Well, this will likely be an interesting week for us parents. BPS lottery results are expected to be mailed out soon, and some of the charter schools will hold their lotteries this week. Will the BPS lottery computer be benevolent or will it be a HAL 9000? "I'm sorry, Kelly. I'm afraid I can't do that." [Unassigned.]
I wish BPS was set up to email lottery results to families, or to at least give us the option of mail vs. email notification when we register. You'd think they'd save a lot on postage, not to mention the time the Family Resource Centers devote to fielding calls from anxious parents.
Speaking of anxious parents, I've tried to keep myself occupied lately and not obsess over my K1 choices. What's done is done. So I've caught up on a lot of reading, including TC Boyle's The Women and, embarrassingly, a certain series of teenage vampire novels. I'm nearing the end of my library cache, and I wouldn't mind any recommendations for new novels. I suppose I'm due for a good narrative non-fiction too. Any suggestions? I really need to keep my mind busy this week.
