Center for kids who can’t read good.

Is basically where I am at. What to do with >>this girl<< who seriously can’t read and process words….I am serious.  I think I am at a 30% success rate.  Especially after tonight. Directions?? Who needs directions? Especially when you remember to do all kinds of great things like turning off the oven and actually remembering to bring the printed out and highlighted directions as you seek your destination, *and have to be on time or a work meeting. (BTW: I didn’t forget to turn the oven off, today).  Anywho, I spent the better part of my night driving in the complete wrong direction in the hood an hour away. The kind of hood where you well up with tears because you didn’t buy “ONSTAR”, and you realize no one will find you or any trace of you when your mugger/ car high-jacker/ freddie/etc. jumps into your car and yells at you to ‘drive faster!’ into the woods. Fast forward to my 38th minute in my thomas guide-less car, when bingo- I look up in the rear view mirror and see “N”. I might not be the sharpest pencil in the box, but I knew “S” would get me home.  Brilliant. A compass in a car.

So then of course I get lost going to a friends house immediately following this expedition, which is literally 1.5 miles off the freeway. And she told me the 2 little turns I had to make on the phone and text. Still. got. lost. FAIL.
