Why is so difficult for people to understand that pedagogy is not a matter of technique so there are no universal recipes?.

I went to an insulting dissertation.



(Now I'm relaxed).

Re read HBP. In that scene at the infirmary; when everybody is next to Bill, the kids tell Harry what happened at the death eater attack. Well it seems to me they forgot to drink Felix Felicity. Apart for being alive the whole thing was a fiasco.

Two kids with non scholistis.
Oedipus is tired and Athena is scared of her teacher, I let them stay home. My daughter (9) was at the end of her teacher rage on Friday, it seems that the bitch shout to her in an awful way. She trembled and sob without control while telling me. The poor thing recognized she shouldn't have lost her homework, but also she is very aware that this was an act of violence and power abuse (Kids with critical thinking are not the best for school system)

She is a professional and need to behave like such. I don't buy the I'm like their second mother crab. I don't send them to school for having second mom. I send them to learn in the hands of a caring professional, as such I demand quality. Would I accept a pediatrician screaming at my kids? No. Well, neither I tolerate this crazy cow shout my daughter. Even if is common practice here is it against their professional ethics. Last term I shouted a group of students for the first time in 15 years of teaching, I apologize for shouting...even if I let them rot in hell for cheating.

In time like this homeschooling allure me. A lot.

Today hubby will go to talk to the teacher. Why hubby? I don't trust my self in this situations. AND he is a man in a chauvinistic culture. I learn to use that to my benefit long ago. (For Chileans: As my little boy say, this school is machistoso, well Chile is machistoso. Isn't it?).

When I shouted my kids in the past, I'd always talked to them before and I excused my self for loosing control; I doubted this bitch will do it unless "motivated" by hubby. He is a little like Snape when angry, stoned face, low voice, firm tone....Well I stop here or I'll assaulted him right now.

Did I tell you that is less and less grinish?. This weekend was a lot better than the previous weeks


Oedipus and I has a mother and son weekend. Athena went to Con Con (yea Fran, we should meet) with mom and my sister.
We went to the Avant Premiere of Chicken Little, this will be the last because mom will retire on January first. (So no premiere for Narnia, shit!. I'm use to free tickets at Disney movies, Opera and theatre). We also try to get into the art museum, but the park that sourrounds it was full of young people juggling, street theatres, drummers groups. Oedious (and I) was delighted, we spendt the whole evening there.


Lots of call for scholars at the newspaper. Crossfinguers.

Three fights with hubby in three days. A record. Not one I like.
But we are both tense. I hate what money could do to couples. Is not the money for it self but the stress of it.
Sometimes the virtue of the ones you love could be turned into vices. At least that is what happening to me at the time. Víctor is the most caring, generous and comunitary person I ever met, and that is irritaiting me the hell out of it!
At this moment I don't need him playing Mother Theresa with the world, I need him supporting ME and taking care of the house logistics.
We are broken, BROKEN, but he invite the workmen (long story) to drink bear on Friday, to lunch here yesterday (That was avoided because evil wife schreeked like a bangee) and to eat chineese food at a restaurant tonight AND he is anoyed with me because I am in a mood about all this.
He also (and I acepted this more gracefully) comitted to take his dad to doctor apointment and some exams for several days. WEll my father in law is old, he can't move alone, well it is ok to do that, even if he had four more sisters. But Mordor is just at the other side of the city, so he need to wake at six to reach my in law every day. Then get to the other side, and finally take him back. Yesterday we ran out of gas and had no more money for it, pretty, isn't it? Mercifully my sister in law lend us money. LEND us, for taking care of my in law, is her Dad too!. Grrrrrr.
Even my mum is abusing him. She bought an old appartment and he is completly re making it for free! He start working before christmas. He is in his hollydays for God sake! Last year was the need of making some rooms at my sister in laws house soo my monsters in law could leave there (fair); the year before that one was the house of a very loved friends, wich was eaten by those flying ants that eat wood (no idea the english name). So Victor re build their house. I like that, I hate that at the same time.
I mean, this saint complex is getting me tired. I love him (that is out of the question) but I need to end my thesis, this month. And is not politicallly correct for me to complain, because he is "so goooooood". That is the Greek choir every friend said every time I complain. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Thank God fandom brought me some good updates to cheer up.
Az I ougth you not only the lovely term: monster in law, but the Sauron and Mordor mental pictures (Now all my RL friends are refering to their monster in law as Sauron)AND the updated of Objects in a shitty day

Is good to bitch, I felt re new after this post. Thanks.

I’m exhausted. Hubby had to give a report to the Dean of a professional career he had created. As he is currently being a very depressed hubby, had serious case of brain fog and couldn’t write a word.
Guess what? Right.
I produced a full report in three hours. It look pretty decent considering the circumstances.

Hubby’s situation has me really concern. He has those dark thoughts, up and downs days. I’m having a very watchful eye on him, and don’t dare to let him alone too much. At the same time, I’m tire of this, selfish as it sounds. But, well part of being a couple is to support each other… don’t mean that I actually need to enjoy it.

For all the ones in Florida, all my sympathies.

Does anyone else had LJ problems?, mine is being bitchy: Double posts, don’t show the pages, etc

And the ice of the cake:

My brand new molar fall while eating a raising! I put the piece in a napkin. When I look for it, my boy had threw it into the trash can.
How could you explain that unpredictible urge to clean?, I mean we are talking about a 5 yr old boy which I need to beg him daily to put his things in order! Lucky me.
Doctor told me it could happened (The mollar not the boy cleaning), and if it does I need to fly to the clinic (It was a complicated surgery, details are boring).
I went as an emergency, and stupid receptionist told me that emergencies were till 19:00 and it was 19:10. With a lot of calm and dignity I told her to write that explanation down, if something happened to me she will assume the legal responsibility of it.
Then I smile sweetly like Umbridge.
Rest assured you that she let me go and talk to my dentist. I hate bullying people and I hate saw my suspicious confirm that sometime people don’t care unless they deal with prepotency. GRRRRR.
I feel victorious but with a guilty conscience.

Went to a speech today, it was about the Piaget - Vigotsky debate, really enlightening, love it. Have lots of good feelings with the speaker, there was a moment in which he only talk to me, forgetting the rest of the audience, by the quality of the questions made, it was no wonder.
I send my students to listen, I was disappoint about how little they understand about epistemic problems, no wonder education is so low. Grrrr!
They tend to make of education a technique, not a reflexive process, as such they despised theory as oppossed to "practice" then the only result is that they teach ruled by "common sense". Why bother to spent five years at university if they are only going to reproduce their own school and family experience?. Grrr!
Tomorrow he will speak to the doctorate program, it was my fault meddle with college girls. No wonder they complain at the bibliography I gave them, they lack of critical thinking. Grrrr.
Felt very Snapey today. But I still know I can teach them, at least from my subject (not psychology, thank God)

Have you ever been told not to bite hard sweets?, well I've been admonish thousands I have a broken teeth into three parts, each moving at its one hurt. Hubby will take me to the dentist after his nap. NAP!!!!!!!, my teeth hurt know.

On the funny side, I open our security box (Is small, electronical and useless...huby insist in having one before our economical debacle) What do you think he kept there? Cash?, dollars?, jewells?...nah: A big pot of Nuttella, a hazzelnut chocalate sauce! That is our family wealth.
It amuzed me the idea of buglers trying to open it only to find a half empty jar of hubby favorite sweet.

A cousin (female?) of my husband has emigrate to the states and live her kids behind (I will kept my mouth shut about my opinion of THAT).
One of her teen daugthers was supoused to spend a few days in our house since she is from out of town. Saturday night his uncle called us really worried asking if the girl was here. Nope, no trace of her.We were very worried.
An hour latter she called us, to her bad luck, hubby answer the phone. My husband is the kind of soft and control man when make a dress down. The girl ask him in a very coquetish tone, if he could be his cover, she just "forget" the cell phone and "miss" the bus, so she was espending the day wih some friends in another city and cant call her family (but call us).
Huby tell her she was old enough for make her decissions and face the consecuences. He will let her choose: calling her guardians personally, or he would do it. The little shit (or is it chit?) opt for calling her granny (soft woman). She always do as she pleased, and her mum is working as a maid in the states, missing everybody. She spend all the money her mum send in expensive clothes. She is a spoil girl.GRRRR.
She will arrived home tomorrow, I has no interest in reciving her. It is a lot of responsabilty, I cant trust her. What if something happend to the girl?

Ok. I need to scream. AHHHHHHHHH!
I'm enraged with hubby, problem being, I don't know how to manage rage in a constructive critiscsm.
He starts a Master, second one. Now he is very stress -I might add a little depress, and he get block and incapable of organize him self. So he ask me for help, at any time, disrupting my routine. And now, I'm not only mother of two, student off a PhD, worker, but I'm also helping (for lack of a more potent word) with his Master. So I'm getting really stress, have less time with the kids, FMS start again with aches in all the body (I had it under control)and having sleeping disorder (I meam DISORDER). I felt guilty of been so anger, and felt guilty of feeling guilty (stupid me, isn't it?).
What I really want to say to him would involve lot of insulting, because I'm nut with him right now. I have sent him lots of "Ok, this is the last essay", warnings, only to find him paralyzed in front of the computer screan the next time. And don't have the heart for refuse helping him. But we are in the second month of a two years program.
I trully know that is more a matter of not knowing how to say NO and manage rage, than a matter of love. (I love him non the less).
I want to send him to the analyst but he "don't believe in them" (as if it is a matter of faith, please), meanwhile, he don't ask for help to any one except me.

PSM very phantom is near, or at least I want to blame it for my lost of control:
Want to learn how to reduce the size and weight of a picture, so I spend a lot of hours doing it. No matter what the photoshop say, LJ won't accept it. Grrrr. So every time anyone is near me I just growl in a very snapish mood.
