen, she may have gained too much weight for her clothes! But broke? She got a new dress for that prom (no, the one DH had to take her did NOT fit) and shoes. She also got her nails done, and somehow has money to buy hair dye every other week (as she is always changing her color). Yeah, my bet is that stepdad got like me, and put an end to the crazy spending because BM would not say no...like DH! They better not start trying to ask DH for extras! He really is broke...he has obligations to this house that I'm already having to help cover, and he has his bills (car, credit cards, etc.). This bank remains closed!
