Today was better. I didn't get barked at by anyone of any ranking (the new butthead child in 1st period doesn't count).
I even managed to have 2 separate heart-to-heart conversations -- 1 with Buggy on his own, and 1 with Buggy AND CrazyBrother.
I'm not any farther ahead on my stuff than I was yesterday....I'm hoping tomorrow's the day.
Fingers? Cross 'em, please...I really need to make it til Friday (the start of Spring Break).
