Sort of Done

So, I've been breaking the "school work only until 8:00" rule pretty badly so far this year.  I decided over the weekend that it is not the end of the world if we have to skip a day of social studies or if homework goes home a day late.

So, although I only finished next week's homework, spelling tests, and E's file folder game (revision 3), and the questions for the next 2 chapters of Charlie, I'm done for the night.

Incidentally, that's not as impressive as it sounds -- they use the same pictures for everything but Charlie, so a simple find and replace is pretty quick.

Also?  These are fantastic, especially if you use extra ricotta cheese.  :-)

Finally, I will have something to say about this (and this, this, and this) later, but my brain's not up to it tonight other than to say someone better stop this trend in its tracks right now.  People with disabilities are just as entitled to whatever form of physical pleasure they wish to participate in as are the rest of us.

Meanwhile, I recommend this discussion of the Ashley Treatment from when it first hit the news.  Also, you can find a variety of blog entries about the Ashley Treatment here.

(None of this is to say that I don't dread the thought of, say, M -- with her already existing issues Down There and her intense sensory problems with seams and tags in her underwear -- hitting That Time in her life...but girls with disabilities are just as entitled to become women with disabilities as I as a girl nerd was to become a grown up nerd.)
