Thank God Aidan woke up before me. I sat up in bed when she walked in and the clock said 7:36. You can only guess what I said…thank goodnees Aidan didn’t hear me, I certainly wouldn’t want her repeating that! I set my alarm last night before going to bed, I’m sure of it but I don’t know what happened. So I threw some clothes on, got Aidan dressed and drove like a bat out of you-know-where to get Aidan dropped off at her sitters. It’s nice to have the pastor and his wife keep your kid…when you need a prayer they’re quick with it. I got over to the high school about 30 minutes after I was supposed to be there. Thank God they let me in, my room hadn’t begun testing yet.
I took my language arts test first thing and did well, I think. There were 2 essays in addition to 60 multiple choice questions. I did run into a little issue when I was about halfway through the first essay and I ran out of room. Oops! I had to go back and do a little editing to make it all fit. I definitely needed a lot more room. I’m a pretty verbose writer, I guess.

The second test was social studies. I did fine on all the multiple choice questions. The first essay question I knocked out of the park, it was on Brown v. Board of Education. I just finished a major lesson on this very thing so I know I nailed it. 🙂 The second essay was a totally different story. It dealt with the political, economic and cultural development of Eastern Europe as it relates to the Black and Caspian Seas. Uh, I have no idea where those are! As my mother always says “If you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bulls**t!” So, I did just that. Based on the info on Wikipedia, my educated guesses were fairly close to the mark. Lets just hope they don’t see through it and know I had no idea what I was talking about. Thank you all for your good wishes, thoughts and prayers. I have 1 additional exam to take, a computer competency exam week after next then I will be done with my testing requirements.
