The school and I are still trying to work out whether or not Brianna can actually graduate. They say that an assignment had to have been turned in on a specific date, the same date that Brianna was swearing in at MEPS. Since the assignment requires a presentation in front of an audience, they didn't "have the resources" to reschedule it. Her teacher has shown no flexibility in this, the assistant principal suggested that Brianna didn't really want to go into the military and that's why she didn't turn in the assignment (and didn't seem to understand the fact that she's already sworn in and was scheduled to leave next month), and the counselor has repeatedly said that there is nothing she can do about it. Silver lining... Brianna has brought up the fact that she will have more time to physically train for boot camp. I can see that, but I also see another six months of dealing with this school system because of one class. A class that Brianna has a B in, even after the F for the assignment in question.
Saturday consisted of some time with Brianna and an unexpected nap that lasted three and a half hours. I even slept through the noise from the dryer when the cycle was complete even though it "reminds" us every ninety seconds or so. When it was over I barely felt more rested than when I'd gone to my room. I'm trying not to worry too much about that, but it does weigh on me a little that it feels like I'm going backward in this whole recovery process.
And, while I do wish that I didn't have to try so hard to keep everything balanced, I will continue to focus on as much good and positiveness that I can.
